13th day in a row of working. Will this stop after 17 days? Probably not.
Is 23 days in a row going to be the cut off? Yes. Because I am going to tell my boss that I need the 26th off so that I am not running around like a crazy person trying to run all of my pre-vacation errands last minute. But also because I need a day that is not a Saturday or Sunday free so that we can go to Hot Doug’s one final time.
I got a soft rejection, like a “We really liked and considered you but we went with this other person. We’re going to keep you in mind and on file for the future though,” at the job I interviewed for which is encouraging.
It is nice to do anything and get encouraging feedback. So now I have the submissions page for The Toast and also another job I really want to apply for in my open browser tabs and if I am not dead from exhaustion by Tuesday night, I am going to force myself to do both things.
I just worked almost 10 hours finishing the proofreading a nightmare of a report and my eyes have gone all spotty because well over half of the text had been highlighted with bright yellow in Word.
All I’ve done since the 3rd is work and get bummer news and I think I might have to work all of next weekend too. But I have racked up a decent amount of overtime and three weeks from right now I’ll be at DisneyWorld. And I’m going to take the 26th off to not do the rest of my pre-vacation shopping/errand running at the last minute and also so Rob and I can go to Hot Doug’s one final time.
Now I am going to shovel a bowl of clam chowder into my face and go to sleep.

P- I don’t hate school! My big gripe is that it’s so expensive.
Q- There’s this one beard-y, dreamboat airline worker who makes excellent BBQ that I am really into. His name is Rob. We kind of live together and stuff. Saturday is going to be 4 and a half years of us dating.
R- I’m really into See Ya, Sucker by Modern Baseball right now.
S- Once I found 20 bucks floating in the lazy river at Holiday World when I was in grade school and I felt a guy reach from behind me to try to take it out of my hand. So I elbowed him in the nards. That guy ended up being my dad. I do not regret doing it now because my dad is an asshole.
T- I am 27 and people tend to think I’m in the 22-25 range.
U- I am already curled up in bed. I just wish that dude from Q would get home from work already for snugglin’ purposes.
Everything is garbage and I need to learn better than to expect good things.
Because I am going to have to work all weekend again. I straight up said I absolutely would not do another 18 hour weekend.
Also, the thing I have to work on has been ready for a week and a half. I could have started on Monday afternoon. But nobody bothered to tell me it was ready.
I am gonna milk this overtime thing hard.
And I haven’t heard anything yet. I had a week gap between my phone one and the email to schedule the in-person but I’m still antsy about it.
I’m just going to live my life assuming I didn’t get it and maybe I’ll be pleasantly surprised later on.
Original U.S. Air Date: 15 August 2003
This episode begins with Blacksoul Ash Midnight trying to steal Jimmy’s soul through the power of goth lyrics (adapted from Edgar Allen Poe and Sylvia Plath) and candlelight.
this episode makes me angry because JIMMY NEVER TRIED TO “TAME” ASHLEY SHE JUST MADE HIM LOOK LIKE A BAD GUY
Yeeeeah, Jimmy seemed pretty okay with dating Goth Ashley, even if, shockingly, he thought pre-everyone-hates-you Ashley was more his style. Ashley just turns the drama levels up to 11, instead of just shrugging and accepting that she doesn’t feel the same way about her 8th grade boyfriend anymore. This will happen, dear readers, and you don’t need to write an angsty poem in someone’s yearbook to commentate the occasion (although, let’s be real, you probably will, as we all do, it’s just human nature).
You have to appreciate (I use the term loosely here) that it’s her stuff with Jimmy that’s the center of the action, not Craig realizing, with some horror, that it’s quite easy for him to act like his father. Maybe it’s Craig that’s being tamed?! Hmm?!
My very favorite thing about this episode is that when Craig has to dress up as a controlling jerk, the costume he comes up with is his dad’s jacket and suit coat.
