I got myself a nice Oven Stuffer Roaster this morning, let it marinate in a balsamic vinegar and roasted onion sauce all day, the stuffed it with baby red potatoes and red onion. It’s cooking now, won’t be done until about eleven tonight, but it smells YUMMY. Gotta love those oven roasting bags, just pop everything in there and let it cook. No muss, no fuss.

Sooo yeah, got the night off tonight and I just woke up a little bit ago. Heh, the chicken’s gonna be breakfast, but I never was much of a traditionalist. I had kinda an odd dream last night. I was doing the convenience store things, selling cigarettes specifically, but instead of actually being in the store, I was in somebody’s living room, and I couldn’t find any of the light switches, so it was dark and i was trying to find the cigarretes I needed by feel. That’s all the details I remember, just an odd little dream.

In other news, I got way sick last week, Missing three days of work and doing nothing but sleep kind of sick. It was almost like a three day migraine. My head was throbbing and I wanted NO input whatsoever. Not TV, not video games, not music, nothing. All I did was sleep and get up long enough to eat. Ugh, not fun. I’m better now. Actually, I’ve felt better in the past two days than I have in weeks, so I hope it’s out of my system.

Annnd, that’s really about it. Oh wait, one more thing. Remember how I said New girl #3 was pregnant? Well now Kelli, the other regular third shift worker, is also pregnant…. About six weeks, with a due date in mid-December….. *Sigh* I ain’t never getting off nights ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Where, oh, where has David gone? Where, oh, where can he be?……

toilet

That about says it all ๐Ÿ™‚

Clean though, isn’t it? So, scrubbing toilets aside, my life’s been fairly routine…….. Work. Eat. Sleep. Repeat….. I’m still on nights, which contributes to the routine. We hired, then fired two new girls for overnight. One was let go because she failed the background check, the other because she and her boyfriend were helping themselves to free stuff. New Girl #3 started this week, and she’s several months pregnant, so I’m thinking she may be temporary.

Not for nothing, and not saying we should discriminate against the breeders, but if I went into a job interview and said, “I plan on working here four to six months and then take a several month break. After which, I may or may not come back.”, I don’t think they’d give me the job….

… Just sayin’ ๐Ÿ˜›

Anyway, work is actually going quite well. I’ve been staying focused and being “mr responsible”, taking on new duties and pitching in whenever there’s been a crisis. I actually won a company award for “team member of the first quarter”, which I’m fairly proud of myself for. I got a little certificate and everything. My personal life is fine, no great advances, but no big drama either. I guess that’s why the big slump in blogging, I haven’t had much to bitch about. I’m making slow, if steady progress, working to make my life better. Which is good, but hardly exciting blogging material.

So, I’ll work on finding non-toilet related inspiration and update more often. Stay tuned for further developments ๐Ÿ˜‰
