I call a do-over. - Devil on Your Shoulder
Go on. You know you want to.
I call a do-over.
Things that happened today:
  • My hair wouldn't do anything close to good.
  • I spilled dill pickle juice all over my shirt while making my lunch
  • I had about one million phone calls from people who can't read directions.
  • I had about one million emails from people who can't read directions.
  • I send an an email with an attachment to about 300 people.
  • The internet slows to a crawl all afternoon.
  • I am informed that my email somehow messed up the system.
  • I have sent these emails before with no detrimental effects.
  • My vice president doesn't seem to believe that I've sent this email before.
  • The documents needed for a huge mailing that needs to go out, like, yesterday don't show up until 4pm.
  • I'm now worried that there will be repercussions from the email, because I'm a paranoid freak.
The only remedy is to read copious amounts of the Dan Simmons horror novel Summer of Night.  Reading about 12 year old kids fighting some kind of soul-sucking vampire things in a bucolic mid-western town in 1960 makes my troubles seem not so bad.  I'm not certain about the soul-sucking vampire part.  I'm only a third into the book.  And since Dan Simmons is my new imaginary author boyfriend, I fully trust that however this turns out it will rock.

Better. I got more work done.

There was an all-company email sent concerning large attachments to files and not to do that. Because the answer to the problem is to stick with substandard technology and mail hardcopies of documents. I swear, around here it's still 1979.

I've got one of those diving suits, with the big hard helmet and air hoses. Cleo will love it!!
