Yesterday was a super busy day. I was up early to do the breakfast and lunch and wound up the kitchen chores early morning. As I sat down with my breakfast, I switched my pc on to have a look at the emails. (Yeah, I am that kind of person who replicates all their mails at home before leaving for work. It’s practical you see... at home I have broadband. I can then look at them, plan my day and reply to them at ease during the commute to work, which is on a data card bandwidth) The deluge of mails kept me on the table till about 9.45 at which I shrieked, got ready in 5 minutes (ok, ok, it was 15 not 5) and was out of the door. Reason for the shriek? I had an 11:00 am con call and only a miracle was going to take me from my place to office in under an hour. I called mom on the way, chatted for a while and used the painful red lights to apply nail paint ;) while cursing the delay it caused me.
It wasn’t a day for miracles and so the call started while I was still en route. Everyone heard the honking of
’s insane traffic in the few minutes I was speaking! The day went on normally till about lunch, usual fire fighting, calls, etc… all in the day’s work. That was when hubby told me his credit card statement had similar entries from the grocery store and on two separate days. We spent a good half an hour before calling it quits. I spent an insane amount of money this month on grocery L I think we need a budget…
I was to deliver a training post lunch and when I landed in the room, neither the projector, not the LAN ports were working. The IT and admin were happily absconding and so I delivered this training from my desk! Can you believe it? The 4 trainees sat behind me and peered at the screen over my shoulder. There were some participants on call as well and we had to halt the training every time one of my neighbours had a visitor or a call. One of the neighbours was also my boss and I have a feeling he was listening in all the time. About 5 minutes into the call one of the remote participants gets another call on her phone and puts us on hold. Music blared thru the speakers and no one could hear a thing. We had to wait for a good ten minutes before her highness was back. She wasn’t even answering her cell! God, some ppl just forget these little things. After the training I was random facebooking and discovered Bejeweled Blitz! Loved that game… am addicted in a mere day!!! This addiction caused me to stay at office and take my 7.30 call from office… (I did kick myself when I realised the time)
So I got back home at 9.30 and made dinner… it was a hasty affair and by the time I wrapped up, HBO had started showing Princess Diaries. How I enjoyed watching that one. Me and hubby laughed all the way to the climax. This is one movie where I liked the film better than the book. The other one was The Devil wears Prada. The Anne Hathaway factor perhaps? At one, I was ready to crash but hubs wanted to cuddle. That was when the villain stepped in. It was this nasty boil on my underarm that’s been giving me a rough time for over a week. I was almost in tears even if my arm moved an mm. And that’s how I slept – worried over next morning’s lunch and teary due to the boil.
The only happy thing that happened in the movie… ah, not a very good thing I’d say… I have to visit my tailor. He messed with the last dress I gave him and the alterations are still pending. And I am due to wear that dress on Wednesday… oh Golly!
