not only do they give you loads of free samples every time you purchase something BUT i bought a mouisurizer there that gave me some terrible allergic reaction & they kindly returned it (no receipt) AND offered to pay for a doctor's visit for me. when i declined, they gave me free products. now that's a company that puts the care in 'customer care'.
at least he doesn't have to worry about packing away the duct tape, now that we've been reduced to a 'yellow' level.
i'm thinking about dressing solely in the color of the current threat of terrorism. all red one day, all yellow the next. i think it makes a lovely political statement.
fyi- i tried to get the motherfuckinggoddamnpieceofshit comment section working for hours last night. apparently i'm not meant to have a comments section. anyhoo- i'll work on it more when my anger has subsided.

it reminded me of the time my car battery died & i got someone to help me jump it. he was trying to jump it but nothing was happenening with my car- it still wouldn't start. i realized suddenly that it was in drive instead of park. i had never had an automatic before & honestly didn't know it had to be in drive to start.
maybe i'm just not bright enough for car ownership.
phew- i found my glasses, underneath the couch. the world is clear again.

so is it bad that i detoured away from the peace march to go buy face wash at LUSH? i march for peace, i march for cleanliness.

in juxtaposition, a neighbor was across the street, picking up trash & sweeping the sidewalk. i heart urban life.

i remember once when i was dating this guy, he called me some term of endearment (honey, baby, sweetie, i don't remember). what i do remember is asking him NOT to call me that & he asked how he should address me & with a straight face, i replied "bitchass".
i'm in my late 20's & none of my friends are ever up before 10 am. isn't that strange? when do people start getting up at a normal hour?

try dancing in your living room to Dolly Parton's '9 to 5'. try making up a dance routine to it, where you start by lying on the couch, to empasize the beginning of the song, "stumble out of bed, and i tumble to the kitchen". JUST TRY BEING THAT BIG OF A DORK!
and call me, cause we could get together & do dance routines.

i fell asleep at 8:00 tonight. the lovely beau woke me up at 9. now, i do love to sleep but there are some things you just can't do asleep. watching west wing is one of those things & i'm proud to say i got up & viewed. it's important, you know, to keep up on your programs.
speaking of which, i thought j. millionaire would be over this week. alas, this week's epidode was a complete waste of air time & my time. this is the LAST reality tv show i'm watching (minus the dating shows my bro is a regular on). when will they end? who thought this was a good idea anyway?
on this note, the best reality tv show is one that never gets any press- it's bug juice- it airs on the disney channel during the summer. real-life adventures of kids at camp. ooooooohhhh, it's great! now i can't wait for summer.

The remainder of this emotionally relieving day was spent at work, doing more & more copying. I decided to time how long it took to copy merely one bill for the year- the phone bills. One hour & 10 min., in case you were wondering. I cannot believe what a waste of my time my life can seem at moments. Alas, only a few months left of this life & everything will change once again. It's hard to believe how many times this happens in life.
I saw 'The Hours' tonight. Please go see it- it is the ONLY movie i've ever seen that is better than the book.
Life is better with books, and I'm off to read some before i fall asleep. wish me the best of luck with my emdr session tomorrow. i'll let you know how it goes. g' night.
i've spent so much time lately worrying about a friend who has gotten herself into a low-down situation. i talk to her family several times a day, but am having no luck with her. it makes me so sad, because i can see her face at eight years old, and thirteen, and eighteen, and twenty-three and i'm afraid i won't see her face again.
i'm good at a positive spin.
today at work i realized i had been making a big mistake about a team's name for the last year and a half. apparently, it's NOT the 'blue balls' but the 'blue bulls'. i honestly didn't know & figured it is rugby- who knows?
in case you're wondering, the usps is still hard at work. i got an envelope from them at work today & when i opened it, there was half an envelope with half a piece of paper inside, looking very much like a dog & a postman had had a run-in. the usps was kind enough to include a 'WE CARE' letter inside, letting me know that something was supposed to get to me, but didn't. alas, we figured out it was from the accountant & i rung him up to let him know. i said 'did you send us a letter on jan. 31st?' to which he replied 'yes, but i got half of it back in the mail yesterday'. apparently we got the side that had our address on it & he got the side that had his return address. damn, those folks at the usps work hard for $.37.
enjoy the sunshine.
any-hoo, this is what i'm talking about when i say i don't have much going on in my life. i kid you not, this is really the highlight of my day (unless my lovely beau gets home tonight in time to snuggle with me).
on my mind today:
i need a new car. let me list just a few of the current issues we're contending with:
*drivers side door busted- have to get in through the passenger side
*passenger sun visor gone
*driver's seat losing cushion at an alarming rate
*hatchback leaks. many things are moldy
*seatbelt does not extend to full length- must suck in stomach while driving.
*brakes appear to be shot
*making all sorts of bizarre & scary noises while it runs
well, what can you do? she must hold on for just a few more months. will she make it? check back for details.
also, my job is mind-numbingly boring, so it will give me something to do to kill the time (you know, before starting that big copy "project").
on my mind today:
1. i should offer to hang out with my new neighbor's dog when she's gone. they're sweeties.
2. how to curb my obsession for greek strained yogurt with honey so it can become an affordable indulgence, rather than an expensive and secret habit, where i'm scarfing down yogurt in the car immediately following purchasing.
there's a lot more on my mind, but i don't want to give it all up on the first date. until tomorrow...
