The plus: I stood up for myself, kind of, and asked him point-blank what he wanted me to not do if every time an email like that crosses my desk I not only have to respond to the email and update the DB, but spend another five minutes hunting down a physical chart. I'm actually proud of myself for that one, ten hours later.
The other good: the 5 train stops at 86th street. I'm off for a late-night omelette and slice of diner cake, and I won't even have to change trains!
The beautiful: This GIF set of Garak moved me to tears. altariel, are you still around LJ?
