m o n d a y :
my laptop crashes.
everything--my pictures, my music, my photo editing programs, my word documents--everything is sucked into a virtual black hole of oblivion.
frantic chaos ensues.
t u e s d a y :
computer goes into the shop.
they'll call within 3-5 business days.
w e d n e s d a y :
i get assigned a 5 day international trip.
not only can i not be available when the computer guys may call to authorize repairs (PLEASE God, let it be repairable), but that also means that by the time i get back, i will have only 1.5 days before i leave for England to shoot Nicole's wedding....with no hope of a computer to put the pictures on, edit them, make a cd of final copies for the bride.....
i also have to hastily book my transportation to Derby (mooching off my roomie's laptop for 2 hours) once i arrive at Heathrow (do i take the bus? the train? which is cheaper? what if we're delayed? are the tickets refundable? what do you mean my credit card is declined?)
sooooooooooo much fun, i cannot even begin to tell you.
but God and i had this conversation:
"WHY does it have to be FIVE DAYS, Lord?!
and why why WHY must it be OUT OF THE COUNTRY?!?
im a ship with no sails here...a boat without a paddle, flailing about with no.."
"Do you trust Me?"
"Ok then. Trust me."
that aside, i think i may have also completely botched up a perfectly good friendship
