Work just got busy at me (mostly because I'd been waiting on stuff, and now I'm Not Waiting). It's totally getting all (or damn near) of my available wrist usage for the uncertain future, because of this. (hopefully, strength work next week will be able to start up again. And hopefully my documentation for work has slightly better grammar than the previous sentence)

[livejournal.com profile] starandrea charmed the hell out of me.

And I found a neat toy because some of my pictures were tagged for potential inclusion for a different city of said toy.

Also? Tired.

Also? I think I may have too many days in a row of doing stuff this week, and may fail to make it to a halloween/housewarming/anniversay party Saturday night (right now, the concept of attending is a Very Very Bad Idea; this may change).

But for you...?"
Maybe."

co-worker: "If you want some entertainment, you can click on [new tree] and things will explode!"
me: *clicks* "Hey! Nothing went boomie! You said something would go boomie! Dammit!"

Skills assessment to be sent in on July 21st, Perm Visa to send application for in Sept, and various other things related to get done with appropriate timing makes for a very full brain.

So does having something new, interesting, but confusing to learn and then write a test plan for at work.

But my wrists still continue to allow for strength work while working a full-time week, as long as I'm not stupid and do too much over a weekend (even having done that a couple weekends ago, I still stayed out of flare). So wrists are hopeful. But they make it a lot harder for me to visit people, and to get to work when people go on vacation. And to keep in touch with people. But hopeful. :)

And I get to see a psychiatrist on Monday to see about being allowed to use the only meds which have actually helped me sleep (I will still have some nights when I can't, but nothing like without them) _every_ night, instead of every other.

ETA: headache of multiple days appears to have been congestion, FWIW, but also may have been related to sleeping poorly. Annoying.

It's really fascinating to watch how much better I am at coping with my various broken brain-ness when I actually get enough sleep.

Normally, I have _serious_ trouble with getting stuck in details and have major trouble seeing the larger picture. When I get enough sleep, however, my ability to stop drowning in details and see what higher level improvements would help things improves significantly. This is a rather good thing, since otherwise details will eventually overwhelm me badly (this is the most common reason for me to get burnt out, actually).

Yay for many bits of brain working better today, and making all sorts of 'these things really should happen, you know, and my time would be much more useful _here_ than doing those related but less useful things which would get fixed by fixing things _here_' suggestions.

I do love documenting the processes that I know well enough to explain them. 'Really, it works better this way, but no one has written it _down_ yet!' Of course, I _don't_ like trying to explain to people _why_ my way is good, so if people are actively against the idea, I tend to get annoyed and just not worry about it. On the plus side, though, where my skills are strong, this tends to not be an issue. Hell, I just had a random co-worker wander over while I was explaining what I thought needed to happen and throw more useful stuff into the conversation.




Y'know, I'm beginning to wonder if I _care_ if the sleep med is likely to cause dependance. It's not as if I sleep well or easily without it, anyway. (tolerance would be bad, though...) I want the doctor to call me back and tell me, already!

As the result of more-or-less begging for something different to do, today I am pretending to be a lab monkey. It's been a while since I've done stuff like this, and it's a good break from my normal job.

It is moderately disconcerting to have being easily confused listed as an asset by my boss. I mean, I get it, but... weirdness. :)

Hee! My boss is insane.

This is a good thing, in case anyone was unsure. Current group I work in reminds me strongly of my first job out of college, which is also good.

Red Hat Knowledgebase is finally no longer requiring a username/password in order to access the stuff in it. (ignore the last sentence in the first paragraph which claims a username and password is required - that sentence will go away soon)
