Five days of evening shifts is beginning to take a toll on me. I've been working every night from 4pm-closing, with the exception of Friday night when they let me off early, at 9pm. Dark circles, which long ago took up permanent residence under my eyes, are slowly creeping up around my eye sockets too. My back's slowly packing in, old injuries are becoming harder to ignore and new bits which I didn't think could hurt are beginning to. Who knew you could get sore elbows? And let's not even talk about knees and feet. Suffice to say that I think I should be sponsored by Herron Blue and V. Anyway my last shift for the week is tonight, and hopefully next week I'll get one more day off. If not, I'm going to ask Santa to postpone Christmas for a couple of weeks, so I have time to do my shopping, finally go to the bank, get a haircut and go to the physio. I'm only just realising that it's a week away.
PS I'm feeling very vindicated. Triple J has been playing Weekend Without Makeup by the Long Blondes on high rotation. What'd I tell ya!?
