injury numero uno
Tuesday. 11.6.07 8:43 am
I got my first work-related injury today. It was serious enough that I had to fill out an incident report {which is actually more annoying than the injury itself} and the manager sent me home. I still get paid for the rest of the day because I was injured at work and sent home. I guess that's another thing I need to get used to, along with the law-required breaks.

What happened was a pallet got stuck on the ramp while they were taking it off the truck. All 5 of us had to push it to get unstuck and back up in the truck. After it was unstuck, I took a step back and my leg went right through the hole between the ramp and the edge of the truck. My ass is what stopped me. I now have a nice scratched bruise on the backside of my thigh, right under my ass. It's about 5 inches long and about 2 inches wide, at the biggest point; it's scratched, bruised and swollen. Luckily it's not bleeding. I would have never been able to get the blood out of the white pants I was wearing.

According to the 4 people who saw me fall, I'm not the first person to have done that. Apparently they all have too. It's sort of an initiation ... I'm now an official truck/stocker employee. I definitely bruised the muscle because every time it flexes {basically whenever I move} I can feel the tension. I need to call my boss tomorrow just to let her know that I'm fine. I don't have to work again until Saturday, but I'm supposed to be helping Jean move her stuff out over the next few days and I'm also going out on Friday because it's payday. I guess I'll just have to see how I feel.

Sitting hurts. Once I'm in a comfy position with as little pressure on my leg as possible, I'm okay. As soon as I go to move to a different position, the pain hits. I'll be fine though. This is not the worst injury I've had. It's just in an inconvenient spot. It should be healed completely in a month.

So now, basically, I'm not going to be doing much in the way of anything the next few days. Walking involves limping because of the swelling, I can't bend my leg correctly. I'd use crutches to help, if I had them. But I don't and I can't afford them, so I limp.

Ha, I was complaining about having nothing to talk about; now I can update on my injury every couple of days.

I have to be at work in 9 hours. I don't plan on going to bed for another 4. I have to work until noon tomorrow and I know that I'm going to be dead tired once I get off. But that's okay, I have three days off afterwards.

I'm not going to say that I like my job, but it's better than the restaurant. I have the muscle tone back in my legs, but I haven't lost any weight. I'm moving around quite a bit, I'm lifting stuff and I'm eating less, but I still haven't lost weight. Ugh.

I get my first paycheck on Friday. It's not going to be a whole lot because I only worked about 28 hours. I don't think my next paycheck will be any more because I'm working about the same amount of hours this week. I want full time hours, but they didn't hire me for that, nor do they have the extra hours to fit me in full time. Maybe once the season is over I'll be able to stay on full time.

Ha, I thought that I would have more to write about once I got a job, but alas, I was wrong.

Chuck and Heroes is on tonight. Two shows I'm completely addicted to. Two shows I absolutely love.

Oh! Steve is already moved out and Jean is leaving on Wednesday! Which means I get my room!!! I'm going to work on painting it Thursday and Friday and I'll be airing it out Saturday and Sunday so hopefully by Monday I'll be able to start moving stuff in. I'm looking forward to getting at least some of my privacy back. I'll be able to shut a door and keep people out. I won't have to worry about inhaling smoke on a regular basis because I'll be able to shut the door. I'll have my own little cove.

Alrighty, that's it for tonight. I can't think of anything else to write about.

so tired
Sunday. 11.4.07 9:37 pm
I didn't have to go in to work till noon. I was glad that I could sleep the extra time. I didn't really want to get up at 3am. Acccording to the schedule, I was supposed to be there till 5pm. Instead, when I get there, I'm told it was a typo and I'm needed till 8pm. More money for me. I really don't mind staying, but I do appreciate a heads up before I get there and assume I'm going home when the schedule says I'm going home.

I work tomorrow at 10am and again on Tuesday at 4am. Then I'm off for three days and I work again on Saturday.

I work with nice people. There's this guy, Steven, who works there ... he's kinda cute. I have no idea how old he is or anything about him. Just what department he works in and that his name is Steven. Maybe tomorrow I'll find out his age.

Ugh. I'm so tired I have no idea what else to say. I'll write again maybe tomorrow.

either 4 or 12
Saturday. 11.3.07 8:50 pm
Tomorrow I go in to work either at 4am or 12pm. I need to call at 3am to find out which it is.

Today I was off and I was able to sleep in. Which I took full advantage of. I slept till noon. 'Twas nice.

My sister had a concert at 4:30pm that my mom and me went to. It was the honors choir; one that she had to audition for. They were good. The conductor was skinnier than any other conductor I've seen and she was an elderly bouncing stick of energy.

After the concert, we all met up at Applebee's for dinner. The food was good, but expensive. Part of it was my fault because I ordered two Bahama Mama's which were $7.50 a piece. They were worth the money though. Rum hardly has an effect on me and with it in that little amount, it didn't even give me a buzz. I could totally go for more alcohol right now.

After that, we stopped at work so that I could buy a futon to put away for when the room is empty. This weekend all employees get 30% off all merchandise, which is why I'm buying the bed at work instead of at Wal-Mart. I probably would have bought it at work either way, but still ... this makes it even cheaper.

Now I'm home. I have my alarm set to 3am so that I can call in and make sure of what time I go in. Other than that, I'm not up to anything. And with that, I'm also out of stuff to say.

tired!
Friday. 11.2.07 4:17 pm
It's 4:17pm. I've been awake for about 13 hours. I worked for 6 hours today. I am tired.

I've stayed up for way longer than 13 hours straight before, even with most of that time taken over with work, but the fact that I only got about 3 hours of sleep before I went in to work probably has something to do with my being tired. It's not my fault though! Well ... yeah, okay, it is a little my fault for not going to bed sooner, but I couldn't help it. I'm not used to going to bed before midnight.

Even when I was living in Tucson, I wasn't going to bed until after midnight. I didn't have to get up until 8 or 9am instead of 3am, but still.

I'm sort of getting used to waking up at that hour. Since I'm not showering till after I get off work, I don't have to get up until about 45 minutes before I need to be there. 3am is still way too early, but it's a job. And going in to work that early means that I don't have to worry about the general public until the last hour or so of my shift.

It's a fairly easy job, just a lot to remember. I hate having to do truck, but everyone does. It's time consuming, dirty, hot, frustrating and just very annoying. I hope I don't have to do it very often.

I still don't have any friends, but I get along with the people I work with. Only two people are a little creepy, but I don't work with them often.

On another note, my three year anniversary on Nutang is approaching. It's in the middle of next month. I'll be posting about it on the actual day.

Uhhhhm, I think that's it. My brain is not functioning to it's full capacity so I this is the end of today's entry.

regulation and phenomenon
Thursday. 11.1.07 12:39 pm
I have a feeling that going in to work at 4am is going to become my regular schedule. The time I leave varies depending on the day, but it's always a specific time regardless if my assigned work has been finished or not. I don't like leaving my work for someone else to do so I do my best to get it finished before I have to leave. I actually {besides waking up really effing early} prefer to go in that early because I don't have to deal with the public. I only deal with the people who are working the same shift as me. And once I wake up, I'm good to go.

Anywho, last night's Phenomenon was funny. Some of the illusions that people created were "edge of your seat" illusions, but others were just entertaining. Only one person was incredibly dumb and even dumber if he really did think that his "illusion" would be believable. And to the people who did believe him, you're even dumber than he is for being to gullible. At the end of his performance, Criss Angel called him out on it. He told him that if he really did have psychic abilities he would give him $1,000,000 of his own personal money if he could guess what he had in the envelope. That became a fight and it was just so funny! Criss has pretended to be possessed and knows it's not real. Which is why he called the guy out.

The only female on the show did something that Criss Angel has performed where she hides a knife under one of 5 hollowed out paper cylinders and has someone randomly rearrage them while she isn't looking. Then she uses her abilities to feel which one she shouldn't slam her hand down on. Criss commeneded her for being the only female mentalist on the show and coming forth to show that it's not just a guy's world; "the days of a woman in a leotard being shoved into a box are over."

The last performer on the show was just funny. He said that he predicted a fictional murder a month ago and wrote it down on a scroll. Then he picked three random people out of the audience along with one of the three guest celebritites to pick four different things. The way that the people chose it was like a funny version of Clue. It was Tom Hanks with the dresser in Hawaii. The added thing was the time {3:13} which, under a black light, was stamped onto everyone's hands in the audience. It was definitely entertaining. Altogether this week's show was better than last week. I'm looking forward to next week's episode.

Alright, I think that's it for now. I'll write again whenever.
