Getting through it

Beginning to think that it'll take electric shocks to get me out of bed early, as I've intended to. I have the desire, but not the commitment. So I run late again.

Don't think today will be a typical Thursday. With the short workweek, I know Suzanne will be in, and I suspect Tommy will be as well. Thursdays have been my fortress of solitude, but probably not today. I'd most likely end up slacking too much anyway.

Enjoying my haircut. I don't like having to think about my hair, so I just eliminate 90% of it. Always happy to have one less thing.

I watch too much TV. I didn't say I would change, just that I watch too much. Could be sucking the life out of me, but not sure if it is cause or effect (which probably doesn't matter in the final analysis).

The garbage truck is being relatively quiet this morning. That's going to make me resent the loud ones even more.

I don't understand wearing visors at all, and I certainly can't abide wearing them backward/backwards (which? my English minor fails me sometimes...). Visors and fanny packs should be limited to retirement communities.

I don't understand wearing visors at all, and I certainly can't abide wearing them backward/backwards (which? my English minor fails me sometimes...). Visors and fanny packs should be limited to retirement communities.

The only good I can see for visors is if you wear 'em with a raincoat when it's pouring out and you need to do work. Most are plastic, and usually the hood of the raincoat isn't enough to keep rain out of your eyes without obscuring your visibility. Pull up the hood, stick on a visor, and you're good to go.

As far as wearing them when it's sunny...what's the point? Down here (Texas) if you're outside in the sun, you better wear a full-cap of some kind to keep it off your head or you can get heatstroke in the summer. A visor won't do jack.

As far as fanny packs go, they've got limited uses. I find them infinitely useful when I go to amusement parks -- better than purses. Some people wear them because, hmm, for example, my boyfriend? He's a diabetic, and when he goes out, he has to keep his insulin and glucose monitor with him, and naturally, being a guy, he can't carry a purse, and a backpack's too big and bulky, so that's why he uses one. They're good for guys who *have* to have something to carry things in, or for women who are in a situation where carrying a purse could result in it stolen or lost too easily or get in the way.

Yes, they have their uses. Are they attractive? Not really. I never got overly fond of mine. (But I'll start using one again if I ever get a licence to carry a handgun. I found a really sweet holster that's a hidden panel in a fanny pouch) I think my biggest prejudice against 'em is the name. (how tacky can "fanny pouch" get?!)
For those exceptional cases (particularly J's), let's consider them utility belts. :)
