 I ended up not coming back to my post, and now it's Thursday.

I will not, alas, be staying up for Critical Role tonight, because it's 18:30 and I can barely keep my eyes open. Better to go to bed early and watch tomorrow, when I'm fresh. Otherwise I'll just end up nodding off during the show and missing all the important stuff anyway. I'm pretty excited, because Vox Machina are all at Level 17 and above now, which means their story is ramping up toward the End Game of Level 20, and I can't wait to see what Matt has in store for them!

I've been lured into a new video game called Stardew Valley by [livejournal.com profile] fearsclave , who is responsible for so many of my bad habits that I have truly lost count. It's a fun little game, although I'm finding certain aspects a little frustrating. I spent a couple of days obsessing about it, and then I had to work, which generally put the kibosh on most of my extra-curricular activities anyway. I may go back to it tonight, or maybe tomorrow morning, depending on how soon I decide to be boring and go to bed.

Otherwise, life proceeds as usual. I have done no unpacking since the weekend, when my parents visited, and I should probably get on that. Living out of half-opened boxes ain't all it's cracked up to be, but I'm also a terrible procrastinator, and apparently I'm willing to put up with a lot of inconvenience to avoid unpacking properly.

I promised myself I'd be doing more in May, and yet this week I have been a mix of mysteriously extra tired and also pretty busy, video games aside. I'm still not settled into anything remotely like a routine here, inasmuch as I am able to have routines in my life at all these days. There's a lot of upheaval at work again: more people leaving, a couple of new people coming in, but more going than coming, and so now I'm probably going to have to go back to training newbies, which I really don't enjoy. Bleh.

I also am kind of dipping my toe into paying closer attention to hockey. Yeah, I don't understand it either, but there you go. My home team are out of the playoffs ("No, Habs, no!") but my not-quite-home team, the Senators, are still in it for now, so I'm rooting for them. Many, if not most of my online friends are Penguins fans, and although I can't quite bring myself to root for an American team, Sidney Crosby is at least Canadian and is, I must say, pretty magical on the ice. So it's fun to watch my Pens friends get all excited about their boys.

Okay. My brain has officially turned to mush tonight. Time to give it a rest. :)

Not necessarily in that order. Tonight was fun. The Canadiens won, and I had a lot of beer to celebrate. Apparently I am now officially a Habs fan. At least, so the people at work tell me. Oh well, at least they're the home team. I am also committing the cardinal sin of posting while inebriated.

I think the sentence I'm looking for is: "I'm not as think as you drunk I am!"

We went dancing at a local club, which made me feel old and unhip, which is sad because I'm not even thirty yet. All the people there were twenty years old at most and looked about twelve. There's nothing like getting checked out by a boy barely out of diapers to make one feel really out of it. I've never been "cool" so it was unsettling at best.

It was fun, overall. Dinner at La Cage Aux Sports was lots of fun, and I had a good time dancing too.

So all is well. Tomorrow ought to be a busy day. I'm being switched to a different site because they're sending someone back to Montreal early tomorrow. The OCC in Montreal is apparently really suffering because Litigious!Coworker and Big!Bear are both off on sick leave, which leaves too few operators to man the posts. They've already asked me twice more for overtime this week, and I've said no both times. They may force me to come in, but I've told them I'm not coming in unless they force me.

Okay, bed. Water first, then bed.

Another night that refuses to end. Six hours and twenty minutes to go, which means the night is less than half over. Then, tomorrow it's lather, rinse, repeat.

Could somebody please put this shift out of its misery?

Oh, and the Canadiens lost. I'm not ultra happy, but at least we won't have riots anymore.

People! The series have just started! It is not yet time to riot and destroy police cars. Seriously, can you not wait until the Canadiens have won the cup before causing public mischief?


It's enough to make me hope the Canadiens lose the series, if the fans can't behave themselves like civilized human beings.
