RE: Why was today a good day thread
I was out of work yesterday due to migraine. I was still in postdrome all of today as I worked. Couldn't even do a full shift. Still in it.

But I caught up and did all my work. Every single piece. And even got ahead.

BOOM! In yo faces, coworkers.

Out of professional curiosity, did having an ITIL qualification contribute anything to your supervisor decision?

The short answer is 'no'. The government organization I am contracted through requires all contractors (on my contract) to get ITIL certified - from the lowliest Service Desk sub-contractor, to the Program Manager. One thing I just realized is I will be required to get next level of ITIL at some point. Facepalm

RE: Why was today a good day thread
Can I express, in any adequate way, how much I love Bed, Bath and Beyond?

We received our meager tax refund last week, so I asked nicely for hubby to take me there, because we desperately were in need of sheets for our bed. I already "priced" them at Macy's and they would cost us around $300. Blink Our bed is difficult, it's a California King and has an extra deep mattress so regular sheets never fit properly. Dodgy

Begrudgenly, he took me today. I got two sets of sheets that will somewhat go with our current comforter, a new shower curtain for the boys bathroom, four bath towels, two hand towels, four washcloths, rings for the new shower curtain (just in case), 2 toothpaste/toothbrush holders, 2 soap dishes (all coordinate color-wise with the new shower curtain), 4 steak knives and a new vegetable peeler. All that for a little less than the one set of sheets would have cost me at Macy's.

I am a very happy girl tonight. Heart


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

Days alone are great, aren't they?

Lemme know if you need my help.

Not so much about the knowledge... more about exam technique.

I don't really know what you mean by that, but thanks Big Grin With the way our contract works, just moving into a new year (from contract re-up) and all, I could theoretically avoid it for up to two years, but more than likely I think I will take it summer/autumn of this year.

Who in their right mind would have/want a "California king" bed.
You have to "go looking for 'em" (as in someone/anyone...else, in the same bed). Blush .. Confused .. Angel .. Tongue
