AKA Day Nothing Has Gone My Way
To day today has sucked would be putting it lightly. I knew it was going to be a bummer because I’ve been dreading this move for two weeks, but it really has taken the cake.
First, I didn’t factor in traffic and only made it to the airport half an hour before my flight. OOP. So, my bags had to go on the flight behind me, which is fine, I can suffer that evil because I’m an idiot.
No time for big goodbyes, must get my ass through security, all my liquids are within the 3 ounces, but apparently I have TOO MANY. They’re worried the 22 year-old crying girl with the metric fuck-ton of makeup is going to explode the plane with her 378,000 1 ounce makeup things. I get it. So all of those bags came out and went back to mom behind the security line. (Still crying.)
At this point I’m running with all my stuff in my arms to the gate and the gate agent is telling me I need to run because they’re closing the doors, I made it just in time, last one on the plane, the door literally closed behind me. I collapse into my seat and the heaping sobs began (I’m so sorry to the guy sitting next me, I know it was terrifying).
The flight was uneventful, I splurged on wifi. I didn’t have time to go buy head-phones so I thought I deserved it.
Here’s where it get’s fun- In my waiting for my bags, I got a phone call from the manager of my apartment, where I was supposed to be today, apparently maintenance didn’t get the memo that I was flying all the way from Texas so, my apartment is not ready.
It’s okay though, because they’re going to pay me back for my hotel cost.
Double whammy- there’s a convention this week and there was nothing available online anywhere.
Triple whammy- sudden cancellation, I’m at a Hilton Suites Thing. Complimentary breakfast AND dinner. Comfy bed. Toiletries to steal. And my taxi driver to get here was really nice. And I’m on Pike Street, not that I’m going to utilize that. Because tired.
Here’s the living area where I’ve stored all my crap all over the floor.
This is the kitchenette with the things I’ll be stealing all across the counter.
And this is the bed I’ve already made use of. I will be going to bed as soon as the complimentary dinner is over with (free beer and wine at that by the way- what whammy are we on?). And yeah, food network.
If I didn’t have the call of dinner in my future I would already be going to sleep because this day has SUCKED. Orientation is tomorrow and I have to be up early to walk halfway across Seattle. Let’s hope day two is better.
P.s. It’s sunny out Mom, no rain.
P.p.s. Alexa Davalos is also at this hotel, that’s how fancy shmancy it is. She seems nice, if not wayyyy more well to do than me. And so effortlessly pretty I wanted to kick myself.
UPDATE: Complimentary dinner was only salad (a pretty good salad though) which was lame, but I did charge an ice cream to the room which means more things comp-ed! Woo! And I brought my free wine up to drink in bed. #boozey
