The good, the bad and the chubby!

The bad:

Gmail just will NOT open for me. I've tried all kinds of troubleshooting and still nothing. I've been without it (except for on my BlackBerry, where it works fine) for two days now.

While my allergy m.e.d.i.c.a.t.i.o.n (ha! take that spammers! find me now!) helps with most sneezing and coughing, it does nothing for my skins reaction to a cat scratch. (Which, in case you were wondering, is a little somewhere between a mosquito bite and hives.)

The good:

This baby ^ is on it's way to me. I've wanted one forever to replace my old player, but was hesitant because of the $70-$100 price tag. And then I found one on eBay for $9.99! Yes, please! I can't wait to listen to my records again, and the great thing about this apartment is that they can be played at top volume if I so choose :)

And here I am, reading poetry at a coffeehouse night at my old college. It was a very fun time, but I do wish they would expand out and allow us to read short stories, as well. I am very critical and not at all proud of my poetry, but I would love to have the chance to share some of my stories.

The chubby:

The camera adds what, 10 pounds? 20 pounds? I was quite stunned when I watched the playback and realized that I had picked quite an unfortunate and unflattering outfit to wear. Hopefully it didn't look that bad in person, as I had originally thought it looked quite nice in the mirror before leaving the house!

I am heading off to bed now. Words cannot express how grateful I am to get to sleep in tomorrow! I've somehow managed to exhaust myself already this week. Phew!
