Take the good with the bad

Good thing: Your child learns to walk
Bad thing: Now you have to chase a being that goes faster than crawling speed

Good thing: You've decided to start a healthy eating regime and exercise
Bad thing: McDonald's and those tasty fries your lazy ass can get through drive-thru

Good thing: Your company bought a nifty new server which is now located in the building where you work and not some remote location in Cheeseland and makes your computer downtime go "bye-bye".
Bad thing: To blog now may also mean to be dooced*.


Blogging at work may be stopped. Having the server in NoMansLand meant I could blog because no one there ever ran a user report. Not so for the corporate office! And my boss will probably do the report generating. That figures. But I'll still blog. Hell, it's 5AM and I'm blogging. But I don't think I'll be able to post in work anymore. Stupid rules about doing company work on company equipment. I'll remind certain execs of that the next time I see them place an order on-line for that all important golfclub set.

* - who hasn't heard of Dooce?

Yay - I'm first.

Fight the man Maidink - everyone at work uses the internet for personal reasons. I've talked to people about this big brother monitoring from work and most say that companies will only say anything if you are checking out "bad" sites, like porn or gambling online. Also if you do it too excessively they might say something - I wouldn't worry, only one person I know have has gotten fired for internet use, cause he was on porn sites for four hours!

Man, I could get Dooced badly but the work ppls who read me know I don't talk about work too much and are much too amused about my daily rants to rat me out.

Good: Finally getting the wife preggers.
Bad: Its a 2+ deal where you get to chase multiple infants about. They invariably head in polar opposite directions.

That's why I'm very careful about posting any work stories..
