Random Monday thoughts

I tried my best to feel good about my job today. And I do. I feel good about the things I'm doing. But I am still easily rocked by the rudeness of some people. What has happened to asking nicely? Since when did it become okay to order people around or to yell at someone for something that isn't their fault? Sigh.

Morale is not too good around me either. There's nothing definite to point my finger to, no particular event or person, simply a piling up of little injustices: people being rude, no raises, no rewards for good work, no career path, no sense of direction, the blurring of job responsibilities, the "do more with less" mentality.

I finished The Amateur Marriage. What a great book! It really made me appreciate my own marriage. In my head, I had composed a really sappy post about what a great husband Mr. Geeky is. But I will spare you all of that and just say that I consider myself very lucky to have found such a compatible partner.

I'm now working my way through Cluetrain Manifesto. I'm liking it so far. What a swith from Amateur Marriage though. I think I'm going to have to order some more books. :)
