Weird Abounds

I had a horrible headache Tuesday. I had an Aleve and two Excedrins for breakfast that morning, chased with an Alka-Seltzer so I wouldn't hurl it. I kept dosing the bad head during the day from my briefcase pharmacopia, so I was pretty loopy by mid-afternoon. Luckily, I didn't have to go anywhere after work except to the gas station. They think I'm fairly loopy anyway, so they didn't notice a thing. Thankfully, the headache -- and the cure -- was all gone when I woke up Wednesday morning.

Wednesday was pretty weird, too. I've made it a point lately to stop killing myself at work. I do what I can do and don't sweat the rest. Period. Serenity is the key. At. All. Costs. So when the Boss Lady came into my office yesterday morning and sat down and asked if I had a few minutes, I was thinking to myself, "Oh, shit, what's she going to ream me for now?" She shocked the holy bejesus out of me by saying "Thank you for all your hard work" and "I'm giving you a raise." Bipolar at its finest, people. If she was aiming to shock me into a coma, she damn near succeeded. She not only gave me my paycheck a day early, but sealed it into an envelope with some cash and a sticky note saying that since my raise isn't effective until August 1, she wanted me to have a little extra money. After all the pure crap I've waded through in recent months, it's a wonder I didn't just fall flat on the floor and start rolling around and speaking in tongues like one of those Rapture ladies. Do you suppose Skank Girl would have scraped me up? Probably not. It's not in her job description.

So anyway, I took the circuitous route to saying simply that I feel not half bad today. And that I've always loved this song and felt like hearing it today. If you're up for it, click the play button.

And ... Happy Hump Day!

I hear 'ya, /t. And yep, I missed the boat on Hump Day. Happy, Happy a day late!:-)

Oh, Lord, Galen, I kinda-sorta knew it was Thursday, so I don't know why I thought it was Hump Day. Duh. Although, there's no rule saying it can't be celebrated two days in a row.:-)

One of my all time favorite songs!

And an unexpected raise and bonus! Will wonders never cease... you deserve it, SJ!


Serena said...

It's one of my all-time favorites, too, Quid. You and I have excellent taste in music and books, my dear. The raise was so completely unexpected that it's a wonder I didn't have a heart attack on the spot. Of course, if she ever discovers my blog and the posts in which she's starred, she'll yank it back.:-)

Widdat raise, you can pay to have Skank Girl pest-controlled!

I'm afraid it would take a gazillionaire or something to be able to afford to pest-control that girl, Skunk. Shoot, her butt alone would take about a year's salary.:-)
