life begins - me

(no subject)

See the icon? See how the guys are blurry? (done intentionally via the 'smart blur' filter to keep the focus on Faith). That's my eyesight right now.

It's fun staring at an Excel spreadsheet without being able to focus on it! No, really it is!

In random news, the Scottish AU ficathon is going ahead. I'm morbidly fascinated by this whole thing now and may just (not as part of the ficathon of course) re-visit the plot bunny that was born from a snippet of dialogue that popped fully formed into my head one snowy day last winter (ned kid: "Ho, missus! Gonnae gie's wan o them?" Faith (cigarette halfway to mouth): "What did you call me?"). That is, of course after I finish the joss100, fanfic100 and iconfic150 challenges and start on the Africander challenge (oh and not forgetting the already existing works in progress...

Yeah, I have waaay too much to do right now!

And why do I have a random Jamie Cullum song in my head? I haven't listened to it for a good couple of weeks now but it's popped in there for some reason... "catch the sun... it never comes..." *sigh*

Oh - dragonydreams! I still owe you an icon! I'll have a go at it this weekend. And emeraldswan? You mentioned you wanted a Mal icon? I'll see what I come up with for you!
life begins - me

I have a headache, I can barely see, my focus keeps going in and out. I ask my boss if I can lave an hour early tonight and she tries to say no because my flexi-buddies aren't here. Yeah, this is me back to the issue that in my department I'm the only one who has to check with two other supervisors to see if I can take time off. We are really quiet, I'm not doing any time critical work right now and there will be two supervisors in the department (supervising four Grade twos by the way) if I leave.

Three weeks ago she (my boss who just tried to refuse me) said that it didn't matter so much in the last hour of the day so long as enough people were left to close down the department.

Four grade twos and two grade fives (plus a grade three who's nominally attached to the department in a non-supervisorly role) seems like plenty people to me...

I compromised a little, I'm leaving at 4.30 and for the rest of the afternoon I'm going to be bitching about just how sore my head is.

On a completely different topic - iyalode has a question about post-Chosen Willow and what she'd be up to in South America. I know there are a few Willow writers/readers amongst you guys so I thought I'd forward on the question. *g*
