|it kind of looks like the eye of sauron|
but no matter how much i hate march, it's nothing compared to how much march hates me.
people think i'm making this up, but to them i say...
the month started with a screw up at my bank that left me accidentally without access to money.
my workload has been building to a level that could politely be described as insane. i'm always busy, but this month there seems to be a fundamental disconnect between the expectations and reality. [note :: my employers actually acknowledge that this is the case. there just isn't much to be done about it at the moment.]
while st. patrick's day is normally the one bright spot of the month, i won't get to enjoy it, since i got volunteered to work an extra day this week.
in case you've wondered where i've been this week, my computer had a sudden meltdown earlier in the week. if that sounds like something you've heard before, it's because you have. the same thing happened last march.
a payment i was supposed to receive was submitted a day late, which actually resulted in a two-week delay in me getting the money.
an order i had placed with an overseas company was judged to be hazardous material and destroyed for the good of humanity, apparently.
our phone, for no reason anyone can figure out, refuses to make long distance calls, which is kind of a pain when your family lives in another province.
the cable and internet crapped out for three days.
our television remote has been taken by space aliens, which is a pain, because they just don't make televisions with those dials anymore.
after suffering with sciatica for several months, dom has finally been able to move around again. but since the beginning of the month, he hasn't actually been able to walk, so "moving around" means sort of flailing his arms and legs thither and yon.
some really, really graphic conversations that an old friend- who is married to another longtime friend- had with someone who happens to have the same name as me got posted on facebook. not everyone realised that there were two people with the same name. hilarity ensued.
that's all the major things. of course, the month isn't halfway done yet and, if my horoscope is to be believed, the first half of the month was actually the good bit.
