God giveth...and he taketh away.
Current Mood: irritated irritated
So. Today I wake up. Not an unusual occurrence, all in of itself. I roll over thinking it's a bit dark...look at clock. It's 6:30. Hrm. That's weird I think to myself. It can't be 6:30 in the morning because I was still up at that point. So unless I missed a day...FUCK. I'm late for work. Either I turned off my alarm and went back to sleep without waking up, or I never turned it on (it was set for the right time). No time to loose I dash to put on clothes, splash water in my face, grab my lunch and rush to work.

I'm an hour and a half late when I get here. Rush to clock in, check the email, etc...realize can't login to the critical business application we use. Send out an email to the helpdesk pager. Then with that done I'm 'waiting' finally, so I go to take my orange juice and lunch into the fridge, switch out the chair at the desk I use with the chair at what is technically 'my' desk...and see a note.

Jeff: Phoenix down all evening.

You know what that means? I'm going to sit here for my entire shift with nothing to do but maybe the occasional railroad BOL that might come across. Right after I see this note, they (IT) call me back and inform me in what was surprisingly technically detailed just why I can't log in and won't be able to until tomorrow if all goes well. They also asked if we talk to each other cause they -told- the day shift girl...but no email. :P

And even -worse- I'll still take an occurrence I bet from being late, even tho it means nothing in terms of workload. And since I treasure my PTO, I don't know that I want to burn it to make up the difference.

BLARGH EAT KITTY.

WTB a shower and some company.

P.S. I shouldn't have slept anyways. From the various personal emails I received the day would have been much better spent awake. I could have just slept at work. :P

If I was the nicest person in the world I'd return your e-mail so you had something to do.

As it is, I'm debating walking down to the video store to pick up Crash, but it's damn cold out there and I don't think I should go before I call and ask if'n they even have a copy available.

Chances of an e-mail tonight? High!

*if I were, rather.

Stupid fingers. Stupid cold.

Sounds like a weather front in the digital realm.

Chance of email tonight? High, with possibilities of some irrelevance and hilarity.

Snow crash, baby.

So much for the afterglow.

FIRE IN THE HOLE!

Speaking of, Black Adder IV is really, really good for some fire in the hole action.

Also, Hugh. Mmm, Hugh.

I have it. Come visit me. I'm bored.

Me too! But I'm stuck at work. :)

My weekend is stretching out blank before me.

But, ugh, long drive.

you should have slept. Otherwise, you'd have just ended up falling asleep on your keyboard and then you'd have the imprints on your face for the next couple of days. And can you imagine how horrible that would be if you fell on the stapler????
daimones From: daimones Date: February 19th, 2006 09:32 am (UTC) (Link)
Nobody would have seen it anyway.

I'd begun to think you were avoiding me again. :)
tangled_rhythms From: tangled_rhythms Date: February 19th, 2006 04:26 pm (UTC) (Link)
I can understand why you'd think so from my not being around over the past several weeks. I wasn't avoiding you, there's just been a shift in my perspective regarding several issues and it's had an affect on my life.

I know that sounds cryptic, but this is a public forum and I don't want to talk about it here. I'll either catch you later online as I'm working from home or I'll actually post about it later today with a protected entry.

And why didn't you say something if you thought I was avoiding you? It's not like you to be so quiet in such matters when it comes to me. Perhaps you've done some shifting of your own?
