I am being not-so-subtly reminded that I am at my most discombobulated during the first week of classes. My whole routine is thrown off.

My colleague at work invited me to become a higher level union spokesperson today and my manager asked me to take over the management of our agency staff. I don't know what these roles will involve yet!

My Bill does this on occasion and it makes me giggle with delight every time. Ghostface is the excellent hider. I will be positively panicking, thinking that somehow she has escaped the apartment, and sometimes even shaking the bag of treats doesn't get her out. But she is always somewheres. Yesterday morning I left a low drawer open that goes back into the wall pretty far, and I went to close it and heard a little 'merp' and realized that the tip of her tail was just barely visible. How did she fit? The drawer is so full of things!


I think sometimes my cats go to a magical world that humans can't see or touch because they straight up disappear sometimes!

I really like the parents I work for, generally. But the mom works from home (which is great a lot of the time!) and she ALWAYS manages to wake one of the twins up from their nap because she's too loud in the kitchen! I don't understand it! T has been napping for less than an hour and I'm hoping that he's going to fall asleep again, he was mega cranky this morning and NEEDS a good nap. Uggggh.

I don't know what to dooooooo.

Okay so at work we have a billing company that we report all of our billing to. It's my job to send some basic info every time someone admits. And I do this. I fax it, I get a confirmation of the fax, I keep the confirmation.

Sometimes the billing company will send a list of everything they need for billing, and they just sent one of these lists, half of which I've already faxed them - the other half is things that weren't sent for a variety of reasons, nothing to do with me. And they CC all my higher ups when they send me these lists. I have the confirmations printed and saved saying that I sent them, but now I'm stuck in this weird place of ...I can just resend what I've already sent and give them what they want, but kind of looking like I'm slacking for not having already done it. Or I can say "hey I have confirmations that I've already sent half this list" and kinda look like a dick for calling them out on losing what I've already sent, but at least a dick who is on top of her work.

BLAH.

Honestly, I don't think it's dickish.

Say - I sent this this and this on XX date at YY time. If you need me to resend, let me know. I will also be sending you additional documents ZZ by AA time/date/whatever. We do it all the time with email at work, I just tell people when I sent it, they find it, no worries.

You could frame it in a way that you want to make sure that their fax is working as they're requesting these items again that you have sent receipts for. That way you're not entirely being a dick, and you are letting people know you're on top of your shiitake.

My crazyawesomebrave friend R flew to Chile yesterday to attempt to become the latest on a very short list of people (13th, I think?) to swim the Strait of Magellan under English Channel rules (skin... as in no wetsuit, just non-thermal textile swim shorts and a non-neoprene cap.) He's trained for two years for this swim. He should be aboard a Chilean Navy vessel by now. Jump window opens on Friday and lasts for seven days; he'll start his swim when the support crew deems the conditions as close to optimal as they're likely to get. I am simultaneously in awe, super excited for him, and scared as hell. And cold just thinking about it!

I do something similar and I call them on their shiitake all the time. Don't feel bad, it's not your fault and you shouldn't have to look not on top of your shiitake because someone else wasn't.

Also, the guy I communicate with is usually apologetic enough and seems fine with me saying 'nope, did that already, here, find submission date here.'

i dont think you look like a dick if you say you've sent them.
i'd probably reply all and list all the things on their list that you've already sent and say "these are the reports i've faxed over. Please let me know if you'd like me to resend any of them."
it's a dick move on their part to CC your bosses, so replying that you've done it already isn't a dick move it's just covering your asparagus and not having to work over again.

I sometimes have that problem with stuff I've emailed. Then I search through my mail and forward the old email from sent items with "hereby a copy of the mail I sent you on date"

I kinda did this. Listed out everything I've already sent and when and am now waiting for the backlash. It hurts my cause that the billing company really hates us. It's bizarre.

So, I guess if you never knew that Jodie Foster had not previously come out of the closet and never really bothered to think about her sexual orientation, then her speech would sound like complete gibberish. I didn't even realize she was coming out. I thought maybe she was dying?

I think Kevin Costner had an even crazier speech, though. I was genuinely concerned that he was going to walk off the stage and walk straight into the ocean to die. It sounded like his final words. He kept saying "it's been a great ride"

yes, listen to the speech! maybe it will make more sense if you realize she's coming out before you start listening!

it was all over tv while i was in the laundromat this morning. whoever the people were talking about it (i don't know anything about daytime tv), they seemed mostly supportive, at least? she seemed really hyped up, and i'm sure it was a huge moment for her, so *highfive*, jodie foster, even if i can't understand what you're saying.

I thought there was a thing a few years ago where people were all "jodie foster came out!!" at some awards ceremony or some such where she thanked her (now ex) partner? Maybe I imagined it though! Or maybe it just happens every time Jodie Foster says anything about anything?

I made brownies and left them too cool, and when I came back a large piece had been taken. My mom was standing in the next room. She tried to convince me that the dog had carefully cut the perfect square out of the brownies and taken it. Yes, I am so going to believe that, mother. Especially when you are talking with your mouth full.

Fee, I think you work in a medical setting and so do I and with the volumes of papers that come through, sometimes things don't get accounted for in time, yadda yadda. Just get comfy with saying you didn't get this or that and it's all right. Today I had to email someone who I know does her job well but a doc has been waiting a couple of days for something he really needs and...you know...I had to hurry her along to get him off my back. She's probably already done what she neesd to do and it didn't get processed so I couldn't see it yet and she's probably read my email and thinking "bisque" but...you know...she'll forgive me just like I forgive her when I get an email because I've been a bit slow on the uptake about something. We have to take care of things. You'll develop a thicker skin about hurrying people along or calling out their mistakes when it affects you or whatever in time. <3

Was she trying to be serious?
