Challenging Thursday

Scraped ice from my car windows today. It was awful. (How much longer must we endure this harsh winter?) Arrived at BHFT. My ID badge didn't work when I swiped it across the door sensor. Briefly considered going home. A coworker let me in, and I stayed indoors all day, so I wouldn't have to deal with uncertainty about whether I could get back in or not. The manager who was supposed to approve renewal for a bunch of contractors was across the country. This is what passes for excitement in my working life.

Worked on DWN's book of tales. Lulu.com will convert a Word doc to a pdf for you when you upload it to prepare for printing. The doc should have an even number of pages (seeing as how pieces of paper have two sides each). I use the "sections" function in Word to allow for blank headers and footers on the blank pages. The pdf was being generated with 207 pages, apparently because the section at the end confused it. So I deleted the last blank page, so it will come out at 206. The result: 205 pages. *eyeroll* I will bend it to my will eventually, but it's annoying how common that sort of quirky behavior is with computer applications.
