Working in the superdome has its challenges. Occasionally having to dodge disaster tourists... Being forced out of your normal parking lot for Saints games... Dealing with event traffic on a regular basis... And, then there is them painting epoxy next to our air intake filter for 3 weeks in a row. We have quite literally and forcibly been made to get high on epoxy fumes (not to mention the exhaust from the zamboni and other heavy machinery that is being run) every day for the last 3 weeks. Finally today after everyone in the office reported that they'd begun to "sleep like the dead" and feel perpetually nauseated, we were given permission to break and work from home as needed. Which is obviously going to cut down on productivity, but the being high was cutting into productivity as well, so I guess it evens out.

All in all, I still like the new job. Then again, I might feel differently when the epoxy withdrawal symptoms kick in.

in honor of my own immense stupidity and in hopes of keeping me on an even keel, i've decided to post once more. it's a slow work day and my own machinations to entertain myself by emailing friends have brought a pile of awkward down on at least one of my friendships.

NEVER use the printscreen function to email something to a person if you use two monitors. you will copy something from the other monitor without realizing it and send it to someone that you don't want to read it. and it will be your own damn fault.

i've been reading craigslist missed connections too much. most of them are about various ppl in the service industry, so i'm always tempted to track them down and tell them about their "missed connection."

PS: i've vowed to give up binge drinking. well, at least binge drinking without a very well thought out excuse.
