Went out for Chinese with my folks tonight (King Yen, a restaurant that's been in the neighborhood for ages). Food was good of course. We had some fun with the fortune cookies, though.

Mine was "You are incredibly clever. Others often come to you for advice." I showed it to my folks, proudly exclaiming "I are smart!"

My mom's was "You will take a chance on something in the near future." She followed up with "You have been warned."

My dad's was "Isolating yourself from others will not prevent you from being hurt." I said, "Yeah, because nobody will be around to say, 'Hey, look out for that tree!'"

There was a fourth cookie. The fortune there was "Happiness is wanting what you have, not having what you want." My response was "But...if you want what you have, but you have it...then...don't you have what...ARGH! My head!" My dad said that he was disturbed by the fact that he almost understood it. My mom said he was becoming enlightened. He said, "Yeah, because the light will be on all night while I'm scratching my head. Because I need to see to scratch my head."

And so, to bed.

Woke up at about 4 in the morning with my heart racing. The branch manager at my job had been on vacation all last week and was coming back today. There's nothing quite like waking up to a panic attack, wondering "Oh gods, what's going to go wrong today?" I almost called in sick—actually, I did call in sick (to the temp agency), but after talking with my mom called back and told them scratch that, I'm coming in.

The job is driving me up a wall. I want out. Only the branch manager knows when this gig is scheduled to end; the agency doesn't. They're supposed to call tomorrow to find out. I've made it pretty clear to them that sooner rather than later would be preferable, and that I'm stressing like crazy.

Today actually went fairly smoothly, aside from some irritating messiness when doing the accounting. But still, I feel like I'm teetering on the edge. Hopefully, I won't have to tolerate this bullshit for too much longer.
