Cause it wouldn't be a spam-a-licious day at the Chelsea Drugstore....

Without a Desk of Doom rant.


Traveling to Orange County and NYC for a firm meeting. I managed to get her upgraded on all the flights.

I get in this AM and her admin says she's canceled. FINE. But wait...now she's flying out of SFO to JFK, and she's booked herself with United.

This means I no longer have control of the record and all the changes and reissues now have to be done directly with United. She's still not sure she's going to go. If I re-book the hotel she'll be inside cancelation and might lose $575.00 if she cancels again, but if I wait to re-book and she does want it, the room might not be available.

We end up making three more changes, all directly with United and SOMEHOW got her upgraded on all her flights again.

And then she canceled. (Luckily I hadn't booked the hotel.)

I know I'm lucky to have a job in this economy, especially when my back-up plan of going to work at Starbucks seems to be evaporating in a puff a steamed milk, but still...This is all I've worked on ALL FUCKING DAY!


At least I got to the gym this morning.

Happy House Day, by the way. New, angsty House/Wilson in case you missed it.

Dear Michael Phelps


You are a fucking idiot!

Hey, you wanna get high? Fine by me. Have a little doobie. No worries. But doing the world's biggest bong? That's like begging to get caught.


Yours in disbelief,


Seriously. I saw it on the news this morning. I was at the gym and kind of out of it anyway, so at first I thought it must be some kind of joke. Like doing a PSA about NOT doing drugs.

I guess not.

Song Lyric Prompt-a-Day 2009 Day #33

Prompts can be used for any fandom/pairing or even original fic, if you like. (Yes, any.) All I ask is that you credit me with providing the prompt and comment with a link to the story.

Prompt #33

I've had many times
I can tell you
Times when innocence I'd trade for company
And children saw me crying
I thought I'd had my share of that
But these miss you nights
Are the longest.

Miss You Nights-Cliff Richard
