Might Be Out of Luck

Until about twenty minutes ago, today was proceeding as normal. I slept 'til ~2, after staying awake until a couple minutes after 6, then mostly just played Gravity Rush some more, after switching tabs in Palemoon and Google Chrome for about half an hour looking for something else to do. The game is fun, but I don't feel that I've made too much progress since yesterday, and may not have as much later tonight as I expected to before. Back at 4, I was downstairs in the kitchen making some toast, and happened to notice a new message on the answering machine. They usually aren't for me, but I listened to the first couple seconds anyway, and what did I hear but Manoah's voice. He said he was at work, that it was about 11 in the morning, and to give him a call when I got the message, so I picked up the phone to see what was going on. Mary ended up explaining instead of Manoah, but it's nothing terribly remarkable. They've been busy all day, and wanted to know if I would come in early. I told her 5:30 might work, to which she said even 6:00 would be fine, so all I'm doing now is writing this, and whenever it's done, I'll be taking off. I certainly don't mind a couple hours extra, although if it's as busy as they say, I may be asked to stay past midnight, and then I wouldn't have as much time for other things.

Looking back to my entry from yesterday, I still don't want to go to Sobeys quite enough to make plans to go there later tonight. I want to at least once while they're still open 24 hours, but can I do that on Tuesday? I won't have to go to Heart and Stroke then, so that could be something different to plan for to get me out for a bit. I would come home and play games with the extra time, in which case I would want to have some snacks (probably from 7-11, since it's on the way), but what I'd really like is to be able to pick up where I left off talking to people last night. As I was getting ready to go to work, I noticed Squeeze had responded to the couple messages I sent her back on Thursday, so I replied, and got a bit frantic over not being able to find my keys, then when I came home, I noticed another chat window open bearing Totts' name. As it goes though, all she said to me was "np ^^", which I find as kind of... not enough. I know she talked to Dan. I know if I asked right now, he'd confirm as much, and that still annoys me, but... it's still something more *sigh* I sent a couple more messages, mostly informing her of that email, and seem to have the option from now until whenever she next signs on to send as many more offline messages as I like (I'm considering finding a respectful way of asking why she's usually offline, so I don't have to worry about that), and that's really all I can do with her for now. I still haven't talked to Dan yet, however, but that's mostly because I have nothing worthwhile to share with him. When January comes and I'm able to get a train ticket, yeah, I'll definitely want to tell him that, because working up a grocery list and presumably helping work up a more pleasing design for his furmeet website(s) will follow, but there's just nothing yet.

Breaking away from that now, because I can't write about it in the same way as I did yesterday, last night at work went really well. Apart from the initial issue of having misplaced my keys, I was on line from 8 - 12, and even though it was pretty busy, managed to get everything up there caught up as usual. I was even getting to the point where I wanted Laura to leave me to make orders on my own, because I felt I could work more quickly that way. She was still busy with prep work at 12, so Tom stayed an extra half hour, and I took over drive through at 12:30. After that, it was kind of busy, but not half as much as it had been earlier in the night, and by the time 3:00 came, I was just finishing up the last couple dishes. We were even out by ~3:30, but I'm really not sure if I could or should expect the same to happen to Tom and Laura tonight. James' assumption was that this Saturday wouldn't be as busy as last, because people aren't out of school until next week, but if it does get busy, I won't really want to stay 'til 3. Maybe I should, because I could make up for the three hours I lost by being closed at midnight on Sunday, Monday, and Wednesday, but I'd still prefer to be done early. On the next schedule, both Tom and I work 8 - close, so that may be changing back already. Or it could just be something to do with Christmas fast approaching. On that note I should get ready to leave though. After last night, I'm done with waiting until the very last minute to head out. I know where my keys are this time, but I like having a couple minutes to spare~
