A Day Off, But Not In The Good Way...

So, I have Friday off. Why do I have Friday off? Because I get to go to my great uncle's funeral. It's okay, though. I mean, I'm not 'happy' that he's dead, far from it, but he was sick for a long time, and he was like in his 80s or something, so the whole 'he's not suffering' thing anymore might seem like a cliche a lot of the time, but at this moment it seems particularly apt.

Actually, I don't have Friday off yet, but I will have Friday off. And even if I don't 'get' Friday off, I'm taking it. Who are they to say that I can't go to my own uncle's funeral, right? They'll give me the day off, I'm 99.9% certain of. After all, it isn't like I intended on this. I like to give a lot more lead time to when I take days off, but this is one of those things that really doesn't have lead time as an option, you know?

There are minor snafus in this day off, though.

1: Friday is payday. I can get my check, however, because I can pick it up since my Uncle's house and my Aunt's house (either of which will likely host the wake) are really quite close to work. My aunt's is just down the street.

2: Friday is the luncheon day. I miss out on Free Food (though I get wake food, which is often a good thing!), and I might miss out on accepting my Employee of the Month award (assuming I win it, which I won't, but I'm just saying...).

Unrelated stuff:

I still haven't called the internet people, because my neighbor is the one who has their number and I haven't seen her. I am going to tell them that I need a new modem or something, because this shit is just stupid. I can't do nearly anything.

My group that I write for is seriously spiraling downward into a very unhealthy abyss. I might have to do something about that. I don't want to, but I can.

Brawl still rules, but I'm having a hell of a time collecting all the music. And I WANT the music!!!!
