What I heard this morning: We found out that a Trader Joe's is coming to San Antonio. Well wuptyfuckingdoo. Everyone is happy about it like it was the Foodie Mecca of grocery stores. Big fucking deal! So what! I don't see any point in shopping in a store that has over priced goods.

David is a messy builder. He likes to leave his toys all over in the courtyard area. So I have to pick them up and put the back in his work shed. That means I have to encounter the Shed God, Marty.
What ticks me off: DAVID'S DRIVING!!!! IT SUCKS!!!!
This past Saturday afternoon, after my anxiety episode, David asked if I would like to take a ride with him to San Antonio. Of coarse I wasn't too sure if I should go but I decided I needed to get out and do this again. I asked him why and he said he wanted to take the LCD TV to get it fixed.
The sucker is a monster and it barely fit into the back seat of my car. When we bought it, we had David's truck to bring it home. Anywho, David drove to the place and we dropped it off for repairs. It was in a mini mall but there just happened to be a ginormous mall next to it. So we were leaving and David is driving around the mall and having to stop at every stinking stop sign.
I asked him if there was anywhere in particular he was thinking of going to.He said he had to get to an access road which he just happened to be skirting in the mall. Yeppers. I said is that the road you are looking for, pointing to his left. He said he didn't think so.
SOOOOO!! fourteen stop signs later we turned right onto that very road. I just gave him a very long hot stare and didn't say a word. He said
We were driving along and I asked him why he puts his hands on the very top of the steering wheel. It causes the car to jerk side to side and he has no control. He said he liked it that way. Mmkay I shut up, jerking side to side. After five minutes, I said to pull the car over and let me drive the rest of the way home. He said why, you don't like my driving? Then he said he has never been in an accident in his whole life. At that time we were passing an accident scene. I blurted out that there was always the first time. Besides, I was getting sea sick. Of course he drove the rest of the way home. I didn't talk to him until Sunday morning.
Mental note * Always grab the car keys first or stay home.
What I'm reading: Life Support: Three Nurses on the Front Lines(Culture and Politics of Health Care Work) by Suzanne Gordon. It's basically about three nurses that work at Boston's Beth Israel Hospital. The shit they have to put up with. How they are trying to make it better for other nurses coming into the field by educating doctors about what nursing really is.
When I started reading this book, it reminded me of not only what nurses have to put up with the doctors. But the fact that other health care workers including nurses get no respect from doctors. Reading this book made me realize that it's a shame the way they are treated. I really recommend that you read this book. It will make you want to hug a nurse.
What's for dinner: Since the weather is all grey and rainy out. I think we'll have a salad and Manwiches. David went crazy when I said that I was making this tonight. The man was hoping for sloppy joe's and I love Manwiches so ....
