Stupid Erika Day

From now on, that is what this day shall be proclaimed.



First up, lets finish the forgotten password debacle.Got home, thought about it, even did a wee bit of pondering. Thought I figured out what my password was so I decided to brave the heat and go back down to the ATM. And guess what? Oh yes, good people of the 'net, I got it wrong again. At least the machine didn't eat my card, but I still have to wait for a new card (but hey! I have my new password already!)

And whadda know - four hours later I finally remember the damn number. I think. Not that it matters anymore.

Second stupid moment. Remember how I was saying a week or so ago I had a teeny tiny school-girl like crush on a guy at work. Well, if thats what it was I don't need to hold any hope of it getting 'real'. Jacka and I were talking to the guy the other day at work, asking him what he did on his days off. It turned out that he went to the city to see his grandfather, as the man is quite ill.

To which I reply. "That's not too good."

And he said, "No it's not."

So what do I say? What could I possibly say right now that would show this guy that I am a person worth knowing? What deeply feeling thing could I put into words? I say (I hope you're sitting down for this)

"Well, that's the problem with the elderly."

How - thoughtful of me. Queen of the Idiots. All I meant by that statement, that I probably should have finished out loud and not in my head, was that my grandmother had recently hurt her shoulder.

And, to make the matter worse, his grandfather died later that day.


Gawd I can be lose a Minda sometimes. On a very bright note the tickets to the Blink182 concert arrived today. Yay!! If it wasn't too hot I would do a happy dance. But it is, so I won't.
