You know you have no life when...

Post by Miss Ronnie on Mon Oct 08, 2012 3:05 pm

You know you have no life when....

the most exciting news in 6 months is that you FINALLY get the &^$%@! furniture store to send you the (*$^#&! replacement remote for your adjustable bed that has remained in the "taco" position ever since the remote broke... for the SECOND time since you bought the bed only two years ago... and you managed to pay off the bed long before they managed to replace the remote. And there are no other beds in your house to sleep in except your child's bed so you have been switching off trying to sleep in either the recliner or the sofa...

And the whole reason you bought the !@*$&! bed in the first place was because your back hurt too much in a regular bed so you slept in a chair for 2 1/2 years before you decided to take the plunge and shop for an extravagant bed you couldn't afford and had to take out a loan to buy it.

But I digress...

There shall be celebrating in Miss Ronnie's house tonight! But by tomorrow I imagine my body will revolt and I'll be twisted like a pretzel and cursing through the pain of sleeping in such a wonderfully comfortable bed with a memory foam mattress... because I've grown so used to the stupid recliner and the sofa...

I feel sorry for you!
I know it's nice to have a good nights rest and seems you have been stuck from that for ages!

So... Night night (over here it's sleeping time, don't know your timezone?! ) hope you'll sleep like sleeping beauty!

I think the CIA breaks people by taking away their sleep.

My oldest daughter would sleep 2-5 hours a night, and not in a row. If she wasn't sleeping, then I wasn't sleeping either.

I will catch up on my sleep when I'm dead.

Started my break down topic not because of being sick from chemo, but because of no sleep....
Says it all. I really, really need sleep.
I call my wig groundhog, but with that much of sleep I need, I'm a groundhog too! Laughing

How did the sleep go, Miss Ronnie?

I did have a silly mental image of the remote breaking in a different way, and randomly adjusting the position of your bed all night... Laughing

Alas, there was NO celebration after all last night.. because my son did not get a chance to attach the plug into the darn bed ( you have to crawl under the bed to do so)
Woe is me - people, please rub your unicorns again for me; Yesterday I had to deal with:
-Sudden and complete loss of brakes on my new(ish) van.

-One of my cats fell ill with cystitis (has been fatal to 3 of my cats) - vet bill was not pretty and had to drive to and from vet with the loudest brake grinding noise in the world, thinking the whole time that I was about to die and take my son, his girlfriend and one of my cats with me.

-My left butt cheek is KILLING me from sciatic nerve and am basically high on Hydrocodone again

-Sleeping in recliner again... nuff said about that.

I'm starting to wonder if someone cast a spell on me!

Just wondering; Does broken mirror bad luck trickle down to the person who actually broke the mirror or the person who gave their mirror to the person who broke it to look in?..... two Dollar Store mirrors in two weeks - three within the last month!!!!!

Ha ha, Tina! Unfortunately, I was the one who bought THE last bed and they no longer sold them after that - and they no longer used that particular manufacturer after that bed was sold to me... The under-story goes on and on and on, but I think you guys got the general idea - I bought a bed two years ago in January so I could stop sleeping in my recliner and have only been able to sleep in said bed for about 6 months total in that time. In the meantime, whilst trying to do battle over a friggin' remote, the bed was completely paid off because I kept my end of the deal... the store really probably could have cared less about my ordeal! I think what got them really moving was that I threatened to call News Channel 9 - which LOVES to cover stories like this one.

Yes, thank you, I'm doing fine!
Hope the problem will be fixed by plugging the remote today and you'll sleep like a baby!
I'm off to rub my unicorn!

Mirror mirror (mirror, mirror, mirror ...)

NO! No, Miss Ronnie Very Happy Face painters do not experience bad luck from broken mirrors because we have a symbiotic relationship with mirrors, and give the mirrors lots of good press. Therefore, it is cosmic law that we can break them by 1) dropping full length ones in the street during festival load-up, 2) sit on them after placing them on our painter's seat, standing up to paint a kid, then re-sitting (my very first gig ever - didn't I look cool!), and 3) having them get crushed in our kit due to poor packing.

That's only the "so far." My luck hasn't been any different than since before I took up painting. (In other words, my car sucks too, and my chimney needs to be re-lined with a stainless steel liner so that the universe can suck up all the money I made during my last three festivals.)

See? No bad luck from mirror breakage. Just ... the same luck!

Hope you get some great nights of sleep soon!
