Leaving

We're about to head out of the house to head for the airport for me to go back to Rhode Island. Just thought I'd let you all know!

Ack! I don't want to leave!

I'm Melting... Melting...

It's frelling hot today! I swear it's in the 90's and all humid. Yick! Glad I turned the A/C on this morning when I got up! They opened up the pool at my apartment complex while I was hom on vacation too. I'm going to have to check that out. Maybe on Sunday, I have it off.

I suppose I should buy a swimsuit then if I'm going to test the pool...
Next week I'm stuck doing mornings at work. Not looking forward to that one bit! That'll mean a week of getting up waaaaay to early and not sleeping enough and just being generally out of it. Bleagh! But that means I'm home around 1ish so the entire afternoon could be spent in the pool. That's a pleasant thought at least!

Hmmm, anything else important that I need to tell everybody... I don't think so. I'm just working my way back into the swing of normal life after being on vacation for a week and a half.

A Recommendation

If any of you enjoy sci-fi books even a little. You have to go pick up the first book in the Honor Harrington series by David Weber. I just finished number 7 in the series and can not wait until I can get home where number 8 is waiting for me.

I've really enjoyed all the Honor books, but this one got me especially. By the end of it I was crying. Happy and sad and relieved and heart-broken. All of it. And this was while getting interupted every 5 or 10 minutes by work stuff. (how dare they want me to do my job when I'm reading! )

What the Media Won't Tell You

Iraq is getting better

So why don't we hear about this stuff without digging for it? Because it doesn't get viewers. People don't watch the news or buy a newspaper to hear happy, fuzzy stories. For whatever reason people like to hear about the bad news. So that's what gets published. That's what airs.

And if you see a newscast or a newspaper full of death and destruction every day, you start to think that that's normal. That it happens all the time and everywhere. You forget that good things can happen too.

And they do happen! You just have to look a little harder.

It's Too Early for This!

At work.

At 3:30 in the morning.

I'll be here till 1 in the afternoon.

I'd much rather be in my bed.

But the morning director is on vacation and somehow I've become the designated "morning fill-in director" when he's gone. Yick!

On top of that today we make the transition from numbers to letters on the decks. So lucky me gets to be the first one to direct using letters. And that'll be on only three hours of sleep and very much ready for bed!

*tells self repeatedly*
It's only a week. It's only a week. It's only a week. It's only a week.

I'm Free!!!!!

Just finished my last morning shift for at least a couple weeks. Woot!!!

I'm going to go play in the pool for a little bit right now. But I'll be back. I don't have to get up tomorrow so I can spend today how I want, instead of spending it trying to sleep. Yay! Yipee! WooHoo!

Bwahahahahaha!

This is old, actually happened back in February. But I just stumbled across the link to it and I haven't seen it anywhere I normally frequent so I'm sharing it with all of you!

Apparently a station in Carolina has (or had anyway!) an automated weather related closings notification thing. All you had to do was fill out an on-line form and the automation would send your business closing announcement straight to the crawl along the bottom of the picture. A bunch of college kids figured this out and started messing with it. Needless to say, hilarity ensued. Keep going through the pages, after the first one or two they started doing screen captures and pictures of their televisions. Very funny!

My Brain Hurts

New toys are fun, but the new board is making my head hurt. It's so much more complicated! I spent half an hour tonight trying to figure out how to get it to recall the right still when I called up a certain effect. I did finally figure it out, but it took a good 15-20 minutes of reading the manual.

I get frustrated with the thing and then I don't want to keep trying to figure it out. Even though it's very cool and I need to understand how it works. I want to understand how it works. But getting there is proving to be quite challenging!

In non-work-related news... There's a geocacher meet-up thing on Sunday and I actually have the day off of work! So I'm planning to go. It should be fun to meet some cachers.

I'm thinking about adding yet another sub-domain onto this here site. For geocaching stuff. I'm thinking of maps and pictures and links to caches I've found (and of course caches that have been found by the SunSynergy Productions Team!) Right now it's just running around in my head, but I'm feeling kinda close to actually doing some work on it so something may show up soon-ish to do with that. We'll see.

Oh, the reason I have Sunday off of work? Because I have to do mornings Monday and Tuesday again. Yick! Then Wednesday we have more training on the new board and lucky me managed to pull a double shift that day so that'll be 9am - 11pm. Then Thursday there's more training so that'll be 9am-7pm, and then back to a normal nightside shift on Friday. Wheeeee!!!!!!!!!!! Can you say sleep-deprived? Should be an interesting couple days!

OCD Much?

I just got caught doing one of my little compulsive things at work.

Whenever I use a public bathroom, no matter how many times I've used that particular one, I always have to look up (or sideways or wherever the thing is) and read the little sign that says which bathroom it is. The sports guy just walked past me while I looked and he said "Yep, it's the right one".

Yeah. I'm a dork. I've been doing this since about the first week of school in 6th grade! It was the first year out of elementary school which meant big, intimidating, lots more people, getting lost, all of that. During the first week or two of school I managed to walk into the wrong bathroom! There wasn't anyone in there, but just the knowledge of what I had done (as a new 6th grader!) was horrifying.

That experience has become this weird little compulsive thing that I always have to do. Yep, I'm weird.

At the Movies

On July 23rd work will be renting out an entire movie theatre so that we can all go see Anchorman. How cool is that!?

The first 100 people to sign up (and their guest!) will be able to go. And it's going to be at midnight so everyone can go. Amazing. As of about 8:30 last night there were already upwards of 50 people signed up. So cool!

I'm Off!

I'm just about to leave the house on my way to my very first Geo-Meet! It's looking like there's going to be tons of 'cachers there so it should be a grand time. HeeHee!

On a completely unrelated note... as I sat down to post thing I happened to catch my sparrow pair mating! It lasted all of 30 seconds so I'm feeling pretty lucky to have seen it.

That's it, and I'm on my way!
