Yo! 'Sup?

So based on Mr Pooh's incredible weight loss, Blondie and I bought the P90X program. Bootcamp was getting to be a LOT of money, and we wanted something we could do without spending a lot and that didn't require 2 miles of walking a day to get to camp and back.

It's been pretty good. I'm very sore, and while I recognize moves in the program that were part of Bikram and bootcamp, they put the moves together in interesting ways. My favorite thus far is the boxing program. Of course when we were supposed to "put sound into it!", I kept saying "Fuck! Work!"

We've been pretty low-key in the meantime. Blondie and I are both working very long hours right now, and are pretty exhausted at night.

We made it to Porn King's house for a Halloween party last night, and it was great catching up with everyone! It was supposed to be a pumpkin carving party, but they were convinced to not give drunk people knives, so we all ended up just hanging out.

Plans for this coming week include 2 overnights for work, and then a celebration on 10/30 that my sites roll into freeze for the year! Yep, come 10/30, you'll find me (and probably 75% of the company) with a flask. Coffee and Bailey's anyone?

I've had a sleep "thing" since I can remember. It's not insomnia, as I have absolutely 0 problem falling asleep. I can fall asleep sitting upright. I can fall asleep with the TV going, while reading a book. I can fall asleep on a hardwood floor with a regular bus going by the window of the floor I'm on (ask Shelbs!) I credit my mom with giving me this "talent". My mom can sleep anywhere. It's kind of funny sometimes.

My problem is that I can't stay asleep once I fall asleep. Every 1.5-2 hours, I'm up. And as soon as I wake up my mind starts racing.

It got worse, a lot worse, when I started working at the Despised Old Job; I blamed it then on fucked up work hours. It's still bad though, and to top it off, I work for someone currently who doesn't like to do his job and I end up having to cover.

Case in point - I'm working right now. It's become another Despised Old Job over again.

The whole point, and god knows I know you were wondering if I had one or if I was just bitching as normal, is that I've accepted a new job with my company. I'm going to get out of what I do now, and I'm starting down a different career path.

I CAN NOT WAIT. My due date to be in my new position is the end of this month, and I'm counting down seconds.

In honor of this new job, I present you with 5 stupid things I've done while exhausted:
1) Washed my hair without shampoo, and without realizing I hadn't shampoo'ed, and then spent 45 minutes wondering what the hell had happened to my hair because it was all greasy and stinky. And then had to rewash my hair.
2) Went to my bootcamp class wearing 2 different sneakers, and didn't realize I had done it until 5 minutes left in class. This was even though both shoes felt completely different on my feet.
3) Cleaned out the cat litter box, and never put new litter in. They showed their displeasure by pooping behind the TV.
4) Put my glasses on to look for my glasses. Begged Blondie for help in finding said glasses after I had scoured the room looking for them. Which prompted him to say "the glasses on your head?"
5) And the capper - at the Despised Old Job, after 2 nights of working all night, crashed the entire website ON ACCIDENT. I pushed a faulty script out, and recycled every server we had for our site at the same time. I am a rock star. An old aging rock star.
