Oh, and...

(as long as I'm annoyed and whining. Who, me? Whine?)

I got a parking ticket this afternoon during my class. 10 minutes after the meter expired. During the class I didn't really want to go to, but went anyway, unprepared. Figuring I would just not participate. Except we did a bunch of group activities. Including performance and "sharing". Ahem.

The Chinese food we ordered took over an hour to get here (twice as long as they said it would), and I gagged on gristle. So much for dinner.

I've developed a scorching UTI. Worse than I've had in many years. With blood. (sorry for tmi) And aching bladder.

C very kindly agreed to run to CV.S with me to get some drugs for said UTI (perco.set was not doing the job) and when we went downstairs to leave, we found that the dog had peed all over the floor. She never does this. She did it tonight.

What else? Oh, I could think of a bunch of other non-dreadful things made uglier by the single line I've seen almost every day for the last 4 or 5.

Wah wah wah.

Done. For now.

How about you? What rankled you today? Here, have some of my triple cream brie...

And I managed to accidentally delete my entire music library in iTunes (approximately 7800 songs) this afternoon. So there's that.

Shove over Sue, I want at that Brie.

My flight was 3.5 hours late, I arrived home with no passport, and I didn't get dinner. I had to be up disgustingly early for a work function, and I had my semi-annual review, and I am stunningly average.

Yeah me.

Ha. Love the bitching!! =)

I'm an on-again/off-again reader, Sue, and I think it's been a while (if ever?) since I've left a comment. But I wanted to write and tell you thank you, again, for being so honest and open with the shit road you've been walking with your many losses. I'm no stranger to other types of loss (that whole widowhood thing) but pregnancy losses are something I didn't really know much about. But a good childhood friend of mine just miscarried at 17 weeks last week, and I thought of you many times as I listened to her words, her processing (and still hovering in shock and dealing-with-details mode), and her desires over the phone this morning.

As hard as it's been for you to live through it and also write about it, it's helped more people than you can know.

Sending you many, many good thoughts as you and C are trying again...and I'm raising a big F-you middle finger to the world for your shitty day today.

Hugs,
Candice

There should be some sort of built in grace period on parking meters. I swear, I think the meter maids just sit and try to find an expired meter. I wonder if they see ones about to expire and just hang around so they can write tickets...

It never rains but it pours.... (insert eye-rolling icon here). Yesterday wasn't too bad, just everything landing on my desk all at once. But I've had days like those too (we all have). Hang in there! Enjoy that w(h)ine & cheese!

I have some virus that seems to be making it impossible for me to eat safely. So I go to Niobe's page and see a lovely cake with pink frosting, come here and hear about triple cream brie. And it all makes me want to run straight to the bathroom. Sparkly water and crackers are all I can handle.

Is that rankling enough?

Ugh, what a bitch of a day. I'm still kind of riled up about the letter we got from the city telling us our furbaby is bothering the neighbors. That's really put a big bow on our already lackluster lives. And I realized this morning that buying a costco bag of chocolate candy for Halloween THIRTY ONE DAYS before halloween is NOT a good idea. Thanks for sharing. Doesn't it feel good to vent!?

Aunt Becky said...

I'm feeling nauseous and stabby and I'm sorry. Venting is good.

jill said...

Oh no - UTIs are so very aweful. (not to mention the rest of your aweful things... blah) I hope it gets better very quickly!

erica said...

UTI on top of everything else? Ugh. I think you deserve a good long vent.

Probably not deserving of brie, but at a meeting this a.m., one colleague bullied a staff member right in front of me. Bully has a history of this sort of thing, but also has tenure & I don't, so all I can do for now is discreetly report it.
