Peach Bread Pudding

I suppose this peach bread pudding isn’t going to eat itself at 11 o’clock at night.

Cats debating the cold

tcr! · Dec 27, 2017 at 8:22 pm

Mirah debating if she wants to go all the way outside Pearl debating if she wants to go all the way outside

Mirah’s debating if she wants to go all the way outside or not and then a few minutes later Pearl has the same debate. With it being -2°F and falling neither will commit.

Please note: This is their basement window and I haven’t shut the window completely on their tails. I just shut it far enough to remind them they can’t be half in and half out. They like to be half in and half out, though. Because cats.

In the summer I leave their window open all the time but since my basement desk is right by the window it’s too cold for all that horseshit now.

I usually come into the work office between 8-8:15 am. Most of the other worker-bees come in around 9 am. Fearless Leader usually comes in between 9:30-10 am. No bones on my part, it’s his company.

And then he’ll come out of his office around 10:15 am. And start talking. To everyone and anyone. We all typically have our headphones on and are at least an hour into the work day.

Since he’s been doing this regularly for the last year and it’s annoying, I give him only the slightest bit of my attention. I’ll only take out one of my earbuds and kinda/sorta listened for questions directed at me.

I’m not doing rocket surgery here but building websites does take most of my brain power and it’s not something I can do with only one eye and one ear.

Earlier today I was digging through code to see what a website is capable of to prepare a proposal for a client. I didn’t build the site and it does a million different things so I’m heads deep into a 8K line file…and then Fearless Leader comes out and asked me if I got “everything I wanted for Christmas.” Like I was 9. Or that we had just met for coffee.

If Fearless Leader wanted to have a daily “regroup” meeting at 10:15 am, I would totally work it into my morning schedule and give him my full attention. But he comes out of his office and wants to gab about personal stuff and work stuff whenever it’s good for his schedule. It’s a huge disruption for everyone when he starts an impromptu work meeting 15 minutes after he comes in.

It’s like when someone’s reading a book and another person comes over and just starts talking to them without first asking if they have a minute or something. Okay, I do similar things, too. But not at the start of every work day. And only when I have something I feel important to say.

After Fearless Leader asked about my Christmas, I shifted my eyes to him, smiled as politely as I could, and said “yep.” Then I shifted my eyes back to my monitor and kept working.
