Howdy hey folks

Hello everybody!  How are you?  I am fine.

Yeah, yeah, whatever.

June is my second busiest time of the year, after December.  This is why I have no life.  Well, that and extreme shyness and social anxiety.  As I have mentioned way too many times, last December I worked every day but Christmas.  Last June I worked 19 days in a row.  I am set up to beat that record into dust this June, as it is extremely likely I will be working from June 8 to July 2 without a day off.  Why is that, you ask?  Partly because my boss is too cheap to hire more help.  Partly because my field of law is such a specialized field that very few people are in it and getting a new person up to speed where they'd be of any use at all would take a couple of years. 

Oh, and let's not forget that it's partly because my BOSS is in freaking HAWAII on VACATION all week.  Two weeks before our second biggest deadline.  Bastard.

In case you're wondering, I've told him all this already so I feel safe in relating it here.  The day before he left, he said he was thinking about having us ship him a box of stuff for him to work on in Hawaii.  I told him to drop dead.  Actually, I said no way in hell were we going to the time and expense to ship stuff to him in Hawaii, and if he wanted to work that badly this week then he could stay here and I'd go to Hawaii in his place.  Seeing as how I've NEVER BEEN and all.  He called the first day he was away at 5:45 a.m. his time.  I yelled at him.  It's been nice and peaceful here ever since. 

The moral of the story is I have neither the time nor the energy to do any running and I will most likely be fairly scarce around here as well.  My days, every day, consist of going to work, working, going home, eating dinner, and going to sleep.  It gets to be where taking the time to eat gets to be inconvenient; so far I've done pretty well in stopping to eat on a regular basis lest I get even more stressed (and obnoxious) than I am now. 

Well, that's all for me.  I have a few minutes to write this because I'm still at work (it's after 7:00) and I'm waiting for some stuff to print.  I think I'll be giving up on that any minute now.

For those of you who are having a wonderfully joyous summer, please have a little fun for me :)

  1. shit...sorry to hear about that babe! Sounds like you need a European vacation after all that hard work in June! ;o) Thanks for being kind about my DREADFUL time in the Santa Claus Half...I walked it mostly, but hey, I made it, I am alive and that is all that counts. Now for more humiliation in Norway! ;o) But can't beat the scenery...
    If you do ever decide to come visit your Finnish peeps my door is always open in Amsterdam (well not literally...that would be a bit dangerous...but for you I will put it on the latch!) and I make a pretty good tour guide! (and no grumbling about having to lose any weight!!!! Grrrr)
