Great day yesterday, though it started off bad. I was supposed to show up at a customer's site at 8:00am, rather than my normal routine of meeting at the office at 8:30am. But I was so doped up on cold medicine that night that I forgot to change my alarm. Whoops. Got down there at 8:15, which is pretty damn good considering that I left at the same time and had to drive further away.

After that, though, things were gravy. The list of things that I had to do were knocked out before Jesse called to check up on me...I was waiting around for the last two compers to finish a spyware check. That kind of surprised him (in a good way). Since he had to come down there anyway to bring a work order/bill for them, we went ahead and knocked out all of the things that we were going to do today instead. During all that, I was on my game. Jesse would do something, and I'd point out things that he was doing wrong that needed to be changed. Not to be an asshat, but they were things that would be tough as hell to track down after the fact, and it saved both us and the customers time and money. I also showed him a few minor things that'd make it all work a little more efficiently - nothing major, just a few tweaks of things that he hadn't thought about. I finished up the new list of things that he brought with him for me to do, so while I was waiting for him to finish up the last thing that he was working on, he'd quiz me on various test questions that were related to what we were doing. I busted out all of the answers without any doubt or hesitation.

Yeah, I was pretty happy. Just wish that all days could be like that. ^_^

After lunch, it was pretty slow. Till I sliced my thumb open with a saw blade. That was fun. So was carrying the parts for 15 new computers up the stairs. Guess that's what I'll be doing all day today, making over a dozen new boxes from scratch.

Not much else to talk about. Ralph is still the same, and still running that fever. I set a new record and went to bed last night at eight-something. I ate supper, watched Survivor with my folks, and then dozed off in the big chair while waiting for my tax forms to print out. I gave in at that point, set my paperwork down, and crawled in the bed. I suppose I needed it.
