Inconsequential Rants and Random Stuff

I know that, really, I don’t have much in my life that is worthy of complaint. Oh sure, I don’t have the “real” house with the backyard, my car is old, my husband doesn’t do housework, and I’d really like to lose those last 20 damn pounds. But I am healthy, I have a good job, we *do* own our home, and there is a lot in my life for which I am thankful. Some days, though, I am just cantankerous I guess, and I have a couple rants I need to make:

1. To the Panera sample hander-outer who walked by my table *three* times: you suck. I wanted to try the frozen tasty coffee-looking beverage too.
2. To the jerk who, when there were 12 parking spots in the row, had to park their giant hummer in the spot next to me, so close to my car that I couldn’t get in it: you REALLY suck. I hope the $3/gallon gas really makes you hate that damn atrocity of a vehicle.

Okay, I know, both rants are petty and stupid, but for some reason I was feeling cranky at lunchtime. I do have something happy to post, though. I had gone to a toy store at lunch to see if they had the Lego Hogwarts Castle for Luke’s “Santa” present. They did, but it was $125 and the box was pretty beat up. So, I went on ebay, and found one in perfect, unopened condition, for $94 including shipping. That’s $40 less than if I’s bought the one at the toy store (after tax). Yay! Luke really wants the Harry Potter legos but they don’t make most of them anymore. So far I’ve found: Hogwart’s Castle, Hogwart’s Express, Hagrid’s Hut, and Draco’s Encounter with Buckbeak. I’m planning to hunt down as many as I can and hide them in the closet until Christmas, birthday(s), etc. I figure if he outgrows it (unlikely, since he’s not yet 5) or gets tired of them I can re-sell them further down the road. I can’t wait to see his happy little face at Christmas. We went to Legoland yesterday and in the “tent sale” shop they had Lupin’s Classroom set for $10 (originally $20, which is the minimum I’ve seen it go for on ebay). I caved and let him get it and he was just in heaven. We even got to leave before Legoland closed since he wanted to go play with it. Yay!! I love having season passes.

Well, I have to attend a 1pm meeting. 1pm meetings suck. I don’t think meetings should be scheduled between 11:30-1 at all; too close to lunchtime. I’m tempted to not show up until 1:30 on principle. Heck, half the people will be late anyway and it’s just a waste of time to sit around. Gosh what has gotten into me today? Everything is annoying me for some reason.

    Ugh! I hate it when people HAVE to park right next to you, so close that you can’t get inside your own car! I get that sometimes in my apartment parking lot, which is why I tend to park across the street more often than not. Yes, there are bigger things going on in the world, but this is still annoying no matter what’s up 🙂

    Now, if you think like me, that $40 you saved can be spent on stash! :)–>
