I have the worst case of the I-don’t-wannas! I’m editing a book full of text like this: [[A+fr+ki,pu,pu,D+pu,pu]]. I’m bored out of my skull. I could switch to the other project that I should also be working on, but the rules of what criminal evidence can stand in court and what is inadmissible and why is also tedious. Only six more characters’ fighting strategies to go … a few more hours. Somebody kill me now, preferably with a Triple Duck Hook to Sway ([[pu,pu,d+pu,A]]).

    SO there with you. My day has gone like this:

    A. Design Criteria, General:
    1. Structural design of membrane-covered frame structures and their components are responsibility of manufacturer.
    2. Furnish drawings and calculations for structure in accordance with Section 01340.
    3. Review of drawings or calculations by Engineer or Architect does not relieve manufacturer of responsibility for adequacy of structural design.
    4. Assure completed structure is free of excessive noise from wind-induced vibrations under ordinary weather conditions.
    5. Conform to dimensions indicated.
    a. Plan dimensions must be maintained as indicated.
    B. Standards for design:
    1. The following publications are for the standards listed below but referred to thereafter by basic letter designation only. They form a part of this specification to the extent referenced thereto:
    a. California Building Code 2001, hereinafter referred to as CBC or building code.

    Lather rinse and repeat for eight freaking hours. And don’t believe for a minute Section 11066, Chopper Pumps, is any more thrilling. Gah. If it weren’t for the intarweb I’d be mad.

    I have SO been feeling this way all day too! Except now my crap doesn’t seem quite as tedious. Sorry Lisa. 😉

    Recommendation 1:
    As in the 2000 survey, a deficiency in the charts was
    the absence of allergies [or “no-known-drug-allergies”
    (NKDA)] documented in one central location. Each chart
    has a dedicated space to write allergies inside the left
    chart cover. We found some allergies were documented
    in the space, while others had allergy information on the
    triage note template. We recommend, once again, that
    this significant information be documented consistently in
    one central location where it can be easily seen by the
    treating physicians and nurse practitioners.

    Bah! Sometimes being a wordsmith isn’t all wine and poetry.

    OK, I think Lisa’s work wins the prize for maximum tedium. Four characters to go now. If I can just push through it, I can invoice on Monday.

    I’d bitch with more specifics, but an editor I know recently got canned for her mate’s violation of NDA (not her violation–guilt by association). I’m nervouse ’cause my boss man sometimes reads my LJ.

    That should be nervous, not nervouse. Nervouse sounds like a salon hair product.

    Yikes. Yet another reason why I don’t even mutter about LJ at work. Or make public posts (except by mistake). *sigh* Division 13 specs today, I can’t WAIT to get to the screw press conveyor spec. Heh.

    Fortunately my boss man and I have enjoyed a happy détente for years. Thank goodness for Friends-only posts.

    Mine have been a proposal explaining the differences between IMAP and POP, a Dell server and an ASI server and why thumbs don’t go up butts.
