What an absolutley shitty day Tuesday turned out to be.
Here’s the rundown.
Go to work, it’s all good. Go to softball game, take 5-3 lead into 6th. Lightning. And more. Ump won’t pull us off the field. The other team scored a ton. Still batting when the ump finally calls it. So now there’s a big hub-bub of what’s going on, who wins, what happens, etc.
That’s not even close to the worst part of the day.
As I’m heading back to work from the game, and it’s pourning now mind you, I notice the area where the office is located is pretty dark. All I can think is ‘great, another power outage.’
Those of you who work/worked in newspapers will understand the next part of this.
I get to the office, power out. Who knows when it will be back on. This is like 9:15. Our deadline is 11:35.
Power back on? A little after 1 a.m. Last page sent at around 3 a.m. Yeah, screw that lightning. And give me some overtime.
I hate it when crap like that happens. Needless to say, I wasn’t the happiest camper in the world. Especially getting home at 3:30 a.m. Ugh.
And of course, Tuesday all started with almost losing HooHaa.com. Something I have owned since like 1998 and plan on owning for a long, long time!
Aug. 3 can’t come quick enough for me.
