Bizzare observations at 2234 hours...
You have not lived until you've had your mother on the other end of a cell phone when you scream at the top of your lungs, "Jesus Christ, don't puke on the wall, you stupid cat!" You guessed it, Ra decided to sick up his dinner while I was trying to have a conversation with my mom. I think it goes without saying that I told her I'd call them back tomorrow since I had a minor pet emergency to deal with. I swear there's some hack in Hollywood who writes the scripts for some sort of dark comedy, and the Universe feels compelled to turn them into my life. I mean seriously, does anybody else on the planet own a projectile-vomiting cat?
Tomorrow is the Staff Meeting of Pain. Two hours in a locked room with AC and the other insane coworkers I have on my team. DR, my supervisor (the sane coworker whom I have an excellent rapport with) will be out tomorrow so I'll have nobody to turn to for support when the craziness gets out of hand.
I'm thinking of trying to have a sit-down with a manager who's been making snarky comments about me ever since Sunday morning's debacle with the DBA. I'm not sure if I should try or not, because I'm not sure I'd be able to avoid getting confrontational and I'm even less sure what I could accomplish or what I'm hoping to accomplish. I guess I just value that manager's opinion, and want to make things right again with him. Yay indecision.
Despite my earlier predictions I put in 65 minutes on the treadmill tonight, and appear to have twinged my ankle a bit.
I get paid tomorrow, this is a good thing. I think I'll make minimum payments to the outstanding card so that I can stash a bit more cash into savings this month.
I'm looking forward to shooting pool at Bumpers tomorrow night. I'm not so sure I'm looking forward to dinner at the Continental, because I crave eggs, and the eggs there are so darn hit-or-miss. Usually it's miss, much to my chagrin.
I went out for lunch today with DR, DP and RW. We went to the Kopper Kitchen, a place I've mentioned before. I had really good scrambled eggs today for lunch, along with some really good ham.
I greatly miss seeing that special somebody online. She's been absent for about two weeks now because of a number of reasons. I hope she's taking care of herself and knows that she's missed quite a lot, and quite often.
