This is getting retarded...

Email is down again, mostly. Every 5 out of 6 actions results in IMAP connections getting dropped, which makes it IMPOSSIBLE to reply to anything, and seriously frustrating trying to read anything. Dreamhost had better kiss some serious butt after this. I've got like 250 emails to answer. And accumulating. And I can't get to my orders to actually fill them.


Also, exempt shipping is OUT OF HERE. I will refund shipping on web adoption orders, or something, because it is just stupid how many people think 'oh, I will utterly ignore that part that says for web adoption only and select THAT because it is FREE.'

Also, there are yellow jackets like crazy out, and it is very, very unnerving sitting in the outhouse with them crawling around on me trying to get down my pants. I am deathly allergic to them, they are nasty mean creatures and they tickle when they're walking around on fragile, bare flesh. Also, they do that little twitchy thing like they're going to sting just for the heck of it, and it's very, very hard not to flinch.

(It is, however, kind of cool (in a Discover channel kind of way) to watch them snatch flies out of the air and curl around to sting them to death while they're flying. Acrobatic little bastards.)

Also, I have broken my invoicing program.

I was awake for about 4 hours last night trying to shut my brain off enough to sleep. The only real conclusion I came to in that time is that mean and selfish people get ahead in this world, even if they shouldn't. That it took me 30 years to admit this is probably a clue that I'm not as smart as I think I am.

So, no, not a great start to my day.
