The minor fall and the major lift

I'm off work due to major insomnia - trying to work a 10-hour shift on one hour's sleep seemed a little overenthusiastic. Though it did mean I missed fortuneandglory's coffee-n-cake leaving do, sadly.

Anyway, I've been in a terrible mood all day week, so I figured it was a good time to start that happies meme.

Happies today:

1. My flat is tidier than it's been in, ooh, a year. (Not TIDY yet, but I'm getting there.)

2. My starry Christmas lights are up. Pretty.

3. I have remembered the existence of this icon, which is made of win.

4. Jeff Buckley's Hallelujah is sitting at number 3 in the midweek charts. Wouldn't take too much of a push for it to get to number 1 ahead of X-Factor person's attempt at it... Buy it at 7Digital now! You can use paypal and everything. Only 89p to really, really annoy Simon Cowell - you know it's worth it. (I would've got behind Leonard Cohen version, but it's only at number 37.)

5. While downloading that I also acquired a Christmas song called To All A Good Night - by Arab Strap. I expect it to be suitably lacking in goodwill to all men.

Oh no, sorry to have missed you! I'll be back as soon as they'll have me back for a casual shift though. I'm really starting to think I've made a mistake here...have had such a lovely day and all. But I'll see you next year and hopefully watch some Grand Prixs with you?

Yeah, I figured I'd see you in the office again soon - can't believe they've turned you down for overtime though! I suppose having enough staff in would make it far too relaxing next week, or something.

I'd love to meet up for some Grand Prixs - hopefully next year I'll be working less of the Sundays they fall on!

Yeah! God, that's one thing I'm looking forward to, having every Grand Prix weekend off as a matter of course. Can't believe the Bourdais/Sato thing is STILL being spun out, wish they'd just decide one way or the other... :(

I've been telling everyone that if they get called in on an O Day next week, they should tell them to call me instead ;) Maybe it's cos paying me overtime is more expensive than waiting till I'm a casual member of staff and paying me less. Or maybe they're just determined to give me a proper Christmas break. Ha!
