Frustration is the name of the game, yesterday and today.

First is with my #$^#%&^ laptop which freezes up *all* the time with the "unresponsive script" crap. I SO need a new laptop!

Second is with my goddamned car which is the last piece of shit leftover from the marriage. If I had the money, I'd just dump it and get something else. I need to have it taken in to see why metal is grinding against metal, or someone to come and look at the damned thing, someone who knows what they are doing and will follow through with diagnosing it. I'm terrified that whatever-it-is that's wrong is just going to snap and I'll be in a horrible accident and kill other people. It really is that bad.

Third is the glasses thing; I tried ordering online but get stopped time and again with either stuff I don't know, like my distance between my pupils and then once I get that figured out, the glasses I want aren't available in the DP number and I can't figure out what to do about it.

Fourth is my sewing machine which occasionally just randomly goes into a decorative stitch that goes backward and then forward. I CANNOT AFFORD to not be without it and this is the one that supposedly was just repaired; the newer one needs to go in but I can't afford that either.

Can frustration be terminal? If so, I'm close. I can't take much more of all my shit not working at the same time, all of it.

EDIT: I should have fucking called the glasses site yesterday. Apparently I can't order anything from them with a difference in my PD in gradient bifocals. FUCK! Why does everything have to be so hard!

Oh, man, malfunctioning machinery/tech is the worst. Makes you want to just take a 2x4 to it. I hope you can get all this fixed without too much hassle.

If I'd known you had a bi-focal prescription, I could have told you it's impossible to order glasses on-line. Ian suggested a place for me and I discovered they are only for people with single vision glasses.

Try Costco. several of my friends have gone there with excellent results.

Then why the HELL don't they say that upfront? They have listings for bifocals and everything. That's utter bullshit! Sorry, not mad at you but at them. I wasted two entire days trying to figure out how to order those glasses.

Yeah, Costco is my only option; heading there after my 11am rehearsal.

Hi Susi. I'd hug you but I rather think handing over a bottle of rum might be a better idea. I'm sorry that you live under so much stress. I very much hope that one week the tide turns and just keeps turning for you because it is long past over due.

Yeah, I'm really tired of the shit basket overturning on my life.

REALLY tired.
