Need funnies, got ICHS

Ok, I’m grumpy enough. Time for a funny. When in need, go to I Can Has Cheeseburger.

This one struck my fancy tonight. I always was a fan of Bugs Bunny taking that left toin at Albakoicky.

I has a tunnil / Which way to Albakirkie?


Work is being a pain.

I got the word yesterday. We’re going to be re-doing the salary schedules, since the state post-secondary board is revising the salary schedules. This is for the 2008 fiscal year. Which starts September 1, 2007. The state post-secondary board is making sure the raises that the legislature authorized are actually 7% across the board. In the past, the state post-secondary board played with the salary schedule numbers to make sure that the different grades and steps stayed basically in line and not too far apart. But that resulted in wonky numbers for some grades and steps that didn’t actually equal the percentage raises that the legislature had authorized. Oops. As I found out the year before last. So now the 12 salary schedules with 48 grades and 1248 steps that payroll entered last week are invalid.

I’m a cranky geekgirl tonight. This affects contracts and lots of stuff. Timing is everything. These salary schedules are published the beginning of June. Its a week into August, and three weeks from taking effect. The weather is affecting everyone’s brains. What brains they claim to have, at any rate.

Moar brainzzzzzz!

Music rant

I sing in the choir at church. Our regular practice was tonight. When I got to practice this evening, there were folks there who aren’t singing in the choir.

Let me back up a week. Last week when I went to practice there was a gentleman there who is getting married in a couple of weeks who came in and took over our practice with preparation for his wedding. While he was there, he invited all the choir members to come and sing at his wedding with other folks for chorale music. This week, actually today, he called the lady who is organizing us and basically invited the entire chorale there to practice for his wedding. So we spent the majority of our practice time on his wedding music. First, I’m not impressed with the person that he has organizing and leading his music. I’ve heard his work before and it leaves me cold. Second, its our practice time for what we are working on for church. If he wanted to organize it after our regular practices, that would be different. We don’t exist just for his wedding. I’m probably going to be working elsewhere that day. Auuggggh!
