Space and Dimensions

The day started out weirdly enough. We were getting school cancellations and workplaces asking people not to come in before a certain time (due to the two inches of snow we got). Got to love Maryland. So, since the place I work as a contractor had specifically said, Do NOT come to work before 9:00am (presumably so they could plow the powder-dry snow off the parking lots), I arrived at work at 9:10 am. Took a little longer, but there was quite the traffic jam as everyone who normally arrives between 5:30 and 9 were all showing up at the same time.

As soon as I walk in, my partner tells me our supervisor called all upset that I hadn't shown up for work yet and that the 9:00am report wasn't ready to be delivered. Tom explained to her that "we were told not to show up until 9" and her reply was "But we're all at work here."

(Note: Here is an off-site place, not the client site.)

She was quite upset and went to her boss to discuss it with him. A half-hour later she calls back and says that her supervisor said it was O.K., since the client site was closed and to get the report done as soon as we could. (Course, we had it done by then.)

Where's Miss Snark's clue gun when you REALLY need it.

As you can imagine the rest of the day was about as humorous as the initial events. Made it to my Astronomy class tonight and my instructor, bless his heart, is obviously a scientist. He's got a lot of good information, but he's just a bit scattershot in his lectures. I'm following him and some of the others are, but several people in the class have a poleaxed look every time we take a break. I can't say I blame them. I am so glad I've always had an interest in astronomy because the stuff I've learned outside of class is keeping me straight in class.

I think the first test is going to be brutal for the class average.

Got some more work done on the Doctor Who story tonight. Added another 1125 words, and while I'm dreadfully behind for the year, I'm at least making my 1000+ words a night the nights I do write. With any luck, I'll catch up by the end of the month, Farpoint not withstanding. We've just introduced the villain's muscle in the story and we're moving toward the first encounter with the main antagonist in the piece and the main protagonist. I think what I have planned for this will be enjoyable, but then I always think that. *grin*

All right. Wrap this up and off to bed we go.
