What I Learned Today

1) Basics of Adobe Photoshop. Best. Program. Ever.

2) Improving my knowledge of Access. We're trying to implement a company-wide database system that we can apply to all of our markets. It's gonna be a tough sell to the Boys, and me and the amazing woman who put it together had a pow-wow to try and get me familiar with it so I can take it back to NY.

3) Got familiar with the electronic filing said amazing woman had set up so I can replicate it in New York.

I've got some good stuff I wanted to bitch about tonight. Will get there eventually. Leaving early today because of general exhaustion. Out to lunch. More later.

Photoshop is awesome. It's a bit of a sledgehammer to drive in a nail for what I use it for -- removing redeye and cleaning up the brightness and contrast of home photos -- but it really really rocks.

And hey, if you draw your world-maps freehand and then scan them in, just think of how cool you could get them to look. It's possibly one of the best forms of procrastination EVER. :)

Oh, sweet fuck, Patrick, don't encourage me!

I'm practically salivating. Imagine me rubbing my hands together in gleeeeeeeee!

Most excellent... And during downtimes at work, I can work on world maps, and if anyone asks what I'm doing I'll be like, "I'm teaching myself Photoshop."

Fucking sexy.
