One week on from my one and only chance to argue with a McCain-Palin supporter, I had the following text message exchange with our poker game (and Halloween party) host:
Friend: "Poker tonight gang"
Me: "Is [name] coming?"
Friend: "Unfortunately not, I think we broke him"
Me: "Yes we can"
Two weeks on from my description of my complicated ass-covering system, I had my annual review meeting with my supervisor.
Paraphrased verdict: "waaaaay too much detail, please summarise this information as number of grants approved, rejected and pending. Tidy up and simplify the original spreadsheet and put it in Google Documents so your activities are more visible to me and the other members of the group".
(I'm trying, but Google Documents consistently crashes the crappy IE6 browser I am forced to use!).
I'm still going to keep up the detailed activity tracking though, you never know when it might come in handy.
Right, off to dissect the election results with my poker buddies.
