this week I learned:

even with the best of planning and time reserving, I can not always get everything done as quickly as I anticipate.

If I put a lot of thought into it and plan ahead, I can actually figure out how to do anything I want to do.

People will always like things ten times more than I think they will.

While some things aren't actually about *me*, not everyone is aware of that fact (I usually assume things *aren't* about me, so I am surprised when they *are*).

Not everyone knows how much they mean to me. I need to work on that more.

That I'm simultaneously smarter and not smarter than I give myself credit for.

That dressing up girly is hard and is about a lot more than just the clothes.

That being a manager means you get to tell people what to do but have no obligations to make sure they do it or to help them do it.

That lots of nerds are stubborn and won't ask for help.

That leaving work when you have a headache and are grumpy is a good idea. Much better than sitting around and continuing to grump.

I look good in green turtlenecks.

That MS SQL Server, Python and pymssql give me headache when I try to work with unicode.

That your boss usually has a bigger picture than you.

It's still the same week, yes? Good.

Cavalier the noun and cavalier the adjective have opposite meanings.

Also, flammable and inflammable mean the same thing. Dangerous!
Kburgunder on November 21st, 2006 07:05 pm (UTC)
Err? I thought inflammable meant not-flammable... what's the word for not-flammable?
Varnvarn_ix on November 21st, 2006 07:29 pm (UTC)
Apparently, that would be nonflammable, or indeed noninflammable.
