Another Day, Another Reason to Drink

In my world everyone is a pony, and they all eat rainbows, and poop butterflies.
-Katie from the animated movie "Horton Hears A Who!"

I'm also 5'9", am independently wealthy and have the face of a Botticelli, the body of a Degas, and perfect skin.

Yeah. I'm kind of in a mood.

Also... I'm currently at the office.

We didn't have our "meeting" today since two of our team called in sick with this flu thing that's been going around. And of those that did show up today, two were sick but working since they couldn't afford the time off. Our manager had us roll our chairs around, and she gave us a handful of things on her list to update us on. One our leads spoke. And we were done.

Me and one of the sick girls started at the same time and were closing together, but since another girl who was supposed to stay until 7pm called in sick, we have no coverage so we can take our lunches. I am currently on mine and then when I get back, the other girl will be taking hers. Thankfully it's slowing down for the night, but there are those random spurts of business that can screw one person over when they don't have any help. I offered to assist if needed, but I was told that it should be fine and not to worry about it.

On a nice note, our manager bought us soup. One of the ladies that was out sick was one of the leads. She had told me on Monday that she planned on ordering from a variety of restaurants we just signed to see how the food was, but I guess since she didn't make it in, that was a no-go. Not sure if our manager knew about that, but I think she felt inspired to get everyone in our department soup since everyone seems to be getting sick.

*chants: I don't wanna get sick. I don't wanna get sick. I don't wanna get sick!*

In Writing Land...

Did some notebook writing as opposed to story blog updates because I suck. (And also I get into moods where I just want to write with a pen instead of a computer... although I do favor the computer since I can type what I'm thinking faster than I can hand write it out.

The scenes I've been handwriting have been a little LEVERAGE fanfiction and a little other story idea that I've had in my head for a while now.

I've been participating in the 365 pic challenge. I've been posting them via my Instagram account, as well as cross-posting them on my Twitter and Facebook accounts. I'm actually a little surprised that I've keeping up with it for as long as I have. Granted it's only been half of the first month of the new year, and there are 365 days total, but yeah... we'll see where this goes.

Mulling around ideas and such for two projects that I meant to start last year but then things fell through or I just didn't have the time. Hopefully I'll be able to work on that this year... among other "non-writing" ideas/projects I've got brewing in my noggin.

Also a friend of mine is looking to add more content on his website so he asked if I could post these weekly posts on his site, but I kind of want to keep them for me. (Call me selfish.) Then he had suggested on doing a column or something, but I have no idea what I'd write about. Freeballin' it is one thing. But a column-type scenario? I want to help him out, I do, but when it comes to writing for others, I just blank out.

In other news, I'll be taking care of my friends' cats while they're away for a few days. I was hoping to just do the evenings (and selfishly sleep my insomnia ass away until my next nigh shift), but the other person tapped for help is unable to assist with the caretaking of said little feline beasties. In all honesty, it does make me a little grumbly and a small part of me would like to know why they can't offer assistance, but that's all right. I'm sure their reasons are legit. In the end, I just want my little furry peeps taken care of.

I just wish Insomnia would stop staring at me and cackling like a mad woman.

Well, since I have no story blog updates to grace you with, I think I'll cut the babble short and sign this bad boy off.

And who knows? Maybe I'll actually get some sleep tonight. Ohhhh, really good dreams would be a plus, too. *wink wink nudge nudge say no more!*

Later my lovelies.

Have Goodness!
