Early start, Singapore vs. London

May 11, 2007 by glennji

I’m at work early this morning, sitting around waiting for other people to do stuff (I’ve done everything I need to already!) so we can get somebody to sign off the whole morning as a success. Oh the joy of tech!

I’m pretty much convinced that we won’t be going to Singapore now. It just seems to me that Dee’s work is stalling, trying to get a little “natural churn” and have people quit (rather than having to find them new work or give them redundancy payouts). Her team-leader (accidently?) mentioned that “… things will change in six weeks, obviously.” Six weeks? What happens in six weeks, asked Dee. “Oh, nothing, that was just a number I pulled out of the air.” Yeah, I believe that, really. No, I do. What do you mean, sarcasm? I don’t even know what sarcasm means!

That’s okay, London is nice this time of year. I’m in the “resource pool” now, so I could get assigned to a project down there at any time. I hope it’s soon.

I guess I should update the ‘blog?1 Not an easy thing to do these days, since even finding the time to do something as self-indulgent as public journaling probably just means there’s something else I could be doing instead, but maybe it’s an experiment I would like to continue?

It’s 8am on the first day of the month, and despite the usual late night, I’ve been up for hours. Jules has been an early riser for years now, and it has had the effect of training me to wake up at 6am each morning — for no good reason, since he’s pretty independent in the morning these days — and so here I am.
