I'm Whupped

I hope everyone had a nice Christmas, I certainly did, even against my protestations, the wife made DAMN sure.

As to being tired, since last Friday, I have put in 23 and a half hours of overtime.

I had Christmas day off and Monday was time and a half because of the Temp agency. I just got off a twelve hour shift and am grateful, I was fully convinced it was going to be a true double, 16 hours then turn around and be back at seven in the morning with about six hours of sleep and I wasn't looking forward to that one bit.

So, now ya know why it is so quiet around here, I was in bed at eight o:clock last night because I knew today was going to be a long one.

I ain't really bitching,just tired. I am damn glad I have a job at all but there has to be a happy medium somewhere!

Eventually, I will get some time to catch up with what is going on, in the mean time;
Fuck Newt Gingrich.

Thanks fer stopping by.

Update, Bonus Round out of the eight guy's I work with throughout the day, five of those motherfuckers have been passing around a nasty head cold.
It is a matter of time and every. fucking. time. I get a head cold, it goes directly to my chest and stays there.
Mark my words, you will soon see me whining and bitching about being sick.
Rotten sonsabitches, stay the fuck home.It's like a fucking Daycare center around there.

Update two;
Another fourteen hours today.
I thought I was tired last night, HA!


  1. Take 2 to 3 grams of vitamin C (in capsules if you can find them as they are easier on your system) every day and the effects of whatever cold virus you pick up will be much less.

    Always worked for me and after 10 years of doing this (and taking a gram a day when well) I never get colds anymore.

    Try it. It's the best self defense once you've been exposed.

    The only other defense is staying at home when the assholes defend their right to come to work and make you sick.

    Hope yer hols were terrif!

    Merry merry to the Mrs.!


  2. Go get some Airborne and take it. People say it doesn't work. Fuck them, I say it does.

    Suzan's right as well. Vitamin C, citrus juice, etc. A lot of it.

    The vitamin C bit does seem to work-I bring a couple of oranges to work with me every day for breaks/lunch, and add capsules if someone is slinging snot at work. It works for me.

  4. My head colds go straight to my chest, too.Start with Hall's Mentholyptus, chicken broth, Ruffles if throat hurts at all, Pseudophedrin only, Guaifenisin (SP?) for chest. I drink lots of orange juice. Nothing but these things stop the race to my chest. Usually, my ears get closed and throat is tight and sore. I feel for you.

    I never get the pseudoephedrine and the guaifenisin in combination. Keep body warm with clothes and sleep in the cold. I never can run around in the house barefoot or wear sandals once I am ill.LOL...I know you are not wearing sandals!

  5. Chicken soup. Lots of it.

    Oil of oregano under the tongue.

    And then it's wait it out.

    I've had it since Saturday and it's just starting to break up now.

    Yeah,fuck Newt and the rest of the ass clowns.

    The voters of Massachusetts owe the rest of us a huge apology for Barney Frank, Ted Kennedy, John Kerry, and others.

  7. OMG! There is nothing like working w/such sorry jackasses that are sick as dogs. They touch papers and everything else they hand to you with their microbes. Then you can take it home to the rest of the family. Tis the season!
