It started off with a trip to the dentist for the regular cleaning. And that? THAT was the highlight of my day. Now, I actually don't dislike the dentist, or cleanings. I sit back, and do my duty to get it over with. Still, it's the bloody dentist, right?
Current status with my health care means I have to pay for my visits. Also fine, I was expecting that...
But wait! We want to use today to take x-rays! AND the head dentist wants to say hi! That will be an extra hundred dollars! That was a proverbial kick in the teeth, but pretty much a sigh and muddle through it moment.
Then I get home, and Flickr wants me to renew my account. Not a lot of money, but with everything else, it came to over 200 dollars just evaporating in the span of 30 minutes.
I am TRYING to save up money to take a trip to Texas next year. And the universe is NOT co-operating on this front, damnit. Every step forward seems to come with a massive cover charge.
Oh but wait, there's more. I decided to then take some time and watch some tv to unwind. Fair enough, right? I've bloody earned it.
But I turned on the tv and the DVR gives me a hard drive failure warning. So that has to be replaced. I honestly don't know what pisses me off more; the act of having to get the thing replaced, or ALL the shows I've lost. I won't be bothering with Elementary or 666 Park Avenue, or a few other shows I never even got a chance to start, now. Oh well.
Actually wait, I lost Dexter's new season. THAT pisses me off. I literally scared people when I realised that and let out a loud cursing streak.
In the grand scheme of things, all this shit is pretty small stuff, and doesn't compare to any real problems, but fuck me, it just KEPT PILING ON. I was absolutely *crushed* and defeated before it was fucking NOON on Monday.
And it took me two whole days to even get up to writing about it.
