What....a.....day.....

Oh, what a day..... I burned a bridge...I bought a phone....I said goodbye....I made a new connection....I reached a new level...

Two men I once loved both told me today that they were in love. (Not with each other. Not with me either, btw.) One of them is a friend, and one of them is not. The one who is not might have been, but I burned that bridge. It will never be now. I wish them both the best of luck. I really do.

My phone died on me today. I was in the middle of trying to send a text message to my dear Z who's leaving on a trip today, and the screen went blank. When I tried the phone again, the colors went odd. Halfway through writing another text, the screen went dark again. Turning it on and off didn't work. Taking out the battery. Charging it and redoing all of the above. So I went out and bought a new phone. Fortunately, I found one I think I'll like from the same service, so I was able to swap my number immediately and get right back in touch with the world. I even managed to somehow get my old phone to come back long enough for me to transfer my contact list. Finally. In the end, I came out with one more contact number than I had before. I sent a text to try it out, but I got no response. Hmm....

I was able to catch Z on MSN during his whirlwind of packing activity. We didn't have much chance to talk, but at least we got to say goodbye before he left.

It was a work day in the office today, and I'm quickly discovering that I can hear all sorts of interesting things from my little cubby. In addition to learning about my coworkers bizarre political and social beliefs, I've learned one coworker is tracking his wife who's seeking out an affair. (He's set up a fake MySpace account, and apparently, she's all over the "guy.") All kinds of little secrets are floating around in that place.

Everything is quiet in the house now...It's a sweet sound.... Wait. I hear Rob Thomas singing my new ringtone to me. Hmm.... Transatlantic call...... :)

Wow, nothing boring in your life! I am in the middle of a cell phone saga, I keep getting ones that don't work right. Maybe I'm the same with cell phones as I am with watches, they just don't work on me!
Your office gossip could make for a great story...sad...but interesting.
Goodbyes are never easy...hope your heart feels better. :)

And all I did was take out the trash.

My life is dull and does not compare. : (
