*sigh* I have no idea why these places can't make it easier, but I suppose they are trying to improve things with all the e-services they're starting to offer. On the bright side, the employees there were a ton nicer and more competent than I've dealt with in the past. Couple that with the fact that its 15 minutes away from home and they've got a repeat client.
Lameness #1: I just saw the commercial for "Invasion". Yet another cheap knock-off of an excellent 70's horror flick. Seriously, no one can beat Donald Sutherland, Karen Allen, and my beloved Leonard Nimoy in that flick. Lame.
Lameness #2: Any commercial for Restless Legs Syndrome. Seriously, I just saw them list "Creepy crawlies", "pins and needles" and "urge to move" as legit symptoms and now they're hocking drugs for it. Unbelievable. I firmly agree with Alan Shore's diatribe about America's tendency to "sell sickness". Keep an eye out for a commercial for Mirapex and you'll know what I mean. Apparently you're supposed to notify the doctor if you feel "an intense urge to gamble, or other sexual urges". Fantastic! A drug that makes me want to have sex and gamble! Word up!
All lameness aside, I feel the surge in my blood that tells me autumn is coming. I drive past my high school and I see the cheerleaders and football players gearing for the new season, the days are getting shorter, and the leaves are starting to turn and fall. I love fall. It would take pages and pages of posts for me to list all the reasons why I love fall, but its safe to say that I never feel more alive than in fall. My wardrobe is also far superior for fall. ;^) Maybe its the cool weather. Maybe its the years and years of beautiful memories of the start of school ingrained into my mind. Its ironic that a season that is usually characterized as the harbinger of winter, a season of decay, a descent into cold weather and darker days can be the herald of so many beginnings.
I love autumn. I can feel it coming too. Des violons de l'automne.
Snape loves autumn too! =^)
