Holidays and work

Holiday. Essentially the word is two words. It's a combination of "holy" and "day", so a "holy day" or holiday.

I mention this because we have the "holiday" season coming up, and I'm going to have to work on some of these days. It looks like I'll have Thanksgiving off, but I'll be working the day after. I'll also be working Christmas night, and finally the night of New Years (but not New Years Eve).

For the most part, I really can't complain about my job. I do pretty much jack and shit, and I get paid well for it. On the other hand, being a 24/7/365 facility means covering holidays. I think the next job I have has to allow for non-covered holidays. This is for the fucking birds, to be working on Christmas, or even the day after Thanksgiving, when probably 80% of the workers of America are resting.

It's weird though. On the one hand, I have these thoughts, but on the other hand, they're like coming from a brain somewhere outside of my head. I've made posts before about being awake and asleep.. for the last few months I've been asleep.. and it's been a sleep without even much in the way of dreams.

Mr. Autopilot, that's me.
