I don't know if the universe is being particularly irritating this week, or if I'm just particularly irritable, but either way...Calgon, take me away! Gah.
There was one good thing--I got my hair recut Tuesday evening and I love it. And he didn't charge me. So that's a very good thing. Aside from that, though...I've got nothing on the good front.
Not that this week has been BAD, particularly, just...irritating. Aggravating. Filled with stupid, stupid people. Is it just me, or are people (and by people I mean the general public, not my particular friends, "real" or "internet") just getting dumber? Seriously, all week I've been getting my face shoved into other people's dimwittedness....my customers, my vendors, random people in the streets. I seriously wonder how some of these people a) keep their jobs, and b) live their daily lives. (Of course, as soon as I typed that one of my customers called and made me laugh out loud by saying "Oh my god, between the Ambien and the ADHD, I'm so scattered I might as well just be sitting around smokin' a big old joint." So they're not ALL bad. Hee.) And why must they involve me in their daily lives? Going home for lunch earlier, I had to sit an an intersection while an unattractive, badly-dressed couple with questionable hygiene leisurely crossed the road in front of me, and slowed down to make out right in front of my car! Obviously they were trying to get some sort of reaction from me, but I just waited until there was enough room to go around them. Gah. I'm not saying dirty, badly-dressed people don't have the right to stroll hand-in-hand wherever they want, but I don't want to watch the dirty, badly-dressed PDA, damn it! (Would I be any more tolerant of attractive, well-dressed people in that situation? Actually, no. Not today, certainly!) Get a room. Or, you know, anywhere that's not the MIDDLE OF THE FUCKING STREET.
Has it been any less irritating at home? No, no it has not. Some cat decided to pee "outside the box" this morning. Now, I'm all for innovative thinking, but not in my cats! Gah. Speaking of cats, they're having a lovely spring molting, I guess, and there are cat hair tumbleweeds everywhere. Gah. Yesterday I opened my cable bill and discovered the cable company has decided to raise rates (without improving offerings or service, of course) AGAIN. I'm going to have to shop around for other options--any opinions on Dish or DirecTV? Gah, gah. My yard needs mowed. It's only March! I'm not ready for lawn maintenance yet. What happened to spring? I woke up last night sweating, and I don't think it's menopause. I'm sure of it, actually, since Aunt Flo also showed up last night, bless her crampy, crampy little heart. More gah. I have a headache, which doesn't seem possible, given the amount of Aleve I've taken to appease Aunt Flo, but nonetheless, I do. I filled my car's gas tank last night and, for the first time EVER, paid $25 to fill my tiny little tank. Aaaaarrrrrggggghhhhh!
Okay, I'll stop whining now. I've got performances to do this weekend, and though I'm having trouble generating any enthusiasm about that prospect right this moment, I'm sure once I'm at the theater that I will be rarin' to go. Tomorrow's Friday, thank god. And next week will surely be better, right?
