Yesterday and today have been an emotional roller-coaster…
For about two years now, I have been using a laptop provided to me by the company I work for, one that currently contains all my life, since I use it at home as well. Among other things, it’s filled with stories I’ve written, messages I’ve saved, naughty manips, and… my work-project, which has taken up my working time for the past three or four months.
When I got home from work yesterday afternoon, that laptop–which had been working perfectly at the office–refused to switch on, presenting me with a message that said a system file was missing or corrupted. I thankfully went against my nature and called the company IT guy, instead of try and fix it myself. He said the poor thing was probably completely dead, but he’d give it a try.
As you can imagine, that only added to the pre-existing bitchiness stress and resulted to me being sulky and crazyitching for a fight rather irritable when I talked with My Love in the evening.
Today I brought the lap top in, and–even though we won’t know before Monday if it can’t be fixed–they salvaged my project and are currently saving all the rest of my Documents and Settings folder. And guess what happened then? My Love called to say he had a second interview with the casino company who’d asked to see him this past Monday. He called again an hour or so later, and said he’d gotten the job.
I’ve gone from feeling depressed and gloomy to being rather perky–which isn’t in my usual repertoire.
