I’m going to go insane.

August 31st, 2007 · No Comments

Okay, so. This week has been so slow. And today has been slower. There are several reasons for this.

The first is that I haven’t been sleeping well (for reasons unknown), so I am dead tired. Going to see Hairspray at 9:30 PM on Wednesday night did not help this situation.

The second is that it’s Friday, and Fridays by definition go slowly.

The third is that it’s the Friday before a long weekend, and therefore must go twice as slowly as a normal Friday.

The fourth is that the phones have been pretty quiet today, so I haven’t had as much to do.

The fifth is that I’m at a place on my current knitting project (the shawl that I did as “practice” for Jen’s and that I’m finally getting around to finishing) where I need to look at the instructions again, and I forgot them. So I haven’t been able to knit to pass the time.

The sixth is that my allergies are acting up a bit, so I’m drowsy from Zyrtec and wearing my glasses instead of my contacts, which is giving me a bit of a headache.


Hearing “One More Night” by Phil Collins, followed immediately by “How to Save a Life” by Fray for the SECOND time today hasn’t helped matters AT ALL.

Although I did just get a slight lift. I’m sitting here typing this entry and I get a call from our Recreational Therapist. It went like this (I swear, this is nearly verbatim):

Phone: *double rings to show it’s an internal call*
Me: *sees caller ID* Hi, Jaime.
Jaime: Hi. Goblet of Fire is the third one, right?
Me: Nope. It’s the fourth.
Jaime: Oh. What’s the third?
Me: Prisoner of Azkaban.
Jaime: Oh. Oh, yeah! Right there. Okay. Thanks! Bye.
Me: Bye. *hangs up* *giggles*

Now if only the next 20 minutes could be as enjoyable as that 20 seconds. . .
