Having fun:

     The amusement of a confused coworker leaving a frantic voicemail on my work phone at 7:30 pm Sunday night...because she thought it was 7:30 AM Monday morning and she was late for work! (Naps are dangerous ;)

     The HUGE beetle the size of a baby turtle another (bug-petrified) coworker of mine saw on her lunch break...so I went out with her on afternoon break and it was still there--but just 1.5 inches long (@ 4cm). Big, but hardly King Kong!

     So Nancy's machine jammed again (as it did last Thursday) and the screwdriver I brought to work against that event got used again...but this time Corey couldn't unjam it. Hence, we're both bringing needle-nosed pliers to work today (in case one of us forgets). I was teasing that we might as well bring our entire toolkit next--then we agreed what we should bring next is a hammer. It will at least be the most emotionally rewarding thing to wield against that machine! =D

     And a little bit of progress on the portion of the essay that had me stuck last Sunday. Chugging away...

I have to admit being somewhat amused by these stories too. I'm glad to hear they put a smile on your face at least.

*hugs* I hope it's all going well.

I'm glad the needle-nosed pliers worked, even if it might have been fun to wield the hammer. ;)

*hugs back* Just trying to hang on until this heat wave's over.

Thanks for sharing the stories about coworker. I definitely identified with the nap one.
Nancy's machine has turn out to ba a REAL PAIN. Hope it starts behaving itself.

Hope you are surviving the heat.

Better being confused by a nap than when they actually oversleep!

Me too with that machine! I'm glad the plier worked, and that we can unstick it ourselves, but it will be nice to have it fixed, whenever that happens.

I'm looking forward to the weekend--it's supposed to go back to normal highs then. Today's forecast doesn't sound too bad either.
