Random Tuesday Rant
Traffic was so ridiculous today. I leave my house at the same time every morning and I'm usually the first person here everyday. Today I left a few minutes earlier than usual and I sat in the same spot for more than 20 minutes. I live about 10 miles from work and it took me about 55 minutes to get here today. I was late! I'm never late! And the worst part is that I didn't even see an accident. I thought for sure there would be some big accident. I think there was actually some sort of collision and it was cleaned up before I got there.
Traffic patterns amaze me. I'm constantly driving, moving along just fine, when all of a sudden everyone slows down, traffic starts crawling, we come to a standstill and then we start moving again. For no reason! There is no accident, nobody is stopped on the side of the road, no dog ran out in the middle of the street - I don't know why this happens, but it drives me NUTS!!!!!!! We need to keep moving. There is no reason for you to EVER have to stop on the highway. No reason!
Okay, enough about that. So, today I'm going to the blood specialist. A few months ago when I had a physical, I had blood drawn and found out that I'm anemic. I sort of knew that because a few years ago I tried to give blood and they turned me down because I was anemic, but I forgot about it. So, the doctor gets my blood work back and refers me to a specialist. One day I'm sitting at work and I get this call from a doctor's office wanting to set up an appt. for me. They didn't explain what the appt. was for, they simply said they were calling from the Blood and Cancer Center in Nevada. I'm like "Cancer center - what?" She's like "yeah, we just got a referral from your primary and we want to set up an appt." and I'm just like stuck on this cancer center thing. All I heard was cancer! I'm like "Why would I need an appt. there - do I have cancer?" After a few minutes of going around and around she finally explains that it's for my anemia! Sheesh! They should be more careful when setting up appointments - she scared me half to death. So, that was like two months ago. Apparently they are BUSY because today was the first day I could get an appt. I don't know what they can actually do for me, but it would be nice if I didn't have to bring a freaking winter coat with me everywhere I go even in the middle of summer. I'm always cold.
So, remember I was complaining about the MGM Grand Pool???? I actually took a picture of the dirtiness...
You would never see this at the Palms. I have no patience for casinos that don't take care of the pool area. If it looks like this outside in plain view, what are they doing with the sheets and the towels up in the rooms. ya know?
They did have a lazy river, but it wasn't all that impressive...
So, is anyone planning on playing in the Blogger Tourney tonight over at Bodog???? I'm thinking about it!
