NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!! I have literally just this week recovered from a nasty bug, I still have the lingering cough. And then today I've woken up with that nasty niggly throat feeling and the beginnings of a headache, that I always get when I'm starting to get ill. NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

Congrats, jojo! Happy veganversary.

I'm covering for my boss for the next two weeks, starting today. Already taken my first headache pill! (Not even joking.) I am not cut out for middle management type stuff AT ALL. I am very grateful for my job but I just don't enjoy administrative tasks. I just wanna transcribe and edit and work with words all the time (not put out brushfires and clean up other people's mistakes constantly, like my boss does) but I sort of have to cover for her because no one else knows how to do it. So, argh, I'll be whining here intermittently about it for the next couple of weeks. Brace yerselves for the coming whine-a-thon. I'll be happy again when I can crawl back into my work-with-words-only cave, I tell you what.

I hear you! I don't have to take over anyone's job, per se, but my work has suddenly gotten way more busy which means more responsibilities for me that my bosses would usually handle, like talking with clients and attending meetings and junk. I'm a graphic design/web dev/Flash programming person so I'm a bit nervous. I think I'll have to wear real work pants to a meeting!

I still get to work from home but I don't think my big boss was pleased about it, but the commute downtown is terrible (the Toronto subway system used to be the best in the world and it no longer ranks in the tops at all. It's terrible!) and I'm trying to write a novel and have great momentum right now and don't want to cut into that effort too much, so I said I'd cover on the condition I still got to work from home. So they reluctantly agreed (I know I'm so lucky) but yeah, I love most people but don't enjoy dealing with folks on this level and the new responsibilities. The e-mails and phone calls keep pouring in and argh! It's like the post office, it never ends. I'm just used to working peacefully in my own time. My nervous system will take a few days to adjust to the new more frenentic and demanding pace.

*As for my outfit, I have my roomy hemp pants on and my Voltaire shirt that says "Language Is A Very Difficult Thing To Put Into Words". I am resplendent in hemp! But it's not exactly office garb.

Awesome, jojo! You rule.

I'm having a hard time focusing on work, I'm so excited for the weekend to start. It's been a busy work week, and this weekend we're going to Toronto and having lunch with some PPKers, and getting foot massages, and seeing dinosaurs at the museum. Ahhh. I need this.

Thanks!!

PP your weekend sounds awesome, seeing dinosaurs is always brilliant! I have an awesome day planned tomorrow. Me, my husband & BFF are going to an Animal Carer day at a local sanctuary where we'll get to groom ponies, help socialise cats, walk dogs, bathe tortoises and play with bunnies, guinea pigs & hamsters. I'm so excited!!

No wallet still. It had my life in there. I had no idea how much work it is to replace everything you've lost.

Congrats, jojo!

I'm waiting for my former line manager to stop working because she's taking me and the other admin to dinner. It's sorta her last thing as our line manager, even though she moved over to another department 2 months ago. The point is, I'm hungry, and she needs to hurry up (but also because we have reservations and have to walk there after we go to the shops for booze).

That is such a bummer!! Replacing everything IS a total pain in the buns.

I bought some Nasyoa tofu on sale. I wanted some soup with tofu... I open up the tofu I bought (expires at end of March). It is moldy and gross.

wasn't there a thread about Nasoya tofu being bad a lot lately? I think supercarrot suggested that their new peel off packaging is not keeping it fresh. I had a tub that smelled and tasted gross and I haven't bought it since.

Possibly, I only bought it because it was on sale. I did find some silken tofu in my pantry so that saved the day!

I work as a medical transcriber and editor for a hospital. Also known as a medical language specialist by profession.

Another job that I think would be interesting that folks can work from home on where you read all day is medical chart coding (this is where you review patient charts and assign certain standardized abbreviations or diagnostic codes according to their diagnoses, medical and surgical procedures, etc. that are used for statistical analysis).

Another job is medical billing which I think would be boring because I used to do it for an allergist but to each his own on the boredom factor this may be interesting to some.

Some people think my job sounds terribly boring but my particular gig is quite fascinating as I have a very broad range of reports I am qualified to work on (*ORs and all medical specialities across the board, including dentistry and psychiatry). I love my job! It's perfect for folks who enjoy working independently and love to work with words.

*ORs = operative reports which are technically very challenging and specialized languge dense/heavy and probably the hardest of all clinical reports to transcribe (other than research stuff which is really tough and doctors usually do those reports themselves and they're not clinical per se anyhoo). I used the abbreviation ORs because I forgot for a moment I wasn't talking to someone I work with!

All done. Met dr for first time after and he acted like the two minutes spent explaining was too much time out of his busy schedule. I wish the nice dr I ad still took my insurance.

So, basically, I am supposed to continue same treatment that has t worked for the past two-three years and see him again in a few months.

Okay.
