How did it get to be Friday already?

Oh. I know. Friday came so fast because I've got an assignment due for WED 469. The assignment is on employee motivation, and I must choose a workplace problem, discuss it in terms of motivation theories, find some examples of similar problems, and then make recommendations to solve said problem.

The topic presented itself, really: Low-producing employees following a merger. As Fifteen of Twenty, I think I understand the employee point of view quite well.

In other news, the assignment came back from WED 398C...that's the paper on...um...Professional Certification. And now we just have to write the rest of it.

And then there's the SVDPV internship work...

Maybe it's a good thing that I have nothing to do today at work? Except for the paperwork to transfer three months earlier than scheduled, which would put me looking at orders in September instead of December, and trotting off to a ship in June 2005.

Which of course lines up with my plans to permanantly move to Indiana in July 2007. I've no idea what I'll do when I actually have to work for a living.

Raymond E. Feist
Signs King of Foxes
Saturday, April 10, 2:30 PM

We are pleased to continue the tradition of being Raymond E. Feist's "home town" store, and launch his newest Midkemia novel on Saturday, April 10, at 2:30 PM. Tal Hawkins, the hero of Talon of the Silver Hawk, has become an operative for the Conclave of Shadows. In King of Foxes, he goes deep undercover to get to the man responsible for the wholesale slaughter of Tal's hometown and family - an undertaking that puts him at odds with his own beliefs. Ray will discuss some of his forthcoming projects, like the comic version of "The Wood Boy" in stores in May, and Prince of the Blood: Author's Preferred 15th Anniversary Edition, due in June.

Whee! I haven't been to one of his signings since...since before I went to Maine, so that must have been between 1994 and 1997. The current series is definitely better than the Krondor, the... books, even if they aren't as good as Magician. He's interesting to listen to, though, and I don't have class that weekend, so whee!

(Note to self...save enough money to buy the blasted book.)

Growing up

Suddenly, I feel very unprepared for motherhood. My daughter was looking through a new book, and said, "And this one's got a picture of the cute guy!" Then she showed me a picture of Orlando Bloom as Legolas.

Oh, my.

Oh, no.

I am so very not ready for this.
