Work stuff  

Before I get immersed in other stuff and forget entirely to mention it, I want to thank everybody for their empathy and sympathy about my frustrations with work that I wrote about not long ago. The fact is that I really do like my job. I pretty much like what I'm doing and I like most of the people I work with. Which is why it gets so darned irritating on those occasions when everything seems to be going south. But I took an extra day off this weekend and I'm calmer now and everything is starting to look okay again. (I suppose that may change when I get to work tonight, but we can hope it doesn't.)

Vootie!

*hug*

Glad you're feeling the upswing.

Thanks. Sounds a bit like a slogan for an antidepressant TV commercial: Feel The Upswing! (Followed, of course, by the obligatory list of possible side-effects delivered in the TV equivalent of small print.)

*guh*
(That's "*hug* back", don'tchaknow….)

Oh, good. It is amazing how a little distance from the daily travails can put some good perspective on them. I hope your night and week go well.

Amazing, yes. Fantastic too. Most humble thanks, sir, and yours as well.

Glad to hear it. Glad to hear from you.

Heh, saw your mood - Chipper - and what first came to mind was a wood chipper...

Thanks. You too. Been wondering…

How much wood can a wood chipper chip…?

Ahh, yes, that extra day off can make a humongous difference sometimes. Hope that things go well, then.

Yes, I call them mental health days.

Martha?! Where did I leave the mental floss?

Yup. Slept much of it, acually. 'Twas most refreshing and useful. Thanks!

I am glad you're feeling better. Sometimes work can get anybody down; I have a pile of grading forthcoming as the semester winds down here, for example, but it comes with the territory. I look at it this way: soon it will be over. For a while, at least. :=)

Just remember my favorite line from an ancient Rune illo: "Don't know why / ain't no warts in the sky / Froggy Weather!"

Vootie, indeed!

Sounds like a Tom Foster. My favorite line from an ancient RUNE illo is: "He was going to turn me purple but I told him I was too young to dye."

I'm glad things are going better for you.
