Stalking the savage cube-lands
What calls in the distance? Is it plight for the overworked white collar? Screams! Turmoil! NO OVERTIME PAY??
No! I shall save you, I can give you your freedom - freedom to sleep and eat and take bathroom breaks uncramped by pressing deadlines!
Fear not the stacked pile of logs. I can take them! Fear not the back-to-back meeting, I have not been trapped by the encroaching Corporate Zeitgeist. No. For I am Mr. GO-TO-GUY (bah-nan-na-naaaah)!

Let me save your from your job!
Mr. GO-TO-GUY Strikes again! (bah-nan-na-naaaah)!



I can see where Scott Adams can get his material. I'm liking this concept way too much.

Does it look poorly upon me that I keep asking for more logs? I mean, it shows that I want to help, but could be seen as me not getting enough work to begin with. I'm certainly hoping that it's more of a "step up to the plate" look rather than "you're obviously not pulling your weight to begin with." Corporate logic seems like it could justify that.

What would you corporate types say? been in this sort of a situation.

Do you have the choice of what to pick up till now? It seems like you keep grabbing things and getting smacked down. So, no. I'd say it looks like stepping up.

Every week in our meetings we hand out logs. We all grab what we want. THe problem is that some of us speak up for many, many more than others. So, I've had a chances if I'm quick enough. Though as we get closer to the deadline, we all go into the unassigned list and grab them as we go. People don't get to complain - at least they shouldn't.

This particular entry came from a few logs I was giong to grab this afternoon but got snathched up by my team lead - probably because she got impatient. I asked if I could have them. Then i took them.

I lied. No Anna today. She's going to come up tomorrow if she can. For no good reason, I didn't get the email she sent me.

Kinda. I forgot my book. Treadmill time is much less fun without books.

hmm... as there's nothing else going on out there that I can do (yay being broke for the week), that's a long way to go... can you live without it?

Graduation this weekend. We'll be in Beloit Sunday at least. Maybe Saturday if there are compelling reasons/places to stay.

As far as overnight accommodations go, I have a couch that folds out into a double.

My plan is to attend the phi beta kappa initiation and Cancer's family thing after that, but I expect we'll be home before 10. I put in a request to have a wild drinking party with Conan since he and Carolyn will be in town. So it might be worth coming up later on Saturday and staying the night depending on schedules and what other people are doing. Also, I'm not moving out Sunday, so no worries about being in the way.
