Oh yeah, and...

Also, my contact got so jacked up this afternoon that I was seeing triple on the power point presentations in class, so I finally just pulled it out of my eye and threw it on the ground. Nice depth perception for the rest of the day, let me tell ya.

But it could always be worse. A girl in one of my classes got hit by a car Monday. Her body. His car. POW! She got HIT by a CAR. Be careful crossing the street, man. She is relatively fine- bruised, sore, a few stitches in her chin, and waaaaay loopy on pain meds (and she's pretty damned dingy to begin with), but no broken bones or anything serious.

Oh, and I had chicken fried steak for lunch that wasn't too shabby. CFS, garlic mashed potatoes (2 HUGE scoops with cream gravy), sauteed mushrooms and onions, toast, and a drink... for $4.95! I may have to make Cain & Abel's a lunch spot for school days. For the same price as a craptastic fast-food meal in the Union, I can walk a few blocks and get actual food... even a beer if I so fancy.

YotL, huh?

So the past few days have not been kind to me.

It started Sunday morning. I woke up to ice and nastiness outside, as expected, but I had another surprise. A flat tire. Turns out it was slashed. Nice. Thank goodness my neighbor's boyfriend (and she also got her tire slashed) was there and offered to change the flat for me. I managed to only be 50 minutes late to work, after detouring around a marathon being run near work (crazy fuckers, running when it's 30 degrees outside). I brought dinner home from work for my neighbor and her boyfriend as thanks, for those of you keeping track.

On Monday, I was supposed to get off of work at 4p, but the girl who was going to come in at 4 never showed. So, being the nice person I am, I said I would stay until close. I got home after 9p, and my dog had crapped and peed on the floor. Nice. I then had to clean that up and stay up late finishing homework that was due today.

Speaking of homework that was due today, I had a photography assignment due at 6:30 tonight that I didn't finish until yesterday. I went to drop the film off to be processed... turns out I somehow managed to buy a type of slide film that is only developed in 3 places in the WORLD, and only one in North America. So I have to find out how long it will take if I mail it in to the place in Kansas. If it's too long according to my professor, then I'll have to re-shoot the entire damned assignment.

I was almost late to that photography class because I fell asleep in the Union. Somehow I woke up about 4 minutes before the class started, just enough time to power-walk over to the classroom so that I could explain to my T.A. why I didn't have an assignment to turn in.

Oh oh oh... and I don't get to have satellite TV installed tomorrow, either. I got that phone call yesterday. My apartment complex doesn't allow them to install the dish anywhere on the building, so the maintenance man told me I could rent a stand from the dish company or make one of my own. I made one with a bucket, a sack of concrete, and a metal pole, so I thought I was good to go. Turns out my complex won't allow the dish companies to ground the dish to an AC box or somesuch. So why the hell doesn't the complex just say NO SATELLITES instead of acting like they allow it, but with all these restrictions and caveats?? I just lost 50 effin dollars for the non-refundable deposit to save my place for installation. Bastards.

YotL... where are you??

Valentine's Day

Why is today sucking so much?

I've only been 'with' someone once on Valentine's Day, and that was kind of a failed bit. Other than that, every V-Day has just been another regular old day in my life.

So why am I having such a hard time today?

Maybe because I'm in a city away from most of my friends. I've made friends here, but none that are good friends, and none that I see (or have time to see) outside of work or school. I have absolutely less than zero prospects for dating, and I don't see any coming around anytime soon.

Don't mind me. I'm just moping on this day and thinking about all of the relationships that I've fucked up with my own stupidity and/or arrogance.

Someone pass me a Blizzard.
