Sister Mary Zoom Zoom needs some major work. Her fuel gauge is not working properly, so I don’t know how much gas I have. There were suggestions yesterday to carry around a notebook and keep track of my mileage. I don’t want to do that. It’s a nice car and I want the fuel gauge to work. The same way I wanted my ice maker to work. The same way I would want anything I use all the time to work. I filled her up Wednesday night and drove around all day yesterday. The gauge never budged from full even though I drove 75 miles. I am not happy.
I had dinner with Friend Pam last night and then we watched the latest episode of Bates Motel. Holy crap! I think Norman is a bit too attached to his mommacita. But now, he’s in trouble and he really needs her. Such a complex mother/son relationship. In the summer, my mom used to make me a bologna sandwich and give me a dime for a soda. That was lunch. She set me off early in the morning to do my own whatever and I was usually gone for 8 hours. Norma would never leave Norman out of range that long. No siree.
How do you spell Oedipus?
It’s a great series. I just heard it’s been renewed for another season! YAY! My favorite character is Emma Decody. She is a sweet teen girl with cystic fibrosis – played by Olivia Cooke. She is quirky. Maybe that’s why I relate to her so well. Some snarky reporter tried to insult me a few months ago by calling me quirky. She had no idea what a compliment that really was.

Two more days of work and then I get another day off. WOW! One whole day! This is why I don’t feel bad when I take off for places like Amsterdam. I work my butt-ooski off. Butt-ooski. I will be working 7-8 hours tomorrow, so I don’t give a patootie what anyone says when I jet away for awhile. Butt-ooski. Patootie. Loving these words today.
I need to run down to the bank before heading off to the salt mine. Hope I don’t run out of gas.
