Moving on up (again)

Last Friday I ended my run at the Pleveland Plinic completely exhausted, but totally relieved. At about 6:30 in the evening my nightmare finally ended, and I'm now on vacation for a week. I celebrated my freedom yesterday by sleeping in until 10:30 and staying in my pj's until noon. It was the best day off I've ever had.

Today I'm feeling a little sorry for the poor girl that took over for me. During her training last week, she looked completely exasperated (did I spell that right?) when she found out how much there really was to do. I don't think it will take her long to start getting mean like I did. By the time I left, I was fighting some pretty fierce road rage.

I'm all better now.

I'm looking forward to starting at my new job next week. I have a meeting on Thursday to discuss some stuff with the head of the lab. Then come orientations... Hopefully it will only be a day or two before I actually start doing some research, or at least training for it.

By the way, I'm still tinkering, so if you find any little bugs, let me know so I can squash 'em. I know about the "Remember me" problem in the comments. Working on it.


Drina-diva: Yes, you spelled that right. It is, indeed, T-H-A-T.

Oh yeah, you got "exasperated" right, too.

I REALLY must get some SLEEP now.

By the way, Kid, you might find this interesting (scroll to the bottom)

Drina-diva, I've read five (I think) of those books on the list, and I recall seeing classmates reading some of the others. I live in a fairly conservative town, but I don't recall anyone making a fuss about the books. Of course, this was in the 1970s, before toxic televangelist pseudo-Christianity really began to infest this nation.

As for "Chris", Karl Rove--and used-car salesmen--just love people like him.

Kid, my guess is chickenhawk. I've never met a soldier or vet that spoke that way.

Klara, I thought I'd have next week off, but (gasp!) I already started my job. I'll have to visit on a weekend
