#5357: Yet more short shrift.

Today we found out that the convenience of being able to pick when you did your overtime is being taken away, effective Saturday. We had to select: will we work an hour early, or an hour late?

Since working early would mean getting up at 6 AM (instead of 7) on weekends, after getting home at 11 PM, I selected "late"...which still means losing another hour of sleep Friday night into Saturday morning, because now I'll get home an hour later and still have to get up at 7 AM. If I am lucky it means getting six hours of sleep, as opposed to seven hours if I am lucky tonight. Which ain't gonna happen because it's already after midnight.

The only upside to all this--the only positive point!--is that on weekdays I'll be able to get up at 11:30 AM rather than 10:30 AM. It is not worth it.

Ideally, my schedule would return to 1:30-10 PM Thu-Mon, with no stupid overtime or schedule flopping for weekend days, but it's not the way to bet. According to what came down today, this horseshit will continue at least through the end of the year.

I really need to find a new job.

Who the fuck would want oral sex from Madonna in 2016? Madonna was almost hot in the 1980s, in a "holy shit what a frickin' whore" kind of way, but now she's an old bag. The idea of Madonna--any body part of hers, let alone her mouth--coming in contact with my "big unit" makes me cringe in horror. (It would have in 1986, too, because blech.)

Democrats consistently oppose voter ID laws because the Democrat party is the one which benifits from vote fraud.

Mars lander landed, but rather faster than hoped. Made a divot visible from space, even. *sigh*

Today, on my way to work, I had some interesting ideas, and then spent the rest of the commute lamenting the fact that I have to go to this stupid job to pay my bills, when I'd really like it if I could write and pay my bills that way. Argh etc.

  • #7749: No, it didn't happen

    I did not fire up the grill and make burgers. I slept like a stone, and when I got up, we went to the laundromat, and then to Culver's. Oh well. *…

  • #7748: Decidedly warm outside, old boy

    Hit Jewel to get some sundries, including supplies for dinner. Gonna fire up the grill and make burgers, and if I'm feeling particularly plucky I…

  • #7747: Ahh, yes! This is what I needed!

    Work today featured me schlepping PCs across the warehouse at the near off-site. Back was feeling dandy this morning; by quitting time, not so much.…
