Finally ...

Well, eight and a half days later, it looks like we have power back up!

We eventually threw in the towel last week and moved into a hotel for the weekend, but were pretty pissed when the lights still weren't back last night. Hopefully everything is fixed now. I wonder how much spam is in my main e-mail box after 8 days of not being able to get in there ...

Dang ...

OK ... so I've had to be AFK pretty much all day ... but I'm back up to 200 posts on the Friends List to catch up on. OUCH. I'd really like to get some sleep. And that doesn't even begin to address how far behind on reading the LibraryThing Google Group I am at this point.

Once I get "caught up" I'll also have three (or perhaps four) book reviews to do, and I'm probably going to just blow off bothering to review Over The Hedge and Hoot (the latter was, by the way, very cute ... much to my surprise) since nobody really gives a shit what I think about movies (as if anybody cared what I thought about books, for that matter!).

Bummed ...

I discovered yesterday that I was getting paid an hourly amount that was half of what I thought it was ... where I got the higher figure stuck in my head (it's in my notes from the orientation), I don't know, but all my hours from the past couple of weeks were at the "serving" rate, which sort of sucks.

And speaking of stuff that sucks, I heard back from the cruise boat gig and they hired somebody else for the "fill-in" bartender. I'm currently thinking not-nice thoughts about those people too.
