It never rains, but it

It never rains, but it pours. Or in my case, the heavens open up and bucketsful begin falling on my head.

My dad's defibrillator went off again today. At least once, quite probably twice or more. We won't know for sure until he can get in, hopefully in the next couple of days, and get the data read off it. I just really didn't need this on top of everything else. I'm afraid I rather took it out on people at dinner tonight; I was more sarcastic than I've been for quite awhile. It's not so much the fact that things happen, it's that things happen and I can't do anything about it. And on top of it all, I have to put on a brave face; everyone else seems to be having a rough week too. No use my unloading my poor little troubles on everyone else. It's enough that I have to deal with them. More than enough, actually, but it'll be okay. It always is, isn't it?


On a lighter note, there's definitely something in the drinking water this semester. I don't think I've ever seen people start pairing off so quickly. It's quite disturbing, really. Leaves one a little dizzy; you can never keep straight who's with whom. If I don't watch out, maybe even I'll fall into the trap.
