For the first time in two weeks, my Pegasus Mercury Starlight Elixir failed me. I ran for the
commuter train only to find it had been cancelled. I ran back down two long blocks for the express bus to have it arrive fifteen minutes late, then we sat in traffic for an hour. When I finally did get to work (and now in desperate need of a shower), the printer jammed a record number of times and mail was returned for insufficient postage. WTF? It's that old friend Mercury stirring up a little trouble. The Elixir had pretty much protected me up until now, and after a stellar performance last February when I had done something silly like plan a trip which included both air travel and an excessive amount of driving during a retrograde period, I thought I was invincible. But alas, I am but a mere mortal. Add to that the fact that after yesterday's "great burn-off" at the dermatologist, I look like I fell off my bike, and I'm having an incredibly bad hair day. Uncle!
