Irritatedly Feverish

I have some gripes about some things. And a frustrated update. Oh my, here we go.

I had a fever all day at work yesterday. No, I didn't take my temperature, but this was for sure. I felt decent aside from that, but my face was a million degrees. I was so red and puffy, and I came home completely exhausted. It was just one of those times where you know you have a fever. I don't know why I had it and I don't feel like I have one anymore, so I don't think I'm sick. I guess my body did a good job for once and actually burned up the germs before they attacked me. No complaints there, I guess.

I'm angry that the gas prices are going down. Yes, I'm one of "those" people. I wish gas was $10/gallon, because then someone would actually DO something about finding alternative means of fueling transportation. Sure, I'd either be broke or not able to leave the house, but only for a brief time. Someone would find a way, I know it. But they won't find a way if people are content with the gas prices. I want an electric car that is practical. We can generate electricity in any number of ways without destroying the planet. Why do we settle for less?? Oh wait I know - it's because people like convenience and moola. And I don't blame the general public, just the gas companies. Blah I don't know anything, ignore me. I'm sure I'd be singing a different tune if gas actually was $10/gallon.

Next is Walmart. ARRRGGGGHHHH! Last night it took me two hours to get home from work because I needed to pick up a few simple items from the local Walmart. You know - shampoo, toothpaste, pasta....the basics. But what I ran into were a bunch of inconsiderate rednecks who could care less about any other human beings on the face of the earth. They cut me off at every turn, stood in front of every single item I needed, slowed down when they knew someone was behind them, and yelled obscenities for fun. Not only that, but Walmart has ever so cleverly begun it's holiday marketing schemes and I couldn't get away from the Christmas trees and ornaments and ribbons and gift promotions wherever I went. I may not even go there again until next year to prevent the super-chain from ruining my favorite holiday.

In other (happy) news, we got our Christmas cards delivered yesterday, and I think they're wonderful. I can't wait to send them out next month.

No one at work even commented on my hair yesterday, which leads me to believe that it's ugly and no one wanted to hurt my feelings.

Ok....so maybe I am a little sick because I'm never this cranky and irritated. Oh well. Let's pretend this post never happened, shall we? mm-K. Thanks.

Your hair looks good. Don't let anyone tell you any different.

WalMart sucks. It's great because it almost always has the best prices, but it sucks.
