Good morning, Seattle.

And other parts of the world. Just so you know, I will be one of those LJers who discusses what they had for breakfast. Oatmeal! Again, oatmeal! By god, healthy, chewy, gummy, miraculous Oatmeal! I tried the milk, apple, and cinnamon thing and it was rather tastier. Resembled rice pudding, actually, but not so sweet. Can't get behind the idea of adding sugar yet, because it's supposed to be healthy, yo. But maybe a spoonful wouldn't hurt.

Wiseacress has a terrific little S/X essay up here, which made me happy:

And I so don't want to be at work today, but on Friday most of my outgoing e-mails said, "Will follow up with you on Monday." So I'm kind of locked into that. One of the first things I did today was call my bank and finally look into a personal loan to consolidate debt. I immediately discovered the reason why my procrastination makes no difference: they calculate average loan allotments based on the diamond-engagement-ring rule, i.e., a limit based on double your monthly salary. So instead of the $25,000 I need, I can get...$6,000. Strangely enough, that doesn't help me. Also? I could get more if my credit is good. Yeahhhhh. Well, the reason I want to consolidate debt is because paying my bills is currently a challenge. So again, that doesn't help me. Fucking financial fuckheads.

Despite this, I'm kind of middling cheery. Yay for neurochemical mood enhancers. Now I must go work, in order to keep earning a salary which will never eradicate my debt, but which will at least keep me swimming in oatmeal.
