Weekend from HELL…

I’ve done some pretty stupid ass shit in my life…

I’ve stayed up 96 hours at work one week tracking a technical problem between six departments relentlessly. I’ve worked three shifts back-to-back because circumstances required it, and I thought I could do it. I’ve driven home on spurts of adrenaline between Redwood City and San Jose… even San Francisco and San Jose. One year, on the drive down to AX, I drove on two hours of sleep. It sucked.

This weekend, after taking in a Giants game on Saturday on 4 hours of sleep due to having stayed up all night with Jenn at Pacifica (dawn broke on my way home Saturday morning), I pulled a 12 hour shift at work from midnight to noon and then proceeded to drive home. If it had not been for ‘s heroics, I honestly think that my recently updated will and final messages would have been employed.

Let’s face it; I’m not in my early twenties anymore and I don’t have the stamina or the endurance to pull all-nighters and come out with a second head of steam. And yet, for some reason I continue to do this to myself and the humor value has now worn off. My lack of sleep turned what should have been a great weekend into a hellish one.

Fuck this noise. I need a new job.

    I slept for one hour last night and just sent a “Lock Confirmation” email to someone with the subject of:

    Nice. I hope it was a guy you sent it to, because that’s an email that’s getting opened to make sure he’s got a cock. πŸ™‚

    It actually went to my boss, who is a man. He hasn’t said anything to me about it yet – hopefully he’ll find the humor in it and not threaten to fire me again. We have been getting all sorts of strange porn email lately, so maybe he’ll just blow it off.

    Heh. Blow it off.
