The Things I do for that man!!!

on February 11, 2008 - 2:32am

Oh, I am sooooo seriously sleep deprived tonight!!!!

I didn't get much sleep yesterday...just couldn't seem to settle down. Then, of course, I had to get up early so I could make sure to catch that HAWT HAWT man on the Grammys. I should have known he wouldn't be on until closer to the end. I'm going to pay, but it is SOOOOO worth it.

I have to say, I haven't watched the Grammys in years!!! Seriously. And I also have to say, I enjoyed the Grammys way more than the AMA's. At least it wasn't totally hip hop crap.

And that performance with Josh & Andrea Bocelli? SOOOOO WORTH GOING WITHOUT SLEEP!!!

How do I convert that to an MP3 so I can put it on my JoshPod? HMMMM...I'll have to find some software. :)

Yes, Josh (as if he reads this...hahaha) I am willing to go without sleep to see you for 5 minutes on TV. How sick am I? I won't go without sleep for much, if I can help it! I LOVE to sleep!

Nothing else much going on...same-o, same-o. Just trying to plug along. I really need to have some fun!!! Too bad there aren't any Josh concerts coming up within driving if I have any money to go anyway, but I would FIND the money!!! Maybe a third job? I think Starbucks is hiring. hehe. I haven't worked at the second job since December anyway, because we have had the winter from hell!!! Last week, I was supposed to go, but it snowed for over a week straight. OH MY GOD, I haven't seen this much snow in YEARS!!! Kind of funny because when I first moved to Nevada, I thought I could throw out my winter clothes. I thought the whole state was hot like Vegas. Silly me!!!

I think I'm going to call my second job and ask them if they plan to fire me since I don't come to work! *snicker* yeah, I'm not that lucky! Good thing, since that second job financed my Josh trip last summer!

Paranoid much?

on January 28, 2008 - 1:02am

I know I haven't posted in awhile...not much going on, except work, which we all know is definitely NOT exciting!!!

I didn't sleep well on Saturday. Kind of a long story. Part of our job is to collect drug screens for the local companies when they are hiring new people, or if there are accidents, etc. Anyway, there is one company that we do actually perform a 'preliminary' screen for so they can 'put the guys to work right away!' Anyway, on Saturday morning, we had 2 guys from this company come in, and I performed the tests. of them tested positive. I reported the results and faxed them to the company. After I was home from work for about 45 minutes, I got a call with the question, 'am I sure I didn't mix the samples up?' Well....I was pretty sure I didn't because, 1) I'm paranoid about that and 2) I've been doing this long enough to double check names on samples before I run them to make sure I'm doing it right. Anyway, the person who tested positive was questioning it because he swears he doesn't do drugs. So he went back to the company and they allowed him to come back to submit another sample in the afternoon. The thing is, the test we do is 'preliminary' and not really intended for anything other than medical purposes...and there is always a sample sent to a reference lab that IS intended to be used for pre-employment screening etc.

WTH? I thought these companies are concerned about safety? I should say, the main industry here is gold mining...which can be a dangerous job...which is why they are supposedly testing people for drugs.

Anyway, I couldn't sleep on Saturday because all I kept thinking about was, did I do it right? When I came back to work I found out the rest of the story, and the tech who worked in the daytime repeated the 'questionable' sample, and got the same results I did. So obviously I did it right.

But I was paranoid all day long about it. Maybe paranoid isn't exactly the right word....conscientious? Yeah, I like that better. ;)

People are funny....

Stange creatures, we human beings are. What is it about us that makes us ignore things within ourselves, but pick at things in everyone else? And why is it, the very things we pick at in others are the things we see in ourselves that we would rather not see?

OK, here's what happened that has made me reflect on this.

First, a bit of 'background' information. In our lab, we have an employee who is chronically late. Every day. I used to get really upset about this because many times, she has been in the position of being the person that we night-shift techs rely on to arrive in order to collect samples from the patients in the morning. Well, I'm over it. I have been for quite some time because it's a losing battle, for one thing, and I wish to choose my battles, so to speak. The other thing is, there is already plenty of negative energy in this place, and I refuse to contribute to it anymore, if I can absolutely help it.

I am completely unlike this in that I am compulsively early. All the time. Drives me nuts to be late for ANYTHING!

OK, so here's what happened Friday morning that got me thinking about this. This particular employee (who I will call 'A') was supposed to arrive at work at 5 am. (OK, I agree, 5 am is too early to be awake, much less functional, but that's the schedule!) Well, she didn't show up until almost 5:30. She came in all apologetic, and said she's really trying not to be so late anymore etc. I said it was ok, not to worry, I'm over it. forward almost 3 hours later. Another employee (who I will call 'Y') was scheduled for 8 am. 8 o'clock came and went and about 8:15, 'A' asked me if I had taken a call from 'Y' regarding if she was going to be late.

I dang near bit my tongue off in order to prevent myself from saying something I knew I would regret! So many sarcastic things ran through my mind...'Isn't that the pot calling the kettle black?' I could have looked at my watch and made a comment regarding how late 'A' had been that morning.

All I did was shake my head and say, "nope, haven't heard from her." What could I say without sounding like a b*tch? I know 'A' could tell I wanted to say something, because I know I had a smirk on my face.

What's the point of all this? I don't know if there is one, except that I found it to be a hilarious situation. And I know I do the same kind of stupid crap all the time myself.

Some things just plain bite!!!!

I really wish we could be informed of stuff sooner...know what I mean?

I just logged in and read on the news page....

Some guy named "Josh Groban" is going to be a mere 3 1/2 hours away from me in Utah at the end of January...and I have to work that weekend. *sobs*

Now, if I had known about this, I COULD have asked for the weekend off....I COULD have tried to save up a bit of money for a little road trip...I COULD have done a lot of things.

Oh, heck, I guess it's not THAT BIG A DEAL. I'm just disappointed, especially in light of the fact that I didn't get to go to NYC. :( I'll just have to make Joivana see him FOR me! hahaha

Major Storm!

It is SNOWING!!!! Huge fluffy flakes. I love snow, but not when I have to drive in it. Frankly, I would rather stay home and snuggle with Josh...ERRR....I mean with my husband...yeah, that's it...that's what I really meant. ;)

The snow started about a half hour before I left for work, and the road was TERRIBLE already! And I'm supposed to go to my second job this weekend. I'm thinking that's not going to happen! We NEED the money, but it's not worth risking my life over, that's for sure.

I was going to post something on New Year's...but I couldn't think of anything to post. I'm such a fool sometimes. *grin*

2007 was such an AWESOME year!!! I saw Josh live for the first time in April, then 3 times in a week in August. I was lucky enough to have a Josh encounter in which I made a total fool of myself. Thank God, I'm sure it wasn't the highlight of the 'Awake' tour for I don't have to worry that he remembers me. hehe Maybe if I ever get another opportunity, I won't act like such a dork!!! Oh, that's a freakin' lie...I'm sure I will!!! I'm just a natural DORK!!!!

But probably the best thing is all the AWESOME friends I've made this last year in FOJG! People I've never met in person, who are as dear to me as anyone could be, and others who I have met that I can't wait to see again!

YUP, it was an awesome year!!!
