I have art on the table... but I can't get any time to touch it... I haven't even got to skype with my Tiger in more days then should be allowed. Work has consumed me, and will until this wretched valentines season is over. My company and I profit on the poor souls who waste countless millions of dollars on gifts that "will be worn once" or "thrown in he garbage after they've wilted and died". I've been working since monday, and today was my 3rd 11 hour shift in a row. My body is rejecting this labour... I have to hide at work sometimes and crouch just so my knees wont give. I need to see a doctor one of these weeks and find out if my hypothesis is well founded. I think the pain I sometimes feel in my back, knees, ankles and elbows might stem from the fact that I am very flexible... while this is good for show it lends to the issue. I believe my bones are farther apart from each other than they should be, hence my flexibility... the pain I feel could be the weight of the labour I do compressing this unnaturally large gap. Either way, this is the hardest week of the year and I have to work Tomorrow on a saturday... it will be the hardest day of the year, as it is basically an entire weeks worth of work in one day. 7-8 times regular volume and triple the size of other holiday busy days. I get sunday off... but then I have to work all of next week. I feel like shit, and my co-worker is burning my nerves pretty thin. I just want it to be over.
I wish I had time to talk to my tiger. I really need a hug right now.
When the world is reformatted, Valentines is on my blacklist, along with Christmas and any other event that is meant to toy with our emotional weaknesses and flaws. Screw you Valentines day, I curse you to the farthest depths of space and oblivion.
