Work!? At this hour?

After being called off from working last night, I got in a bit of sleep overnight, figuring that with three 12-hour days coming up, I'd probably be glad of it. I was woken up in the middle of the afternoon, however, after Ericka was on the phone so long with a friend that the batteries in her phone's handset died. Said friend, having been disconnected called back. Ericka, of course, couldn't answer. So the friend called back again. And again. And. Again.

Finally, I woke up and brought Ericka another handset. By then, the damage was done, however. I was awake and I was grumpy. Watching a silly Sci Fi channel movie didn't put me to sleep, despite the main flaw of the movie being that nothing happened during it.

Eventually, I got some food and that helped my mood, as did the short relaxing after with a full belly. Too soon, however, I had to come to work because of the 12-hour days. I learned at our first peak that staying up until 11:00 a.m. is not an option for me. So, instead, I come in early and stay a little late, working 9:00 to 9:00.

So, I'm here and I'm working. Not very busy but probably busy enough to justify the extra staffing. And, hey, they want to pay me overtime this week, who am I to turn it down?
