Payday and Corn Pops

For those of you who don't work a fixed-hour a week schedule, do you ever get that antsy feeling right before you get your check on payday? Like 'I-hope-the-employment-gods-decided-to-show-me-they-appreciate-me-more-then-usual'?

This past week I worked overtime. It was supposed to be just a half hour of overtime, but since I ended up staying late for a few shifts, I'm sure it quickly added up.

Plus, I'm due back-dated holiday pay (8 hours for the 4th of July), and my two year raise is supposed to go through "sometime" this month.

Today I get paid, so as I sit here munching stale Kellogg's Corn Pops (sans milk) and drinking Powerade (because it was on sale for 88 cents) for breakfast thinking about the fact that we REALLY need to go grocery shopping, and I still have TONS of bills I have to pay (some of which are past due) , I'm crossing my fingers that the employment gods will be on my side today.

I'd really just like a bonus, but unfortunately in our company those are only given to the pharmacists, not the technicians.

PS: Why is Corn Pops the only cereal (or at least the only cereal I know of) packaged in some strange, space-age silver cereal bag? Corn Pops are too good for plastic? It certainly can't have anything to do with keeping them fresher, because those damn bags are impossible to tear properly so you always wind up with a big counterproductive rip in one side of the bag only...

Edit: Received paycheck. Employment gods did not smile on me. The end.
