It's wet 

Yes, it's raining. And raining. And raining. And whoops, it's flooded. The river that run through town is normally a quiet, peaceful stream really. And today it was a torrential river! My "riverfront property" (really a drainage stream thing) is a swampland. Everything is soaked.

And last night, I just couldn't stay out of the rain. At first it was on purpose and fun, but after the sixth trip out to my car to find my missing celly....it got old.

I worked at the shop last night. Not a soul ordered a refreshing beverage. So I got to leave at 8. It took me twice as long as normal to drive home. There was water creeping up on both sides of the highway. When I had to go down a hill, I thought it was going to sweep my little car (and me in it) away to Oz. Which would have been pretty cool, the munchkins and all that.

Spaz came over last night. We talked the usual. But then he also told me some stories from when he was younger. Wow. Not what I was expecting from his life. He's such a happy go lucky guy and I never would have guessed that his life wasn't always like that.

Ok, I was in bed and curled up with a book at 11:00. And then the phone rings. I didn't recognize the number except that it was a Colorado number. I was pretty sure Kasey had already left for Italy, but I had to make sure. So I answered it. It was Timber. He needed a ride.

Oh I can't even tell you how pissed off I was. But I went and picked him up. I didn't way a word to him either. I couldn't, I would have gone off on him. And I fucking dare him to call me a bitch for not acknowledging him.

Now that I've gotten to know him a little, I've decided that I don't need to be his friend. Normally I'd be his friend, even if I didn't like him that much, because it would be nice because he doesn't have any in this state. But this is one charity case I'm turning down. Why?

1.He embarrassed me. And I barely know him. There is such a thing as tact.
2.He asked for my confidence and then disregarded my request for the same. And then he asked Lion to lie to me. Which is so dumb cause it was this whole triangle of gossip. I don't need to be a part of that.
3.He and I do not have matching personalities. He's a know-it-all and I cannot stand know-it-alls. Like I have an incredible dislike for know-it-alls. I'm getting annoyed just thinking about it.
4.He treats me like a taxi. It would be one thing if it was just across town or something, but it's 20 minutes away on a good day. And I picked him up while I was on a date!
5.He insulted my coffee shop. The bast'd.

And just so you know, the only reason I'm listing everything is because I feel really guilty for getting so angry. It's just a little thing. A fellow human needed a ride and asked me for help and I decided to write him off forever? Yeah. Basically.

I sent a text message to Grover saying that I actually could hit someone I was so angry (I'm such a nonviolent person it's sad). So he called right away even tho he had to wake up at seven (I did too, but couldn't sleep after that). We talked for awhile and caught each other up on the happenings. I didn't realize I missed him so much.
