The Last 24 hours

Well, the last 24 hours have been a complete blur. I woke up at 0530H yesterday morning so that I could prepare for a business meeting w/ some business associates in Ottawa.

After writing down some notes, I figured I should probably have a shower so that I don't offend potential co-workers with my foul stench. I ran into my mother heading off to work at 0615H. She informed me that there was no running water. GREAT! So I called the maintenance facility in Ottawa to have them inform me that there was a broken water main. The city operator kindly infomed me that there was no ETA on the fixation of the water.

I decided that my best bet was to continue to prepare for the meeting and then try and have a shower before I left. At 0830H I decided that I should go have a shower at a gym somewhere near the site of my meeting. So I packed a towl, some soap, shampoo and my razor and headed off. I stopped at the Sportsplex in Nepean and convinced the nice girl behind the counter to let me use the facilities free of charge. :)

Meeting was scheduled for 1000H. Long story short, they were both a no-show. I was less than amused considering I had gone through considerable effort to get there in a presentable fashion.

After returning, I did a little bit of boxing day shopping w/ my bro's. A friend of mine from high-school picked me up for a little high-school re-union. It was nice to see some faces. Some people I hadn't seen in 4-5 years. It was great fun, well minus the 80's night. Don't get me wrong. I like some 80's tunes, but it just reminded me too much of 1st year university @ "The Pit".

Arrggg... so now I'm slightly hung-over and could really use some good bacon & eggs.

Fun through-and-through though.
