no wind, no waves

that's the story of my life lately, very windy. i'm reclaiming the title as i left it as a comment somewhere, perhaps here? i don't remember. but even before i left it, i had stolen it from here where i found my daily chinese proverb. thanks, confabulator!

anyhow, wind. lot's of wind lately. pretty much on all sides. got the quagmire at work thing going on STILL, the ex has become super dad since he almost killed my baby two weeks ago, and then i broke my pinky toe literally in the process of going running. oweeeeee. it looks like a black vienna sausage stapled to the side of my foot, very unnatural. very unfeminine. very painful. LOOK AT MY GIANT PURPLE TOE it seems to scream as it fights the uniform of my way of life. you ain't no cavegirl, shoe, squeeze in those heels.

afterall, it's no time to frump. irs d-day is on the horizon and then work will slow down to a manageable pace. right now, it's all just wind. a whirlwind, to be sure.

i'm ready for the waves. i'm ready for the sand and the surf and no more thinking about all this. the money and the taxes and the fruitcake lady and the freaking never ending fiasco and Lord Dumbass the disney dad...

see you at the end of april. wish you were there.

I'll give you a dollar, too, but I've a question about etiquette - when do I fork over the dollar? During the dance or afterwards? Wait...this is about a frickin' toe?!

I'll kick in an Abraham for a pic of the whole foot.

There's nothing like good friends. Your best pals all willing to pay good money to witness your suffering. Gee, what can I say other than: "They're nothing like good friends."

(Put me down for a buck, too.)

Hell, all these offers and not one damned offer to kis it and make it better...
