Saturday at work (and other things)

September 22, 2018 0 By pygmie1

It’s not unusual for me to work on the weekends (and it’s hard to say no given I’m paid extra for it).  What’s unusual this Saturday is I’m in the office with the entire team.  I’m sitting.  I’m working.  I’m waiting to see how I can be of service as they battle towards their deadlines.  Not complaining, but I’d rather be in bed.  So tired these last few weeks and I’m going to be pissed as hell when I get my energy back, most likely after my sister-in-law leaves to head back to the Netherlands.  Isn’t that just the way of things?

Can’t seem to wake up lately.  Tired all the time.  We got a new Sleep Number bed this past Wednesday and it’s too early to tell if it’s going to help or hinder me, sleep and health wise.  I wake up a lot, but I don’t know if that’s just going to be the new normal now that I don’t have pain killers to help take the edge off at night or it’s just something I’ve always done (at least according to the sleep study of a decade or so ago I wake up a lot during the night).

Two pieces of Pizzicato pizza, likely going to put me to sleep in the next thirty minutes or so.

And now I’m stuck.  Again.  Got my code working but appears permissions are the next problem.  I don’t have the right permissions.  And it’s not a high priority (today) to get them.  Oh well.  I’ll wait.  Just wish I could put my headphones on and listen to Hulu or something (you don’t have to watch, but it keeps me occupied–I’ve grown old in my age in that I no longer have even the tiniest bit of interest in interacting with other human beings despite some part of me still being aware this is important).  Since I have plenty of time to write today (in between coding, R&D, team support, etc.).

So onto politics.  This whole thing about the supreme court applicant has gotten to be a joke.  On both sides.  Fuck, I’m too tired to say anything intelligent about it.  I should probably get off here for now.  No brain power, no point.  Not the best use of anyone’s time.
