Whale fluke

"This is the list that never ends, it just goes on and on, my friends..."

My big accomplishment at work today: Adding pages’ worth of doctors’ names to a database. And then checking some minutes later to make sure the list had actually updated with the new names. It had to get done, and at least it got done on a weekend day, quite quiet in the office, when I could play my music on speakers instead of headphones.

Not a bad day, and I got stuff done. (I was going to write “I felt productive,” but that sounds like code for “I didn’t get enough done, but I feel like I did!”)

I’ll be in a nine-person Thanksgiving Thursday; we Walshes are not hosting epic, Viking mead hall-level crowds this year. Should be nice and civilized. And I can take Friday off, too.
