Most All-Nighter’s I’ve pulled in the past were more meaningful than tonight’s little escapade inthe YQR — a somewhat pleasant airport — and free internet — and pretty quiet so its not too bad. On the poo-side, I should be in a rental car driving to my destination to visit my client whom I have a meeting with at 6am. The drive would have been 2 hours leaving me 4 hours to either sleep in the car or dilly-dally around at a hotel somewhere……seeing as how I never got that far because of a wrench in the gears, I am officially on standby.
My original plan was to rent a car, but my credit card is still in transit and alas money that is not in the form of a credit card is no good. After texting almost my whole address book, there were no philanthropists that wanted to throw their card up on good will and as a result, I had to email corporate to see if they can get things setup.
Problems: Nooone at corporate is working right now.
Oilers took the win to end their 5 game losing streak and I ran into an old high-school flame? on the plane who is now working as an attendant and did a very thorough job at speaking in both English and French which was much nicer the an the recording. Woo Tam!
Today I also went on a date with a girl who actually knew one of my real ex’s and gave me some cred with the gal who had recently had her wisdom tooth out and it was pretty rough since we went to a buffet and i was gorging on all this great indian food and she was soo hungry and it was starting to get pretty ugly until the server told her about this rice pudding. Amen. Otherwise things probably would have went south pretty quick, but we managed to make it through lunch and tea and actually had a pretty good lunch before touring!
After that, I got all packed for my trip and prepared my notes and played some house soccer with the little chinese kid that lives in the same house as me. Even for my age I am still pretty agile and think beckam should probly step down and recognize that there are some damn good players that dont play in the biggs cause they are too busy getting caught in red tape at airports! :0
Other than that, I will have to see how this all plays out — will i visit my client? will i get fired? will I have to try to find a way home? Will corporate front the deposit? Will I get sent home and not visit my client until I get my credit card? Will my banker finally return my call and let me know where my bloody card is?
