Holidays that aren’t on Mondays or Fridays usually kind of suck. At least for those of us who weren’t able to take the preceding (or following) day off. Being on call this week, I fall into that category, so not only did I have to work yesterday (though I did it from home, which kinda took the edge off a bit), but I’m on call today (and, in fact, I’ve gotten one call so far that I had to deal with, and now I’ll be worried all night about what else might happen) so I couldn’t really do much of anything even if I was still the kind of person who actually did things. So I feel relatively fortunate that I don’t have any friends or plans to grill up some burgers and drink beer today. Mostly my plans involve wasting time going to Home Depot for shit they claimed to have in stock but didn’t, and then cobbling something else together that didn’t work either. So, yeah, so far so good. Later, I guess I’ll do some laundry and then of course get my lunch ready so I can go back to work tomorrow (where I have to attend a stupid meeting).
