I have this thing with NYC. We have a love/hate relationship. NYC tends to treat me well for about a year, and then I'l have one day in which everything that could possibly go wrong does. I think it's the city's way of telling me that i'm powerless. Well, this year NYC decided to stretch that out to a week. As in, a week long of days where nothing goes right.
My belly dancing class was cancelled on Tuesday.
Wednesday, my Aqua Exercise class was cancelled. So i walked down 6th ave thinking I'd get a slice at Ray's. Well, Ray's was closed for renovations, so I just went to the park. I got chilly and decided to go home. When I got to the subway station I had just missed the train (one of those where you see it pulling away. I got home, and the internet was down, I called Time Warner, and their line was busy, when I finally got ahold of them, they said there was an outage and that it should be fixed in about an hour. It was still down when I left thursday morning (GAH! I had to watch morning tv to get the weather!). Add to this that I felt like I had a piece of celphane stuck in the back of my throat all day yesterday. When I finally go to look at the back of my throat in the mirror last night, I find that one side is extremely angry looking and taking over all of my mouth. I have a feeling it's allergy related, so I'll just wait it out.
My commute home yesterday took an hour even with taking the express train because there was a problem on the R line (big surprise). The internet was still down when I got home, so I called Time Warner who told me that the earliest they could send someone was Tuesday from 12-4. I'm sure glad they could narrow that time period down for me. It's always nice to know when people are going to show up to fix stuff. Also, please note that this is almost a full week after the whole problem with the internet started. Oh, and that's the day of the sox/yankees game...so, if they're late I'm going to be extraordinarily pissed, and of course, they will be late. I think it's in a cable tecnician's job description.
Add to all this the fact that I can't check my personal email from work and that i'm attempting to buy an air conditioner (it's hard to research stuff online when you don't have internet access), and you end up with a frazzled me.
