|Bits from the weekend

In an attempt to do a poo-free post (although Percy is doing much better, if not back to normal), I give you:|
A village in China is under quarantine due to pneumonic plague. That's what a lot of scientists think may have been what wiped out much of the population of Europe, as opposed to its flashier cousin, bubonic plague. My Chinese glove supplier gave me a box of respiratory masks as a "gift" last week when they were in for a visit. Suddenly, my inner conspiracy theorist has woken up. They've been in China recently...gah! I'm going to go wash my hands.
I despair of ever being a fashionista, but I have at least broken one of their secret codes. I now realize that "high waisted" in regards to shapers, hose and other undergarments actually means "thick roll of spandex/latex/material all bunched around your waist". Ha! I'll never fall for it again, you anorexic bitches!
Someone is sucking hours out of my day while I'm not looking. When the weekend starts, I have two full days to get stuff done. Somehow, when I am OTHERWISE DISTRACTED suddenly I have two hours. What the hell? I want them back.
Look, I don't KNOW how to just "show up and enjoy myself" at a party. It makes me uncomfortable, at least until I've had several adult beverages. Give me something to do -- take this box and put it on the front steps and move the box that's on the front step to the back step -- it calms me. Of course, so does a beer, so give me a chore that can be performed one handed and we both win.
