Breaking Bad or, How I learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Project

It's always a good thing to start a new job strong.
Come in.
Make a Difference right off the bat.
Prove thine worth.

It's a whole other thing to come in doing just that and then suddenly having The Most Important IT Project In The History Of The Company dropped into your lap with the expectation that you are up to speed on every single server and application running in the environment.

Thankfully, I am in the process of bending that project over and... well... doing something brutally sexual to it that may be illegal in many states and principalities. But, hey... that's how I roll.

In other news, there are mumbles and rumors that the Company wants me to give up my Sammie for a Bluhbuhry... I'm not sure how I feel about this as I have never been a big fan of those devices. I'd been somewhat excited about maybe, potentially, getting a Spirit (is that the new touchie feelie? Eh, you know what I mean), until I heard it described as having all of the downsides of an iPhone and none of the cool gadgetry. Of course, the person that told me this was in the process of drinking away the initial pain of an upcoming holiday in a Bad Town, so he may not be the best of judges.

I stare out of my office window a lot. It's all ground floor and stuff, so I don't have the god-like view that I had in my last job with a window (wow... it's been... NINE YEARS since I had a desk next to a window) and that was on the ninth floor of a building that over-looked Southpark Mall in Charlotte, NC.
Nine Years.
God damn... that could make me all Tyler Durdennie if I let it.
