Hazy Hot and Humid

Why do people in senior management suddenly lose sight of the fact that you can't just throw money and/or people at all problems? At work the past two days senior management has told us that we need to complete two major projects by the end of October, or the end of November at the latest. When asked how they came up with the date, they simply said "because it has to be done by then." When my boss told senior management that such a date was basically impossible, they replied that we should let them know what we need and they'll give it to us.

Well, the thing we need is more time, but that apparently wasn't what they meant. Basically, they want us to complete two 4-6 month projects that utilize the same resources in the next 3-4 months, and that doesn't count the fact that we are in the middle of another project that has to be completed before any substantial work can begin on the other two projects -- and the current project won't be done for at least another month. So now we have to spend the rest of the week not working on the current project to come up with a list of things that need to be done for the other two projects to prove that we can't meet the dates that senior management has come up with. It's quite frustrating.

But enough complaining about work -- let's talk about the weather. Yesterday was hot, and today is even hotter, and it sucks, because you can't really do anything outside -- it was still 90 degrees in Manhattan at midnight last night, so you can't even do anything at night either. At least my apartment is air conditioned, right? Well, it was yesterday, but our possessed air conditioner decided it would be a good idea to set the temperature at 88 (the highest it will go) while we were at work, so I got home and the living room was a balmy 85 degrees -- my room was 93 when I got in, it's down to 89 now, but that's still really bad.

Tomorrow isn't supposed to be quite as bad, which is good since I will be outside for Hootie and the Blowfish, but there's also a chance for severe thunderstorms. Last week it rained for a bit and everyone went into the bars. It was probably in the low 80's then, and with all the bodies crammed into the bars the bars were probably around 85-90 degrees. I can't imagine what it would be like tomorrow if it's still around 90 and it starts to rain, especially since they are predicting over 8,000 people will be there.

Not much else exciting is happening, but I'm looking forward to being on vacation and going back home to Long Island for the week. It'll be a much-needed vacation.

One last thing before I go -- Yankees are now in first place in the East by a percentage point! Go Yankees!
