So, after coming home yesterday I didn't bother to do anything but crash onto my makeshift bed and sleep. Well, I took off my glasses (after about an hour) so that I could roll over.
I slept from about 3:30 until 7 or a bit later. I did my best to stay awake for just a couple of hours before heading back to the land of sleep. Over night I only woke to take Monster out for his nightly constitution and then when my alarm clock went off at too bloody early in the morning.
The good news is that I appear to have slept my headache away but I'll give that until about 10 am to see if it's really gone or if it's just teasing me for a bit.
I'm really looking forward to my weekend off but I'm not looking forward to next week which work decided to pretty much mess up for me.
You see I gots me a friend coming into town on Sunday. I'm not sure how long she is in town for but I do understand there is a possibility that she is bribing me with someone else's delicious hot wings to come and pick her up at the airport. mmMmmM, Red's wings are so delicious when they are not turning your mouth into a coke-oven.
The problem with her being in town is that one or two of the evenings are generally out late and drunk but work decided to tell me at the last minute "Hey, remember that inventory thing we have going on next week? Well at the last minute you are now being informed that you are on it."
Inventory - if there is ever one time at work that I kinda sorta need to have my wits about me so that I can focus it's probably inventory. It's hard to focus after a night of heavy drinking and no sleep.
Work - You Suck!
Work also sucks in another way. My schedule is now changing. Well, there are 3 of us in the office and two of us get to suffer through schedule changes. I no longer have every weekend off, but I at least negotiated myself up to not having split days off on the other two weeks and the actual days off changed to something I can live with.
I also no longer work a set 6-3 and in fact wasn't even brought back to my old 8-5 stand by. No, I've got two or 3 11-8's mixed in every week now (as does the new girl). But the 3rd person who just had 3+ months off gets to have her shift fucking set in stone at 6:30 - 3:30 Mon-Fri.
Granted, I'm told that this is because of "medical reasons" even though I think she's just abusing the privilege! I can see having to work set hours, but How in the Holy Flying Fuck is it considered more medically safe for her to NOT work weekends? That's the biggest bullshit part of all of it.
Once Summer is done and one of my weekly joys disappears I'm going to see if I can work every Saturday again (except when NFL plays Saturday games of course) and start working 8-5 on my non 11-8 shifts. This will allow me a few more hours of sleep every day because 6 am is a burden.
I'd like to be able to work out a way to get back to taking my Craps classes so that I can get back into the routine of the game and start doing auditions again but I don't see that being possible currently.
I'm thinking about making some dealer friends and having them teach me poker over the course of a week or two since they would probably be able to do it around my schedule and trying a poker audition or two.
I've heard from Jennifer Gay that that is probably the best way to do it. Just grab a good dealer who can run you through the 3 types of games over the course of 8 hours and just drill the shit into your head and hit up an audition and you'd be better off than over paying for some dealing school/class.
I did not watch The Dark Knight Rises last night - I'm not big on seeing premiers as I like a little bit of space when I see movies. This is a movie that I badly want to watch and one of the few that I'm willing to pay the horrible Imax prices for. I'm curious to see how long it's going to take to be able to get tickets to see the movie without it being sold out. That's one of the great things about living in Vegas - so many theaters to choose from.
And now it is time for my morning constitution before heading to work.
Hasta La Pasta my friends.
