please enjoy

(hell yes)

Leonard Cohen's song 'Hallelujah' (of which I love Jeff Buckley's version) is one of the best and most revered songs of the last 30 years. Well I've never shied away from the fact that I think David Bazan is one of the best singer/songwriters ever. So how awesome would it be if Dave covered 'Hallelujah?' With his own tweakings?

Hear for yourself.

The holy are the broken. Hallelujah.

Happy New Year.

tales from the night shift


so it's wednesday at 10 til six in the evening, and i've already almost worked 40 hours. i won't get off until 10:30 tonight (twss), and tomorrow i'm working from SEVEN (SEVEN! SEVEN! SEVEN! (seven!)) in the morning until probably after MIDNIGHT.

so lunch is on me friday, if you happen to be in augusta at that time.

i'm so tired i don't even know which way is up, and the stem on the cherry on the whipped cream on top of the ice cream sundae that IS my job, is that i'm working on a totally separate project this week, and all my regular work is just piling up on my desk.

so, you know...OH MY GOD.

on a side note, last night during dinner i finished an incredible book. it's called 'blue like jazz' by don miller. a fair warning, the subtitle of this book is, 'nonreligious thoughts on christian spirituality.' miller is a christian, but like a lot of us, he's gotten to the point where most organized religion is more of a hinderance than a help. the whole book is just his thoughts on his faith and how to be relevant in a world that is shunning christianity. the chapter on the reverse confessional alone is worth reading the book. i'll be honest, this is the first ever NONfictional book i've read to the end. i'm serious. i know that's probably lame, but there it is. i think anyone in the world can pick up this book and appreciate the honesty and candor of his meanderings. and it's so laid back and simple, it will take no time at all to read.

ok, i'm gonna get back to work. it's not gonna do itself!

tales from the night shift

my position of responsibility at O.A. has called for the necessity for me to work the night shift for the next month. this is the reason i got to work at 11 yesterday morning and left at 11:45 last night.

night shift, day 1 - "pat has to fire a guy"
not just any guy. the night shift supervisor. DAY. ONE.
the end.

so for the next month, i will usually be working from noon or 1pm to around 11pm. there are good and bad things about it, the best being that i can wake up whenever I want and still have three hours before I have to be at work.

but, one simple truth remains. overtime. is. AWESOME.
