2. My new vacuum cleaner. The one aspect of your life that should always suck is your vacuum cleaner. I was cleaning the Bat Cave on Friday, only to discover that my El Cheapo Bissell was now 110% useless, as opposed to 85% useless. This gave My Man a project, and he immediately hit the web researching vacuum cleaners. His assessment? Vacuum cleaners are serious business! After some shopping around we settled on a Riccar, and glory be - it sucks! It really and truly sucks!
3. Agreeing with A.J. Pierzynski. I loathe the Chicago White Sox catcher with the heat of a thousand blazing suns. I hate this guy. If I were driving down a Chicago street, and saw him standing on a curb, I'd gun the engine, run him over, then put the car in reverse to run over him again. Loathe. Seriously loathe. So it broke my heart when I read this quote from A.J.:
"Whoever wants it, us or Minnesota, Detroit is trying to give it. They are keeping us in it by not winning. That's what is so frustrating. It seems like it's there, but we can't do anything about it."God damn it. I agree with Pierzynski. Detroit Tigers? Sometimes you make it really hard to love you. You are sucking major butt right now. Just sayin'.
4. My employers are now blocking certain social networking sites. Bye-bye Facebook, Twitter, and my super awesome Upcoming Historical Romances wiki. If blogs are on the chopping block, this will seriously put a crimp in my style. Do you know how many blogs I read for work-related "stuff?" A lot. Bugger.
5. Not reading. My reading mojo is toast. My blogging mojo is toast. I'm not sure what my problem is, but inspiration has definitely fled the scene of the crime. Sigh...
