That's right. Time for everyone's favorite corporate holiday: Performance Reviews. My department manager is actually really good about them. They're low-stress, informal discussions about the past year, the up-coming year, and anything else on our minds. Couple of nice things happened this review period:
1. My department manager and I are totally on the same page with what to do with me over the next year. He actually suggested to me a number of big suggestions I was going to bring up later in our meeting. So, good news there.
B. I got a raise. Yay me. : )
Third. I got a bonus, too. Double yay me. So, now I have money for when Amanda and I go on our First Annual Hawaiian Getaway Adventure Vacation Extravaganzafest '06.
So, all good stuff. That and I got a free cookie at work today. By the by: strangely one of the occupational hazards of working with Star Wars all the time is that you forget that "cookie" isn't spelled like "Wookiee."
