You've got a nerve to be asking a favor*

Random Friday

  • Half the time during the week, I have one of those commutes where if I leave by 6:30am, it takes me about 20 minutes to get to work, but if I leave at 6:40 it takes about an hour (the other half of the week it takes me 2 minutes).
  • When it rains or snows, it takes me about an hour no matter what time I leave.
  • I left super late today, and it was snowing. Only took me 25 minutes. I’m still in a bit of shock.
  • It was raining last night, and I did the trash run anyways. I am so ridiculously sore today. I definitely need to start lifting again. I’m weak!
  • There was an older guy walking in the rain on the trail at the same I was running. He was weird. He had on his big trench coat and golf umbrella and was kind of skipping along. He gave me a “Good for you!” when he walked (skipped?) past me doing my push-ups. Thanks strange guy!
  • I am so sore today. I know I mentioned this earlier, but it’s worth repeating. It kind of hurt to turn the steering wheel this morning (not like excessively hurting, but a definite…oh hello there muscle I haven’t used in a while).
  • I am so irritated with my insurance company right now. I’m STILL waiting for a check that they supposedly mailed two weeks ago. When I called to complain, they were the most unhelpful “help” ever. They have cancelled the first check and sent another one.
  • Also sent by mail. Which means, who knows how long it will take to get here. I tried to make them overnight it (I even offered to pay for the cost of shipping it overnight), and I was told they don’t have the “technology” to do this
  • Seriously? You don’t have an envelope and a phone to call Fedex? I feel there is something wrong with that statement.
  • So, I still can’t pick up my car (this check is required to be signed by the repair shop and me so I can’t even pay it with my money and then cash the check when it arrives). And don’t even get me started on why they’re mailing it to me and not the repair shop. Ooooh…I’m pissed.
  • However, I don’t want to end my Friday post on a bad note. So…happy news. Hmmm…
  • I’m hanging out JH tomorrow night in New B to see my friend’s boyfriend’s band play. Super fun. :-)
Have a great weekend everyone!

*The Walkmen (as suggested by Mike when I asked for a song to use...I thought the opening line kind of fit).

Ugh - I hope you get your insurance snafu taken care of soon. The day of J's car accident, his bank got bought out by another bank - how convenient! Naturally, the insurance company asked the new bank to supply the final amount due so they could pay off the loan, and the new bank kept not doing it.

We presume they were so busy calling J. 3-4 times A DAY to wonder why he hadn't paid his payment (that the insurance company was going to do as soon as they got written confirmation of the amount). They even called him on Sunday nights! I think he *finally* got it straightened out, but he seriously received about 30 phone calls from them in the meantime.
