Busy Day

Work: Today, I finally completed my travel voucher for the trip I took at the beginning of this montyh. Since the state reimburses employees who must use drivers for the driver's hours, you have to jump through several hoops any time you use a driver. Plus, they've gotten very strict about the ten-day time limit. If you received a cash advance and and did not complete your travel voucher by the tenth day after the trip, you are no longer eligible to receive cash advances.

And on top of all this, the macro I was using on the Excel for to produce the voucher kept inserting numbers and phrases from other cells seemingly at random in places where they didn't belong--which meant that I had to keep going back and deleting the unwanted text before I could turn the sheet in. Ack!

I bow down and worship my co-worker Cindy, who taught me how to do the thing.

Weekend: Mark and I are ambivalent about seeing a movie tomorrow night; there's a strong possibility that we'll just go out to eat and then come home for the evening. I rather like that. Sometimes, I just like to come home and don't like to be running around until 9pm or later, after having been up since 5:45am.

I hope we'll get to go gaming on Saturday. Our DM was sick with sinus ickies last week, and when she gets hit with those, she goes down hard.

Passing Thought: On South Park, I find the character of Mr. Slave far more interesting and intelligent than his lover, Mr. Garrison.

Meme: Why did you friend me? (From the journal of athanasios)

Not much else happening. I'm going off to write.

The Film Meme

1) Total number of films I own on DVD/Video: On video--Tons; we've been collecting them for the entire 14 years that we've been married. I personally own 15, I would guess--they being every Star Trek movie ever made and some Sherlock Holmes movie DVD's that I got as Christmas and birthday presents. I don't go out and shop for DVD's, because I would rather read books or do things online than watch something on TV.

2) The last film I bought: Rebel Without a Cause, I think, as a Christmas present for my mother a while back. She loves James Dean!

3) The last film I watched: The Kingdom of Heaven

4) Five films that I watch a lot or which mean a lot to me:

The Fugitive
What Dreams May Come

5)Which five people are you passing the baton on to?


(I tried to choose people who I haven't seen getting this meme before.)
