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.

ligitimate - Bona fide expert in ligatures.

tath - Thath hath to be thum thupid chore.

sacrilegeous - Cussing and shunning religion because you hurt your legs, ligaments, and/or sacroiliac and developed gas.

satusfy - What you might achieve from bad sex, but I wouldn't count on it.

fettish - Object of obsession of someone who doesn't know what the hell he's doing.

broke a heal - Interfering with the witch doctor.

coutour - Low fashion.

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?

You are having a "Kanrei Day*" today it seems. My bad day was last week. Things will get better. Think of it like this, Mondays already suck so at least you have not ruined a day. What better day to have a bad one than a Monday?

*patent pending

Serena Joy said...

LOL, Kan. It's actually turned out to be a fairly decent day, even if it was a Monday. Hope yours is good, too.:)

Charles said...

I want one of those mini light sabers.

You're better off in an upright position, with post-nasal drip anyway.

Man, woman or child, who wants to look at some guy's hairy armpit (especially, us guys come to think of it)? Yuck! Gimme women or... well, don't give me guys.

Serena Joy said...

You could do a lot with one of those mini light sabers, huh, Charles? LOL. I agree that upright is best in daylight with post-nasal drip. I managed it pretty well today, too.:)

I don't know, I kind of like those hairy pits. I find them -- scenic. It would, of course, be pretty disgusting if the model were female.:-)

Charles said...

There's any number of car chewing/scratching squirrels to be lit up with a MLS.

Scenic? That thing looks like a tunnel with no light at the end. If the model were female, it'd be disgusting, or French (hehe, no offense to the French, that's just the running joke until there's some other nationality to pin it on.(besides it's easier to say than two or more syllables(hey, WCIS? I'm an American and we're known to be lazy.(We're also known to be hard working, BTW.))))

Charles said...

Of course I could have said, "If the model were female, it'd be disgusting, or Madonna."

Serena Joy said...

Hmmm, well, I don't know about that, Charles. I can't SEE the end. I guess the boy was shy.:-)

Does Madonna have hairy pits? I've been careful not to look very closely at her for years.:)

good post,
but i see that
you set rather low qualifications for your man -- ok, but unusual for a good looking babe like yourself -- just sayin'

.....Breyers Vanilla M'Lady?...Toujours!!!!


Serena Joy said...

Those lower qualifications are only for Mondays, /t.:-)

Oui, G, BV. Toujours.:)

Hey SJ :) I hope today is a better day for you!! That sinus stuff is just so annoying. Bleh!

Serena Joy said...

Sinus stuff is a big bleh, Snow; so true. It was a better day, though.:)
