48 bottles of beer on the wall…


Ok, so for the past 48 hours shit has not been going right for me. Yesterday I tried to fax a letter to Canada twice from two separate shops and both cacked and failed all while I got the typical poor customer service shrugs I’ve gotten so used to over here on the boot. I also had to go all the way downtown for a twenty minute meeting with my lawyer, yes, I have my own lawyer now, all because Fastweb won’t leave me alone!

A private lesson cancelled at the last minute (I was actually happy about that), and then I only had two students at my last lesson because all the others were “skiing” as it is “white week” here in Italy. It took all the energy I could muster not to strangle the one boy in my class!

Oh, did I mention that both my iPad and computer also crashed on me? That all happened yesterday. Today, is my 48th birthday. I woke up to see a gorgeous rainbow in the sky. Hmmmm, maybe today will be better. I have no lessons and got flowers delivered from my husband. Okay, things are looking up. I decided to clean the house a bit but the birthday Gods got pissed off at me and they broke the handle on my vacuum! Then I turned on a light and the bulb blew.

I’ve got plans to go out for pizza tonight but it’s pouring rain and to be honest I’m afraid to touch anything! So…48 hours and then tomorrow is another supermoon…48 years old and there’s some freaky shit going on here with my wang chung…48 bottles of beer on the wall, 48 bottles of beer, if one of the bottles should happen to fall, 47 bottles of beer on the wall. Do you remember singing that on long bus rides to make the journey go by faster? Well, I don’t plan on singing the song but I do plan on drinking some of that beer to shake this weird cosmic funk into tomorrow.

Oh, and I also treated myself to watching the first season of Game of Thrones and am totally hooked. I now have a huge crush on John Snow too but don’t tell my husband šŸ˜‰

    As long as it is good beer, drink one or more for me. I only have one Shocktop in the fridge and that is being saved for the Super Bowl Sunday night.

    Happy Happy Birthday Sweet Leah! I wish I could be with you to celebrate, and I hope you have a fun filled day-rain or no rain. The temps are freezing in Galveston, I hope it’s much warmer at your home. Eddies flowers are beautiful. I’m going aboard this Saturday. So I’ll compliment him about the flowers. Is there anything you’d like me to buy for him and take to him? Just let me know.

    • Hi Becci,
      Thank you for the birthday wishes!
      I know you are going onboard today, thanks for the offer. Maybe next time as I would like to soon top-up my itunes account. Let me know the next time you are planning to go. E’s birthday is in March so I may ask you to bring something to him for me. Just have to see how and what šŸ™‚
      Enjoy your cruise šŸ™‚

  3. Happy birthday dear Leah!
