The Blackberry: A gift gone bad...

Ophelia! Tomorrow? Drinks? I'm so's just I've been super busy at work this week! It's been crazy...and you know me..."Geek by week, Freak by week-end!". So yes, tomorrow we meet! Plus, I have to tell you about the so-called "present" I got at work...or so I thought it was a present!

I got back to work on Monday morning bright and early to learn the news every new-hire, entry-level, twenty-something employee wans to hear: You're getting a black berry!

"Yes" I thought! Whohooooooooooo!! It was like a mini promotion! Seriously, I'm super honored that my boss  has deemed it necessary and clearly I do see it as a plus (not everyone at the office has one!). I got my BB...spread my Pin to all mis amigos...and for about 2 days I fell in love with it...

That is until last night at 11.30pm an email comes in from my boss about an event we'll be running in 2 weeks...And the subject read: Urgent!

What the f**k?? What could be urgent at almost midnight on a Wednesday night...I had been streaming season 4 of Madmen on my laptop in bed! But no, this was "Urgent"...and HAD to be attended to...So with that I spent my night going back and forth with her until around 1am...when the issue was finally resolved and I could finally go to bed!

But since last night it has been the same bloody thing...I woke up this morning to more 7am!! And I just went off to lunch, and basically spent my break attached to this silly gadget responding endlessly to emails...

This isn't a friggin Blackberry, it is indeed a friggin Crackberry! I'm going crazy! This is day 4 and I'm already pulling my hair and loosing any feeling in my thumb tips!
