Yes, it was a week from hell, and the only good thing about it was discovering Battle Royale. (Which was pretty kick-ass, I admit, and I'm SO glad I had something to keep me from keeling over altogether.) Okay, actually, it was more like an extended Weekend from Hell, but....well, let's backtrack:
FRIDAY: I spent the night at our old house, which was so full of fleas that I couldn't stand anywhere for longer than five seconds without getting eaten alive. (Yes, I timed them. And then I vacuumed the house.)
SATURDAY: Came home to spend the night in my old room, because our guests (we had guests) were invited to come hang out in the more private downstairs bedroom (which I'd been using since my brother moved out) because they were on a sort of belated, weekend pseudo-honeymoon thing. Which was very nice for them, but the walls in my old room are so paperthin you can hear EVERYTHING up there, even the TV downstairs if it's on at all. Not even on loud, just ON. So they were chatting (they also had guests this night - oh yeah, which meant I had to park on the damn street because the driveway was full) up until around 1am, at which point I couldn't get to sleep immediately because I just can't do that when I'm already awake and annoyed. And then the puppydog parked herself outside my door at around 4am, whining and needing to go out.
SUNDAY: Came to work operating on roughly three hours of sleep, total, and found out that the manager who usually does our schedules is on vacation, so our GM (the one taking up the schedule making) chose to put it together without looking at the request book IN WHICH I'D MADE VERY CLEAR REQUESTS TO HAVE MEMORIAL WEEKEND OFF LIKE A MONTH AGO, and scheduled me to work this weekend. So now, even though my shifts are covered, I'm losing more hours than I should, and I CANNOT afford to lose any more hours.
MONDAY: Slept until 4pm, then did laundry and watched Battle Royale again, because fuck 'em all.
TUESDAY: Found out I didn't actually have Monday off. *sob* So I took over someone else's shift to make up the hours. I blamed my dyslexia, lack of sleep, and general overdose of HELL.
Now, it all finally appears to be really over, I am going on a little Memorial Weekend camping trip, and dear God do I need one.
In the meantime, my Battle Royale review is here
Stay tuned for my Movies In Fifteen Minutes entry - finished writing it this morning, it just needs coding.
