Hullo there, LJ!

Wow! What a drought of posts! I'm really slipping! *lol* LJ is life!

I have been in training all week at work so there hasn't been a lot of time for LJ. It really ticks me off that one of my other duties (that I hate!) deals with contracts. In order to be a contracting official one has to take a week-long refresher every 2 years. To me this is ridiculous! One whole week shot to hell for a job that really isn't my main job. *grumps* Oh well. It's over and now I can get back to the important LJ!

I can't complain about my job too much, however. How many other jobs will actually BUY YOU A FURSUIT?!? That's right, kiddies! The good ol' USBR will be buying me an otter suit to do gigs as the official mascot. *dances* An issue cropped up as to what the "official" mascot should look like since there are a couple of versions floating around. It was decided it was better to ask forgiveness instead of permission. Once the suit arrives and I do a couple of gigs (like a children's' water festival next month) I'll make a pitch to find out just who in the organization is the official Otto person. Is it a public affairs person in DC? If no one knows, I'll make a pitch to become THE mascot coordinator for the bureau. I want to make Otto as well known as Smokey or Woodsy.

And that's about it for now. I had a very interesting natural history post to make, but I think I'll save that for another day.
