Something got corrupted yesterday and I have to delete it before it affects the future. This entry serves as a backup just in case we need something although I am pretty certain the entire day is un-useable. What I am going to put in its place is a good memory from last year. When the TNR, friends, and I were all together basking in golden sunlight and riding our bikes. I will run it as a replacement for the entire day. To make sure this memory “sticks” I will post photos (thanks to Tom Roberstson) of the new memory. Now, here is the back-up.
Something went awry with sleep. All I remember is that I stayed up late and have no reason why. Just stayed up late, maybe something shifted, I don’t know. No matter because today is an important day.
Today I need to stay by the phone. I am supposed to get a phone call from MSU Bozeman about a possible job position. It is looking good but I will know more when I receive my phone call.
I had a great ride into work with my commute-mate Lydia. As I entered one of our offices for a meeting I reached down to make sure my phone was on vibrate. I didn’t want to miss any calls. My pocket was empty. I rushed into my office and investigates the entire room. I lost my phone!
I settled down and put in a good 3 hours of work which allowed me to leave on a early lunch break. It was a nice day and the sun was out. Still though, something wasn’t right. The bike ride seemed forced and not organic. As I approached the Clark Fork River I started to realize something was different today. A sign read, “Trail closed”.
Weird, just three hours ago I rode this trail. I turned and went the long way to cross the river. Highly annoyed by the detour I got home and reached in my bag for the key … nothing. It was at this time I decided it appropriate to throw a mild tether tantrum. I threw my wallet against the building. This was a total copout because I knew there was nothing in a wallet that could break and the sheer lack of mass made it harmless to anything. The wallet fell to the ground with a splat.
The fit went un noticed and robbed me of any fulfillment. A fit just doesn’t have the same affect if there are no witnesses. In fact as I looked around I saw no one. No vehicles, no walkers, nothing. And it was the busiest time of the day.
I spent the rest of the day overcoming the “situation” of not having my phone and being locked out of my apartment. When I did finally get back to work I was driving my car. Like I said, something is really off today.
It is now evening and I have been starring at the wall since I arrived home. I was trying to piece together the day and nothing seemed right. I seemed to be one step to the left of reality. I think I will get online and see if anyone else has experienced any problems.
Facebook reads, “Lydia, Katie and I did sneak preview ride to Beacon tonight. Flowers in prime shape. This Thursday night will be fantastic!”. So I went to my GMail account and re-read a previous email. Sure enough it said “Tuesday Night Sneak Preview”. I could of swore that earlier in the day, when the memory was corrupted, I read “Wednesday Night Sneak Preview”. Oh no, the world has moved on. Problem is, I haven’t. I will go to bed and reboot.
