A day of days...

Have you ever had one of those days that just serves to remind you exactly how much better and how much worse your life could be? Take for example, my day today, a Saturday. So much potential in a Saturday.

I suppose I should start at the beginning, after all, it's usually the most seemingly harmless events which, in retrospect, lead to our ultimate undoing.

On Friday, after work, Randy and I headed over to his Mom's house out in Margarita Farms. She was supposed to be leaving for Italy at 4 in the morning, and was trying to prepare us to help take care of her house/cats/fish/vegetabls etc. There is a little concern on her part about leaving, since one of her two cats has been missing for two days, and they're starting to think she might have been eaten by owls or badgers or something... We stayed there for about an hour, then came home. After a few hours around the house, we decide to try to make it to a 10:00 showing of Jackass in AG. Well, we were running seriously late, and arrived in AG at exactly 10:00 to see that the movie was already sold out. Change of plans, we decide to head to dinner instead, and about 2 hours later, we drive home. At some point, we're notified that Randy's mom's missing kitten has returned. On the walk into the house from the car, we both could swear we hear crying baby animals on the other side of the fence that divides our apartment complex from the next, but who are we, the ASPCA? So, no investigation.

Hours later, its Saturday. Finally. Of all days, I think Saturday is probably my favorite, so I can't imagine why it would need to be so spiteful.

Our plans today include a trip to the valley. There are only (in my opinion) 3 or 4 good reasons to head off in this general direction, all of which cost a lot of money, so it's rare that we're in a situation where making this journey will be enjoyable. Today, we were going with the ultimate goal of picking up Reece, and browsing the mall. The Hanford Mall is worth the effort, solely because they possess a Hot Topic. Now some friends who were going to accompany us on this trip arrive at our apartment, only to depart a few minutes later. (This is only upsetting because I hate seeing friends ill, and believe me, I know what it's like to miss something you were looking forward to because you were sick, and I hate that too.)

Anyway, we pile into the borrowed Corolla we're driving (don't even get me started, the fiasco with our cars is never-ending) and head out. We decide to stop for gas and food in Paso, pull into the AMPM, goof around inside for 10 minutes or so, then decide to hit up the old faithful Mac-Do drive-thru next door on our way out of town. In the drive-thru line, we hear someone's sad kitten crying its little baby heart out in "the bushes" all around us. The bizarrest thing is, how the crying kitten seems to be following us, and sounds remarkably similar to the neighboring apartments crying kitten from last night. Randy shuts the car off in the drive-thru and pops the hood, which only serves to make it extremely clear that there is definately some sort of animal living under the engine of this car.

We get our food, pull out of the drive-thru and park in an empty space of the Mac-Do parking lot to investigate.

Four greasy hands, one bubblegum covered towel, a jack, and an hour and a half later, a lethargic and extremely grody kitten by the name of Rollo is successfully extracted from the underbelly of the Corolla, via a tiny hole in the wheel well. (I've already officially renamed him "Corollo" even tho he's not my cat.)

This stupid little punk must have climbed his way in there on Friday night, rode all around with us from A-town, to AG and back, and then to Paso today where we found him. He was snuggled up against the oil pan which from what I hear was burning hot when we pulled him out from under the car. He's lucky to be alive, especially considering that both of his back legs were hanging out touching the street when I found him, and its not like we only took the car to the mailbox and back.

Miraculously, he doesnt appear to have a single scratch on him, and other than an ass full of muck from under the car, he seems to be ok.

Randy's sister met us in Paso and took this whiny little shit, towel, and catfood (bought from AMPM) back to the house for a bath and physical. (I hear he seems to be physically ok, but he may be mentally retarded now, something about running full-on into sliding glass doors and getting stuck upside-down between a wall and a planter... so who knows, maybe he's not ok...)

So now its roughly 3:45 (where has the day gone) and were starving, covered in oily grease, sitting dumbfounded outside of Mac-Do in Paso wondering how it's possible that these things can happen. I spend probably 20 minutes in the Mac-Do bathroom pissing off other customers who want to wash their hands. They didn't need that entire thing of soap anyway and I'm sure they have something that will take the black grease out of the white sink later.

We get back in the car and get on the road.

This leads to the next unpleasant event of the day: Trying to eat lunch. Apparently it's not really important to close the salad containers before putting them into the plastic bag and handing them out to customers. So we discover a sludgy mess of crap where our salads are supposed to be, and NO NAPKINS. We've made it maybe a mile from the Mac-Do and we have to pull over again.

We stop at the 76 station up the road (still not out of Paso, yay.) and I head inside to wash off the various salad dressing and silverwear packets which are now drenched in whatever that orange stuff that comes in an asian chicken salad is. Inside the gas station bathroom I try to turn the water on with the back of one sticky goo covered hand, only to turn it on full blast and propel the entire stream of water directly onto the crotch of my pants. So now I'm covered in car, cat, and salad goo, sticky up to the elbows, and it looks like I've peed my pants.

Now, not that this day was all bad. There were some cool new things to look at in Hot Topic, and one cool shirt I got off the super discount rack there. Also, I got to watch Reece get her ears pierced for the second time. (Much more entertaining than I imagined, apparently she was dying to have it done, until it was actually time to get to the poking, then she was freaking out worse than if I had told her she had to ride the Zipper with me again.)

So when it comes down to it, here's what I learned today:

1. It could be worse, you could be a retarded kitten stuck under the engine of a Corolla.

2. It can't rain all the time.

3. There's always cool stuff on the clearance rack, even though its clearance.
