Day in the Life

8:30 A.M. Oh, look, it’s the Hair Club! Yeah, whatever.
11:00 Why on earth did I set the alarm for 11?
11:37 Okay, it’s late enough to call work.
11:40 And Christy is being waaaaaay too perky. But at least I don’t have to go in.
11:42 All right, I’ll be good and get my flu shot. But I’m doing it in my pajamas.
11:46 Too cold for pajamas so I throw some Auburn pants on.
12:00 P.M. "Are you high risk?" Yes ma’am. So I don't look like the fifty-years-older crowd.
12:05 Listening to people talk of their ailments and call their husbands Dad...
12:15 "Don’t move, you’re bleeding." Apparently this makes me interesting.
12:20 It’s that time again- time to play Where’s Nettie’s Car?
12:35 Stupid Windows Media Player. Now I have to restart.
12:50 And now that I have the Internet’s gone out. So not in the mood to fix it.
1:35 Dang, my belt got broken. Suppose I shouldn’t throw it.
1:48 Internet back up.
3:00 Lunch. Cream of Wheat. Don't think I bothered with breakfast.
3:32 Finish kuru book.
4:02 "Your browser's cookie functionality is disabled." No. It. Isn't!
4:54 Impulse to do my German Freudian impression: "Ve vill hoff to shink your head. Und how does zat mack you feel?"
5:39 Clip of Pooh going on murderous rampage shouldn't make me cry with laughter.
6:15 Hurricane Wilma Punishes Mexico Coastline. Bad Mexico coastline, bad!
7:00 Where's my SVU?
7:57 Stupid Criminal Intent.
8:00 Ahh, Law and Order:SVU. Good USA.
8:30 Discussion of marriage and family with online friend that morphs into cloning, to capitalism, that morphs into...something.
9:00 More SVU. Sensing a pattern?
9:07 Eh, I've seen this one twice already. Which isn't an automatic disqualification except I remember how it ends.
10:02 There have to be some I haven't seen.
10:07 Yet I still gasp when the rogue cop lunges.
11:11 Stupid spambots. Why would I want a year of Lean Cuisines?
12:00 A.M. Technically a new day, but I don't measure time like normal people.
12:34 What bit me?
1:02 Nice bruise under that Band-Aid.
1:40 The Net: Bringing Similarly Strange Minds Together.
2:20 Burn a CD of stupid Christmas songs to amuse my friends.
2:45 Drag myself into the shower. After which I have the self-discipline to stay away from the computer and go to bed.

I have to get the flu shot every year due to my asthma, and I am surrounded by the geriatric crew...and feel REALLY bad even getting the shot. Last year, I refrained from getting it due to the shortage...that was horrible--but I did good without a bad attack last winter.

Spambots! ha!!! I keep getting these girls emailing me (bots) with names like, "Jenny"--and that's it, ....with the subject header:

"D0 y0u m3n w4nt 2 g3t b1gg3r?"

Apparently, if they type it all wacky like that, it gets through for some reason...email systems can't detect it. It's also obvious they think I'm a man.

Hmm...

Thanks for the reminder of what life was like before having kids. I would love to have a day like yours!!!

We are all getting a flu shot this year - I've never had one (neither has my husband) - but it doesn't have to do with the fact that both of us are over fifty (yes, Nettie, I am that old!!). It has to do with my oldest daughter's illness. I hate shots!!!! I can give them, but I can't receive them without cringing.

Bad Mexico coastline, bad!

Lol! (Even though the actual damage isn't funny, your pun on the headline is.)

GAH! Flu shot! I'm high risk but I always skip mine. How bad is that? Never mind don't tell me, that's what my mom is for.

what is that thing at 4:02, i got that sometimes too, i have no idea what it's even talking about.
and my oldest daughter hates it when i refer to my husband as "your dad" and i pointed out to her that he is "your dad" and not "my dad" and that's why i refer to him as that. now when he leaves her a note, he always signs it as "your dad", hahahahahahahahaha
