pissed off

And the week just keeps pouring it on.

Because of the new battery that I got installed into the Pimp Daddy Van, my radio needs a code to be entered in order to work... a code I do not have of course. And my dealer? They don't have it on file. Of course. And they're not open on Sundays.

So tomorrow morning, before all this hard work I need to do on Leather Pride Night, I'll be up at 7 AM, driving to the Brooklyn dealership to get the car and and pay them probably another $200 to pull out the radio, look up the code, and tell it to me.

Great.

And then to make this weekend just super, it looks like I'm going to miss Folsom Street East on Sunday, an event I always look forward to all year long. This would be the 1st FSE I have ever missed... I've been there since the very beginning. Instead, I'll be at work spending lots of quality time with Powerpoint.

I'm really hating life right now.

Edit: OK, I negotiated with Honda so that they'll get me my code for free. Go go Jewish negotiation skills!

Writing like a mad man.

I am working as hard as I possibly can to salvage my Sunday trip to FSE. I think if I get enough done tonight, I can avoid coming in on Sunday.

25 slides written so far. Only 20 more to go.

I think I can I think I can...

*whew*

I think I did it. I think I actually pulled it off.

So, to sum up today:

1) Find out about egregious project at noon, panic.

2) 5 minutes later panic goes away, then look at what has to be done, and resolve that your life sucks, and resign to the fact that you won't be able to do what you want to do.

3) 5 minutes after resignation, get cracking at what you have to do.

4) 4 hours after cracking, light is visible at the end of the tunnel. Hope springs eternal once again.

5) 4 hours after hope is reborn, job is completed. Fun is yours.

So, I will be at FSE. Now I just need to figure out if I'm sleeping here in my apartment or in Brooklyn to get the car into the shop to fix the radio before my noon LPN volunteer shift tomorrow.

And my fingers hurt from typing so much today.
