Today ... is not starting out right.
~ massive freaking migraine headache wakes me up at 6:00... I am totally out of medicine... I don't even have advil in the house.
~ by 7:00 I've used up stretching, and hot packs on my neck... and started rummaging for any kind of medicine... find some ASA tabs and pop a couple...
~ 7:30 find a two year out of date (best before...) imitrix (migraine medicine) and pop that...
~ get to my docs office at 9:00 because they can't renew scripts over the phone any more... most likely because they only get paid by the Canada Health Plan if I show up at the office... so why help out over the phone?
~ shoot a nasal injector at her office... (doctor sample) and boogie to work.
~ go through a massive frustration zone trying to phone home and dealing with a busy signal... this, of course, only happens when you start frustrated.

I am a donkey on the edge man....

Ok... and DIG THIS... my work lap top (the system I use for "corporate work") blue screening every time I log in... of course, this would happen today.

I swear... I need a DO OVER on today!!!

wearing
~ blue ftls
~ black kinda cargo pants
~ dk blue t with a black sweater (red stripe!)
planning
~ ok... this day is just not working for me...
~ anything I plan... is just going to fuck up.
~ project work abounds and I have to have a TOC done by this afternoon.
~ home server (corto.ca) backup scheduled for tonight in anticipation of installing fedora
wishing
~ I didn't have a fucking headache... actually it's subsiding now... but it's being replaced by the numb thing that the migraine meds do to me...
~ to send some supportive vibes over to dinkydo
~ that the hot chocolate police don't drag alcestis away... but if they do... I'm hoping for video.
~ for better health to find it's way into the home of pixiecup...
~ I could shadow pro_jenny at her work place and bring the smack down on the next co-worker that tries to intimidate her...
~ to point out that designergirl is really quite a sweet heart... :)
~ and to hold a few random hopes kumi... gets herself centered today.

Ok... it's been about an hour since I started this...
(I write some of this... deal with work... read a bit of lj... then write some more and then repeat the process until I'm ... done.)
Headache is totally gone but I'm getting the weird tingles that the meds give me...
Frustration bubble has faded... got through the phone line to z and now I'm holding a fresh cup of coffee...
If only some geek would show up and fix my freaking computer I'd be able to get some work done.

Are you late?
Having trouble getting something cleaned up?
Is it hard to slot that thing into your busy schedule?
As you go through your day... look around.
When you see a woman with a one, two, three, or (gasp) four kids in tow...
and she's on time for a doctors appointment
or getting groceries, or doing anything...
Stop for a second and realize how seriously you need to be bitch slapped till you cry...
and suck it up, you have no excuses.

Ok... I'm going to work on the "do over" thing and try to find a new mood for the day.
see ya.
