I wake up and my jaw aches

I just got sent home from work. I'm not completely sure, but I think I got dumped via email. That'll teach me to check my email when I'm at work -- worst fifteen minute break ever.

So then I got all weepy and it was remarkably bad timing as the HR Manager and the General Manager were both in the store ... luckily, there was sympathy there, but ya, I feel like a giant dork for making a scene.

Of course, not that I'd want to not be the kind of person who wears my heart on my sleeve ... there's a reason that I love Dorothy Parker, and it's got just about everything to do with the line "I wore my heart like a wet, red stain."

Anyway, I'm home, and I think I'm going back to bed now. Shout out to qthebrave who was wondering yesterday if Mercury was in retrograde or something. Here's hoping she's right.

FYI, My subject line is from ani difranco's song "Tis of Thee." For some reason, I can't get this part out of my head today:

I hold on hard
to something
between my teeth
when I'm sleeping
and I wake up
and my jaw aches
and the Earth
is full of earthquakes ...

Email? That sounds pretty shitty. You have my sympathies.

Bed sounds like a good place to be.

Dumped via e-mail? That sucks. Tell me who did this and I will spank them with a two-by-four.

Via e-mail.

Well, bed didn't work out so well, so now I'm preparing to try the other thing that sometimes helps: the bathtub. Perhaps that will do some good.

Ya. Your thoughts about thinking you were "on the long-term-plan" are kind of resonating with me now as well.
