The Happy Hour Weekend Thread!

  1. Bar is Open!
    I'm having a glass of Italian red- Montepulciano d'Abruzzo, and I've poured a glass for my friend OCNRN63 as well.

    The bar is fully stocked with alcohol and NON, drinks are on AN. (The House)
    What'll it be?

    *kicks the jukebox like Fonzie: When The Levee Breaks, by Led Zeppelin, whoohoo!*

    I'm on call all weekend too, and will be working tomorrow. I'll take a (root) beer. And if you wanna make it a float, that'd be great.

    Do ya put Splenda or agave innit?

    I don't.
    I brew the tea in an old Corningware teapot that belonged to my Grandma. 3 tea bags, then add lots of ice and lemon.

    Yes?

    Sitting on my couch with the puter on my lap, phone within easy reach. If it rings, in I go. If it doesn't, I can try to sleep. The case tomorrow is just one that doesn't need to go rightthissecond but can't wait until Monday, so at least I have a heads up and won't stay up extra late tonight like my normal Friday and Saturday nights. It also means extra $$$$$$$$$$$. I'm guaranteed 2 hours of time and a half even if I don't stay a full 2 hours. And if it happens that I leave after 1 hour and get called back, I get at least another 2 hours! Some days that drives me nuts, but then I get the paycheck.

    So, I'm having more wine. It's Fall.

    Depends on whether or not my black cloud is hovering. Some days I do, some days I don't. The last two weekends I was on call the phone only rang when my mom called for her daily chat. Looks like this weekend might be a little different.

    Actually, because of my tiny little specialty team, people calling in sick doesn't affect me. It's just that the people who are scheduled to work weekends and 2nd/3rd shift don't do my specialty's cases.
