I know, I know… I’ve been doing a lot of whining and bitching around here lately. But grant me one more day of it, OK? I promise it won’t last forever.
You should all know that disgruntled is one of my favourite words. And that only makes sense, considering I often find myself feeling that way.
This morning, I’ll lay most of the blame on the Beer Tent Cold that is completely ruining my life right now. It’s not a bad cold. But it’s super annoying. Not enough to really knock ya right down, but just there… a sore throat, a heavy head, a general feeling of yuckiness.
Normally, the best part about a cold? Knock yourself out with cold medication, curl up in cozy blankets, and sleep it off. Right?
Didn’t work last night. I mean, it sorta did, for like half an hour – I rented a movie, and was cozied up on the couch when I drifted off into a perfect sleep. (The movie – Friends With Kids - was weird and boring anyways.) But then I woke up, and ended up lying awake half the damn night, all zingy and uncomfortable and FRIGGIN WIDE AWAKE. Thank God there was election entertainment to review on my Facebook and Twitter feeds.
Oh, speaking of which. That also adds to my feeling of disgruntlement this morning. The Quebec provincial elections. Which, once again, proved that I live in a dumbass province that now has elected a Separatist party into a minority government. Awesome.
Even more awesome is that some lunatic opened fire during the leader’s victory speech and somebody actually died.
What the hell? I mean, seriously… What the hell?!
So today, I’m tired, cranky, stuffed up, sucking on Halls which make my mouth taste like crap, and kind of wishing everyone would just stop talking. About the elections, about moving away from this province, about everything. I’m mad that it’s so damn hot & muggy outside. Equally pissed off that it’s freezing cold inside. I hate that summer is ending, yet wish the weather would just change already.
And a whole bunch of other things that I’m feeling nasty about, but really, I can’t talk about them here. Some things… just aren’t blog material.
Forgive me. I’ll get over it.
And if I’m looking on the up-side? Well. At least I didn’t fall into a sinkhole yesterday. I’ve got that going for me.
This actually happened in Ottawa yesterday. I’m thinking that guy probably has better reason to be disgruntled than I do…
