Tuesday! All day!
As you can see by Itzl's concerned look, this group is for us to check in at to let people know we are alive, doing OK, and not affected by such things as heat, blizzards, floods, wild fires, hurricanes, tornadoes, power outages, or other such things that could keep us off DKos. It's also so we can find other Kossacks nearby for in-person checks when other methods of communication fail - a buddy system. Members come here to check in. If you're not here, or anywhere else on DKos, and there are adverse conditions in your area (floods, heatwaves, hurricanes, etc.), we and your buddy are going to check up on you. If you are going to be away from your computer for a day or a week, let us know here. We care!
If you'd like to be part of the Itzl Alert Network, please leave a comment asking to join, or send us a message asking to join. We'd love to have you. The bigger our network, the less likely someone will be stranded all alone.
We have a board meeting today, and some foreign delegation is coming.
Things just never slow down at work!
With any luck, we'll get to turn the lights on in my office. It was so nice to have lights when the election was going on. But they're off again and with the sun shifting more southerly, the light in my office is much dimmer.
I'm seriously thinking about hitting up the thrift stores to find a pole lamp I can use there so I can see my keyboard and the paperwork on my desk. If I buy it and bring it in, they usually won't complain about me using it. As long as it fits in with the stark, acetic decor, that is.
They are very down on color, and lights, and any kind of personalization. Oddly, I am allowed a photo of Itzl on my desk, but not of my children. This is odd because Itzl himself is on my desk and I technically don't need a photo of him.
