So I went and asked for work. Well, what I actually did was ask if my boss knew anything about the status of the project, and she hadn't heard anything since last week. So she fired off a request for a status report, and I got to talk to a sub-boss (or, in video-game speak, maybe a "level boss") and get some work to do. Page reference stuff, which is fine. Easy, mindless. Better than twiddling my thumbs. Plus, hey, it's me asking for work again before having to be asked, which is probably only helping my reputation.
