The Ramblings of a Damaged Mind
Long Day
Well, today was very busy, which hasn't been unusual. I never got to lunch, and I needed to go shopping on the way home, so I stopped by Beezer's in Northboro on the way home. Nice night, so I ate outside off the shelf in the back of my PT. :-) unfortunately the lid popped off my soda when I picked it up, the cup kind of crushing, spilling a bunch of Pepsi on the back of my car. Fortunately mostly out side - on the bumper, etc. And I keep an old beach towel in my car for just such emergencies - really, it comes in handy. So it wasn't a disaster.

Then I went shopping, which I've been meaning to do for *weeks*. Since I was out of a ton of stuff, I spent around $300. Ouch. And I try to be a good boy and use coupons and everything. I even deliberately picked up a few brands because I had some coupons - then I forgot to give them to the cashier. I remembered as I was walking out. Grumble.

Then I got home, unpacked, got out of my work clothes and called a friend... noticing my message light was blinking. It is good news, bad news from my landlord. The good news is indeed very good, and welcome - but in the short term it is fucking annoying. The little driveway/parking spot I have is getting paved! It has been VERY rutted, and turned into a mud pit when thawing this spring - the surface thawed, but the frost was still in the ground. Yucky. So cool, it is being paved.

Which means I can't park there for a week or so as they do the work then it cures. Of course, I'm parked there right now. I came home to find someone had laid a bed of gravel and such and packed it down. And I figured "Cool, the landlord had the parking area leveled out." So I parked to unload. Now I know that was just the base layer for the paving. And now I have to get dressed and go move my car - hopefully there is a place to park on the road close by.

So a couple of little annoyances tonight.

I leave a roll of paper towels in the car. You can't check the oil with a towel you want to keep. I don't know how they ended up in there, but it's damned useful. Won't keep you warm if you get stuck in a blizzard though.

Oh and I put the coupons in my shirt pocket as I decide they'll be useful. I put my store-spy card there too, so I don't forget them. The cashier always reminds me about the card. I guess I look stupid when I pull out a wad of crumpled paper, but I don't forget my coupons.

(Women's clothing is stupid, there are no shirt pockets. Did you know women buy jeans with no back pockets? Where do they put their electronic keycards?)

Like a good hitchhiker, always carry a towel :)
