I am currently away on a business trip and wishing I were home. Being the pessimist that I am removes most likeliness that I will enjoy myself on this adventure. It just so happens that some friends of mine were here from out of town and so we met up last night for dinner and fun. Only...I wasn’t much fun. Planned to stay up late and play but actually came back to my room at 8:00pm. I guess I have lost all ability to party as my age creeps up the scale of life. Not to mention it was an incredibly stressful day for an already stressed out girl and by the time the sun set, my whole body was looking for sleep.
That being said, it is now 5:52 am. And here I sit..working. The thing about work when your not at work, is that even though your working, it doesn’t feel like your working. So I am working in my hotel room and gotta say....its just not bad. I seem happier to answer emails and get things done. I think I am on to something here. If establishments want their employees to really buckle down...they should send them on vacation with a deadline. It would work. Believe me. Doesn’t sound like it, but it would.

Me: I just don’t know what is wrong with it, I have had troubles burning disks and withdrawing information from disks on this drive.
IT: Do you think the disk drive has gone bad?
Me: It’s a new computer.
IT: (Puts hands over entire face and rubs it as he sighs in frustration, like how a very angry and annoyed parent sighs. As if he is holding it inside and wants to explode angry rantings of inferiority on me but instead says in a very pissed slow and condescending voice:) That’s not what I asked you is it? I asked you “Do you think the disk drive is bad”.
Me: And I told you, No the computer is bran new, intending to imply the DRIVE is new too.
IT: (Rubs face again and sighs again) But do you think the drive is bad?
Me: I guess it is possible, I have not used it but a handful of times since I got the computer, but never mind, I would rather die in a firey car crash than accept your help now so please leave.
IT: (Walks to the back of my computer and starts pushing on things).
Me: No…really. My pride will not allow me to accept your help now. I am sorry, but I am literally incapable of accepting any help, favors or even exchange in conversation from you at this point.
Moral of the story: still cant pull informtion off the drive. bummer.

So I officially had the funnest Halloween Ever this year. You know how I have been addicted to watching ‘Ghost Hunters’ all season right? Well, on Halloween they did a Live 7 hour show where they investigated Fort Delaware. They already did an investigation of this Civil War confederate prison camp earlier this year and got some pretty spooky evidence. Watch This:
So they decided to investigate it again for their big Halloween special. SOOO SUPER SPECTACULAR. Never had so much fun spending time by myself on a Holiday. The two spooookiest parts are below. The first one is where they hear a voice telling them they need to leave (listen for it, you can’t miss it)
The second one is where Grant is walking down the corridor and something grabs his coat like three times!
Now I know many of you will believe these are staged, and maybe they are, but I don’t think so. If they were staged it would completely ruin their creditability. Even if it was faked, it sure supplied me with an entire evening of excitement.
Now if you are as interested as I am, in all the results, they will be revealed Wednesday night on the SCIFI channel!
