On the side of a hill in the deep forest green, tracing a sparrow on snow-crested ground,
blankets and bedclothes the child of the mountain sleeps unaware of the clarion call.
On the side of a hill, a sprinkling of leaves washes the grave with silvery tears,
a soldier cleans and polishes a gun.
War bellows, blazing in scarlet battalions, generals order their soldiers to kill
and to fight for a cause they've long ago forgotten

Work, werk, wurx

Well, I have something to top the Colorectal Surgery Group, the [family/donor name] Urological Institute. That's one school I don't want a degree from, know what I'm saying? Although, in my head, I'm reshooting the DeVry Institute and ITT commercials for the UI.

And now, at work, everybody is concerned over the time I spend at work. It's one of those things that let's you know "something has been said about you somewhere else." (insert ominous music here).

Hmmm, hope it's not the classic organizational catch-22:

If you're working so many hours then you must not be productive/efficient.

If you're getting things done so quickly then (choose one) a. you must not have enough work to do OR b. you must not be doing the job very well.

And what was that emoticon? /snerk/ ?

Yeah, that's why I track my own metrics. This is a record setting month for several of my tasks, and I can show over a years worth of data to prove it. Right now the mgmt know in their heads what they've asked me to do, but I don't think they've thought out the consequences or accepted in their souls what this work load means.

They soon will. I have Monday off. That started to but a wrench in their works late yesterday afternoon. And I work with the owner directly on a few projects, so he sees the time stamp on my emails (and the incoming emails from the clients). My biggest fears are they'll move me to second shift (which I can't work and be a councilman), or hire someone else for second, which would cut off overtime all together.
