Tired, Dinner, and a Movie

March 19th 2005 / 1 minute to read

I’ve been feeling exhausted all day long, not enough sleep and my neck is sore. I have no clue what to make for dinner and I’m really not in the mood to cook, and I want to rent a movie but… it’s cold, it’s raining… and I don’t have anyone willing to take me to rent a video.
