mccoy, goth
Can I have a do-over on Tuesday? Because here are some of the lovely things that today has included:

  • I accidentally blew off a meeting with an engineer because I got so caught up in working on something that I failed to notice the appointment on my calendar. Yeah. Way to look professional.

  • The thing I was caught up in working on is annoyingly broken. At one point today I was reduced to pounding my keyboard and shouting, "I just want something to fucking work!" Way to look professional, part two, except that my officemate is used to me by now.

  • Being sexually harassed on one of the online Fields of the Nephilim fan forums, presumably for committing the cardinal tactical error of being openly female. Or possibly I'm overreacting, and it is entirely appropriate to respond to a question inviting others to speculate about the contents of the special Ceromonies box set by posting a picture of a dildo.

  • Having an hour and 20 minute meeting with my boss during which we tried to work out a reasonable timeline for my finishing all the things I'm supposed to be finishing. Which was really productive, and at the end of any other day would be quite positive and energizing. But at the end of this day, I'm sitting here looking at my nice long list of dates and action items, and thinking, "Sod this, I should have become an auto mechanic."

I don't think you're overreacting. :-(

No, although it was a Darth Vader-shaped dildo, which under other circumstances I would have found pretty damned funny.

Blargh indeed!

You could always post a pic of a vagina dentata to get back at the dildo poster.

(I am not a nice girl.)

And oh my gods... yes. I just want something to work. More than once. Reliably. Without the color of my socks, the phase of the moon, and the number of crunchies the cats ate being involved in whether it works or not.

Hugs! Come climb and relax!

As far as I can tell, you're exactly as nice to people as they deserve. It's one of the things I admire about you.

So far, I've opted to ignore the dildo poster and the guy who said that he hoped the box set would contain the keys to my bedroom, and am chatting happily with nice folks about our favorite live tracks and why some fans like to throw inflatable Nemo toys at the band during gigs.

This week has been too full of other stuff for me to get out climbing. If I can figure out a good day next week, though, I'll ping you to see if our schedules mesh.

Your comment made my day - I used to be a lot nicer in general, but it didn't work well for me. Now, I give what I get, which seems to work better.

I must say, taken out of context, "dildo poster" sounds like unusual artwork.

Wanna climb on Wed?
