Life: And in other news...
So, in case anyone was wondering why I'm almost nonexistent right now, here's a summary. Not complaining, just explaining.

My last day off, (not holiday day off, but "not going to work and doing work" day off, like the traditional yet mythical 'weekend') was the 11th of April.

My next day off? Probably not until May 9th. Yeah. So, 27 straight days, no weekends, no Sundays, nothing. Right now averaging 11 actual hours a day, that's going to continue going up until the 30th, culminating in possibly a 16 hour day, and then hopefully get a bit more reasonable hours-wise after the 2nd.

What this means in general is for the next while I'm in survival mode, focusing on staying sane (which is turning out to be a vastly huger challenge than anticipated :-/) and basic living things like cleaning and sleeping.

I'll be keeping up on Supernatural because otherwise I'll get spoiled to death and that would be more depressing than I could handle. However, it's a real bear to get detailed reaction posts done before the next episode, so things might get sparse for the next couple. Which is extremely frustrating because the reaction posts are my only creative outlet right now, and these episodes are the ones needing the most brain, whereas I'm scraping the bottom of the scraps bucket in that department. :-P

Anyway. Not complaining, but that's why I'm not around so much right now. Will be trying to catch up on comments and f-list later today.



Also, on a side note I've discovered that Series 5 of Doctor Who is available on Canadian iTunes. I won't be able to watch any of them 'til sometime in May or June, but between that and buying the Supernatural episodes each week, my iTunes budget is beyond toast. :-P

Jeez crap! What the heck do you do? I'm sure there's laws against that kinda work regime. Just saying.

I have the vague feeling that you've been on a crazy work schedule all year round, despite ostensibly having "up" and "down" periods.... keep sane! And, if you manage it, even healthy!

Yeah, kind of. The next week or so is the most insane though.

Holy crap! And I whined when I had to work 14 days straight! Hope they pay you extra!

There's usually a bonus when the final figures are figured for sales etc. I'm typing this on my bonus from last year :-)

Help for the sanity, even though I suspect you have it bookmarked;) Hang in there you. *Passes caffeine, chocolate and jalepenos*

1st: fudgepuddles!!! is still the best tag ever :D

2nd: sending patience and work-goes-quickly-wow-so-much-got-done! your way :D

3rd: also sending some sanity (needs a separate number :) ) I'm not using mine currently, so borrow it for a bit :)

It reminds me whenever I'm being a drama llama to look for the silly in things, and it helps.

Send brains. Not big ones. I want to hand them to clients so they'll stop doing infuriating things.

3rd: also sending some sanity (needs a separate number :) ) I'm not using mine currently, so borrow it for a bit :)

Sanity is cool sometimes, who knew?

Tax season is made of suckage. I hope your sanity remains intact. *hugs*

One. More. Week. And then Ketchup month. And then Business tax season. And then year end. And then major project X... *headdesk*

This next week is the worst hell though, and I suspect (TMI) my personal biology will be adding to the fun with impeccable timing. :-P (/TMI) Yay.

Oh dear. That's even worse. *sympathizes with you*

My mom has worked for H&R Block ('merican tax) so I understand. Take care of yourself, and GET SOME SLEEP!

Sleep would be awesome.
