Dumb Luck
On Monday, between dealing with Angela dental-related pain issues, Harold issues, and delivering the next show's batch of Albany Civic Theater tickets to the outlets... lets just say I arrived at work MUCH later than usual (and I usually arrive fairly late).

This wouldn't ordinarily be TOO bad a thing... but I had forgotten about a Very Important Meeting I was supposed to attend that morning, with The Registrar.  Not just with my usual contacts in the Registrar's office, which would be bad enough, but with the Actual Registrar.  (I had the meeting, with an alarm, in my PDA -- I must have simply been out of earshot of it when the alarm went off).

I remembered it RIGHT as I was leaving off the last batch of tickets, and raced to work in utter panic, thinking how it's Never A Good Idea To Make A Bad Impression With An Important Person Right Around The Time Your Annual Performance Review Is Being Processed.

I raced to my desk, planning to call and apologize profusely, when I saw my message light blinking.

[Insert Much Hyperventilation Here...]

Yeah, you guessed it.  The Registrar was sick that day, and his secretary had postponed the meeting until Wednesday (today).

My Personal Lord And Savior, Jesus Christ, was watching out for me that day...  He *MADE* the Registrar sick, just so he'd have to postpone the meeting, so I wouldn't look like an utter jackass for missing it.  Yeah, that's it..  ;)

In any case, you can bet I was here in PLENTY of time to make the meeting TODAY!  :)

[Similarly, I recently thought I'd lost the bluetooth earpiece for my cell phone -- the one thing I cannot live without, for it enables me to communicate "telepathically" (i.e. hands-free) with my wife while I'm driving, shopping, etc.  Went several days without it, suffering horribly, and berating myself the whole time for losing such an expensive item.  Then, right as I was about to buy a new one, I found it -- it was buried in the seat cushion of my car the whole time.  *WHEW*]

...and that's a picture of what my life looks like these days, in a nutshell.  Stress, panic, worry, and dumb luck.  Hope the luck holds out awhile longer...

If I start wearing two simultaneously, then you can start worrying. ;)

Bluetooth

You know, if you tied a string from your phone to your bluetooth headset, you wouldn't loose it. And then, if you tied a string from your phone to, say, the wall in your kitchen, then you'd never loose your phone again! Hey, I think I'm on to something here...phones...cords...hmmmmmmm.
