And here I am, in icon form now.

I'm probably finding this more amusing than a 39-next-week-year-old should, but I don't care!

Manga me

(Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] whumpdotcom for this).

Me as a manga character (if my leather jacket was a little longer and I needed a haircut!).

...just one of those crazy weeks.

On the good side, I had my quarterly review and ended up with a 'very good' for the third quarter running.

I managed to get to the gym 4 times during the week, which was better than I was hoping.

I've now read the first five volumes of the Fruits Basket manga (my first manga) and it is every bit as enjoyable as the Anime.

On the not so good side, it ended up being one of those weeks when I ended up working close to a day's worth of extra (unpaid, natch) hours.

I had to spend a few hours preparing to do a presentation to our Director which ended up being postponed.

P. was ill towards the end of the week which meant that we had to postpone our long-planned trip to see Andrew Butler in Canterbury. Still, it did mean that I ended up chatting to Andrew on the phone for almost an hour which I haven't done for ages.

It's going to be another fairly long week next week, workwise, with already 3 days with meetings booked to finish after my normal working hours. Sigh.

Never mind, a pleasant weekend so far!

This week

Hi guys.

I'm very aware that I've had all these things in my head that I wanted to write about this week and I haven't got around to doing any of them. Such is life... Part of it has been that I was having one of my very tired weeks. I can't remember if I mentioned this here, but early in the year I discovered I had been suffering from Glandular Fever (Mononucleosis for my American friends). Luckily mildly, but it hasn't quite gone away. The main symptom is that some weeks I just about get through the days and then feel too tired to have the energy to do anything very much. This has been one of those weeks.

So a brief summary:
Finished Olympos by Dan Simmons which I had been looking forward to. I would sum it up as extremely entertaining at the same time as being complete tosh! I thoroughly enjoyed it though.

Work has been very busy and more than a bit stressful this week. I had to lead a workshop on Thursday and on Friday I presented a new appraisal system to half the department. This seemed to go pretty well. Unfortunately my favourite user has been making my life a misery, with more to come no doubt. Oh yes, and I've found out that I'm going to have some staff to manage. Bleugh!

Watched all of Fruits Basket on DVD. I definitely want to write more about this at some point. To sum up: we laughed, we cried, it made me think about family stuff and upbringing in a way I hadn't for a while. So I cried some more. I can't recommend this enough though. Now to read the Manga to find out the bits the Anime missed!

Watched bits of Wimbledon and Live 8.

Currently, just about finished reading (in PDF version) Cory Doctorow's latest (reviewing for Interzone. An odd one. I sort of like it, I think.

Anyway, I hope to have a bit more energy next week. I know I wanted to write about Fruits Basket and the recently finished Doctor Who series before I forget what I wanted to say!
