Last night I tried going to work. After two hours I nearly fell on my butt and my boss said, "Maybe you should go home."
Again. And it was a different boss from last time.
After my trip and the emotional
And, guess what? I just checked Web MD and my symptoms are those of mononucleosis: "The most common symptoms of mono are a high fever, a severe sore throat, swollen glands and tonsils, and weakness and fatigue." *sigh* I guess I'm going to go get checked for that on Monday--especially since my job involves heavy lifting.

The title of this post comes from Rush Limbaugh. Every once in a while something happens--the example that comes to mind is when he got an advance copy of an eagerly-anticipated Tom Clancy book--and he crows about it a bit, and usually finishes with, "This is what it is like to be me!"
But the phrase works equally well when life dumps on you a lot. In fact, I think it works better for that.

I have the opening theme for Lovely Complex stuck in my head. It's not really all that great of an OP, but the title sequence really gives a good overview of the series. My favorite cut is partially obscured by text:
This shows Risa with her head on the table, with her friend Chiharu freaking out at what her best friend Nobu-chan is doing.
In this scene, Nobu-chan is telling Risa, "Show him your breasts!" But she doesn't mean it literally; she's telling Risa to bare her soul to Otani-kun, the object of Risa's affection.
Unfortunately the anime doesn't actually include this scene as portrayed here. But this portrayal is damned funny anyway. The expression on Nobu-chan's face is hilarious.
I find that I can't say enough good things about Lovely Complex. I am really enjoying it.
