After a VERY busy Friday, Saturday, Sunday shift due to tornados and hurricanes, I was blissfully enjoying my time off until Friday again.
Then my home phone rings. It’s work. I don’t answer. Then my cell phone rings. Same. THEN my work cell rings. Now I’m concerned…
Like a fool, I listen to the message. The girl working the 7pm-7am shift tonight is sick and due to already present evening/weekend shifts and vacations I’m the ONLY person on a 14 person team who can work it. I’m the scheduler… I realize this is true.
sigh.. pick up the phone, call the boss… now i’m working tonight :( wish I’d slept in this morning!!
Waiting for the phone to ring… my youngest is on the other side of the country right now on a 10 day canoe trip. Just found out there’s been tornados in the area today and severe storms expected for the next few days. Hope he calls soon :(
I will never understand how the world keeps giving mass murders compassion. Maybe it makes them better than me, but I have no compassion for this man. He should suffer his last moments in a cell where he belongs.
Do you remember when you were a kid, playing Nintendo and it wouldn’t work? You take the cartridge out, blow in it and that would magically fix the problem. Every kid in America did that, but how did we all know how to fix the problem? There was no internet or message boards or FAQ’s. We just figured it out. Today’s kids are soft.
ROFL - this gave me an early morning smile.
That “blow in it” technique worked on my very first CD rom drive also for a long time before it fried… and I have my Engineering Degree. It’s the magic of the quick puff of air…
1:30am and some little drunken shit on a skateboard just came to the door looking for “Mike”. When I said, quite grumpily, “you’ve got the wrong house” did he say sorry and leave? Nope. Stood there asking questions. Do you know Mike? Do you know where he might live? Have you seen a house with a party?
ARGH. It’s 1freaking30 in the morning. Go away. idiot.
I sent my husband a text asking him to pick up garlic bread on the way home. He should have been home ages ago so I sent a text to ask what was keeping him. He couldn’t find gaelic bread and was still looking. Screw you, T9.
It’s so cold in my house this morning I had to turn on the heat. AUGUST. I awoke to it 15C (59F), walked around shivering for a few minutes and then gave in and turned on the heat. What a crappy start to a Saturday!
I’m from upstate NY. If I could change where I was brought up country wise I’d still have to say the United States. Although we are spoiled and don’t appreciate how much we really have compared to anyone else I’ve learned nothing too good of any other country besides Canada, so if I had to choose it’d be Canada.
I was brought up in Canada. My dad was in the military so we moved around a LOT. I was born in Halifax moved to Saint John, Victoria, Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Ottawa, Montreal, Ottawa, Calgary. I loved that life growing up and know my own country much better than many of those around me.
What country would I choose other than Candada? hmm… The States is so similar, we go there often and I like it because it has a lot of really warm regions ;) I always thought living in Great Britan would be neat, but really don’t know enough about lives there to pick it. So, if not Canada, then the United States. How about San Deigo? (my sister lives there! she could put me up!!)
