Distressing, but probably the best thing you could have done, Tiki,

Tomorrow (OK, today, it's after midnight) my office is closed for Good Friday.

I'm going in anyway... it was the best time to have our PBX vendor run some updates on our phone system. Only a couple or three hours, but somebody has to babysit the place while non-employees are there, and it's possible they'll need technical info from me.

[Bonus mildly annoying, or perhaps WTF. I announced the outage to all employees via email earlier this week. I got several replies to the tune of "I don't think it'll be a problem, because we're closed on Friday." Umm... thanks for the support... you do realize I scheduled it for an off day on purpose, right?]

I can't process this statement. You forgot to raise your sarcasm flag. Theirs is not to understand why, theirs is to do and cry.

I dropped my sugar bowl. It shattered on the kitchen floor and sugar went EVERYWHERE.

I seem to drop things a lot lately.

I'm bored, a bit hungry, and a bit hungover. More just tired hungover than sick hungover.

Or, not do and cry.

The guy who runs the cafe near my office said something cool today. (He's always giving me discounts on coffee, the scamp.) I had said that the place was my little utopia in the middle of hell. We were laughing, he is always joking with people. He said "I have fun no matter what I'm doing." I replied that I find that refreshing and he said "You know, I was in the hospital when I was 19 and lost my leg. I realized then that life is what you make it. You can sit around and boo-hoo or get on with it."

What a great and inspiring attitude he has: something I need to remember in my boo-hoo moments.

Thanks.

I have all these fears about not being able to fall in love with anyone else, ever, or of never finding anyone who works as well with me as he does. Did. Could have. Whatever.

I know they're irrational, but they still bother me.

I understand. Trust me.

I know it's hard right now, but it will get better. You may never completely lose the love you have for this person, and that is not necessarily a bad thing, but you will be able to love again when the right person comes along.
