Welcome new Hogsmeade peeps! I think there are more of you than in any previous Hogsmeade, so this should be fun.

I feeling like maybe I should start one of those all about me information posts, but I'm not really sure what to say. So, what you y'all look for in an info post?


Moving on.
I had my review at work on Friday. It was laughably good, and pretty much boiled down to, on the good side,"you come to work on time, actually do your work, and do other things without complaint if we ask you to" on the improvement side "you still have things to learn about the more unusual artifacts and sometimes you leave things out and I [the lab manager] don't know what their status is." I'll take it. After all this is the same company where my first review had the immortal line "Allison has finally started speaking. This is not such a good thing as her sarcasm can have a demoralizing effect on the team.", and in my second review I told the owner that management was often demoralizing to field staff. (I may have problems with my filter some times)

As part of the whole reviewing thing, we as the lab staff are supposed to review our supervisor. Thats not so difficult, he's probably the nicest most accommodating man you can ever hope to work for, but he needs some work on his ability to communicate to us what exactly he wants. He also has a tendency to constantly remind you of things that you didn't need reminding of or being terribly amazed when he comes to remind you and you are already doing the task.

No, the problem is that some of the other lab people want to review our Assistant Lab Manager, which was not asked for. That is a little more tricky. She's always the last of us to arrive, complains on facebook constantly about having OMG so much work or people asking her questions all the time (which is not actually happening), and also seems to think she has a much higher position in the company than she actually does (I have a post about that somewhere below). My difficulty is that I need to find something positive to say, and I just can't think of anything, and because of that I feel like sending anything in will just make it look like I have some sour grapes going on.

Finally, tonight is my last night of house sitting. Tomorrow I go back to my puppy and kitty-less life.
