all types of plumbing anger

can't go two days without updating the journal, the sky might fall out.

Unfortunatly I'm having an "unhappy" week, so it seems. My period started today and it's really hard to get work done when you're crampy, sitting in a chair in front of a computer is the worst thing to be doing. In school I'd go down the hall and bug my neighbors about it, but at work I am in No Female Contact zone. Seriously, I go weeks without talking to another woman. So I just suffer in silence. Get up and walk around, go to the spotless women's restrooms to splash cool water in my face and look at how tired I look.

I didn't sleep much last night. I had a bad dream, I was in an airplane and the back half of it was missing, just a huge hole, so we landed on a freeway. I felt safe when we landed so I took my seat belt off. Then we saw a pileup ahead... tons of cars all wrecked, and we swerved off to avoid them and there were trees and I knew that if I stayed in the airplane I'd get thrown out. So I jumped out, and wrapped my arms around a tree trunk, and that's where the paramedics and such found me. I didn't know where the airplane even was anymore. I don't know what that means.

So tonight I went to Target for some feminine products and these plastic drawers they had on sale, I'm still on this whole organization kick. And I bought a shower head! Very exciting, it's got one of those hoses so you can really get the bird aquarium clean and stuff. But when I got home I realized that I didn't have a tool to get the old shower head off... I really need a type of wrench, and I can see it in my head, but I don't know what it's called. The fact that I don't know what it's called really depresses me. It's the kind of thing Dad would know. And Dave would know. And hell, EVERY guy at work would know. It's sort of an evil looking tool, works for a range of widths, goes on plumbing fittings so you can put a lot of torque on them? But it's not a torque wrench, it's open... crap, forget it. All I know is that I'll have to buy one... that's be great. I'm frustrated. I hate feeling like an idiot more than anything in the world.

I'm really happy with my website, really happy about finishing the dress I was working on, really happy about having lots of time to get all these things done this week... I'm just not really happy. Give me a few days.
