Current Location: the office
Current Mood: grumpy grumpy

I got paged awake a couple of times today by my coworkers (for whom it was still Friday) - not an auspicious start to the day. Finally got off my ass around 2pm to start walking around the neighborhood - thus cuing the NOC to page me about stuff. Could have just gone home and tried to work from there - but at that point, I figured more heavy-duty pootery might be in order, and thus just headed to the office. This has kinda sapped any desire to go out and about this evening, especially as most things seem to close up around 8pm.

I've realized that I need to nest in a big, bad way - both at home and at work - and for the work thing, at least, it just ain't happening yet. I may move down to the other office, I may have to work from home, or something else entirely unexpected could pop up. This state of "uncertainty will be milling about for the next week or so, and I'm completely unable to do anything to affect it" ain't doing my stress levels any good - nor is the fact that I have to use my personal laptop as a workstation, so I have to hunch over in order to work.

Having worked for a good buncha hours today (not to mention being paged awake), I think I'm gonna play hooky on Monday - which is Sunday in the US, anyhow, so few people would notice anyway. Haven't really gotten to play tourist at all yet, either. (Who knows, maybe I'll even convince Softbank that they should sell me a phone.)

Culture shock does subside eventually I guess..
But yeah, I love a cubbyhole to work in
I wonder if that's "not the Japanese way"?

The problem with thing is because the local office is terribly disorganized right now, with big changes afoot; they're not sure where they are gonna be in a week or two.
