Exercise in dealing with frustration

So, I have this neat new scanner/printer machine. About an hour ago, I thought to myself, "Oh, hey! I can scan in that rough map I made of Orris (from my fantasy series "The Thief's Mistake") for sothicus and mail him the image."

Of course, I put the paper in a safe place because of taking it to BayCon.

A very safe place.

Such a safe place that it isn't anywhere where I thought it would or should be.

I'm at the point of frustration where I have a choice:

1. Keep looking.


2. Just redo the damn sketch, then scan it and fax it.

You know what? I don't want to do either. I want to stomp my foot and have it be here.

I know. Not gonna happen.

Guess I'll redo the sketch.


When I'm not in such a crappy mood.

The worst part is...
You will redo the sketch and imediately thereafter find the original....I hate that...

Oooh! I hate that.
I hate putting things in a safe place that I'll "find easily" at a later time.

The goblins and gremlins know that I'm putting it somewhere safe so they "help" out....

I'm currently missing my blue tooth handset because of it...

oh lord. it happens to me too. sometimes to the point where i wonder what universe/timeline it ended up on, since, after years of turning things over, expecting to run across it eventually, it just won't show.

worse, is when i know something's gone forever, because i saw it disappear into a trashcompactor or go over a cliff, and it ends up in my bedroom.

happy hunting
