Jump

plus studying for the certification exam that I’m sitting for on the 29th. And there’s that thing that I do during the day involving arithmetic and fancy acronyms that primarily mean “good little bean counter”

Usually it goes the other way. I read fiction and see how it applies to the world or how it’s a metaphor for something else … (anyone else see that piece by Inc. magazine not long ago about the best non-management books one can/has/should/ought read? That happens in my mind a lot *sigh*)
