driving me crazy

Oh, and to the bitch who was driving in front of me today: Those lines on the road? They're the LAW, they're not GUIDELINES you can choose to follow or not to follow! So yeah, maybe next time you might want to try driving in ONE lane at a time, hmm? Geez, it's a miracle that you managed to pass kindergarten coloring!

Phew. Glad I got that off my chest.

funny things that happened today

me to my mom (holding up a bottle of laundry detergent) : Is this All?
my mom: Yeah, that’s All i had to give you.
me (leaving) : Thanks for giving me your All!

Man, i love puns.

Also, an awesome joke from Marsha:
(please don’t be offended if you’re Polish!)
Q: what does a Polish man give to his wife on their wedding night that is long & hard?
A: a last name!
Ahahahahaha I was literally rolling on the floor with tears in my eyes after that one.

Also, I'm driving down route 64, almost home, when the car in front of me slows almost to a halt at a blinking yellow light. I look past him, and realize that there’s a guy STOPPED at the light – apparently he was waiting for the light to change to green. Man, he would have had to wait a long time! Hahaha. Yeah, that one killed me, too. Got a good smile & a chuckle outta me as I continued home.

And lastly, Mad Libs with Dave & Marsha – awesome. All I have to say is that cupid has a pair of strap-ons on his back (not sheep!), and that Dave is the God of Labia. Interpret it as you will.

P.S. Another awesome joke that I heard ages ago, but that still consistently makes me laugh is:
A pirate walks into a bar, with a steering wheel sticking half out of his pants. He goes up to the bar and orders a drink. The bartender, curious, eyes the pirate’s pants and says “Hey, what’s with the steering wheel?” The pirate answers “ARRR! It’s drivin’ me nuts!”

i believe in you

Lucid Mike put this song on one of his awesome compilation tapes for me, and it makes me cry EVERY TIME I hear it:

I can see that you're discouraged
Like you think that it's never ever gonna change
And maybe I'm to blame
There's not a whole lot I can do now
Though I should have seen it coming when I saw you go
But I want you to know
There's nothing wrong with you
You just need to follow through
On the things you set out to do
Long ago
It sounds odd to come from me
And I can fake sincerity
As well as anybody can
But that's not what I'm doing
This time

And I don't really know the best way to convey it
I'm just gonna say it
I believe in you

I think about it so often
The little things that I could have done differently
If I'd known what they'd be
I don't know why it suprised me
I should have seen where it was going
When you came apart
But there's nothing wrong with you
You just never made it through
All the things that were done to you
Long ago

I hope you realize
How you figure in my eyes
And how much worse the world would be
If there wasn't anything like you in it
And how you're someone well worth knowing
I hope you keep on going
I believe in you

I know you're lonely
And you don't really understand why
Things haven't worked out as you planned
Long ago

But you will find your way
And I'll run into you one day
And you'll tell me that you're OK
And all about the tremendous things you've done
And how you've won the day
And where you plan to take it
I think you're gonna make it
I believe in you

the hostess without the mostess...

so i feel awful. i’m generally just in an awful mood, but my stomach just feels terrible, too. i came home from work today, pissed off at my sister (who was visiting) from the minute i walked in the door. it was mostly due to a feeling of general shittiness, but i also couldn’t help feeling like my toes were being stepped on, a bit – i had had 4 different people stay over my house in the span of one week! it’s been insane, and i guess it has made me realized how much i appreciate (and miss!) my down time, my time to myself. i mean, Mike doesn’t count as “company” per se because he doesn’t get in my way, he just sleeps till forever. not that the others were getting in my way! i just feel more of the need to play hostess – make sure they are comfortable & happy – which i hate because it gets me all stressed. which it shouldn’t! i should be enjoying visits, and for the most part, i DO. i just...gah. it’s NOT that i didn’t have fun with Marsha, Josh, & Sarah – in fact, it’s the complete *opposite* - i loved having them! but something inside of me seems to recoil a little bit when i can’t get a second alone, to breathe, to think about me instead of constantly being concerned about my guest. =\ gah.

what is *wrong* with me??

ack! bad morning at work! the guys that are building the handicapped ramp outside of the beauty salon next door – *bless them* - came to ask me if they could use one of our outlets because the woman who runs the beauty shop (where they usually plug in) was out of town due to a family death. so i let them in to our place, thinking that should be okay (everyone whose decision i would defer to was out of the office!), and it WAS okay until

[10.20.04 - I wonder what happened to the rest of that entry. Huh.]
