My love/hate relationship with Facebook continues.

It got really dark earlier--SUPER dark--and I thought a big storm was rolling in. We got drizzle. That's a lot of drama for not much payoff. Sort of like Facebook.

If I venture out to take care of some errands, the bad weather payoff may come. I will then bitch about that, too.

I've been on the phone almost since I woke up trying to take care of scheduling things and returning calls, and each of these calls has been an exercise in frustration. (In fact, I'm on hold right now.) If businesses want to deal with me on the phone, then why is the person I need to talk to always unavailable or "the system is down" or the person I get on the phone has no idea what I'm talking about? Trust me, none of these contacts is with some call center in India. People just don't have their shit together. Wait--is tonight the full moon? Or was it last night? Maybe I'm dealing with werewolves.

I swear a rat just fell past my window. Maybe it's like those birds in Arkansas. Rats falling from the sky, John McCain saying nice things about Barack Obama, and me getting nine uninterrupted hours of sleep last night. What is up with the universe?
