Yesterday I took my car to the dealer for an oil change. Which turned into an oil change, differential fluid change and tire rotation. To which they then tried to turn into brake fluid flush and change and transmission fluid flush and change. They tried scaring me, saying both were dirty and contaminated. I just had a brake job a couple months ago and happened to have the number of the mom and pop joint that did it. I had the manager look up in his records. Yes, they flushed the brake fluid and changed it. He told me there would be no reason for changing it so soon, other than lining the pockets of the dealer. I asked his opinion on the transmission fluid and he said the same thing.
I did more online clothing shopping last Sunday. Every pair of pants I own were way too baggy. Some way way way too baggy. So I splurged and shopped at 3 different sites, one of them Old Navy. Can I tell you how much I LOVE Old Navy? They rock! When I was trying to figure out what size to order, I found out that their sizing chart is different than the other 2 sites and I had to order two sizes smaller, instead of one! (Thank goodness I checked the sizing charts.) I was so psyched! Everything came yesterday and I immediately tried it all on. Everything fit!
Insomnia returns. I'm actually writing this live past 3am. Why? I have no idea, I just know that I could not sleep. Nothing going on, not the usual stress or what have you. I just plain can't sleep.

Got your taxes done?Yes.
What do batteries run on?Chemical energy.
What do chickens think we taste like?Do chickens think?
What do they call a French kiss in France?A Kiss?
Why is lemon juice made with artificial flavor and dishwashing liquid made with real lemons?I agree, makes no sense.
How many times is it appropriate to say "What?" before you just nod and smile because you still didn't hear or understand a word they said?Two?
I hate when I just miss a call by the last ring (Hello? Hello? Darn it!), but when I immediately call back, it rings nine times and goes to voice mail. What did you do after I didn't answer? Drop the phone and run away?Depends who I'm calling.
So Mel Gibson left his girlfriend - think he's finally heard of me?I didn't hear that. I guess I'm out of the loop.
Why do they call it "getting your dog fixed" if afterwards it doesn't work anymore?Because 'fixing' the dog is the right thing to do.
Are you bothered that I didn't number these?Slightly. It looks more organized when things are numbered.
