Things to remember: new names, new faces, what jobs go with which faces and names, which departments are where, the layout of the building, where I am, how to find things, where the bathrooms are, what my new phone number is, what my new email is, what my new work address is. I'm so dizzy, my head is spinning.

Is there a limit to the new things a brain can hold? Does information overload actually result in the gasping, frenzied deaths of millions of tiny grey cells? I am both enervated and fatigued.

Many things will be very good once the newness wears off and I get a grip on things. Some differences will take a lot of getting used to. In many ways, I was VERY spoiled at my old job.

And there is no...


sushi at my new job.

*moment of silence*

Karin: Can I play a computer game?
Me: Okay, but it's bedtime in half an hour.
Karin: How long can I play?
Me: Half an hour.
Karin: How long is that?
Me: *patiently* 30 minutes
Karin: *pause* Is that long?
Me: *laughing* Well, it's not VERY long, but it's long enough to play for a bit. But, no bitching when I tell you it's bedtime.
Karin: *runs away to the playroom*
