It must be time to go on a vacation. I woke up early this morning to make sure I could get everything done in time and instead everything seemed to go wrong. First, I went to go put my cool mouthpiece that molds to my bite on to my regulator. And since I had my dive knife right there, I decided to use it to remove the old mouthpiece. Bad decision. As I cut through the zip tie, I sliced my left thumb. Badly. I hate blood, and at the ass crack of dawn (4:30am) I got extremely woozy. What a great way to start off this trip. I’ll have to watch it closely because any cut in seawater is prone to staph infection. Yuck!
Once I got the gusher under control, I went to put the new mouthpiece on and it didn’t fit. At all… no matter how hard to tried to force it with my good hand. I knew that there were different sizes for this mouthpiece but I swore I got the right one. Apparently not. Ugh. That means a trip to the dive shop today. And to Underwater Safaris, my least favorite shop (but the closest).
Then, the one day I planned on working from home, I couldn’t get internet on any of my three laptops… wirelessly or through ethernet. What!?!?!? Oh well, at least I could go down to my lobby and get it. But nope, internet was down for the whole building. OK, in the meantime I thought I could read up on my Walgreens emails… but nope. My Blackberry was no longer receiving incoming emails. What is going on?
I sucked it up and decided I’d need to go down the street to Starbucks, but when I did, I couldn’t get my Walgreens laptop to connect. My VPN had expired. Oh no. This meant I had to run down to the office. I caught a bus downtown and spent a couple hours getting everything finalized and my out of office turned on.
This day could only get better. As long as I make my flight…
