you know..

..having my new boss exclaim in a meeting that she thinks i'm a (and i'm totally quoting, hehe!) "fantastic" teamleader, and that she wishes she could clone me and have a bunch of teamleading-jennie clones working for the company feels.. pretty cool. :)

(she's not entirely new, she was the boss at the company i'm doing my project for previously, so i've been reporting our progress to her weekly since last september anyway, it's just that she's jumped shipped and joined my company now instead.)

regina spektor last night? INSANELY GOOD. my heart grew three sizes, or something. it was just lovely. please go see her if you ever get a chance. just... lovely lady. :D

and saturday night, i saw the lunar eclipse, and it was really cool. it took forever for that last sliver of moon to disappear, but it was great to watch. i love when sci-fi things happen in real life. hee.

go you at being such a fantastic teamleader! :)

i'd love to see Regina Spektor, but alas, i have no one to see her with. for some bizarre reason david can't stand her voice (but he loves early tori! i don't get it!) and i don't think i know anyone else who likes her.

we watched a lot of the lunar eclipse as well from my in-laws' front door. :)

thank you! although i must admit, i've been slacking off a bit lately, but then, i have a LOT of slacking off to make up for since i spent 6 months barely even taking my paid breaks..

i can't believe david doesn't like regina! :o :o :o she's just so.. good! it sucks when you can't stand a voice, though. i would have gone with you, if i, er, wasn't kinda broke, hahaha. the good thing about regina is that most people will be floored by her live, even if they'd never listen to her otherwise, she's just such a strong performer.

the lunar eclipse was cool - i love "free" sci-fi, haha!

Gosh, my daughter would probably love to work for you! They gave her crap for the way she answers the phone. They didn't like her slight American pronounciation of the Swedish words surrounding her very American name. The rest of the time her Swedish pronounciation is flawless... idiots!

wow, that sounds a bit extreme. heh, i have a scotsman on my team. it's never occured to me to hold it against him as long as he holds clear conversations with people, and does a good job. plus, the team loves that they can ask him for help whenever they need to record an agreement in english and don't feel comfortable doing it. :)

I thought it was extreme, too. Her call coach keeps giving her a hard time about how she says "service". She says that they don't say anything to the Danish lady about her pronouncing Swedish with a Danish accent. They really treat their employees badly. H has a medical need for a desk that is adjustable, since she has difficulty sitting all day. They kept telling her that they would get her one, but gave them to new call coaches instead of her. Someone finally told her that if she had a slip from the doctor, they would have to get one for her. It'll soon be a year since she started there and her new call coach finally found one for her after she told him that part of the reason she is not motivated to take a lot of calls is because of how they treat their employees, citing this problem as one example. No wonder there is such high turnover.

I'm glad that you are a good team leader. I hope that your team appreciates you, too!
