New big contract got a new big task order awarded today. I submitted my timecard today with 90 hours even for a 2-week period, but if I need to work later than 4pm tomorrow as I suspect I will, I will end up with even a bit more than 90 hours. Sheesh.
So to sum up, I've been too lazy to blog. Or exercise. Two things, at least one of which is probably more important than what I have been doing with my evenings, namely posting things on facebook and watching The Daily Show and The Colbert Report on comedycentral.com.
But it has been wonderful to see both those shows again. I especially loved the musical interlude on the 9/17 Daily Show, incorporating all the correspondents, and John himself doing beatbox for rap. Amazing. Colbert's Word of the Day for 9/17 was also wonderful.
Next week: leaving Monday at 6 to drive down to McLean, VA again for more training. Fun, and I'm excited to meet the woman I trained over the phone on my old contracts, and am also looking forward to trying out the whirlpool and sauna at the Ritz Carlton where I am staying, but also not thrilled about sleeping by myself for 3 more nights and driving down there for the 3rd time in 5 weeks. This should be the last time for the foreseeable future, at least. Oh, also not thrilled about spending 2 hours in the car with a woman I barely know, but this is probably the only time I'll ever be traveling with anyone, so I can deal. I just hope she lets me listen to NPR the whole way down, or I will be cranky.
OK time for bed. Good night.
