Random un-fun things

Number 1 totally NOT fun event

Washing pots and pans and having the fluorescent bulb above the sink fall down and smash. Then Googling clean up of said bulb and seeing no instructions for how to clean up pieces that are in a sink of water and calling hotlines in search of an answer. By the way, the Poison Control Hotline says it's ok to just drain the sink. Having a bulb fall down and smash right in front of you is rather rattling. I may be too traumatized to ever wash dishes again.

Number 2 just somewhat annoying event

The Phil Collins song "Against All Odds" should simply not be played in grocery stores. There are people out there struggling in life so much that making decisions on what food they want to eat is way more difficult than it should be without the added influence of emotional songs. So this week I'll be eating eggs, apples, and bananas. I was much too upset over lost love to think of any other foods I like.

Sigh. The kitchen has probably aired out long enough so I'm off to clean up my own personal Superfund site.

Oh boy - both not fun.

And as for muzak - I agree they should stick with light and cheery songs.

Take care of yourself.

Here's hoping for better days ahead.... I love your recent pictures of Sammy! And I envy your green thumb. Nothing grows under my care, except mold.

oh, geesh, annamarie, that would rattle me. hard not to take lights exploding near you personally. i think you should take at least...two weeks off from dish duty. and i think we should all develop a list of songs that should be banned from public places...against all odds is a good start. the greatest gift by whitney houston...sending you much love.

Wow, that sucks about the light bulb. And I totally get being so consumed with just trying to get through life that you can'teven decide what you want to eat. That's me lately. Why would they pump sad music through a grocery store? Don't they want people to feel happy and care free and just buy more stuff? They should rethink that. :)
