--- My brother missed his flight this morning, which means he'll be getting in too late for me to pick him up so he has to get a rental car.
--- The 20 hour/week cap I'm supposed to have on this sponsor does not seem to be happening so well, so I have work to do right now (before I leave in a couple hours, ack) that I was planning to do next week.
++-+ A friend of mine from Hopkins emailed saying she's looking for interim staffing. I gave her some advice, and offered to hook her up with my boss to talk numbers. He asked me if I wanted to do it (OMG YESYESYESYES) but I was fully staffed (technically - I'm not getting anywhere near my 40 billable hours, which makes me look bad). I talked to my boss of the other two gigs and begged for them to allow me to be staffed 150% so they could offer my services specifically, which I think would sell the project. There are a few snags with the Hopkins system, but I may be working part-time in Baltimore soon! :D :D :D And 150% at work, which means crazy hours. D: D: D:
--- Jeeves has been acting a little weird for a while. About a week and a half ago, he started this leaning thing, where he sort of leaned to the left, and walked to the left, and looked to the left. It freaked me out because it looked neurological. We let it go for a little bit because we thought maybe it was some weird hairball thing, that he was just favoring that side. Then he started walking in circles to the left. He can sort of walk a straight line (though he veers left, and if there's a doorway, he goes in it and has to turn in a circle to the left to get out of it) but he seems distressed, and goes in circles for quite a while like he can't decide what to do. We brought him to the vet yesterday and they told us it was, indeed, neurological. They did blood work that said it's not an infection, so that's sort of good. The bad is that then it's probably genetic (or related to a trauma we didn't see) and while the prednisone they gave us will help some, or maybe even clear this up, we are going to have to start watching him much more closely. :(
+++ Surprise DCI last night - saw a Fathom Events email and remembered the quarter-finals were last night. After dropping soleta
and Jeeves at home, went out and spent the night watching drum corps. *sigh* I love that shit, and holy cow, they were AMAZING this year. I have lots of notes I'll type up when I magically get some downtime.
--- Two nights of less than 4 hours of good sleep followed by several really crappy, really interrupted hours of not-really-sleep means I'm a cranky baby.
+-+ Tonight the sisters are getting a picture as a gift for mom's 80th birthday party (tomorrow) and I'm cranky about that, too, because I wanted to do it for Mother's day (which I thought would've been more appropriate) but they didn't get their shit together. :( Still, having a new sisters picture is going to be nice.
has to stay home with Jeeves to give him medicine, so she won't be coming to mom's party.
was going to make mini-Betsy buns we were going to fill with different salads... that's not happening now (between yesterday with Jeeves and DCI and today with David missing his flight and me having work), and I don't know what the hell I'm going to bring. Probably shit we don't have to make, unless David gets ambitious tomorrow morning - BUT I AM SLEEPING IN, DAMMIT.
--- Gotta get this work done, shower, and get on the road to make the photo appointment.
