Well, it's only 1 and I feel as though I've already had an adventure for the day. Follow the journey of the immigrant hobbit and gnome tamer:
7:15am: While getting out of bed, trying very carefully not to wake the slumbering vampire, I accidentally head butt (head butted?) him. Don't ask me how these things happen, they just do.
8:20am: While trying to get dressed, I remembered that Sweep (aka: that bastard dog) peed across my legs last night, thus rendering my only pair of clean trousers a mess. So, I ended up wearing a pair of Jay's very old jeans. Result: 80's style jean parachute look.
8:45am: I arrived at Risca Surgery half an hour early because Sue was the only person who could give me a lift and I sure as hell wasn't walking that far in the morning.
9:00am: I took my novel along to work on while I was waiting since I had one test at 9:15 and another at 10:20. Unfortunatly, I haven't looked at it in about a week so I had to go back and reread what I have done so far to catch up. Bad idea. I ended up starting to *gasp* revise, which I promised myself I wouldn't do. The very first page looks like Mrs. Juel got ahold of it, it's been marked so much.
9:10am: I have my blood test done surprisingly early. Doctor's on time? Shock!
9:30am: Early again! I went into the asthma clinic for more tests. The doctor gave me a phallic looking machine to blow into twice a day for a month to test my asthma. Her thoughts are 1. my asthma is getting worse and they need to put me on a preventative inhaler or 2. I have something called Post Nasal Drip Syndrom which just sounds beyond disgusting. I think probably the latter.
10:00 am: The 151 bus showed up and actually stoped FOR A CHANGE. The bus driver was creepy though and gave me a dirty look when I got on. Grossness.
10:15 am: I almost missed my stop because I wasn't paying attention. The bus driver stopped about a yard after the bus stop and gave me a dirty look when I got off.
10:20am: During the MILE LONG walk from the bus stop to my job, I came across the local library. Well...I could just PASS it, could I? I wasn't suppose to be in until noon anyway. I wandered in and showed my card to the nice librarian. She explained that my card is only good for Caerphilly county, not Newport county. So, she finds some papers and offers to get me a library card.
10:25am: I am now a member at all Newport county libraries. *drool*
10:40am: I leave the library happily with 1. "historical fiction" novel and 2. Donna Kooler's 555 Fabulous Cross-Stich Patterns. I'm happy.
11:00am: I got to the sauna that is my office and found that half of the workforce is still off sick. More work for me.
11:15am: I got crap from a co-worker for making call outs because he was suppose to be making call outs. I can't wait for everyone else to come back.
11:45am: A bunch of suites came into the office. Terrible timing. I had a tuna fish sandwich sitting, half-eaten on my desk. Busted, big time. I'm really bad with that whole, "no food in the office" rule.
12:00noon: I went on lunch even though I'd only been in work for an hour. I don't care, I wanted to work on my novel. You should always choose creativity over monotony.
1:00pm: I wish I was still on lunch. Better yet, I wish I was still in bed with Jay... Don't know if he's mad at me for head butting him though...
