Plan of Action

Crap! I missed Desperate Housewives last night! Oh well. I guess being stressed out of your skull will do that to a person, make you forget the really important things in life.

Still, I'm not feeling as awful as I did yesterday, despite not having slept a wink again. I had a really good talk with the therapist this morning, and she's given me a lot to think about. A meeting has been convened for Monday afternoon -- one that Jobsworth simply has to show up for, as HR is involved in it this time as well. It's going to be him, an HR consultant, Tinny (the trick cyclist) and me around that table; and she and I are going to push for my transfer to another department again. There are several possibilities, and I may even end up going to work at our other location, Utrecht, for however long it'll take me to find a job nearer to home.

I went home by way of Schiphol, where I very nearly purchased




until I noticed that they were only silver-plated brass. Darn! I hate being allergic to base metals. Especially now that I've fallen in love with the whole Dyrberg/Kern collection...

Wow, I love those. I, too, am allergic to base metals and so choose to accessorize with shoes and hats. (I am also allergic to silver, much to my displeasure b/c I love the way it looks and end up buying all kinds of prettys for my sister who can wear it.)

Oh, and glad your talk went well with the therapist.

Aren't they pretty? I'm consoling myself with the thought that if I had bought them, I probably would have lost one of them before the week was out (I'm always losing earrings).

The ancient Egyptians prized silver more than gold, did you know? Probably because it wasn't found in their territories.

No, I didn't know, but it makes sense. I prize gold more than silver b/c I can wear it, and platinum most of all b/c it looks like silve and I can wear it. (And those are the only two metals I have ever been able to wear, so my jewelry collection is rather small.)

I like platinum for the same reason; but I guess I'm luckier than you in that I can wear certain kinds of silver (the silver content has to be really high, though -- unfortunately, it's never very strong). Also, I like white gold better than yellow, and electrum better than white gold!

You could always make a necklace out of them.

Yes, I could, couldn't I? Wonder where I left them...

I actually do that a lot.
