Bloody Cold....but Friday

Why is it that there's no real warning that the seasons are changing here in NY (or Southern ON for that matter...used to live in Toronto and it was the same way...)? One day it's sunny and 70...the next day it's rainy and 50. No gradual temperature shift...just one or the other, black or white, central air or the furnace. (There's another pet peeve...there is no break from utility bills...it's either a high gas bill for the furnace or a high hydro bill for the AC) The leaves are still green and I'm freezing my ass off when I get out of bed in the morning. As Chris Rock says, "Can't a n**** get a lapdance?" Sheesh...

On a bright note...it is Friday...and a payday at that. Not that there's a lot left after rent, gas, cigarettes, food, etc. But hey...it's a living. I still don't have any plans for the evening...but I'm sure that'll work itself out. And if it doesn't...well...there are those 8 loads of laundry staring at me everytime I look in my closet. Anybody doing anything tonight? lol

Back to actual work for now...maybe more later.

EDIT (9:13am): How scary ARE you guys? lol I may be tempted to head down to Ladycroft's get together.....

Little about me...and how much work suck

Where to begin a journal about my life?

Well....first off...it's not very exciting. I'm a 26 year old business-world working stiff handling claims for a major insurance company here in Buffalo. (No, not Geico...oy..lol) I put in my 8 hours a day, mostly dealing with people who don't take the time to read anything (pet peeve for an English major...) and generally using only 2% of my brain in any given day. I've got all the usual accoutrements that go along with life...rent, car payment, student loans, bills, etc etc. *laugh*

So that kills 40 hours each week....the rest I spent sitting on the couch, playing rugby (wonderfully violent), heading out with friends, drinking, eating, and sleeping.

Like I said...not very exciting (well..except the rugby..lol)...but it's life. I've got good friends, a good family, and live in reasonable comfort.

And really, what else is there?
