Back at work again, and it's like I never left!
Except I no longer have a desktop machine. It was taken up by Fatima when she started working here.
And there's about 10 less people working for the company.
And rumor has it that the president has been a great mood for a very long time, making my coworkers think that there are probably body snatchers on the loose. Be careful out there, people.
And they're redoing my building structure. There's construction all over the place.
But other than that, it was get into work, power up my laptop, then spend the next hours chatting with coworkers and catching up. Uh, and working, too.
Today, I had to take the Metra for the very first time. My super secret hideout is a ways away, so I have to rely on suburban transportation to get around. It was pretty scary. I'm used to scanning my card before getting on the train, when I take the CTA. On the Metra, you buy a ticket, get on the train, and a conductor comes around and punches your ticket. Weird! The Metra is like riding in first class compared to riding the CTA. The seats were all cushy, the train ride was quiet, people powered up their laptops. I wouldn't be caught DEAD even letting my laptop peep out of its case when riding the CTA!
Today I had lunch with Fatima. I took her to Fox and Obel, which she hasn't gone to before. I suggested that we eat our lunch next to the Equitable building, at an eating area next to the river. Then it rained on us as we were eating. Luckily we were under an umbrella, but I never thought to check the skies to see if it was ok to eat outside. I must get out of that Cali mentality!!!Posted by Yano at June 24, 2004 02:48 PM
