Prepping the Afterburners

A little weariness beginning to settle in to these calcium-filled bones of mine.

Eight hours down, eight hours to go…sure, it’s a tiring process but I am determined to finish this double-shift without complaining.

I begged for it (kinda), so I’m sure as heck gonna take it like a woman!

I’m still basking in the Harry Potter afterglow today, and thinking a lot about how weird/unexpected it was seeing Joanne at the show as well. Who knew she was a huge Harry Potter fan too?

You know…she’s here for a few more hours. I think after I finish break I’m gonna swing by her office and ask her if she’d like to grab a thank-you coffee sometime soon? She didn’t have to let me swap shifts so I could see HP…but she did, and I am SUPER thankful for that.

Anyways, I’ve gotta finish eating and brainstorm some ways to make sure I don’t fall asleep on next shift!

Not that I’m really worried: I’m placing sleep wards around my desk for the wee hours of the morning to fend off the inevitable. Pepsi, Cherry Blasters, and maaaybe coffee if it comes to it (though it’s pretty hot outside).

Caffeine to thrum through my veins and provide little slaps in the face when I need ‘em.

Onwards and upwards, early morning ho!
