Head. So. Fuzzy.

Oot n’ aboot tonight with Gloom. S’cool. Bounced around, here, there.

I’m on day 4 of a 5 day stretch on the boat. It’s kinda annoying. I shouldn’t have been surprised when I saw the schedule, at the interview the chef asked me if I was willing to work full time. I’m scheduled for 38 hours this week and I usually go over by a half hour each day, so there’ s some OT there. Of course my OT rate is only moderately embarrassing so it’s not really that big of a deal. Next week scheduled for 36 hours. This week and next week I’m on the schedule for Wednesday through Sunday. Fsck! I think I’d rather have split days off than work all weekend.

Stuff’s annoying me there. Nothing too bad, really. Nothing compared to the last place I worked, which my friends only know as the shithole. We shitholers had an entire genus of adjectives for fucked up shit specific to that place all based on the name of the company. The worst part of the boat is that the cruises are so short. So I get dishes for 150-300 people in two hours. That would be busy over the course of a night at a land restaurant. Argh.

Okay, I gotta be to work in at noon and I’m riding down. To bed! Weeeeeee!!!


nothing much

Holding steady. Now that summer seems to have arrived the boat is getting busier and busier. Stupid summer.

Speaking of the boat, I don’t think it’s just a summer job any more. But I dunno if I wanna work there permanently because the place dies in the winter. But that’s a few months away so I’m not going to sweat it.

Speaking of sweat, I need to ride downtown soon and I realized on my last ride that I cannot wear my street clothes while riding. It makes me awful sweaty down you-know-where and that can be mightly unpleasant.

I really need to get back onto a diet. I was 235 when I started exercising a few years ago and I weight in at 227 yesterday. Very bad. So (sigh) I need to cut down on pop. :-( I’ve also got to make it into the gym on the days I work. Which sucks. But it’ll give me a chance to take a shower after working, when I’m pretty sticky and icky. Unless I workout before working in which case I’ll still be kinda gummy. Oh well.
