Why ask why? Apple pie! *mmmnnnn*

Somehow, it doesn't feel like I've had my three days off this week.

Oh, wait. Maybe that's because I haven't!!!

What I don't understand is why the schedule is all FUBAR. As far as I know, no one's on vacation, so why do I have to have split days off? And next week.....
Luckily Jeni was willing to switch with me, because I was planning to go down to my grandfather's on Sunday because he's having surgery on Monday, only they fucked up my days off and I would have had to work Monday night. Hmmm. I seem to remember there being a federal law about how the schedule must be posted at least a week in advance. One of these days there's going to be a major FLL lawsuit, and I would so testify for that.

So, after going grocery shopping yesterday, I got home and laid down in the hope that I could get a nap in before I had to go for work. Well, I did kind of drowse for a little while. And sometime during that period, the power went off. I woke up because I realized I couldn't hear the AC, and immediately freaked out because it was completely dark and my alarm clock wasn't working, and I had this horrible thought that I was late to work. So I stagger into the kitchen, cursing and wishing I had put more stuff away 'cause it isn't very fun to trip over a basket of laundry. And of course the phone in the kitchen is cordless, so it didn't work. Then, more cursing and bruises as I went back to my room and dug around in the wonderfull pitch-blackness of my closet until I came up with my old-fashioned phone. THEN back to the kitchen to plug it in and the novel experience of dialing when I couldn't see the keypad, hoping I wouldn't get a wrong number. I called Mom's, and of course their power's just fine. So she tells me what time it is, and then I throw on some shorts and go outside, where I find out that a good half of the complex has no power. Only half, mind you. And the outdoor lighting was working fine. At this point the power's been off for a good three hours, and there's still no sign of any Sierra Pacific truck. Then it was back inside to hunt for my work clothes in the dark, more cursing and some ruffled feathers and x-rated chirping when I run into the bird cage, and then I realize that I have absolutely no idea where I put my car keys. So I stumble over to the phone and call Jeni to let her know that I'll be late, and in hanging up the phone I discover that my keys are on the counter. And as I'm leaving at nine, four hours into it, the damn electricity's still not on. Man, if my groceries go bad because of this, I'm taking it out of next month's rent.

In other news, there's going to be another NJO e-book coming out. Written by the same guy who does DW, and taking place during. Cool, but I didn't buy the last book. I really object to paying that much for something they're going to publish later on, anyway. I mean, they're putting Recovery in the front of the paperback edition of SBS, so I can wait.

At least I have tomorrow off. Anyone want to do something? I know dinner is happenning, but maybe mini-golf or DDR earlier? Call me, and don't be offended if I don't answer 'cause who knows, the power may still be off.

Sad to say, I've allready finished the two books I got on Monday. Sometimes I hate how fast I read. Anyway, they were good books, even if they were extremely fast reads. One of them was Chrestomanci by DW Jones. Fun books, kind of like Harry Potter only it came out way before that. I reccomend it. Has lots of funny parts. The other was called Witch Child, but I can't remember who wrote it off the top of my head. About a Puritan girl in colonial America during the witch hunts. Sort of Witch of Blackbird Pond meets The Crucible. Short, but dark. More of a kids book than the other one, but I liked it enough to consider the sequel. And the opening premise is pretty neat. Now I'm back where I was on Monday. I need to find a new author to latch onto. I've allready caught up to all my favorites, and I hate having to wait for them to write the next one. Anyone out there have any books they can reccomend? I'll loan you mine if you loan me yours. I have more, but that's all I can wrote now, so I'll see some of you (well, a minority) tonight.

For stormyserenity

The Night has a thousand eyes,
And the Day but one;
Yet the light of the bright world dies
With the dying sun.
The mind has a thousand eyes,
And the heart but one;
Yet the light of a whole life dies
When love is done.

-Francis William Bourdillon

It's not supposed to be depressing, but take it however you will... Even though I don't fully understand what you're going through, I do care.
