I talked to a woman at the Arkansas Literacy Council today about a possible tie-in with the 2007 BookCrossing
Convention and the 2007 Arkansas Literary Festival. If Little Rock is chosen as the convention site, it's possible that the ticket to the Convention could include admission to Literary Festival activities. Cool. (madame_urushiol
, I've e-mailed you further info on this. Let's discuss soon!)
Laundry breeds. My bedroom floor is proof. Just the other day, I could see the floor. Today it's covered by dirty sheets, shorts, shirts, skirts, sweats and socks. I've yet to figure out how two people who work in offices can produce so many dirty clothes in such a short time.
Heavy interview day today. Paid several people and discovered a new attorney fee regulation and procedure had been implemented at the first of the week. And no one told us. My first clue was the new screens that showed up in the software as I paged through the electronic claim. Oh, wait, we were e-mailed about it last THURSDAY, three days after the official training session was broadcast. I tackled the printouts of the new rules and procedures which, in typical government fashion, were published in half a dozen different places in the online procedure manual. This means I get to read lots of gobbledy-gook to find the meat. Since I'm the person in the office who will use this procedure most often, I will probably have to prepare a desk guide for the other claims reps to use until we can get a videotape of the training from the regional office. I'm not
very happy about this. Oh, I don't mind preparing a makeshift training session; I'm not happy that my supervisor is so focused on the new building for our branch office that he dropped the training ball in the first place.
I played hooky from choir tonight. It's cold and rainy. Phoebe sits on my lap, watching me type. The cats snooze on the down comforter. Time to heat leftovers and make a pot of tea.
