Too Close to Call

Being St Patrick's Day, one would assume there would be good luck floating about galore - and if any good luck was running low, Mr Leprechaun would send some more down to earth (just cuz he is so darn happy he found a pot of gold and all). Howwwevverrr, if you thought that, you would be wrong. Maybe there is alot of good luck dust floating around in the air, but lil ole moi is either not getting any of it or I melt it to smithereens with my body - since it eeks of bad luck obviously. The good luck dust melts away like a snowflake, and I am left with utter frustration. I am *not* being dramatic (ok, well maybe a little), but I am serious that this day has been a frustrating one. Let me give you all a few examples:

UNCOOL: Waking up at 8 A, when you have to be at work AT 8 AM. Not finding your purse, which has the cell phone that was supposed to wake your lame a$$ up, find said purse in vehicle after running outside in PJs with serious bed head.
COOL: Calling in to tell your supervisor you *just* woke up and that you would be late and have her laugh and say, 'ok, we will see when you get here dear'.

UNCOOL: Driving into work and having a minivan go the EXACT SAME SPEED in the fast lane as the truck in the slow lane was and making it impossible to get around and down the road.
COOL: Noticing said truck had a sign that asked 'How am I driving'? Which makes me think to myself, 'pretty good, altho the guy next to you is bein' a dumba$$' - which therefore manages to amuse me until I *can* get around them.

UNCOOL: Printing off 15 page case anaylises for my Business Law class (err, EACH - making a the total amount of trees I killed in the process enuf to make me ashamed). Only to find out when I got home that there was a synopsis for each case in my textbook all along.
COOL: Noticing the teacher has given me all my points on my last 2 case anaylses homework assignments.

UNCOOL: Going to Beauty Brands to get some cosmetic stuff. Husband comes into store from shopping at AT&T and I decide I better try out the 'Happy Heart' massager I was thinking about buying. Ask husband to come here, wanna try something and ask him to turn around. Bring hand up and promptly fling massager past my husband and onto the floor a few feet away.
COOL: Managed not to break massager and did end up buying it and also managed to get husband to give me a short massage with it tonight.

UNCOOL: Going to Legends area to go to the Irish place we thought was still there to eat - see that its called something really uncool like 'Grannies sumpin or da other'. Head somewhere else, husband gets work phone call which takes FOREVERRR. Head to Mexican place where husband asks to have us put in the 'fun' area. We are sat by the window (which is open), and are barely able to see the menus cuz of the glaring sun. Waiter is slow to take our orders, and then seems VERY anxious to clear our table once he finally does. Either he is trying to give us a hint, or he was previously cleaning tables and old habits die hard.
COOL: I did have a very yummy eroticolada drink that helped me not sweat so much - despite the glaring sun.

OK, I am done.....better start on that Business Law assignment and squeeze in some time for drawing, so that the trees didnt have to die for nothing lol

In Florida:

• Women may be fined for falling asleep under a hair dryer, as can the salon owner.
• Men may not be seen publicly in any kind of strapless gown.

Just thought you might like to know – especially the last one lol

Have you ever wondered about Smurfette? Have you ever cared? lol Am I showing my age? =) As I was growing up, we only had about 3 channels on our TV to choose from for cartoons on a Saturday morning, and one of those had the Smurfs on them. I grew up admiring Smurfette's bravery - cuz what gal would want to be surrounded by a gadzillion guys? OK, scratch the floozy gals, I am talking about any 'normal' gal. Altho, make it duly noted that Smurfette wasnt 'normal', as her skin was colored blue and all.....

I did Wikipedia Smurfette, and have decided that Wikipedia is now my new best friend instead of Google - as I got LOTS of info on Smurfette =) I was a little insulted to learn Smurfette was initially created to cause trouble amongst the Smurfs, altho it makes us women seem quite powerful I guess. I honestly wonder how messed up on drugs someone would have to be to create little (not more than 3 apples tall according to Wikipedia lol) blue dudes with tails and white pointy hats who run around in an unnamed forest. I have never done drugs, altho I *have* gotten quite drunk a few times - but never do I see blue dudes.

Altho, I guess I barely see the sidewalk when I am walking down it drunk either lol
