Senseless Ramblings

Compound Troubles

leave a comment »

As if it wasn’t enough that my arms feel like Jell-O, I have to deal with another irritating issue.  The night before last and half-way through yesterday it snowed.  Of course this was wonderful at said moment because I was planning to skip work and watch the inauguration festivities on tv and comment with some friends on the http://www.cnn.com/live jumpoff with Facebook.

Well, when I was driving home from the gym last night, I noticed that my oil light came on.  Very strange.  This morning I warmed my car up, preparing to head to lab.  Things didn’t flow as smoothly as I would have liked.  As I drove towards school, the main thing I noticed was my car…shaking.  ::Blank Stare::  What the thunder?  I did what any female in my position would do – I called my Dad.

So now I’m sitting here at the Wal-Mart Automotive Center.  Hang me please.

A certified goon – probably LaTarian’s big sister – just walked up and sat down at the bench near me.  I was talking on my cell phone (quietly) and working on this entry when she whips out her Multimedia Boombox Cell Phone and plays Chris Brown’s “Take You Down” out loud.  No earbuds, no naaaahthing.  And then you have the gall to turn the volume up.  I politely gave her a glaring stare.  You think it bothered this trollop?  Not at all.  Then I looked over and saw exactly what was wrong.  I mistook her for LaTarian’s older sister when she is CLEARLY Eli Porter’s fam.  She was real dead about the eyes.  Ignorance officially excused. Now I am typing to a hoodrat’s playlist and have the pleasure of hearing Plies – Please Excuse My Hands.  I am so tempted to take a photo with MacBook.  Oh, if only this thing had a camera on the back [inside the apple logo…wouldn’t that be hot?] and I wouldn’t have to turn the laptop completely around…

She is checking out. Whew!  I feel like Oprah Winfrey in The Color Purple.
“And when I seen’d you, I knew there was a GOD!”

These two Caucasian ladies have come in with her kids

Now that my eyes and ears can breathe a sigh of relief.. *le sigh*
On to other compound trouble news.
My beloved pink iPod nano – the old school one with the aluminum… has died.  This morning, I went to plug it up to my speakers to get my day started.  A Tribe Called Quest is forever implanted on the screen at 0:00.  I pressed play, Menu, the center button and all of that – nothing helped.  Rest In Peace would probably be best suited here.  But I’m trying to resuscitate her.  Pink Panther – hold on.
How will I ever make it through my cardio warm up, if I cannot have Just Fine or Single Ladies blaring into my ear drum? iPod guilty pleasure? Trina.  I know, i know…
