Mama said there'd be days like this, verse 89264

I have department heads that want to kill each other, people who have promised me stuff and then vanished off the face of the earth (I know they still exist, I see them on LJ) and as if that weren't enough tsuris I have an apartment super who thinks that since Martha Stewart is doing time that they're auditioning for a replacement, so she's starting her bid by making my life hell thanks to a bag of garbage that wasn't dumped in the chute in time. On top of that, I lost my copy of the assessment syllabus, so whatever homework was due tonight ain't gonna get done in time.

I did get a decent night's sleep after yesterday's exceedingly draining meeting, but got up at 0500 before the alarm went off and spent the next 2 1/2 hours straightening my room and throwing things either in the garbage or my closet. Then I drove in to work, packing laptop along with regular work bag and consuming McBreakfast en route. Am now dog-tired and utterly unmotivated.

Maybe some coffee would help that.

Battle of the Burritos

Well, the coffee helped, and so did lunch, though the steak burrito at Panchero's isn't going to do much for my blood sugar, which decliend slightly from 261 this morning to 189 before lunch at 1300...speaking of which, Panchero's is a viable alternative to Chipotle. Much the same ingredients, except that the tortillas are freshly fried up from dough, not reheated from packages. There's also a slightly different (and larger) selection of Coke products there. So, when I go over to Borders in search of fresh manga, as I did today, and don't feel like going outside to Jimmy John's (as I did not today), I can eat something that won't bust my budget.

In other news, Melody is frothing mad now that the super has come and left. Quote of the day: "She said your bedroom smells like somebody slept there." WTF does that mean? I think I'm going to have to reconsider staying through the end of this 18-month lease and just get the hell out as soon as possible, because this is just asinine.

Thanks, I needed that!
