And people say memorizing license plates is stalkerish...

This morning I was running late, and I'll tell you why. At 3:30am, my doorbell rang. I am not a heavy sleeper, so in my delirious state I stumbled to my living room...where I somewhat came to my senses and decided against actually answering to 3:30 callers. I turned on my little surveillance intercom phone thing and no one was there. Huh...well, long story short, I was starting to get creeped out by this whole situation, so I was unable to get back to sleep for the better part of an hour. And I have to wake up at 5:30. No good.

When I finally did roll out of bed, I was sluggish and not really caring. Yeah, I took my time this morning in the shower and ironing and whatnot. Usually the other people don't get to work until 7:30 or so, so I thought I was pretty safe if I came in around 7 (I'm usually here between 6:30 and 6:45). That way, I can just stay a little later this afternoon and no one's worse for the wear.

I'm driving up University Avenue to my office, and I'm stopped at a stop light kind of by my boss' house (he lives lots closer than I do). I look over as my light is turning green and see that he is coming from the cross street. I wouldn't have known it was him unless I had memorized his license plate from the many occasions I've had to take the truck into the shop. (Yes, this really does come in handy! I know many of you think I'm a psycho, but seriously...) In my head I'm thinking, "Awh crap...I've got to beat him there so he doesn't know I've been a slacker this morning!" Luckily the light he was stuck at was a long one, so I had a couple minutes head start.

I got to the office, ran up the stairs and tried to double time all of my usual morning chores. He came in a couple minutes later...and had no idea I had just barely beat him there. :) I'm not saying that I'm trying to pull one over on my boss...and he's really understanding of extenuating circumstances (does a mystery ring of the doorbell at 3:30 count as such?), but it looks much better for me if the office is open and things are running when my boss gets here...even if it's only been for a minute.

What happened to your background? It's all white. Maybe its a ghost.
