>Aw, Crap

23 Mar

>I still have a cold. I had a long, crappy day, followed by crap at the drugstore and the five-and-dime (doesn’t Target carry facial tissue in grown-up sized boxes? Kleenex?™) and things kept on crappy when I got home, in part due to crappy miscommunication over my crappy celphone, which renders words but doesn’t have quite enough crappy bits in the crapulous A>D/D>A to convey tone of voice.

Ghu help any frikkin’ telemarketer who calls; I’ll turn ’em inside out. Thrice.

I have just about had it with everything on this planet. But it’s just like thermo-damn-damn-damn-dynamics, it’s the only game in town.

    >Try answering the phone in French. . you could be saying "I have an afterburner in my pants" for all they know, but they usually just hang up when it appears you don't speak English (or decent French).I hope you feel better soon!

    >A to D converters are an abomination to begin with. Very little in life is digital to begin with.

    >To at leastmake it possible to sleep, try Afrin nasel spray, just make sure you get the moisurizing kind or you'll regret it. I hate the stuff, but when I have a cold as bad as you're discribing I'll use it before bed for a couple nights running, its amazing what a couple nights sleep without sniffling does for my ability to recover from the cold. Just make sure you read the packaging, its considered adicting if you use it to many days running (I don't see how personally, even the moisturizing kind drys me out to the point of pain, but I can BREATHE)

    >large quantities of c2h5oh. Seriously. It'll either clear your cold, or anesthetize you enough that you won't care.

    >First the Bourbon, then the Launch Codes, then the Button. In that order, please! Cures the Common Cold, cure the Common Political Crisis, speeds up the Evolutionary Process. Take 2 Megatons and call me in the Morning. P.S.: BBC America did a nice piece on the SteamPunk Culture tonight. Worth digging it out of the InterWeb.

    >"one side is totally blocked, no flow at all. The other side, it ends up in my throat."Almost political commentary.
