BLOG OF POOTENHEIMER... Fear it, Love it
Oooh, and I'm MAD. Frustrated, by lots of little things going wrong. Even though there is some good stuff going on, as well. But all day long, it's been maddening small things. Starting with me not finding my phone. The cordless one, not cell. "Why don't you call it?" Yes, I WOULD have, if the batteries hadn't already DIED. Dead batteries mean phone doesn't ring. Or respond to pages. So I had no idea where my phone was. And I had to work on this project (employment project) for most of the day, so I'd be at my computer, dealing with the problems THERE... the phone would ring, and that meant if I wanted to answer, I'd have to open the door, dash across the not-so-open-spaced room, and pick up the corded phone. And of course, the phone would ring a lot. And it was never for me. Which made me mad. Wasting precious time answering phone calls that needed not to be answered. LACK OF EFFICIENCY. I don't like it, especially when I need to be efficient.
Although I did get to meet the new kung fu guy today. That was my training for the evening, which I'm very glad I got. He was actually pretty cool - we got along nicely, and I think he liked me okay. Considering what he said about me in his Live Journal. Here, I'll share a bit of it with you:
Yeah, so it's all about meeting new people. Especially exceptionally cool people. It's also a plus when said cool people can kick my ass. (I now have a giant bump on my leg, which will probably become a giant bruise by tomorrow morning. However, I think I learned quite a bit tonight, so I'm okay with that.) That's one of the reasons why I want to get out of high school now. I want to meet new people.
'Nuff said. It's always fun to find people to share your passions with. And I'm definitely passionate about kung fu. To give him credit, I got a small bruise on my shin, as well. Although there's a very good chance it'll be gone by the tournament. He was a lot of fun, though, and we'll likely keep in contact.
I did also get a nice burger to follow up on that. Mmm, burgers. I'm very glad Wendy's drive-through is open late. Food after exercise is very good stuff. I did also get the final tickets for my upcoming trip to Canada. Yes, to the big kung fu gathering. It shall be epic. Hotel tickets done, although I'm a bit poorer now. Tax return returning now wouldn't hurt. So all in all, the day wasn't a total source of flummoxing. Which is good.
Okay, it's late. Time to try to sleep, so I can work ALL DAY tomorrow, with a short dinner break for my mom's birthday, which is technically today. Happy birthday, Mom! The random link today is sponsored by your local Slashdot. Something plenty of people would be interested in.
