In other terrible news, today's payday, but I'm already in financial hot water. If something doesn't change on the money front soon, I'm going to have to take Drastic Measures (look into debt consolidation, declare bankruptcy, or, you know, rob a bank, get rid of the car, or something along those lines.)

Hey, at least my teeth aren't hurting.

More later, if I'm not busy crying.
[UPDATE 1438 ET: The morning report that I do daily, which has to go out at 7:45 every morning (and is solely responsible for a lot of my stress about getting here late,) made it out today... right around 2:30 pm.]
