I got my watch (one out of two actually, the first - my favorite - refused to work even with a new battery) fixed the other day. Did I mention that? I'm pretty damn happy 'bout it, it's been nearly three months since last I had a watch reside on my wrist.

Oy, I just got back a little bit ago from work ... I'm tired. x_x My left knee's been hurting me all night as I walk ... I'm beginning to wonder if the knot there is actually having some sort of an affect upon my muscles ... it is the largest knot out of the ones on my knees, and lately when I lie down something in that joint pops painfully, and when we went to Mackinac, I had to stagger back to the hotel through town - I simply couldn't walk anywhere anymore, it hurt too much. Blah. -_-;

So anyway, I got back from work. Thankfully I did get paid this evening (although not as much as everyone else ... I plan to be bitter about this). From 4:00 until 6:00, I spent my time at one of the ticket centers, taking money and/or tickets. From 6:00 until 6:20, I spent my time running around looking for particular individuals with change for the cashboxes, escorting guests to other gates, and just generally being a lackey. From 6:30 until about 9:30, I basically cleaned up after other people. o_O There's nothin' like picking up other people's trash to make you feel kind of sticky and unclean. ^_^;

I've also learned that you can't get upwind of cigar smoke. Also, when old men get drunk, old men get lecherous.

I had a thought to expound upon about the power balance in a cafeteria, but I'm too tired now. Remind me later or something, lol. It's pretty damn obvious, but I had fun thinking about it.

My grandmother is coming tomorrow morning for a week. So I may or may not be updating LJ much, or may/not even be online. TBA, as further details become apparent. I'll probably be online more than I should, though. That's a given. O_o

I'm thirsty. TT

I'm sorry work was so rough for you today. But it seems you had time to formulate a funny thought, though ^^; Little things like that keep me going during the day. And I'm really sorry to hear about your joints... Someone your age really shouldn't have to be going through all that. At least youth allows you to be more receptive to treatments than someone twice or three times your age.

Wow, that sure was a sullen paragraph. I apologize. ^__^; Now, a wrist watch - I was never a big fan of those, but when I got my cell phone I could never stop checking the time. Yes, that's right, at work I am a Clock Looker.

heh, I've been "forumulating" this theory on and off for awhile, since I was back at school and everyone was complaining about the cafeteria staff, lol.

I have an itch. Don't you hate itches? Itch, itch. x_x

Eww, itches... It's that time of the year again for mosquitoes. Around here we have recently been getting mosquitoes carrying the west nile virus, so that adds paranoia in addition to the itching.

Mackinac - is that Mackinac island? Wonderful place.

Sad to hear about work and the pain :-(. You should have that looked at, if possible....

[start of pointless story]

The watch thing - at my old job, we were GMP compliant, which meant hairnets/beard nets, no dangly jewelry, lab coats, etc. And that included watches - you had to take them off before entering the lab or plant, or tape them up. We justed started GMP, so the guidelines were followed pretty strict, and the company started giving out GMP-compliant time pieces (they're the old "carry them around in your pocket and attach the chain to the belt loop" type that could be under a labcoat). I ended up getting a miniture one attached to my keychain, and just got out of the habit of wearing a watch.

[end of pointless story]

Yeah! (Fuuudge ... *_*) I put in a job application to work at the fort, but alas, there has been no response. I should probably call and bug them, or something ... I'm more than qualified, heh. Although, it's also kind of a good thing that they haven't called back, because I wrote on the application that I would be ready to work by the 4th, and when June 4th rolled around, I still had a bandage on my head from surgery. ^_^;;; It probably wouldn't have been very historically accurate. o_o

Pointless stories are nice! I tell a lot of them myself (sometimes repeatedly to different people over AIM, heh ... maybe I should be more efficient with my time and get everyone together in a chat. o_o) I find watches (and clocks!) pretty handy ... I probably have more combined than I really need, but none of them are ever on the right time anyway. ^_^;; I tend to set them five minutes fast, but then I get exasperated when I'm standing outside waiting for people for awhile because I got there early. o_o;

A while ago a group of friends I talk to regularly on AIM who know eachother thought it would be a great idea to start a chat room, and since we had always-on connections, just stay in there. It was a great time saver ^_^
