Something must be wrong with me...

Any normal person would be FREAKING out right now. Not me. I really should be...

Saturday morning, two days before Christmas. I have one tiny part of one gift bought. Nothing else. Nada.

My trunk has been leaking, and it's wet back there. I learned yesterday that it's wetter than I thought. There are four inches of water sloshing around underneath the floor of the trunk where the spare tire sits. And no plug I can pull to drain it.

My computer has been kinda acting up lately. It's really slow. And sometimes it just shuts off, just for fun and excitement. Yesterday when I got home from work it didn't turn on at all. I tried a number of things, once it began to boot, then it froze. No luck. My friend Brad, who is my hero for all things computer related, came over and took a look. Even HE couln'dt make it work. So today I took it in to a repair shop, desperately hoping it's not a hard drive problem cause I haven't backed anythign up for months. (Don't chide me! I feel bad enough!!)

Why am I so calm? I don't think it has anything to do with being patient, etc etc etc. I think it's more that I'm so far the past of stressed out and crazy that my eyes have glazed over and I'm just floating along throughout my day laughing hilariously at nothing in particular, and have lost all touch with reality.

I sense an eye twitch coming on...

Ha ha... ha..... hahahahahahaaahahaaaahaaaaaaaaaaaa.

Welcome to lalaland, I've been here a few years and it's not so bad. You can get little "happy" pills and if need be, a padded room, or a snug jacket, that hugs you so tight! Some places still provide little jolts of electricity, if that's your thing, but lobotamies are not fashionable anymore, that's done with chemicals now. :) :) :)

Denial baby.......it's the best darn thing!! Seriously.

I had bought one present two days ago. Yesterday I went into Borders and bought gift cards for everyone at the Xmas Eve event and a few more........just in case.

Yippeeee. Done!

Gift cards :) Book stores, Starbucks... for some online places you can even email the "card" and they'll get it asap, like Amazon.com or iTunes.

The trunk: Empty by the cup and then large sponges or sponge mops. Um... then fix the leak ;) Or maybe do that first! OR have someone drill a drain hole in there. Or all of the above :)
