I spent what may have been the most boring morning of my life wandering around Wal-Mart today while I waited for two new tires to be installed on my car. The Wal-Mart employees were all very pleasant and my new tires seem to be perfectly acceptable tires, but man did it take a long time for those tires to be installed. Why does everything in Wal-Mart have to play music, flash lights or make some other sort of noise? And then there’s the constant announcements on the store PA. That store comes close to Toys R Us for sheer ability to put me on edge.
Then I went to work and worked. My, what a dashing and delightful existence I lead.
I came home intending to answer some emails and cruise around my blogroll, scattering my morsels of wisdom in the form of insightful and humorous comments. But instead I found myself lying on the couch, unable to break the spell cast by a repeat of Law & Order. It was a crossover episode to the regular Law &Order from the early days of SVU when Benson still had long hair. Fascinating! That meant that John and I didn’t even eat dinner until 9:30, and then I had to go walk Seamus in the rain. Now I’m afraid the Internet is going to have wait just a little bit longer – breathlessly, I’m sure – for whatever brilliance my mind has to offer, because I am going to bed.
