No Milk (But There Was Cookies!)

10 house again. Hoo-rah. Spent most of the night in my office catching up on my reading and poking around in the computer.

That Brand New Shiny Sergeant Drew (grin, wink) sent me an email about some supervisory skill training the middle of next month that I didn't know about so I went and filled out a request to go. Maybe get a few of those required eighty bazillion hours of training out of the way early.

I don't know if they'll let me go. I don't even know what shift I will be on by then. There's been so much "wait and see what happens" lately! Aargh!

Sgt Banty called me from the control center and reminded me that I needed to see him before too much time had passed. Apparently I'd been on the list to go pee in a cup for the state for a couple of weeks but our paths hadn't crossed until tonight. I'd had plenty of time to study for the test. (grin)

As we were heading out Stubby came up and said "Hey! They have a whole plate of cookies in Central! A big one!"

Sweet! We trotted over and got my test out of the way then scooted over to Central to raid their cookies. Like I said, there was no milk, but hey! Free cookies! I scarfed a few (It's okay. I ate a salad for dinner so I was a good boy) and hung out and chatted for awhile before I headed back.

And the rest of the evening was pretty much boring. Read a little. Fiddled with the 'puter some more. Got up and moseyed around a bit. Some parts of the Sergeant gig aint too bad.

At least I had an office I could go to and shut the door when I wanted. Not too many places have that option. It was peaceful.

I got a call and Lt Sienna told me I was #2 on the overtime list. Already!?! Snap!!! But since I was 2:30 to 10:30 if they didn't call me by the time count cleared I was gone. And on my Friday, no less.

But I made it out. Yayyyy!!!! Let the weekend begin!

Whups! Almost forgot. Here's the lineup!
Saturday: New Years Eve, Unlucky Day, Make Up Your Mind Day, No Interruptions Day and National Champagne Day (of course).
Sunday: New years Day, First Foot Day and Z Day as well as Bloody Mary day.
Monday: Run Up the Flagpole and See if Anybody Salutes It Day, Buffet Day, Happy Mew Year For Cats Day and Apple Gifting Day.

Please celebrate responsibly. We're getting full.


  1. I had to pee this week as well. At least I got OT for a couple of hours.

  2. Now 14-6 says he'll send us to a week long class later in the year for a 40 hour supervisory basic. I'll sign up for the one you did too. Look at me all eager! I'm just making work for the rest of you.

  3. "I had to pee this week as well."

    Yeah, that doesn't sound strange if taken out of context. It's like...ummm, yeah I think we all did Joe. Luckily, I know what you mean...I hope ;D

  4. Joe- It was the first time in years for me. I wonder if there's any connection?

    Sgt Drew- Yeah. Eighty hours of training for us this year. Eighty plus. Hoo boy. Don't worry. We'll remember you, pal!

    Bryan- You squirrel!
