christmas 2008

keep one eye directed overhead...

...because hate bombs are being dropped. Today is a work day for all hands on the Submersible Death Trap, but the crew isn't required to come in until 8:15. This was the impression I was under as I left yesterday. Last night, Ray asked when they duty personnel needed to be there, and I told him 8:15. He wasn't sure, so he called the boat, and was told that the duty section needed to be there at the standard weekday time. This meant that instead of getting up at 7:00 this morning, I awoke at 4:45. When I arrived, I was shocked to discover that my original information had been correct, and I'd lost two and a quarter hours of sleep for nothing.

On a happier note, The Bank Job was very good. I didn't know until just now that this is the first time the story had been told. Either Vantage Point or Semi-Pro will be on the docket for tomorrow.
