Training: a photo essay

We have a new financial system at work. It is large and complex. I don't speak Accountant, so I've been to lots of training recently.

It hurts my head. Dammit, Jim, I'm a musician!

I'm suffering some frustration and self-medicating with chocolate. The result:

The tech support is almost as confusing to me as the system itself.

My mood at the office today:

On the upside, there's a real sense of accomplishment when I do something correctly for the first time...

...and I'm grateful for a job that pays my mortgage, for Linus & Lucy's sake! :-)

If you've never seen the websites that birthed these little bits of brilliance, I heartily recommend icanhascheezburger.com (cats) and ihasahotdog.com (dogs) when you need a giggle!

I adore those web sites.

Great photo essay. But I admit, I was so out of it that when I saw the first photo, I thought, "Wait a minute. That's not choralgirl, is it?"

Then I went, DUH.

P.S. The writing is coming along. Praise be.

OOPs--that comment was made using my husband's new blog. So I'm back again on mine. . . .

These are great pictures!

Hope things get better.
