Trying to fight "The Man"

I have been suffering from acid issues all day today, but the good news is it isn't because I was drinking soda. YAY!! Back to the Diet Coke, which I initially thought was to blame! Stupid stress and raw onions in breakfast burritos. DOH! Who puts raw onions in breakfast burritos??

I have to warn you that I am having one of my "I hate people" days. I have been eating all day; I am going to explode. Francisco, who is the waiter working my event, just laughs at me. He also told me that I was so bored that I was being boring. Sad thing is, he is right. I think that he rocks, plus he has a very interesting story, having emigrated from Mexico to come here to study. In Mexico, he taught in university; here he is a waiter. Ahh, the American dream. (But he is practicing his English and that is important to him.)

My beloved student worker Protégé is going to come back to work for us in the spring semester. YAY!!! That is the best news of the week, even better than my Coke news.

I had nightmares all night that I was being pursued by a serial killer. I even woke up and fell back to sleep in the same dream. And I keep having dreams that I am friends with Amanda Palmer from the Dresden Dolls, but not last night. Serial killer.

That is my randomness, and this is just the first day my three day hell week!! I am hoping that Punk Rock Mom might join me for chamomile cocktails at Rendezvous after work on Friday, but as of right now, I just want to go to bed. But I might feel differently on Friday; it is so far away.

Steal food, spread disease, but save room for the pumpkin pie

There was a commercial for a program about the Mayflower on the History Channel with William Shatner thanking the Pilgrims for starting a land where there would be religious freedom (he's Jewish.)

And I felt the need to rant at the tv, "Why the hell are you thanking the Pilgrims? They came here so that they could repress everyone else!! They are STILL repressing us!!!! We have a scary Purtian work ethic, and New Englanders are MEAN. GAH!!!!!!!"

Then I had to change the channel because clearly I have issues. Thank goodness I was alone when this happened or someone might have started to worry about me.

Paved paradise, put up a parking lot

I was saddened to read on today that my beloved Virgin Mega Recordstore at 360 Newbury Street is going to be replaced with a Best Buy.

I was under the impression that they were looking for something a little more upscale. Clearly, I was wrong. I am sure that the people who bought those million dollar condos upstairs are just thrilled. The not only have living right over the Mass Pike to deal with, but a mini mall downstairs.

I wonder if they are starting to rethink the fabulousness of living there; I sure would.

Bringing in the sunshine

I was feeling rather down yesterday after work. I had had a series of diappointments over the course of the day, some large scale, some not so large scale. So I headed off to Whole Foods to buy myself a little pick me up.

I ended up with some "emergency cheese" (which is exactly what it sounds like, cheese to eat during emotional emergencies) and some calla lillies and orchids which I arranged together in a vase when I got home.
