Schedule Upfuckery, a dime a dozen

Looks like the other junior check-in chick is on vacation for a week or something, so I get to fill in. The first I learned of this was when the Check-In Princess (the senior one) asked me if I knew about it. I knew nothing about it, and suspected a leg-pull, except the Check-In Princess doesn't do those. At least, she doesn't do them for more than 30 seconds.

She dropped a note in my booth to call the Queen of Schedules today; I did so. I'm going to be filling in for the other girl, and there's really not much I can do other than that, given that things are how they are. I may see if I'm going to be in next Thursday...

I checked, and it looks like the insanity starts THIS WEEK NOW -- I'm check-in on Friday and Saturday as per the usual (often enough, Comic Pirate Super or Cute Geek Super is check-in on Saturday, but with the cute little chick gone and now Big Goth Super gone, and MOTLEY gone (again: wtf?), we're starting to get shorter-staffed in the supervisory department. Clone Name Super and Trendy Chick Super have been monitoring more often than not) but check-in Sunday evening and then check-in Monday afternoon, followed up by what looks to be a Friday-through-Monday stint as check-in again.


I mean, I could get used to this, but ...

... this is also insane.

I anticipate with great pleasure the e-mail that will be in my in-box tomorrow, explaining it all in small words and pretty pictures.
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?
