No longer a newbie

I feel settled in and comfortable at work, I have an idea of what they want and what every person considers their personal "nut". This is hilarious as I guy I used to work with at my old job, and currently work with at this job, just gave notice. He and I do the same job and always have and he was offered a job by the customer. In effect he will be in charge of the shit he used to ship in. I have a feeling my old company will rue the day they let him go and my new company just won't get it. He is younger than I am and still looking to be a valued employee of a good company. My current company views us as expensive and necessary evils, but we will never be valued employees, more like hired guns. Which is fine with me, I don't want to go to the company picnic and Christmas party. I also get insurance through my husband. My colleague wanted more and the customer offered him a job out of the blue. I say good for you and I will be entertained by all the reactions.

My boss believes that managing people is correcting emails. He likes to add additional information that he thinks enhances the content, I just think he is one of those people that must change everything. Whatever. He also takes 3 times longer to order lunch and eat it than anyone else in the world. Hey, as long as I know the rules I am fine with this.

Monday I need to take a grocery sack full of cookies into the materials launch area as those guys are getting real tired of seeing my face asking them for favors. Favors such as "we have sent you in a new iteration of fucked up parts and can we swap them out again"? This of course requires 3 guys and a Hi-lo. WTF.

Got a pedicure this morning, picked up my dress from the dressmaker, and unwrapped my underwear order. Bare Necessities is the best, they carry the best brands at a discount and I have used them for years. Besides the stuff I needed I found a Calvin Klein nightshirt on sale. Now all I need is a bag for the wedding.
