Back to work.

I am back!

I kept feeling worser and worser this morning, and more and more worried that I was going to up my chuck. So at a little after ten ante meridiem (a.m.) I headed for home. On the way back I got that thing -- you know, when your mouth fills up with water, right before you t'row up? It did that thing, I spit out the spit, but I didn't t'row up. I got home and declothed and got right into bed. For two minutes I was regretting taking the Excedrin, because it has caffeine in it, but my natural talent took over and I was asleep in no time. I slept soundly until about 2 post meridiem (p.m.), when I finally got out of bed and took a shower. I was FAMISHED, because I hadn't eaten anything all day aside from a chocolate chip scone. I stopped at Wawa on my way back to work and picked up a meatball hoagie. I got back to work at around 3:30.

It sucks, because I am trying to work a decent amount of overtime, so that I can save up enough money for a down payment on a house; but I haven't been at this job long enough to get any sick time, so any time that I miss is taking away from my precious overtime hours. I won't be able to make it all up, but I'll stay here tonight til seven or eight or whenever I can't stands it anymore. And tomorrow . . . well, maybe I'll work an hour late or something, but I can't work though lunch because I have to go home and pay my apartment complex the ridiculous amount of money they're charging me for my bounced check. [I'd never bounced a check before! It's not nearly as fun as the name implies].

Oh, so although my head was definitely starting to hurt, I don't think I ever got a full-on migraine, for which I'm very very thankful. I wonder if it would have come if I hadn't gotten to sleep? Who knows. In any case, I'll try to refrain from eating ~1.5 lbs of strawberries in one sitting again, I mean really, I don't need to eat THAT many strawberries.

Oh, and also, it's freaking beautiful out there, and it's a shame that I'm stuck in here. Ah well.

am == ante meridiem

a meridian is a line on the earth, e.g. the prime meridian. meridies is latin for the middle of the day. meridiem is an inflected form.

Awesome, I've changed them, thank you for telling me.

P.S. My use of them is an homage of course to mordicai, I can't remember if he's doing it right or not . . .

Man, I used to really like writing stuff like "four (4)" as well, because I thought it was . . . I dunno, something, but now I do it INSTINCTIVELY because that's how I have to write numbers at work all the time.

how much are you planning on saving for a house? if you don't want to talk $$$, then how about %?

In theory, I would like to get a house that's around $80-100K. I'm looking to save up . . . I dunno, three thousand? Something like that.

In practice, I haven't been out looking yet, so I don't know if I *can* get a house that I want for $80K. I'm hoping, though. And I think that you can put 3 or 3.5% down or something. I mean you CAN put nothing down, but I ain't down with that.

This is all very vague in my head right now, which is fine, because I don't have any money saved up anyway. And my car's lease is up in the beginning of December, so I really should be worrying more about that.

Why do you ask?

well, i'm at that same point in my life, and i like to compare these things.

you're actually hitting about the same numbers i'm looking at. 100k should get me a bit more down here (4bdr, pool, prolly) and i'll prolly have between 3-5k when i'm ready next year. and i'm gonna try and have 3k for other costs ready, also.

thanks for sharing!

Holy cow, that's incredible! $100K will get me a teeny 2-bedroom if I'm lucky. But I'LL have a BASEMENT, so ha!

I bet, for some reason, you did need to eat that many strawberries. Some complicated cosmic thing.
