Well. Made the last of the pool night's for the year worth it. Think I rolled into RN's around... 1130p and finally left at 0230. Had a great time. We went swimming and lounging in the pool (after I cleaned it, of course. Never put a swimming pool under trees. Yeah, the shades nice. Having to remove all the leaves, branches, acrons and other debris is not, however.)
Took a while to clean it as it has been windy for the past couple of days... so there were tons of leaves and acorns in the pool. Did get it all cleaned up. Did get in... and it felt so good cuz it was so fucking hot yesterday!
Drinking Coronas... made kabobs for chow, which were... Oh. My. God. delicious. Sat around and bs'd and generall had a good time. In the wee'r morning hours we had a blanket on the ground near the pool. Had the tiki lanterns burning. Had cold beer... 'twas really nice. Did a little bump and grind to some Marvin Gaye that was playing on her iPhone. 'Twas a good time.
I dozed off for a bit... then got up and got in the pool again. But... eventually, all I could do was yawn so it was time to call it a night as I still had a good bit of a drive ahead of me to get home.
So... it's back to work tonight. I should be off tonight since it's a holiday, but between administration and the union? Can't do that anymore. Fucking sucks. I think I'm going to put in for the holiday on Veteran's Day and let the union grieve it when admin marks it as vacation time instead of holiday time... see where it goes. Somebody's gotta do it... and I want my fucking holidays off.
I suspect they will lose the grievance, though... which is why I'm quite annoyed that the union didn't do the simple and easy thing of tweaking the language so as to prevent admin from pulling this nonsense. Would've probably taken... less than 5 mins. But... they didn't do that. I have no idea why cuz everyone was pissed about it... but yeah. $$$$$$$$$$$. Let's get yet another raise and don't worry about anything else. (Basically)
My nephew's Snapchatting me... it's pouring rain and hailing at his house. He was sending video of the neighbor's car... a convertible... with the top down, taking on all this rain. He said this neighbor is a huge asshole and so, he finds all of this quite amusing. Nature's karma, I guess.
Tonight is the return to work, as I said. Going to remember to bring my notes today and start writing. Or sorting out where I'm going with it at least. Making the notes a little more formatted and legible and developing a story board for what I have now. Which... the notes kinda are the story board, but whatever. Going to get it all set up so it make sense. The opening bit is already playing in my head and has been since last week. I think I have 10 or 12 missions that I can write about... but obviously, if nothing significant happened in the mission, it'll just be mentioned in passing...
Sorta need to remember the notes, though. Sorta didn't last week... and then I was so disappointed.
And... just need to get through the week, right? Four nights after tonight... yes, I am counting. Have no plans for next weekend, yet and well... I just need to get there and we'll sort out the other stuff when the time comes.
No Sam tonight, so that always makes the night a little more enjoyable. Although Robby said he'd noticed a change in Sam... that he doesn't seem quite so fucking uptight about every little nonsensicle thing. I dunno, though. It's true he's not harassed me about a single thing since he returned from his near death experience... but that doesn't mean he won't or that he's necessarily changed.
He's still lying to people as Alex (quite loudly) pointed out last week... so he's not changed that much.
And it's still much nicer there when he's not there. So... I vote for him not being there.
Well... suppose I should go make some further progress on my laundry. I do have a pile and I only just got the first load stuck in the washer. Probably outta get after that so I don't have to wear a wet uni shirt to work.
