Arrgh, I am at the library, and everyone is making noise! Grrr! Sniff, snort, snuffle, mumble, sniff, whispering, throat-clearing....oh, it is driving me nuts.

Yeah, I'm irritable. People always tell me to "just tune it out", but I can't. Just the presence of them is bothering me, LOL.

Today is "hick day" in Priest River, part of "spirit week" for the local schools. This means that I can dress up as a hick for work. I am sorely tempted to make a total parody of it, but probably shouldn't (have to retain the job, after all). I don't know where to get a ratty old beer T-shirt or bleach-blonde wig with long stringy hair. Hmmmmm, hmmmmm...... Failing that, I think I can come up with a skin tight T-shirt and a wool plaid shirt....maybe a faded bandana for my hair. And then, the make-up. Abundant eyeliner, mascara, thick and flaking foundation, bright lipstick, and something to make my front teeth look rotten. That would round it all out perfectly, especially with a pack of cigarettes in the pocket of the shirt, or a can of chew, and horrendous grammar. Oh, dear....:giggle: Man, I just can't. They'll have to settle for the boots, work pants, and wool shirt.

Jesus, I wish the woman a chair away from me would go to the bathroom and blow her damned nose!!!!!! OK, now another one sat down right next to me, and she smells strongly like shampoo. I am wondering why someone doesn't manufacture scent-free shampoo, or perhaps I haven't found it. It isn't like hair that is otherwise clean smells bad. Rainwater. I should collect rainwater. I wonder if it would start to get stale and smelly if stored. Not all shampoo smells bad to me....but when everything (shampoo, hair products in general, soaps, deodorants, laundry detergents, hand lotions, etc) is scented.....even if one doesn't wear any other scent such as perfume, you're already bathed in it. I worry about this, whether I smell like flowery dreck to other folks.

It's the strangest thing, I smell other people, but I have no idea what I myself smell like.
