    After 2.5 weeks I finally got a working fridge. Good thing it's been cold outside.

    I can afford real food!

    Worked 16 hrs last night, slept for about 3.5 hrs, went back to work tonight, less than a half hour to go until I'm off. Then I will eat awesome tex-cajun food and a Shiner at B.B.'s Cafe before stumbling home to crash until the washer/dryer repairman wakes me up far too early.

    Long damn day of doing stuff and doing all I can not to fuck up. Not monumental, like not an interview or important task. I just wanted to get a few things right. And I did, I think. Well, I didn't burst into tears. Always a win.

    I faced down my life, I exercised, I did a couple things to further long term goals, I studied some Japanese, I tried out my very own pair of regulation Girl Genius goggles. Let's see if I can match if not exceed that tomorrow.

    Oh and Kahlua Especial in milk makes a terrific night cap. Aw yeah, sweet girlie drinks with a higher proof than scotch. }:>

    Got a sweet little Sunday run out to Bath and back which, at Sunday rates, should make a nice dent in my van insurance bill. Starts at 6am though, so goodnight all.

    In the halfway point of another 16hr shift, but at least I'm off for a couple days afterwards. Feel like you're getting your money's worth out of me, American Taxpayers!

    Today was good. I went on a photo walk today, which brought forth some pretty results.

    Also, after some pondering of it, and pondering further on how things got out of hand for me last night, I came to the thought that I probably have a drinking problem. This isn't the first time I've had one, so I'm more familiar with what to look out for and I'm...really not fond of my enthusiasm for drinking so much beer that I get really freakin' drunk. I don't like losing control and I don't like...well, already said it. The enthusiasm for drinking is a bit over what it should be. So...I'm going to be cutting back. Either stop it all together for a time (I'll be making a homebrew next week, so that's a month until it's ready and then I enjoy occasional drink after that) or I limit drinks to 1 for the entire night when I do drink (usually Saturday). Will still think on it, but for now I've gone from appreciating the taste and history of a beer to appreciating the strong alcohol content of certain beers. Not good. So I'm cut off until I firmly decide what's to be done and for how long.

    I'm told Friday I'm getting a delivery of my fanciest television ever. A 60in LCD. I've never owned anything quite this nice before, and am quite looking forward to it. Just got my LG surround sound system the other day as well. And none of this is in anticipation of the Super Bowl. I just like movies & video games, and I've been working my ass off the past year or two, and it's about damn time I got something nice for myself, dammit.

    I'll have a gig in London on the 5th of March!

    Seriously, I think my downstairs neighbors have a professional marijuana growing operation going on, literally underneath my nose. Windows blacked out, fine, but just noticed a corner of window with blacklight coming out... plus they're overloading the circuit breakers. After the home invasion a couple weeks ago, things are starting to add up.

    ... midway through another double shift. I should search the site & see how many times I've posted something to the effect of me working 16hrs straight, only to return to work a mere 8hrs later. It's repetitive, I know, I just have to tell someone that they're getting their money's worth out of my ass. Damn republicans think "federal workers get paid too much"-kiss my ass. Of course, I am whining about how hard I'm working, while I'm fucking off on the internets. Maybe Govspy should quit while he's ahead.

    Flights to London and back: BOOKED.
