- Friday I was almost bulldozed out of my cell - sorry cubicle, the one with the view of the Mall and Parliament Hill - and moved to a temporary position. To make way for one of the summer students!!!!
- Tuesday I found out that I had no voice-mail access and it took the entire morning to set up my computer system.
- Today I couldn't log onto one of the Confidential drives.
- A staff meeting is scheduled for next week and I've been told attendance is optional.
Well at least no one is hanging around asking what's happening with my chair and stapler. Though come to think of it I can't find my stapler!
One advantage to my new - temporary - cell is that I have a view of the Ottawa River. When the temperature starts climbing into the high 30s you can pretty much guarantee that a thunderstorm will be brewing in the Valley. This one today was pretty spectacular - lots of lightening strikes, high winds and that rather strange - and worrisome - funnel like cloud formation. We didn't get a drop of rain downtown but the Québec side had a pretty wild time of it.
Tomorrow we're doing a River cruise - the weatherman promises no thunderstorms, no clouds and a break in the heat. It's a "team" building exercise, I'm invited so I guess I'm still part of the "team."
