    This has been one of the most overwhelming weeks of my life and I couldn't be more thrilled to have it over. It started last Thursday when I received some news that left my heart shattered in a thousand pieces. Add to that my craptacular car acting up again and virtually no sleep (due to stress of car, finances, and broken heart), and I have been one emotional and physical wreck.

    A couple upsides to this week have been my very positive experience with AAA Auto Repair (see thread for details) and the fact that I surpassed JB in Fantasy Baseball (You're next CS and Wiggum).

    I suspect tomorrow will be hot and sunny, blah, blah, blah...:D

    TOTD: Have you ever gone to a movie, show, or sporting event alone? Or any event that is typically attended in couples or groups?

    I want to go to Saturday night's D'backs game. Everyone I asked to join me has prior plans. How pathetic would I look if I went by myself?

    TOTD: Is there anybody left that doesn't already think you're pathetic, Jen?

    Yep, often. Mr. Snaps and I have divergent tastes in some things and we aren't joined at the hip. Although I am a card-carrying Introvert, I have learned to negotiate these things.

    1. Expect to enjoy whatever it is - don't go with a pessimistic attitude.

    2. Think ahead of time about what possible things you could discuss with a stranger.

    3. Be cute and sweet. It's sexist but it works. :)

    Day thread rule # 487- If the designated day thread poster violates rule #236 and posts the day thread before the scheduled day, NO ONE will seriously reply to that thread until the scheduled day.


    Just an FYI, Ginger... in case you misplaced your manual or something. I can always send you an extra copy.

    Thanks, Ginger. That's exactly what I needed to hear.
