Meredith who?  
And once again, she surfaces from the abysmal morass of that terror known as real life and hopes, mayhap in vain, that people still remember her.

... Okay, so that was a little melodramatic. But not by much. Either that, or I'm letting the drama running rampant in my work life color my vision. *flips on some rose-tinted glasses* Ah, there we are. *waves* Here I am! Still alive and sort of kicking. The biggest block lately has been the sudden reemergence of my migraine problem. I swear it comes in cycles-- I'll be okay for a few years, and then they come back with a vengeance. I had one that sent me to the ER, so my doctor has me back on proscription meds for the pain. I'm hoping to get her to lower the dosage, since the stuff makes me feel really lethargic and out of it. *sigh* But I'm feeling a lot better than I have in weeks, regardless of the impression I'm swimming through molasses.

The only other news that's kept me away from my beloved 'net has been work drama-- some nasty third party with a personal agenda accused me of 'sexually harassing' a male friend of mine at work. He had no complaints against me, and even knew about my orientation, but this third party felt that the one time I tossed him a pen and winked was filled with sexual intent. The whole matter's been cleared up, with apologies from my managers ect, but it basically forced me to come out to my entire department in the middle of a training meeting. And that, as I pointed out to the 'minority advocate', can't be undone, no matter how many apologies I'm given.

... yeah. So, so glad to have all of that over with. I just couldn't get online and spill my guts while it was going on-- I was feeling pretty bleak about it. Please forgive me for not being around.

I want to know what's going on with you guys! Comment and update me, please!

*hugs and love*

I remember you. :D
And I remember you! ^_^ How *are* you?

I'm feeling mild violent impulses toward that un-named third party
Tell me about it. The official line is that this supervisor has been 'spoken to' about using loaded terms like 'sexual harrassment', but... if she's made it to supervisor, she should know better already. Which is what I said to *my* manager. Especially considering the fact the guy and I are friends outside of work. When this was explained-- by both of us, in separate instances-- the response from higher up was that they 'didn't know'. So, I guess I have to give my boss an official list of people I associate with outside of work? *shrugs*

Drama. -_-;

But it was wonderful to hear from you! Are you still in Germany?

I didn't even know someone could accuse a person on another's behalf - I mean if the other person had no problem with whatever it was you'd think all would be fine. Really sucks they were so malicious as to do that. *hugs*

I had no idea either! Apparently she felt 'threatened' by the interaction between the two of us, even though it had nothing to do with her. I told the minority rep that, by that logic, I could be brought up on charges again if someone found it disturbing to work with a lesbian. They didn't have an answer for that one.

Don't you just love people? *raises eyebrow*

*hugs* Your support is so very much appreciated, though!
