grrrrr

this has not been my morning.*

i was woken up by a phone call, which really isn't a bother- i'd just hit snooze for only the second time, and this gave me an excuse to pry my lazy butt out of bed.

after i finished with the call, i decided to go work out, since i was up anyway. working out necessitates appropriate clothing (check), gum (check), and my discman (wait a minute- where the hell's my discman? it's always right here arrgggh).

no problem, i know where the old one is. i'll just have to find batteries for it.

hello- what's this? an appointment card for the dentist? i was wondering when my next appointment was...

...yesterday? that can't be right. they didn't call- they always call to remind me. wait a minute- i think we changed the appointment the last time i was there....but to when....?

(i am sincerely hoping it wasn't changed to yesterday, because i'll get charged an arm and my right leg up to the knee for missing it.)

okay. i've got batteries. i've got the old discman, which for some reason refuses to believe it has batteries....%&@#.

i am clearly not meant to hit the treadmill today. furthermore, at the rate i'm going, i half expect my lease to be drawn up for more than usual, my car to have spontaneously combusted in my parking lot, and one of my favorite shoes to be missing (probably hiding with my discm-wait a minute-the last time i worked out, i had to bring boxes back to the apartment, and i put my discman in my blue adidas bag so i could carry everything back....

*runs to living room*

well, son of a gun. had i thought about that 45 minutes ago....

like i said, not my day.

*i have a post i need to compose about last night, but i have neither the time nor the motivation for it, so perhaps it'll appear later this evening...or, more likely, tomorrow.

Duff, take the discman off of Hold and it will work just fine.

take it off of "hold", huh? i would have tried that, except my broke-down discman couldn't get past debating whether or not it had batteries.

so there, mister smartypants.

(thanks for giving me an excuse to use that insult....it's been years.)

Discman? How... quaint. (snicker)

Hey, Joe? Not everyone wants an Ipod.

Duff, I have a discman, too. I think it needs to be replaced by a newer model. Sometimes it debates whether to play the disc in it or not. The other day at the mall, it decided not to play it, and I was not a happy grrl...
