I Like Wednesdays

I like Wednesdays. Not as much as I like Thursdays but still, they are good as days of the week go. Half way to the weekend. Today is going to be a good day. I can feel it.

The other day I had to call my bank. Supposedly, my tax return was deposited on Feb. 25th but no such credit has shown in my account. I double checked my bank statement and the tax form I filed. Wouldn't it be just like me if I had everything perfect except for the damned routing number? But all was correct so I called my bank. Those poor bastards at Bank of America are forced to answer the phone saying, "How may I delight you with excellent customer service?" I would just want to shoot myself if I had to say such a thing over and over, day in and day out. Seriously, just put the gun to my head already.

Anyhow, I digress. I waited on hold for 25 minutes listening to the melodic sounds of classical music that practically put me to sleep. Hey, it'd been a long day on the job, ok? Maybe the IRS is trying to calm the caller so that they don't get on the line with an irrate person? Turns out that the IRS tried to deposit the check but it got bounced back which means the check is in the mail. At least now I know the money is on its way. And I think IRS folks have gotten a bad rap cuz the lady who helped me was perfectly pleasant. I'd go so far as to say she could work at Bank of America- you know, delighting people with excellent customer service all day long. ;)

Unrelated Side Note: I noticed that the 76 gas stations have changed their color scheme from orange to red. Does this change have something to do with Bush's terror alert system? Hmmm...maybe I am a conspiracy theorist after all?

Another Unrelated Side Note: Mario Vasquez is yummy. I also think Bo Bice (which is just a fun name to say, admit it)has something about him. What does it say about me that the two guys I like best on AI are so completely opposite? I mean, the long haired rocker dude and the short hat-wearing Puerto Rican fella. I have no "type" I guess. The girls pretty much suck this year. Well except for Nadia and her big ol' hair-do. Uh huh!

Things I like today:
Walking to work in the sunshine. Bananas and peanut butter. Angelou sitting on the porch like a good pup. Deep breaths. Freckles and laugh lines. Morning tea. Pink shoes. Hillz, Supple & Dokey and our new goal. Lunch with Hummingbird. And . . .You.
