On Thursday Yu Lung called in sick. He asked me to make sure the data conversion for sixteen million* records was going to happen. This thing was new to me in every aspect. Betty Lou, who could enlighten me, is away until Wednesday. I recruited some fellow basket weavers to my witlessness and after they said "the, umm, you know..." and "yes" to each other a few times (without revealing to me what it was they both knew) I passed the request on to Layne Beachley. It would be Layne's job to make this thing happen, if only I knew what this thing was, so I hoped she was the proud owner of a clue. Unfortunately Layne is as new to her job as I am to mine and had exactly the same number of clues about this thing as I did. Then we all went home for the long weekend... I have an exciting job.
* Yes, really sixteen million.
