So, so far today I showered without a problem
but before I had my finger on the button to press my hairdryer on the
freaking power went out. It
stayed out til 5 mins before I had to leave before I'd be REALLY late
to get to work. So I had to air dry my lovely coiff, and now it has so much product in it my head feels greasy (and I tried to
run the flat iron
over it when the power finally came back on in that quick 5 minutes
when there was too much product in it and that was just a bad,
bad, bad idea). On account of there being no power I could not have my
first coffee of the day - which is very, very important for me to have
in my system prior to starting
my work day (my coworkers and any customer that I come into contact can attest to that). So now my hair looks like straw, my face feels like I smeared butter over it, and
I smell like a combination of Tidestick & coffee creamer because I slobbered the one coffee I did have all over the front of my WHITE blouse. And there's a full
moon. And I'm only at my first break. Stellar.

I admit it, I'm a bit vain. When you're trying to make people overlook your fluffy form you try your best to dress respectfully and have your general grooming in check. For a while now, I've been treating myself to gel nails. They make me feel like a lady. And they help me keep from chowing down on my cuticles and nails (disgusting, gross, most non-ladylike habit of all time). This evening I have an appointment for a fill. They're in pretty rough shape. As I make the motion to enter my car door at lunch, I somehow manage to jam my middle left finger nail under and up and over the door handle, instantly snapping my entire nails off. Yes, nails. That would mean the fake gel overlay, and the human nail underneath. Clear off in one giant searing painful motion. And then the blood. Sweet baby Jesus the blood. Oh and did I mention the pain? It felt like I had cut the tip of my finger off. It throbbed and I bled through the first bandaid. Yeah. So my nail appointment is post-poned til next week. And typing sorta hurts now so I'm going to stop.

Well, so I made it back to my house alive despite the near miss of the red Dodge that apparently wanted to try to get closer to me (watch where you're going, MORON!). My feet are soaking and my finger is still throbbing. I have no coffee for the morning but I don't dare risk going back outside. It's almost dark and the moon is almost shining. Besides, I'm having a bad hair day anyway.
