Today Sucked . . .

I work for a small company, and by small I mean 5 people. It's an association management firm and I am the Graphic Designer and Web Maintenance person. Needless to say, in my profession, I cannot function without my computer.

We'll lets just say, the idiot computer tech guy started fixing problems on one of the other computers in the office this morning which ended up causing huge problems on my computer. And now all, yes all of my files are gone. WOW oh yes, gone. Let me make this more understandable -

Oh my (9:30 AM)
Freak out (10:45 AM),
Freaking out(2:00 PM,
Freaked out (3:00PM),
Calming down now (3:15 PM).

To make matters worse, I am holding interviews today for a freelance web project and it is somewhat difficult to explain a web design project without web access.

I have spent 6 hours doing what I like to call bitch work (i.e. find this, file this, uh we really have nothing for you to do but you cannot go home).

It's 3:25 and I'm going to shoot myself.

After I recover I will post something great, wonderful, and inspiring. But in the meantime - I am going to go hide under my desk until 5.
