(Yet another entry that was started yesterday and I was busy and then passed out before I could post it. Gah!)
9:09 am... My boss has laryngitis. Now he truly is a walking horror film, sound effects and all. If the Hellmouth opened and Satan himself arose from the flames, he would sound like my boss. Evil incarnate. On another note, I continually profess utter dislike for the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Not sure what happened, but their sound went from awesome to gross, in my opinion. I can't even tolerate the new stuff. Like Dave Matthews Band. What the heck happened? It's like, it was so good, and how bad it is now, you don't want it to encroach on your happy memories? I'd just as soon find something else. However, there's a Red Hot jam that's always on during my morning commute. Give It Away. Why do I always sing along?
11:03 am.... Researching for a weekend jaunt to Miami. So glad I don't live there anymore. Too damn hot, congested, sweaty, moldy, damp, dank, expensive, and full of fake boobies. The amount of silicone in that city is so off-putting, it upsets me. It's too bad, because it really can be a very cool place, so much to do, and eat, and see. What finally did me in and made me move north is the traffic. Every time I was stuck in a traffic jam I would pray that there weren't any pregnant women sitting in agony in a car somewhere, five miles from the hospital and waiting for an hour to get there. How miserable would that be? But I can do a day visit. And, Miami Spice Month means Marguerite gets to eat at some swank place for one third the price.
1:30 pm....I belong to a website called Heya, it's a forum for Toyota fans to chat and share ideas and be nerdy Toyota car people. They give away free stuff too. They picked me to participate in this blog study they're doing to gauge response on how young(ish) people make major decisions, i.e. buying a car. I figure I blog already, might as well do it for Toyota (maybe get a discount on my new car?) and pick up some extra money. Guess I bought my Prius at the right time. Decision-making. To be honest, I don't really know if I have a definitive source for advice when making decisions. Certain people are good for certain things, you know? There's no oracle for me. I kinda rely on myself. Parents are for cars, houses, and men you want to marry. Sisters are for girlie issues and problems and not limited to: hair, clothing, guys in general, sex, interfamily problems, gift-giving ideas. I probably bug my sisters more than I ask for advice. Friends are good for laughs, company, shoulders to cry on. Not in that order. But I don't ask them for advice either. Haha, I'm sure they'd all love to know that's what I think of them. What can I say? I don't generally include others in on my thought process. My sisters call me secretive. I don't know. I generally give advice and not really ask for it. I'm a good advice giver. I think it's a curse. If you give good advice, you don't get good advice. Maybe you're supposed to do the same for yourself that you do for others. Maybe I should find an advice person, a go-to for problem situations. I'll probably just stick with me.
3:30 pm... Still bugged by the advice discussion. A lot of the decisions in my life are already done for. I will always have coffee with cream if it available in the morning. I will never have more than 2 beers in public. I will always shop sale. I have bosses for my work decisions, and if I don't know the answer I ask them. Case closed. In my classes, my word goes because I am the teacher. And school, that's just working within boundaries and guidelines. Also, I'm not really a risk taker in the normal sense of the word. Will not bungee jump, skydive, ride motorcycles or bikes without a helmet, always wear seat belt. I don't see the point of it. Haha, why? I don't really have much need for advice. Is that bad? I don't know, it's just how it is. I'm not a pushover, but I have very little conflict in my life. I'm a distancer from uncomfortable situations/people. That solves the majority of my problems. Let it lie, and usually you get clarity in the distance and time away. I believe this.
