Cranky today

It must be that my cold is hanging on, but I am having trouble sleeping which makes me cranky. Some other things happened to make me annoyed today also.

Right now I can only remember one. When I broke the screen to my iPhone I bought a case (actually 2 but one was cheap and I threw it away). A very pretty purple case that slides on the top and bottom so you can put it on a dock without taking the case off. Today I noticed that it is breaking. It upsets me because I paid a lot of money for it.

Zagg has cases, so I went online, they were having a sale today, on invisibleSHIELD, ZAGGsmartbuds, and ZAGGsparq. Not cases though, sigh. Since the smartbuds Tigger got me are defective I ordered a pair of them, with the discount code from the Twitter sale, I don’t know why since I’ll be getting my money back, but I had to pay full price for a new case. No shipping though, but they didn’t have any pretty purple ones. This also upsets me.

The case is necessarily because I am notoriously rough on my electronics.

That is all, says she.

Obviously not this one. Another blog I had that I was doing nothing on. I think I started it because I was having problems with my Yankee blog and started it to ‘save’ the posts.

After I deleted the blog I got this message from WordPress:

Thank you for using WordPress.com, your blog has been deleted. Happy trails to you until we meet again.

Not to worry WordPress, I have 5 other blogs with you.

Today I went to work, yesterday I stayed home sick, either a cold (which is what I truly think it was) or bad allergies. So for most of the I lounged around in bed, had a lazy day. When I got hungry I realized I had to go out because there is very little food in my apartment. Of course I wanted Mac N Cheese, which meant that first I had to go to a store to buy a pan so I could make dinner. While I was there I picked up some other things I need. Then to the grocery store, and I bought all the boxes of gluten-free mac-n-cheese (well what if they stop carrying it?). When I got home I made some and ate it (not all, I put some away for lunches). Then I turned the game on to watch the Yankees lose (well I didn’t want to watch them lose, but that’s what happened).

Work was going fine, Jean came in and asked if I had heard anything about lay-offs. Noooooo, I really wasn’t thinking about lay-offs. Apparently people were notified by e-mail, I don’t know if that is even legal. 16 from my department. 1 from our Region. Not me, I have avoided detection by the powers that be once again. The big boss invited everyone to happy hour, or as she changed it to after the everything that happened, “Solidarity Hour”. I wasn’t going to go because it was raining, then it stopped and so I went. Had a relatively nice time (I mean it was work people, not my usual crowd). On the way I stopped at the Asian restaurant on the corner and got some spring rolls and steamed dumplings. Pretty good I thought.

Since yesterday was the last game of the regular season and tomorrow starts the ALDS tonight I updated my page of Yankee Records, check it out if you get a chance.

That’s all, says she.

Back to WW

Em gave me the location of the nearest Weight Watchers meeting, tonight I finally went to one. The last time I was at a WW meeting was July 16. In the time between then and now, I only gained 0.4 lbs. My new leader said that was actually a good thing. She started the meeting asking us, “Have you ever asked yourself, ‘Why am I here?'” Well I know why I’m there, cause WW works. Then she asked for reasons to lose weight, everybody came up with good ones, and she handed out this sheet.

25 Reasons to Lose Weight

Goshdarnit!

Something has gone wrong with our servers. It’s probably Matt’s fault.

We’ve just been notified of the problem.

Hopefully this should be fixed ASAP, so kindly reload in a minute and things should be back to normal.

What am I gonna do about the post I just lost? HUH MATT?

just an update

Yesterday I went to the game. The Yankees lost and I got soaked. I was also late to my nail appointment even though I left before the game was over. I got stopped by a police officer in Grand Central who wanted to know if they won. I couldn’t tell him.

So I was late to my nail appointment. I didn’t lose any sleep over it. Then after I stopped to eat something. Jalapeño poppers. I have been thinking of them since last Saturday. So I ordered some and some Jameson Irish Whiskey, which turned out to be the perfect end to my day. Except when I went online later, I could not remember what I wanted to do!!

More Hurricane Irene


At the house where I used to live, the basement got flooded. Today I went up to help, since I did use to live there and my stuff did cause some problems. They all hate me now. (not really, or not anymore, some of them have gotten over it) I took a little video, you can also view it on YouTube along with the rest of my videos.
