Tonight was matronsinafay company xmas party. Got to meet a lot of the people that she had been talking about since she started the job. Lots of drunken antics from all kinds of strangers. Was interesting and oddly enough more fun then i was expecting. Here’s to wishing I got to be one fo the drunk ones.
Spoke with a friend who was in a bad mood tonight… and another one who was in a bad mood earlier today… tried to help both of them, and right now it feels like I failed entirely. Seems that a lot of people having issues as winter sets in. Car, job, love life, whatever… all three. Personally, for me its two out of three. *starts singing two out of three aint bad*. My car is having major issues again, and isnt safe to drive. And once the PMPC gig is up, I’m back to part time crap again.
Someone just needs to get me a winning powerball ticket for xmas so that I can stop feeling to guilty when i cant help people out financially. Any takers?
Anyway, its almost 2:30am, I think that I am gonna head ot Denny’s for a tall icy cold Neil Tea, and hopefully the chance to work on my book some more. It doesn’t sound like any of the people that I want to see are actually going to be there. Hopefully, it won’t be busy and i can just sit in a corner and keep to myself. On second thought maybe I will just go up stairs and try out the couch for a while. With everyone else in the house asleep it sounds rather conducive to what i have in mind. Yeah that sounds like a good (and cheaper) alternative.
So I get to work last night, and pretty much the first thing anyone says to me… “Someone died tonight outside”
So yes someone did indeed die last night at work. I shouldnt really go into specifics, but he was 57 had several heart attacks in his past, a triple bypass surgery not too long ago, and smoked a pack a day. He was a nice guy. Or so people keep telling me. There was a rumor circulating that the defib batteries were dead. Its not true. Friend of mine was the first on the scene from the response team.
Someone else apparently bled all over the bathroom, Haven’t heard the why or how yet. Don’t think I want to know. Death in the work place is enough with out worrying about a little bleeding i guess.
Denny’s afterwords with ladyariadne and bluntpeircing. Was fun. Hope we can do that again some time soon. It was very amusing when they realized that they knew each other.
Home, then 8 hours of sleep, and here I am minor headache coming on, and really not wanting to go back into work tonight. Oh well xmas presents won’t buy themselves. It will be another late night Denny’s night, since it doesnt appear I will have the chance to do them too often after the 1st.
For anyone who knows about it, I’ve been working on my Book again. I actually found someone thats good at grammar who is editing it for me. With some luck and such maybe, just maybe I’ll have it all in the computer next year some time. Still not exactly sure how it’s going to end. But the forces are at work, and things are coming to a convergence.
I need to get a wearable computer so that I can do other things while at work. Would definitely need to have a head set, and a sub-vocalization mic so that I could work on ANY else other then going brain dead.
Only 7 days left, and only 4 of them actual work days.
Yesterday was kinda neat…
Went to the Mall to do some xmas shopping. Got most of it covered now. Ran into an old friend from jr high/high school Jeff Sawyer. We stood and talked in the middle of the Mall for a while. Ran into Mosh and his sister also. Didnt see the people I usually see working there, but did run into Acacia.
Came home and watched Time Line w/ Matronsinafay. Was pretty good. (Although she complained in her LJ about me keeping her awake. heh.)
Decided to work on my book a little. Got some more written, at this rate only another few years and maybe, just maybe i will get around to finishing it. yeah right… Not likely.
Went to Denny’s hung out with the cook, Mosh, Eli, and ManchesterGirl for a while. She’s gonna edit/proof read the first half of my book for me. Now I just need to work on getting it typed into a computer. Which of course the last time i worked on typing it in seems like so long ago.
p.s. oh btw, happy early bday Wendilady.
