Me pink

Ugh. So AOL is being all weird today ... telling me I have no new mail (which I know isn't true), or telling me on one screen that I have four new messages, and, on another screen, that I have sixteen new messages.

It's quite annoying.

lilostitch was chiding me for still having AOL at all, and I know that she's right.

At any rate, I wanted to publicly repost my quitmeter (yet again), as well as to publicly state that I am full aware that I am a giant idiot for ever starting smoking, and, you know, for starting up time and time again. It's clearly been a struggle for me. I'm working on it.

So far, today, I'm doing well. Then again, so far, today, I haven't left the house yet.

What shall I say about the ridiculousness that has been today?

Well, I think I should talk about the radio, actually.

At work, we have satellite radio. And somehow, someone discovered that they have a Halloween station. We have, of course, been listening to this station nonstop ever since. Some of the stuff is what you'd expect: "Boris the Spider," "Thriller," The Theme from "The X-Files" no less than twice on any given day. Some of the stuff makes no sense to anyone, like The B-52s "Rock Lobster" (um, is lobster a traditional animal associated with Halloween? Really?). And then there are those gems, those songs that you never thought you'd be fortunate enough to hear at work ...

Yes folks, today they played "The Time Warp."

By the end of it, momacress and I were standing at the front of the store, taking a jump to the left (and a step to the ri-i-i-i-i-ight). Coconut Joe was chiding us for being giant geeks, and we so did NOT care.

Because ladies and gentlemen, today at work I got to do the fucking Time Warp. It just doesn't get any better than that.
