My craptastic day, in bullet points.  
  • Was woken up by my brother screaming at me that it was 10:10 am, which is notably 10 minutes after which I am supposed to be at work. It turns out that the power was out in half the apartment - my half, namely - so my alarm did not go off. Had to call my boss and was then 2 hours late to work. Before I left Dad yelled at me to call the apartment complex to get it fixed - even though I was trying to get out the door to work and my brother doesn't work on Mondays. The power came back on right before I left.
  • For the last 3 mornings, I've woken up unable to hear in my right ear. I've been using a home wax-removal treatment on it, but it's so not helping. Luckily it opens up after I've been upright for an hour or so, but it's really frigging disconcerting.
  • Stopped at Starbucks for a much-needed caffiene boost and the barista admired my license plates and we got to talk HP for a minute. That was about the only good thing, really.
  • Way too many difficult client issues today. A colleague talked down to me in front of a client. There was nothing simple, and on top of it I had a newbie listening to me. It sucked, even if he did admire my Harry Potter stuff.
  • Freaking out about surgery-related stuff. I'm a worrywart. I can't help it, but I really wish I could. I just want it to be over. I think I'd rather deal with the realities than worry.
  • Cramps. Enough said.
  • Came home to find that something smelled really bad in my room and that my new computer game, which I hadn't played yet, was smashed on the floor. I could not discover the source of the smell and I have no idea how the CD got smashed. $20 down the drain. I had planned on playing it after the surgery, so much for that.
  • Medium was a rerun.
  • I still have shit to do before I can go to bed. Screw everything.

    It was a bit, thankfully. Hoping for MUCH better tomorrow...

    My alarm also failed me and I had a crappy start getting to work. But as for the rest, you win. :( *hugs* May tomorrow be a lot better.

    I'm surprised you haven't gone on a murderous rampage...yet. Your ‘mysterious’ CD smashing monster sounds incredibly similar to my CD stealing one that seems to lurk in this house. So far the best security system that I have set up is, SSE (Shit Scattered Everywhere), my plan is that the said mysterious culprit will fall and break their neck on something...it should work.

    Just remember if you do ‘accidentally’ nock some one off, leave no witnesses.


    *~Luv Loz, mwa!~*
    Vicki: Heeeeeeeeeee!hermorrine on April 20th, 2005 04:55 am (UTC)
    LOL I'll keep that in mind.
    That's what she said.: :(altricial on April 19th, 2005 07:42 pm (UTC)
    :O does your ear blockage happen often? I used to get that too and my grandma would make me ginger tea. I've no idea what it does but it seems to work :))

    Not too often, actually. The last time was nearly 2 years ago at Nimbus, so that's not so bad - it's just ridiculously annoying. And I don't know how ginger tea would affect ear wax, but okay. :))

    Today was a bit better, but still not great. *clings*

    Ouch! An awful day indeed. All warm thoughts for a better day tomorrow... well, for today having been a better day than yesterday.

    Which game was it, out of interest?
    Vicki: Sara - CSIhermorrine on April 20th, 2005 04:54 am (UTC)
    Today has been a bit better, thankfully.

    The one that was smashed was Dark Fall. As I said, I never even started it so no clue if it's any good. If you want recommendations, I highly highly recommend The Longest Journey and Syberia (Syberia II is also good but you have to play one before two). I really love any sort of mystery game that has puzzles in it, though considering your expertise I'll guess that these puzzles will be far too simple for you. But it works for me - I like the stories that play out almost more than the puzzles, I think. If that makes any sense.

    Hey ho! I have a question...
    I posted a question around a few communities and citizenjess in queerasfolkfans pointed me to you, so forgive me for commenting something totally not related to your post, but now my question is for you :)

    Did you make this icon?:

    I saved it to my computer a long time ago while I was still pregnant, but didn't write down who it was from or what community I found it in. Hence my asking around in several communities. My question is may I use it? I will certainly credit! If somebody made it for you, then whom? I'd really like to use it :D

    Thanks so much!

    Re: Hey ho! I have a question...
    Hey! Well the biggest issue is that my name is Morri and I don't think yours is. LOL I did not make the icon, a good friend did, but I don't want to say who with said person's permission, and I really don't know if said person is willing to make an icon for someone they don't know. LOL Enough caveats there???

    Re: Hey ho! I have a question...
    rofl! I just realised right before you sent the message that it did say Morri. I thought it said MOM this whooooooole time.

    So maybe I will just make my own that says bi as mom. LOL. I think I can manage that.
    Geez. Am I a dork. :P

    Thanks though. Heheh... oh dear.
