Oh, Nothing

This could be one of those posts that reveals the horror of working all but 5 hours of a 48 hour period, and hitting three deadlines spot on with only 3 hours sleep in all that time. Of working 127 hours for two clients/one boss over an 8 day period, only to have my boss pitch a fit because I couldn't manage to be in two places at once, after the fact.

Did that last sentence make any sense to you? Me either. But he's truly pissed.

As am I, since I covered 3 full shifts while only being paid for two of them... and am getting blamed for not being able to cover a 4th shift that noone asked me to cover until I got crap for not having done it. I know I give off the vibe that the space time continuum applies to everyone but me, but even I am not that good.

But that sort of a post would bore even me, and after 8 solid hours of - blissfully - uninterrupted sleep, I've lost interest in the righteous indignation. And truly, at this point I would only be trolling for a couple of "poor yous" from my trusty commenters. And how pathetic is that, really.

So I will just collect the pay and spend the money. And the next time they hit the triple shift mark, I'm cutting them off. Cold turkey. I may even stick my tongue out while doing it.

So in honor of my not jumping through their invisible hoops, here is a list of things I may be doing today. And for those of you who wonder why "working my butt off just so I can get yelled at" is not on the list, you've obviously been skimming. That's the spirit! Good for you!

Things I Will Be Doing Today

- eating leftover chinese food
- watering the plants
- avoiding the sinkful of dirty dishes
- indulging my home-improvement (aka home-decorating-porn) magazine fetish
- getting stomped on by a seven month old lab
- not vacuuming
- ignoring the cell phone
- not getting yelled at
- nothing
- getting purred at by a cat or two
- petting the Shi Tzu, who is back in happy-dancing form (hooray!)


- consuming at least one eclaire, creme brulee, or piece of key lime pie, while ignoring the correct accent marks required in typing the first two. I scoff at your punctuation, foreign languages! And I consume your desserts anyway! I'm a rebel that way.

Poor you! (Somebody had to say it.)

Enjoy that Chinese food and the decadent desserts. You deserve it!

Aw, Calamity Jen! You always spoil me! That caps off my hooky-day quite nicely.

Give Ferris a kiss!
