A Series of Unfortunate Events....

.the cell phone.
You might have already heard this story from my "informative" email, but I lost my cell phone on Monday. Not only lost, but randomly "picked up" again. The thing was, I was convinced that I had just left it at home on my desk. I pick Brenda up, and she tells me that she phoned it three times, from different phones and some girl answered each time. The girl carried out a conversation with Brenda, saying it was her "friend's phone". Brenda said "Is your friend Sharelle?", which apparently confused her.

Then the kicker - I phone Matt to ask him about the last time I called him. He says..."well your phone called me ten minutes ago but it wasn't you". The girl called him and said: "Hi Matt...", then giggled and hung up. That seriously happened. Apart from the "lost phone" thing, it actually makes for a pretty funny/random story.

.the tooth.
On Friday night, we had a little girls night which involved dinner up on the Boathouse patio. Things were all well and good, I was eating my Coconut shrimp when I hear a "crack". I chipped my tooth on the fork! It's not a big chip, but its definitelythere. I feel a strange tingly sensation when I eat cold things now. I probably shouldn't have told this story because now people will be looking at my tooth. Actually, that would be pretty awkward.

.the shoes.
This story is actually pretty boring, so I will keep it simple. Aldo double-charged me for a pair of shoes. That isn't even the worst part. I convinced myself they were great, because they were just what I wanted: brown flats. They were on sale and I thought "walking around the house" a bit would break them in. Not so much. So alas, they are going back to the store. So, now I have a double-charge and a return. Lame-o.

Perhaps this post was too negative. To lighten the mood, I suggest you go read this excerpt from the new self-help sensation: The Secret. Its the funniest thing I have read in a while. It's hard to believe people actually believe this stuff. An excerpt:

"Let go of all those limiting thoughts. Food cannot cause you to put on weight, unless you think it can."
Really? That's phenomenal. I am going to eat a bowl of Ben & Jerry's right now, and I don't think it will have any fat in it. Oh I like this philosophy....

K,no joke I know "those people that believe this stuff" I was forced to watch and nod along all the time thinking, "you've lost it" while trying not to judge.

Your life is amusing, but I am nonetheless sorry for your loss and difficulties.

PS: Peg has the office of my DREAMS in his house. Aka: it has a lot of books on a lot of bookshelves. AND... and... he definitely said "are you tracking with me?" seven times in a period of four hours.

The legacy lives on. :)

this is a great post. not too negative at all. i cannot believe that some girl out there is using your cel phone AND calling people in your list! that's gall. i think you should call her and tell her that you want your phone back. she'll probably just giggle.

Sharelle, now that you mentioned it... your phone did call me like 4 times in a row just over a week ago... every time I answered... but I could only hear someone in the background... who I kind just assumed was you.
