That has been her FB handle for over a decade, and the name has deeper roots here on the Watch. Use her signature and avatar as clues.

She has been known by many names on the intertubes. While some names no longer represent her so well, Illume is one she still Manifests.

On Facebook I started with my real name, as I believe at the time FB's TOS required it. But, it became apparent from other users I knew that real names were not enforced, so I switched. Illume Eltanin was a name for one of my characters in Gravin Threndor, but it was the first role playing name I totally created on my own for my own character, not a follower. The others were all based on legends or creatures of myth. So, I chose it for my FB persona once I felt FB would allow it.

Other than Menolly here and Illume Eltanin on FB and Twitter, I mostly post on online forums as Gator Pam, due to my long time residency in Gator Town (Gainesville, FL) and my loyalty to the University of Florida Gators.

Thinking I might need to get a second job to pay for cat surgery and whatnot. Really don't want a second job, but I hate being in debt and it's already cost double what I figured as the worst-case-scenario and will go up a few thousand more if she needs chemo.

Sorus, that is terrible... having known a couple of hoomans who went through drastic chemo, the question has to be asked about how worth it it's going to be for kitteh. I watched people I love go through terrible pain and sickness for months... in my Mom's case it was totally worth it, but that was mainly because she was determined to be positive and put on a wig and some lipstick and go do fun stuff and it was her goal not to let on to anyone how crappy her body felt. Cats don't necessarily have that rational choice available to them. It's never easy making decisions for her, and I've had to make them and it sucks because they can't tell you what they would do. May you have wisdom to do what you feel best about. *sniffle*

I realized how long it's been since I darkened the door at the Watch. The weeks have whizzed by. I had my trip to America to get cut open and found out that I am cancer-free, which was really amazing. I have TWO student teachers currently in the classroom, so right now I'm in that sweet spot where they are doing pretty much all the work and I can breathe.

Congratulations Menolly on adding to your IP collection! Very Happy I'd love to get used to one, but until Nigeria has electricity on a schedule (asking for constant electricity is way too ambitious) I can't rely on any small appliances. Good think I like cooking with gas.

That is awesome. Congrats.

Pet chemo is actually not as ghastly as human chemo. And fingers crossed that she won't need it. She had her spleen removed earlier this week, and we're waiting on tests to see if it spread to her liver. I feel like we caught it early - thanks to the vet doing tests on a couple of random lumps - had really hoped they were benign because she wasn't acting sick at all, but unfortunately they turned out to be more ominous.

I think her overall quality of life is pretty good right now, and if I can prolong that - even at the cost of a couple of bad days - it seems worthwhile. If it gets to the point where she is suffering, I will make the call.

Standing desk. Get an adjustable one so you have the option of sitting when you want.

This has been a long week. In addition to cat stuff, I just found out that my main coworker's 'week' off is actually three weeks off. Which means he's had five weeks off this year. Not that I'm keeping score or anything, but I have had zero. I was given next Friday off, but had to give it up because my boss had thought other coworker would be back before then. A 4-day weekend would have been nice, but I didn't have my hopes up for it - something always goes wrong.

I need a new job.

Never apologise for venting. Dude thats actually pretty shit. It annoys me that you dont get leave entitlements when others seem to.

Your employers dont sound like good employers that reward loyalty and personal investment to delivering necessary outcomes.

I kinda want to pushback for you. 🤬

Part of my problem is that I don't push hard enough. But that's because I know I'd come back to a disaster.

It's annoying this time around because we generally aren't allowed any time off at this time of year, but my coworker got someone who was quitting to approve three freakin' weeks. And nobody seemed to notice even though there's a freakin' calendar. It's mind-boggling sometimes. Not to mention the sort of sneaky that I'd never be able to get away with. The reward for working hard is more work.

Its always the way. Some workplaces are good and they take care of their workers and see them as the critical assets they are.

Its ironic really as most businesses take care of their physical equipment cos they need it to deliver and to last .. yet have no similar regard for staff.

Mine was more of a sympathetic "we've noticed". Vent away. This forum was made for it. Don't worry about bogging us down. I skim really long posts. (Not just you. <i>Any</i> really long posts.)
