My New Shredder

Using my new Fellowes Paper Shredder, I am shredding everything in sight. Oh yeah! Being able to see the floor in my home office does feel good. Of course, I’m thinking of keeping the shredded paper in case I need to ship something. Damn! So much for trying not to be a packrat.

Working From Home: Week One

I woke up this morning with a hangover. Truth be told I only had 4 vodka tonics last night, but when you’re a lightweight like me and you’re drinking on an empty stomach, that’s enough to send me over the edge. In addition to the hangover, also felt sore. Why? Well I also danced for quite some time while hanging out with fellow coworkers at Dunphy’s Bar & Grill. We were actually there for yet another sendoff. Actually, things haven’t been so bad lately. The mass exodus has stopped and more importantly, I now get to work from home which […]

I know I’ll feel isolated […]

As I cradled the cell phone on the train trying not to be one of those obnoxious people I hate, I couldn’t help think about how nice it would be to have someone at home to listen to me and tell me that everything would be better. Unfortunately, that is not to be. I did have dinner with […]

High Speed Access Here I Come

Thanks to my job (more on that later), I now have high speed internet access at home. However, there is something to be set for dial-up. In appears that it kept the worm virus at bay for months. I say this because about 15 minutes after cable modem was installed, my system kept shutting down. Upon consultation, was told that my computer was infected with the worm virus; it lay dormant for months. Luckily I was able to still connect via dial-up and download the Microsoft patch which took care of the problem. Now need to order the latest antivirus […]
