This is what it looks like when you look up into the inside of a Hot Air Balloon. At least this is what the balloon looked like that *I* went up in! By the way... those propane tanks put out a WHOLE lot more BTU's than your furnace does!
So. I stayed up last night until about 2am. Whoops. Probably not good. And then for some reason the on-call phone wasn't working (got turned off? Ran out of battery power?)... so about 9:30 this morning I got a call on my home phone... (related to "on-call" stuff). Thankfully it wasn't anything I needed to respond to. So... I decided to go ahead and get up, get my shower and start being somewhat productive. I ended up spending about 6 hours detailing the inside of my car. And I almost got done! But... alas... had to deal with another "on-call" issue that required my presence, so I was gone from about 3:45 until about 7:15pm. My co-workers will have to deal with the aftermath of that this coming week. Ya know... I've been pulling on call for about 15 months and have only had to go in twice... and this week I've gotten about 3 times as many phone calls and have had to "go in" twice! Whassup with that? (Someone suggested Spring Equinox?). Oh well. Guess I'll get some overtime.
Which reminds me about an issue that is a pet peeve. Why is it when you have a choice of overtime or comp time. You get over time at 1.5 times your pay, whereas everywhere I've worked, comp-time is a 1:1 thing. So... if I worked 5 hours of overtime, then I would get 7.5 hours of pay, but only get to take 5 hours off if I chose comp time. Something doesn't seem right about that.
Oh well... such is life. And such is life that I only had 1 number right in the Mega Millions lottery last night. *smiles* Guess I'm meant to keep working.
Okay... I'm going to sign off and hope I can be in bed within the next two hours (it's 9:40pm right now).
