When I was sleeping this morning, ignoring the alarm clock, I awoke with a start. The scratching on the roof could only mean one thing. The monkeys are back. Sure, they have clever disguises, feathers & beaks, but they are monkeys. Monkeys who chirp and fly. Insidious monkeys, and only I know they are there...

I have coffee.

It's a good thing, because i am working on an icky project the next coupla days. We have a big, corporate client that brings in big cash. In one of their divisions, one of their product managers has moved on to bigger things, and there is a new person in charge. They want to know what video is in our library pertaining to their product. The only problem is, the tape all have the same/similar titles, so what I need to do is go through all 30-40 tapes, and generally log them on paper by content.

There are about 3 or 4 different QVC segments (Cable shop-at-home if I even need to explain that) about this product, and they all look about the same. I have to remember them all somewhat distinctly, so I can say which spot is duplicated on which tape when. Honestly, it is starting to look like they could weed out half these tapes and still have all the material. I hope they have sense enough to do that when I finish this.

Well, a busy morning logging footage (Same as BC#125468, same as BC#798421...) Damn inbred (Client name deleted) projects!!!

Now a quiet afternoon. My supervisor has given me her spare toaster. Toast for everyone tomorrow morning!!!

Tonight, scrubbing, sanding, and hopefully start of base coat! Thrilling, life in a (relatively) newly-purchased house!

BTW, if there are any must-fixes in the new place, even cosmetic must-fixes, do them promptly instead of putting them off, mateo, it'll just run you down morally. (as in morale)

Going home soon, just taking advantage of the ultrafast connection to surf & watch Ana's streaming all at the same time. Have any of you avowedly-former anarchy people lurked over to the streaming cam yet? It's fun, but I can understand bad blood, if you have any...
