Night Two

So, here I am at night two of "Nothing At All To Do At Work". I started at 2:00 PM today and right now, at 4:30, all of my paperwork is done. I have nothing else to do. And they are paying me to do it. I won't complain. It's just going to be a very long night.

I had almost completely forgotten that I have a vacation day tomorrow because my poetry group has a reading tomorrow night. That get's me out of this trap for then. I have not yet decided what I will be reading. I hope that we have a much better turn out than we did last time. Now that the holidays are over we should.

I slept in a bit this morning, when to the pharmacy, and went to the car wash to get all of the puke cleaned off. A little air freshener, and it is liveable in there now. I'm feeling better today than I did yesterday, although my stomach is a bit queasy right now and my throat is very flemy. Say, what's green and ice skates? Peggy Flem. Heh, heh.

One of my managers keeps slipping in and out the back door this afternoon. He is sneeking a lot of smokes, I suspect. Speaking of which, there is still no word on when our big boss will be replaced or who the replacement will be. I'm thinking that they will wait until the end of March when our fiscal year turns over. There are a number of prospects that I could live with, and one or two that I would dread. We can only hope and wait.

There is supposed to be a big meeting on some currently secret topic on this coming Tuesday. I suspect one of two things: 1) the company will announce that no raises will be given this year, or 2)the company will be offering a number of early retirement packages to certain senior employees in an attempt to cull the herd. Or it could be both. I know I'm not taking a retirement now. I can't afford to do that right now.

Well, I'll post more later. I'm off to read some journals and visit Facebook for a while.


  1. Nothing to do sure makes the night drag on.

    Have a great night off tomorrow!

  2. Enjoy your day off tomorrow. Nice 3-day weekend. I know I'va asked this before, but what kind of work do you do? Hugs.
