Antioch Homecoming 2007 4

Good news/Bad news

Good news:

Because I am a geek, I am now the proud owner of a pair of these:

The Swim Glove

I couldn't sleep last night and, since I was awake so early, I went to the pool before work (something I don't usually do on my early days) and gave them a try. I think I dig them. They make me feel like a Navy Seal. Or a duck.

Bad news:

Why couldn't I sleep? Because the surprise going away party I was organizing for draw_in_yellow totally fell apart. It was supposed to be tomorrow night, only she's going to be out of town tomorrow night. When I heard this I broke down and told her what we'd been planning, but it was too late to change her plans. Adding to the list of things that suck about the situation, by the time I arrived at work today, Young Mike had already scrawled "cancelled"* all over the flyers I'd made. I'd told draw_in_yellow I'd give her one (I still will), but they're not so cute anymore, and I don't have an original to make another copy from.

OK. I'm going back to work now.

*I always thought it was spelled "canceled." Google seems unsure.

Crazy Cat Lady, Here I Come.

In the words of momacress, "I'm a kooky old lady!"

Why? Because I had a complete and total meltdown, panicked, called Medical Center Opticians back, and ordered both pairs of glasses.

I freaked the hell out and called my Mother in tears, and she swooped in and arbitrated. Man, she is so fucking fantastic. I've just had such a miserable 24 hours, and she knows it too. I really wanted to do something nice for draw_in_yellow before she went away, and I totally fucked it up. I got all weepy on Dan today too, but he understood what was happening and let it go.

Gah. I feel like such a dork.
