6:50 Bus comes and I am off to work.
7:45 Longer than normal trip to work. Drive distance ~15 miles. Did you happen to know that traffic in Atlanta sucks ass?
8:00 I make a flash with November Announcements and publish it to our intranet and welcome kiosks.
8:15 IT meeting. We discuss our victory at the Halloween contest yesterday. The sketch provides us with all the chances to make fun of the rest of the company to their face. More office politics BS ensues as it is announced another department will share 1st place with us. We're planning revenge.
9:00 I do all my SMS crap for the 1st part of the day.
9:30 I get my 2nd cup of coffee and oatmeal.
10:30 Zoned out and listened to the iPod, read some stuff and posted here. Copier dude is here to install big time new copier/printer/fax/coffee maker. I draw the short straw and am designated to hold his hand.
11:45 Set up the new print queues, send shortcuts to the new printers to the proper users. Explain to my boss how everything was done before he asks about it.
12:00 Lunch and a Haircut.
2:00 Run Afternoon SMS reports, Play a game of Pinball.

4:45 I'm gone after a rousing game of ping-pong. Job is boring sometimes but the office rocks!
