    • UGH! Why can't I ever get the motivation to get up at a decent time and get the things I need to do DONE. My schooling is going to take forever at this rate, because by the time I get up, have breakfast, and check my email/blogs, it's nearly time for my husband to come home from work! Why am I still so exhausted! I was told this would give me energy, but I still drag myself through the day.

      Seriously. I shouldn't have to sleep 11-12 hours a day just to feel like I've gotten any sleep!

      • I had to vote today (yet another special election) and they moved my polling place AGAIN. My GPS lied to me about how to get there, thank goodness I checked Google Maps before leaving the house.

        Then it took me an hour to get to work because no one in SoCal knows how to drive in the rain.

        In other news, apparently somebody forgot to pay the weather bill. It's been FREAKY here today!

          Oh man, don't get me started on bad rain drivers. It rains 300 days a year here, and everyone panics. Aren't you people used to this by now?!

              • What's the deal with (area name) drivers?!

                Seriously, let's just accept the fact that there are incredibly crappy drivers everywhere.

                  We get a dust storm every week or so (usually closer to twice a week.) High winds, skies the color of dirt, yadayadayada. It's reasonably easy to drive in a dust storm: maintain a speed where you can see in front of you, don't slam on your brakes, and for the love of nothing holy, steer to counter the wind and gusts. If you've lived here more than a month, you've learned how to drive in one. So why is it that everyone's main way of dealing with a dust storm is slam on the brakes down to 5 mph (on a highway where view allows for at least 70 mph) and let the wind blow you around both lanes of road.
                  Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

                      I would suspect that anybody doing that just can't handle driving faster -- in which case I'd say they'd better just drive ONLY as fast and as well as they can. Which is not well at all, but it beats driving even worse?...

                      That's what I keep telling myself when I'm driving behind some super-slow idiot, anyway... it doesn't work too well.

                      • It's the long weekend and I have nothing to do while the whole town is out camping in the beautiful wilderness. Goddammit. Someone Skype me. I am lonely.

                          • My gripe of the day:
                            I got nailed in a speed trap sting operation and got a speeding ticket.

                            What a crock. The motorcycle cop parks himself right at the crest of a bridge .... a bridge upon which one must accelerate to ascend. I was going along with the flow of traffic and, yes, was accelerating. I just happened to be the last in the line of about 8 cars. So he nails me, even though I was going no faster (or slower) than anybody else.

                            Here's the thing: the freaking ticket was $190. I figured it'd be $60 or somesuch .... especially considering I was going only 14 mph over the 30 mph limit. $190?! No school zone, no construction zone, no special circumstance. REALLY?!

                              Yeah, that would be great!

                              Maybe they calculated it based on you going almost 50% over the speed limit.

                                HAHA. Yeah, I just noticed that. It did look bad to me when I wrote it out.
