*raises hand in air and waves feebly to flist*

Just wanted to let you know I'm still alive and around, and should be able to start posting again later this week after (1) my annual data submission to the Federal Reserve gets sent off (tomorrow), and (2) the banking regulators who are currently finishing up their CRA examination of the bank stop calling / e-mailing me with questions about our branch locations.  Seriously, they should know by now that if the information they received from me at the start of the exam doesn't agree with the information maintained by another government agency (in this case the FDIC), they should use my data and be done with it.  My data is correct.  Yes.  It is.  And I demonstrated it to them this morning, didn't I?  It's just that researching what the FDIC appears to have done (in one case failing to note a branch relocation that took place in 2001, in the other case continuing to show a branch location that's been out of date since the bank we acquired in 2000 acquired, sometime in the late 90s, the bank that had its office there) took time that I could have spent in more productive ways.   

*feels better after venting*

The other reason I'm posting now is to introduce everyone to my sister, who has finally succmbed to the siren song of LJ and set up a journal of her own.  She's lark_about.

Okay, back to work now.  Ta ta!

*wonders who'll be the first to identify the source of my goodbye*

Coucou Karen! *kisses*

It's so nice seeing an update from you here, you've been sorely missed :-) I'm glad to hear work should give you a break soon *hugs*

Also, I wanted to go and welcome your sister to the wonderful world of lj but she hasn't written an entry yet so I couldn't do it. I hope she'll enjoy having her own journal *g*

Hi Mouse!

I've been reading your posts, as always, but I don't watch Supernatural and so haven't had much to say. Are you still watching Lost, or did you give up on it?

Ah, work. I remember how that was... hopefully, I'll get to be able to complain about it a lot once the fall term starts! *keeping fingers crossed* But anyway, I'm sorry you're being so busy. It's always nice to see you post and it certainly doesn't happen often enough! Too much work sucks. :-(

And ooo, your sister's on lj? *adds her to flist*

If you go and look, I don't even think we've managed to update worldaffairs in about three weeks. :-(

How's your brother?

I will take your word for it, you know I don't go there. :-)

And my bro's better. I talked to him on the phone today and he said the pain was fading a bit everyday, but he wasn't sounding all that cheerful either, poor thing. I'm pampering on Thursday and Friday, maybe taking him to see a movie if he's feeling up to it.
