This morning's Wake-up Song* was Pussycat Dolls' Don't Cha: Don't… - Ldy, the lemony, ligerish ducttaparian's Magic Treehouse of Lost Thoughts
A classy broad's life... with footnotes.
This morning's Wake-up Song* was Pussycat Dolls' Don't Cha:
Don't you wish your girlfriend was hot like me
Don't you wish your girlfriend was a freak like me
Don't cha
Don't cha

I think my subconscious mind is punishing me for something.

Paul and I had a fight yesterday. I broke a dish: KER-SMASH!

The smashingness made me feel a bit better. But the spaces between us are still broken and sharp.

My Firefox is wacked. Every time I open it, it wants to download this file: ff1castl.mid

Now, I recognize this file. It's a midi of a Final Fantasy song, one of many I was collecting when I was creating ringtones for my phone, back in either October of last year or March, 2004. WTF?

Why did it have to remember the geekiest file possible? I think it's time for a full clean reinstall.

I went clothes shopping at Penney's yesterday. It was a hellish experience.

I've since decided on my answer to James Lipton's question "What sound or noise do you hate?" It's that horrible chime that Penney's has in their dressing rooms.

There was one dressing room that had two separate entrances-- one to the hip kids' clothes and the other to the old ladies' clothes. Two chimes. Two slightly-differently-keyed chimes. Constantly going off.

Combine that with the heat, the screaming children, the smell of unwashed bodies and the funhouse three-way-mirror, and you'll understand why I say "hell is a place we create on earth, and it's deep in the bowels of Penney's."

I'm on my second oxy ascension in KoL, and will probably ascend tomorrow (RNG-willing). Then I'll be on my third oxy ascension.

Those of you who don't play KoL, just ignore what I said. Those of you who do can groan in sympathy :)

Well, time to shower and go grocery shopping. I've been using The Grocery Game for the past few months. It's a site that compares coupons to sales prices for one of a number of grocery store chains, in order to find the best deals on stuff. It's pretty nifty, actually. I'd never been a coupon-cutter before.

I keep a notebook with those plastic page inserts in it, slip each month's coupons into an insert, and slap a post-it with the date on it. So far, I've saved quite a bit more than the cost of the program plus Sunday papers, even with only using it once or twice a month, so I guess I'll keep with it.

I imagine you'd save even more if you had a big family. First month is free. If you give it a try, and want to enter me as a referrer, my email is LdySaphyreATsofthomeDOTnet (I'm spelling it out so that the spambots don't catch me). I think I get a free month or something. It's fine if you don't though :)

Hugs to those who need 'em, those who want 'em, and those who don't run away quickly enough

* The song that's playing in my head when I wake up.
** I've also had "One is the Loneliest Number" and "Eleanor (gee, I think you're swell)" running through my head as well. Hateful subconscious!

funny, i was thinking to myself that i'd never heard that song, but then a heineken beer commercial came on and changed all of that in one swift, nauseating jolt of advertising.

i have some pretty torturous things in my head some mornings, as well. anything from the grease 2 soundtrack qualifies, or terry jacks' "seasons in the sun".

Yeah, my brain is always latching on to painful music :)

I like dont cha! AND I once woke up to "Who let the dog's out" at 7:00am on the RADIO. I don't know what sicko put that on, but still.

7 am is way too early to let the dogs out.

Sorry about your fight. :-(

I've done my time at JCPenney. I know hell. I'm right there with you.

Better a Final Fantasy midi than some porn video, ne?

I fixed the download problem. Apparently, there were a bunch of things in my download folder that were borked, that the old version of firefox ignored.

Things are getting better all around :)
