I got my compensation adjustment notification today, and am pleased to report that due to my above-average compensation level (due to above-average performance ratings), I will not receive increased compensation until I drop below the mean compensation. I guess it’s time to perform below-average

I’m not sure when I was trained to completely ignore README files, but I need to break this habit

I was grumpy about the prospective snow today, but it’s so pretty that I’m happy it’s here

I took my pretty road bike out for a ride today. So light and free! Getting back on the commuter ride with studded tires tomorrow is going to be tough

two of my seeds have sprouted! Spring is here!

During earth hour tonight, I read a book about the earth (the eruption of Mount St. Helens)

My mom tried to take a photo of us with the three pets, and this one is a pretty accurate reflection of Tungsten’s interest in cooperating

Took like 10 minutes. Thanks, weird sears store with a state office inside it.

Yesterday I brought some cheese to do a training walk with Hexie (anti-barking), and gave her one when we walked past the yard full of barking dogs. She apparently held it in her mouth until safe, because half a block later she dropped it on the ground and sniffed it before eating it

Today my boyfriend and I are getting our driver’s licenses renewed together.

My house appears to be missing some soffits and I don’t know what to do about it, but I super don’t want raccoons living in my walls

This morning I waited for several minutes for a stoplight to change so I could cross west 7th, but there was no car to trigger the change. So the cross street light just kept cycling through green/ped-go, green/ped-countdown, green/ped-go. This is on a bicycle boulevard.

lol now it’s snowing and I refused to dress appropriately so my bike ride was rather chilly

I bought a gardening vest today, is it spring yet?

“Please leave me alone, I guarantee it’s not important”

Vacation email reply on = three day weekend!

Today I completed the three important tasks that I had planned to do on Monday, so I feel like I’m ready to go home

these ice sheets on the bike paths are becoming kind of fun in the morning: cracks and bubbles!

Today I got to have two really fulfilling conversations at work, and I hope I don’t have to talk to anyone again for several weeks.

I really want to take my studded tires off my bike.
