It’s been a long week … and it’s Valentine’s Day, which in and of itself is a dumb day … and I have to work not only tomorrow (Saturday) but also Sunday. So … since this is Friday and Valentine’s Day … here is my plan … because this is what will happen when I get home tonight … no matter what time I get there.

Carry on, all … and have a great Valentine’s Day, if that’s what you do.

This to me has seemed like a very long week.

Roy’s work schedule was changed around and there was at least one day that I left the house at 5am and didn’t get home till 9pm, only to get up the next day at 4am to do it all over again.

I needed coffee to survive.

On Monday I was quite sick with a migraine headache … and on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, my body was arguing with an abdominal migraine (yes, there is such a thing, and, yes, they’re rare in adults, and, yes, I do get them).

I’m better today after dragging myself to work every day except for Monday when I spent the day in the dark and pretended I was a bat, since any light hurt my head.  I never used to know what my mother meant when she’d say “it’s hell getting old”.  Now I do.

I’ve learned the following trick however.

ANYWAY!!!

Today with it being FINALLY FRIDAY and feeling much better and having  a 3-day weekend with Monday off for Veterans’ Day (they deserve it more than any other group I know out there), I’m ready to let loose.  I get THREE WHOLE DAYS OF UNMITIGATED FREEDOM where they let me out of my cubicle jail on good behaviour.  So I’m dedicating the following George Jones’ song to all of my friends out there:

 

*~*~*

 

I've got a hundred dollars smokin' in my billfold. 
I know I outta save it, but it's burnin' a hole 
Right through my pocket and into my skin.
Come Monday mornin', I'll be broke again.
It's Finally Friday! I'm free again!
I got my motor runnin' for a wild weekend!
It's Finally Friday! I'm out of control!
Forget the workin’ blues and let the good times roll!
I got a little sugar baby down the road.
She's sittin on a radio, rockin' n roll.
We'll dance up a storm, and later in the night,
We'll be workin' on doin’ all the wrong things right.
It's Finally Friday! I'm free again!
I got my motor runnin' for a wild weekend!
It's Finally Friday! I'm out of control!
Forget the workin’ blues and let the good times roll!
Monday, I'll be hurtin’ with my head in a vice.
Tuesday, I'll be wonderin’ if I'll ever survive.
Wednesday and, uh, Thursday, I'll be slowly tunin' in.
Friday, I'll be revvin' up my motor again.
It's Finally Friday! I'm free again!
I got my motor runnin' for a wild weekend!
It's Finally Friday! I'm out of control!
Forget the workin’ blues and let the good times roll!

FINALLY FRIDAY
George Jones

Friday Evening

20131018-125343.jpg

It’s Friday night. It’s time to relax with a glass (or 2) of wine with dinner.

Carry on, all.

TGIF!

What could be better?

Wine

Chocolate

S’mores

It’s certainly cheaper than therapy.

With the things that have been going on in Government Circles of late, both within State Government and within the Federal Government … and since I work as a hated “Government Analyst” for the State of California (which apparently makes me fair game to any and all taxpayers, even though I work incredibly hard for my paycheck and would be paid more in private industry – if it were hiring but it isn’t due to the sucky economy), like my earlier post implies, there are times I can say that the overall attacks on “government waste” are warranted.  I can see it from inside the system as well as outside.

more wine

When nothing in government moves fast and no one person that works for the government can make a unilateral decision like is being implied with the IRS debacle, it wears me out to get thrown under the bus like a lot of the powers-that-be like to do to those that are working the trenches.  Some of what I see, however, is rampant in not only government work but in private industry. 

For example, when there is a major IT project due within the next month that is required by legislation and parts of it will affect and cover the subject matter in which I specialize but it’s not done correctly even though the proper information was provided to said powers-that-be 6 MONTHS AGO and it can’t be programmed by IT in time to be part of the roll-out, well …

Failure to plan on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.

… particularly when I’m asked “what are we going to do?”  This simply makes me want to respond with “who is this ‘we’, kemosabe?”  I’m not part of the development.  I’m not part of the solution.  I’m definitely out of my element when it comes to IT and computer programming.  I don’t know what you are going to do, but I am not going to do anything.  That’s up to you.

Therefore, I ask this of the FBI:

After you are all done looking for Jimmy Hoffa, would you please move onto the next Jimmy and help him out, as a lot of us need to find that same thing right about now.

lost jimmy 

That will solve any issue … at least once I leave work and get home where it’s safe.

 

 Carry on, all … and remember …
