~ Yesterday I saw an important thing. An empty SUV was idling in the Save-On parking lot so that the AC could be left on while the driver went grocery shopping. It was the first time I’d ever been tempted to “key” a car in a parking lot. Maybe leave a note on the windshield that read “People like you are the reason God doesn’t talk to us anymore.”
~ I heard through the grapevine that also singing at the Mug tomorrow night is the duo of Susan Young and Mary Lee. Susan is buying my lamps and bookcase.
~ Today my replacement at work, Alice, is shadowing me. I keep saying things like, “Well, that’s how we do it until everything goes to hell. Then we improvise…” and “They won’t tell you what they want, just to change it. So then add more starbursts. They love starbursts…” and “Just get things done fast, aesthetics is secondary to deadlines. But try to be creative so that your head doesn’t explode from doing the same thing over and over…” and “Linda doesn’t come in until 9:30 or 10:00 so mornings are the time you check your email and take it easy before she throws some random job at you she’s dreamed up in her SUV on the way to work that should take you a day but you only have an hour to do.”
