    I had what my granny terms an "old fart moment" a few days ago, and I'm only 27. I was in the car with my nine year old niece, who was prattling on abt her latest boy band obsession. Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" came on the radio and I started singing my guts out. The song finished and I hear this from the backseat: "Oh, that's a great song! Is that new band?"
    I gave her a quick rundown of when Queen was and why they aren't making more, then introduced her (via my mp3 player phone) to Pink Floyd, ZZ Top, Styx, and Boston before I dropped her off.

    Goddamnit. My brain is shit today. There is a twitch in my face that won't stop. I am anxious as all get out. I am in escape mode and desperate to get somewhere I feel safe.

    I managed to stumble over a broken tree branch while walking my dogs and pulled a lower back muscle on the awkward landing. GRRRR.

    My gripe today is:
    My rich, pretentious prick of a boss.
    He can't even get his own coffee - he says "why should I have to get up when i can pay someone to do it for me?"
    The man drives a purple porsche.
    Everything is about status.....
    here's the funny part, he kept a classic car in his garage, and decided he was going to sell it, a man came by & made him an offer "cash" he took 4k less than what he posted it for, it now sits in my husbands garage because the man who bought it has had to have work done to it. My Husband will make $ on something the boss could've made more $ on if he didn't just buy stuff to show off and didn't know how to care for it, and didn't take people for granted thinking they were stupid. *evil laugh*
    Pretentious prick.

    We're just a couple of average looking dorks who try and enjoy the small things.
    I figure, when you add it all up... those small things cover a LOT more of life than the "big moments" most people wait for.

    went to Safeway/Vons today to get some paper products. While I was there, also picked up condiments I can't find at Whole Foods--Worchestershire sauce and Frank's Red Hot. Also needed some sweet relish for a recipe, so I find the pickles and relish. I picked up a jar of sweet relish, flip it over--Corn syrup. OH YEAH, this is why i dont buy stuff at the regular grocery store. Pick up another jar...HFCS. another--HFCS............AND ANOTHER----H........F...........C........S!!!!!!!!! ARGH! seriously? ALL of the sweet relishes with HFCS? NOT EVEN SUGAR?!?!?!?!
