February and I have irreconcilable differences.

This day has just decided it's going to be ridiculously bad. I got very little sleep last night, despite my goal to utterly relax with no work to do. I really have no idea what that's about, except that I had too much coffee at work. That's the only thing I can think of. But since I drank the coffee in the early afternoon, and I had very little caffeine after that...I dunno. Now my entire system is whacked out and I don't feel like eating today, possibly because of the no sleep, and possibly because I feel unloved, and possibly because I may have eaten something that didn't agree with me yesterday, and possibly still because of the coffee.
And then some crazy woman had the audacity to, as I was clearly turning into the parking lot, try to walk into my car, as if I should have waited for her when she was walking in the middle of the adjoining lot lane, and, had she gotten into the crosswalk, would have been far away from my car. Please don't try to shortcut and then look at me like I'm to blame for you nearly walking into my car when you can clearly see me and, were you a car, would have had to wait for me. Pedestrians should never be so convinced of their superiority that they try to play chicken with a hunk of metal and, in my case, plastic.

On the other side of things, that Chinese skater didn't break her knee, evidently, despite the most sickening fall I've seen in a while (with the possible exception of the 2004 fall by the Russian pairs skater, which they also thoughtfully showed in one of their lead-up stories for pairs skating. )
Also, it's almost time for men's Olympic hockey, and considering that there are some former Spartans among the bunch, hoorah. For instance, JM Liles is playing for the US...he was at State when I was. Also Tony Tuzzolino and Jason Muzzati are playing for Italy. I won't get to see them much, probably, but I will remember with fondness Tony Tuzzolino's many penalty minutes as a Spartan.

I keep checking to see if you've posted something new, and keep seeing you haven't. :(

Sorry you're having trouble with February. And even though pedestrians (supposedly) ALWAYS have the right of way, they sure can be a pain in the ass--especially in small college towns. And you're right--they should think awfully carefully about who, and what, they're dealing with...

Hope your days and months get better...

P.S. Henry, Mar-Mar's predecessor, now has a companion named Etta. They're in separate rooms, though. Can't have those fins flaring...

P.P.S. The word verification is "pukyy"--hah!
