I have a good life, yes. I have very little reason to complain about little things, also yes. Sometimes it’s not enough to tell myself that there are so many good things. Sometimes I just have to get the less good things out. I welcome you to do the same in the comments.
In no particular order:
*In the past several months Kiehl’s has discontinued my cleanser and moisturizer. While I wouldn’t say that I have AMAZING skin while using these products, they certainly keep my skin from completely losing it’s mind. I’m testing a few new things out, and my fingers are crossed, but I’m not overly optimistic yet.
*For the first time in eight years, there is security stationed outside of my bank. Today they told me they’ve been robbed twice recently, by the same person who has yet to be caught. He has a cutesy nickname (think The Wet Bandits from Home Alone) and a little research tells me he’s one of the ten most wanted bank robbers in Southern California.
*Gas was $4.45 today.
*At the gas station someone was smoking a cigarette directly next to the pump. Have I entered an alternate reality where gasoline mixed with fire does not equal bad news?
*We’ve started going to a new vet who is OUTRAGEOUSLY expensive. Our old vet was wonderful, and thorough and totally reasonably priced. I say that knowing that I once paid $500 to have a hairball removed from my cat’s throat. Sometimes pets are expensive, and I accept that. But this vet, HOO BOY. They won’t do more than one vaccination at once for fear of a reaction, when I’m certain that he’s received multiple vaccinations at once in the past. Also, they charge for an office visit ($60!) each time he needs a vaccine, and the vet does actually come and check him out, all the while I’m thinking that we were JUST HERE two weeks ago, REMEMBER? When you wouldn’t just give him two shots in the same visit? They are also painfully slow, and it isn’t because they’re busy. I have yet to be there when we weren’t the only people in the office. They’re new, and perhaps they just haven’t gotten their act together, so I’m giving them the benefit of the doubt. I’m also lazy, and switching vets would require me to call them and ask them to send our records over to a new vet, which I would have to actually go and FIND MYSELF, and they won’t be conveniently located just three minutes from my house.
*Draw Something, my beloved Draw Something, is starting to annoy me greatly. The word repeats are insane. As I have zero knowledge about app writing, I could be wrong, but shouldn’t there be a way to eliminate a word from my personal word bank once it’s been used? How can we make this happen? I mean, if my iPhone can tell me what song is playing in a restaurant, surely we can work on this flaw in an otherwise delightful game. (Pro tip: Drawing via iPad makes your drawings resemble something created in an insane asylum ever so slightly less.)
Well, that was therapeutic. Tomorrow I promise to come back with all of the things that are really great right now. Until then, join me in whining, won’t you?
