Back at Work, and Car Stuff

Here we are, Tuesday morning.

I'm back at work this morning, though I don't have the car.

It feels weird to be back at the office after the long Victoria Day weekend and CanGames. This particular weekend exhausts me no end, and though I do spend the Monday resting up and reinvigorating myself after the convention, I'm still not quite 100% when I get back to Real Life(tm) the day after. There was also the concern this morning about my new boss, who was starting today.

I came in to find the new boss already at the office (this around 7:10 am), and he seems like a decent enough chap, and told me that he got a full report on me and my health issues from his predecessor, and given that he has Type 2 Diabetes as well, is willing to give me some slack. That's good news, since this is something that I was worried about. I told him about my back problems and he sympathised with me, and said that he's got no problem dealing with me in that regard to the same extent as my former boss here did. So this is good news.

On the subject of my car, I called the garage this a.m., and found out the head mechanic is off until Thursday, and they couldn't tell me anything about the state of the servicing of the car this morning. Waiting for a call back on this subject, and we'll see what's going on. While I don't miss the car per sé at the moment, I do find it convenient to buy groceries and the like, and will see whether I can impose/beg a lift for grocery shopping from friends of mine when I see them later this week.

Meanwhile, back to the work stuff.

Oh, and for those who are wondering, the first of the CanGames 2012 day reports will be out some time this afternoon, once I get home from work.

Glad work stuff sounds on track. I can guess that it's tough having to present health issues to a new person and hope that they get it and are able to accommodate you rather than make it into a contentious issue.

Yes, I was quite worried about this matter, given that the former boss and I had a good relationship in this matter. We'll see how things shape up with the new boss, and whether my life goes pear-shaped at all.

Good thing I already put in for vacation time during the GenCon week and a bit during August.

Your garage is run by incompetent boobs. If they hadn't screwed up over and over to pick up your car the head mechanic could have had it fixed before they went away.

IS there not another option for you to use?

The garage guys aren't nincompoops. I think it has to do with the fact that I wanted to get the car serviced around the Victoria Day weekend.

Yeah, they did screw up about picking the car up in the first place, but these things happen. (And that's been corrected now, so fait accompli.)

    Hullo, Eliza,

    Actually, they've novelised pretty much all of the Classic Who serials, though some of them are hard to find or are pretty pricey. I've got something like 150+ DW novelisations, and…

    Oh I didn't know Doctor Who had novelized the first one - that's really neat!

    I've got the Patrick Stewart memoir on my list as well but I need to watch Picard before I read it so that I don't get…

    I'm enjoying your thoughts on Emily Wilde's Encyclopaedia of Faeries. I've not read it yet but every time I see it pop up in lists online the cover grabs my attention.
