Mine back aches! ;_;

OK, so it was worse earlier. Right now there's pain in my arms to compensate. -_- Why is that? Simply put, I'm sore. I'm generally not sore and I'm not a big fan, but I didn't really have a choice this time. I got it from my work on Monday and Tuesday. Monday wasn't that bad, but Tuesday.... That day consisted of a lot of heavy lifting and moving. Didn't feel anything yesterday, but today, I had a noticable pain in my upper back and arms this morning. What didn't help was that my dad decided to take me on another handyman job today. -_-; It was a job maintaining the air conditioning system at my dentist's office. It wasn't such a bad job in general, but there were moments when I had to lug some hefty stuff and climb up and down a ladder to and off the roof. Oh well, as I always like to say: pain builds character. I'm not dead, so I'll manage.

Darn bass and its non-directional nature! *shakes fist* Have you ever been in a car, heard and/or felt a strong rumbling obviously eminating from another car's audio system? Well, I was in one of those situations today. What annoyed me though, was that I couldn't figure out just what car that sound was coming from. -_- I like to pride myself in my above average hearing, but what can I really do about assigning a direction to a non-directional sound? Now that I think about it, it was probably the car behind me, but for the longest time, I thought it was the car to my left....

After finishing the job, my dad and I went to Jamba Juice. I don't understand the big hoopla surrounding that establishment, but hey, they sell smoothies and I'm a fan of the occasional one or two. When I got in, I was immediately reminded about all the healthy crap they try to foist upon you. All this wheatgrass and boost crap.... As far as I'm concerned, smoothies should just be fruit and ice cream/sherbert/sorbet. All that other stuff is completely peripheral and, for myself, unwanted. Meh.

OK, while I was waiting for my drink, I was looking around the place to try to find stuff to interest me for the duration of maybe two, three, four minutes. Slightly in front of me, there were two schoolgirls who had been in line directly before me. Out of the corner of my eye, I could see that they were looking in my general direction, briefly pointing in the same direction, and then covering their mouths as to only keep the conversation to themselves. Now, it may just be a hunch, but that gives me the impression that they were talking about me. Now, sorry for making such a gross generalization, but why must girls be so obvious? This isn't the first time I've noticed it. Many girls these days seem to lack something I like to call "subtlety." Of course, many guys (arguably more) also lack this, but I just haven't seen as much of it. I guess I'm not often put in circumstances where other guys will be talking about me or something I shouldn't hear of right in front of me. *shrugs*

I checked out Merriam-Webster and apparently it can be written either "sherbet" or "sherbert."

Its funny, for the longest time, I thought that sherbet was pronounced and spelled "sherbert" but my grandfather corrected me and pointed out that somehow I, and other people I know, have been spelling and pronouncing sherBET wrong. Its a funny world, ne?? XD XD XD
