    OK...so here's MY latest rant. I received the 2nd set of blinds for my bedroom window yesterday...called my helper who "was" going to install them for me...when I get to the courier depot to pick them up, both ends of the box were OPEN...the clerk documented the fact that the ends were not sealed but said I was not allowed to check to see if all the pieces were there & I could just refuse acceptance of them & ship them back. But I was able to peek inside to see the header for the blinds encased in a plastic sleeve & figured the hardware would likely be inside also. Of course, the hardware is missing SO I cannot install my blinds because there are no brackets OR screws to attach them to the window frame....r-r-r-r-r-r-r!!! I have curtains for my window also so no one will be privy to my naked bodacious bod any time soon BUT you get the point....r-r-r-r-r!! I very calmly in spite of myself left a VERY clear message on the answering service at the blind co. last night figuring I won't hear back until Tuesday at the very earliest due to the holiday...so I came home & emailed a nice explicit email expressing my disappointment & expectations for some type of reimbursement for all the FRUSTRATION...to my surprise I got a call this aft from the lady who is handling my other dispute with this company and she was very apologetic & is on the case....

    SO THERE!!

    Having said all that, there are much worse things to worry about than stupid blinds!!!

    AND this is how my alcohol brain has been working lately...I bought 24 beer for the move day...12 would have been plenty, then bought the large bottle of wine for the ladies with the intent of sending all the leftover alcohol home with whoever and THEN.....began to think that perhaps I will just hang on to the excess...JUST IN CASE someone dropped in...WHAT??? Where on earth is this coming from???? What is wrong with MY brain...hmmmm!! Any suggestions??

    The excess alcohol is going home with whoever and is NOT staying in my house for nothing!! Oh brother.... :s

    Well, you DO need to be prepared for those unexpected guests.... And then you might as well drink it before it gets skunked from being in the refrigerator too long....

    Or is that only me?

    OMG...you actually read my brain about the wine going skunky. I never drank red wine chilled...always liked it room temp, BUT if I wanted it (a type that wasn't terribly to my liking) to last longer OR was 'trying' not to drink it, I'd put it in the fridge cause I don't really like it cold & thought it would be a deterent...well we all know how that works out, don't we??? Kinda like freezing chocolate to avoid eating it....MMMMMM....Yummmy frozen chocolate. :p

    Anyhoo, you read my brain because I thought IF I did hang onto it and IF I didn't sabotage myself & drink it, the thought of it going skunky really bugged me...and I did actually think, "Well, I can always keep it in the fridge so it lasts longer." I've thrown out my share of wine in my drinking days (always when I was sick of myself & decided to give it up ONCE AGAIN!! till the next round), so I'm not sure why I was right into wine preservation in my brain in my new Sober days, BUT this only proves to me that, "Just one drink WILL hurt me." Like has been said here before, "I don't have a drinking problem, I have a 'thinking problem'!!! I think that's a Craig Ferguson line if I remember correctly.

    Me, I don't serve alcohol anymore. I find other things. I don't feel like wasting so much brain power on the whole thing :).
