try to catch the deluge in a paper cup

I'm still at work. I took a voluntary freeze-in because it's double time and I get paid for two shifts to work one, which consists of paperwork, the occasional med, an hour of safety checks, and sitting here playing with the PC. I figure that most nights I go to bed at oh-dark-thirty anyway, and if I can stay up until 3 a.m. for free I can stay up until 7:30 for double the money I usually get for doing much more work.

So. Entertain me? Write me a drabble, tell me a joke, tell me a story or a poem. Tell me your favourite song or show or play or movie or book, and why. Ask me a question. Send me a screenshot of your desktop or a picture of something or someone: your dog or the last movie you saw or your cousing Bob from Peoria. Anything or anyone. I need help staying awake boredom-free, y'all.

In return, I'll do this meme (gacked from my lovely wife patchfire), which may or may not make your week. Probably the second thing.

My dragon ring, but I have to clean it before I wear it again. It looks awful. Also, my turquoise-coloured #5 Earring. It's just one earring, and it's a turquoise coloured "5". I occasionally can find it.

12. Do you like painkillers?

I would if they didn't want to make me throw up. Actually, I can take opiates in very small doses. (ONE Tylenol#3 or maybe a Vicodin. One.)

I agree with patchfire This is an awfully heterocentric question, isn't it?

Yes. Officially. Also some form of dyscalculia.

No, dammit, and I should.

28. What shirt are you wearing?
Black long-sleeved T, black skirt with yellow flowers, low boots with practically flat heels.
