Yeah, I know, excuses, excuses, but there are good reasons and I have real motives for getting a lot done right now.
Strangely enough, the least of those motives is an impending visit by my bosses boss this Friday. He called me personally and said he'd love to meet me.
What makes this interesting is that he will be coming from California, from HQ, to visit. He's not coming to see me, I'm just an incidental along the way. The reason this is interesting is that I never told anyone in California about my transition.
Sure, you'd think they'd figure it out from the feminine voice when I answer my phone...they always ask for me by my given name, which I plan on changing this spring...and they do not realize it's me when I answer. You'd think that would make 'em wonder...but no one has asked, and since I have never even met my boss from California I found no reason to discuss it until I submitted the name change form to HR and it came across her desk in some format.
That's one of the things I like about this company...with a HQ in California the company guidelines are set out there using standards that a lot of the rest of the country doesn't live up to. Policies for non-discrimination across the company are quite broad and comprehensive and include gender-orientation.
But anyway, I asked one of the women in my office who knows this visitor and she says he's a great guy, and much smarter than my boss.
I like him already.
Otherwise I'm trying to get a lot in order here but stories about that will come later.
I have a complete physical on Wednesday morning...hopefully I'll have good news to report. If I don't, well, I'll be sure and whine and complain and make life surrounding me generally miserable. ;)
In the meantime, I added a new pic to my photostream. I was full after a big lunch though so I look a little chubby. I'll just have to swallow my pride and do a few more situps. http://www.flickr.com/photos/90472241@N00/
Catch ya later!
