A Light At The End...
No matter what situations life throws at you...
No matter how long and treacherous your journey may seem...
Remember, there is a light at the end of the tunnel!
I'm looking for a little light today, but I sure hope that's not where I find it. I am, shall we say, nonplussed. Yesterday wasn't such a great day, and is best forgotten. I'd say au revoir to it all and hop a plane to somewhere exotic, except -- thanks to the terrorists and the ungodly inconvenience they've caused, I don't want to fly any more.
I'd take something for my post-nasal drip and sinus headache, except -- thanks to the meth heads, I can no longer buy my preference of OTC sinus medication without entering my name and personal info into a database, which I refuse to do.
Today should have been a holiday from work, extra time in which to regain my equilibrium, except -- my boss forgot, scheduled stuff, and didn't tell me last week not to come in today. So -- so he came in about an hour after I did this morning and asked me, "How come you're here? It's a holiday." Ain't that always the way? He told me to go back home and take the day off, but I figured I'm already up, dressed, and out, so I'm working.
Oh, well. We all get by, don't we? I guess I'm better off getting by by the seat of my pants than that poor dog. See? There is an upside to everything.
We might as well torment some Words Gone Wild today, don't you think? They've had a long enough break.

Monday is, of course, Dressup Day. It's too damned cold for me to have dressed up very much. What I have on is totally utilitarian; i.e., black suede pants, taupe sweater set, black suede flats.
Here's some scenery for the ladies on a cold, drab Monday. Or, what the heck, maybe for the guys, too. Who knows?
