(no subject)

I woke up at 3:30 today, had to deal with an overflowing toilet, no one being around to give me a ride for work (had to be there at 4) and then kicked myself for the first several hours I was work for sleeping so fucking long (regular part of the insomniac's sleep cycle. No sleep, no sleep, intermittent sleep, no sleep, coma sleep...and repeat. It hasn't been a big deal for me to sleep for 20 hours or so after a several week of one to two hour nights. It never 'catches up'... it just makes it worse) and just got into an ever more foul mood regarding people and how... disgusting they are.

But it lightened up, I had a few goofy conversations, beat up Tom the stock guy with a shopping cart, was silly at Tricia, got offered a promotion, got home about 11:30, finally had something to eat and then talked to Karl for a few hours.

I think that I'm going to take the promotion, or rather... say yes to Emily, tell her that I'd like to be available for it.
It's more money, steadier hours and if nothing else I'll at least learn a lot of things that will be big pluses in my favor when I move back to hardlines... not if... WHEN.
I refuse to be stuck over in softlines forever. If that looks like it's going to happen and I'm miserable, I'll let them know that I refuse to be miserable just for a paycheck. It's just one of those things.

I haven't really completely made up my mind yet. I think I need to ask a few people some questions... but there's no one to really ask who doesn't have a really big mouth and I don't think blabbing at a bunch of people about getting offered a promotion when I'm not a 'permanent' employ yet won't win me any happy votes.

I'm a lil flummoxed. But I'm looking at taking it.
A raise for the 90 days being up. A raise for the promotion. Benefits in three months instead of 9....
I dunno. I won't be miserable for a paycheck. But I need to make more money than I am. I need a car. I need movement. I need to move out of here.

And hey, if I can just pull down $2 grand a month and give it all to Karl he'll let me live there rent free!

hehe. ooooh that Karl.

Lie on the bed, Stand on my head, open your eyes for daddy

New thingies to watch... Das Boot, Vertigo, Aeon Flux (the longer episodes plus the much better shorts from Liquid Television) and Brain Candy.

I'm pretty sure Billy Joel came through my line today. He was using a fake accent so he sounded like a kind of lame tongued cockney guy... but I'm pretty it was simply a ruse given how... suspcious and shify eyed he was the whole time.

Either that or the way I was staring at him made him nervous.

I just never knew Billy Joel was *that* short.
