Day two was alright. A little harder to wake up, work itself was mostly ok. Two meetings, more tinkering with Outlook/Exchange, and a case of the flashbacks. One of the other admins asked me if I could help him with something...
Can I help run some cable?
As most of you will recall, I hate running cable. Least favorite task
by far. But, Admin#2 is a nice guy, and it's day 2, so I put on my
positive face and we got to work. First time I've run cable under a
raised floor. Had flashbacks to 'Aliens' when I had to stick my head
under the floor to hand off cable. Neither of us were having fun, so
we snarked about it, something I couldn't do with exboss #1 at the Pit.
I did have a few ouchies, once was I was further under the floor than I
thought, and I felt stuck and claustrophobia said hi. I also leaned
wrong on my rib cage, and one of my ribs shifted. Owowow. Not a break,
not even a bruise, just...shift = ow. Oh well, we got them done. And while
it wasn't what I wanted to do, it was good to be helpful, and to have
tricks up my sleeve that made things easier. Oh yeah, and duct tape is
great to block where cable was hanging up. I have mad improv skills.
I left closer to 5, was chatting with coworkers. Got a little turned
around trying to get to the road home, tried to find a new route. Oh
well, I'm home now. Package waiting at the apartment office, and a note
from some of my favorite Cthulhu folks. Going to watch some brain candy
tv, eat some dinner and probably go to bookland early.
Weekend plans are to pretty much be a bum around Château Innsmouth. I
need to probably do a major store run...I keep wanting to do it after
work, but again I'm drained (and sore). Not that I'm _needing_ anything
emergency wise, I'm just running low on stuff. Maybe tomorrow or
Friday, or this weekend. We'll see. Ok, going to call this a post.
Catch you all later.
