Over the past twenty-four hours I have come down with a miserable cold. Decongestants, painkillers, caffeine, and heavy makeup masked the illness well enough that I was able to work today (and made good money), but Eclecstasy continues to be fraught with drama and toward the end of my shift, with my head pounding and the holiday crowd milling and a Crazy Coworker* crazing all over the place, I looked at the schedule and realized this person would be working with me again tomorrow and was like "fuck it, I cannot do this one little bit sicker with any kind of grace." So I got my shift covered and will be staying at home and drinking orange juice and rubbing my scent glands all over the innernet in the hopes that rest will help. Is there anything exciting I may have missed over the past couple of weeks? Have you or anyone else written anything I ought to read? Link away, friends.
* Yeah, 90% of my issues at work are to do with one person, who is Bat Guano Crazy, and claims to have survived like eight bouts of cancer, and then adopted a couple of kids, and I was telling Hotter all of this and he was like "are you SURE Stalky doesn't work at Eclecstasy???" and I was like "yeah what the eff anyway?" but this one isn't claiming to be an OMG TRAGIC WIDOW (yet--her husband was allegedly having some kind of serious surgery last week so, you know, stay tuned) and is better-looking so yeah, no. I guess the take-home lesson is that people can also act like talk-show rednecks OFFline?
