No witty stuff here.

The issue of my coworker sexually harassing me has been dealt with. His hours have been changed so that out of all the hours we both work in a week we'll only see each other 1 of those hours. He has been forewarned that his behavior was unacceptable and it will not be tolerated.

Work today was a little bizarre to say the least. They've moved me from my little closet into my boss (Becky's) office. Today she had letters she needed to send out so she talked while I typed (because who knew I could type the fastest of all the employees?) but there were five of these letters she needed to have written up and my boss has that Lincoln accent so it was all improper grammar and I hate the Lincoln accent, I really do.
So, that took a good 2 hours. I was able to break free for a few minutes to visit the microwave to heat up my soup for lunch and then back into the office where she proceeded to start talking to the printers. And by talking I mean, she yelled at them until she figured out that one was out of ink and the other was out of paper.
When she had calmed down from that she started singing...loudly, and very very off key. First it was Beauty and the Beast, "Oh To Be Human Again," then she switched over to, "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz." By the end of it, I was ready to poke myself in the ears with fire pokers. Honestly! I know it was slow but that was painful.

I'm starting to miss my closet.

As far as my classes go, I know I'm passing Theatre and Biology, as far as English and Feminist Theory go, I'm not really sure.

To give you an idea of how far behind I am on the subject of homework, here's the list:

(Keep in mind I need to complete this all at the very least Sunday, at the very most Tuesday, of next week.)

In Theatre: Must read pages 217-405 before Tuesday of next week and complete a 4-page play report by that same time.

In English: Must read Ralph Waldo Emerson's "Self-Reliance and Other Essays" (117 pages), Edgar Allan Poe's "The Raven and Other Favorite Poems" (50 pages), and complete a 1,000 word paper over both books by Tuesday.

In Biology: Lab Report that is due Monday (who would have thought that Biology would be my easy class?)

In Feminist Theory: Must read 5 chapters of 60-90 pages and complete 5 2-page papers by Sunday.

Like I said, lots of stuff to do. On top of that I have to start figuring out my topics for final papers and I have like 3 articles to write for the first edition of the newspaper.

I'm swamped.

I'll see you all when I dig myself out from under this hole.


P.S. I may...have to disappear for a few days and it won't be because I'm playing catch up on homework. I have some health issues I'm working out right now.
