Burnout: When the paying job doesn't pay enough

This week has become a stressful week for me at work.  I have come home so tired somedays that in the middle of doing something on the couch I will fall asleep for an hour.  This is not normal.  I think last night I got 12 hours of sleep and my body doesn't feel any worse from it.  Yikes.  It's a combination of the brain power, social interaction and physical exertion of this job.  Also dealing with interesting management and an understaffed office.

Mystic has had overtime at work too, so we unfortunately have to delay our podcast for a week.  However,  I'm hoping that soon I'll have tons of stuff to write and podcast about when I can recover.

In the meanitime I wanted to link you guys to a cracked article that shows my fears are about the be realized: 6 Shocking Ways Robots Are Already Becoming Human.

Nothing against robots, but if they become their own sentient race with their own rights that going to get messy.  Let's hope Asimov's 3 laws of robotics staves anything like that off.

And now I get ready to go to work, and then LARP, and then hopefully I will not pass out.  Later, readers!
