Yay me!

Had the annual HR review yesterday. My boss Steve had some very complimentary things to say about me, which is always nice. We collaborated on filling out the forms HR send us to justify their existence, but which are also vital because they have to be filed before anyone can get a raise. Speaking of that, we're due to get cost-of-living plus a bit raises in March, but Steve's boss says I'm underpaid compared to Americans in the company, so they're looking at rectifying that, which I wouldn't complain about at all.

Saw Persepolis. It's an adaptation of the graphic novels by Marjane Satrapi about her childhood in Iran first under the Shah, then under the Islamic Revolution. Her parents send her to live in Vienna for a few years, but she decids to return to Iran and attempts to pick up her life there. It's visually wonderful (anyone who thinks 2D animation has had its day need to be dragged to this film) and quite moving, one of the best films of the year. Run out and see it on the big screen while you can, its that good!
