as always, no video, except the one in my head. Had a crazy dream last night, you, myself and a number of folks from the gatherings were in a warehouse boxing up TR swag to ship out to the folks, dreams are cool.

I have to go to work today, so I don't care WHAT the calendar says. It's Monday.

As always...I'm thinking that either I missed this post yesterday, or you posted late last night/early this morning. Hope you have a great weekend :) !

We worked today to make up for being closed by the snow and ice. Since today is the last day of our work week, it's Friday.

I agree with ya Nick...I've worked a few different jobs where my Monday had technically been a Friday or Saturday. Hope you have a good one none the less :)

You realize, don't you, that your solicitude means you can be bent and twisted to the aim of others, now that they know.

Won't happen on my watch. Besides, who could forget she who dares go where and do what.

My weekend this week was the two ice days, after a one-day work week (I worked last Sunday). Since there are four days after Monday in the work week and I have six days to go as of today, it's Monday.

And, am I easy to bend? On the other hand, 2 thumbs and 6 spams... when has that ever been enough to make the lists? Except now. Slow week. You didn't like LIHE? I thought it was an interesting parallel...

The glass is half-empty...but there's more beer in the fridge.

If you look the glass from the top, it's hard to tell how full it is, so don't stick your nose in too deep.

put yourself down for hazard pay as well, cruising the roads through the snow should count for that at least.

My partner is on vacation this week, so I've got the area from Sylvania to Statesboro to Swainsboro to Sandersville, GA, to Greenwood to Columbia to Myrtle Beach to Barnwell, SC, to cover. That's one big blob. Thank the FSM it's been quiet, even with the bad weather. The two long days Wednesday and Thursday were primarily drive time, not call load.

I think? I think you work too much, tell your boss Mike says you need a large raise.

You don't count forward from the beginning, you count backward from the end: Friday, Thursday, Wednesday, Tuesday, Monday, Monday, Monday, Monday... At least, that's how most people would do it. I do it right: Friday afternoon, Monday morning, Monday, Monday, Monday, Monday, Monday, Monday... I figure if I go into every day expecting Monday, I'll always be ready for the worst, then pleasantly surprised those times it doesn't happen. :D

is Tuesday? I will call it Sunday. Been a bizarre week with 2 days out for the snow, will be nice to have a regular week next week, temps should be normal. Low 50's

I don't know [i]what[/i] you told me. I know [i]that[/i] you told me. Big difference. The rest isn't knowing... it's ping pong.

In fact, abandon preoccupation with that closed to you, as in, "like" (I did. Now, having told you, what further do you know other than what I told you?).
