I have no idea if that's a word, but I've caught the grippe that's been going around here. And hey! That's pleasant, especially when I have to go to sleep at 9pm every night because I'm wrecked.

The good news is that competency #8 was signed off and now I'm trying to figure out what I know about oral and written communication skills as they apply to group work.

I know! You envy me SO MUCH. But after this one I'll be able to count the remaining on one hand. That will be sweet. Shut up...that is what I've got right now. That and the chunk of chocolate covered banana I ate earlier.

In other news, next week is the big industry awards show!

Um, yeah. I go because it's free and sometimes I see an old co-worker or two and we catch up on the status of my degree progress. This year, however, the invitations were coveted because a lot more people work here now...there's not even a spouse invite anymore. Not that mine wants to go...he humors me with the work-related stuff. And I think my boss finds him attractive. He is quite popular with the gay contingent. Anyway, it's all hush-hush since the table only seats 10... and I'm the only non-management person invited. Because I am the princess.

But! At least I have my usual non-spousal escort who is also invited so I have a designated driver for when I have too many gin and tonics before the show starts since I know that the company that buys the wine is cheap and we'll only get two glasses. Now that's a sentence. And I get to dress up so no one recognizes me. That's fun, too. I like to introduce myself just to see the reaction.

Back to group work.

I just had a chocolate covered banana without the chocolate!

Umm, I hope you have recovered from the grippe. Was it as terrible for you as it was for me?
