the lack of the blogs.

so, it goes like this. life has been hectic. thus the non-blogging. i've been clocking about 60 hours a week. and yes, the OT checks are effing sweet. but i gotta say, it's not all that much worth it. i'm exhausted, and ten different kinds of sick, and still drowning in work. the fact of the matter is that we're desperately understaffed, and somehow the powers that be are in denial. or something. maybe the 47 hours of overtime they had to pay me on yesterday's paycheck will make something click in their little heads? like, maybe it's more economically practical to pay someone else 35 hours of regular pay than to pay me 30 hours of time-and-a-half?

so yeah, there's been the working, and very little else. i've had a sinus infection for about two weeks now, and then this past week, i got food poisoning! now, we all know that in the illness department i'm a go-getter, and this event was no different. i didn't have to be hospitalized or anything, but when my temperature was nearing 103 don't think we didn't have talks about the emergency room. one of these days i'm gonna get me some scarlet fever, or maybe polio, and then we'll know the stuff i'm made of...

so yeah, there's been no blogging. and no social life. and no cooking, or cleaning, or keeping up with normal life responsibilities. last month several of my bills got paid late - VERY uncharacteristic of me.

money or not, this craziness has got to stop. i'm exhausted, and my body has all but given up on me. this week was all but a loss, and i'm more behind now than ever. they still haven't hired anyone. it's been two full weeks since sack-of-potatoes got fired. how long does it take? it's new york for chrissake. there are a few bright hardworking educated people looking for jobs around here, or so i hear at least.

speaking of which, anybody wanna join the team? as you know from my descriptions, it's the best job ever! great management, ideal seating arrangements, perfectly balanced workload... or, you know, the exact opposite of that. but whatever. it's a job, and you can bust your ass for a mediocre paycheck, little appreciation, and pretty good benefits. woo! you'd get to work with me, which always makes life interesting...

aah, existence. mere existence, and little else. i've been reading fiction for weeks now. yeah, it's that bad. no research for me; my brain just can't hold it right now. so it goes, so it goes. it'll swing back. it always does.
