gotta learn to look closely...
hmmm...isn't this interesting? um... remember my whining about
my replacement bank card NOT showing up? yes. i have been
growling about it for weeks now... blaming the bank, bitching
at the tellers.... all that lovely stuff...
stayed home from work today, first off, because i have another
dang cold...so i decided to - for some reason - give my apartment
a bit of a scrub down (okay, for me, it's picking up papers
and using the dust mop)
near the door i am picking up envelopes and one is semi-heavy
(postmarked jan 18) it's unmarked... generic if you will...something
that i shove to the back of the pile and focus on my bills
i open it before tossing it...
you see where this is headed? yeah, exactly, Sherlock... it's
the Debit Card. sitting there in all it's pale green glory
just waiting to be used....
happens ONE day after i get the SECOND replacement card...
i am a jerk.
least my apartment is clean.
i stayed home from work, as i said, and i am trying to clean
and watch t.v. and the construction guys are back in all their
glory... i think they must have bought a new sledgehammer
for groundhog's day... mother of gawd. excedrin anyone?
that's ok... i am washing dishes and have my stereo on...
looky there! all of a sudden the power goes out... "it'll
just be a minute, ma'am"
hours later, no t.v., no radio, candles burning throughout
my apartment, pillow over my head to squelch the banging -
the lights and everything comes back on.
MORE thing (because all i can do is complain right now since
i have the flu or something) i wanted a 'bit' of light in
my dark apartment whilst cleaning... so i opened my blinds...
zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzip...the first one is open...good good...
second blind - i must have pulled on too hard - because the
darned thing cracked in half and came crashing down, knocking
over a candle, splattering wax on my shin, and then fell on
was a double shot of nyQuil day, i must say....
that's RIGHT!!! i am out of nyQuil. darn.
