Well, that was a week.

In the wilds of retail, call center customer service is at least removed from in-person, in-your-face weirdness and difficulty. This makes me glad I don't work customer service in person. (Bobbie Winchell is impressively good at it; she runs the Thrift Store for Cat Adoption Team. Reminds me: I should drop off a little more stuff there.) But as I got to the end of this day at the end of this week less than one more week before Christmas, I kept myself afloat mentally by earworming myself with Camper Van Beethoven's "Take the Skinheads Bowling." I needed that leeeeeeetle touch of madness. Because otherwise my mind would've been repeating on endless loop maybe my favorite line from Aliens, when Ellen Ripley says "Did IQs just DROP sharply while I was away?"

I don't really have anything to add to this. Except that the leeeeeeetle touch of madness I'm now getting as I wind down at home is the soothing oddness (trust me, for me it's true) of Kate Bush's compilation The Whole Story.
