    Yeah, someone's BO has never given me an allergy-induced asthma attack....people just ought to be sensible enough not to douse themselves in fragrances. Pretty bad when you need to leave a store because someone is wearing so much crap that you can't breathe....and it permeates each aisle. The other day I was in line at the pharmacy and a woman in front of me grabbed a cologne tester and not only doused herself...she sprayed me right in the face with the crap.

    No sleep! Not one lousy hour. I hate insomnia.

    Hard cider seems to be making a comeback here. There are 2 ciderworks in Virginia - Albemarle Ciderworks Albemarle CiderWorks and Foggy Ridge Foggy Ridge Cider: Welcome - there may be others, but these are the only ones I'm familiar with. I have had the cider from Albemarle and it's good. Then we have Woodchuck Cider, which I like. According to cider history, John Adams used to drink a tankard at breakfast.

And yes, you can be called back but it would be for a different case and then the process starts all over again.
    Where I live they use drivers licenses for the jury pool. So if you're a driver, you can get called. Last time I misplaced my summons and had to call and I found out that my pool had already been unused. So then you're off for a year.

    I was supposed to receive something rather critical (a job offer) by FedEx on Saturday. Either the mailing party forgot to note it for Saturday delivery, or FedEx flubbed it. There's a drug test in there I need to take. That's kinda time sensitive...

    GotD: Period. UTI.Gave into sugar cravings and had ice cream, a biiig bar of caramel and a cherry coke all in one night. NO motivation to exercise right now and, AND I have 2 to my name, whilst needing 240 to pay back my mum and spay/neuter a pair of rabbits. Why does everything happen at once?!

    I wonder why I'm just dying for a bit of JD right now. Or a lot. A lot definately sounds better. -_-

    My gripe to day is being in a perfectly good mood when I headed to the gym, starting my workout and my brain just goin' Blah. All of a sudden I just wasn't into it, almost felt like crying for no reason and basically had to slog through the workout even though I felt fine physically. I hate that. Proper application of caffeine, friends and internet is slowly fixing it.

    My gripe today is that my car came with an overly complicated connector which claims I can play songs from my iPod, but whenever I try, sound does not come out.
