Wastin' away again...

And me without my salt shaker.

Work is slow again today, but at least it doesn't look like I'll be sent home early. So I should get in enough hours this week.

I'm still not used to this whole hourly pay thing. I got used to salary for 10 years, even when I was and exempt employee and got overtime I never got paid for less than 40 hours a week. (Well, not while I wasn't having time off without pay, at least.) Now I've got a time clock to punch (well, slide the bar-coded card through) each night and morning. Being five minutes late is a big deal and leaving five minutes early is a big deal. Make either of those a half hour and fuggedaboutit.

Strangely, drove in to work today. That had more to do with going out to my friend Bob's for weekly gaming than the weather. Though it did give my gloves and shoes a better chance to dry out before being pressed into service again. If my gloves are still damp this morning, I'll have to find a drier place to hang them up. Maybe near an A/C vent....
