72 > 60

Hung out with Dave, showed him the house I'm hoping to buy.

On the way there, I stupidly got a speeding ticket. Doing 72 in a 60. It's my 2nd ticket ever and the first in TX. I can take defensive driving and make it go away but it'll cost $$ and inevitably I'd rather spend the money (and time) on something else. One ticket in 10 years of driving isn't too bad, but still....

I have a very icky feeling in my stomach from that ticket. I think it has something to do with enjoying the fact that I so often got to bend (and occasionally seriously sprain) the law and then feeling amazingly stupid for getting hit with a speeding ticket. Normally I'm very good at catching speed traps, but this time a combination of being tired and talking about the house distracted me enough that Molly got away from me a bit.

On the bright side, the next time I get a call from one of the dozen or so law enforcement charity organizations (inevitably at 7am on a Saturday morning), I can now honestly say "Sorry, I already gave this year" and promptly hang up. Oh, and Dave got to see how I do get a little bit more attention from cops than even he does (I got asked a few questions that he didn't get when he was stopped a while ago). Cops just don't like me and to a large extent, the feeling is mutual.

I'm not going to get off on a rant... at least not right now.

Not a happy camper....

Today has sucked so far.

No news on the house (at this rate I'm tempted to say fortunately). Just lots of work related stress and headaches.

I'm going to have to go and chew out some people. In my current mood, I wouldn't surprised if I rip some of their heads off (metaphorically of course).

Today is just turning out to to be fun fun fun.
