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?
