Its been a long, relatively unpleasant week, but at least Friday arrives.
I’ve written more lines of code this week then I thought I would ever in my life, but theres no end to the work that needs to be done, and since I’m farther along in my task than anyone else working on the project, I can’t really test my work. Feh!
On the positive side, I’ve managed to finish Everything’s Eventual, a collection of short stories by Stephen King. I’m also on the last 50 pages of Stranger in a Strange Land, by Robert A. Heinlein. Both were worth all the time I spent on them too, despite the thick religious understones of the latter.
In my office, there is a skylight. On nice days, there is a bright, glorious square of light that wanders lazily across my desk to my left. It reassures me that there is still a world other than this office waiting for me come 5 o’clock. Today, looking up at the world through my small boxed skylight window, I see only grey. Grey like the entire office I work in has entered a particularly depressing old low-contrast movie. When I leave, I fear I may be the only thing left in existence with any color.
Yep, just another Friday.
