Reality Check: Coming up with Reasons why Life Sucks

Life is incredible right now. To keep myself grounded, let’s review why life sucks:
* My favorite and most used cardigan (no, not the one most seen by others) developed a hole in the elbow. Replacing this cardigan will require serious research. Patched!

* I lost my phone over the weekend, and it was a bit of a hassle to replace.

* My coffee situation is precarious; I’m nearly out of good beans, but I’m not likely to be near a good bean buying opportunity for a couple days. I haven’t figured out the optimal rationing solution. (RP, ignore this item for the sake of entertaining the people) YM bought me some so so solid coffee from Europe!

* I’m out of eggs from the chickens of one of my friends. Farmer’s Market eggs bought!

* My car needs gas. Gassed!

I guess that’s it.
