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.

I've colored for years...

I love looking at the coloring stuff because it makes me smile, but it's nothing I could do due to my inability to stay in the lines, lack of aesthetic sense, and reluctance to do anything recreationally off line.  But then I realized I've been coloring for years, in my own way. These are my favorite (only) markers and I use them to check off tasks on my cleaning list each weekend.  Each color represents a 10 minute block of time although since I'm a free spirit sometimes two blocks of color to

More insipid crap...but it's Friday

With the news being what it is and all the sadness with the state of things I feel guilty for being happy it's Friday.  It's amazing how the petty bullshit feelings (good and bad) go on no matter how awful things are out there.  I don't know if that's a sign of callousness or humanity. And we can all stand to smile right about now and I defy anyone to look at the little guys below and NOT smile...it's a lot of cuteness.

This is the year - we're finally going to do it!

Yes!  You read that right...I'm finally losing my virginity!  My outdoor Christmas light virginity that is... Yeah, Yeah - my heart grew two sizes and I'm bursting with cheer or whatever.  Actually, I've always kind of wanted to in theory...but apathy is so enticing to me and laziness being such a core part of my being.  But as I was in the driveway last night waiting for the garage door to open I looked up and to what did my wondering eyes appear?  No, not Santa, nor a star in the east...but L

Grumpiness that fills me with JOY!

I am officially mad at all the Fjers from the UK who never hipped me to this awesome, awesome Grumpy series!  It's my new favorite thing ever!     https://youtu.be/EyTYmmkbsjw Grumpy Guide to Christmas. I love the BBC so much I want to have an affair with a network!

Meetings...anyone else bored yet?

I call two major, mandatory, cannot refuse, if your name is on the invite your ass needs to be in the conference room meetings a year.   That's not so many.  Once in the summer, once near end of year...it's not that intrusive to meet twice a year. For four hours.  Okay, that's a lot...but it's not my fault.  This is how we, as a whole, decided to meet this part of the standard so they aren't so much my meetings as our collective meetings upon which we agreed.  I just set the agenda, run the me

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

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

Christmas Glam...Puppy Style

The pups helped test the Christmas lights....one was a better sport about it than the other...       And only one wanted to model seasonal fashion. Yes, we did invite the kitties to participate in the fun.  They wanted none of it.

Ever try to keep a 130 lb dog on bed rest?

Our giant goofy dog, Dexter to his friends, has an injured CCL - the knee joint ligament similar to the ACL in humans.  Anti-inflamatories twice daily he's fine with...wrap a pill in liverwurst and he's a happy boy.  Being confined to the first floor...less happy.   But were not budging no matter how pathetic he looks when he begs.  No stairs or running for the next 6-8 weeks and the vet thinks he has a good chance of healing on his own without surgery.  So it's for his own good. hes actually

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

I'm 12 and I don't care ...I needed a laugh

So I'm a ridiculously immature person, but in researching an error message from Exchange I found this...hidden for language which would be offensive to some I know it doesn't help me resolve my issue but sometimes a random thing will just crack me up and I needed that. Thank you anonymous IT poster from 2014.

And life takes a turn for the worse...

Yes, blogging in real time about nothing.  Feel free to think I suck. Down the hall from me they are painting an office with oil based paint.  I am not the only one with a splitting headache, eyes starting to sting, and slightly nauseated.  Four people are FINE.  No headaches, no irritation...just dandy.  So since some are fine there is no reason to close the office since the headaches/etc can't be related to the paint or everyone would be sick...so no discussion of closing early, letting peop

Liability and bad smells

I'm so mad at Mr. Buffy I have no words. Anyone who knows me at all knows I am risk averse by nature.  I don't see the point in incurring any unnecessary liability in life.  No pools, no fireplaces, no brothels on the premises.  (I can't even imagine what an on site brothel would cost to insure.).  Those of you following along my little blog of useless information know we moved here several months ago.  My first house with a fireplace, which I consider attractive recipes for death and it was a

And...Success

Couple of minor issues but overall successful audit - thanks for the good thoughts, they helped. Nice to know I can still throw a hell of a Hail Mary when I need to.  Or two. Had a weird FJ moment over lunch today.  The auditors, exec management everyone eating and talking sports so I'm quiet as I don't know anything about sports...but topics moved on to stupid baby names since one of the coaches they were discussing is a woman with the first name of Muffett.  Someone says how names like Muffy

One day down - one to go

So far I'm still alive...let's hope I can maintain that through the rest of the audit and I get the result I'm looking for which Dilbert captured so beautifully. I thought yesterday went as well as can be expected, but I woke up today and my right eye is completely bloodshot where my son said it was too gross to look directly at me which happens when I have a migraine.  Did i mention I woke up with a migraine?  So I might be more stressed than I think.

Not a fan of red or green..let us go outside the box

I want this... and this... lim way too cheap to pay full seasonal prices for Christmas stuff...and my glow has already passed by the time after Christmas sales roll around so I've never gotten the tree.  The pink lights would be a no go since I'd be outvoted and I can't stage a coup since I do t do ladders.  But I really want a pink tree,  family is okay with a small one.   We do need another tree this year - the configuration of the new house demands two trees and with much higher ceilin

Passive Agression, or I am not In Maxhell

I knew this blog would come in handy one day, and that day has come.  Sometime between 10/28 - 10/30 I took some pics for a blog post (working title "Why Teri Maxwell had a better husband than I") which I never wrote because there is nothing funny about the neglect I suffer at the hands of my headship. But as I have no sense of time (for me everything happened in either 1986 or last Tuesday) the act of taking the pictures time stamped the start of the betrayal. Some background info you need in

Audit Prep (or WHERE THE FUCK IS MY ZEN?!)

I made this happen yesterday.  Literally. I honestly didn't mean to make someone kinda cry...welling up, not ugly cry...I pretended not to notice.  Even though I still felt bad...but I'm over it. I get that audits aren't enjoyable for most people... But it's no walk in the park for me either.  I don't like spending so much time out of my comfort zone  I think the entire company wants to shove me back into my comfort zone...my pink clipboard and Hello Kitty lanyard is striking fear into

'Tis the Season...for Audits

Most of my job involves IT.  IT is what I do, it's how I self-identify, it's how I spend the majority of most days.  But there is another part of my position which doesn't take up a lot of time because it's easier...but when it does hijack my work life it does it full force. I'm the head of QA.  Quality Assurance.  Lead Internal Auditor.  I have a clip board and everything.   For those of you unfamiliar with this highly sought after position (which no one wanted and I got by default because I

Naughty Kitty...Why I'll Never Sleep Again

About a year ago I discovered that ASMR videos and sleep phones cured by problems sleeping.  No meds, no warm milk...nothing knocks me out as fast as a go to ASMR vid (it's the weirdest thing about me.) Yeasteday I discovered that one of my cats hates me and decided to sabotage my attempts to sleep by biting through the cord of my sleep phones... so the soft headphones which had become my idol (far more than Teri loves Pepsi) are no longer working.  Actually working just enough to be a tease

Nothing to say...just some cuteness

I don't have anything to say tonight, unlike me as I'm usually as loquacious as I am profound...but this pic makes me smile so I thought I would share. Doesn't she look just resigned to being her baby brother's headrest? This was at our old house the day he leaned how to climb on the hose box under the window and scare the shit out of his momma!

Sacred Tradition and Shiny Things

My dad wasn't the warm and fuzzy type but he loved us so much and really hated to see us unhappy.  But lacking the tools to talk about feelings he took a four pronged approach whenever I was upset.   Issue a directive on what I needed to do to fix the problem if he couldn't do it for me. Blame the source of my unhappiness for being an idiot  Take me out to eat Buy me something shiny Some people need more depth in their parenting, but this totally worked for me at every age.  I lost my paren

Cookies for inner peace...

Unlike the amazing @laPapessaGiovanna I don't bake stuff that looks like it should be in an artisan bakery.  My stuff is more homey which is code for messy but yummy. With the upsetting news events and some problems at work which have me completely clenched I kicked off the holiday baking season for some much needed stress relief. As always started with the far and away favorite our family's kolachkis.  Those of you familiar with pastries of Polish descent might be familiar.  There are two mai
