That would be ME!
What a day from hell! I spent all day yesterday (when I should have been packing) over at a dear friend's house who was trying to help me get my computer to work with Ustream. After 6 hours and a lot of past and present problems with my computer, it was decided with finality that my computer is SHOT. This is not good news when it's 7:45pm on Sunday and I have to be on a plane at 6am with a WORKING computer ready to go live with a Ustream class. So, with 15 minutes to closing time I raced to Best Buy to buy a new laptop. (grumble grumble). Got home and spent the next 4 hours transfering files and loading necessary programs. At midnight (ish) I FINALLY was able to get into my studio and get the USTREAM kits packed and shipped, as well as getting the Chicago class kits packed up and ready to go to UPS to ship to the hotel. The hands on the clock were speeding out of control as I was crazily throwing supplies into boxes and bags and Lord only knows where else! At 4am I finally called it quits in the studio and RAN LIKE A FLASH to my room to throw piles of clothes into a suitcase, grab a quick shower and get the hell out of dodge. No biggie, I can sleep on the plane right?
Got their 44 minutes before my flight was to take off. Apparently American Airlines (assholes) have a 45 minute cut off. Even if you are ONE minute past their cut off, you don't get to get on your plane. *smile* So I was bumped and now will be leaving tomorrow moing to go join my girls in Chicago!
Lucky Kim though – she's going to print out my badge and go take my Timmy class this moing!
I'm going to bed now my lovelies! Please keep good thoughts in your head about my maybe getting there TOMORROW! LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!July 18, 2011 at 1:06 pm #127234July 18, 2011 at 1:09 pm #127236July 18, 2011 at 1:14 pm #127237

"Some cars look like they're going fast when they're standing still. The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."July 18, 2011 at 3:52 pm #127245
Good Grief! You've been running your hind end off and have to deal with THAT? I'd feel like biting someone's head off! Hope the rest of the week goes MUCH better! Has to, right? 🙂July 18, 2011 at 3:55 pm #127246
That's terrible! THe airlines nowadays are unreal….. my mom got bumped from a cross-country flight last month because she wasn't standing there waiting to dash onboard when they called her row. They gave her flight to a stand-by even though the reason she wasn't there right on the second is due to the check-out counter person. She had to pay for a hotel room herself, as the airline said it wasn't their problem. Grrr.
And those computer problems…. enough to make a person pull their hair out!
Have fun when you get to CHA and snag us some yummy new goodies.
