9 Aug 2000 dancer   » (Journeyer)


Sick, sick, sick. Sick for two days, and still sick, but back to work anyway. It's not quite dawn yet, and today sick seems to involve: Being emotionally volatile (so there's always the risk that I'll say something really unfortunate to someone today), not being able to get back to sleep (my sleep centre has been shutting down about an hour or two before dawn the last couple days), feeling weak (but hey, no biggie, right?), and leaving a trail of evil yellow mucous everywhere (I can pretend I'm some sort of slug, I guess).

Must drop feline off at vet (bad tooth) this-morning, and pick feline up from vet this-evening. This puts careful constraints on my hours today. On reflection, this is probably a good thing.


HR never got back to me with a date. Did Igor's performance review and wrote it up (this is before I got sick..well, before I started taking time off because of it). Wrote the necessary pay-adjustment authorisation. Took them to HR who gave me a blank 'What's all this then?' look and disclaimed all knowledge of the meeting we'd had two weeks before and that I had been waiting for them to get back to me. Is anyone else encountering a rash of HR amnesia at the moment?

HR then took them to Dan, which undermined my authority. A little respect thanks, guys.

Not much else happening. Sick, as I said.
