August Brick Wall
August 25 - I had to go to the bank this morning which in itself was annoying because I meant to do it yesterday, and when I get there there was no place on the street to park. This is only a problem because the parking lot at my bank is really small and hard to get in and out of. So anyway, right after I pull in this guy pulls up next to me in the biggest SUV I have ever seen and parks really badly. This probably wouldn't have been such a big deal except that it was so huge and parked so badly that there was no way I could pull out of the parking spot.
I decided to make the best of a bad situation so I walked up to a nearby store to buy a lotto ticket. The store was about three blocks away and when I got there I realized that I had left all my money in the car. Luckily, by the time I got back the stupid man and his stupid giant SUV where gone.
August 18 - I had my car fixed a while ago and something seemed strange so I had them check it and it turned out the parts they put in were defective so they had to put new parts in and they had my car for like the whole day. Then when I got it back it turned out there was something else wrong so I had to go back in and they had my car for another two hours. Plus the guy kinda talked down to me like I couldn't understand because it was about a car and I'm just a girl, so what would I know. I explained calmly that I know whatever it was wasn't my fault so they should probably fix it, so they did. Of course that was the one good thing, I know this isn't the place for it, but one tries to be fair, the car place took responsibility for everything so I didn't actually have to pay them any money. But it was annoying to not have transportation for a whole day.
August 11 - I had to go and run a bunch of errands on Friday, but I was supposed to meet someone at like 1:00. I thought no problem I'll just go online check the email and then run a few quick errands and be there in plenty of time. Uh not quite. First of all, the computer refused to log on. Sure it pretended to log on, but it wouldn't actually load the page. Plus my computer has to be restarted every time it won't go online because it freezes the program while I'm trying to shut it down. I'm sure this is somehow my fault, but I never seem to have time to figure out how to fix it. So instead of taking me a quick 15 minutes, this takes me an hour. Then I got to this store and get my stuff and when I go to check out there are two clerks and like ten people in each line. It took me almost 20 minutes to get out of there.
I managed to only be about 10 minutes late, but I had only managed to do half my errands and I was all annoyed because I felt like I had been rushing around all morning and had basically accomplished nothing.
August 4 - So I think it's cool and everything that my site is all around and stuff, but I've noticed kind of an annoying trend. Some of these sites say something like 'California woman SAYS she is running for governor to call attention to unemployment.' I may be a bit melodramatic, but it sounds like they think I have some secret nefarious plan. I say I'm running to bring attention to unemployment, but deep down I dream of taking over the state, the nation, the world (cue evil villain laugh). Uh that's not quite what I had in mind, but okay.
