Here ya go Fluke :-)

Here is a new post, since Fluke so sweetly hinted that the flowery hug was getting old...

You know it's going to be a rough night when:
  • You wake up hours before your alarm clock is supposed to go off
  • Your alarm clock doesn't go off
  • The Acorn is so busy you just know that you'll never get served quick enough
  • Your total at the other market you go to for a sandwich is, gulp, $6.66
  • Your boss is picking on you before you even clock in [but at least he's in a good mood for a change]
  • Pg 2&9 of Sunday classifieds won't go through to the negative machine
  • The front section of the newspaper is going to be late getting to you b/c some nutcase decided to hold a lady hostage and then run away and stab himself. This has to be the same nutcase that decided to jump of the bridge a few weeks ago and made the paper late...it just has to be.

And that was all before 8PM....{I start at 5pm}...it just kept getting better and better...the imagesetter {negative machine} would NOT give me the last negative for A section...which was already late b/c of that nutcase. And then...it ran out of film with only one negative left for B Section, which was late b/c of football.

In other news, I guess Paige and I are going to the conference in Ohio after all. We're not gonig as a group anymore...and in fact, the four of us who are going aren't even going to be driving out together, though we will all be camping int he same tent. I'm quite certain we're nuts. We might have fun though. I'll have to put up some sort of "game" post to keep you all occupied while I'm gone...it'll be a week.

I wonder if my favorite pressman will miss me while I'm gone? Probably not, but I can hope right? I don't wonder about you guys...I know you'll miss me...LOL!!!

When all that happens on the same day, it's wise to go back to bed and start again.

yep --- that was all in one night. And I really wish I could have gone back to bed!

The whole $6.66 thing? A few weeks ago, I had the same thing happen to me when I was buying a sub at the grocery store. The cashier looks at me and says, "You know you're probably going to choke on the sub, right?" Very comforting...and high quality customer service to boot.
