Fortunately, Unfortunately

I just wanna go home, hang out with my kid, before another growth spurt chases this incarnation away and she becomes a new person, again.

By the way, I'm in class all this week.

Fortunately, it's available online and I didn't have to chance catching H1N1 via mass transit travel.

Unfortunately, I have to sit here and listen to my speaker phone ALL.DAY.LONG.

Fortunately, there aren't any (major) technological glitches so far.

Unfortunately, not being able to whisper to the person sitting next to you, "Pssst, what page are we on?!" kinda sucks.

Fortunately, the instructor tells so many personal stories, I don't think it matters WHAT page we're on.

Unfortunately, there's nothing to stop me from playing Word Challenge on Facebook during lecture time, since he reads each slide anyway and I can listen to him just fine.

Fortunately, my Word Challenge skills are getting pretty hawt, baby.

Unfortunately, there's a test at the end of this training, and it's not on Word Challenge.

This is precisely how I would spend time in class, if I were taking a class remotely. Via phone.

Which seems like what I would do. But not what I would do well.

My vice is Lexulous. (and not the official Scrabble, either. The busy board sets off spasms of ADHD)

Sounds like me on conference calls at my old job.

hahahaha!!! I used to do software training sessions via phone--where I was the instructor-- and I SWEAR the people on the other end were playing computer games. I hated doing phone instruction. It's like telling somebody how to disassemble and reassemble the engine in their car---OVER THE PHONE! Not productive.
