I’m already annoyed by BlogLovin’ and I haven’t even used it yet. Why on EARTH should I have to “claim” my blog?
Is there are hormone that makes you unreasonably angry? I think I have too much of that right now.
Yesterday I was trying to copy a pattern out of a new quilting/sewing book that I recently bought – Patchwork Please (just a link, not a way to get a half a cent if someone buys it, or however that works…) – and no matter how much I mashed that book flat onto my scanner, I just could NOT get it to scan the entire pattern without it being on an angle or cutting off a bit or casting a shadow over half the pattern. So I ripped it out of the book. No lie.
Too much anger.
I guess it’s a good thing there wasn’t anything important on the other side of the page (it was a facing page to another section, so just a picture, not even a picture of another project), but now I’m going to have that one loose page for ever and ever until I inevitably lose it a few months before wanting to make the pattern again. Anyway, I promptly changed my mind and didn’t actually make the project in question anyway. But if I ever want to… at least I’ll be able to scan it without problems. (Blowing it up 143%? That’ll be a whole other problem. I really despise books that tell me to blow things up to ridiculous sizes because my stupid printer doesn’t have options that allow me to specify 143% – I can barely make it scan and print something at the size it started from, never mind changing the size entirely.)
I spent most of my morning in a haze of anger because my boss called in sick today (not angry about that) and I had to do all his work and all my work and all the work that was left from the weekend, but oh by the way, can you do this? and can you do that “just for a few minutes”? and the cleaner is going to get and stay in your way, by the way, even though he’s not actually cleaning anything, and he’s going to have a very, very loud conversation on the phone while he’s not cleaning and… just ugh. So not impressed with the day.
But really, I should stop thinking about it or I’m going to start getting angry about the fact that it’s snowing again, and it’s cold and windy as all get out and I’m cold and my hair is windblown… everything just magnifies, when you’re already in a mood, doesn’t it?
