I need it to go with my whine. Mind you, I have no real reason to whine. Well, my reasons are real but comparatively so they aren't real. If you hate self-indulgent people like that, move on down. I need to get my whine on so I can get over myself already. You see, my router that is, oh, maybe a year or so old, went out last week. Don't know how or why. For the first three days I was too busy to even call the cable company to find out if it was the service. Alas, I discovered it wasn't. I am now hard-hooked to my cable modem. Sucks! I have to sit in the livingroom, no television to blare in the background, no headboard with pillows to prop up against. I feel like I'm at work. Egad! I don't even know when I'll have the time or energy to figure out what the "bleep" is wrong with it either.
So, that brings me to today. I left my house practically at the crack of fricken dawn. I'm not a morning person. I like to putz around the house and drink coffee in the morning. But, not this morning. They were applying "slurry" to my street and I didn't feel like parking a quarter of a mile away on the street last night before I went to bed so I just got out of here ten minutes before the scheduled time for slurry-ing to commence. Funny, no one was there yet to begin slurry-ing. Don't people arrive early anywhere anymore - say like one hour and fifteen minutes early? That's how early I was for work this morning. And, that's with stopping to pick up a coffee and sausage and egg biscuit from Mickie D's.
Since I got into work so early this morning, I decided to only stay until 5:30p tonight. In order to make good use of my time, I used the early-off to stop by the grocery store. I bought jugs of juice, bottles of sparkling water, milk, a case of water and two of those two and half gallon spigot thingies of water, oh, and two bottles of wine. I arrive to my street to turn in, only to see it blocked off and all the parking spaces directly in front of my apartment building taken. I drive down and around the block. The closest I got is about a quarter of a mile. Needless to say, that water, stayed in the car tonight. I still ended up having to hoof it back and forth twice to bring everything in.
Luckily, I decided to pick up a bottle of wine at the grocery store. That's a glass of it in the picture. I have wine glasses, but it was warm and I didn't want to wait for it to be chilled. Riunite on ice. It's nice!
Funny, if you look at the picture it looks like the glass is wide-mouthed and narrows at the bottom but it is actually the same circumference all the way down. Perspective is strange that way. Huh?
