Today could have been a really crappy day but it actually turned out okay!
First off, Miss G had to work in College Station today, which is not her favorite agenda! The store is like an hour and a half away, and it's old, tiny, and dumpy. So Miss G got her Starbuck and hit the road, and as she past the last of Houston's strip malls and got into open country she realized it was bluebonnet season! If you've never driven on Texas highways during bluebonnet season, you really should put it on your list. It's not as fabulous as fall leaves, I'm sure, but this was a really good year with perfect conditions, so the roadsides are covered with clouds of blue blossoms!
Once she got to Aggieland, she reached into her bag to pull out her laptop, and soon realized she didn't have the power adapter. Mentally retracing her steps, she realized she must have left it at the Hyatt Regency after she made a presentation at an awards banquet yesterday, so she was SOL at that point. But luckily, the HR Admin who had worked with the banquet staff at the hotel had retrieved the cord, so Miss G just had to pick it up at the office after she got back into town.
As she was returning to Houston, the skies darkened and we had one of those rainstorms that can only happen on the Gulf coast! The world turned black, and windshield wipers can't wipe fast enough to provide much visibility. Miss G inched her way into downtown, and realized she was lucky, because the store was still open, so she could walk from the parking garage to the store in the underground tunnel and not get soaked on the streets. Another silver lining from a really gray cloud!
When she got to her desk, sitting right next to the power cord was a box from Harry and David that Miss G knew contained the thoughtful gift basket sent by everyone's favorite blogging trucker, Tugboat! So it was a great day, with no frustrations and no upsets! "Better living through chemicals", Miss G always says!
Oh, and a postscript for DD, who commented on Miss G's last post that Miss G was inviting a stalker by publishing her performance schedule: "Gurl, don't you a know a stalker is every drag queens dream come true?! Finally, she gets the undivided attention she so richly deserves!!!"
