Dave!One of the biggest disadvantages of working in a small town is an early Fed-Ex drop-off time. In bigger cities, you can get a fantastically late drop-off time of 8:00 even 9:00pm... but me? I've got until 3:30pm to get my stuff together. This makes working under a tight deadline really difficult, because I don't even get a full work-day to finish a job.

In an effort to get a jump on things, I got up at 4:30am and started right to work. This would give me plenty of time to finish my work before FedEx Guy shows up and ruins my day 11 hours later...

Me. Ready and waiting for the FedEx Guy.

So there I am, happily working along when... BAM!! The internet goes down. And I need the internet to get my work done.

Uh oh.

So much for getting a jump on things.

Long story short... I end up trippin' balls all afternoon, killing myself to make my 3:30 deadline once I have internet.

And tomorrow I do it all over as I attempt to get everything ready before flying out again.


I need a less-stressful life.

Or a fifth of tequila.


I need a less-stressful life AND a fifth of tequila.

UPDATE: OMG! Kitty Spangles Solitaire for Mac is on sale for just $11.95! ONE DAY ONLY, September 15th, 2007 over at MacUpdate. You can read about me going gay for Kitty here.

    “Trippin’ balls”….haven’t heard that forever! Sorry your day was so stress-a-licious. When you come to California, we’ll make it all go away!

  2. Iron Fist says:

    No problem, I’ll FedEx you a bottle of tequila!

  3. Caroline says:

    Yuck on the interwebs being down, but being after midnight on the East Coast and I’m still doing some work, I ain’t got a whole lot of sympathy… 🙂

  4. Bre says:

    Well, at least the 5th of Tequila is easy enough to obtain…

  5. RW says:

    Iron Fist stole my comment. I’m going to sue!

  6. Jeff says:

    FedEx… When it absolutely, positively has to get there before you’re done!

  7. Avitable says:

    I’ve never heard the phrase “trippin’ balls”. I’ll have to work that into my daily usage now.

  8. Lewis says:

    What??!!! You went gay for pussy? Oh, wait, you said gay for kitty…..I was temporarily mixed up (which isn’t that unusual, unfortunately)

  9. SJ says:

    Like, OMG!!! You totally know my good buddy José!

  10. Tracy Lynn says:

    It’s more like you need an IV drip of tequila. Or Valium, Valium’s nice.

  11. jodi says:

    i’m in total agreement with you on kitty spangles! if you are a mac user, it’s the best $11.95 you could spend today!

  12. Wayne says:

    Like Avi, I’ve not heard the term either. A friend of mine had come up with a term “rip tits” or “rippin’ tits” just to see if it would come back to him, but it never did. He wanted to come up with something violent enough to actually be thought of as cool, like “oh that’s so rippin’ tits!” or “rippin’ tits, that’s awesome”.

    Were you the one to make up the trippin balls line?

  13. sandra says:

    Maybe if you gave the FedEx people some tequila, they’d forget about the early deadline?

  14. Dave2 says:

    “Trippin’ Balls” is a term for “freaking out” that has been around for quite a while. It is most famous for having been uttered by Neil Patrick Harris in “Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle.”

  15. kapgar says:

    The very thought that your balls hang so low as to result in you tripping on them really has me concerned for your well being.
