Getting Paid to do nothing + volume 4

Neither my Supervisor or my Lead is at work today… so I really have no one.. watching me.. today.. as I sit and listen to music and watch videos, at work. This job sucks~

So.. what are YOUR plans for New Year’s? If I have one more classic “sit at home and watch that damn ball drop” year… gah! A year ago I had everything figured out… everything. I was happy, I knew what my plans were 6 months ahead of me, and so on. Oh, how funny life is when it shifts dramatically…

Yes, I work on weekends. My schedule is Saturday-Wednesday, which grants me an additional percentage to my paycheck due to “non standard hours” or something. It’s not bad.. really, it’s not.. except when I get in at 11:45 and then chat and play Yahoo! Pool until 1:30 in the morning… and I have to wake up 5 hours later for work. *sighs*

Vizzini: You only think I guessed wrong – that’s what’s so funny. I switched glasses when your back was turned. Ha-ha, you fool. You fell victim to one of the classic blunders, the most famous of which is “Never get involved in a land war in Asia”, but only slightly less well known is this: “Never go in against a Sicilian, when *death* is on the line.”. Hahahahahah.
[Vizzini falls over dead]

Volume 3 + hamsters upgraded at work

So we got new computers at work. Armed with the latest in technology, including optical mice, WinXP, and a DVD player in every one of them. Dell makes cute little computers, but I can’t help but think “these are like the little train that could.”

So, I spent about 6 hours of my 8 hour day yesterday, copying music into the computer. The DVD player recognizes CD-RW, so my entire car collection is good to go. Slap in my wireless headphones, and I’ve got my own mini concert hall. I was watching music videos on Launch for about 2 hours yesterday — while getting paid, mind you. Saturday will be “let’s see if I can bring movies from home and watch them during work.”

6 more working days until Christmas! And then I get a paid week off, in which I return to work for full overtime until after the New Year, yay!

Vizzini: Now, a clever man would put the poison into his own goblet, because he would know that only a great fool would reach for what he was given. I am not a great fool, so I can clearly not choose the wine in front of you. But you must have known I was not a great fool, you would have counted on it, so I can clearly not choose the wine in front of me.
