It's a Mad World... [Aug. 6th, 2004|05:42 am]
Miss Von Trapp
[Mood |weirdweird]
[Music |Sisters of Mercy : Vision Thing (album - good motivation)]

I'm too hot and sweaty-nasty; feel like my face is melting, my head aches, my legs ache, my back aches, my body aches...

I feel dizzy, feel like puking when I cough too hard...feel spaced and body-weird.

Generally feel like Death.

Rang in sick and will get bolloxed for it... I'll get a stage two interview and possibly a warning, then I won't be able to go sick more than once for an entire year after that or I risk a stage 3 disciplinary and possible dismissal.

Ho hum.

I saw a scary cloud last night...looked like a horrible alien skeleton thing filling the sky with evil skull-head, huge eye sockets, gaping grinning jaw, bony neck and shoulders...rather freaked me as it didn't change shape as it moved either. Just got bigger and bigger...

I have also been exploring the joy of black ink gel rollers and licked thumb - scribbly smudgy lovely just like pen and ink drawing and watched 'Donnie Darko' (eep/wow/confuse)...

Spent four hours going through books and packing random stuff...and now my bedroom floorspace is STUFFED with big bags of clothes and books...and I'm nowhere near scratching the surface of 'things I own'.

I have way too many books for starters.

But I found my copy of 'And The Ass Saw The Angel', so now I'm happy...only problem is, it's now a quarter to six in the morning and my head is full of things to pack next and how to go about it and I have no space to do this until I shift the lot I packed today...

Can't sleep and I have to go in town today as well - pick up photos, placate the bank as I've gone over my overdraft limit again with bills going out on direct debit and visit the civic centre (sorry madam, but you HAVE to take a ticket!) to deal with council tax.

Stressed, spaced out and my sleep pattern is screwed.

The night has been too still and quiet, the roads were empty, the streetlights bright and hazy...and everything seemed hyper-real.

And now the sun is coming up - everything looks watery and cast with grey-blue dingy tinge.

*grumbles and goes off to TRY to grab 3/4 hours sleep*

Wish my brain would shut the fuck up...

unfortunately that's how the sickness procedures work in callcentres/data centres due to the stereotypically high sickness levels.

example: there's a woman works at our place, never had a days sick in 3 years. then she has a car accident and is out of the business for about 3 months whilst the surgically reconstruct her knees and legs.
she's back full time and is automatically placed on stage 2 discussion.

That's Royal Mail policy...work *so* feels like school...only it's a nightmare 8 hour typing lesson!

I'm already on a stage one warning...had two absences or up to fourteen days sick in one year! Not even a letter from my mother would excuse me from games...

Just a thought...

If you call in sick today do you want to come out to the farm and get some fresh air/space?
I'll take you back tomorrow and help you catch up on the packing if you want...

Hugs

Re: Just a thought...

I'm going to go in to work... I didn't get up till 6:30 this evening as I couldn't sleep until past 8am...

And I'm booked in for overtime till 10am so I may as well do it and go straight into town afterwards to pick up the photos I meant to collect today:)

I'll give you a call later in the afternoon - give Betty Truffle's new babies lots of tickles from me:)

*hugs*

Re: Just a thought...

hmmm. when you go sick at our place there is a 2 week overtime ban (since we get a relatively generous company sick pay "allowance", and get paid for time off, they dont like folks then coming in and working overtime at time and a half / double time..)

Re: ....

Seen it on a dodgy dockyard video back in 1990 lol - you know, the sort that used to go round the biker fraternity here in Plymuff!

Woman with an Irish Wolfhound...

(and I also saw a woman in a candleshop using progressively bigger candles, two german women in red leather straps pissing on each other, and The Devil Inside Miss Jones...which was rather funny in fact;))
