Yesterday: By the Numbers

Yesterday offered little excitement. The person I'm working for came in, had a 4-hour meeting and went home. This left me with little to do. But somehow I can still itemize everything. Maybe it's more than I thought...

2 - Total phone calls
35 - Weight (in grams) of the maple & brown sugar oatmeal package I was told was not for communal consumption despite the fact that it was in the kitchen next to the coffee maker.
3 - Boxes of WB promotional stuff I delivered to another building.
1 - Number of rear view mirrors in my car broken while moving these boxes.
18:08 - Length (in mins.) of "Cygnus X-1 Book II: Hemispheres" from Rush. A great time killing song.
4 - Postings on the UTA joblist I applied for.
0 - Number of interviews I expect to get as a result of these applications.
$5.43 - Amount of my bowl of chili (including tax) from the WB cafeteria.
- Approximate times I checked my email for something, anything encouraging.
1 - Individually wrapped pieces of red licorice consumed (those were communal).
2 - Crappy scripts I read.
0 - Scripts of my own that I worked on.
5:02 p.m. - Time (PST) at which I started watching the Obama press conference on
90 - Degrees (in Fahrenheit) when I left my office in Burbank at 6 p.m.
$140 - Gross pay for my efforts
12 - Number of ounces of Newcastle beer I drank after work (thanks Bruce!)
72 - Number of ounces of Newcastle beer I would have liked.
