    Another thread gave me an idea for dinner tonight: Homemade spag sauce and veggies. That's homemade as in start with raw tomato and such, with the family recipe. I'll see what happens if it goes into the pressure cooker prior to adding the meat. I think it'll work out, I'll just need to boil out the excess liquid after the fact.
    The "family recipe" for anything is our family is really funny, because it's not a sacred recipe, it changes every generation. My grandfather took out the mushrooms and about half the garlic, my Dad added meat, added the garlic back, certain spices, carrot (to help leach away some of the acidity), I added a LOT of garlic, more basil, more onion, and shallots, and some extra vegetation (zuke, a little spinach, and a couple others.)

    Either way, sounds tasty to me!

    I just got told that I'm working enough hours. Even though I busted my ass on that report (and supposedly went above and beyond what they expected,) I should've done it quicker. 8-5 job? They want it to be more like 7-6, with time on the weekends too. They made it an official warning. 3 of those and I'm fired. I don't live to work, dammit. They were trying to hold the idea of eventually managing people over my head like a treat, when, in reality, it's the last thing I want. I want to be able to spend time with my family. I HATE the idea of being management. I'm sitting here trying not to cry because this job is turning into the antithesis of what I want from my career. But there's nowhere else for me to go. No one's hiring right now, not for engineers without PEs and assloads of experience. I'm starting to get that bad feeling again, that "I want out, I want out, I want out, get me the fuck out" feeling. If this is a cue to quit working and concentrate solely on my writing, then the fates need to come up with a way for me to be able to foot the bills while I'm doing that.
    I fucking hate this job.

    I'll try to remember to ask my boss on Monday if he knows about any openings for CEs coming up.

    Hey guys, I'm doing better now. Hung out with Twibble, Geek, and BS earlier. Had dinner at a thai place (red curry), and hung out at a coffee joint. Had fun. Trying not to think of how much I hate my job.
    Cleaned up the whole damn house this week. As in, it hasn't been this clean since we moved 2.5 years ago. Feelin' good about that.
    Tryin' to find other stuff to feel good about doing, but... I dunno. That warning really threw me for a doozie and I'm having trouble picking my self esteem back up. I busted my ass on that project and was told "you should've done it in a week" and "you've only been working 8-5, we expected more out of you, like 10 or 12 hour days, to impress us."
    Dicks.
