Not a stellar start to my day . . .

I woke up this morning, turned off the alarm . . . and suddenly it was over half an hour later and my mom was knocking on my bedroom door to make sure I was alive. So I jumped out of bed, took a hurried shower, had difficulty with my contact lenses (of course), and dried my hair just enough to be inadequately dry and weirdly wavy. When I got out the door (after having to run upstairs a few times to grab things that I forgot), I discovered a dent in the driver's side door of my car. It's a dent of the variety that one finds when someone has opened his own car door with slightly too much force, but it's a large dent for that sort. Man, that's irritating. I'm always so careful, but there's nothing I can do to prevent other people from being . . . people. Sigh.

I'm amazed that I managed to drive to work without incident.

So now I'm here and I'm drinking my coffee and I'm about to put on a Rufus Wainwright CD and do a massive bout of data entry.

Maybe later I'll enlighten you on Erica's conception of the ice cream truck purchases of the Fellowship.
I feel: crankycranky
I am listening to: potential Rufus Wainwright

Oh, gah. I hate bad starts to the day - even if things then get good, you still know that they started off crappy. *hugs*

The Fellowship and the icecream truck sounds intreguing. Also, I love your icon.

Thank you! For the hugs and for the icon-appreciation.

And the Fellowship ice cream thing is one of those things that I know to be funny, but I'm not sure how well it will translate into print. Ah well, that's rarely stopped me in the past, so stay tuned!

I'm terribly sorry to hear about your car door. Poor car.

But O!MySquealingGeekDeity, I love and covet your icon.

Hee hee! Thanks!

(I have to say, of all the icons I've made, this was by far the easiest.)

Yeah, I'd like to add my voice to the chorus singing the praises of your icon. It kicks so much ass I can barely stand it.
