SUCK ASS morning!

Spotty Chop and I leave the house at 6:30am so I can get him to daycare, 45 minutes away, and then I drive to the train station 3 min away to catch the 8:00am train so I can get into work by 9:00am. When I get to the train station and go to grab my stuff and hop on the train I notice that my BRIGHT PINK backpack is not with me. I left the frelling thing at home. I have been taking the train for 15 years, this is the first time I have forgotten my bag. So I drive 45 minutes back to my house and there is the bag. I hop on Boy toy’s computer to see when the Franklin trains are running and luckily there is one at 9:08 or something like that. I fly out of the house and go to the train station, about 10-15 min away. I grab my backpack and go looking for my pocketbook so I can get my money for parking and the trip in. The Needham train is several dollars cheaper. No Fin bag. Now I have to go digging through the car and thank god my car isn’t clean, I find some crumpled $1’s and a few quarters. I crackberry a few people in the office until I finally get my boss, everyone else is in NY. I’m cracking him my saga and I say,” I need money to get home”. He says fine. During the hour long trip into Boston I figure I can do some work. The battery on my laptop is drained. The crackberry has stopped synching my calendar, so I have no meetings or notifications of meetings and I miss 2 big ones. I frelling finally get to work and see that my pocketbook is sitting on my desk. At least it was here. The rest of the day has been…A goat rodeo, what I started saying when my dad said “cluster fuck is not professional, come up with something else”. I just want this day to end so I can go home and snuggle with Spotty. Or have ice cream…either would be good right now.

And then I sent facilities this little gem…


26T3 ladies room. The left sink is running again, I don't know who the moron is that can't figure out that the sink doesn't work and keeps washing her hands, especially since the left hand soap dispenser can't be bothered to give you enough soap to wash a gnat. Could someone take the sink away, maybe then the idiots will stop using it. Thanks so much!

I wonder if anyone can tell I am a bit cranky?

When I have days like this, I find myself wishing I could hit the big red reset button and start the whole thing over. Ah, if only I had the power!

Your schedule makes me tired. The CrackBerry must be a serious help given your commuting - I'd be dead without mine, and I work from home!

Before I forget, I wanted to follow up on a snippet from comment you posted to my blog earlier this week:

"As I am new to your blog I don’t know if you ever give tips on taking a good picture, but the ones I have seen of yours are impressive."

I'm always happy to give tips and otherwise give back wherever I can. I have developed as a writer and photographer thanks to the generous help of so many mentors. So it's only fair that I pay it forward. Ask away.

And if you're still having trouble with the calendar syncing, PIN me: I'm apparently a bit of a know-it-all with this stuff.

Thanks Carmi, let me see if I can come up with an intelligent question for you.
