T3 (aka Top Ten Tuesday)


1. My husband is refusing to take out the trash again.I don't know why. I guess I'll just have to refuse to do his laundry and cook his meals until he gives in.

2. I let another damn load of laundry sour in the washing machine. I hate it when I do that. I thought I'd dried that load, but obviously I didn't since they now stink to high heaven.

3. The little ol' blue-hair that was in front of me alllllllllllllll the way down Main in her big white Lincoln, driving oh.....all of about 17 1/2 mph. God love her. But she still made me mad.

4. The fact that it's Men's Night and I always like Men's Night simply because after the kids go to bed at 8, I have until midnight to be completely by myself, yet tonight Paul just wheeled in about an hour ago. The jerk. He knew I'd had a bad day. When he's cranky I try to stay away and give him space. When I'm cranky he just smothers me. Or maybe it just seems like he smothers me because I'm crankyy. Either way, I'm REALLY cranky and now he's here which makes me EVEN BITCHIER.

5. My tan is fading. Normally I would include this in Whiney Wednesday, but for some reason today IT JUST MADE ME MAD.

6. The butheads at Discover didn't call today. And I was in JUST the right kind of mood to actually answer the phone and give them a piece of my mind. But see, when you pay your bill, they don't call. Hmh. Who knew.

7. I spent $20 for SEVEN GALLONS OF GAS this evening. That gave me oh....about 1/16 of a tank. Have I mentioned I drive an A*shole Van with a gas tank the size of a Sherman tank?

8. The fact that I'm cranky has even made me mad today. I'm normally a pretty happy camper and I like to think I also stay on a pretty even keel most of the time. I'm not as moody as I used to be, by no means. So when I find myself cranky for no apparent reason it makes me even crankier because it's not like me to be this way, yet there's really just nothing I can do about it. AND there's really no particular reason WHY I'm cranky. I tried to get un-cranky this afternoon, but it just didn't happen.

9. I broke an underwire in my bra. My bras are $37.50 AND the closest Lane Bryant is in Springfield - an hour and a half away.

10. Did I mention that Paul CAME HOME EARLY????????? And he is now sitting in the living room playing PS2?? WHY is this making me so mad????

The only good thing to happen today is that Sis and I found a twenty in the parking lot at Wal*Mart tonight AND WE KEPT IT. And it felt good.

HURRY! Get this woman some chocolate, Midol and Smirnoff. NOW~!

I hate it when my laundry sours. I think sometimes it's the water quality here and my soap, it can sour within 4 hours here some days.

That little blue haired gummer was in front of me yesterday too! TWICE! Annoying.... I have full coverage, maybe I should just ram her? Hey, if I total my car, maybe I can get one that gets better gas mileage?

Your fading tan is bothering you.... at least you tan. I haven't had a tan since, well, I was a tanager, er um a teeeeeeenager.

Be grateful that you got gas last night, it went up to $2.81 this morning.

Sorry about your bra, I've been reading your comments on them and now I'm thinking about trying one. My boobs just don't look right lately.

Ohhhh, Bob came home early tonight too. Totally sucked ass big time.

You found $20 in the parking lot? Sweeeeeeeeeeeet. Did I mention I lost $20?

I hate it when my bra's break. The poor girls at Victoria's Secret hate breaking out the Dairy Cow section they keep in the back. The cute bra's are never made in DD.

I used to buy my bras at VS too because I thoughtthey were higher quality or something, but then I noticed that the underwires all broke around the same time. It's like there's a timer in the seam and someone hits a button to destroy it after a while, thus forcing me to buy another $40 bra. Screw 'em! I've started supplementing my bra stash with cheapo bras.

You may as well keep the $20 from WalMart. It's not like Tasha in Customer Service was going to hunt down the owner.

April-Chocolate, Midol and a Schmirnoff??? Wow, I should get PMS more often around you.

I buy a lot of ammonia because during the summer the laundry sours really fast around here.

That gas I bought last night is going to have to last me until oh...January then?

Oh you really should try a LB bra. I prefer the demi-cup but it's because I don't like for my ladybug to be covered up. But I've worn several different styles from there and loved them all.

Sorry about that $20 - we bought gas with it. Next time stuff the money further down in your bra, closer to your phone, silly.

Mrs.Coach-Hey, at least you can buy your bras at Victoria's Secret.

Dairy Cow section...bless your heart.

Ann-I'll continue to buy $40 bras until I'm sleeping in a refrigerator box or in a van down by the river. They just make the ol' girls look better!

That's exactly what Sis said - that the kids behind the counter of the service desk were only going to pocket it themselves. I bought gas with it - my half got me roughly 3.75 gallons. woot.
