Wikipedia - Adrenaline Junkie - An adrenaline junkie is somebody who feels as if they are addicted to adrenaline. Adrenaline junkies may enjoy competing in extreme sports like skydiving, surfing, motorcycle racing, or anything else that gets their heart rate up. This sort of addiction is brought on by enjoying the (adrenaline) "rush" gained from these activities.

I probably will work today. I am on call 24/7, and the railroad never takes a day off, bastards. But at least it is time and a half plus a days pay.

Well...no...my job pays me 8 hours because it's a holiday to them.... But I guess the state of TX doesn't observe labor day because I am in school. Even when I worked for the unversity I remember we did not get the holiday off. In fact, all the companies in my town are doing business today....my boyfriend has to work...er..I mean surf ebay...

I had to work. 7 hours from home... the commute was horrible. I had to step over the cat in the hallway on the way from my bedroom to the loft.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!
