I have been driving to work most days but left my car in the work parking lot over the long weekend so took the employer provided shuttle today. Alas, I hadn't realized that the earlier of the two shuttles now leaves at 7:50, not 8 and I got there at 755 and had to wait in the rain til the later option at 9:15. I was able to sit under the bus shelter for most of the time but it was very aggravating and now I have to reschedule several meetings.

I went to the DMV to get a learners permit this morning. That was the first annoyance: that although my UK license is perfectly OK for driving in the US (as long as I’m not a resident), it is not suff

My new cowboy boots hurt my feet. I know I have to go through a breaking-in phase, but in the meantime my left pinky toe is cursing at me non-stop.

Concierge at a swanky hotel booking dinner on a Sunday night at a restaurant that is closed on Sunday night. Neat trick, that.

 

Fortunately this was discovered moments before the insanely long trek from hotel to restaurant was embarked on.

Stop bragging you're on vacation. ;) Especially since I haven't left the house in over a week.

 

No one's answering my Aida question. :angry:

Vacation (more like a long weekend) over. Otherwise I would hardly be hanging round here.

 

What Aida question??

When I came to Los Angeles many years ago, I signed on for lots and lots of burgers, Indians (not anticipating their casinos), hot weather, freeways, traffic jams and smog, THE industry and all that entails, light drizzle, high priced real estate, ok drugs, but I did NOT sign on for cold and wet. And we have had too much cold and wet of late. I wish to register my complaint with the highest of high authorities, dieties, whatever. This is not right. OK, rant over. Until the next time.

I'm just grumpy which is probably a sign I'm getting better.

 

Do you know Aida Mollenkamp? ;)

I have successfully avoided getting sick all winter until now. Despite all my efforts, a cold blossomed as the day progressed. I can't get sick right now - I don't have the time. I might be able to squeeze in a day or two in July, but until then, getting sick is out of the question. Needless to say, I'm fucked.

Having just now come through my third this season, you totally have my condolences...

Thank you. Last night I had the most odd, vivid dreams and kept waking up every two hours or so.

 

By 12:30pm I was a mess - staring at my computer screen just lost so I came home and crawled into bed. I have a 10 am meeting tomorrow that I cannot miss. Plus we hosting lunch for 6 on Saturday. I'm not a happy camper.

the cold i had this weekend knocked me out -- the first night i had unbearable chills and after they stabilized i woke up every 45 minutes or so with awful dreams (i was investing in TALF and overlevered) -- i have never been so dispirited to see the clock at only 12:30 am. i was lucid but torpid on day two, and day three i was living in a diving bell but otherwise ok. i'm completely back now, though i should just sign over my next paycheck to kleenex.

you know, a snot rag made from recycled sheets or towels is a more green solution. don't you want the cutlet to grow up in a world with trees?
