personal hell

I just got back from the Verizon Store.

It took me 45 minutes to pay my bill and have my phone fixed.

Oh, wait. It only took 10 minutes to pay my bill and have my phone fixed (JJ had reset the phone to Voicesignals - and I couldn't get them to turn off). The other 35 were spent watching five or six employees wander aimlessly throughout the store - while JJ threw a monster screaming tantrum because I wouldn't let him play with all of the (germ covered) display phones.

So, that was pretty much awesome.

oh, oprah

Biggest surprise of my day: I am actually enjoying Oprah's interview with Star Jones.


But I have a theory. We all know that Oprah has a very public struggle with her weight (I'm with you there Oprah, just not quite as public). In the beginning of the year she had her big "I love Bob Greene" show, and since then all's been sort of quiet on the Bob front. Lately though, we have seen a heck of a lot of shows about the morbidly obese. Much skyping-in of the 400+ club. And Ruby. And Discovery Health documentaries. And now Starr and her admissions of gastric bypass.

I think Oprah is warming us up for her own medical intervention.


it's a wooden spoon/calculator kind of day. :)
