Average Jane

Best. Day. Ever.

Hello. Today sucked.

12:27-6:29am- Worst night of sleep, replete with 3 bathroom breaks.

6:30am- Pop out of bed and make breakfast

6:57am- Introduce my hand to the blade of the really sharp knife I’m using to cut my apple for lunch. Bleed profusely.

7:03am- Arrive at Emergency Room.

7:30am – Get text message that office is closed due to water main break. Will have to work from home.

7:45am – Get 4 stitches in the web of my left hand, right between my thumb and index finger. Lesson: Don’t cut an apple into your hand. Your mom was right.

8:20am – Get tetanus shot.

8:35am – Arrive home. Do some work.

10:00am – Go to Safeway to get ibuprofen, and Starbucks to get caffeine.

10:30am – Arrive home again to find that cable and internet are out.

10:45am – Go back to Starbucks to attempt to log onto “free” internet with registered Starbucks card. Am thwarted when I am told to check my e-mail for a verification number. Which I can’t do because… it won’t fucking let me connect.

11:15am – Go to Panera to connect using their free internet. Which is actually just… free.

11:45am- Leave Panera because there’s a lunch rush and I can’t concentrate (and am not eating)

12:00pm – Come back home to see if internet is back up. It is not. Turn around and go back to Panera to download files and work offline from home.

12:15pm – Sit outside at Panera (no seats inside) until it starts raining… on my computer.

12:30pm – Back home to eat lunch and call Comcast.

12:45pm – Finally talk to Comcast “technician” who asks me if my cables are all securely connected. I say, “Yes. It’s not a hardware issue. My cable is out, too.” After researching the situation she informs me, “It appears that there’s an outage.” My reply, “Not to be smart, but I know.”

3:00pm – Internets finally back.  Shockingly productive few hours. So that’s what it was like before people could IM all day…

    If this had happened in Darfur…I think she’d still be waiting for the Internets to come back on.
