Oh, and my cold has descended into my chest. Now I have a cough. Golly gee, what fun. Just what we needed.
Things that didn't get mentioned: so far, I'm up a creek when it comes to chairs for the church. As it's a rather traditionally outfitted Orthodox parish, it has no pews or chairs. Well, there are a couple pews for the elderly and infirm along the edges. I should've arranged sooner. The places I've called either don't deliver to the area for orders that small or are too swamped to take on additional business. How cool do you think people are with coming to a wedding and not sitting for 45 minutes? I'll try a couple more places today. And when are we going to have time to set these things up?
I have no idea when somebody will be home to let the phone guy in. The bastards arrange all day appointments, 8am-8pm. C'mon, any more granularity and we'd be able to maybe rig something, but I just can't guarantee somebody will be there for all 12 hours. Nobody was there yesterday, of course, so the appointment fell through. The DSL also didn't start working, but I am not sure whether that is predicated on the technician coming and turning on the phone service or not. If it isn't, they're bastards. If it is, I'm going to make extra sure to get this set up sometime, somehow, or something.
Work wants something by Friday. Uh... what the hell. What they want is going to be nonsense. This is all just nonsense.
We were supposed to start up the gas service today. R was there for it. I was at lunch and noticed a voicemail, it was left like ten minutes prior, saying the gas guy was there and nobody was answering, so I called R and she was there and I told her to call the number because I was at lunch and couldn't look things up and we have to reschedule with the fscking gas guy. When am I going to have time to go do these things? And the moment I go for the laundry or something will be the time they come. And for some reason my phone always sends these guys to voicemail. Every time. I'm going to step out for a moment and see if I can get gas and AT&T on the same day next week, because I might be able to take some time off or something and then put it to good use - but I'm taking time off otherwise. I need a few grams of Damitol.
It is clear that the world is conspiring against us. Or maybe just technician. That's right. technician, I am blaming you. For all of it. The chairs. The gas. The phone. The time. Especially the time. Damn you, technician.
