Karma’s a B**ch

Let me preface this my saying that my work has been really short staffed the past month or so because they fired a bunch of people for bull shit reasons (always seems to happen this time of year).  So now, those of us left have been worked into the ground and are therefore all sick, leaving them with no one to work.  But this is not the point of this post.

This weekend is the weekend before Valentine’s day (a holiday which has no significance for me ever, but does for a lot of my coworkers).  Apparently, people have a lot of plans in the next few days, but are hindered by having to work.  I woke up this morning feeling bad that a coworker called me in desperation to work for them tonight because their girlfriend surprised them by coming into town from up north.  I even considered missing my friend’s birthday party (which they are counting on me to bring part of the dinner for) because I love a good love story and I felt bad.

Then I realized that I don’t have enough hours (God forbid we get overtime) to work for any of these people.  And why is that?  Because none of them would work the other night when I begged people to so that I wouldn’t be stuck working almost 30 hours in two days.  I am sick and hitting overtime.  So now I feel less bad.  Karma’s a b**ch!

P.S.  Pretty sure Karma for this post will come back to kick me in the arse fairly soon!

Too Many Holidays!!!

Every year my birthday falls halfway between Christmas and New Year’s.  Those of you with Christmas birthdays know how sucky this is.  This year, Hanukkah happens to end at sundown on my birthday.  Does this mean I can blow out my hanukiah candles and make a wish???  Is it more likely to come true (cuz I could use all the help I can get!)

P.S. I know you’re supposed to let the candles burn out, this was just a funny musing I had in my head when I realized the dates of events this season!

Birthday Conversations

One of my friends has a blog that is made up of email conversations between her and her friend/roomate.  I was reading it the other day and started laughing because I have a friend that I share similarly hilarious long messages with.  The best is when you can be witty and humorous about anything in your life.  I loved the idea of this blog (I suppose it’s somewhat like the text version of a reality show) so I thought I’d test it out with a post.  The only back story behind this is that all of these messages took place on my birthday, the quotes are funny enough to need no explanation and no explanation will keep them from being incriminating.

-“I just wanna hang out in the pub and be like ‘its my bday!'”
– ” ‘…bow to me!!'”

– “you didn’t use him; you gave him a treat!”
-“Like a puppy!”
-“Now what are you going to train him to do?? …try to use your powers only for good.”

“The photo lady was tryin to get pix and I was like ‘nah’ so she was like ‘how about w him’? So I took a pic w some cute young photo guy named pierre. I was like ‘are you pimping your people out?’ she said she needed to get more tall young men working.”

“we don’t need tbs, real life is filled with ‘characters’!”

“Hope potter soaked your rocks. Or rocked your socks…thanks a bundle, predicive text”

“I only got cheek kisses from the giraffes this time.”

A Day in the Life of, well, Me.

The holidays are always a crazy time for everyone.  I, personally, am booked solid into the new year.  Wonder what it’s like? Choose any of numerous cliches- “Burning the candle from both ends”, “No rest for the wicked”, etc.  Honestly, I’m starting to wonder if I just have too many friends.  Too many friends you ask? Can that be possible? Well let’s start with yesterday and you can see what I mean….

tuesday- work in the morning- early afternoon, some Christmas shopping, out to the bars for my friend’s birthday til 3 am

wednesday- up after five hours of sleep, work 14 hours, come home and write this blog before finally crashing

thursday- another all day double

friday- Disney world for the first time in four years all day, christmas/friend’s birthday party number 1

saturday- make brownines for one party, friend’s graduation party an hour south, friend’s bridal shower an hour north, friend’s festivus party back in town,  another friend’s holiday/birthday party

sunday- one friends birthday celebration at busch gardens, work til close, another friends’ holiday party

monday- work a double, then over the bridge for movies and frozen chocolate bananas with a friend from out of town

and then comes going home for christmas, trying to celebrate my quarter-of-a-century birthday (curse my inconvenient birth!), and working doubles every other day including new years eve and new years day!

And somewhere in there I have to do laundry, walk my dog a bagillion times a day, eat, maybe sleep, and possibly shower.  But yeah, I do it to myself.  At least i can’t say my life is boring!
