Morning Allergy Whine (You Are Warned)

I've never been a morning person. There are lots of reasons. Right now one of the top reasons is that I tend to wake up with really bad allegies. I don't know exactly what happens, but my lungs feel like I was puffing on a bag of lint overnight. Is my house really THAT dusty? My throat gets so dry than when I swallow, it CREAKS. My nose takes about 5 minutes to unclog, sort of. And my ears still hurt and I've got a headache.

Noooooooooooooo!



(The exclamation is reserved for man on the left, not man on right. Of course my dad would reverse that. Or say both men are turkeys.)

Counting Chickens Too Soon

Aaaargh!

I've been waiting on my book order to come in. I need the books for Saturday night. In order to keep up with their arrival, I've been checking my home voicemail from work to see if I've got any message from the concierge desk at my building. Well, nothing yesterday, nothing this morning, but then this afternoon there was a message say two packages had arrived for me.

"Yes!" I said, since I'm expecting two things and logically one should be my book order. I was so sure that's what it was, I emailed my co-workers who'd pre-ordered and told them to bring in their money tomorrow. And I hurried home, half-skipping, so excited to have the order in, relieved...

Only to find out it actually was just ONE of my orders (merchandise from Immanion Thrift Market) that had been SPLIT because one item was put in a special package. I now have three more days for the postal service to cough up my books.

Please send the system a sense a urgency and direction!

VENI VENI VENI

Caleb says it's an unreasonable expectation, but PLEASE, PLEASE, I hope those books come. I knew I should have ordered them while I was still in England... As is was, I ordered the day I got back (the 17th) and they shipped last Friday (the 24th). I'm sure I can have a nice party w/o them but I won't be able to enjoy it.
