Work switched over from Microsoft to G Suite. it's been a trip, let me tell you. They released several paragraphs about how they believe G Suite is poised to become the industry leader for productivity software (never mind that none of the people with those beliefs are actually tech people - we're a bank, remember) and admitted in the last sentence G Suite is also cheaper.
As far as I can figure it's like 50% cheaper.
So yeah I can't totally fault them on doing what they did considering other circumstances but just quit with the BS, man.
I'm reading Prayer for Owen Meany. I wanted to read Ciderhouse Rules first, which I swearswearswearswear SWEAR I have a copy of, but can't find. And couldn't find at either of the two bookstores or two libraries I visited. And I didn't want to wait until whoever checked it out from the only library in my country who has it to return it to continue reading as a whole, so Owen Meany it is. So far, Owen Meany is a strange book. A bit more fantastical than most of the other Irvings I've read so far, it feels like.
I have to watch Vertigo this week, it's a friend-assignment. I'm looking forward to the time when I sit down and do it. I know I've watched pieces of it, but I don't think I've ever seen the whole thing in one go. Can't remember it, at least.
Halloween approaches! Tis the season.
I had another friend who called me combative for apologizing to her. We're not gonna be friends any more. This is the same person who told me a headshrinker was specifically a psychiatrist, a doctor who prescribes drugs, and definitely did not mean anything else such as a a counselor or a psychologist or a therapist. And when she did even though I knew she was right I didn't take a screenshot of the definition of this SLANG WORD, btw, so right off we know it has variable meanings, and send it to her because I was being an adult and having friends and not petty.
I couldn't sleep til 3 am ln after our disagreement and I just don't need to spend my time having pointless conversations that end in me trying my best to be patient and smooth over disagreements in the interest of friendship and getting called combative for it.
I hope I don't sound too negative. Life is still and again mostly pretty good and I continue to try and make it and myself better. I went on a date this past Friday -- we seem to have mutually decided we're not interested, but hey, I went on a date! That's trying. That's more than I have been. (The problem may be that I'm not really interested in dating at all. If that's the truth, it's not a problem, really -- just something I need to realize about myself and accept.)
