Day from Hell...


 I'm having a bad day... 

Why is it that it always coincides with my monthly visit from Aunty Flo?  

Yesterday she arrived on the doorstep completely unanticipated.  I hate it when she does that!  She is usually like clockwork - 28 days to the minute... plus there is ample pre-warning.  Not this time... 

So, I ate my body weight in chocolate... which made me feel a little better - momentarily.  Then I was in sooo much pain all last night I thought I was going to vomit.  Needless to say, I slept like a bitch!  

This morning, everything started going wrong... My laptop wouldn't turn on.  My laptop... like my lifeline to work.  The old, gold little number that has been my saving grace for the past 6 years.  Probably time to upgrade, I hear you thinking.. well I do have a lovely, shiny big fuck off iMac but she's just not the same.

Anyway... the on/off button had been playing up.  Then this morning it completely shat itself.   I manage to hook my Mac up to do the job - much longer and way more painful, but working nonetheless.

Then, my internet slows to almost a stand still.  So, I ring Telstra (my ISP) to find out what's going on.  Last week, I had the same issue and so I upgraded my plan.  I'm put on hold (surprise, surprise) and am informed there are lengthy delays.  I give up after 10 minutes and take my laptop down to the computer repair shop.

I'm so shitty and sore and crappy... I stop and get McDonalds - of course there is only 5 Mcfuckingnuggets in the pack... then look in the pack and it looks like it has been used before - sweet and sour sauce is inside it.  Ewwwwww!  Problem is I've already eaten the five nastily dry little nuggets.

I come home, ring again... on hold for 10 minutes when I start to need to shit... it hits me like a freight train... I definitely need to shit.  I take the phone with me (cause I'm fucked if I'm going to go back down the queue).. I manage to shit, wipe my arse, close the lid and press the button, when my ear hits the side of the phone and disconnects!  ARGGGGGH!!!!

I call back and am shuffled from here to there while people try to palm me off as someone else's responsibilities... there has been some kind of fuck up and my upgraded plan hasn't gone through.  I finally get onto a really great chick who sorts it all out for me and will have me back up and running within 20 minutes - god send!

So, the laptop should be back this arvo and my internet should be back up and running.  I'll also have a copy of XP so I can run my faithful old program on my iMac so I never have to go through all this stress again - back up plan... you should always have a back up plan!

Tomorrow is a new day, right?

Omg, everything you say cracks me the hell up! I wish you had done this post in audio, it would have made my whole damn week!

Hope you're having a better day tomorrow. It can't get much worse, can it?

P.S. I saw your confession on MODG...a jumpsuit to a wedding? Shut the F up!

I did not have a great day myself, and Aunty Flo (as you've named her) has been visiting me as well. Emotions are just magnified during this time for me and it's a real REAL pain!

Tomorrow is a new day!!

Shit. I think your day was worse than that soccer fool. And you probs had to shat so bad suddenly because you were eating someone elses reject nuggets.

And what is an arvo?

Masala Chica said...

Tomorrow is a new day. and it's going to be a whole lot better. i hope. otherwise you are screwed and will have to drink heavily to correct it.

as for the soccer guy's face, what the eff was that? it looks like it should have been flattened to a pancake after that hit. poor fellow. save some sweet and sour sauce for him. or the 6th nugget.

well, doesn't that sound like a joyous day! my computer is pretty fucked, too, but i am learning to just live with it...the piece of crap... ew, and if somebody ate my 6th mcnugget and then gave me the pack, i'd sue! i'd claim emotional distress and mcd's would probably shell out the cash. what a plan.

You need a foot massage and a glass of wine. And your man better get one for you quick if he doesn't want to witness your head doing a full 360.

Bad days and mother nature are such a bitch.

Hope tomorrow is better!

When The Man in the Red Cape makes his monthly appearance, things are destined to go to shit aren't they? It's just the rule of the female world. You feel like shit. You look like shit. Everything turns to shit.

Tomorrow will be better!xx

What a terrible day indeed.
May tomorrow bring sunshine & rainbows. Think Lucky Charms :)-

Computers SUCK!!! I hate it when they don't work properly. I mean really...they are our obsessive lifeline to spend hours upon hours searching, buying, chatting. Lol

Smart Ass Sara said...

I can at least say I have a computer geek for a hubby so that helps. My internet is in/out whenever it feels like it for no good reason. Aunty Flo sucks. We should disown her.

And the soccer pic?? Brings bad memories. LOL!! http://strandupdate.blogspot.com/2010/01/what-happens-when-you-combine-soccer.html

AH! Those are the worst days ever. You deserve an award for making it through, for sure. My lappie died a while back and I wanted to die along with it. Horrible. PS, the picture is great.

Oh karls, i'm sorry. Bad days like that need to be kicked in the ass right out of our lives. Hopefully tomorrow will be a much better day.

Cole said...

Okay, wow, your day did suck! Secondhand McNuggets - eeewwww!!

Your blog is gorgeous, btw.

HeatherLynn said...

oh, dang it all to hell aunt flow...she's the hex on our heads sometimes isn't she?!

And aren't computer problems like the most annoying thing on the planet? Like, you just growl at the idea that this pain in the ass thing is happening to you....and you say things like..."NOT TODAY!!!!!!!" as if ANY day would be better....cuz really, no day is a good day for computer problems as far as i can tell!

in happy news.....my tattoo is getting drawn up this week...won't be long now....i figure if you're having a crappy time, i'd share some happy news, see how that goes over....do you want to smile, or throw things at my head right now?

LMAO. So hilarious. Don't you love one of them day. Hopefully today is better. I swear computer and internet problems can magnify any bad day into one that's horrible.

Stopping by from SITS.

Cybil said...

LOVE your candor Karls! Looking forward to reading more! Hope your week improves!

Amy said...

Days like this suck donkey dick!! Technolgy woes are by far the most irritating and turn me...normally a peaceful gal...into a raging maniac!

Quick story for ya hopefully to make you feel better about your life:

Last night, while trying to feed a fussy baby and wanting to rip my ear drums out at the sound of my mother in law's voice, my father in law prayed (YES, PRAYED!!!) over the TV to come on. Apparently it was broken. This blasphemy went on for about an hour until dumb and dumber realized they hadn't paid the bill and our service was turned off.

I think living in an insane asylum would be better than living with these two.

Oh Karls, I'm sorry. My yesterday was a a bleh day too!!! HERE'S TO TODAY BEING BETTER!! ;)
