The last couple months haven’t had much to post about. Life has been somewhat normal. Work-wise and home-wise. Last week I had to replace my computer’s portable bluray drive, some of the “teeth” on it’s spindle broke off. While I was waiting for the new (and a little more fancier one), I used my computer’s optical drive for regular Dvds…then it stopped working, so within a few days of Dell having me try a couple things, then when those didn’t work, they put in an order to send me a new drive (which hasn’t come yet, but I do have my new portable bluray drive now.
Vacation got pushed back because of The Rona. Instead of going June 23-24, we got our hotel reservations pushed back to July 28-29. Found out this morning that CP announced their opening day – July 9 (2 months from when they should have opened, and would have if not for The Rona). Yes, things will be different with the health protocols, but it’s still a getaway)
This past week has been short, I only had 3 days (13 hours total), and I just got next week’s schedule, and I’m honestly enthusiastic for it. It’s almost like an old normal week, the first once before corona.
The other day while watching the season 16 finale, I came to a conclusion…Schmitt is like the new George
Originally, I was scheduled to have Easter Sunday off, but the schedule was changed, and I now work 10-4. I welcome the hours because this will already be a short enough check.
With our Easter Sunday hours this year being 11-7, this means I’ll do something I haven’t done at work since starting at BK…Open
For the first time since the Corona started we were actually busy at work…😲. It was like an old NORMAL day
But, our awesome assistant manager, Dave posted so they don’t have to cut anyone he personally (though working) won’t take any compensation for THREE MONTHS
I am getting tired of the outblown Corona Virus. The media is making it seam worse…and the people….stock piling stuff like it’s the Armageddon.
Thankfully I have the next two days off, so I don’t have deal with people <3
I normally don’t post about the shows I like, but after all of the backlash of this past Thursday’s goodbye to Alex Karev, I want to get my thoughts out there.
Like many, I assumed they were killing him off because he was so radio silent, but unlike many, I see this as a fitting exit. It doesn’t change the progress he made as a character if you really think about it.
Alex reached out to his ex for his best friend’s benefit when she needed it, and in that reach out he found out some things Izzie should have told him. Yes, he signed off his right to the embryos and told her she could do what she wanted with them, so <strong>legally</strong> she didn’t have to tell him she had his kids, but normal Izzie (the way she was before she was written off) would have.
The episode in a whole was beautiful. It was a great goodbye, and it had nostalgia with archive footage of Arizona, George, Izzie, Cristina & Derek. Also, with Alex alive and well, if Justin Chambers would be willing sometime down the road (and maybe for the series final) he could guest-star (and not just as a ghost or flashback like what would happen with so many of the other past stars)
It’s on par with how Callie, Arizona, Burke, Cristina & April have been written out – they could appear in the future on a guest spot, actor-permitting – just as Addison has a few times in the past.
Today was another workday…and I’m glad tomorrow isn’t.
For most of the day it wasn’t busy, and in between orders in the afternoon, I did get the day’s dishes done, but between 3:30 & 4….it was a busy bitch….and it didn’t help that management had her headset off and so I didn’t get any help except for stuff dropped into the fryer when I called for it…..but still.
Today at work it was like the attack of the idiots. Not alot in the orders really stand out….but I SHOULD have been off at 4 (and didn’t get to leave until 15 after because the next shift person chose to not even waltz through the door until 5 after, then we still had a few orders, so management couldn’t get my drawer pulled on time.
I intended to post yesterday, but I never got around to it.
Work has been normal, though stand-out moments to really mention, which is why I haven’t posted. Yesterday I worked, though I felt bloaty and heartburny all day, which I had contributed with starting a new breakfast cereal (strawberry rice crispies), figuring it didn’t mix well with my morning pills, so after work I bought a new ceral (trix); and put the rice crispies in a bag to sometime get marshmallows and make rice crispy treats.
Yesterday evening was when it really hit me….the flu. Chills, body aches, vomiting and diarrhea.
Luckily today (and after sleeping almost 9 hours – which is LONG for me) I feel much better
