At work we have a form called the Make Up Time form. It’s for those days when you’re late back from lunch or you leave early or come in late from a doctor’s or other appointment. It basically lets you work a little OT to make up for the time you were gone. It works at the office, but in your daily life… no effing way. Once the time is gone, it’s just gone. (Time is… fleeting… madness… takes its toll. HEH That was for ZAM.)
Trying to make up for lost time never happens and just frazzles us and places undue stress on already stressed out nerves. Yet, I keep trying to make up time. I know it’s pointless, fruitless, yet I do it.
Last week was a short week at the office because of the holiday. So I rushed stuff all week trying to do 5 days of work in 4 days. And because the holiday was on a Monday, but it didn’t feel like a Monday, Marcus completely skipped my mind. Man, I’m getting old. Forgetting Marcus is a bad bad thing. Might need that Alzheimer’s test now.
So while I cannot make up time, I can make up for a missed Marcus. Here. Have two.
Since I can’t make up time, I’m gonna have to hustle. I have a new contract with MLR Press, deadlines looming, and all my stupid little computer issues are fixed (I think) this time. Still buying parts one and two at a time for a new computer. Hopefully will have the new one up and running by the holidays. Meanwhile, the green machine seems better and happier now.
I’ve given RottNRoll.com back to Rott (you can tell by the Ozzy video on there) and redone Winterheart.com for my graphics stuff. I even put up a gallery. It’s a temp gallery because I’m moving the domain to new hosting in December and I didn’t wanna have to move a ton of stuff.
Still haven’t managed to move The Bar to its own domain. I swear you’d think I could figure the shit out but I keep doing something wrong. My concentration is shot I guess. All that trying to make up time is screwing me over I suppose.
So don’t make up time, just move on folks! And have a great Monday while you’re at it! *wink*
