I’m having a weird day. I know. Shocking.

First of all, I can’t login to the server that I have to upload things to for my biggest client. These things were supposed to be uploaded a couple days ago so that I could finish their mid-month newsletters. Now, it’s not my fault that I can’t login (it’s not like I’m a doofus and forgot my password), but the guy who fixes such things is on vacation and I can’t do my work until somebody fixes it.

Secondly, my car is dead. Not permanently, of course. I mean, it’s a Honda and it only has 125K miles, which is still in the newish range. But it won’t start (I had to get towed home from the gym yesterday) and everybody seems to think it’s the starter, since the battery is good.

And finally, I found yet another stray dog. This one walked right up to me as I was getting into the car (not the dead car; another car), waited while I called the number on the collar (no answer), then leapt into the car when I opened the door.

These things can really throw a monkey wrench in your day. But the being-in-the-moment skills I have learned from years of improv
