real world, day 4

The past couple of days at work has been reading over manuals and books about various aspects of the program. Which, at is best is mildly interesting, and it's worst is very very boring. But today I got a bit of "real work" testing out certain aspects of the program to make sure that they are working right. It's not really something I want to do all the time, but it beats reading manuals all day.

The commute to work takes between 15-20 minutes, depending on the weather... it seems like people in Tulsa are afraid of the rain so when it is wet out the drive drops from 65mph to 35mph. But it really isn't that bad overall.

There are a good amount of 'lunchy' restaurants around the office like Panera, Qdoba, and Quizno's so that gives me a good excuse to get out of the office for an hour each day during lunch time. Most of the people just bring lunch to work, but I prefer to hunt mine down... by ordering a sandwich.

We still are short a washer and dryer here at home which means that, at some point, we will run out of clean clothes, but for now our clothes reserves are still holding out. If we do get low on clothes I am thinking about just buying more clothes instead of going to the laundry mat. I need a reason to get some new stuff anyways.

I know, I'm not a Stat Rock Star yet, but you just wait.

You're gonna find that driving in the rain thing all over the drier climates. It's in-freaking-sane. Drives me up a wall.

Good luck on that clothes thing. You know - eventually, you're going to have to either go to the laundry mat, or purchase a washer and dryer. It's cheaper, and it cuts down on the space your dirty clothes will be taking up.

But feel free to experiment all you want. Let me know how that turns out . . .
