today's maigrey list
So what did I do today

  • Browbeat UPS into leaving my new coats at the door, after the earful I gave the back counter this morning

    • They got the notice at 10 pm on Friday, but couldn't pull it off the truck

    • Yet the back counter guy says that if I called at 8 am, they could have pulled it off the truck for me

    • He didn't have an answer when I said, so if you got the notice at 10 pm on Friday, that means you had the notice before 8 am today, and could have pulled it off the truck, right?

    • Did I mention how much I really hate ups?

  • Ran the Meeting Marathon from 9:30 to 12:30

    • I tried to be an over achiever and go to a meeting that didn't exist, thanks to the fact I couldn't sync my pilot with my outlook

  • Spent two hours sweet talking, cajoling, threatening and then screaming at my computer, as it did not want to hotsync with my dang pilot.

    • The score was computer: 5, maigrey: 0.

    • Then I whipped out my registry editing mojo and pimpslapped that damn computer back into line. Beeeyotch.

    • End score: computer: 5, maigrey: 6. Take that, I tell you what.

  • While I wasn't rebooting, I had the pleasure of stalking -- er, talking, that's it, to the entertaining gopherbomb

    • He challenged me to an answer a question with a question game, and came to the realization that yes, my name is right there in the dictionary next to "stubborn"

      • No, really!

    • It was a good thing he gave in when he did, though, as I almost laughed out loud while on the phone with one of my employees talking about serious stuff.

  • I started on my trek from San Diego to New York

    • 1.1 miles down, 2,371 to go

    • I'm only 29 miles behind you, bizetsy! Better watch out behind you!

  • Laundry: in progress.

    • Jeans take ferrrever to dry, lemme tell you

  • dishes done

    • even the evil ones that require hand washing

    • I really hate hand washing dishes; always have.

  • Garbage taken out, wahoo!

  • Oh, and watched The American Embassy.

    • It's my new guilty pleasure.
    • It's the crush I now have on the Doug character. Yummah!
    • Oh please, like you're surprised.

And now, I will go back to re-reading In Conquest Born, one of my most favorite books ever.

Tomorrow? Completely depressing work suckage. Nngh. Could be worse.

Alright, it's on! Let's go. Wouldn't it be cool to run side by side? I think that when I get to Chicago, I should fly home and we can do a walk/run together and then post it. ;) Walk Chicago in Chicago.

Also, I figured out that if I keep the pace I'm doing now (15 miles a week), it will take me just over 3 years to finish...I guess this would qualify as a long-term goal. Heh.

I hate running. :) I love walking though!! I'd love to do that; maybe I'll have learned to love (AH HA HA, lets try 'put up with') running by then.

I wonder what the distance is from Seattle to chicago...

Re: but but...

I don't run now either! Doctors say it's dangerous to run over 200 pounds--too much joint pressure. It's bad for joints at any time, actually. But I use the elliptical which is like running with no impact. Yesterday I did 3.9 miles in 35 mins. Really exciting for me!

It's 2000 miles from here to Chicago.

Re: but but...

Wow, fun!

Me and the eliptical trainers don't get along either, though. I've tried it a couple times and it just doesn't do it for me. I don't know why the treadmill's so easy, though.

woo hoo, only 1999 more miles and I'm in seattle!
