Yesterday was a rough day. I cried at work, which makes me feel like a major douche (though really, it was only the second time I've cried at work and if you compare that to the number of times I've felt like crying at work, it's pretty impressive.) I just felt like shite yesterday and work was really overwhelming and my boss was being a persnickety bastard and then my head melted. Mondays consistently kick my ass.
I managed to get through the day and jump on the train (I got to sit beside a crying baby for half an hour, lucky me) and walk home (through the rain. Of course it was raining! Of course I forgot my umbrella! I love Monday!) I had a pretty impressive funk on by the time I got to my mailbox.
And then my day turned around.
Remember when I did that poll a while back and I couldn't get "answer 5" to disappear and a bunch of cheeky people picked "answer 5" even though it didn't mean anything? And then remember how I told everyone that picked answer 5 that they should send me a present? MERMANDA DID!
Mermanda sent me the most random and hilarious package I have ever received in my entire life. I would like to document it fully here but I don't think I could do it justice so I'll just share the highlights:
First of all, who doesn't love a little Mark McGrath? I don't know why Mermanda has Mark McGrath stickers but it doesn't surprise me. And now I have a Mark McGrath sticker. I will cherish it forever.
Mermanda understands my love for the double L.
Chocolate! This made me laugh extra hard because of the "Chocolat / Chocolate" bit in I Love You, Man (speaking of which, Paul Rudd was on Craig Ferguson last night and it was freaking hilarious. Seriously, go see this movie.)
And my personal favourite: an Obama sticker. Mermanda told me to stick it to a puppy and I tried, but then Stella grabbed it from me and chewed the corner off.
In conclusion: Mondays = suck and Mermanda = excellent. The end.
