I must use my powers only for good, never for evil

December 3, 2008

Remember how I said yesterday I wasn’t sure I could justify the luxury or expense of a vacation over Inauguration Day?

Today I found out I’m working 28 hours of overtime in the next week. Well, that’s that. Three days of fine bourbon, enjoying a well-stoked fireplace, and no tv coverage of Mr. Obama’s inaugural.

It’s a little alarming to me how often that happens. When I was in the running for the job I currently have, I didn’t have enough money for a suit and an attache case for the interview. I was at a casino with a friend, put $10 into a slot…and won $600, enough for a suit and an attache case.

I am grateful for my good fortune. I don’t know if it’s God, or luck, or kismet, or serendipity, or karma, but these sorts of things happen more often than I deserve. It’s awesome, I just hope I’m not overdrawn in some karmic bank somewhere and will get hit by a bus when I’m 40.

Vital stats: silver $9.56 an ounce; gas $1.59 a gallon, Dow up 270 to 8419.

    Awesome, girl. The Clubhouse looks way cool. In this case, crazy overtime is full of win.
