Sorry for the venting.
Things that have went wrong today:

The guy I was texting decided to complain that I didn't seem as enthused and in love as he did. We haven't met yet. I said as much and he backed off but now he's making me question his drive to meet and talk constantly, how needy is this guy? Will I have yet another guy who is too possessive and hates how independent I am?

I was mowing the lawn with my phone in my pocket since I'm on call and apparently you can send your location via text now. I butt dialed him my address. I've had enough stalkers that this fact is stressing me out.

I have a massive check I need to deposit so I can pay bills that my bank won't take since they are never open when I actually need them and won't take deposits at the ATM anymore. 

Tried to force myself to dress up go out and write only for Starbucks to be packed. Drove home not even bothering to get a drink.

Apparently working in the yard for two hours doesn't burn enough calories to count as 30 minutes of exercise, yeah. I'm going to take a nap.

Dear all, hope you enjoyed your weekend and the rain didn’t hinder any plans. There were lots of great articles in the newspapers, hence a fairly long list today, as it’s quite late now maybe better to keep you occupied on the train to work; we all need distractions to get through a rainy Monday morning (I changed the order of the list to make sure the ‘beach’ wasn’t mentioned first… )

Not really a great headline from Ralph. It is actually about what happens when a sound wave that matches the visual frequency of your recording medium hits water. I guess that's a bit long for a headline though.

Well, cheese scones turned into a kind of drop biscuit but they're still amazing.

Wonderful lunch experience. I got the salmon wrap with sweet potato fries, which was amazing. They give you a mountain of fries so be prepared to take some home.
