One of Those Weeks

It's been a hell of a couple of days lately- I had to work Friday afternoon until midnight, then work Saturday from 10AM to 7PM, then worked from midnight to 8AM then 4PM to 8PM Sunday, and finally returned for Monday's midnight to 8AM shift (the guy who was supposed to work it had a family medical emergency). Oddly enough, with a few minutes to go, I'm not dragging my ass.

Later, however, I'll probably be knackered... I'm supposed to meet a friend of mine in the late morning and take a trip to, of all places, two of my worksites (she has the day off, and wants to get out of Manhattan). It'll be weird seeing the people I said goodbye to a few scant hours earlier.

I think Warren Zevon wrote the perfect sountrack for the last couple of days:





I'm not gonna complain, these past two days have been good practice for October, when the fun really begins.

Being knackered means you just need some tea and strumpets to perk you up.

What's the recipe for strumpets again? I can never remember.

Also, I've said it before and I'll say it again: with your schedule it's a damn good thing you like your job.

LOL@ Vacuumslayer.. strumpets. Hehe..

What the hell kind of a friend takes you back to your job when you just got off? I'd change those plans if I were you.

I hope you were able to get some sleep before you met her!

*Grumble, grumble...*

I suppose you're screwed out of overtime now that you're an overseer.

For me, it's been no sleep since Brooklyn.

Being knackered means you just need some tea and strumpets to perk you up.

That's the idea.

Yeah, I'm lucky that way.

What the hell kind of a friend takes you back to your job when you just got off? I'd change those plans if I were you.

The sort of friend who'd want to visit a place like the one I work in.

Nah, we'll just juggle the schedule- I don't have to go back in until Thursday. It's not normally so bad, but two guys took off before October crunch time when the third guy had a family emergency. It was an odd weekend.

No sleep at all!!

The Dream Machine sure ain't silver.
