to give you an inkling on what my mood has been like for most of the week, i give you the titles of the four dvd's i bought at the grocery store on my way home tonight:

the right stuff
saving private ryan
hamburger hill

seriously. the past three days sucked so bad, i've been on the brink of quitting every day. and i really, really mean that. i think i was the most bitter on tuesday, where i - ten minutes before i was to go home for the day - discovered a gross error i made in calculating the projected earnings for my project this month, and the error wasn't exactly in the positive direction. that was a lovely e-mail i had to send to my boss...

to top that day off, i then left the office feeling horrible, walked to the subway station, got on a train and... realized i didn't have my cellphone. with exactly 15 minutes to go before my team were to pack up and leave for the day, i had to get off at the next station, catch a train in the opposite direction, and speed-walk back to the office where six people were all "you left your phone!" ...they were going to keep it safe for me, but i need it because it also works as my morning alarm clock so.. MEH.

tuesday sucked. and monday, monday sucked too. and yesterday, yesterday sucked as well. but today, today was okay. because i was so fed up with feeling homicidal and enormously frustrated and incompetent at everything in the world, see, so i just made a conscious decision to BE. FUCKING. HAPPY today. and i was!

it feels like ages since i was last a total chatterbox at work, entertaining the team and ignoring all the things i am ridiculously behind in doing.so. HA.

still. i'm obviously still not over the frustration, as my sudden need to add more war-movies (and one silly, and ok, the right stuff isn't really a war-movie) to my stupid dvd-collection proves.

oh well.

tomorrow is mo-fo friday, and then i have aaaaaall the way until monday before i next have to have a sucky week at work! (and yes, monday will suck enormously for reasons i'll explain then. buh.)

hehe. ok, gonna watch the last eppie of heroes now! :)

hehe, i was, indeed. haven't seen hamburger hill since, uh, the 80s? but remember it being pretty good, and sad, and violent. gotta watch it again. :)
