"Realizing that our actions, feelings and behaviour are the result of our own images and beliefs gives us the level that psychology has always needed for changing personality."

To you know who: Leave this on your own conscience. If you hadn't been doing questionable things, you wouldn't be so worried about these alleged anonymous emails. I'm sorry if you think it's me, but no amount of temper tantrums, misguided dramatic gestures or transcripts from psychology texts with dramatic highlighting are going to change the immutable facts. Whatever it is you think I've done, you're wrong. I'm sorry that the world doesn't tie up in a neat, logical consistent ending like the end of a Scooby Doo episode. I really wish I has answers for you. But I do not.

Went to Steve's house today. Sara's away, and I think he's feeling a bit lonely in the new place with no company. We got his wireless network up and running, and are now awaiting the activation of his DSL. This is going to rock so hard.

His and Sara's PCs got slammed hard by that new LoveSan worm/virus thingy. As always, his iBook and my Powerbook were unaffected. Hopefully we'll get that taaken care of tomorrow evening.

I'm really disenchanted with my job right now. normally I accept the bullshit sales crap that try to give us as the price of working at a job I don't loathe, but the past 10 days have really sucked ass. We've been extremely shorthanded due to training people on the new computer system we're getting in 2 weeks. This makes me happy, as the old system was a relic of a time when banking transactions were done in cuneiform on stone tablets. However, on days like today we have 3 personal bankers (that's my job.) We normally have 5. Tomorrow we have 2. That is ludicrous. And, to top it all off, they want us to continue making sales calls. now, these aren't cold calls. (If they asked et to do cold calls, i'd quit on the spot.) However, nobody wants to be called at home to be offered allegedly "valuable" products and services. IF THEY WANTED THESE SERVICES, THEY WOULD HAVE ASKED FOR THEM!!!! Doing this stretches the very limits of my patience on a good day... and I haven't had a good day at work in 10 days. There are change of address forms and check printing orders 3 weeks old on my desk and they want me to waste my fucking time making unwanted, unnecessary phone calls? I call bullshit. I have never, in over a year of working at Astoria Federal had one of these calls result in a sale of any kind. That are a pointless waste of time, and I hate them.

Ok, I'm done for now. Tune in tomorrow for more drama, and more ranting and raving. I should have gone to bed an hour ago.
