My day started out nice and relaxing- the sun was shining, birds were chirping, coffee was brewing... it really looked to be a promising day.
But of course, life is never as it seems... before I can even finish my cup of coffee, the day start to slowly slip out of control like a runaway truck. Pretty much everything that could have gone wrong did, and here are just a few that went spectacularly so:
1. My work laptop crashed midway through a lengthy report (that I moronically have not yet saved). Called IT, waited an hour, couldn't get any help (what was I thinking calling them anyway?). Three hours later, I restarted the project. Laptop crashed again. Banged head till it bled.
2. Received package in mail- only that it was a "Return to Sender" for an Etsy order I just sent out yesterday (and it was only the SECOND order from my little store)! Apparently I used the wrong envelope that indicates it's priority when I was told to pay 1st class postage. Even though for this particular destination, priority and 1-st class will get on the same plane and arrive on the same day. I love USPS.
3. Tried gocco'ing a Thank You card for my cousin whom I'm letterpressing baby announcement for. In my already flustered state, I messed it up big time.
Don't be fooled by this photo where things look OK being small- click on it to get a supersized image, and you'll see the piece on the machine is smudged. I didn't even see it till I printed took this picture and realized about 20 of them were printed like that. ARRGGHHH...
4. Sharks lost. Trailing 0-3 in this 7-game playoff series. Time to shave off my playoff beard.
Seeing this damsel in distress, my very kind hubby not only cooked me dinner, but also presented me this menu below that he specially prepared to help me understand this intricate gourmet meal:
I particularly enjoyed the pungent 99 Ranch garlic, hormone-free chicken, and quality Rainbo large enriched white bread.
I'm awarding the culinary rising-star Chez Senakams a Michelin Star, as well as a Zagat rating of 28 for Food, 30 for Value, and a 25 for decor (the 25 for decor is my fault, as I have messed up prints strewn everywhere).
And this is the pretty Paper Elixir Thank You card I'll send to Chef Jacques for taking such good care of me. Merci, Chef Jacques!
