Turn downtime into uptime

Indeed... the title of the post is the tagline on adverts on the buses in Van for this one cell phone service provider. Well, Telus, I think you're full of fail. Time on the bus isn't even downtime, it's nothingtime. It's let-your-mind-go-gloriously-blank-on-the-way-to-work-because-it's-far-too-early-to-be-awake time.

Bus-time is not downtime. Downtime, real downtime, is sacred. So much so, that I make a point of reveling in it. I love downtime. I need downtime. I'm not getting any right now.

Which is why I haven't posted anything resembling a normal Mer-length rant in forever. It's not that the hockey season is over, it's that I'm working 5 nights a week after trying to write all day. Sadly, this isn't going to end for another few weeks (at which time I will have a 3 week respite from the insanity before Labour Day... joooyyyyyy... >:( that's my unhappy face.

The only bright spot on the horizon (that isn't Christmas) is my upcoming trip to Buffalo. That said... Do I have my plane ticket? Big FAT no. Do I have my shifts at work covered? Yeah, I should get on that, eh? Am I worried? Are you kidding?

In true Mer-fashion, I'm sure it will all work out... I mean, it has to. So it will.

And really, if it doesn't work out that just means that I have to take a side-trip to Vancouver to kidnap you. =]
