Quiet Sunday morning...

14 interviewers supposed to be assigned to the job.
8 interviewers seated on the job.
5 bother to show up at all.
4 show up on time.
1 leaves early.


I am running the job today.
Nice of Obso1337 Super to tell me I needed to come in
at 7, not 8 as scheduled.
By the schedule, I was early, with doughnuts.
By what the job needed, I was late. (With doughnuts.)

IT showed up last night to look at the second
downtime. Dave Matthews Band Fan Geek was in early to
take a look at the dialer logs. The rest of IT came in
a little later for some scheduled maintenance. I asked
if tomorrow should be a doughnuts day. The response I
got was not particularly encouraging for what they
were going to be up to.

IT was still here when I arrived at 7:45 with
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?
