From Bad to Good

Yesterday was a bad bad day. Coupled with Blogger's clear inability to let me publish my post till 3pm (it was written and ready to go before 8am!) was work. Work yesterday was the worst. I came awfully close to either hurling my computer off my desk or just getting up and walking out. I ended up doing neither but relied heavily on Varen via IM to resolve my issues ... sadly even he couldn't work it out. Picture whatever software you use constantly to get your work done, now imagine that you have to do something specific on it and then every time you do said thing the entire program crashes. Every. Time. I was at my wits end and so frustrated I was almost in tears.

But in the end, the day improved, simple because we decided not to use this specific program and go a different route with he work I was doing. Thank goodness!

In the evening, Varen's folks came over for dinner and he made his yummy Ostrich Steaks :) So, at least the day ended well!

Oh, and I had the weirdest most vivid dream last night (and I very rarely remember my dreams!), I won't bore you with the details, but I was being made to swim (don't really know why, it was just part of some required thing) but I don't really like to a) swim or b) swim in those giant olympic sized pools. So they were trying to find out if someone could sub for me. But in the end I said I'd try beforehand to see if I could manage it (it was something like 80 stokes in a lap ... is that a lot? It sure sounded a lot to me!). All I remember was being scared. I don't like swimming in those giant pools because I can't stand in them without my head being underwater ... and if I get tired, I'll need to stop and stand. It's weird, I know. I can't even remember the last time I swam in one of those pools. More weird is that my Mom & aunt were both in their high school swimming teams and absolutely love to swim. Me, I just like to stand in the water ;) Or snorkel actually, that's about the only real reason I find for swimming (other than cooling down in which case you just need a splash pool with a seat and a cocktail!). Hmmm ....

Arrgh Blogger always seems to do that when you're most stressed out and frazzled (in my case anyway...)

Ostrich steaks? As in the bird?

@missem - I know, i'm sick and tired of it already! And, yip the bird. In South Africa it's a very tasty, low cholesterol meat :)

As per Wikipedia: "Ostrich meat tastes similar to lean beef and is low in fat and cholesterol, as well as high in calcium, protein and iron. Uncooked, it is a dark red or cherry red color, a little darker than beef."
