Odd one. Shot down after already scrubbing the mission, returning to base, and hanging out in the O-Club.

Yeah, that pretty much covers what happened.
Not at all pleasant, but it is what it is.
No point in going further with it, as it’d just be a waste of time and energy, not to mention serving no useful purpose.
In other, non-emotionally numbing news, I’ve headed back underground.
Due to the inclement weather (rapid snow followed by frigid cold) I took the Bus/Subway combo into work yesterday, and the Subway today (seeing as there were no buses and standing to wait for one… well it was just too damned cold for that). Yesterday the streets were a mess around here as usual, and I really didn’t feel up to dealing with all the people who have no idea how to drive on snow and ice. Same thing today, and probably tomorrow, maybe Thursday & Friday as well. Monday wasn’t terrible, although the lack of a non-limited bus on the way home was annoying. Not as annoying as discovering I’d power walked 10 blocks to get home in time to watch House in HD (new TV), only to find a double episode of 24, a show I don’t watch and have never warmed up to.
Today was less pleasant, what with having to hoof it to the train, then wait forever for the 1 train at Times Square, which turned out to affect a good number of my coworkers as well. The ride home was uneventful, the playlist was good and long enough to last all the way home with tracks to spare, even with the walk from the subway to the house.
Yesterday I also made a decision that could turn out really well, or be the worst clusterfuck of a mistake I’ve made in a good long time. Not going to go into details about it just yet, though.
Check back in a few weeks to see if it’s going OK, or if I’m updating my resume and cursing excessively about what an idiotic mistake it was.
The only expectation I’m trying to take into this is that it’ll be different, which I feel like I desperately need.
To hope for the best… I’d like to, but at the moment, hope’s something people delude themselves with to stave off the inevitable letdown.
Aaaand that’s as close as I want to get to being this dude today, so I’ll end this here.
