an_sceal: (Ha fucking ha)
So in the course of my job, it has become my duty to do Plant Things. We had a pokey, nasty pine tree on the front porch in a plastic ornamental pot, and it died. Funny how when there isn't any drainage, the plants die. ANYway.

Yesterday I went out and bought a new tree, and two new pots. Today I repotted. The dead tree, soil, planter and all, weighed about 50 pounds. It sucked to haul that across the the parking lot to the dumpster, let me tell you. And of course, being dead, it was dropping it's nasty little porcupine needles everywhere. They were stuck in my skin all the way up my arm, in my hair, in my shoes...and somehow, in my bra. OW.

To top everything off, the hose outside sprayed water all over my pants, I have a muddy smudge on my shirt (thankfully, I wore brown today), and I've just ruined my nails. (Not a big deal. Wasn't a pro job or anything, but still.)

Nature sucks.
