Gift cards instead of random wrapped items. for the white elephant exchange so less people getting stuck with weak gifts.  Plus I won a new tv as a grand prize drawing.  And of course stuffed with free grub...

On Night..*counts fingers*..nine of my twelve night work week. So brain is more than a little frazzled. But New Comics Day post and December book list and stuff planned. Soon. Or maybe soonish...

Who wants to go into work for me for the next two days? I'll sleep, you work and I'll give you a pair of shiny nickels? Sounds good right? Right?

C'mon, I wanna go back to bed!

As may have been noticed, there was no New Comics Day post last week. Which was due to not getting to the store because of a work thing. And it was a fairly heavy pull that week. As is this week. Like over a dozen titles between the two to go over. So between the size of this stack, the cold I've picked up, tomorrow's holiday and some continuing annoyance from a traffic ticket it will probably be a few days before I get a chance to talk about them...

Had my vacation request for St. Patrick's Day turned down. No Flogging Molly concert this year. Instead I get to deal with drunk Spring Training attendees. Joy...

I thought about trying to do something productive. But then I remembered that I left work only up to June 2006 in the archives for Unshelved...

I wish my job let me be sarcastic to customers. And let me be lazy and avoid working. Stupid fiction, raising my expectations to unachievable levels...

I managed to my back yesterday. Which I aggravated badly with my strenuous job of sitting, getting up to answer the phone and light lifting of coffee urns. And since walking from the bed to the kitchen for more Tylenol is still an comedic patch of mild agony I think I'll be taking tonight off...

1) The most popular New Year's resolution was to: Crush those who wronged me beneath my iron boot-heels.

2) The fightingest POTUS and expected champion of the Rumble in the Oval would be Teddy "The Bear" Roosevelt.

3) Say "nevermore" once more. Just once more...


4) The Next Big Thing: Either Cryptids in grade school or Vampire High School Musicals.

5) Not surprisingly Alfred is still the #1 choice in buterlin'.

6) The most popular choice in radioactive animal-bite themed character is Dr. Hedgehog. Do hedgehog's even have teeth?

7) If choosing a job based on television shows, the most popular choice is a maverick wise-cracking police consultant.

8) So its either The Secret Six/Scrooge McDuck or The Authority/Sonic the Hedgehog? Fuckin' furries...

9) Also, Sesame Street gets invaded by zombies? What is wrong with some of you? Don't answer that!

10) But in an affirmation of taste the majority wants to see Edward Cullen beaten down by groups of other vampires from fiction...

I hate the god's be damned drunks so much. SOOOOOOOOO MUCH. Last night's fun started with arguing with drunken idiots about a locked door and moved to a fire alarm being pulled and a visit from the popo...

There are times when I wish I lived in a dry county. I call those times work nights...

Why am I having to go into work like a chump? Surely I deserve to live a life indolence? After all I've done to earn it shouldn't I be getting paid to go back to sleep?

I wonder if Airman Higgs was introduced so that the Foglios could make him a Bosun, just as a really long set-up for a pun? Also how many people I'm infecting by passing out check-out envelopes I've licked...

[Poll #1524647]

I really don't want to go back to work next week...
lurkerwithout: (Tired hidden enigma)
Between work and family expect light posting to continue for the rest of the week...
lurkerwithout: (Plushtulu)
I'm trying to decide if being able to pay bills, put gas in the car, give the family rent money and buy more books and THEN still have plenty of money to get by for 2 weeks is worth putting up with drunks and having no social life. I'm having to say that Yes is the marginal winner...
lurkerwithout: (Sleep now)
I'm remembering again why I never do anything on the weekends when I'm working at the Scottsdale job. Its not just the 11-7 shifts on T/F/S. Its that I'm awake for a couple hours in the morning when I get home. Wake up for a few hours in the afternoon and then pretty much fall back asleep until its time to get ready for work...

I had intended to get up at 7pm so I could at least stop by a surprise party for the friend who owns my comics shop, but I just could not get the energy to get back up again until 9:30...
lurkerwithout: (sad Death of Rats in snow)
With my nights blocked by full time working again, I need to find people who can game on Sunday afternoons. This is made difficult by how introverted I am of course...
lurkerwithout: (Thunder Rolled)
So the Scottsdale hotel asked me back to the same shifts as before. So this will likely be the last free weekend for a while. Got to play two of my games that I'd been wanting to try again, Betrayal at the House on the Hill (which we won, even if I was a frog) and Vegas Showdown (which the ex-roommate surged ahead at the end to beat me at). Also got to play the updated version of Formula De, Formula D (which I lost very, very badly). And while I lost at Acquire I did much better than I normally do at that kind of game...
