Amusing Myself

I'm working on the list of books to send to a conference at work, which is a bit tedious but the kind of work I like: nitpicky, looking over a big spreadsheet and making changes, doing something big and useful and concrete.

And, of course, I'm finding titles that shouldn't be there, titles that are missing, and other errors -- that's the point of the exercise.

Why, just now, I saw that one book is on the list but has no copies listed, so it won't be sent until I specify a quantity.

That book, amusingly, is Accounting for Managers -- because we all know... there is no accounting for managers!

(And even after seven years I'm still not tired of that joke.)

Hope your current working days are at least this pleasant.
