An Observation

The Farm Boy (who is not really a farm boy) is watching Stop-Loss.

All I have to say is...

Ryan Phillipe's accent is truly awful. (I have lots of friends who live all over Texas, and not a one of them speaks like that!)

That is all.

Another Sucky Thing

Why it sucks to be me, Reason #4232101

Doctor took me off birth control pills. Because of a surgical decision I made in my 20s, birth control wasn't really necessary (took them for other health reasons). 

Yay! I actually feel better! (this is a good thing... a very good thing!)

Holy crap! I'm breaking out like a 16 year old boy working the fryer at McDonald's! (this is a bad thing!)

Dear Whoever Cares, I'm 41 years old. I do not need zits on my chin. Thanks for listening.

Wow. 2 posts in one day. Someone please check the temperature in hell.

Just because I don't want to be so cryptic, and because I also haven't checked my email in months:

1. I'm okay. Kind of.
2. Doctors still don't know what the hell is wrong with me, but they have ruled out a few things already.
3. Some days are really good. Some days... not so much.
4. My Farm Boy (husband for those who don't remember his nickname) has the patience of a saint.
5. I really miss my Bloggy Friends.

I'm not around these parts much. Some of it is because my new job keeps me really busy. Extremely HAPPY, but busy.

And well, the rest is that I try to get as much rest as I can. I used to be able to stay up until all hours of the night blogging and reading other blogs... now I'm usually in bed by 9:00 or 10:00.

Overall, things are good in life. Now if we could just get this ONE thing resolved, life would be even better.

Miss you guys. :-(

Flying the Unfriendly Skies

Dear Airlines:

If you continue to charge passengers out the wazoo for travel, they will no longer fly. I understand you're looking for more revenue sources, but when people opt for a train or their cars instead of flying, YOU ARE GOING TO LOSE EVEN MORE REVENUE. Capiche?

Fine. Charge for checked baggage. I don't care. But carry-on luggage too? And maybe even the sad excuse for a lavatory? Ridiculous. I call B.S.

You want more revenue? Raise your rates. Don't nickel and dime your passengers.

Thanks for listening,
Grumpy Frump
