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.

Do I love my kids that much, or is it just Stockholm syndrome?

Okay...so I felt a little...taken for granted yesterday due to a minor thing that most days wouldn't bother me.  Hormones and Mother's Day not a great combo. Then I fired up the wayback machine in my head and remembered how much more effort I put into celebrating stuff with my in-laws, friends, boyfriends, etc. when I was young and how very little thought I put into what I did for my parents.   On the surface it looked like those other people were more important to me because of the ef

This is a true story...

Exposition:  this dongle runs software that makes task X slightly faster.  Task X is approximately 5-8% of affected user's job.  Task X can be done with other software they use for other tasks all the time, but it's admittedly more cumbersome to do that way.  On an inconvenience scale of 1-100 with 1 being, moving aside to let someone pass you in the hall and 100 being HOLY SHIT, I HAVE TO DIG A DITCH WITH A DEMITASSE SPOON?!  it's a 7.  TLDR - affected user spent 30-40 minutes today doing

Because I know people are losing sleep wondering...

The two lilac bushes I finally planted (well, pointed to the spots where my minions planted them) died.  So I finally get off my ass after 20+ years and make the effort to point...and they aren't even grateful enough to stay alive.  This is why I don't like plants...they refuse to obey. Yesterday there were 2 ducks in my neighbors yard.  Fenced yards, we don't live near a lake or anything but there they were just quacking at us.  The dogs were confused.  How did they get here? I br

There is a right way and a wrong way to do everything...

If I find the roll in the bathroom hanging under again instead of correcting it I'm going to do this... and of course I'm talking about the bathroom at work.  At home 3 out of 5 of us think this is the proper way...when they bother at all.   It's not rocket surgery people...replace the roll properly and no one will get hurt.

It's real...I need somebody to hold me...

I hung on way too long to the hope Trump was just a wannabe Kutcher punking our collective asses.   But this shit is real. Someone send in the ferrets.  Speaking of...Buzzfeed has 16 Ferrets with Better Hair than Trump.  At least we still have journalists on the side of light... https://www.buzzfeed.com/joannaborns/xx-ferrets-that-have-better-hair-than-donald-trump?bftw&utm_term=.adLAkJ7Ek#.jjbp4mrZ4

Now I lay me down to sleep...

I'm pretty convinced that whole "if I should die before I wake" thing played a fairly large role in why I'm so fucked up today.  And not my mom's best parenting move.  When you are raising a pain in the ass you'd get more quiet time if you didn't teach said pita to fear sleep.  Just saying. Im no longer afraid of dying in my sleep...in fact it's become the goal to shoot for when my time is up....but since this has happened the last several nights, I now have a different reason to fear sleep

If ads are a snapshot in time of who we were...

It's amazing any of us are here, because our grandparents and those who came before were crazy people judging on the print ads. First - they were very anti-VD which I can totally get behind...so to speak... This one..you know she's just a good time gal because she's winking...nothing more whorish than moving your eyelid up and down in the general direction of another person...   Gay totally did mean something different back then...either that or Midol had very different s

Things a little rocky with you and your man...

I don't have any words of wisdom, except to not follow the unsafe and blindingly sexist advice from ads of yesteryear which told women to flood their neither regions with Lysol to keep their husband happy. http://www.washingtoncitypaper.com/blogs/sexist/2009/05/14/vintage-lysoldouching-advertisement-corner/ Here's just one example:     Walked out on his wife and child because she didn't douche with Lysol?  I need to know exactly how good his junk smelled and I

Here's my problem with Cinderella...

Why did the fairy godmother get such a craptastic outfit?   And if you're wondering what it would look like irl... Glinda from the Wizard of Oz was a fairy godmother in essence (if not title) and she got a princess gown.  Complete with sleeves, as many women of a certain age appreciate.  And she did a shitty job for her charge...you had the power to return home all along my ass...a heads up at the start of the movie would have saved a lot of trouble.  She didn't even give Dorothy a

The difference between 20 and 12 is...

If you said 8 then you're my kind of person because that's logical.  If you lack logic you're probably an editor for Business Insider Magazine. One article called 20 Warning signs you're burnt out at work http://www.businessinsider.com/20-warning-signs-that-youre-burnt-out-at-work-2015-7 links to another entitled 12 Signs you're suffering from job burnout In case you're wondering I am totally over achieving on 20 signs thing...except for 18 (because just not talking about i

I left my concentration around here somewhere...

I just came out of a meeting about job costing software where I paid attention for an hour ...on Friday afternoon so cut me some slack in the distracted department.  Things that made me happy lately: My foray into side effect hell makes me appreciate the way I feel SO much, even when it's not great.   I bought a bunch of cute new tops for summer. I finally got the new pink lilac bushes in the ground* and so far they are still alive. I think, who knows.  I keep forgettin

Bonnie and Clyde...what DID they do with the money?

We all know about Bonnie and Clyde, murdering theives who probably smelled pretty badly most of the time seeing as their access to showers was spotty at best. So why the wool suits in summer in the south?  Really? So I fell down a rabbit hole reading about them recently (and if you think the FJ community is drama filled we got nothing on them) and I have a question: What the hell did they do with the cash? I know some consider them folk heroes due to the great depression and

Ooops...sorry!

I am normally a great driver.  Really.   But today I accidentally tapped the car in front of me.  And when I say tap I mean one of those, 'did I hit that or just think I did?' things.  I wasn't texting, or playing with the radio, or anything...I had an itch on my toe I was trying to itch by rubbing it against the inside of my shoe and my foot slipped off the brake... Really glad it was minor so I won't have to explain that in court.   Anyway, the gentleman was super nic

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

I'm all about the meetings...

I had three scheduled for today.  That's right...three.  On a Friday.   Yes, I do believe scheduling those is a form of self-harm.   One of them was scheduled for earlier...but I moved it because I had other important things to do first... And the one later afternoon was cancelled due to someone else's scheduling issue...didn't much like that guy before, but I do now. In order to move these things along I have some plans.  Did some pre-meeting communication with key p

TMI - do not read if freaked out by feminine sourced misery

You know how some women glide from one stage of life to the next effortlessly because their hormone changes are perfectly calculated and naturally administered with little disruption bringing only the good aspects of what is yet to be with none of the suffering? Yeah, me neither.  And if you're such a woman be grateful and I'm happy for you, but if you leave comments to that effect on this post I'll leave mean memes on your status.  Fair warning. My hormones never bothered to calibrate

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

I swear I think about important stuff...

But not today.  I'm dragging ass so more superficial crap from me.  Our vendor for data/voice service at work did maintenance last night so I was up at 3:00 AM testing to make sure we had phones/ internet/ and that they didn't jack with the DNS pointers (as has happened in the past) so there were no surprises this morning.  Then I got a 5:00 am call from someone about something else...so not a great nights sleep.   Because I apparently can't stop thinking of the bathroom I paid no attention

This is making me irrationally happy...

This is the exact floor tile we had in the house I grew up.  Exactly. The title was "actual tile from somebody's actual pink bathroom."  Like this wasn't a perfectly normal choice. And you know what, it held up; 39 years and not a chipped tile.   How on earth did this go out of fashion?   I am rivaling Rick Arndt for the most nostaligic person every...but I miss that! That's it - I need a time my time machine.

This won't go well...

I know nothing about plants except that they hate me.  Really you could not find someone with less knowledge on any topic.  Go ahead and try...I'll wait. See? But the tldr is when I was a kid we had a lilac bush and I loved it - every time I see one it takes me to the best parts of my childhood.  Every house I've lived in I've intended to plant one or two in memory of my parents and never did.  Lazy...that's why...do I need to reexamine this now? Anyway I just ordered two.  Yep -

I've got sitcom issues...

Just to be clear I'm not snarking on the looks of  a child...I'm snarking on the stylists or whomever let this one go on tv with her hair like this... I had straight, hard to style hair and as a squirmy kid had my share of haircuts with uneven bangs and god knows what kind of layers happening down the sides...but no one put me on TV like that!  No one on the set for the entire time she was on the series had a brush?

      Happy Shavuot to all those who celebrate! I have no idea why, but for some reason God commands us to eat ice cream. Well, dairy. So eat cheese! Eat pizza! Eat ice cream! Eat cheesecake! It has no calories because God commands us to do so!

      I know it’s just a beauty contest but this is the 4th time Jamaica was snubbed in favour of 5 contestants who were clones (with the exception of Peru) 
      Still can’t believe Mexico won. Even Olivia Culpo was looking at the results confused😂
      Shoutout to Haiti, Canada, Thailand and Myanmar who were also snubbed.

      I've somehow invested in this year's Miss Universe pageant. After watching the prelims my favorites are: 
      1. Jamaica (naturally lol but she's doing well)
      2. Haiti (love her energy) 
      3. Great Britain 
      4. Bahamas 
      5. Canada (a beauty! absolutely stunning!)
      6. Japan (adorable) 
      7. Cameroon (also adorable w/ an amazing costume) 
      8. Myanmar (seems sweet)
      9. Vietnam 
      10. Thailand 
      11. USA (I'm rooting for everybody black lol) 
      Not a fan of these but I think they'll place: South Africa, Mexico, Columbia, Venezuela, Puerto Rico, Peru, Australia, Denmark, Ireland, Dom Rep. 
      If they make Zozi (the current Ms. Universe) give the crown to a white girl from Pretoria, I will scream.
