Went to a play last night. You can read about it in magid's journal, where I've also made some comments.

Finally actually have real work now. Real work means hard copy to mark changes on and electronic files to make changes in. Of course, there are still lots of process questions that need to be fixed, and I spent two hours in a meeting this afternoon talking about that. And the co-worker was stupidly annoying, as usual. But real work means lots of proofreading, which I enjoy, so that's pretty cool. It's still unclear how this late start is going to affect the project. It sounds like January 15th is possibly slightly flexible out to the 30th as an end date, but that's not clear. There are noises being made that we might bring some more people onto the project to help speed things up later on. Of course, new people late in a project need to be brought up to speed, and that takes time, and there's no guarantee we won't end up with someone like my co-worker.

Going to the Bookbuilder's seminar tonight. It's in my building, and it's on the making of the fourth edition of the American Heritage Dictionary. magid is meeting me here, and we're having sandwiches for lunchdinner: egg salad and tuna salad (not together . . . hmm, I wonder what that would taste like) sandwiches she made this morning. I'm hoping that the seminar will be interesting. If it's not, though, I'll happily walk out at the break, which is what I did when I went to the other seminar of theirs that I went to last year.

Mmm, I could really go for a sandwich right now. I guess I should do some more work while I'm waiting.
