busy day

Ted was off work today, so I brought the boys to the zoo, got them in on the family pass that has my name/picture on it, and went off to town to work.

And work I did. I answered the critical emails that were piled up in my inbox and managed to triage another 500 or so. (And I still have 800 left, gah.) I spent time actually unflagging things because right now Gmail thinks EVERY EMAIL is Important, and I want to be able to use that feature for actually important things if I need to.

Halfway through the day, Gmail updated itself to its new format, which I acually will find potentially quite useful, though the first thing I wanted to do was add tabs of my own, which it won’t let you do. I’ll have to train it to recognize work stuff as ‘primary’, I guess, and everything else as social or promotional. It’s doing well with promotional already, really.

Anyway, so it was a good day. There’s plenty more to do, but I got a satisfying amount done.

Wow. This thing with Nic Cage & Ron Perlman just came on TV. Season of the Witch. In its first ten minutes or so, it’s pretty much proving itself to actually be worse than you’d expect something with Perlman & Cage in it to be, which is saying quite a lot.
