Another LJ whatta day

Although I waited until the very last minute possible, I accomplished a ton of my goals, leaving very little to do for Adele's arrival. Weee! Thank GOD. I dunno what's up with my leetle friend's list, but no one's really yappin' today, or there's nothing to 'read.' Whassup wit you guys?! Er, *I* should complain, since I've not contributed much, either. It's just been one of those days.

Good Year extortion
Wahahahahaha. Mkay, perhaps my cutline is a wee bit unfair, but let's face it -- if we bat our eyes, look halfway decent and make guys laugh, we can pretty much call the shots on...well, everything.

The doughnut dilemma solved
So when I first had the blowout, I called EVERYWHERE to find just ONE good deal on a tire for that freakin' car. NO ONE could go under $70...and that was ONLY for the TIRE. $70 was rock-bottom, Sam's Discount Club bottom-shelf Miata tire. :/ Since I was feeling all empowered today, despite YESTERDAY, I WENT to Good Year. I honed in on the manager, started smiling, joking (and ya know, I can't help it if my jeans were a lil tight, and my shirt um...cool). Good Year was the most expensive route to go.

On the PHONE.

So I was all cozying up in conversation, and said something like "well, if it's more than $10, you're gonna KILL me..." and he started going through the computer (while I flattered him/them on their advertising campaign...heh), searching for tires, and finally said that he would only put his best tire for my car on it; and the total (for a top-shelf tire, rotation, balancing and everything)? $74. OMG. I got that tire FREE. Wahahahah. Mkay, so maybe I do feel a little guilty. But still...I couldn't just buy a tire at Sears that inexpensive, much less have them mount, balance and rotate. Heh. Girlllllllll power, baybay. It's still the name of the game. And I figure it all evens out, since men traditionally make higher salaries for doing the sameeee jobs. Yeah. Something like that. Plus, there were about 572895489789 cars all parked with the Good Year thing in the windshields waiting on their turns. It took them five minutes to take care of me :-D YEAH YEAH. I do feel slightly guilty. But um...not THAT MUCH.

Sometimes, it IS good to be a girl. :)

The rest of today
So I've gotta get out of the driving slow habit, now that the funmobile is out and about again. :-D I had to go through MOM TRAFFIC HELLLLLLo to pick Adele up, and will go through carpool tomorrow. WEEEEEEEE. MOM MOBILES. THE JOY. *cough* Just since her vacation, she looks so much older. It's frightening. She was wearing this thick thread around her neck and wrist. I told her she looked like a newspaper, and she was all "MmmmoooooooooooooooMMMMMMMMmmmmmmmm! This is in, gah!" *blink* Mkay. Wearing a string that belongs around a newspaper is the "in" thing. I missed the memo. Heh. Up until this moment, we've been excitedly yapping about everything. Twas beautiful. Mkay, I swore not to go on and on about her anymore. But still. :-D SO PROUD.

Jetted by Krippy Kreme, and dove into the box. OMG IT WAS SO HOT it burnt my FINGERS. OWWWWWWWWWWWW. Yessss, I ate TWO...COUNT 'EM...TWOOOOO krippy kremes out of my new paranoia, and am trying to think of what sounds good for dinner. Err...here we go. Again. My fingertips are all numb from snatching that overheated doughnut out of the box too quickly. I think underneath the first layer of skin there is sugar. That's great.

Pinched nerve
:( :( :( It's getting worse. Not better. Plus, no relief in sight. At ALL. It's making me nervous, and I feel like it's affecting my posture, bone structure...everything. My whole arm goes numb frequently and this scares me. But the worst is the pain. GOD. Just TWO HOURS OF NO PAIN AND I'LL BE HAPPY. PLEASE??????????? I try to ignore it while working, but it's ALWAYS there, tapping me on the shoulder, brutally reminding me that not only is it still there, but there in a bigger way. Need. Chiro. Or. Ortho. BAD. Blah.

MKKKKKKKAY THAT DOES IT. Adele just sached into my room and immediately went for my closet, taking an armful of clothes with her. Time to scrap...heh. She's gonna git it. HOW DARE?

Yeah, yeah. That is all.

You need Mr. Spock to give you a Vulcan neck pinch and negate the pinched nerve that you have now...

"wow, she's got some nerve!"
"yes she does, and right now it hurts"...

GrrRRRrr. Not funnayyyyy!

Aug. 19th, 2004 03:30 pm (UTC)
you go grrl!!!!!!!!

good deal on the tire, I don't do that stuff, I seriously just can't. It's not a facet I can accentuate (though I wish I could lemme tell ya!)

So glad Adele is there :>:>:>

And hot Krisy Kreme? I've never had them hot, just room temp and I prefer them once they are a day old or so for some reason...

No postys for me since I was at Mom's and then with Mom at Mom's all day :>:>:>

Re: :>
I kinna feel a lil guilty about using the womanly wiles on the poor, defenseless Good Year manager. NOTTTTTTTTT. Hahahah.

I read about your mom. I CERTAINLY hope she gets in-house hospice/a nurse to watch after her. I have a very similar story about my uncle (who's now deceased) and the VERY DIFFICULT time our WHOLE FAMILY had taking care of him, even though we tooks turns :/ You can't do it alone. Well, you could, but you'd totally have no life :I Please take care of yourself.

And OMG!!! Hot Krispy Kremes -- right off the turnstile -- are AWESOME. It's like eating sugar air :-D Yummmmmmmmmmmay. :-D

Yash, I'm ECSTATIC with Adele here :-D We've been talking about serious schtuff. Always a good thing :) Gotta keep those lines of communication open :)

Check you out all working it with your fine self at the Goodyear dealer. ;) I'm glad your girl is home. :)
Aug. 20th, 2004 09:23 am (UTC)
Hahahha! I took no prisoners (plus, let's face it...I'm BROKKKKKKKKKE). I'm glad she is, too :)

If you've got it, flaunt it, especially if it gets you a hook-up, right?
Aug. 20th, 2004 09:43 am (UTC)
I don't think I was flirting per se, but being funnnnayyy. :-D
Aug. 20th, 2004 09:44 am (UTC)
I wouldn't consider wearing an outfit that shows off your assets to their best advantage flirting. You were simply engaging in polite conversation.
Aug. 20th, 2004 09:45 am (UTC)
Errrrrrr...I'm thinking my "assets" prove that I'm an anorexic. Gah. Of course, I still got 'back'. LOL :) And I didn't priss in there, either. I walk confidently (sorta like a man). So thar :P
Aug. 20th, 2004 11:16 am (UTC)
I'll be the judge of your "assets," thank you. *wink* (It's all about havin' some "back.")
Aug. 20th, 2004 11:16 am (UTC)
ENABLER!!!! *points accusingly*
Aug. 20th, 2004 01:30 pm (UTC)
And that would be a bad thing in this case because...?
Aug. 20th, 2004 01:51 pm (UTC)
Because I desperately need to gain weight!! :P
Aug. 20th, 2004 03:16 pm (UTC)
Yeah, so telling you that having some "back" is a good thing would in theory encourage you to move in pursuit of more of same, would it not? Thus encouraging more munchies and such?
Aug. 20th, 2004 03:45 pm (UTC)
Nay; I need to eat more, but not junk out. Grrrrr. I'm not knowing if it'll all end up in the back...hahahaha. :-D
Aug. 21st, 2004 08:33 am (UTC)
hahaha True.

Eye see, Open your eyes
Creeping Through The Cellar Door

Latest Month

June 2019


Here is Belladonna, the Lady of the Rocks,
The lady of situations.
Here is the man with three staves, and here the Wheel,
And here is the one-eyed merchant, and this card
Which is blank, is something that he carries on his back,
Which I am forbidden to see. I do not find
The Hanged Man. Fear death by water.
I see crowds of people, walking round in a ring.
Thank you. If you see dear Mrs. Equitone,
Tell her I bring the horoscope myself;

One must be so careful these days.
