It's good to have goals.

The good thing about working nights is that since you've already been awake for fourteen hours or so, it's okay to start drinking at 7 in the morning. I used to work the night shift in Boise, Idaho, at a semiconductor plant that employed about 15% of the city's population. There were so many night shifters in that town that there was a bar that opened at 7 am for us. Aah, that was nice. It was also interesting to talk to customers that weren't Micron employees. "Wow! You get started early, huh?"

Oklahoma City is way too bible-belt for a bar to be swingin' at 7 a.m., so I'll be drinking it up at home alone this morning. I just finished day seven of a seventy hour work week, so I'm ready to kick off the weekend right. Woohoo!

(Y'all should know that by "drinking it up" and "kicking off the weekend right", what I really mean is "falling asleep after two drinks because I totally can't handle my liquor").

My main goal this weekend ('cause y'all know, I have to have goals/plans/LISTS in order to do anything) is to relax and spend some time on "me" stuff (translate: let the anger go and stop cleaning already). Also translate that as: get some freaking knitting done. And while knitting: try not to think about what it means to have RELAXATION as an item on a to-do list.
