Productive Monday

Accomplished things today, including many necessary, neat and new things at work, did some laundry, got some stuff ready to mail to Quincy and others, sorted through and organized some stuff in the garage, and got rid of two boxes of stuff. Yay! Now playing CoH with Kevin as a reward, although all the servers just went down in the middle of our mission. DAMMIT! Oh well.

Anyhoo, possible interesting development at work. My boss' new boss started last week, and I finally got around to meeting her (they don't introduce an Executive Director to mere peons like me, I've got to do that myself). As soon as I introduced myself she said, "Oh, you're Alan," which could be good or bad; fortunately, it turned out to be good. She basically sort of half hinted without actually telling me that they're talking about what jobs they want to consider for me, such as, oh, say, her assistant. Yeah, evidently I'm that good. Huh. But, that's just a guess on my part, although they must have said nice things about me because she came over 3 times for bits of advice, including helping her think through an organizational plan for keeping track of her direct reports. That kind of stuff makes one think.

Of course if they did want me to move up the ranks I'd be put in the uncomfortable position of taking it knowing I'm leaving in probably 5 months or so, or just coming clean with my boss and starting the countdown now. I did have a similar opportunity to apply for a job with my co-worker who just left our team and is looking for an assistant, but her I know personally and wouldn't want to screw her over by only staying for 6 months (and she pretty much knows I'm leaving soon, too). Still, the rest of the office doesn't know that, so if they actually offered me something I'd give it serious consideration.

Of course it's all just a guess, but it's nice to dream. :)

So since the servers aren't back up I'm off to bed.
