-- I ate almost half a box of crackers while watching Coronation Street and bawled my eyes out because Vera died and I have no idea how Jack is going to manage without her.
-- I also cried during Obama's victory speech on Tuesday night because I saw Oprah and Jesse Jackson crying first. Jerks.
-- I was a total cunt to a woman in line at the grocery store. She saw me heading for the cashier and raced me for position. She beat me to the line-up, but almost crashed her cart into me. She had an entire cart full of a week's worth of family groceries - I had just FOUR items, plus I'm juggling everything in one arm because my knee is all busted up, and I'm on crutches. I found this unusually rude behaviour, and gave her a dirty look. She said, "Sorry, but I'm late to pick up the kids from daycare and I really need to get out of here pronto ... I'm sure you understand.". To which I said: "Oh, I understand. I understand that you think your time is more valuable than mine, and that you take advantage of disabled people to meet your own selfish needs." She started to argue with me, but I cut her off and snapped at her: "Just shut up and pay for your stuff, bitch."
