Saturday Mish-Mash

Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

It’s a cold morning in Bagwine. 21 degrees Fahrenheit. For all of you pretentious Celsius clowns out there that’s -6 degrees.

I start my new schedule today and will be working 11-4 today, so I’ll be shivering while delivering the suds and smokes.

For me, winter is officially here when I go into the beer cooler to warm up because it’s warmer in the cooler than it is outside.

Today is such a day, but I dig the new schedule. I work four days and then off for three…and unlike my days off in the old schedule, my days off are consecutive. Boo Yah!!

I like working 11-4 because it gets me up and gets me going and I get off early enough to still enjoy the Saturday. And today will be decent because although it will be cold, it is supposed to be sunny. I like that.

I know what you’re thinking…

“Damn Matt-Man, this post is fucking fascinating!!”

What can I say? Fascinating is my middle name. Well, it’s one of my middle names…My other one being, Asshole. But of course, what’s in a name?

Anyhoo…

That’s all I’ve got. That’s all there is. There isn’t anymore.

I’ll talk to Ryno later this morning and find out how his regular season debut on his High School JV basketball team went and report back.

One last thing…

Good Luck to the Wittenberg University Tigers. Wittenberg is a very good private school located here in Bagwine, and their football team is playing in the NCAA Division III quarterfinals today.

Go Tigers!!

Until later today, perhaps tomorrow, or well, whenever…

Cheers!!

Doc: It is a good school. Witt plays Wisconsin-Whitewater which is ranked 2nd in the country. It's going to take a perfect game by Witt to beat these guys. But it may happen. Have a great weekend too. Cheers Doc!!

I remember going from eight hour days to 4-10's. The two extra hours each day was more than worth the extra day off, and when they are consecutive...bonus!

It’s all about the consecutive days off. And I used to have to work a shift at the PA turnpike 11-7, I absolutely loathed it. I’d rather work midnight, at least you can enjoy the day!

Matt-Man said...

Jeff: I agree. Especially if you half way like where you work. Cheers Jeff!!

Scott: Ha. I am working 11-7 today. Thanks for bringing me down. Cheers Scott!!

We had snow all day Saturday. Very little to show for it though because it had not been cold enough for long enough. We had us some big ass flakes. I likes me some big ass flakes :)
