Sharif fears glitter lips

I didn't realize that I was in a grouchy mood until I found myself snapping at someone for mocking me- about not having set up online account management with my bank. A stupid reason for mocking, sure, but also a stupid thing to be sensitive about. Why should I care that someone doesn't understand that I don't mind going to the bank? It's close to the office, it means I get to go somewhere at lunchtime, and it's the only place where I can withdraw cash from an ATM without a fee, so I'd be going there anyway.

Anyway, apparently I'm grumpy. But I'll get some alonetime with a book when I grab lunch after the bank, and tonight I'll hide out in my parents' empty house for awhile. I'll probably take a walk to the store to buy some dinner, then steal some quality time with the bathtub again. All of that should help.

My weekend was relaxed and featured two ilyAIMY shows, a tiny sleepy puppy of cuteness, a kitty of furriness, lots of sleep, some video gaming, a sand fairy voiced by Eddie Izzard, and listening to a 3arabi/psychephage practice session. Not really in that order.

brief Office woe

We refer to our branch offices by their location. So, for example, we have the Springfield office, the Fells Point office, the Georgetown office. There are four Ocean City branches, and since they are all on Coastal Highway, we refer to them by their cross streets. We end up writing them this way:

Ocean City/ 52nd St
Ocean City/ 57th St
Ocean City/ 104th St
Ocean City/ 120th St

Which would be fine, except Excel hates that. Every time I make a spreadsheet and try to alphabetize by office, Excel insists on ordering them this way:

Ocean City/ 104th St
Ocean City/ 120th St
Ocean City/ 52nd St
Ocean City/ 57th St

This bugs the hell out of me.


Just felt like bringing that up. You can go back to something more interesting now.
