So, I get to spend about a half-hour working with the help desk to get my phone number changed in the directory. Never mind the fact I've worked here going on six years and he's been here about three. Because he initiated the trouble-ticket, I'm the one who has to get it resolved. Grrr.
Oh well, such is the joy of corporate America. Dilbert, would you please get out of my cubicle!
Luckily, I was able to channel some of my frustration into my writing this evening. I knocked out 2283 words tonight and really felt like I was getting on a roll. If I didn't have work tomorrow, I'd probably keep going, but I don't think they'd appreciate me drooling in my keyboard more than normal.
Talked to Tee Morris tonight. Had to congratulate him on his book Billibub Baddings and the Case of the Singing Sword finishing as an Ippie Finalist in the SF/F category. It's a great read. Tee described it last year at Balticon as "Imagine the Lord of the Rings written by Mickey Spillane".

Web Site of note: Pod-dy Mouth. An absolutely devastating review of Publish America's attempt at self-promotion. The sad part is, this book is only meant to be used as bait to lure the PA authors into ordering more of their own books or to bolster the morale of the few "true believers" at PA. For more on Publish America, I highly recommend reading The Never-ending Publish America Thread among other sites you can find with a good Google search.
