Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
In behalf of all the other signs, I’d like to express our gratitude for the jumpstarts you Scorpios give us. The jolts aren’t always bliss-inducing, true, but in retrospect we often say, “Thanks, I really needed that.” We also appreciate the debates you embroil us in. They force us to take stands on issues we’ve been wishy-washy about. Our gratitude also goes out to you for those times you help us lose our excessive self-importance. It’s hard to cling to our pretensions with you around, and it’s easier to get to the root of the truth. Keep up the good work. Continue to be your warm prickly self even in the face of protests from faint hearts. Know that at least some of your fans out here respect the way you push us and trick us and inspire us to go places we don’t even realize we’ll benefit from going.
Good, I can go back to being a bitch (though I admit that I’m learning when I need to, and when to be my cuddly cute self). That said, has anyone coined the phrase ‘migraine season’? If not, I’m doing so right now. I thought I was going to handle hell week really well, then started feeling like I was getting the stress flu. On the way home from work today, went to pick up fixings for my potluck contribution and wham! I want to puke now. So I’m downing my huge 16 oz cup of coffee, then going to bed. I have the a/c on, in case the heat is contributing to it. Monday I’m forcing the Doc to break my neck and that should help.
All that said, I hate college students. I’m sorry if you’re reading this and you are one, which, please take notes. If you are going to choose to live in an off-campus apartment complex, please realize, many of your neighbors are not college students. Most of us work for a living, full-time and have careers, or some job that requires us to hold a schedule. Don’t assume we all have Wednesday morning off and have a party Tuesday night that lasts till 3am. Also, when someone who lives near you, informs you of a slight peculiarity of your location (such as living on a hill and sound waves echoing, cigarette smoke rising – ya know, normal things that you should have learned in hs chem and physics), please remember that they are being polite. Take a note and be respectful, don’t run from said neighbor every time you see her, because you don’t want to face the wrath of your incompetence.
