Dreaming that you have just woken up and started your morning routine, then waking up and realizing that all of that was bullshit.

People who are just nasty when calling in their code enforcement complaints.

Today I had someone reporting unhealthy conditions at a local school and I told her I had to research to see whether we or a county authority handle those situations in a school and then she asks me "You're not a friend of the principal there, right?".  I was completely offended and pissed off.  I told her so, too.

You didn't answer the question, Colleen.  ;)

I wonder what world these people live in. It must be horrible to assume or expect to get screwed by the police. Trust doesn't come easy for me but don't you just have to give cops the benefit of the doubt?

Knowing I can easily go to bed and that I should given when I need to get up in the morning but not wanting to because I don't want what's coming to come as soon as that. Make sense?

Makes perfect sense, I especially get like this when I'm nervous about something. The other day I was so tired and needed to go to sleep but I didn't want to because of what I thought might happen the next day.

The only job I ever quit without notice was because of this.  I never could fall asleep no matter how tired as I knew the moment i fell asleep I would wake up and have to go to work.

That in Portland, one of the rainiest cities in the world, you can't go to a Target, Walmart or JCPenny in Mid-april and find a kid's raincoat because all they needed room for 17 racks full of swimsuits....UGH

Kid's going to grow out of it in 6 months anyway - heading to the Goodwill Store....
