Early out

I carefully write this in the LiveJournal update window as my processor is busy working elsewhere and I don't want to bother her by opening my "word processor" program. I put that in quotes because it's just my offline mail program that I use for it's spell checker since I'm not fond of LiveJournal's. Elvira is presently busy reeling in the second episode of the second season of Full Metal Panic. Unfortunately my download rate keeps dropping and the "time remaining" has been on an hour and a half for the past hour or so. If this keeps up, by the time I finally download all the episodes the series will already be in stores. I still haven't quite figured out how the download manager works but it takes a lot longer than I'm patient for so I typically don't use it when I want to do other things online. But as I began the download as soon as I came home from work (early!) and came back after doing some chores, I don't want to kill it now that it's 63% complete. Patience, child. Patience.

I mentioned coming home early tonite. I was all caught up with my work shortly before seven o'clock went to see why there were several people hanging around my manager's desk. Surprisingly, she was letting people go home early. I jumped at the chance and went to put my equipment away. I was thrilled because this would be the frosting on an otherwise crappy work week. Well, on my way back a driver asked for some help dropping off a delivery and I assisted with the first thing he asked for. I then made a beeline for the timeclock but my manager handed me a stack of headers that just had to be taken care of before midnite so for the next two hours I rushed and re-rushed to get them all finished so I could leave. Clocking out at nine wasn't nearly as satisfying as seven would have been and I just slumped into the car seat afterward, glad that this week can finally be flushed from memory.

Still having an extra hour I was pretty productive once I returned home. Writing this is the first real chance I've had to sit down and rest after walking in the door. Less to do tomorrow now, just someone please remind me to put the other load of laundry in the dryer before I go to bed.
