Incomparable paycheck smugness

I checked in with the office, and my "occurrences" (absences in number-crunching form: an unscheduled missed day called in is 1, a missed day without any kind of notice is 1.5, late or leaving early are .25 each) are at 3.75, which makes me OK to get my next scheduled pay raise (which will probably be reflected in the next paycheck).

I was also informed via a memo on the supervise/monitor/assist sign-in/sign-out clipboard that phone goons pulled to do work other than Phone Goon Work (monitor, supervise, front desk, walk, otherwise assist) will be getting $0.25 an hour more for those hours that we're doing that.

Not much, but I believe I'm seeing that on my pay stub this time (in the form of "Adjustment"), and it's enough to cover my share of the writing group dinner for one week. Since that's one of the things helping keep me sane and socialized, I very much approve that my monitoring (which also helps keep me sane and socialized) is helping pay for this.

I think I like my job.
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
