Microsoft is evil.
I know this because, every time I approach MS Access thinking hey, I'll be bored, but surely I'll at least get that feeling of accomplishment this time, it bores me into that limp-eyed stare. You know the one. The one you wear around the office until you finally step outside or trip and fall into the collective toilet. That one.
This is a bad day for this. Maybe a bad week for this. There is nothing quite so likely to suck out your soul as arriving back from a vacation in which you read a load of progressive propaganda to spend some quality time with Access.
I'm regretting Michael Moore's book like a warm shrimp salad sandwich. Really. Nothing like being told by an alarmist, funny-in-a-way-he-thinks-is-revolutionary [and also in a way that sometimes I think is sexist] guy telling you you've sold out and hate your job to put you in a mood for an occasionally dull work day. This should in no way be taken to mean that I dislike either Michael Moore or my job, by the way.

No. It's all Microsoft's fault.
your wicked thoughts
Funny you should mention the slightly queasy uneasiness with which you're meeting the Michael Moore remnants... He was looking for a full-on, full-time designer a couple of years back for his web sites (approx. 60 hours per week) and when I contacted his staff, they informed me that they would only pay a salary of 35k a year. In Manhattan. So much for decent living wages and fair compensation. As an aside, I too have sensed a vague whiff of mysogyny when reading Mr. Moore's work.
