Icon Post

I have a fancy new icon now. Thanks grrry! I like the glow effect, quite nifty.

It's saturday night, and I'm working from home, running and monitoring a migration of data into production. I'm such a crazy party gal! What, this isn't what everyone does on a saturday night?

Fortunately it's not much work. I just need to be available, in case something goes wrong. If all goes well, which I expect it will, I just need to send status reports every two hours, and the rest of my time is my own. I'm just glad I'm able to do this from home, instead of at the office. I'm wearing comfy clothes, sitting on the couch, hanging out with my cat.

My cat who is giving himself a little bath. ["Cats aren't clean, they're just covered in cat spit."] Actually I think I'd like to take a bath myself later this evening. A people bath though, in a tub of warm soapy water.

It occurs to me that this icon is a bit incongruous, given that I'm talking about work. Oh well, maybe this should be my "work from home" icon! Hmm, no, perhaps that would be a bad idea. I don't want people to get the impression that I'm not a hard worker, because I am! And I don't want to do anything to discourage current and future employers from allowing me to work from home in the future....

Ah well. After my 11pm checkpoint, I think I'll look into taking that bath!
