Monday at work.

10:41 AM 6/4/2007
Day started only semi-auspiciously, with That Dang Song echoing in my head as I tried to wake up. (The actual first waking of the day was auspicious, and I got hcolleen to work I think early so she could borrow some of their internet.) The strawberries were at a reasonable price; the cherries were not. I opted for strawberries instead, though this was not what I was getting set for.

I want to smack someone in the head with a brick or something. They got their hours not only wrong, but WRONG. It really helps if you account for the dialing hours between the hours of 0830 and 0915. I have no idea how many of your phone goons were there for that time, because you didn't show them on the hours chart. Since your hours chart never lines up with the automatic timeclock, we use the percentage from the hours chart to divide the hours from the automatic timeclock. Good going, my friends. Good going.

Lunch was courtesy of company leftovers. The great thing about working near the rooms usually used for meetings is that if you get your timing right, there are leftovers from the lunch meetings, and that's a happy thing indeed. Today's was tasty stuff in warm thick flour tortillas.

New hires means insanity.

There were very bad things going on with the paperwork today. I'm grateful I only had to deal with some of it.
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?
