I'm so tired today. I woke up with this killer, I-can't-move-my-eyes headache -- I almost called in. (It has resolved itself, though; a little fresh, cold air worked wonders.)

I didn't get nearly as much done on my new undergown as I'd hoped; I started to pin it together and realized that I didn't have enough white thread. I could have sewn it together on my regular machine using serger thread, but I didn't want to. The serger thread never
seems as strong by itself. So I eventually bit the bullet and went to Joann's shelling out $7.61 for a 1000m spool of Gutermann thread. It's worth the expense, though; my machine seem to sew better with it.

We got maybe an inch of snow yesterday, instead of the 2-5" forecast. I wasn't sorry to miss the snow, but I was surprised; the meteorologists around here aren't usually that inaccurate.

The fax machine at work is all fucked up. My logs look like absolute shit, and today is so not the day to strain my eyes trying to read. I'm annoyed. I need a nap.

i feel: tired tired

Around here (DC) they usually close up everything for even just a hint of snow. But with this last storm, they did an OK job of managing it, and so I didn't get anything out of it, but a 2-hour early release on Tuesday.

I'm kind of like a kid just wanting a snow day... It would be so wonderful. You don't plan it, so you couldn't have made any plans for what you're going to do -- no appointments or lunches or anything that you might put on a normal "vacation" day. And... you're housebound... so there's really no putting anything on the schedule... It's so wonderful to have a "catch up" day... [sigh] I really need a snow day!!! Sounds like you do, too! :)

I don't get them, though. I live in New England and grew up driving in this crap, so that's hardly an excuse. There are also only three employeees at this business, and we have to be here whenever our client auto dealerships are open, to take phone calls and such. I work 6 days a week for crap pay, and the only reason I'm still here is because I haven't found anything better yet.

I don't need a snow day, I need a sniper rifle.

Sorry. Did I mention I'm cranky today?

I wonder why serger thread is so thin and brittle? I can see why it might need to be thinner, considering you're usually using 3 to 4 threads instead of just two... but it really is crappy stuff. I left my serger in Arizona, and a good friend of mine is hopefully getting some good use out of it. I miss it, but I haven't figured out a good way or reason to ship it out here.

We didn't get ANY snow up here yesterday. Some flurries would have been nice, it's just too damn cold with no pretty snow. I leave for the desert next Tuesday though, so I'll get a chance to thaw out.

Hope you feel better soon.

I don't know about the serger thread, but I'm with you; I think it's a "strength in numbers" thing.

I do feel better; I'm just super-tired of this job.
