# Anyone else having a bad day?

### G01

So over the course of 24 hours (9:00PM last night to 9:00PM tonight) I have done or have to do the following:

1. Left my Judogi (Judo uniform) at the YMCA after my class.

2. The next morning it was gone after I went back and checked after they opened.

4. Spilled my afternoon coffee.

5. Complained to a friend about today who happened to be having a much worse day. Don't think that went well.

6. Have to go to Tuesday's Judo class without a gi and be that moron who forgets his judo uniform during a judo class.

It's time for a holiday...

I've had a hellish week, but today turned out great. I've been arguing with my father about money that he has set aside for me. His car is a piece of crap, and I wanted him to cash in our bonds and buy a decent vehicle so I wouldn't worry about him getting stranded somewhere in a break-down. (He's 83.) By Sunday, I had broken him down only to the point at which he agreed to cash in a CD. I brought him the paperwork on Sunday, he took care of the bank details on Monday, and today, I drove him down to the nearest Subaru dealership to spend the day haggling with a salesman, his sales manager, and the general manager.

We came home with a well-equipped 2009 Forester with automatic transmission (Dad's knees are more arthritic than mine, and clutching can be a problem) for less than $20,000. It's got full-time AWD with traction-control and wheel-specific anti-lock brakes and it has a 5-star crash rating because of the designed-in crumple-zones and the multiple air-bags. Finally!!!!! The transmission allows you to choose higher and lower gears simply by flipping the shift lever while it's in drive. Flip that sucker toward the negative side and floor it, and you get to 60 VERY quickly. We did a quick run-over at my house today on the way home, and he was ear-to-ear happy. 6. Nov 18, 2008 ### Moonbear Staff Emeritus Nah, today wasn't too bad. Had to wake up extra early because we were getting snow overnight and I had to teach an 8 AM class. Got up, looked out the window, didn't think it looked THAT bad, took my time with breakfast and coffee and headed out about an hour and a half early. Only left that early because I was already awake and figured I'd beat the morning rush and just relax and have the second cup of coffee in my office and get a few other things done before class. Then I actually got on the road. After an hour of crawling around S-curves trying to avoid the ditches and weaving around the other stranded cars, along with weaving around the ABSOLUTE MORONS on the road who would see all the cars in ditches and just STOP...in the MIDDLE of the road, halfway down the hill, waiting for someone else to just slide into them I guess...what's the point? They were halfway down already...they couldn't turn around and go back, they weren't safe sitting in the middle of the road, what were they thinking?!!!!! On the plus side, after a while, I was no longer worried about sliding into a ditch, since the ditches were already full . So, an hour later I finally get to work, now with only a half hour to spare before starting my lecture. Gave my lecture, taught lab. Got out of the lab a little early, so thought I had plenty of time for lunch, until everyone waylaid me in the hall to talk about one thing or another before I got away. So, got about a 15 min lunch. Then off to teach my second lecture. Realized about 5 min in that I didn't have time to use the restroom before lecture and probably should have. Got through lecture, taught the other lab. 4 people showed up, one to ask why there were no tags on the cadavers when she came in to study yesterday...:uhh: Because if she had showed up for class last week, she'd know we were done with the cadavers finally. (They wonder why they get C's or worse, yet think they can learn the material on their own after hours instead of coming in during the actual class time.). The course coordinator for the class I'm lecturing to tomorrow came up to me this afternoon to ask me to add several things into my lecture...for tomorrow. She could have told me these were things she thought needed to be covered, oh, maybe a couple months ago when she assigned these lectures to me, or even last week when I put the lectures up on the website for the course. So, I'm tired, and just want to go to sleep early tonight, and have to go digging up more stuff to add to my lecture. It's not much, but it's stuff I don't particularly have readily on hand, which is why I didn't include it in the first place. Met with a few more people over a couple other things. Then headed home. I'm worn OUT, and still working on tomorrow's lecture. :zzz: 7. Nov 18, 2008 ### binzing Well yesterday was the best day for me in prolly a month by now, and today was MOSTLY good, except for a test in Algebra 2 that I didn' finish and prolly failed...But thats nothing new really...God I'm tired of school... 8. Nov 18, 2008 ### Danger Mine was okay. Got up late, logged onto PF & watched TV for a few hours and had some nice ham and potatoes for lunch. Took my empties to the depot and collected$47.55 for them. Bought a new toothbrush. Came home and logged back in, and have been watching TV ever since. W got home from work, ate while watching Frasier, then went to bed. I'll probably be up until 1:00 am to watch the Colbert Report.
I've been unemployed since the first of the month. It was nice to have some time off after several years of 6-day work weeks, but now it's starting to wear thin. I can't even collect pogey, since I was a contractor rather than an employee. There's a big-league tech company in town that I'm going to try to get on with. I'm obviously not qualified for one of their design engineer positions, but I'm pretty sure that I can handle one of the product testing/quality control jobs.

I had a great day for once. I spend the first half of the day running electrophoresis gels and actually had some really interesting diagnosis come up. The last half of the day I had tutorials and an exam on toxicology and therapeutic drug monitoring which I feel like I did quite well on. The only thing that would make things better is if I woke up to a foot of snow so the local ski hills could open, Marmot basin in Jasper has a few runs open but I don't have time nor the money to make the trek out there right now so it would be nice if the local runs could open up

I'm having a bad week. There is a possibility of my cat having a tumor.

Hopefully it turns out to be benign and easily removed. Sorry to hear about your furry friend.

Cats are not and should not be vegetarian. They are carnivores, and it would be VERY unhealthy to put them on a vegetarian diet.

Cats eat meat. They hunt and kill for meat (or just for fun when they are well-fed). They cannot survive on a vegetarian diet - they are not built that way.

Well, yes, they could eat vegetables and fruits, but it does not mean they could survive off of them.

Cats are carnivorous. That does not mean that they enjoy eating meat more than vegetables. It means they need to eat meat to get their needed nutrients. They cannot extract the needed nutrients from a plant only diet.
