Hi:
I'm surprised at how talkative I feel lately. I blame it on Amarinda and Kelly...Shh, don't tell them.

Anyway, today I want to gripe about being inconvenienced.

Rumor has it that, J. Aniston and O. Wilson are in town shooting a movie. Good for them, more power to them furthering their art.

But why oh why did their movie have to inconvenience me... I tried to park in the FAU designated parking lot only to find out that the 'President' of the University has given the film crew permission to park their many trailers there.

So now instead of parking right next to the entrance of the building, I have to cross a street, walk through a parking lot, go up a set of stairs, take the elevator just to get to my car.

Argh.

Don't get me wrong... I understand the importance of walking just like the next man or woman. But they could have let us know before hand that we would have to find alternate parking. We received no emails, no signs were posted, hell, not even a damn carrier pigeon provided us with this information.

Oh, and don't forget, although all other parking was unavailable, the top FAU execs still were able to park in the lot.

I'm gritting my teeth, trying to bear it, without swearing overly loud.

Griping can be so good sometimes...

It's so NOT my fault. You had to be all cool and tell me about your gnarly accent when you get mad. Me? At best anger gives me a southern accent. Odd.

As to the carrier pigeons... yes, it sucks. City hawks often hunt them down for dinner. I'm SURE the university sent out missives in just such a format. They would NEVER inconvenience you or refuse to tell you something. *snark*

Oh c'mon. You know your southern accent is all sexy and stuff.

And the hawks eating my message adn its carrier. Argh...

Oh, Kelly. If you don't mind I added a link to your blog here...

Kelly Kirch said...

Uh huh. Like I mind publicity. I'll be adding yours too. We have that whole mutual appreciation thing going on.

Amarinda Jones said...

Sure - blame me. I have broad shoulders. I think the university president person is a wanker and he should have had the courtesy to tell the staff. My thoughts are the film people aren't any more important than the every day workers...let them walk

Amarinda Jones said...

BTW - what's your email address? Is it somewhere obvious and I am having a dyed red head moment and can't find it?

Anika Hamilton said...

Maybe a little red...but I think it was really me this time...I couldn't find it either, then the light bulb factor occured. I never provided it (tongue in cheek). Oops...its under my profile now though...and here it is...

Kelly Kirch said...

Of course, sweet thang. And thank YOU for the add.

Ashley Ladd said...

Hugs. I hope you didn't miss class or was late.

They should at least let you know in advance.

Anika Hamilton said...

Nope. I wasn't late.

School is one place I always try to get to extra early.

It was actually more annoying than inconvenient. :-)

Amarinda Jones said...

Ok...where's the next bloody blog woman???
