Dammit. I need to go to bed. I want to go to bed. I might've could've gotten to bed on time tonight. But NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. The ***** washing machine is acting up again and holding my soapy wet clothes hostage. Grrr.

Note to self: Never use the Heavy Soil cycle again. It often gives me problems.

And while I'm ranting anyway.

What is it with people who have these long boring-sounding telephone conversations while sitting on the toilet in one of the stalls in the bathroom at work?

And what is it with people who don't turn off or silence their cellphones in a movie theater, with the reasoning, "Noone is going to call me." And yet someone else just called them. "They're the only person who would call me, and I told them I'm at the movies. So they won't call again." Oh, really, you're sure about that? I know that person, and I'm not sure that they won't call again. I suppose you never get calls from people who dialed the wrong number, either? No one ever calls you in the evening, really? Why can't you follow the simple courteous rule of silencing your phone? Why should I have to be slightly anxious, worrying that your phone is going to ring after the movie starts? Because you're one of THOSE PEOPLE who are too rude and inconsiderate and selfish to turn off their phones. Because you're too **** lazy to press a **** little button on your phone!

And it's not reasonable to be handled a 32 oz drink when you order a "small"!!! 32 oz is not small.

And ouch **** I just **** hurt my **** hands hitting the **** washer. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

Struggled with washing machine. Finally got clothes successfully rinsed and spun dry around 2:15am. Hung them up to dry. Decided I need to buy a new washing machine. Went to bed at 2:30am. Had a hard time falling asleep, even though I had been very tired around midnight.

I set my alarm for 9am, but woke up before 8 and couldn't fall back asleep. Got up, washed, dressed.
Dialed in to 2 Skype meetings for work, then drove to work. Uneventful day at the office.
Around 4:30pm, Qiao called to say the dogs had both gotten out of the yard, and he was walking around looking, but couldn't find them. That was unusual, because all the other times they've gotten out, we've found them right away.
So I left work early to help him look. As I was driving up his driveway, Zorro came ambling out of the bushes from the neighbor's yard. Shortly thereafter, Serena was found a few houses away - a kind neighbor had found them both sitting in the street, but had only managed to coax Serena into her yard, for safety.

Then I found the spot were Serena had dug out under the fence, and reinforced it. (Even though there are still many other spots that need reinforcing, which will require at least a couple more boxes of 12" metal stakes (and hopefully not more fine-mesh fencing too)).

Then I found out that Zorro had gotten herself all muddy. So we drove them to my house so I could give them both a "bath" (with hose and bucket of soapy water) quickly before it got dark.

Now it's 8pm, and I shall do 2 more hours of work from home, to make up for leaving work early.
