a brief note

So i seem to have completely run myself into the ground, and ended up sleeping 18 hours after a Thanksgiving lunch with my Texas family, completely missing my shift at the Barrio Bar. It's the first shift on the street that i have missed without any form of call in and i may well get fired because of that OR perhaps not, because everyone seems to have immense amounts of respect for me, and they might have actually figured out that they can still ring a shit ton of money and don't need four bartenders, plus two beer tubs and a shot girl on at the one time. I went to work at the Barrio Bar because The Professional was there and i had yet to actually work with my bartending sensei, i have a lot of time for the owners and their crew, and i wanted to work somewhere with a high volume workload because i kind of miss that, and i was hoping the money would be worth it. Turns out the money isn't there, The Professional left to go back to a Strip Club, and the customers and the music suck. I feel really bad about not turning up.

In other news, days blur so badly into each other, and people continue to confuse and fail me, and there's fuck all i can do about it other than to keep on. I know the people i can count on, i know those who mean well, and i am beginning to work out which ones are a complete fucking waste of space and cannot be trusted.

I am going to spend this week concentrating on catching up on sleep and chores. That's the plan, and i know it's not going to happen. Oh well. I am nine days away from the fourth anniversary of leaving Australia. My laptop is struggling, the system i built myself is screwed up in ways i cannot begin to fathom, so it needs a rebuild, and i just feel like sleeping and sleeping.

Ha! Welcome to the winter exhaustion.
Ain't it great?
I'm sorry you goofed your shift.
Hopefully they'll cut you some slack.
I need to come see you and have sushi again.
I enjoyed that.
May even brave the trip on my own.
There's a scary thought.
Blondechilde on the loose!

Hang in there, love.
Missed you.

Cheer up mate, there are TONS of folks who love you. And when you're loved, you can't lose. :)

Wow it's been four long years, has it? I still have your Band of Brothers box set for when you come home...

I am glad it is in the possession of someone good and not lost to that Queenslander hooker...
