notmypresident: (Dark Victory)
It's another one of those I don't wanna do a fucking thing days.  It started when I woke up early and couldn't get back to sleep.  After almost a half century, you'd think I'd have learned that tossing and turning while trying to get back to sleep is like spitting into the wind.  And to add insult to the injury, my thoughts usually turn to the dark, depressing variety during said tossing and turning.  By the time I finally roust myself from the bed, I'm in a shitty mood.

Like now.

I'm nervous (and a little scared) about a two-day depo that starts tomorrow.  It's been a couple of weeks since I've been on any meaningful job and even longer since I've been to an all day.  The cool part of this business is that one can earn the equivalent of several weeks' pay on a job like this; the not-so-cool part is that it can be extremely taxing.  Despite my fears, here's hoping that it doesn't cancel.

After being a good boy yesterday by not ordering something from Amazon.com, I broke down late last night and clicked on the "Place Your Order" button.  It's true that now is not the best time for buying something like a KitchenAid 5-quart mixer; it's also true that the deal being offered on this particular model was, literally, too good to miss.  With free shipping, two discounts, and no sales tax, I'll end up paying $149 for an item that typically (even on the Internet) sells for $250 and up (before shipping).  This was brought on by the fact that the vast majority of baking equipment in the house belongs to my roommate.  Since I've had a growing feeling of late that he will finally be moving out sometime soon, I need to start acquiring items that won't be here once he's gone.  And I've fallen in love with his KitchenAid, making this special deal too good to pass up.

Time for the treadmill, much as I'm not in the mood.  Ugh.  But I can't let [livejournal.com profile] fuzzygruf outshine me, can I? 
And the Favorite Bear of the Moment isn't really my "type," though I wouldn't exactly ask him to leave if I found him eating crackers in bed...
