What a suck ass day that was.

I feel like I just got screwed with my pants on.

(Thank you, thank you very much.)

Damn. If I had known today was really going to be *as* bad as it was, I probably would've swerved into a tree on my way to work just to get out of it.

First, going to meetings when you can't hear? A big old fat waste of my fucking time. Not even joking, not even a little bit. I should have had a freakin' interpreter or a court stenographer or something.

Second, finding out that my friend was just fired and escorted from the building for doing little more than having a different communication style than her boss? So not fucking cool. I understand it's the nature of the business, blah, blah, fucking blah. I still should not have to comfort my friend in the fucking parking lot because her manager practices Bad Management 101 and has the tolerance level of a gnat.

Third, finding out some of the production issues that happened while my brain was leaking out of my ears was unsettling. Considering half of them were self service application and security issues (yeah, that would be my "specialty"), you could say I was less than pleased.

Fourth, I got *nothing* done today. Zilch. Zero. Nada. Nothing.

Now would be about the time to shoot me.

Come 5 o'clock I said screw it and went to the Fish for a few beers with a friend. I had a good time talking but I needed about 6 more and I couldn't have them because I had to drive home. I really would've liked to have taken the coward's way out tonight and poured myself into bed after a night of heavy drinking and debauchery.

But I didn't. I instead came home at a decent hour, took care of the dogs and promptly sat down to catch up on homework. I was actually quite the productive little beaver. Personally, I think the beer helped.

Oh, and George, I *was* in your head. If you want some real fun, come visit mine. It's quite the party, if I do say so myself. And I still have no fucking idea what a long days night means. Are you referring to Blue Oyster Cult? Are you saying I need to wait until the summer solstice? If so, that's sooo not going to work for me. Please explain.

My big accomplishment of the night, besides homework? I got the recycling out. Since it's picked up every other week, I usually forget and only get it right when I have about 2 months worth of paper in the kitchen and both recycling bins overflowing. Not this time. This time I nailed it.

Hey, after such a cluster fuck of a day, I need to give myself props where I can.

I'm going to bed.
