Finally got the paperwork for the promotion. It took about two months longer than everyone said it would. The only thing left now is to see if the powers-that-be make good on their promise of getting me out of a cubicle and into an actual office.
The cool thing about an actual office, of course, would be that I could arrange my work space so the monitor screen wasn't visible to passers-by. . . .because I am the Sudoku Queen. I could sit facing the door and no one would ever sneak up on me again.
