Laptop goooooood.

It took forever driving through traffic & the afternoon deluge to Fry's Electronics yesterday, is nothing fancy or expensive but meets both my current and possible future needs, and it's niiiiiiice. With the DirecTV, DVR, wireless network & now this all in the past 3 months we truly feel a part of the 21st century now.

It's also been nice to breathe again, both Kieran & I haven't been doing too well & this morning was the first in a while that neither of us woke up gasping for air. That cleared up the allergy/cold debate pretty well!

Looking forward to a very fun & busy month starting tomorrow, I've had more than enough of this one.

Go to hell. Go directly to hell. Do not pass go, do not collect $200.

I didn't previously know that fixable nail puncture repairs on tires purchased from Costco are free & they only charge for 1.5 tires if you end up needing to get 2 due to a non-fixable one.

This unexpected interruption to our day also resulted in a long overdue (free, I knew this one though) tire rotation & balancing for my car. Go team us!

Never, ever, ever use a drive-thru car wash when you have to pee.

I'm covering another job for a week and the ergonomic keyboard at the station is annoying as hell to my non-conformist typing ways & speed. The resurrection of pain from a worker's comp injury that happened almost 10 years ago was enough for me to draw the line today though. Out with the ergonomically correct mouse with a thumbwheel that relies on heavy use of a tendon I nearly demolished packing textbooks at a rapid pace without wrist support, in with my old crappy one that I know how to use properly to avoid carpal tunnel!

In other news, full highlights (red and blonde) & a haircut for $7 more than I would have paid for the cut alone at my old stylist is making me really happy. Yay for 1/2 off coupons and change!

In a rather odd way, I'm more freaked out by the London bombings than 9/11 since I've been in a lot of those stations and can visualize the areas but have never seen New York.

Of course, I'm keeping with my involuntary morbid song recall dating back to the Murrah bombing in 1995. Route 66 was just sarcastic, Oklahoma City looks oh so pretty. A more realistic King's Cross (Pet Shop Boys) has been stuck in my head all day and it's driving me insane.

Only last night I found myself lost
By the station called King's Cross
Dead and wounded on either side
You know it's only a matter of time

The cupboards above the fridge now open about 75% of the way, a vast improvement from just a few inches before. I wish I could say the same about my mind at the moment. I'm used to doing my job on autopilot, but not life in general.

I scared myself the other day when I realized that I'm coming up on five years of living here. Not only that, but I've also been working at the same place (although not the same job) since a few days after I moved here. That's completely unheard of for anyone my age, and I'm not sure what it means. Have I traded career challenges for complacency? I created two of the three jobs that I've done here, so that has to count for something, right? With Kieran here and the economy utter crap I'm not inclined to leave this safety net anytime soon, but I find myself wondering if it's time to move on once he's a bit older.
