Got out of bed late and arrived at worker later than I wanted too. (-)
Magnum, P.I. arrived late for our meeting. (-)
Magnum, P.I. decides my new data is super exciting, and as a result we are aiming new paper at a higher journal (+,+).
Spend chunks of the day arguing with a salesman from the Toyota dealership. (-).
Go over salesman’s head to manager, get what I wanted in the first place and get salesman in trouble (+,+).
Gloat about small victory over ever used car salesman, resulting in 30 minutes of wasted time recreating phone calls for interested co-workers. (-, considering I started the day late and gloating isn't exactly attractive)
Remove one item from to do list (-) and leave work only 45 minutes later than expected (+).
Go to store in an effort to determine what size maternity pants I need so that I can purchase them off eBay and save money. (+)
Get lecture from maternity store sales woman that no matter how hard I try or what I do, my body will never go back to the way it was and I will never fit into my old clothes again, so I might as well accept it. (-,-; one negative because this is not what I wanted to hear and one because I didn’t say anything rude back to her as I was completely shocked that anyone would say this to anyone.)
Determined that my legs are too small and thin for maternity pants at aforementioned store. I can either wear pants that are two inches too short or I can spend the next six months hiking the bastards up every five minutes. (-, Now, I must visit more stores.)
Walked three miles, but who knows why since it’s apparently a lost cause. :) (+)
Worked on manuscript from graduate school lab for two hours. (+)
Managed to make all this junk into a blog post (+)
Net for the day is positive. Not too bad for a Monday.
