It's not cold until it's 15 or so. Give it a month, I guess - this winter supposedly will be brutal.

Well, I wish it'd stay like it is now year-round.

As I type this freezing rain starts. Fucking hell. It never just snows anymore.

Yes. 10 degrees cooler would be OK, but nothing more.

sppunk can never just agree with something, he has to add extra points

Travis Meeks
11-20-2008, 06:15 PM
that is true

Correct.

What about you, Mr. Meeks? It's in the upper 20s here, probably a bit warmer where you're at but do you prefer colder weather?

Travis Meeks
11-20-2008, 06:26 PM
Thanks for asking. I do in fact like cold weather and it is not yet cold enough. I think 25-32 is a nice winter temperature and soon I will have the old skates on and will be skiing down a majestic mountain.

I don't mind the cold but it being dark at 4:30 kind of sucks. On the mornings when I do yoga, it's dark when I leave the house and it's dark when I leave work...I only see the sun for like 10 minutes.

today we actually had seasonally appropriate weather. It was amazing. It's been 10-15 degrees warmer than usual the past few weeks.

I love that it gets dark at 6pm. Especially on the shitty days when I have to go to bed at 7pm. I hate having to go to bed that early in the summer. It's still fucking BRIGHT OUTSIDE I can't sleep through this UGH.

Travis Meeks

if you go to bed at 7pm what time do you wake up?

murgle
11-20-2008, 07:51 PM
On the days I have to go to bed at 7pm, I wake up at 2.30-3am.

Travis Meeks
11-20-2008, 07:53 PM
that sucks. I thought you work at Starbucks or something. Am I mistaken?

murgle
11-20-2008, 07:55 PM
I do work at Starbucks.

My new store (I transferred there in the beginning of this month) opens at 4.30am every day. We're really close to the airport, so we get a LOT of commuters/red-eye riders and pilots/flight attendants/etc. So since we open at 4.30am, we have to be there at 4am. I live about 20-30 minutes away depending on lights/traffic.

At my old store, we had to be there at 5am. So when I worked there, I woke up at 3.30 in the morning to shower and stuff first...

I miss working night/closing shifts. Those were my favorite. but with the promotion and new store, I have to suck it up and work in the mornings 3-4 days a week.

Travis Meeks
11-20-2008, 08:00 PM
yeah that's pretty damn early. I thought being at job sites at 7am was early....


The morning crew who work my favorite Starbucks are always zombies in the morning and it doesn't help that the one fella goes to jazz bars almost every night.

murgle
11-20-2008, 08:02 PM
Yeah. Surprisingly, the switch hasn't been so bad because on my week off, I got on a pretty decent sleep schedule. I fucked it up last week because I closed 5 nights, and now I have to go back to waking up early.

Fri- 5.30am wakeup
Sat, Sun, Mon- 3am wakeup

bulllllshit.

murgle
11-20-2008, 08:03 PM
Soon, though, I will be able to make the schedules, and I won't be scheduling myself for 4am shifts anymore. The earliest I'd want to be there is 8. Which means I still have to wake up at 530 am because of the traffic. Sooo much construction on the highway by my store means that it takes an extra 20 minutes to get 1/2 a mile.

it's been getting dark around 5:30 here i think, pretty ridiculous. i end up going to sleep so much earlier.
