Less than 4 days

Monday, August 4th, 2008

I’ve got less than four days till I leave Hong Kong.  There’s way too much stress and way too many things not going smoothly at all.  Things are going the opposite of smoothly.  They are anti-smooth.  This is one of those cases where having lots of money would fix things.  Thus the stress.

The training of my replacement is going well but his arrival delays have introduced even more stress to the situation.  I feel like I’m talking non-stop and gushing information but I’m worried how much he’s absorbing.  So far, he’s still not getting the names in the office right.  I hope he’s only bad with remembering names.  Otherwise it could be a long couple of years.

Regardless, I’m still plugging along.  I’m trying to get a buffer of comics done for A Little Scary so I can stay on schedule during the move.  The Monday comic is up and Thursday’s is ready to roll but I need to create at least one more to make it through the move.

My replacement has been here in Hong Kong for a few days now.  The training is going along swimmingly I suppose.  There’s a lot to cover.  I don’t think I’ve talked this much…  well… ever.

Some of the things I tell him he already knows.  I think some of the things come as genuine surprises.  It’s not an easy job.  Usually.

Met with him in Wan Chai for a few beers tonight on my way home.  Now it’s late and I have a headache.  More to do tomorrow.

Medicine and sleep.
