Lenny Kravitz has to be one of the most beautiful humans on the face of the planet. TOTP2 was just on, and they had an old video, from a time when he still had his long dreads. Mmmmn. Phil threatened to put a towel under me. :)
Anyway, family dramas aside, work goes on. I went to bed at 9:30 last night, and slept through until the alarm went off at 5:30. I was so very tired. I actually got a lot of work accomplished today, amidst the server problems and the noise of all of the shrill ladies on their eternal personal phone calls.
Resolution to self: I *must* stop being such a bitch at work. I am stressed, and stupid people are pissing me off, but I have to stop being sarcastic and (I admit it) outright cruel. I just don’t have any patience anymore, perhaps because I’m so stressed, and I’ve been ripping people’s heads off. Not quite literally, but they probably feel as though I’d done it physically rather than just verbally. I don’t like myself much these days.
The company that I work for is a very old British company, who has been through a tough time in recent years and is now trying to modernise and globalise. They are moving much of their production overseas, which should start to put the company back on a stable financial footing. The new site should do the rest. There has been a lot of bad feeling locally, as many people in the factories were laid off. Extremely unfortunate, but necessary given the difference in salaries here and in the Far East, and also the fact that the work quality meets or exceeds what we were doing here. I started during a very turbulent time, and it’s been tough for us all. But hopefully things should get better.
Anyway, I am going to go read for a bit, and have a glass of wine. I will try to emulate Kipper’s example of fat, glossy, totally relaxed sloth, and enjoy the evening. ;)
