How does that old saying go.. “Don’t make yourself indispensable at work, because indispensable people can’t be replaced so they can be promoted…” something like that?

The ugh is because the icky icky task that a pair of engineers have been griping over for the last week has now been dropped into my lap. How fondly I recall the long Tuesday drive to cheese, hearing poor stressed Kramer lament how tedious his work days have been since management decided to implement a new product of ours on every single office and agent site as a free upgrade…. thus for our 20,000 plus customers, he was having to go thru 3 pages of code for each website and add a nice little widget that adds a link to the new product feature. “It’s all I do, all day long..” he told me. I expressed my sympathy, but was silently thankful that my humble permissions didn’t allow me to join that particular tedium club… well, this morning, Voila! I’m in the club. Not only am I IN the club, I’m the new president. After a brief tutorial with Kramer, he and Jason dropped all of their current reworks relating to this project on my desk… w00t w00t w00t. I’m about to have NO spare time at work… which is perhaps how they like it, but for me… LJ will always be a priority. =)

Okay.. so last night The Girlz ™ went over to casa de Skittums for some unpacking help and brainstorming on decorating ideas. We put a big dent in getting her settled in (I hope) and also mused on paint schemes for walls and furniture, where she needs shelves, what needs slipcovered.. yatta yatta.. girly stuff. Well, on the drive home, Magoo and I continued our musings, and I guess despite my staying up to watch Three Musketeers, in its entirety, then the last hour of The Professional, then a Daria and a half (before I was falling asleep in the “crack” of the futon.. I still managed to keep the decorating thoughts bouncing around in my head long enough to dream all about it.

So, anyway.. in my dream, we painted her place in four main colors, two foot wide stripes of them thru the living area, bathroom and down the hall, then the bedroom, kitchen, and sun room picked up one stripe color for the whole room… Then on the little slanted half wall between living and bedroom, I dreamt we got out the projector and doodled a cityscape over the stripes, lit with bright yellow highlights. It was all very cool in my dream, and well, in my quickest photoshop rendition, here’s a visual:

Anyway… it was all just a dream, but it obviously indicates how psyched I am about the notion of decorating her place. There’s so much we could do over there, and hopefully she’ll end up with the hip downtown pad for us all to crash in =)

Oh well.. back to the tedium.

    is it just me, or does that tall “building” on the right resemble a b.o.b.? you know what that means, right?

    you’re dreaming about a meathammer.

    Oh! WHEW! I thought i’d developed some sort of unnatural attraction to manual labor and secretly wanted to be a painter, but thanks to your observation, I’m relieved to know I was actually just dreaming about sex. That’s lots more logical for me. =)

    Um… not getting enough of the ‘meathammer’ at home that you’re now visuallizing b.o.b.s everywhere?
