Reasons to be grumpy

I'm going to Boston tomorrow, and things are still unsettled for me there.

I'm supposed to be, this evening, discussing getting money owed to me paid back, and it started off with a request to borrow more money.

Plus, on top of it all, I feel like I'm full of peanuts. I had said "fuck it" to my diet last night, and bought a loaf of bread to enjoy. Surely they didn't...

    On May 1st, one of my co-residents found one of the feral rabbits that live in the area cuddled up against a corner of the house. It was seriously…
