Fun night last night.
There I am, watching the new Star Trek on DVD before going to bed. I'd just gotten to the final battle, where the Enterprise has its Big Damn Gunship moment, when the phone rings.
Phone calls at 2330? Never a good thing
My aunt and youngest cousin were involved in a car accident last night, where a minibus ran a red light and smashed into the driver's side of their car. My cousin was fine, apart from shock, but we were quite concerned about my aunt, as she had pain in her neck and spine, and had to have X-Rays and CT scans. So, me and my mum rushed over to the A&E, where we spent the next two and half hours waiting for news. If wasn't for the fact that both me and my mum had work today, we would have stayed even later. Luckly, it seems that my aunt wasn't badly injured and was discharged a few hours after we left. Still, not a plesent way to spend the night.
Work was, to be frank, shit today. Well, at least the morning was. the PBs were all fully booked, and it seemed that all complaints decieded to come in a once, as well as an appointment that was believed to be cancelled, and another one had taken it's place. Thank god we has someone over from another branch doing training and who was willing to help out. Of course, being tired and irratible didn;t help, and the fact that my lunch kept being pushed back didn't help. First it was eleven, my normal tine, then it was 1130, then it was 1230, but of course by this time we were running late, and I didn't go until 1240. This might not seem like late, but when it's 1 hour 40 mins after you've been going for most of the past year, you tend to get a bit hungry. Also remembered why I havn't had melted chedder since having my brace fitted. Yeah, it got stuck everywhere.
Got home, to discover, that the entire family had congrigated and my aunt's for take out, barring me because I lost my phone charger and didn't get the message. Still had take out, though. Left enough for tomorrow was well.
Then got a phone call from my dad, more to confirm that I would be free tomorrow night for a long phone call. The one thing he did tell me? Jester, his dog, one of the few dogs I've ever felt truly comfortable with? Died in a car accient.
Someone up there clearly hates me.
I'm just gonna read some (more) Avatar fic before going to bed. Finally finished ther series on Sunday. Now I feel no guilt in reading spoiler fanfic. (Which I've been doing sine I was at aroung mid-season 1, so yeah...)
