The Operation, day 2-ish?

Lunch breaks today were crazy, yo. Turns out the 4 new people on the team mean we don't get an extra lunch break slot -- we need 1 more person for that. The situation is becoming dire. Monday and Tuesday were dreadful. Today wasn't, because I planned ahead.

Had a sane breakfast -- part of a leftover batch of soup. That was 5am-ish. (Too salty, but meh.) 9:15am, I grabbed one of those little vending machine packages of Oreos, and a Dew -- I knew lunch was going to be delayed, and it was the better of a bunch of iffy choices. True to my prediction, I didn't get lunch break until 2pm. That's just unacceptable, even though I was doing OK because I'd decided to take responsibility for my blood sugar instead of pitching a baby whiny fit about it. I had M&Ms then on the principle that I was grabbing lunch immediately post-work, and proceeded to do so. Hooray salady-thing at Baja Fresh! Cilantro and I do not love each other, which does make Mexican food problematic. Supper was just now, and was the remainder of that leftover batch of soup.

Oreos and M&Ms are not good lunch items. Especially not the no-peanut ones. And I'm not the only one on the team suffering from the bad lunch break schedule. We went shopping and got some bulk packaged snacks -- cracker packages, peanut M&Ms, and beef jerky. None of those are the best, but they are at least semi-reasonable and far better than having a blood sugar crash.

Motion: not so great today. Nothing out of the ordinary.
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?
