Brackets Busted

I was waiting to post how amazing my brackets were until after I won the pools I was in, but after last night there is no point in waiting.  My brackets were decimated.  Two of my Final Four teams, Michigan St and Wisconsin bit the dust.  I was tied for 2nd place in two pools until last night.  Now tied for 22nd, not the direction I was hoping to go.  All that is left to do now is hope Indiana can bust some more brackets for and keep the tournament interesting for me.  Oh well there is always next year.

Working Overnight

I just finished by first full week of working overnights at CVS, and I must say it is the greatest thing ever.  I realize that the store I am working at just became a 24 hour store, so the inhabitant of Gary/Merrillville are still figuring out that I am an easy target to murder/rob, but in the mean time I am loving every minute of it.  I usually finish all work by about 3am.  My shift last from 9pm to 8am.  Here is a run down of how the night usually progresses.
  • 9pm:  Arrive at the store and think to myself, 'What the fuck did they do all day?'
  • 11pm:  Just about finish filling everything and say goodnight to by evening technician
  • 11pm-12am:  Read my Kindle
  • 12am:  Readyfill aka "Dreadyfill" (Compliments of Sampstar) drop in.  Roughly 100 prescriptions
  • 2am:  Finishing filling and checking all prescriptions
  • 3am:  Finish all Kindle and watch movies on my laptop
  • 7am:  People start waking up and keep me moderately busy until I leave at 8am
  • 8am:  Drive home without falling asleep
The 3am-7am movie watching and Kindle reading really make this experience complete.  I usually have 3 customers a night after midnight and about as many phone calls.  I have gone from wanting to kill everyone I encounter to almost reading the whole Hunger Games trilogy and watching all the Harry Potter movies in one week.  Pretty sweet deal.
