LEGEND

number (time of day)
.. (leaves cubicle)
: (return to cubicle)
= (my approximate lunchtime)
no l after .. or : means that no micromanagement look was administered
l1 (level 1, quick glance, fraction of a second)
l2 (level 2, can identify colors and possible non-work activity, between half second and 1.5 sec)
l3 (level 3, average look, can see more or less what i am doing, lasts for approx 1.5 sec)
l4 (level 4, strong look, can identify what is open and possibly specific details/text if i cant hit "alt/tab" fast enough, lasts more than 2 seconds, but not more than 5 seconds)
l5 (level 5, the highest graded intensity strike. this is sometimes accompanied with a "sa" or worse yet, a "RED". this is a full on stare a hole in the monitor type look, usually while approaching my cubicle. everything on my screen is visible and identified with a level 5)
ABORT (worst possible scenario. RED is a guarantee. all activities aborted, work or non-work related as panic ensues. often the computer monitor is blocked by loose leaf paper or large folders. last resort-monitor turned off and induced vomit is used to distract the mda003.)
RED (code red. all non work windows are closed and worker stands up and leaves the cubicle area)
awol (Absent WithOut Leave. no knowledge of the mda003's whereabouts are known because the mda003 has left the work premises by car)
wp (with purse. wop would indicate without purse. this is critical because wp usually means extended awol)
/ (slashes just indicate breaks in code)
w002 (with 002. agent 002 is the highest ranking agent on site. agents 001, 002, and mda003 are the three founders of the regime. agent 001 has retired and is now a "consultant" for the company. 002 has the most power, but if i were to give 002 the title of 001, he would like it too much)
laird (surfin the web between last two time postings)

Racism often a red herring on issues

Hi, you have a nifty blog here! I will definitely pay another visit to your blog ! I have a dietary fiber supplements site. It very much deals with a good deal that relates to dietary fiber supplements subjects. If you possess the chance, kindly come and check it out.
