This is me right now. It's been a day from HELL in myriad ways. And the past couple of days were like warmups to today, which will explain why there has not even been A BLOG POST FROM ME.
My work laptop has been rather "testy" of late. So it had been getting worse and worse, and usually when I'm at the home office I used my kickbutt, pimped out PC instead of the work laptop. Well, I brought the work laptop back to our offices and suffice it to say, after 2 days of two IT guys at our firm working on it, it is DEAD. Totally DEAD. The first day I gave it to them it wasn't fixed, but still running, so I took it back to my hotel, planning to blog that night- only to realize after dinner and getting to my hotel room that I FORGOT MY VERIZON BROADBAND USB at the office.
People; ME without INTERNET ACCESS IS A HORRIBLE HORRIBLE THING. I actually TURNED THE TELEVISION ON. I never watch TV in my hotel rooms. Ever. First of all because usually all they have are 17 channels of ESPN and C-SPAN and second of all, well, I'm online all the time. So, me in that room without access was like a fish out of water. Then, after they tried to revive the laptop most of today (which meant that I was without a laptop all day!!! All DAY!!!!!), it now doesn't work in any way- the wireless adapter is shot, so I can't connect wirelessly OR with my VZW Broadband! TERROR. Absolute and sheer terror. I was in the airport like, "What do I DO with an hour and a half of not being able to use this???"
I am four steps closer to Botox today after this arrangement. I felt like I was betraying all of you, my kittens! And then, to make matters worse, I had to FLY UNITED HOME. Let me just tell you that United Airlines is consistently the WORST AIRLINE ON THE PLANET. I have NEVER had a good experience with them, in fact every single time I fly them now, there is some catastrophe where the entire overbooked cranky plane hates the pilot, the flight attendants and United in general.
Suffice it to say I was bumped and threatened to be canceled (along with about 20 others) three or four times- and then United offers a $400 voucher to fly out of Dulles airport (we were at Reagan) the next day! ###&%^@Y&*($!(*%&@(%^Y_
I'm not going to elaborate any more on this because I can't share the story here and NOT swear.
Dear United Airlines, Stick a sock in it. Love, Kelly
Naughty words Kelly. Naughty. ;-0
So, I am FINALLY home and had to let you know that I wasn't ignoring your comments and I wasn't dead, just temporarily laptop-less. I'm thinking of buying several backup laptops so this never occurs again.
GOOD NEWS!! GOOD NEWS!! My tummy troubles are GONE! I am on day 2 of being able to eat and not die of pain afterwards!! AMEN!! Thank you all for your prayers and well-wishes!! Time to CRUSH some workouts!! OOOHHHHHHHHHHHHH YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!
QUESTION OF THE DAY: Do you have a favorite airline?? Do you have one that you HATE?? Do tell!!
