    Tired.

    I've also eaten way too much junk food today and I want some more.

    Work with large datasets that we have been collecting but have not dedicated enough resources to working with.

    Sounds like someone could work remotely which is probably a plus in today's hiring environment, I would imagine.

    A lot of it is really just SAS and SQL queries to answer the business related questions. We are using the data for other purposes already.

    So, a co-worker had the ultimate experience on a Skype/conference call the other day. The lead guy was droning on simply reading the slides that everyone could have just read themselves, and there was that one person . . . who did not mute her mic. They heard everything. She was cussing out someone or something - general hope is that it was her dog. She was moaning and stretching. She was expelling gas loudly from both ends. Apparently, she never had a clue. The host kept trying to tell everyone to mute their mics, but he had a very heavy accent, so she might not have understood. At least it took away the monotony of the call.

    Yes, we have several new hires that only know our organization for a virtual standpoint.

    Our older Skype system allows us to record. That would have been the perfect opportunity to utilize the function.

    We've also ramped up our digital experience research efforts. Lot more of them happening via various teleconferencing means. We used to do most of it with people in the office.

    I'm hoping that one big change post pandemic is that fewer people feel the need to work in an office. Fewer cars on the road, cleaner air! Granted not everybody has a good space to work from home, but still. All that unused office space repurposed as green living spaces. Hey, a girl can dream.

    I do feel the need to get out of the house on occasion. But I can live with not going in to an office too often. But as I noted somewhere, the air handling and cleaning systems are better than what I have at home.

    I'm hoping for changes, but every working at home in sweatpants might not be the final solution. Still, if we did more of that, people could look for home office space at the expense of walk-in closets.

    I'm imagining the next decade of HGTV shows.

    I was okay with open. It was when we went to no assigned locations that miffed me. Maybe that is part of the open concept?
