Grandparents and Vacation Days

I’ve got a million things to write about and they’re getting all jumbled up in my brain place.  I need to pull them apart and arrange them in some kind of reasonable fashion.  This is why I don’t post as much as I should.  In fact, the single best advice I can give to anyone with a website is this: “Post all of the time”.  This is why it is so easy to be popular on Twitter.  You need to post early and often.  The shorter the better.  Only real readers want long stuff, and most people aren’t readers.  Even with audio and video, you should at least consider posting mostly shorter spots, at least once a week.  The longer you go without new content, the more regular viewers you lose and the less potential new visits you can get.  I’ve got some more on that, but maybe I should hurry up and take some of my own advice.

Alright, let’s get to the point of this post.  My grandparents from my father’s side are in town.  Well… not really in my town, but close enough.  This is pretty cool, as I haven’t seen them in a very long time.  I got to see my grandmother on my mother’s side earlier this year, and that was also pretty cool.  However, this puts new stresses on me.  You see – (1) I hate people.  Not really hate people, it’s more like I hate being around people.  I’m really not joking about that.  I get extremely anxious around people, to include familiars.  Cleaning up my language isn’t really a problem (though it sure is for my brother).  (2) Cleaning up subjects I bring up and responses that I give, well that’s another thing.  (3) I have to jack up my already jacked-up schedule to see them.  I realize this last one is really petty, more so that it involves family I don’t see as much as I should, but it still sucks having your schedule fucked up.

Speaking of fucking up my schedule, I have 10 days off that I have to use-or-lose before the end of the year.  That’s two work-weeks, which is very rad.  This is not a bitch.  I just don’t know when to take those days.  I like to be in the office around the holidays, as the office is empty and the work-load is lighter.  There are also some days that I just can’t take off, and I’m not really sure if I want to take more then a few days at a time, and blah blah blah.

Middle-class-single-guy problems.  That’s what I got.  Sometimes it’s nice to review and see just how good I got it.
