This day sucks already.
Fell asleep last night after spending all day setting up the new computer so I didn’t get other shit done (like the open thread last night for example) that I needed to and am behind already. Plus, it’s the dead of winter, but it’s so fucking hot here I’m having to run the A/C.
And I’ve finally got to take the tree down since the needles were audibly falling out last night while I was making dinners for the week. It’s the last of the Christmas stuff I have to put away, and I’m bummed about that since I really didn’t get to enjoy the season this time after looking forward to it all damn year. I don’t understand people who take them down right after Christmas. You paid a bunch of money for it, might as well enjoy them for as long as possible. And for fuck’s sake take them somewhere where they can be recycled or used for artificial reefs. It’s depressing and pisses me off when I see people just throw their trees out on the side of the road for trash collection. Anyway... got a lot to get done today before I fly back to fucking DC tomorrow.
