New computer. I just hit some damn key and the whole thing I was writing was erased. Most annoying.

Short version: Dell Inspiron has a nice keyboard, shiny new case, easy setup. I was really nervous about it, but it turned out to be a piece of cake, even setting up the wireless connection to the internet (I had written the password for wireless on a piece of paper, thank goodness).

Slightly longer version: I hate Vista, it's slow and clunky and user unfriendly. But I have an update for Windows 7 already paid for, and will install it in a few months after some of the worst bugs have been worked out.

I have the day off from work today, because I have a cardiologist appointment in the morning and a dental appointment in the afternoon, and trying to rush back and forth and still go to work was unappealing, to say the least. I have lots of illness time saved up, so a day off was definitely a Good Idea.

I just lost the last two paragraphs. Again. I wonder what it is that I'm doing that causes erasure. Unlike Sue, I can't blame a cat. I must be leaning on a key or something. Or maybe something times out? Most annoying.

Anyway, as I was saying...I like my job and I don't understand why so many of my coworkers bitch about working where we do and why they spend so much time and energy thinking about and yearning for and planning their weekends, as though that's all they live for.

I'm not saying that I couldn't find other worthwhile things to do instead, but I find my work satisfying and I do feel I'm making a contribution to society. I'm not just earning a few bucks so I can drink and carouse on the weekends and pay my bills, as it seems so many of my coworkers do, at least by their own saying.

The work itself isn't usually onerous. There are occasions when I want to rip the telephone out by its cord, or dump acid on the computer, but those times are predictable and only a few weeks in duration. Most of the rest of the time the work flows fairly smoothly, and, after all these years, reasonably predictably.

Of course, I no longer work for the Boss from Hell as I did when I first started in this position. Having had that initiation, and survived it, everything else has seemed easier. I guess it's all in the perspective.

Enough for today. Off to see the cardiologist.
