On this lovely, sunny, temperate Massachusetts Friday, I’m sure that most people had asked for the day off. Or left work early. Or, at the very least, took it easy on themselves. It’s July 2 for Chrissake, I mean, everybody and their brother is staring down the barrel of a three day weekend. Bring on the party, right?
You know, or not.
I woke up with a most inauspicious to-do list:
1) bikini wax
2) car shopping
3) massive server migration at BLPI
The third part of my plan went horribly – I’d forgotten that each dropbox user only has 2g of storage space, so at the 11th hour I had to re-think the whole operation. Big ups to Katsumi, who helped me through with phone support. Eventually I got everything working fine (I think), and with any luck I’ll be able to work remotely during my upcoming Arizona vacation.
The first part of my plan went as comfortably as one might expect when a smooth-skinned European woman spends an hout working her way around your nether-regions with a tongue depressor and muslin strips. (Read: hey, at least I remembered to take Advil first)
And the second part of my plan, well….
IT WENT FUCKING FANTASTIC!!! I TOTALLY BOUGHT A CAR!!! ALL BY MYSELF, WITHOUT ANYBODY TO HELP ME!!!
