March 20, 2006

Today has been phenomenally crappy and annoying, and I am Grouchy Groucherton about it all.

    Turn that frown upside down.

    I love it when people say that to me. It really works. It doesn’t make me want to stab them in the neck at all.

    Here’s a distraction. It’s been a long time since I laughed so hard as I did at this post and the accompanying comments:

    Tuesday:
    Accounting Dept. gets me involved in 2 hrs of their work – ’cause they’re lame – whiners…

    Waited 20 minutes for a bean and rice burrito and a taco at 11:15am (pre-rush)

    Deciding to take lunch very, very early and eat everything, I sit down on a chair at the long table in the lounge – a chair containing a puddle of water in the molded seat.

    Now I can’t get on track for work. Try anyway; meet with new temp to instruct her on what I’ll need done. She takes twice as long as expected and does half as much to something that needed doing last week.

    Now it’s 2am, Wednesday and I can’t sleep or address this work I’ve brought home.

    yes, I am still sick and at home coughing my stupid dumb head off. :(

    at least the TiVo got here today.

    hoorah… I was thinking today about writing your web address in all my text books before i sell them back, and then someday someone might buy my books and stumble upon it.. and visit you

    then i thought it’d be easier if you had stickers, and i could just put them on the inside cover…

    it’s the greatest idea EVER.. eh? English

    I’m awfully late adding a comment, but I direct your attention to this thrilling distraction:
