are you there god? it’s me margaret

i woke up this morning and it was as though i hadn’t slept at all. i sleepwalked through my day, bumping into things and not thinking very clearly at all. it was an awful feeling; i hate it when my head is super cloudy like that. when i got home from work i had a 2.5 hour nap and felt somewhat awake again for the first time in a couple days – energyless, but awake all the same.

my day at work had some interestingness to it, if you’re a geek like me that is. i covered for a helpdesk guy for a while today while he went to a job interview and ended up spending time trying to configure a mac running os x to print to an lpr printer across campus. it didn’t work, but they gave us the wrong ip address, so i was pleased i figured out how to do it. i also had the pleasure of helping a girl reinstall windows on a computer that her dad broke for her. how nice.

robin and i came across a randomly placed mailbox in city park tonight. the obvious question is: why exactly is there a mailbox in the park? i don’t have an answer to this question, but it made us want to write letters and see if they get picked up. some possibilities:

  • dear santa. this year i want a pony, some masters of the universe action figures and some fireworks.
  • dear god, why do bad things happen to good people? also: can you grant me the ability to fly? thanks in advance.
  • dear homeless people, i am not trying to steal your thoughts. thank you.

half the fun of that would of course be watching whoever empties the mailbox read the letters, but i think that’s gonna be my new hobby all the same. if you have any suggestions for mail, feel free to leave them in the comments section. i’m such a comment whore – and an unsuccessful one at that.

robin also sent me some pictures he took at last night’s baseball game. here’s one of scott’s kids crawling all over me. aww.
