Help! My brain needs a reboot.  
Seriously. I've been looking for a new everyday watch for a little while and just found one on an online shopping site. I completed the purchase only to realise that the delivery address they had for me was the bank I resigned from three years ago - which shows how long it's been since I bought anything from that site. I just hadn't noticed the wrong address until after I finalised the order. It's all sorted now, but seriously you think I'd have noticed before it got that far.

Then last night I wanted to use a paypal voucher for $50 that I'd been sent - it had to be used on Ebay and I had a dress all picked out. I'd tried it on in the physical store at lunchtime and was pretty keen on buying it for $50 off; except I didn't enter the voucher number when I placed the order, so I was charged full price. I then ordered a second one, using the voucher this time, and when they both arrive I'll return one for a refund. But how bloody annoying, all the same.

And then today at work I was talking to the guy that I've sat next to for the past three months; he asked me to forward an email containing a policy update which had come out before he started with us and while I was promising to do so, I was also panicking a little bit because for the life of me I could not remember his name.

Growing old can just sod off.

MG's Great Uncle David always said it wasn't that his brain was aging but rather that he had so much more information stored than a kid did so it took longer to process it.

That's so true - you have to look in so many cupboards to find where you stored it! *g*

I always do things like that - I'm the worst with remembering to pick up vouchers when I'm shopping. Ugh!

It's so annoying especially when this was for a $50 discount.Luckily I was able to easily return the second dress for a refund today.

Sad to say I just had one, or at least two weeks off work - didn't go anywhere as I'm saving for the big one next year. But yeah, could do with some time away for sure.

Oh dear! She's on a slippery slope here. You're head is probably still awash with Dr Strange, so anything not as important as BC has slipped to the back filing system in your brain. *bg*

Heh if only I could blame that.... *g*. These are just the latest examples of my increasing forgetfulness / inattentiveness. It's a slippery slope, all right!
