overheard at work: I like celery but I need to have something with it. Like...buffalo wings.

More overtime tonight! \o/ We're getting punchy.

We just found out that we're getting a 2.5% paycut effective 4/1 for the rest of the year, but in exchange they're giving us 5 more vacation days.

I have to say that I won't desperately miss the 2.5%, and I will definitely enjoy the vacation days, so I'm not too flustered. But it does worry me -- at the same time it's kind of comforting. I think it means they realize we can't function with any less staff than we've got. Overall I'll take a 2.5 or even larger paycut over more layoffs, whether they be mine or anyone else's.

But the very very silver lining: I have 3 weeks of vacation and I'm accruing a 4th.

In other news, since I last posted, I've had to send my laptop off for repairs that will take 4-6 weeks, aggravated an old back injury and spent a couple days on percocet & muscle relaxers, and worked 13 hours of overtime. Also, I visited MissP, went to the ballet, bought one great dress for MJ and discovered that another great dress finally fit, and been hilariously oblivious in the face of a boy who was trying to get my number at Borders. Overall I'm calling the week a draw.

This time next week? I will be leaving work and heading to Boston for MJ. \o/\o/\o/

I'm so glad that half my friendslist will be there -- I've been too busy with work and overtime, and too lacking in a backup computer at home, to have completely kept up with you guys. But there many of you will be! Available for me to glom, and stalk, and harass! In realtime! It is a world of yay, and I am so, so looking forward to it. ♥ ♥ ♥

back in December my company gave us the choice of laying someone off in our department or taking a 4 hour a week 8 hour a paycheck paycut I was pretty pleased that all my people picked the paycut especially since the girl my boss was going to layoff isn't anyone's "best friend" I have to say paycuts are better than layoffs. One of the the other departments chose layoffs and I felt so bad when some of those people ended up getting laid off and left crying.
