SQUEEEE! I got my bonus! - "You didn't hear about the polar bear?"
SQUEEEE! I got my bonus!|
SQUEESQUEESQUEE!!!! I know we don't usually talk about money stuff on our LJ's, but I was all bummed out because I thought I wasn't going to get a bonus this year (my first from Lilly), and I just found out I got it! SQUEEEEEEE!!!! What does that mean? It means I can do some stuff to my house without saving and scrimping for it... like getting the cracked garage floor fixed, getting the paint on the window frames scraped and re-painted, maybe getting the masonry cleaned up from some a few small (but very eyesorish) repairs. I really had my heart set of taking care of the few things that the seller, who did a great job of renovating otherwise, hadn't done. And, most of all... I won't feel resentful about not getting it (which I was feeling, ever since I got the impression that I wasn't getting one... and blaming it on politics). Feeling much more motivated about work now. *S*
And Lorna and Jules like the rest of my Bitter End pics! *G* So do I, although I included some pretty bad ones in there... but there are at least a handful of very nice photos - a couple of Eric that are (finally) not blurry from movement, a couple of Adam with harmonica, a couple of Adam with accordion, and some nice overall band photos - the latter being grainy but giving a good impression of their show.
whatdya mean LIKE?!!!
I'm dead, have died - please send flowers.
gorgeous is what they are oooh let me just do this..
ha now THAT surprised you!
Is it? Could it be... a sign of Eric-love?!?!?!
Poor Adam. *meep*
I know... I'm thrilled with that one, too. *S*
it is THE #1
photo ... without doubt... infact if I print all 3 versions of it - does that still count as 10 photos? *puppy dog eyes*
awwww I'm sure he'll survive!
*sends Adam 5 hugs*
agree with you there, it is a brilliant photo!
We loves the bonussesss, yes, precious. Boo's wouldn't pay for house repairs by any stretch of the imagination, but it's nice nonetheless.
I'm glad your uploading saga had a happy ending!
Yes, always nice - and thank you! *so relieved*
Let's just hope the recovery is permanent. *G*
Recovery meaning your management? Yes - they ought to realize when they have a treasure worth preserving!
My current homework involves (in small part) staff conflict and how often people don't get positive reinforcement at work. You know how if you smile - on purpose, even if you're not really happy - it triggers a physiological response in your body and you end up feeling better? I have a theory smiles can do the same thing among coworkers. Bonuses are even better! *BG*
*G* Actually, I meant recovery of my computer - *L*!
And, while the bonus was great... the feedback has been extremely... strange. Lots of managementese, if you know what I mean!
That is absolutely wonderful news, and so very well deserved am positive! One day am gonna get my behind over there to see your place of abode:D
as for the pics...dear god girl what's not to like? they are gorgeous!!! Wonderful...as the above Eric pic shows *G*
although sad there wasn't a Griffin amongst them;)
I know!!! And I never took any... sheesh! *L*!
sheesh indeed bad bad Ros;)
Yay! Good stuff that Ros should get instead of resentment! Congrats!!!!(-:
YW.(-: Oh, if your hobbity ears were burning, Kevin was mentioning you in a conversation
he's having with his step-father.
*gasps*... Kevin... has a secret! Mithrandir is his dad? Awwwww.....
*should have seen the family resemblance*
Yay for bonuses! I'm getting one too, this year, though before I started here it was like $2000 every year and since I've started we're lucky to get $200. What's that about?
Still, yay you. :D:D:D:D:D
Darn! Yeah, a shame they've gone down... but, still - that means it's "fun money!" *G*
