Every day I commute to work on my bike without injury. Except today.

Humiliatingly, I managed to fall down and hurt myself (not badly, split the skin on my knee) while not actually riding the stupid thing, but walking it up a flight of stairs. Feh.

You just couldn't fit in, could you, LB? Does this thread make you so angry that you had to deliberately crash your bike?

Spankings end with your thirties, young Megan. The forties signal the beginning of the canings.

I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that's on the worst day of my life.

-- What about today? Is today the worst day of your life?

Yeah.

-- Wow. That's messed up.

I think someone switched my desk chair for a shittier desk chair (they all look the same, but this one appears to have no spring to hold the back in place). On the other hand, maybe I'm becoming paranoid.

I'm enjoying browsing through Google books results for "and today was no exception". I call this one Btock's Nightmare.

Jesse entered the restroom and sighed with disappointment when he saw the lines for the facilities. The men's bathroom in a busy truck stop always seemed to have the longest lines, and today was no exception.

It seems like every day at work a certain project gets more fucked up, and today was no exception.

I've called it "the doomed project" for months. When I pointed out something annoying about it to a co-worker in June, I ended the e-mail with "This is discouraging", and ever since then she has said it should be our motto. I just took a four-day weekend, and we had to get someone to fill in for me while I was gone. Over that weekend I cleaned my apartment furiously, threw up (and there's no particularly raucous story to explain it), spent half an hour waiting in line in the rain, and still consider myself luckier than my sub. Part of his responsibilities were password-protecting a document, and he suggested "frustrated tears".

36 -- I used to have a client in an attractive sounding location, but because of various circumstances that really couldn't be changed, any work for them would lead only to hopelessness and despair. Associates always thought I was joking about this when I got them involved in the various matters. Until they found out I wasn't.

Commenting on the post - yes, sometimes I do that! - I think the "does not a [something] make" construction really drives me crazy for some reason. I think there's another construction I hate even more, but I can't think of it right now, probably as a defense mechanism.
