It's gray, cold, and raining.
My motivation is hovering somewhere near zero.
You know you've hit the bottom of the barrel when you're too lazy to take something off the P.I.T.S. list. If I were hungry right now, I'd be begging someone to feed me. It's a damn good thing I don't have to use the bathroom. So please, enjoy some random things that took absolutely no effort to write.
1. Thanks to the wonderful and talented Mike Y, Pickled Beef now has an icon attached to it! To see it, save this site in your favorites. A little "Tink" should show up next to the URL.
2. I spent the whole afternoon calling insurance agencies, two of which never picked up. One hung up on me. Another promised to call back, and didn't. The last one will be faxing me an estimate by tomorrow. "Are we there yet?!"
3. There is no 3. This list just looked naked without it.
Dream Replay: As Hoop and I were folding clothes, I reached across to grab a shirt and accidentally shook a ring loose from its folds. It bounced off the table and landed on the floor between us. I glanced at it and then back at Hoop. He ignored the situation entirely, too engrossed in the shirt he was folding. Suddenly, anger flared up inside my head. "I'm not going to accept that unless he asks me properly!" I thought. So I disregarded it, for what felt like hours, until the curiosity built up. As I reached down to snatch the ring from the floor, I realized what it really was... A rubber ring from the inside of a scuba mask. Huh.
Around The Water Cooler:
Account Rep: Hi, Ms. Erbell?
Tink: That's correct.
Account Rep: I'm calling you for price information on the Kawhoes.
Tink: Price information on what?
Account Rep: Kawhoes.
Tink: Uh... We don't have a product by that name.
Account Rep: Yes you do. I'm looking at it right now.
Tink: Could you spell that for me?
Account Rep: C.H.A.O.S.
Tink: *Slaps forehead*
