Tired/ Wired

Once I got home a little under three hours ago, I was tired and wired at the same time.

It's possible. (Like being exhausted and horny, though right now I'm neither.)

I was worried earlier that I'd be too wired for sleep, but I'm happy to say I'm fading towards rest. And that I've had food. Small victories, you see.

Long week 'cause of work, and the work week's not over yet. I'll work a bit tomorrow, and after that go to the annual company meeting, because I'll REALLY have earned that dinner by then.

I'm glad Thanksgiving will be time off no matter what, unless on Wednesday the 24th we heard from Donald Trump that he wanted us and only us to build the Trump Dome Over Everything, and we had to have the plan ready by Friday. No pressure.*

* I can say this because we will never have Donald Trump as a client. Or, to be more specific, I'd be mightily surprised if he deigned to notice us. Or deigned to notice the northwestern part of the U.S.

Mallrats phraseology

This will be a slight case of Out-Of-Context Theater, but what the hell:

While in the office bathroom I got thinking of how carefully I track my department's Petty Cash, because I'm terrified of getting it wrong.

The thought crossed my mind Like the escalator, I respect AND FEAR money.

Me 2 (B&W)

This is entry #4,961.

Soon, a little over six years from where I started, I'm going to hit 5,000 LiveJournal entries.

This makes me genuinely excited and hopeful.

Here's to blogging. It's led me to interesting thoughts and interesting people. I miss it when I don't do it. I notice when I do it less (like this week, a high-energy-use week at work, for instance). I've happily surprised myself more than once with what's come out of me while doing it. Blogging reveals much about the blogger, both to readers and to the blogger if s/he's paying attention. A lot of me is in these words, and I try to keep them interesting words.

Like Ray Bradbury looking over his room of bric-a-brac for the inspiration for his next story, I wonder: what will Entry #5,000 be about?
