Motor control wanted...

...or perhaps a replacement brain would be in place?

Everything has gone wrong for me today. I started out by coming in to work - and when I stood by the door with my entrance card and tried accessing the database for the entry code ... I just got NOTFOUND back. It took me about ½ minutes time to convince the search engine behind my eyebrows, that it DID contain my entry code - and need I mention, it's the same code that I have been using for the last 6-8 years??

This evening my braindeath climaxed. First I filled up the salt grinder with fine ground salt, thus adorning the poor pork chops we were having for dinner with A LOT of salt.
Annoyed, I poured that stupid salt in the kitchen sink, and grabbed the coarse salt in the cabinet. Tipping the box of salt, I lost control of the tipping motion and SCHWUUUSH (very useful sound) about twice as much salt as the grinder could contain had spilled out of the box...

After that, I tried my hand at the broccoli, which was to be cut up, rinsed and boiled. The cutting and rinsing miraculously went well, and the broccoli was placed in an appropriate pot, which I then placed on the heater, salted and turned on.

Only when the sizzling noice had gone on for a bit, and the strange smell was spreading in the kitchen did I realize, that I should probably had added water....

Has anyone seen my brain? I believe I have misplaced it...

Oh poor you my adorable and very confused sister!
It does sound you need to rewind the last couple of days and start from scratch. Maybe you need to do the NASA trick with your brain, just shut it down for a few minutes and turn it on again!It does work for me!
But I need to ask, was that hunk of a hubby of yours around? Cause that could explain a certain degree of distraction!*wink*

beijinhos
