Another week, another chance for you, gentle visitors, to take a peek inside the life of your Favorite Catgirl Princess….
Has it been a good week? Well…. not particularly. It started off with another terribly grueling weekend at work. Seems, despite predictions, that we were busy as usual even with both our local colleges being on Spring Break. I didn’t get much free time, and our Kitchen Manager finally decided she couldn’t work any more shifts until her surgery…. There went my day off Tuesday…. But THAT wasn’t the truly bad part…..
Wanna find out what could possibly be worse? Then you know you gotta “Read On”….. silly!!
On Tuesday, while shorthanded and busy as heck, I took a tumble in our kitchen while carrying a big pot of soup to our walk-in cooler. I slipped on a tiny chunk of ice that some careless waitress had spilled from the ice machine near the door and went down on the tile floor, pot and all…. At least the pot was full of cooled soup…. but trying to catch myself resulted in my breaking my left wrist but good. It hurt like hell…. and had that weird dented look that a broken arm should have. I saw my freakishly bent wrist… promptly got light headed and fainted dead away. Then it was bundling groggy lil’ me up all gooey and soup covered for a trip to the hospital in the middle of the luncheon rush. So much for the rest of my day…….
So now I’ve got a brand spanking new cast on my left arm from elbow to fingers…. just what I didn’t need. At least the doctor bill is covered by my employer….
Taking a shower that night was just a pain…. my arm all wrapped up in a plastic bag, and now today I find that I’m bruised, black and blue all over, and look like I went three rounds with Tony Jaa. The bad news? Since I’m right handed, this only gets me one day off from work…. This just soooo sucks……
But…. at least it can’t get any worse…. right?
Wrong. When the Spirits want to mess with you they never do it halfway. I got a call from Carolyn today, and it seems she’s heard back from her Interview. While they were impressed with her, and thought she interviewed well, they decided to go with another, better qualified applicant for the job. So we’re right back to where we were…. and I was sooo happy with the prospect of being able to have her move in with me.
So as a result, I’m one sad lil’ kitten this week…. My sweet Carolyn wanted to rush up and console me, but I put on a brave face and talked her out of it. She insists she’ll be up again this weekend regardless and will not take any excuses from me until she’s gotten the chance to “play nurse”. I have to admit, the prospect of her “kissing it and making all better” does sound appealing… but I’ll still feel guilty about inconveniencing her.
Anyway…. I did manage to get my review posted up both here and at Delirium Vault for the French action film “Chrysalis”, and hopefully I have at least one more by Friday….. if there’s time to write it up, that is.
So….. till next week…. “Meow, meow for now!!”
