Saturday night was supposed to be the monthly meet-up I run for anyone who just wants to come and hang out over dinner and drinks. It happened, I'm told. Only I wasn't there.
While I do have a fairly good excuse involving the beginnings of a migraine, I forgot about the meet-up entirely. If I'm not well, I usually send out an emergency broadcast email letting people know. Not this time. This time, all thoughts of the meet-up completely slipped my mind. i thought I had put in the alarm for it when I entered it in my phone's calendar, but I guess not.
I'm so, so, so sorry to those who went. I understand that you had a fun time regardless, but I'm so very sorry about the whole debacle. Most everyone I've apologised to has told me it's not a big deal, but it kind of is, at least to me. I'm quite frustrated at myself for it. It's not on, and I'm sorry.
To make up for it, I'll be breaking my No-Meet-Ups-In-December rule and scheduling one for early December. So, eNewsletter subscribers, check December's email for details...
And I'm sorry again!
Sunday was better, though Saturday's headache had blossomed into a full-out migraine. I managed to get out of the house to spend the day with my Dad as a belated birthday celebration. We hung out and later went to dinner and a movie. We watched Doctor Strange, which was well worth the viewing. It was precisely what I've come to expect from Marvel.
There is a lot for me to do today, including trying to design a friend's tattoo, so I'm off for a second cup of coffee and then to get stuck into work.
