    I think my soda drinking has finally caught up to me. Pretty sure I'm dealing with gout right now. The area around my big toe's joint has been in some pretty extreme pain. I can't bend my foot up.

    I really need to get a job so I can have insurance and find out for sure.

    Craigslist has some pretty promising job openings so I'm starting to feel kind of hopeful again with this job search.

    I was told that I might be over qualified for that job I interviewed for and they were considering going with a junior person instead. Rats to being such a badass! I really want to work at a startup and get in on some of that equity. I did some research yesterday into Boston startups and the ones on the list were primarily software and not looking for mechanical engineers, which is crazy. Everyone should have a mechanical engineer on staff, just in case!

    I went to go take a poop here at work, and somebody was in the second stall. I realize they are also pooping, so I don't mind, as we'll both be smelly.
    Although the other pooper was one of those types that, I guess, hates bathroom smells. She filled the room with a harsh peppermint smell. My eyes started watering, but I wasn't quite done when she left the room with the horrid scent of mint oil.
    Now my eyes are all red and the smell is lingering in my nose. I'd rather just deal with normal smells. Ugh

    If that's all there is my friends, then let's keep dancing

    I had this problem and thought it was gout and it turned out to be walking in shoes without sufficient arch support. So it might be worth investing in some insoles to see if that solves the problem.

    My younger coworkers are openly talking about recruiters contacting them and interviewing at other places and stuff. They are like maybe 5 years out of school and this some of their first real job, so I guess that they don't know that you shouldn't do that out in the open at your current job.

    I mean I've done phone interviews in my office at a job before and didn't hide it from anyone, but that was after I had been told I was being laid off in a few weeks so I didn't care and everyone understood.

    That I think is worse. Especially when your employer tries to codify it in the employee handbook (the HR person I was speaking with at the time wondered what that look on my face was, but I blamed it on something else).

    All salaries should work like government salaries - everyone should be able to know what everyone else gets paid at any time.

    Secret salaries only benefit the person at the top.

    That was my wife's favorite part of managing a bank. Customer gets mad and threatens a teller? Time to call corporate security and close out all the accounts. But not to worry, all the funds will be sent via registered mail as a cashier's check in the next 5 business days.

    I'd say all your fellow employees knowing you're interviewing around is a bad idea, regardless of whether it should be culturally fine or whatever. If your boss finds out, they're going to start making preparations to replace you, which is a real pisser if you then don't get the new job.

    I need to brag on myself for a minute

    yesterday I got a big print job, which I am well used to doing at this point. This one was annoying for a number of reasons:

    1) It was entirely .msg files, which I found Acrobat doesn't batch print (or doesn't batch print well anyway).
    2) These msg files had attachments which I also needed to print.
    3) They wanted emails in chronological order, and the msg files were not organized in this way, so I had to manually rename each email according to the date sent.
    4) 3 copies.
    5) The printer's default settings tended to hole punch through the text of some of the email.

    But I got it done! I renamed every email to the date, including even the timestamp if I had more than one email with the same date.

    For the printer issue I fooled around with the settings so that it shoved the gutter of the email like .2 inches over to the side, and also reduced the size of the print so that it didn't cut off anything.

    I did have to manually select and print EVERY email as well as the attachments. That was a pain.

    But I made a master document and then made the two copies of that, and delivered it to the paralegal who requested it.

    Anyway, I just feel good about getting that done. Also I'm glad they didn't want tabs for each individual email. That would have driven me nuts.
