I am feeling particularly irritable today. There is not one thing to blame, but a mesh of things. For example, at lunch? Chick-Fil-A forgot to give me a straw in the drivethru, and of course I didn't notice until I was several miles away. NO STRAW people -- what am I to do? WHAAAATTT? Put my LIPS on the FILTHY FAST-FOOD CUP?????? Surely you Jest.

I also discovered on Friday (and it's been festering below the surface of my outer calm since then) that someone HIT MY CAR in the parking lot at Happy Hour Thursday night and left a BIG dent in my fender. Huge. I don't know why this surprises me -- my car has been a giant bumper car from the moment I acquired it, for some reason. It's like after my wreck in 2003, all bets were off, all guardian angels jumped ship, and I've just been at the mercy of every idiot driver in Austin. BAH.

So that adds one more dent to repair on my 2-year-old car, and I don't have a lot of play money right now since i'm planning a vacation and stuff like that. You know.

Also? My fabulous lawn guy will not take the hint and stop dropping by my house in the evenings to pick up a check or chat. I HATE the drop by!!! I don't have his address or I'd just mail him the checks. Or even better, if I knew the days he was coming, I would leave him a check on the porch. But noooo -- he waits until i'm all snuggled up on my couch watching Law&Order before banging on my door until I give up and answer it. Then he wants to chat about the state of my lawn, and I'm like "JUST FIX IT." I don't think he's yet to see me wearing a bra. Yeah, TMI? WELCOME TO MY WORLD.

Um, I might be a little hormonal -- did I mention that earlier? No? Well... yeah.

Also? After my sister scrubbed my house from stem to stern this weekend? I arrived home from work last night to find a brand new, juicy hairball on my bedroom carpet, right beside my bed. THANKS MEGS. No blood though, thank goodness for small victories.

I think one of the things that is really irritating the crap out me today is this: I struggled to stay awake last night to watch this movie that started on TNT at midnight; I made it until about 20 minutes before the end and fell asleep. AGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!! I will probably never know because while I continue to pay for Netflix, I continue too to clutch the same two movies I've had going on 3 months without ever watching them, and I know I will never get around to renting the movie from last night, much less watching it.

grumblegrumblegrumble. grumble.
Go ahead, make my day. I DARE you.

I promise to try and write something happy to balance things out, maybe later. keep your fingers crossed... i know i will.
