I tried to buy wine this morning. Operative word being "tried."

I swung by Whole Foods after hitting the gym, picked the bottle off the shelf and tucked it amongst my milk and orange juice. A clerk approached me immediately.

Clerk: Excuse me, ma'am. According to North Carolina law, you can't buy wine before noon on Sunday.

Me: (try to imagine my brow furrowing and mouth slightly agape) Really?

Clerk: That's right, ma'am.

Me: Why?

Clerk: Old blue laws.

Me: But why?

Clerk: Left over Christian ordinances. Still on the books, I guess.

Me: But they're the only ones actually DRINKING wine before noon on Sundays!

Clerk: I'm sorry, ma'am.

Whole Foods was also out of chocolate. So here I am. Man-less, wine-less, and without chocolate. And one of my dates just cancelled on me.

I hate this day.

I *soooooo* needed this!!!!!!!

my life is currently shitting the bed...
I'm pretty sure I'm clinically depressed... I'm 'in the wings' (so to speak) waiting on another heart catherization (long story)... there's a *huge* chance that we'll be moving fuckin again because of roommate insanity (another huge long story of out of frying pan into fire)... and I'm cowering in our room (all three of us are sharing a 12'x14' bedroom!) to avoid the next stupid drama fight with the roommates.

so I have been checking up on my friends recent posts... and yours recent one (stealth. or not.) reminded me that I haven't checked up on your stuff in ages (cause it's so easy to just lie on the couch/bed and sleep my way through this all)... so I started reading backwards.
So uhm... I'm a shit for not keeping up on what's going on in your life. I'm sorry. I can't even promise I'll do better (I'm still having whole days of inability to function) because I'm afraid to make a promise that I may not keep. so uhm... why manless? (if you've already posted that one, I haven't read that far back yet)

"but they're the only ones actually DRINKING before noon on Sundays!"
OMG too friggin funny (and why that didn't occur to me before is hysterical)

Hey Lisa! I'm actually in the process of writing you a long e-mail explaining Where I Have Been. There's been some major life implosion (as well as some slow, soul-sucking stuff, too) going on. You're not a shit. It's not like I contacted you, either. Let's just try to get through one day at a time.

*hugs*
