Morning Seditionists

Timeline

I’ve been playing with Google’s new “timeline” feature, which (assuming you have location enabled on your phone, which I do) shows you where you’ve been (and for how long) on any given day. And if I didn’t realize what an exciting life I lead before, I certainly do now. Basically, it’s five days a week Home>Work>Home, then Home>Costco>Home, and Home>Home>Home. Sometimes I switch things up a bit and go to Costco on Sunday. Prior to January 16, there was also a 6 – 7 minute stop on the way home at the grocery store down in our village for beer every two or three days, and it has the trip I took to Minneapolis back over Thanksgiving weekend, plus when I went to my in-laws on Christmas Day. Mostly, though, it’s work and home, and home and work.

A Chance to Relax

My long nightmare of multiple five-day weeks has finally ended. Actually, it ended on Tuesday with the return of the guy I work with from his well-earned vacation. Fortunately, nothing too overwhelming crapped out on my watch and it’s really nice to not only have a few days off but to not have to carry my goddamn work phone around with me everywhere I go. The only real bummer id that I have to take Fritzi to the vet tomorrow morning for his Lyme booster and Lepto shot. Although I hate going, he’s at least pretty easy to handle and hopefully we’ll be in and out in a hurry and then I won’t have any vet trips to worry about for a while (as long as they all manage to avoid hurting each other to the point of breaking bones or needing stitches).

Fee, Fi, Phone Fun

Gosh, it’s been a while, so I guess it’s time I put something up here. I kept starting to write stuff, but then some needy bastard at work would call me or some system would get all screwy and I’d have to go deal with some crisis or another. I’ve now been not on-call on-call 24/7 for nine days and I have the rest of today and tomorrow to go. It kinda sucks.

This is the day that you godless liberals hate more than any other day (except for Christmas and Easter) – the day when we celebrate Jesus Christ writing and presenting the Constitution (not that Bill of Rights crap, though – except the Second Amendment, but not those other fruity ones) to King George III and his Nazi wife. History tells us that George was so enraged when he read the document that his head exploded, thereby spawning the traditional display of fireworks on this day (another thing liberals hate about this holiday, because many Americans enjoy fireworks, and as we all know, liberals hate to see people enjoying themselves doing anything except for smoking dope, burning the flag, or eating gay wedding pizza).

Happy Holiday (Observed)

To all of you who aren’t NY State Employees (or postal workers), Happy Holiday! Here in NY, Governor Snotball has made it clear that we need to get our asses to work today. Though, judging by how empty the parking lot is, maybe he didn’t make it quite clear enough. Anyhow, the wife and I are at work today, and I’d planned on taking Monday and Tuesday off, but since some asshole decided to make promises on my behalf (and without my knowledge), it appears that won’t happen. Plus the other person I work with is on vacation the week after that, so I’m looking at three or four five-day weeks in row. And since he’s the one that knows stuff, I’m looking at a couple of pretty shitty weeks.
