Mondays are for bitching – Revenge of the Fifth

It might be Karma punishing me for NOT adequitely recognizing Star Wars days yesterday or it could be a case of the Mondays.

The weekend was busy. Really Busy. And I hear rumor that there are those of you out there who actually have MORE free time on weekends and to you I say Pa-Shaw.

Bitching | Slightly Off KilterI went to bed right around midnight last night after reading a few chapters of Harry Potter and the order of the Phoenix. {Yes, I was bitten by the Harry Potter bug much later than the rest of the world and I don’t care.} I wanted to keep reading but knew that if I didn’t get to sleep, I’d have a helluva day today… so much for that line of thinking.

That’s when Revenge of the 5th started…around 2AM I was riddled with a massive headache that would not go away. I tossed and turned, waking at 3 and 4 and 5… So of COURSE when I finally did fall asleep for more than an hour, I woke up for work late.

As luck would have it, every idiot on the road decided to drive right in front of me. Here’s the thing about traffic. I honestly don’t mind traffic. It’s the idiots that bug the crap outta me. Traffic – where we are all just plugging along, respecting each other’s boundaries and working together to get from point A to point B – is a way of life when you commute. We’re all frustrated but we aren’t assholes about it. That was NOT this morning. This morning, apparently blinkers are optional and there was a blatant disregard for personal space. Drivers in a hurry felt it necessary to pull out into the lane I’m already occupying because it might get them to the stoplight a mili-second before me. Way to go dude. Awesome.

I can tolerate many MANY things… stupidity is not on that list and stupid drivers often piss me off. Never fear though – I have my Quad Caramel Macchiato so in a few minutes, I’ll be human again. The headache has disappeared *knock on wood*. Plus, I have an evening of fun planned so I have that to look forward to. And I am… if only this day would pass quickly and without incident. What are the odds of THAT happening?

  1. I get headaches that keep me up all night too, they are brutal. Not getting enough sleep makes everything harder to deal with in the morning, especially awful drivers.

  2. That Meredith Brooks song is a guilty pleasure of mine. Don’t tell.

  3. Staring at the clock and wishing it to click away quickly for you!
    Stupid drivers get me CRAZY, too!

  4. Mondays are rough. I love songs about being angry or complaining or being a bitch. Luckily there are SO MANY to choose from πŸ˜‰

  5. Book hangovers are so worth it. πŸ™‚ Especially when you know there’s good coffee on the other end.

    • I think I was more frustrated that I didn’t read more… but in all honesty… if This is the worst bitch I can come up with, I’m doing pretty good…

  6. Mondays can totally suck. And I’ve literally never read one word of Harry Potter. Shame on me, the English teacher. πŸ™‚

    • I hadn’t either Lydia – but I’m hooked. The characters are well developed and the story line is captivating. I’m honestly surprised by it. But don’t take my word for it… I liked Twilight and Hunger Games…

      • So, I ADORED the Hunger Games and dealt with Twilight (actually didn’t HATE it until the 3rd book). I think I would like Potter (I’ve seen movie #1). My daughter wants to read it this summer, and I promised I’d read it, too!

        • Dad got the box set of all 7 books as a Christmas present for the boys and I can’t get either one to read them. It’s CRAZY. but I’m loving them and can’t wait to hear what you think πŸ™‚
