Well, the Anthem/Wellpoint merger finally happened late Tuesday (11/30). Walked into work Wednesday to find Wellpoint pages where the Anthem pages used to be on our intranet… that’s how most of us found out. I expect my workload to finally diversify a bit.
Right now, there’s a work crew outside my apartment preparing to dig up my block to fix the broken water main that’s left 1/4″ of water on the street. Fortunately, (1) I’m home and (2) I was given a chance to move my car beyond the break so I can leave here in a few minutes for lunch. This was a scheduled day off, no less… and I get to spend it sick. Yeah, the cold came back. Whoopty-bleep.
Other stuff — seems to be a weekend for me NOT to be doing what I want… I’m off voice tonight at the Alley (not because I’m sick, but because we’re really shorthanded, I have to cover box office)… and I’m off my Sunday show at Oldies (get this — because I do the damn basketball games so well that they need me to give up 6 hours on the air to do 2 1/2 hours of engineering. That sucks.). At least I get my “nobody’s listening” Saturday morning show tomorrow. Whoopty-bleep.
I need to shake things up… but I don’t think I can afford to.
