So, follow me on my emotional roller coaster this morning:

  1. Wake up just after midnight in coughing fit, find girlfriend has already left for spare room -> grumpy

  2. Alarm goes off at 5:00 am -> very grumpy

  3. Favourite breakfast of eggs over easy on real toast -> slightly grumpy

  4. At work drinking my favourite coffee -> satisfied

  5. Meeting with Loctite rep, reviews parts assembly, shows that primer should be used with loctite we're using, solves mystery of parts coming apart -> relief

  6. Realization that I could have solved problem a year ago by just talking to the guy -> suicidal tendencies

  7. Read literature find out I was right and rep was wrong -> ecstasy!

  8. Still have problem with parts, talk to assembler, find out he's been using the wrong loctite altogether -> rage!

  9. Contemplating shit storm to come with product recalls and field campaigns -> complete and utter depression

That was all before 10:00 am.  I'm hoping for an upswing at noon with a tuna fish sandwich from the deli.  If they don't have tuna, I may just spend the afternoon sucking on an argo tailpipe.


No tuna fish sandwich.  Fuck.  It's only been a 3 day work week and I've absolutely had it.  Yah, a long weekend sounds pretty good right now.


  1. Was this all with pants?

  2. Eesh... I'll take poopy diapers over this any day.

  3. Fully pantsed. Maybe next time will go easier if I go without the pants.

  4. I literally stared at my computer screen for one hour after all this shit. Literally from 10:00 to 11:00. Just stared. Literally.
