My Unfortunate Habit

Monday morning is always when I'm inclined to do all my more important thinking, planning, and contemplating the universe.

Sadly, I have this unfortunate habit of being at work instead.

Every once in a while, I manage to arrange things so that my work week is Tuesday - Friday, giving me Monday as a productive day to myself. These times are pure happiness in a bottle.

Unfortunately, so far they've been cursed to be maddeningly temporary, by things such as having both cars die simultaneously so I have to go back to work to make the car payment, or by the company being dissolved because of the collapse of the dot-com bubble.

This last instance ended up with a year of unemployment followed by the agony of Starbucks, making me paranoid about what sort of horror might befall me if I tried to arrange the situation again. Unsatisfied as I may be with my current circumstances, they are at least stable, well-funded, and don't leave me battered and bruised at the end of the day.

Le sigh!

*story nags Gneech*

*Gneech tells story to come back later*

*story says "To hell with that. Write me now!"*

*Gneech says, "I've got work to do, damn your eyes! Come back tonight."*

*story says, "You'll be drawing tonight, you big liar."*

*Gneech says, "Okay, tomorrow night, then."*

*story says, "I don't believe you. You'll be drawing then, too. Or playing a video game because you're too tired to do anything productive. Write me NOW, or else!"*

*Gneech says, "I can't, dammit, I'm at work!"*

*story says "I hate you" and goes off to the corner to sulk*

*Gneech shakes his head and goes back to work*
