As my weekdays are chock full of school, work, homework and hopefully sleeping, I do very little in terms of household upkeep throughout the week. The result is usually of little consequence — clutter around the floor, but nothing too lethal — except when I try to cook something messy in the middle of week and leave a horrific mess in the sink. This particular MessWad involves something with a cheesey sauce, most of the skillets, and many spoons. It has been sitting there for three days. Pray for me.
WHIRLING OFF THE AXIS OF EVIL
Exactly one week ago yesterday I looked online at my bank statement, and nearly began to hemorrhage when I noticed there was fraudulent activity on my card. About $141.82 worth of fraudulent activity, which may not be considered large-scale by your means, but is to me, as a college student with a rent check that had still not entirely been processed. I mildly panicked though it was mostly a hiccup of frustration, since something similar happened to me when we were on vacation this summer. (Though that was through paypal and this had no discernable source, which is still weighing slightly on my frustration list.) I scrambled to recover, made a spectacle of myself in the process (most notably falling and skinning both knees when I was running in a blind rage to get my cell phone from the car,) got very angry and also had to deal with several incompetent banking personally over the weekend, but I think everything for the most part is stabilized. I haven’t seen the funds back yet (I am supposed to soon, and I cringe to think of the phone calls I will have to make if it DOESN’T show up by Monday,) but the card was canceled, the account is being monitored, and copious amounts of paperwork have been submitted.
The poison fumes of anguish were alleviated slightly last Saturday when I went to see a friend of mine in Fort Collins. It was really great. We hung out at this coffee shop/book store in old town that used to be a clothing store, so there are all these random cool nooks that used to be dressing rooms. We poked around at some clothing shops, bought sperm magnets, she treated me to Mongolian barbecue, and then went to her place to talk and talk and talk.
