    Why is it that someone asking me if I'm all right makes me more upset than I was before.

    Cause it makes you think "shit, they can tell I'm not alright".

    At lunch about an hour ago, one of the cafeteria staff was restocking the vending machines and there it was ... box full ... flap removed ... stacks and stacks of burnt orange wrappers and golden letters.

    They have come back for me.

    Part of me was already planning an escape route through the building while another part was mentally reviewing pressure points and grappling techniques ...

    And then the moment passed.

    Seriously, what kind of asshole steals candy?

    Went out to lunch with our HR person.

    Four rather strong cocktails later I'm a bit drunk at my desk.

    Haaaaaaappy Holidays.

    "zip, i dunno what it is about you, but there's something very cat-like about your face. i can't really place it. you'd make a good mountain lion." Hail, Satan!

    Just had my 30 and 60 day reviews today (I was at a training program when the 30 day mark passed). It consisted of my supervisor's boss coming to my desk, and saying, "Hey, it's time for your review. No incidents, keeping up with your work, I want you to keep working here. Sign this, please."

    I think you can also click the little 'bookmark' icon to unsubscribe? Maybe that doesn't work for threads you make.

    If the thread is bookmarked you can either click the bookmark ribbon to the right of the thread title on this page to unbookmark it or you can go into your settings and change it so you won't receive any notifications when someone posts in a bookmarked thread.

    I'm at a different site for a now two-day long meeting revising a document. We're taking a momentary break, so I wandered to the shared area where the cafe/amenities/bathrooms are. They're setting up an after-hours party to celebrate the teams moving into this new building. There are beers on ice in big plastic tubs. I am not invited to this party because I am not part of these groups and my office is not in this building.

    I am very sad about this fact.

    Principal brought in a bunch of candy and treats today for a staff "party" which generally tends to mean the teachers show up, eat, chat a bit, then back to work.

    I have a small helping of Sour Patch kids sitting next to me because of it and I had forgotten just how potent these things are.

    Bah. Don't be sour. People are just trying to be friendly.

    The correct answer is either "Greatest day of my life" or "more fun than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick". That or talk about something interesting, then people won't try to fill the void with dumb small talk jokes.

    We had our holiday lunch today and I had no idea, because when I switched positions a couple months ago, I was removed from a mailing list that was included in the mailing list for the building I used to work in and not put in the mailing list for the building I'm in now, so I never got the invitation.

    I just walked by the break room and conference room and saw them setting up and was like "What's all this then?"
