Well, today wasn’t too bad. I got stuck on express lane all day long, which sucked of course, but my sick friend was back today, and not sick anymore. 🙂 I missed him. He looks tired but otherwise is all right, which makes me happy. We talked about books a lot and he got to leave work before I did, the little punk. *grin* Got to see a couple of my other friends too, and pass on some of the gifts I won as prizes for raising money for the MDA, (I got 3rd place for raising $447 dollars) which was nice. I like spoiling my friends and giving them things.

I was pretty exhausted when I got home but after some good dinner and time loafing on the couch, I decided to go out for a walk in the rain. (That’s my twisted logic for you. Feel tired? Go for an hour long walk! Uphill!) It was fabulous. Unfortunately I think I must have pulled something in my right leg because it REALLY started hurting about mid-walk, and I had to cut things a little short, but I still had a good time. I probably looked like a crazy person with my hoodie on, splashing through puddles rescuing earthworms, listening to my iPod and not appearing to care that I was getting absolutely soaked, (I looked as though I’d had a nice long shower by the time I got home) but I don’t care. It was perfect, and I felt a lot better/less depressed afterwards.

Sometimes I tell people at work (customers and employees both) that I like to walk in the rain, and they fritter about it and think I’m nuts, but I don’t care about that, either. Sure, it’s unusual, and sometimes a little dangerous, but that’s what makes it worth doing. If you can’t appreciate that, it’s your loss, not mine. I’ll do as I please and get away with it, just like I always have. ^_~ (It’s one of the perks of being made entirely of Awesome.) Besides. Every now and then, you meet someone of a like mind, and that can be a lot of fun.

And with that, I now have to drag my tired, achy self to bed so I can prepare for my massive eight hour shift tomorrow. Let’s all give a quick w00t for money and seeing friends for more than thirty minutes.
