Long Frkn Week

12 days off then jumping cold turkey into 5 day work week has been brutal. Managers here are really pressing for us all to things debugged since we are "rested and refreshed".

Some of these same managers forgot to submit paperwork renewing contractors or extending co-ops so half the people I work with have no access to the internal network and it takes 2 days for paperwork to process and another 2 days for passwords to reset.

I also have to adjust to a whole new fresh group of co-ops helping out it the lab and somehow we ended up with group with similar names. So far I usually call one of them "Nautica" because that was shirt he was wearing 1st day, he seems resilient so far and rest of co-ops have decided this will be his nickname for time being.

Poker front has been a scuffle as I work to clear Iron Man bonus, I am +/- $10 of break even once I factor in rakeback and have ~$100 in uncredited bonus earned. Key as always is not to tilt off before bonus is cleared. No clearing bets as the points tard has retired from online poker.

Weight loss front I went from just prior to Thanksgiving to today at -10.4 pounds. Since wife was cooking christmas cookies a bit feels like a huge win. Nurse at doctor's office thought so too but she was concerned about my pulse, apparently there will always be some issue.
