Today, so far.... - The Void: Mind Wanderings of a Lost Soul
Today, so far....
In today's episode, we open to a beautifully bed-raggled Susan waking up to find the other side of the bed empty. No biggee, as fiance commonly falls asleep in the bathtub or on the couch. Susan stumbles to the bathroom for the morning process and see the tub empty. Noting the silence of no snoring, Susan stumbles to the doorway of the living room. Empty. Kitchen? Empty. Spare room? Empty. Susan begins to panic, as fiance was still at work when she went to sleep last night, and now he's not in the house. She runs to the kitchen door and sees fiance's car is missing. True panic sets in. Susan gets the cell phone, lights a cig and calls the Fiance's number. No answer. Repeat. No answer. Calls his parent's house, no answer. Susan leaves a frantic message that she is trying to find the fiance that it doesn't look like he came home last night. Calls his brother, no answer. Repeat frantic message. Totally freaked out now, Susan dials fiance's number repeatedly and is close to tears. Not knowing what to do, Susan calls her bestest buddy Catherine to find that she's not home yet. So scared and freaked and worried, Susan goes back to investigating the house looking for clues. There are no notes, and everything appears like it was last night when she went to bed. Susan begins to dial fiance's cell again and again. In a twist of surprise, the fiance finally answers the cell phone with "I know". Susan is so relieved and pissed at the same time that she didn't know what to say. So she proceeds to yell at him that she was so worried, and she's called everyone looking for him, and by god why the hell didn't he leave a note and I'm so mad at you. When he gets home a few minutes later, Susan pounces on him and mock beats him up. Bestest friend calls at that moment and is much relieved to hear that everything is ok, but also gets to hear Susan going off on inconsiderate fiance who had made her worry.

And then I went to work....I tell you, I was so upset. Still shaken from it. I mean, you don't do that to someone, you just don't. So where was he? Walmart for doughnuts and shoes. And why did he not leave a note or anything? Because he thought he'd be home before I woke up. And not answering the cell phone? He left it in the car. I could have killed him.

but now? now my jaw hurts, sinuses are killing me (sinus draining, is there anything nastier?), and I still have to be at work to do another recert this afternoon. I feel like poopy, absolute poopy. Maybe this sinus medication will kick in. I HATE SPRING. Now, no more whining.....

What's good? Finding a new fandom that has so few members that I have a fighting chance of getting in on the early stage and having some sort of connection. It's sooooooo great to meet a group of women who share a similar passion. I am loving it. It makes me imagine what things were like in the early LOTR madness. It's a lovely feeling. *hugs to my new ladies*

What's really good? Getting to see Lost for Dummies tonight. Although, not quite as good as a new episode, at least it's something I haven't see before, exactly. And I'm dancing around waiting for next week. Not to mention, all this new Alias week after week is awesome!

What's meh? uhm...probably tonight's dinner, which is some new product in the store expressly for crockpots. It could be....interesting. Or it could be good. Guess we'll find out.

*whine* But I don't want to go back to work!*whine*

Fine, I'll do it, but I'm not promising anything.

Feeling: sick sick

Finding a new group of people to connect to must be thrilling. I wish I actually had some sort of fan type interest so that I could do the same. I suppose there is Lost and Alias, but for some reason I just don't think I would fit in.

Hope you're feeling better soon.

i have made a few of those crock pot things ... they aren't bad - just add some pepper and garlic salt and it will be tasty.

As for the inconsiderateness ... when I was married, the ex didn't come home one night. At all. No call. No answer. He was working in Raleigh and was supposed to drive home that night and get there around 3. I got up at 4 - no answer - didn't hear from him until 3 that afternoon. He wasn't feeling well and crashed at a friends up there and didn't think to call. He and I had some words over that. Actually, I had words, he looked at me like I was crazy to have worried.

Exactly! They know that they are safe, but we don't know that! I hate the "you're crazy to think that" look.
