- I did, in fact, get called in to work my friend's shift at the Bros. His shift was originally scheduled to last 5.75 hours, which was 5.75 hours more than I had been scheduled for (through no fault of the Bros., mind you; I had not made myself available for any weekday shifts). I got to work, found a great parking space, clocked in, and went out on tour. After the first tour, I had time to eat a little something and work on Emily's Moebius Scarflet. Then my second tour didn't happen (insufficient ticket sales). This meant I had to either go home or find somewhere that my help was needed. Immediately found the Boss Man, who checked in with another Boss Man to let me know they could use me on another part of the lot, and that I could probably extend my shift to a full 8 hours. Sweet! While I was having my first little nosh, I received a phone call from Human Resources: my temporary "assignment" was scheduled to end on the 20th, which is a week from Saturday. I'm just a little sad to hear that; Warner Bros. has been very good to and for me. The ending of a temp assignment isn't like being "fired", though. There's always the possibility that they can and will recall me for another "assignment" in the future. I'm leaving it in God's hands, which is not to say that I won't still be an exemplary employee while they have me.
- I got to work on Emily's Moebius Scarflet while I was on break at work! Because this yarn is significantly smaller/thinner/finer (I really don't know what the correct terminology is that means "less bulky") than the two I've worked with so far, I had to buy some new hooks. But also, it means that there are more stitches to get an equivalent "distance" of scarf or other crocheted item created. Which means this one might take me longer than four days. Hopefully, it doesn't use the whole skein! We'll see.
- I had time through the course of the day to submit myself for some more background work, including one tango gig at the end of the month and another tomorrow (that it doesn't appear at this point in time that I've booked) for women "familiar" with knitting. Since I am currently working a crochet project, I didn't consider it a lie in any way to say that I am "familiar" with knitting. But just in case I still manage to book this gig (or get rush-called for it late tonight), I needed a crash course in knitting. Luckily for me, in addition to the plethora of YouTube videos that exist, I have a neighbor (with needles that would match the gauge of my Emily yarn) who was more than happy to both instruct me and lend me her needles, just in case.
- Got my schedule for next week at the Bros. Even though I'm pretty sure I told 'em the same thing I've been saying for the last month ("I'm available Sunday and Saturday, and if anything opens up during the week, I'll call in"), I got a 40-hour schedule. For the final week of my temp assignment. Who knows what that means, really?
I think I'll head to bed early tonight. Yeah, I know, it's already after 11 here, but considering I'm not yet booked for any kind of work tomorrow, 11 qualifies as both early and late. As Mommy used to say, I'll have to "Sleep Fast!"
