I got up at 6:30 this morning to drive the 10 miles or so to Wally World to buy a new CD player for work, the new Wolfmother CD and a new alarm clock for home. My Cd player that is relatively new, doesn't always play all of my burned CDs. The annoying and important part of the clock stopped working. You know, the part that makes that gawd-awful noise first thing in the morning....yeah... it doesn't make that noise anymore. Wolfmother just kicks ass.. 'nuff said.
So, instead of playing CoD4 (see my last post) I got up at 6:30 showered, dressed and drove to Wally World. All the while, talking to myself, reasoning that "Dammit I deserve these things!" As I get closer, I begin talking myself OUT of these things. If anyone were to look in the car, they would surely think I had gone mad, arguing and yelling at myself in the mirror. By the time I got there, I had talked myself out of it ALL.
I DON'T need a new CD player, there is always the only rock station Orlando has.. but it sucks. Besides if I beat on the CD player long enough, it WILL eventually play the Cds. Besides, Christmas is coming, money's tight; why not let someone get it for me? I don't need a new alarm clock; all of my animals as well as my internal clock usually wake be up WAY before I have to be up in the morning. Besides, once someone buys me the new player for Christmas hint hint the player I have here has an alarm that actually works, so I can just replace it. I don't need the new Wolfmother CD, again, Christmas is coming and everyone in my family loves that band so surely someone will get it.
So there I am 7:06 at the turn lane for Wally World. I turn in, then pull into the Chick-Fil-A parking lot instead; it's right next to Wally World. I place my order, get my total: $6.66. I pull around to the window (HA! I typed 'winder' first... damn Southern drawl) and told the girl there was a problem with my total. She thought she did something wrong a reassured me it was correct. I said, "Oh I don't doubt that, but its 666. So I had her put on another coffee just to change the total. On my drive back I noticed the full or almost full moon in the sky.. good thing I had her change that total.
So essentially, I got up at 6:30am JUST to go to Chick-Fil-A get a 666 number and see that it was full moon.. Dammit I should have stayed in bed.
