Good Weather Saves Your Tax Dollars

Nobody reads this on the week-end.  Traffic isn't too crazy on a week-day, but week-ends are exceptionally slow.  I could probably post nude pictures of myself today and no one would see them.  I'm not going to chance it, but still...

So how did good weather save your tax dollars?  I woke up this morning after an incredible night's sleep.  By that I mean NINE hours.  Pumpkin slept at my mom's, where she woke up at 5am, but back at our place, Chichi slept until 9am.  Sorry Ma, but it was totallly worth it at this end.  Anyhow, despite getting ample sleep, I was still crusty, smurgly, and all things gross.  Based on previous experiences, I determined that my cold had morphed into a sinus infection.  I am a total fan of drugs, so I headed out to a walk-in clinic to get a prescription for whatever would turn off the 'colourful ' faucet that is my head. 

Getting out of the car, I realized that it was a nice day for a change.  Once inside the clinic, I was told that I would have a one to two hour wait.  That is actually a pretty good wait, but I kept thinking about the nice weather outside, and weighed it against the fact that my eyes were bugging out by two inches thanks to my sinus pressure.  Nice day...head exploding...nice day...head exploding...NICE DAY!!!!  I forfeited my spot in line, ran to the pharmacy to load up on whatever would help, and went home to play.  My head has not yet exploded but the night is young and I've maxed out my sinus pills.  If you don't hear from me tomorrow, you'll know what happened.

I read this, and it's still the weekend. Good thing you didn't post nude pictures... I hope your head is still in one piece. And about the eyebrow shaping thing - I didn't even know that service existed until a few months ago. My ex-boyfriend casually mentioned that his ex-girlfriend was obsessed with her eyebrows and had them done regularly. But when I asked him if he thought I needed to get my eyebrows shaped, he refused to answer, assuming I was playing one of those games where there's a right answer and a wrong answer. So I still have no idea. In fact, I forgot all about it until I read your blog post. I am clearly out of touch with all things related to fashion and beauty. Sigh. (Did I just commit a faux pas by commenting on one post beneath a different one?)

That is a hard choice, I know of sinus infections (I used to suffer from chronic ones). I know I have preached the sinus rinse to you before. But it really only works before you get the infection, once you have it you are doomed. I hope you get the drugs tomorrow cause today is way too nice again. Dam it I am at the office!
