I say the in progress because the day is not over and I may need to update.

1) Asked a question at the Policy Meeting that Never Ends that... actually yielded a simple answer and solution. Seriously. At a policy meeting. That kind of thing happens once in a blue moon.

2) When the really confusing Policy guy finally showed up at 4, my branch chief stood up and announced "Meeting's over!" before he could say a word. My branch chief is awesome.

3) I GOT OUT OF THAT MEETING ROOM AND NO ONE DIED.

4) ETA - When the other programmer in the room said, "I've got a theory," I automatically blurted, "It could be bunnies!" ...and two other people in the room got the reference.

1) Discovering that the afternoon meeting I absolutely had to stick around for was postponed until tomorrow. So instead of trying to flex out and nap in the health center for an hour to try to get my sleep-deprived self up to snuff for the meeting, I was able to go home sick and sleep for three hours straight in my own bed. (So I guess my self-diagnosis of sleep deprivation was dead-on. Thanks for waking me up, Mom!)

2) Mom gave me the obvious solution to wanting protein for breakfast but not having the time to actually cook an egg: hard-boiled eggs. Which apparently I still know how to do properly. XD

Hey, I slept half the day away, there's not much to cover.

Yes, I had to go back and check. Shush. (Day 5 had to be friends-locked for personal reasons.)

1) Ran my first meeting as a subteam lead ever. It was not a train wreck and I sounded like I knew what I was doing. Woot!

2) Teriyaki chicken lettuce wraps. Mmm.

3) [livejournal.com profile] jennies and [livejournal.com profile] indigoangelcat spent the night and provided nonstop entertainment. (To anyone on gchat last night, yeah, that's where I disappeared to.)

IN MY DEFENSE I DIDN'T GET HOME TIl 11:30 LAST NIGHT.

THE HAPPINESS MEME
Rules: For eight days you have to post something that made you happy that day. Tag eight people to do the same.


1) Getting to hang out with the SisterHood and seeing The Tale of Despereaux. Really, that sums up most of the day. We gathered in Frederick, saw a movie, went out to dinner together, then played board games til it was 10:30 and I was half-dead and it was time to go home. which is why I woke up at 2 pm oops thank god I have off tomorrow

2) Production day for the app release was totally uneventful. Nothing went boom. And I had pancakes afterwards with the team leads.

TAGGING: [livejournal.com profile] wonderseal, [livejournal.com profile] indigoangelcat, [livejournal.com profile] jennies, [livejournal.com profile] vaudevillainy, [livejournal.com profile] anatari, [livejournal.com profile] marielogan, [livejournal.com profile] kevenn, [livejournal.com profile] bktheirregular

Totally unrelated, can anyone point me to a good source of custom mood themes? I like the FB theme but I think it's time for a change. if there's a Pixar moodtheme out there I am ALL OVER THAT ONE.

To reiterate, here's the meme:

I'll tag people tomorrow if I'm around long enough to post! but here's what I've got:

1) It's Friday.

2) The blocking that drove me nuts at work yesterday morning was temporary and UMBC is no longer treated like a porn site. XD

3) Had a useful meeting this morning in which I found out important stuff about the project I'm working on.

4) Was able to work out for an hour at lunch and wow did it feel good.

5) I have tea. :)

Meme!

Snagged from [livejournal.com profile] irenak:


Election day meme:
1. Stop talking about politics for a moment or two.
2. Post a reasonably-sized picture in your LJ, NOT under a cut tag, of something pleasant, such as an adorable kitten, or a fluffy white cloud, or a bottle of booze. Something that has NOTHING TO DO WITH POLITICS.
3. Include these instructions, and share the love.

Pixar is love.

From [livejournal.com profile] bktheirregular:

When you see this, post another Buffy quote in your LJ. Let's see how long this can go on.

"Don't taunt the fear demon!"
"Why? Can he hurt me?"
"No, it's just... tacky."
