A fun-filled weekend of suck.

I need to vent a bit. So, a list:

Ways in Which Today Sucks

  • Gave the cat a bath last night (bad enough). Made the mistake of attempting to blow-dry her off, at which point she used my hand and wrist as a launching pad. FUCKING OW.
  • Slept like crap last night due to my hand being comparable to coleslaw-ready cabbage.
  • We're getting the puppy from petfinder.com. This is, by itself, adorable news. However -
  • I have no idea how to deal with a puppy. Really, no clue. I wasn't anticipating having to find out quite so quickly, either, or under such busy circumstances.
  • Semi-unexpectedly, we have to attend a funeral on Monday of next week, and do travel/wake-type things on Sunday. This means two things:

    • We have to pick up the puppy on Saturday, as Sunday is now out.
    • We'll have to bring the puppy with us, which means finding a pet-friendly hotel.
    • It probably does not mean that the next few nights will be filled with calm, unbroken sleep.
    • Puppy on Saturday means no eagerly-anticipated RenFaire. Bloody hell.

  • I really loathe funerals. A lot.
  • My desktop computer died last night. Probably permanently- I am hoping it's the motherboard, not the hard drives. Please, if you're a god and there's internet in whatever sort of existence you inhabit, thus enabling you to be reading this: let it not be the hard drives.
  • Verizon seems to think it's funny to keep charging my HSBC account even after I've switched which account it uses. It even kept charging after I turned off auto-bill pay entirely. This is about as not-amusing as it comes, as I can't close out that account until they stop charging shit to it! The bank is being awesome and waiving the $35 overdraft fees, but damn, I really want that account closed so this can't keep happening.
  • Yeast infection. 'nuff said.

Have been looking into Dell XPSs (no comments on the irony of the Homebrew Zealot looking at prebuilts, please - I'm beating myself up enough as it is). Nice-looking, but more expensive than I really want to seriously contemplate right now. Can I just say that responsibility SUCKS, and I hate not having spare cash?

All I want to do is go home and sleep, and there are two and a half hours left here. :(
