That's it, I'm staying away from the dog. First my knee, now my face. I have a fat lip and a sore jaw, and his head probably isn't even bruised.

...In fairness, it wasn't his fault, he didn't mean to, and it's kind of funny. Just, y'know, ow.

Here's hoping my friendly neighbourhood computer guy can fix my baby.

...Yeah, header pretty much says it all. Also, skip this entry if work-related whining is too much. Trust me, I won't mind.

Right. I really do enjoy my job. It's interesting, (seriously, trains!), pays really damn well, and most of the people I work with are awesome. ...Although that TVTropes website keeps messing with my mind, because when railroaders "fuck the dog", they're wasting time. But when I hear it, I keep thinking they're trying to prove how evil and villainous they truly are. I also could be too damn tired, so that could be part of it.

Regardless! I'm on the spareboard right now, which means that once I'm done a shift, I can book up to ten hours maximum rest before I can be called again. There also happens to be another...oh, nine people, I think, on the spareboard with me. Normally, this would give me up to a day, day anna half if I'm lucky, between calls. Problem is, the yard is hopping right now, so that means I got home at two this morning, and I was on rest until eleven-thirty. And now it looks like I'll be called out again at thirteen o'clock.

To be honest, even that wouldn't be so bad, except that it looks like I'll be called as a foreman again, same as I've been called out for the past two shifts. And...I'm not ready to be a foreman, not yet. I'm qualified as a yard helper, and I'm pretty good at it. I'm not great, but as long as I pay attention and make sure to keep in touch with the foreman and the engineer, I can keep up and throw the switches that need to be thrown, make joints, tie on handbrakes, etc. Not a foreman, dammit! God, I just need maybe another twelve hours or so off, and another helper job. Let someone else be the foreman and deal with the paperwork and all the stress.

...Gah. The point of all that teal deer was basically I'm tired, whiney, and maybe a little stressed.

Also x-posted to JF.

Well, today I finally went and got my hair cut properly for the first time in, oh, about four years. And I have to say, I'm still kinda flaily about the cut.

I mean, for years, it was this, and now it's this. It's lighter, (weight-wise), fluffier, and so short! I am not used to hair this short! *flails, again*

And yeah, I know it's not nearly as short as I've been saying I would get it cut, but hey, I've gotta work up my courage somehow. (Why yes, I did chicken out of cutting all of it off. Your point?) Eh, I'm sure I'll cut it eventually. Now I've just gotta get used to not being able to make one braid anymore. ...Man, I'll miss that more than anything else.

In other news, we now have Halo 3. Yey! Also Heroes was amazing last night, Molly and Her Two Daddies, and Hiro!
