you know that old saw: every drop of rain holds a rainbow?
they were so full of it.
today, Gentle Reader, is my birthday. i say this not to cultivate best wishes of the day or whatever, just to set the tone for the story.
for starters, i woke up freezing around 3a.m., with a nasty headache. freezing, because HogBoy had stolen all the blankies, leaving me with a thin sheet & blanket.
then, as i got in the shower, i discovered we had no hot water.
not a drop.
nor a note from management stating that there would be no hot water.
i seriously considered just being a stinky girl. then, remembering it is my 46th year on this earth, i though if i do that, people would say i'm homeless and try to give me money, or a trip to the shelter.
so i shivered through the shower. suck it up, baby, just suck it up.
but, i did get a birthday card saying "Princess Today. Princess Tomorrow. Princess Forever."
princesses do not have to suck it up. especially when it comes to warm showers.
nice cards. nice gifts. my boss forgot it was my birthday. we ordered Mexican for lunch and had root beer floats for dessert.
then the rug got pulled out.
they announced at work that we will be having layoffs in our department. soon. like next month.
well, happy flipping birthday to me.
on the other hand...George Clooney is on the market.
well, whaddya know. there is a rainbow in every drop of rain.
if i could just make sure it's rain and not something else.
