it's a beautiful new day, hey, hey

This day has gone awry. Terribly awry.

First, my alarm didn't go off. I woke up on my own at 8:30 a.m. (amazing!), and figured, "I'm going to be late, but it could be much worse. It's only 8:30 a.m."

I made it to work by 9:30 a.m. Upon my arrival, I was greeted with more work than it would be humanly possible to do in one day. I sloughed through it.

I took a lunch hour with the Taco Tuesday crew. It was the highlight of my day.

At 1:30 p.m., I was back in the office, stomach bulging (yes, bulging) over my belt. I felt like a fat cow.

I stayed at work till 6:15 p.m. Whence leaving work, the shuttle that takes me to my car (parked approximately 1 mile away) was just rounding the corner, heading away from me. Yep. Just missed it. It was either wait 15 more minutes for another or walk it. I walked it. It sucked.

Upon arriving home, I decided to hop online and pop a veggie burger in the toaster oven. 1 hour later, I started to feel hungry and noticed a certain burning aroma wafting through the air. I HATE it when I pop food in the oven and forget about it.

So, now, I've got another pattie in the toaster oven, and I should go eat it before it too is burned to a crisp.

*sigh* ::head above water, head above water::

Man Boutros, at least TRY to be a little sensitive. There's definitely more to the world than hot bloggers. I know you were kidding (I hope you were, at least), but for real, CALM DOWN ABOUT IT, lol. Sorry you had such a shitty jay Jennifer, I have had a few of those myself lately, so I know how you feel. I hope things feel better tomorrow. :)

I'm sorry you had a bad day, babe. Sorry I didn't get to see you, but when I got home you were asleep. If it's any consolation to you, I had to work every show today but two in a twelve hour shift. Josh and I traded off jib and handheld all day and in between I had to go upstairs and run the robotics. Tomorrow better not suck as much.

I WAS just joking - sarcasm didn't come through as I hoped. That's why I also wrote a genuine "hope your day goes better tomorrow".

Lots of people having shitty days lately. Maybe it's a bug going around.

Here's hoping it's all sunshine and roses for a while.

So sorry to snap. It was a sarcastic snap, though. :^) There's no sunshine or roses today... just more work ahead of me. *sigh*

I have a shitty day ahead of me, too. It's all jewelry and bedding shows which means I'm probably going to fall asleep at the console. Oh, and Karla called me at 8:00 this morning to wake me up and ask if I wanted to do cameras this morning. I didn't answer...

I fell asleep at work the other day with my hands on the keyboard. When I finally woke up, there was some odd error message I had never seen before, and half my keys were acting like shift was stuck. Luckily, at that very moment, the computer dick was walking behind me and didnt ignore me when i called for him. He did some weird 3 finger keyboard trick and reset it.

Later, I fell asleep again with my hands on the keys, while pressing a button that adds. It goes in increments of .125. When I started it, it was at zero, when I came to, it was at like 56.250.

I need more rest.
