I think I'm not going to answer the phone tomorrow [ 2006-07-11, 11:52 p.m. ]

I am on pins and needles. I have tomorrow off but...when Diane called work today to ask for her schedule and I asked her how she was doing and if she was ok to come in to work and everything she said this.."I'm going to try". GAHH!!!!!!!!!!!!! You motherfucking know what that means. It means that I could very likely get a phone call tomorrow asking me to come in. I can't deal with talking to anymore people at work, for the most part. I need some alone time, big-time. I like people. Really. But I really can't have that many days in a row of being with people constantly. It drives me batty.

Tracy and I worked it out that we'd work half of the opening shift on Friday so neither one of us has to work a whole shift. We'll both have had only one day off for the week. I really don't know what I would have done this past week without her pitching in like she's been doing. She's been working shifts at our store and at her store the past week.

I really have to keep telling myself that this too shall pass. The question is when. I will be getting four days off in a row next week (Thurs,Fri,Sat and Sunday). I'm pretty certain that I'll get them. I've already made plans with Julie and Tracy to go to this place called The Bucket where Julie loves doing karaoke which I've only done once before at a different place. I plan on getting hammered and just not caring and having a good time. I. Can't. Wait.

I've been noticing lately that my car starts kind of hesitating when I'm driving along in first gear (my car's an automatic Ford Escort). It's like it's a frustrated race car. I passed a guy tonight so I could get to 50mph or so and let my car get the lead out. But, really..those of you who know things about cars..what does that mean for my car? I just had the oil changed, so it ain't that. Any ideas?

My big plans for my day off are watching season 1 of The Office, USA version. I loved the UK version and couldn't imagine watching the USA version but I've watched a bit of it and decided to give it a chance. Also, I'll be doing a couple of mix cds for Julie, for whom I did two mixes back in the Winter and she was raving about listening to them again recently. I love giving the gift of music.
