I Am the Choco Taco Thief

I have already managed to do two really spacey things today that may have bad consequences.
  1. The tech support guy left a message saying he wanted the fancy digital video camera I checked out months ago back. I was supposed to be using this for taping student conferences, but I just haven't managed to get around to it. And when I looked on my shelf for the camera, it was gone. I have no idea when it disappeared or how. And he is one of those horrible noodgy people who will be absolutely hysterical about this for months.

  2. There is a conference that I am in charge of that takes place every Thursday at 11. Everyone in the department is supposed to come to it. Today at 12:15 I realized that I DIDN'T GO TO MY OWN CONFERENCE. My department chief did, though!
So now I'm off to see patients. Let's hope that I don't kill one of them with my ineptitude.

(And the other day I had to stay late and I was starving and I found a Choco Taco in the staff fridge and ate it ... and today there's a huge sign on the fridge bitching and moaning about how someone stole the Choco Taco. I didn't own up to it. I just snuck away. I am a space case and a Choco Taco thief.

If the person who owned the Choco Taco reads this, I can only say: It tasted good.)

Update: The hysterical noodgy tech guy just came by and found out about the missing camera, and said ... "Oh, don't worry about it. Maybe someone borrowed it, or maybe not. I'll get you another one!" He recently started dating one of the administrative assistants in our office, so the only thing I can think of that is making him so relaxed is, maybe he's finally getting some? Whatever it is, I'm not complaining!

Dude, do the right thing. Replace the Choco Taco or else you're gonna burn in hell. You know it's true, too. Maybe even two Choco Tacos, with a Post-it note apologizing. But get your husbadn to write the note so they won't trace your handwriting. And wear gloves so there are no fingerprints.

I know, I KNOW! I was actually thinking, like, five Choco Tacos. TrophyHusband thinks I should do it publically, so I can't get him to write the anonymous note. Anyway the person doesn't work Fridays, so it will have to be Monday. I'll just writhe in guilt until then.
It did hit the spot, though.

God I bet it felt good to get it out here though!

I think the only thing in the world I would ever steal would be a Choco Taco!
