Today was a bad day. No one died or anything, but lots and lots and lots of sucky things that add up. Doctor's appointment took THREE HOURS so I didn't get lunch today. (On the plus side I got to see x-rays of my back which was interesting... I have a very nice back!)

I had a huge project to do but lost three hours to the doctors visit plus I had a counselors meeting that afternoon so my project did not get finished. I was late getting to said counselors meeting and had to interrupt it with my arrival (thankfully the Curriculum meeting ran long so there were other late people, too.) The counseling meeting also ran long which meant 1) I ended up working late, 2) I was late for class, 3) I miss the ticket office to drop off tickets on the way to pottery so I had to wait to for them to reopen, and 4) I didn't have time to organize my office before I left. I hate leaving unfinished work but I absolutely HATE leaving unfinished work in a mess. To prevent that I even left the meeting before it ended (which meant I disturbed them a second time) to try to minimize my lateness but when I returned to my office my supervisor came in to ask for my help with an evaluation issue (my old job/her new job) which took up another ten/fifteen minutes as I babbled distractedly trying to answer her question while prepping the ticket envelope and stacking folders for tomorrow and doing none of them well. I looked like an idiot and told her I was on pain medication to try to justify my doofiness. Speaking of meds - I have anti-inflammatories! Two weeks worth.

In other sucky instances today, I misunderstood a friend's request and bought an extra ticket to Rent which cost $35 but I managed to sell it to a coworker for $25 so I only wasted $10. To get it sold, though, I had to send an all-college email which means the president/vice presidents/provosts got to see me beg to have someone buy it from me. Durrrr. I also somehow managed to accidentally call the Vice President when I misdialed the Continuing Education phone extension. Our VP told me I was on my own trying to track them down so at least she was in a good mood when she got interrupted.

In pottery I dropped one of my pieces in a vat of glaze. It didn't break (yay!) but I had to wash it and stick it out to dry so cross your fingers the drying process doesn't make it crack. Despite it being the last day for new clay my husband wasn't feeling well either so we agreed to leave as early as we could (we had to stay to at least six so we could drop the ticket off at the box office) so we didn't get any last projects in but we did glaze some stuff so it wasn't a total waste of time.

It's weird - I was upset and frustrated all day because lots of little things were going wrong but nothing calamitous. Little bits of bad that could have been awful but always had a bright side. I made an idiot of myself but others did similar things so I wasn't alone, I screwed up but managed to salvage most of the situation, I dropped things but didn't break them, I am not feeling well but I've felt worse... I don't know how I feel.

But better now that I've eaten! Then again, missing lunch was probably a good thing because I went off my sound nutritional plan over Spring Break. So bright side to that, too.

But today still sucked.

I'm sorry girl. =o(
When it rains it pours...
But you're home now, and you get to snuggle under the covers, or get to sit on the couch with a book, or watch a good TV show...

Tomorrow will be better!! =o)

yeah! it was one thing after another. if i were in a better mood i might have laughed over it. in fact, i did alternate between laughing and grumpily thinking "really?" like in the hotel commercial where the couple's hotel was under construction. argh!!

i'm actually looking forward to getting to work tomorrow so that I can get to my stack of files!!

i think it was just the overwhelming number of glitches.

how was your day?!?!

It was surprisingly good until a student that I 'trusted' tried to pull one over on me today - in front of the whole class, but most importantly, in front of the veteran sub. I would have let them get away with it, cuz I wasn't experienced with the situation, but the sub caught it right away. Made me feel like a super-idiot. I left school mad at that student but I gotta let it go. *sigh* But, the good thing, I learned something today and I won't let anyone get past me usingthat trick again!

Yeah, I'm still green, and I got alot to learn... but you live and you learn right??

yes! that was my day, too!! I learned a lot today. that's a good way of looking at it. you remember it better that way, too.

sorry you had a grrrr moment in an otherwise good day, though.

but otherwise, half way through the week!!! yay!!!

OH -did you get that call rescheduled?!?!?! the one that came in during your basement flooding?

Oh yeah! I forgot to tell ya. (sorry!)
I had my phone interview yesterday, which I think went well, but you can never tell with those things... =o)

I've put in my paperwork, and they'll let me know soon. The company isn't even sure that they have been awarded the position yet, so I guess they'll let me know when they find out. Keep me in your prayers!

yay!!!! definately in prayers!!!

I emailed Chris and Pat about references but we were ALL in meetings most of the day today so I didn't get to actually talk to them. I know they got the email, though, cuz I carbonned myself. I'm going to actually mention it to them tomorrow after everything settles down. :)

that's how it usually works

about a monty ago i was still signed up for FULL time class ..... i had just a BAD and tiring day at work .... went to class (back when i had to be there at 3pm) .... was hungry all day .... got into it with my teacher who just REFUSED to listen to what i had to say .... and then when he'd ask me a question and i was in the middle of answering it he would interrupt me EVERY TIME! ..... same thing at work

then when i was leaving the school i noticed that one my lights had gone out .... even though i had JUST changed it ..... the the drive back was crap every light was red .... then on the highway a freakin bored ass cop pulls me over for the light not working .... and i couldn't find my insurance/registration form (which now stays with my psychic paper and sonic screw driver!) ..... so he gave me a ticket and told me you can get pulled over for this 3 times in your life and .... he didn't tell me what the punishment for that was!

so these bad freakin days happen to all of us .... they freakin suck .... but i guess they make us appreciate our weekends where we have loads of fun :D

speaking of: gonna miss you guys this weekend

terribly sorry to hear about your bad day .... trust me, if anyone understand, i do (most of my year has been like that so far!)

i stopped at your place for a little bit after work
so i took out the trash .... hope that helped a little :D

after that i just passed out on the floor and something very interesting happened:

i passed out on the floor for almost 2 hours (yes i was late for class) and when i woke up my head was on my arm and my arm was in the air, i saw my own hand and scared the crap out of myself .... i almost hissed at my own hand out of complete fear .... so from now on, when cassie (cassy?!) does these weird things, i won't make fun of her at all! ..... i understand where she's coming from!

hope your back gets better soon .... and i mean HEAL better .... not just mask the pain better! ..... hope those anti inflamatories don't have any stupid side effect .... hate medications that do!

yea once my brain started to send the proper information into the proper sectors of the processor i realized what had happened .... then i just laughed, got up and passed out on the couch again for another hour or so!

hehe ..... nevertheless .... funny!

oh good! i've slept on the couch before and i think it is comfy so that's okay :)

but now i'm going to have to install hidden cameras in the house to catch stuff like that. just think, Saturday night and Matt gets out the keyboard to show some YouTube clips and there's Raven being scare of his own hand... yes!!

oh damn! .... surveillance cameras!
now you'll catch me stealing all those macintosh parts and equipment and old console game controllers and wires .... and all that junk!

unless you would prefer them gone .... hehe

would be funny to watch that though .... hissing at my own hand there .... hehe

YES!!! LOL!! them going's not a bad thing! except probably waht would go would be the stuff i like. i really couldn't imagine anyeone but Monkeys (or Mike B) wanting the majority of that stuff.

then again, they have 500+ listeners to their podcast so probably there are some more crazies out there...

honestly, as much as i like computers and technology, i do NOT want to collect old ass machines that came out before i was born .... i mean it's REALLY freakin cool that you can get online on an apple machine that came out before the internet was even imagined ..... BUT ..... that doesn't mean i'm going to start collecting them ..... not my thing

for me, having a computer/machines is to clean up clutter into one small unit, rather than MAKE clutter by having 20 units that really serve no purpose

once we have a house, each room is going to have computer access ... but i'm planning on having either tablets and G5 or newer iMacs in there that take up almost no room .... that way if the guests need computer access, it's right there

or if Michelle runs out of her damn black tea, she can log that into the computer in the kitchen ..... it'll update my grocery list by sending a signal from that machine to our local ISP, racing down fiber optic cables at the speed of light to cox cable, bouncing off of a satellite, to Lisbon Portugal where the data packets will be handed off to submerge transatlantic cables, terminating in Halifax Nova Scotia and transferred across the continent via microwave relays back to cox cable into my iPhone so i can stop for some on the way home instead of someone calling me .... then writing it down .... then forgetting it .... etc.

=)

yea ok .. i don't understand code lingo, but i'm a geek to the bone!

okay, sorry you were late for class but THAT WAS FUNNY! Cassie would do that! and if it makes you feel better, I have had my arm fall asleep on my chest and woken up wondering what on earth was lying there and trying to throw it off but having no motor control thanks to it being asleep. that, of course, gave it further evidence that something freaky was lying on my chest and now i couldn't move it.

next time take a nap in the Alice room - that would be more comfy than the floor!! no wonder your back bothers you!!!! the sheets on the bed are clean! (other than cat hair from Cassie...)

the only side effect he warned me about i can deal with - maybe I'll lose weight. :) especially as it's only for two weeks. i HOPE it does the healy thing. i'm keeping an open mind, like you said.

every little comedic moment is important to me between mon-wed (heavy days during the week)

it wouldn't have been so shocking if i had known that it was my hand up there, but not having any function or feeling in it, that was just .... "WHAA!!! ..... who's there! .... last time i checked i was alone when i passed out" ....

if i go in the alice room ..... with the lack of sound and light in there .... you'll probably find me there that weekend ..... AND you'll have to wake me up ... i don't get up from sleeping unless i have to be somewhere or get something done ..... not even for food! ..... i could easily go into hibernation for a long time ..... hehe

yes pls i'm telling you this like you won't notice .... but pls pls .... forgive me and i know i'm being paranoid but monitor everything while you're on those meds ..... those things mask the problem rather than fix it .... it's like not having any feeling in a part of your body and then getting it hurt somehow .... and then it heals incorrectly cause you never felt the need to get it fixed/checked out (or like MS windows telling you that your system is ok, meanwhile there's a problem underneath it all ... you ignore it thinking it's all good ..... next thing you know .... boom all gone!)

so pls pls .... be careful ..... and hope you feel better soon (esp. with garf coming up)

as for my back ..... i'm sure sleeping on add surfaces doesn't help .... i mean after all the samurai slept on plywood floors with a block of wood as pillows ..... they did pretty good (but then again they are japanese and live forever either way!) ... my problems come from years of neglect and sports damage (stupid sports .... hated it then ... knew it wasn't good for me!)
