decided I did NOT want to see a movie that was going to have me out until 10:45 and then home around 11:30 (if I was lucky). Not even a movie that had me home at 11. Nope. I have to be in at work not just at 9 sharp, but earlier, for tomorrow is the day I am presenting my "here's what a test plan ought to look like, folks" to the high yaller QA yokels at $howboat, as promised two weeks ago, only I've got to get in to work EARLY to make printouts and stuff, since (run on, yes, I know) I can only be there for thirty minutes thanks to the managerial training I'm getting that not just utterly duplicates what I did at Tripadelic, but duplicates the stuff I already knew how to do. Recognize? Coach? Reward employees? Thanks guys, figured it out on my own, appear to be great at it, but bless your hearts for wasting 16 hours out of the next six weeks to tell me how to do it all over again. You see, I'm not a new manager, I'm just new at your company.
My managerial, high irony quote of the day.
Developer: I don't know why we're so late getting the build, it's environmental issues.
Boss developer guy: What kind of environmental issues?
Me: I think it might be global warming.
BDG: Hmm, I was wondering why the code name for that project is Carbon ...
Anyway, we went to Chando's near St. Martin's and had pints in the opera room and got home nicely at 10 PM. My big question is now - do I make vegetarian chili or duck leg cassoulet for dinner tomorrow? As far as I know wechsler is the only person coming over.
Finally, I'm big on Japanese cinema, and the Wild Japan series at the NFT has really caught my eye. Really, who wouldn't be pulled in by promises of nunsploitation and existential gangsters? I've added Sword of Doom, Pale Flower, and Yakuza Graveyard to my schedule (neatly filling up every open Sunday this month but one); let me know if you want to come with us.
