First, a reminder to be grateful. When I came into work Saturday, found out I couldn't drink the water in the building because of a water main break a few blocks away. So had to hit up the pop machine on my floor for the first time in a few years. I e-mailed a coworker to let her know to bring water/ice on Monday, but then on Sunday I read online that the water had tested clean...so I didn't bring anything, only to find out when I got to work that they wanted to spend a day flushing the pipes! Should have followed my own advice, heh. It was another parched day with another visit to the pop machine at lunch for a little liquid. So it's wonderful to be back to normal now, and fill up my water bottle whenever I want to.
Secondly, today was the long-awaited and anticipated day of the All-Company Meeting and the PSP announcment. The turnout was huge because of the anticipation, and the theme was a hilarious riff on the old Star Trek episodes, as performed by company associates. Best of all, the big news. PSP FOR 2013 IS 10%, THE HIGHEST POSSIBLE, HURRAH AND HALLELUJAH!!! I was hoping for 9.5% after last year's 9%, so it was quite a delight! (2005 - 8%, 2006 - 9%, 2007 - 8.5%, 2008 - 9.5%, 2009 - 5.5%, 2010 - 5.5%, 2011 - 7.5%, 2012 - 9%). And to add to the joy, I'll get to see what's left of it after taxes and the retirement plan 50% on my next paycheck, February 22nd!
