About this blog

Because I don't opine nearly enough elsewhere.  Actually this is a weird little repository for things that amuse me...which don't always amuse other people but I'm okay with that.

You know those people who aren't completely self-absorbed? How do they get like that?

Are they saints?  Born without the asshole gene?  What?  Because the irony of my coming to terms with how completely self centered I am is that in order to come to terms with it I need to focus on....me. This would never happen in my real life because I live in Utopia - but let me tell you a fictional story about a make-believe work place.... So the cliff note version is our protagonist was sick yesterday and righteously pissed off that one day of her much treasured 4 day weekend was spent on

You can read by the light of me...

So several people irl have mentioned to me how happy I look lately, nice to see me so relaxed etc. Guess hiding my stress isn't my strong suit. But what was funny is two different people on seperate occasions mentioned that I was "glowing."  One said I was "absolutely glowing" and the other said "you have this radiant glow about you lately."  Kind of a werid thing to hear once, but twice?   Guess I'm not very cool st concealing happiness either... So either I've been expose

Yesterday....suuuuucked...

Exposition:  Monday night at about 6:00 pm I took a low dose of Effexor prescribed for hot flashes and other peri-menopause issues.  After an hour or two it knocked me on my ass...like a handful of Vicodin.  Like crashed on the couch and needed to be physically walked to the bedroom because way to out of it to be trusted walking past the stairs... Wake up the next morning all tingly...and not in a good way...but not necessarily bad yet.  Just like floaty.  Then I got up... the best t

Yes, I'm looking down my nose at you...

But don't take it personally...I just got my first pair of bifocals and I'm just trying to see the screen.   between my normal rbf and fairly aloof demeanor this haughty pose to try and see is not going to help my rep and a cuddle bunny. i put it off way too long and I'm enjoying my new found clarity of vision except in the mirror.  My natural 20:100 and 20:200 blur takes years off my face and being able to see put them right back. i long for the days where life was boring ...I mi

Yawn

I was trying to be a less outwardly negative person, but that's not really working so fuck it. A certain company I use for my data and phones at work (rhymes with Bombast) was doing maintenance on our usage area last night between 2:00 and 5:00 AM today.  This affected over 350,000 customers many of which are businesses.  Many of those businesses have it set up, like me, to forward calls to a cell phone in case of service going down. I'm t

Why won't my headship forbid me to work?

I want me one of those head ships that insist I stay home and tend to the house and the kids.  Mine lets me go out unchaporoned everyday to a horrible place filled with horrible people. i just got home from work about 20 minutes ago.  Nothing like a 16+ hour day to make life as a fundy seem pretty relaxing. 16 hours of this...   another 5 minutes of this before I fall asleep... i really need better balance in my life.

Why is anybody anywhere?

So I pull into the parking lot today at the same time as one of my bosses...after some pleasantries she looks at me and asks... to which I reply... How many people do you know who could come up with a quote from The Miz on the fly like that?   Actually I only know him from The Real World/Road Rules and had no idea I was channeling him until I went in search of an amusing pic.  So that means he's either established some kind of mind control over me (pretty neat trick for someon

Why do so many animals want to be the monopoly man?

Or Mr. Peanut?  Is it like a club?  I've never know a person to own a top hat unironically but now it appears my pets are the only ones in the world without formal wear?  Are Monopoly guy and Mr. Peanut super heroes in the animal kingdom? i don't have the answer but the evidence is pretty startling...

Why can't people just obey?

How many times do I have to say if you want it backed up store it on the server?  When I make proper storage to the server your default save path and you go out of your way to store it to the desktop...when I have a signed user agreement that I only backup server stored documents and you understand what that means and have assumed the risk of documents you stored rogue... A lot.  A lot is the number of times I have to say that. But I'm off to the freezer with my paper towels, ziplock bag, and

Who doesn't own an oven mitt?

Two of my kids went to have Thanksgiving with their father (my ex) yesterday.   Actually, bring Thanksgiving would be more accurate. the plan was for my daughter to make the one meal she can cook by herself, which isnt Thanksgivingy in the least.  My ex kept pushing to go out to eat, but the kids told him repeatedly that it wasn't going to happen.   An aside - we believe in avoiding going to stores, restaurants, etc on the big holidays as to not contribute to more and more places staying open

When trouble gets in the way of the news...

So in all the attention to the troubles I neglected to keep everyone abreast of what was really important yesterday: National Awkward Moments Day     National Lacy Oatmeal Cookie Day   National Sloppy Joe Day (which should be called National thing I like but most people make wrong day.  Most people forget the sweet

When I grow up...

As a mental exercise I shook off the constraints of actual education, skill, experience...you know, reality...and asked myself what I REALLY want to do for a living: SAHCryptozologist - I would look for apocryphal creatures, but within the confines of my house and the internet.  So Nessie shows up in my utility sink I'm on it. forensic anthropologist (and work with Sue Black) genius programmer Technical writer - only if it paid really well and I never had to leave my

What's your flouncing style?

There are as many ways to flounce as there are people who get butthurt over nothing.  What's your flouncing style? Fancy? Aggressive? Glamorous? Classic? Youthful? No fuss? Pithy? Or are you more of a jetsetter kind of flouncer? Do you helpfully offer to help others flounce with you? Here's to flouncers everywhere who don't always get the credit they deserve by making the forum a better place...by leaving. Some tried to eff

What time is it?

It wasn't even 6:00 this morning when I got a text from an end user in the office saying the entire network was down.  No email, no erp, no internet, shared drives...nada. Which is the most relaxing message to wake up to ever. Log in and lo and behold my beloved network is functioning just beautifully.  Packets switching, data compiling, just humming along.   Text the user back to ask him

WHAT IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE?!

So my son had a mishap at work with only one logical explanation To the person who found them, put them in a managers office, which was going to be locked and no on there to open it when his shift was over... They are CAR KEYS.  Anyone who found them knew someone needed them to get home.  It wasn't even complicated.  They have a bright chrome symbol on the fob indicating it they belong to a fairly recognizable vehicle... Parked in eye shot of the front door of the building.

What happened to me?

I used to be able to pull all nighters like it was nothing...now a couple of nights of shattered sleep and I'm not entirely sure I know where I live anymore. A selfie... This isn't bad...I could get very religious before the end of the afternoon... I won't admit to how long I've done this today.... My desk is more than big enough to do this...if not for the damn open door policy... Every nap I refused as a kid, I want back right now... I'd better not get w

What day is it today?

On my feet cooking and cleaning all day yesterday you'd think I'd be grateful to get to work but... Realization... Acknowledging my feelings... My wish for you all... And finally...my gift to you...

We've missed some holidays...

I've been behind on posting the holidays because...I get bored and find other mindless things to amuse me.  So a quick catch-up: March 20th - National Ravioli Day March 21st - National Common Courtesy and French Bread Days March 22nd - National Bavarian Crepes and National Goof Off Day (so like every day, sans crepes?) March 23rd - ooh - big day - needs bullet points National Chia Day   National Near Miss Day
