Ok, because of the coffee I didn't sleep until at least 230 this morning. I was tired and bitchy all day. Get over it. Then we were released from work early, at like 3pm. So I came back to the apartment and set my alarm for 5pm and took a nice nap. Now I have that fuzzy numb feeling from sleeping in the daytime for only a few hours. My coworker's birthday is tonight and we are all going to the Cheesecake Factory for dinner.

Since I'm waiting for it to be time for dinner, I guess I should relay my ups and downs today. Well, maybe just the downs because its kinda hard to type. In fact it's really hard to type without my right index finger, since I was taught to type correctly using home row and all that junk. I was setting down several large Dell desktops into the little electric vehicle we use for moving stuff like that. As I sat one down, I let it into a controlled slip for the last couple inches. A thin metal thingy in the back sliced a nice clean cut into my finger. Don't get me wrong, I can still type faster than most people I know :P

Lately I have had minor injuries nearly every day at work. This sucks. Two days ago the wire cart scraped my wrist just below my thumb on my right hand, so I have two bandaids on one hand. Last week, a laptop drive bay sliced clean into my left thumb just under the nail. I trip over everything, bump into things all the time, and have to prop computers up onto my thigh while picking them up. So I have bruises everywhere and my coworkers are generally sick of me.

Gah, but I'm sick of them today anyway. The one thing I want to do while stuck in Florida is visit Kennedy Space Center again. So I asked a couple people and they sounded really interested. It ended up pretty much everyone is invited, which is really cool because I don't want to go by myself. But then there's this one girl who completely takes control of it all and insists we have to go this weekend, starts hassleing everyone to agree with her even though half want to go next weekend. Then a couple people's feelings get hurt because they are basically being left out since they can't go and really want to. So finally I said I would go both weekends if they want, because I'm pretty sure I won't see everything in a single visit. It all just made me not even want to go because she was making it not fun anymore. She has to make everything a confrontation and have it all her way, she took over my fucking trip and now I don't want to go.

It doesn't help that I got 1 1/2 hours of sleep last night.

I am now extremely hungry and tired at the same time. Is it dinnertime yet?

  1. In the words of Arnie: "STOP WHINING!"


    Hehe.. as far as the cuts n stuff... forget bandaids... buy yourself some superglue... seriously it works wonders, especially on hand wounds where bandaids are really inconvienent. I use super glue whenever iget a cut that wont stop bleeding after a minute. somepoeple think I'm crazy but it's actually quite safe, jsut clean the wound first and dont try to jam it in there. It doesn't sting and is nice and neat... They make actual first aid stuff that's essentially super glue with a pretty lable on it so you can use that if you like... skin shield is one of the ones that comes to mind but sweet jesus does that stuff BURN... it burns for a good 5 minutes... YMMV =)

    As far as that mouthy yotch.... hey you're in florida... there's plenty of swamps with hungry aligators around... no body, no crime. ;) Just make your next trip to the everglades... just watch out for the EBIES (or whatever they are) hehe.

    Kennedy is quite cool, went there once as a child, man the walk around that big rocket is awe inspiring.

  2. Hmm I have that liquid bandaid stuff at home, but you aren't lying about the burn. I'd rather soak my hand in lemon saltwater. For real super glue doesn't burn??? Cool.

  3. Not that I've seen... do tell.

    No, super glue does not burn that I've ever noticed... just make sure you use the "regular" stuff and not the super industrial strength stuff and you'll be fine.
