The Day Is Kicking My Ass

I went to bed early last night in the attempt to get an early start on today. Well, five minutes after I get up, my power goes out. To make matters worse, it was heavily overcast this morning, so I had very little light in my apartment. Nothing like trying to apply makeup in the dark.

I call the power company and find out that power should be back on by two. Grrr. Decided to make the best of it and went to the store to pick up some last minute items for my trip. As I'm going through the checkout, I notice one of my items was undercharged. Trying to be honest, I inform the cashier that the item was half off $9.99, but only rang up at $2.60. He gives me a blank stare, takes the item out of the bag, looks at the price and says "So, half off $9.99 would be, uh, like $5?" Uh, yeah. Then he proceeds to tell me there must be another special because that's what the computer rang it up at. Fine, I was just trying to be honest, sorry I caused you so much trouble, I'm sure your bosses would love to know how YOU'RE short changing them.

Luckily, when I got home around Noon the power was back on. After eating and watching the pliot episode of Miss Match that I never got around to watching, I hop on the computer. What do I find? LJ, as usual, is being a pain in the ass. It only took me fifteen minutes to add some of savaa's gorgeous new icons. *Hopefully* they'll display properly. And another fifteen minutes trying to be able to post this. Again, Grrrrr...

Anyway, as many of you know, I'm off to New York tomorrow. So, for five days I'll be without internet access. Wahhhhh. I won't even attempt to catch up on all the LJ entries I missed upon my return. I might backtrack a bit to Wednesday to see how everyone felt about Angel. And, I'll have to find cousinjean's updates for The Butterfly Effect. That's one of the things I'm really bumbed about missing while I'm gone. :( If you haven't yet started reading it, go now and do so.

Oh, and lynnb and the_royal_anna I'm counting on you two to inform me if I missed any juicy spoilers while I'm away. ;)

I will try to check back in before I head off for Mom's house later tonight. I don't plan on being in chat or on IM though, so let me just say how much I'll miss you all and will be anxious to catch up on my return. :)
