I can remember lots of WHMS quotes, but not much else

As I was leaving the house in a rush this morning I realized that I had forgotten my coat. I was too lazy to get out of my car and go back into the house for it. No big deal, I thought, since today I would be parking in a parking garage and walking just a few feet into the building.

My last thought before I pulled out of the garage: This is probably stupid of me. What if there’s a fire drill or something?

Ha. Ha ha ha.

So guess what happened at work?

Ding ding ding! You win!

So I stood outside shivering and cursing myself until they gave us the all-clear. Then I went back into the office and closed the door.

And my coat fell off the back hook and landed in a pile at my feet.

Sometimes I think it is a miracle that I am allowed to hold a job. Especially one that involves teaching.

In other news, we are having a When Harry Met Sally quote-off over at Bearette’s. Come join the fun! No coats required.

Locked wallet and car keys in office cabinet. Cannot find key to cabinet. Am stupid. PLEASE HELP.

Found key. Liberated wallet and car keys. Forgot to eat lunch today. Am starving. Even so, will not have to spend night at office. That's good.

You know, I remember reading that supernormal intuition can be a gift of INFJs.

Now how did I know there was going to be a fire drill? Huh?

On the other hand, as I was locking my cabinet I did not know that I was going to lose the key.

Oh my gosh. lol I was just randomly trolling through blogs - at work, no less - and came across yours. So funny! I'm glad no one walked past to see me grinning at this computer. Thanks for the silent giggles - I'll try to come back for more. :)

We all have those moments. Sometimes my mom looks for her glasses when she's wearing them. Or I'll look for a hat when it's on.

I think I actually did that with a backpack. I guess the whole Frey thing has made me a stickler for accuracy.

I think I've had more than a few days like that one.

I absolutely LOVE When Harry Met Sally. Don't know if I could compete in a quote off though.

I see you have your blogroll up! I have to apologize, for a while I had your blog listed below "Ramblings of the Chick Lit Book Girl," then I figured out that Q comes *before* R.

Hehe. You're normally quite good with the alphabet, so we'll give you a pass on that one. :)

That was so funny. I'm sorry you had to live through that stress, but it provided great humor.

I want to share this with you...we're going to go see her tomorrow (hoping Russell will let me take her home). I want her so bad and I suppose I'm throwing my terrier research out the window!!

I thought she would look familiar to someone you know well.

She could pass for Alex's little sister.

I just got out of the car and realized I didn't have my keys in my hands like I usually do. So I went and opened the back door, unzipped the window (I have a jeep), crawled over the back seat and couldn't find them anywhere. They were in my purse which was sitting on hood.

Good times. I guess everyday can't go perfect. :o)

NM-- she is adorable! If she had the white chin, chest, and paws, they could practically be twins. :)

Kim- once, on a high-stress day, I actually started crying because I left my keys on the front seat when I shut the door. A co-worker came to help and pointed out that the doors were unlocked.

Oh no. When I was working in MA, I locked myself out of the car once (it was my mother's) and my supervisor waited with me for someone to come and jimmy it open. When I got home, my mother pointed out that there was a spare key taped behind the license plate (I had felt around for it, but couldn't find it).

My supervisor never found out, though ;)
