All Quiet on the North Eastern Front!

Work is quiet today.  A large gang went off for some MT thing, while the rest of us schmoes are busy finishing up end of year projects. 

This is the calm before the storm, or what is probably more accurate, the eye. 

Things have been heating up since the last round of promotions; two senior positions were delayed for six months.  This has caused some of those who believe a position is due to them to completely lose their shit.  Tuesday night was ugly, a dinner held by the head of our division.  I won't go into the details right now, suffice to say his kibun is far from good, and no attempts to help him correct his kibun worked, as he didn't want it corrected.  But I digress.

Last night I got an email from a major client in Singapore; they've agreed to go full on for one of our proposals from last October, while they are still noncommittal on the second. 

Getting the first was the most important and I'm feeling pretty damn good about it, but of course a tour de force with a full go on everything would be most awesome.

I had started to get worried since here it is the second week of December.  That email means a massive load taken off my back in a sense, since the head honchos were beginning to question why we hadn't heard anything yet.  This will mean a ton more work in the next few weeks, but that is why they pay me.

Time for coffee.
