If the first thing you think of in the morning when you wake up is God, then you are a monk.

--Brother David Steindl-Rast

And if the first thing you think about is a banana, well I think you know what you are.

Work situation from yesterday seems to have resolved itself in a satisfactory way. My boss was more annoyed at the IT people than at me (because the thing I neglected to do last week was caused by computer problems), although I don't like that I had to implicate the IT folks.

This morning I had to make a list of all the times a certain database was malfunctioning in the past two weeks, and what I worked on when I wasn't working in the downed databse. I can't remember what I had for lunch yesterday much less my exact comings-and-goings for the past two weeks.

My personal journal was actually an aid. There were days I even made note that "Argh, the database is down again!" so I was able to use that in my memo.

It felt like I was on trial, or being audited. But it also taught me to keep scrupulous notes from now on about what I do.

Anyway, it's over, and I feel better for having gone through it.

My amazing dogwalker got a real job for the summer, so I have to find someone new. At least she gave me 2 weeks notice and didn't just up and quit like the last one.

I have a new work buddy. It's someone who used to rehearse in the same space as my old band. We exchanged records, and his is really good! Very rockin' and tuneful.
