What The. . . .????

Heck is wrong with some people? Please tell me that in a suburb RIGHT outside Washington DC (repeatedly named the Murder Capitol of the nation) the cops have something better to do than give people tickets WHILE THEY ARE SLEEPING for "parking against the flow of traffic." Again, I was SLEEPING at the time this asshole scooted by in his Crown Vic. As in 2:34 AM!!!! I shit you not. Surely there was someone smoking pot on their usual corner in the back of the neighborhood, or maybe the neighbors on the corner were having one of their usual, noise-violating parties? Well then, I wouldn't be sleeping, now would I? But, I would be parked "against the flow of traffic" because that's the way I've parked my car - the last 3 I've owned, by the way (and I don't get a new one every two years - try 10!) FOREVER! Two days later I am still stunned that some rookie corporal would have nothing better to do at 2:34 AM in Upper Marlboro! Get real. I ain't payin.

And while we're on the subject of "what were they thinkin?" - what's the deal with the Lion Brand Cotton-Ease lately? Is it just me, or does all that stuff look like faded thrift store finds? I went to Michael's thinking I could find some black and red for a "skater-boy" sweater for The Boy, but no way! That stuff's gross! I was very disappointed! So, I got Paton's Shetland Chunky instead. In Black and a tweed-y gray. The red, I had to go with a different brand and I'm too exhausted from stupid cop antics to go look it up.

Oh, that and I was too irritated this afternoon to bother with taking a REAL picture of me in my Tree. I wore it today and it was FABULOUS. Thank goodness something in this world can still go right! For now, I'll try to upload the pics my mother took of me last night, but it's just the sweater itself. I told her she couldn't snap all of me cause I was in my pj's, no makeup, and was suffering greatly from Yoga Head. Not pretty.

ETA: It's now Thursday, and I realized I need to upload software on my computer in order to get the pics my mother took of my Tree onto the computer/blog. I know. I suck! I hope to get to it soon, but I have to clean off my desk first! Yuck!

That sucks! I am so sorry. Up here around Baltimore everyone parks against the flow of traffic. I've never heard of anyone getting a ticket for it.

That ticket is crazy. I can't wait to see your Tree!
