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.

Earworm infection - I need a lawyer...

    @Whoosh in one of her posts she's used the phrase "puts a smile on my face everytime" which started an itch in the back of my brain.  I heard the faint melody of a song from the distant past with those lyrics start to softly play in my head...but I couldn't remember the song. i googled and no luck, I tried to force myself to recall which never works....but while loading the dishwasher t

I think my car made a friend...

A couple times a week I see this red Camero SS on my commute.  Usually we're both sitting in traffic crawling along because other people insist on being on the roads when we're using them.  But once in a while traffic is nothing and we can actually drive like people and then this happens... He smokes me.  I admit it, I won't go up over 90 but when I'm in the 88-89 range on an open stretch he passes me like I'm standing still.  But he gives me this little friendly

And next time I'll stay home and set fire to my money...

The youngest pooch hasn't been himself last two days - his appetite way down, eating grass, vomiting a couple of times, seemed constipated.   Today our usually exuberant pup was so lethargic and heartbreakingly sedentary we took him to the vet to see if he ate something inedible...again.  (We do what we can to keep things out of reach but he has a plastic addiction.) 1.5 hours and $280 dollars later X-rays show no blockage and a clean bill

Cleaning issue....

My biggest problem cleaning is finding something I want playing in the background while I do it.  For a while it's been the Tudor Farm series because no matter how much I have to do, I don't have to restiff the mattresses with fresh straw. I still love the weekend.   no sarcasm, I do.  I consider cleaning to be a way of reconnecting with my house I miss so much during the week while I go off to that awful place so I can

I'm a worrier...

I worry.  Sometimes I worry that there is stuff I need to worry about that I'm not worried about. So last night something happened - non optimal but no big deal. However with the initial set of facts I thought it was a really BFD.  A couple of selfies from my wee hour panic last night:    and after I fixed it spent the night staring at the clock willing myself to sle

Today it was funny...

So at least 7 people came at me as soon as I got in this morning because the front desk copier wasn't working.  There was mild panic ...but not yet approaching mayhem. Turned out to be a very complicated issue that only a technical genius could resolve... It was unplugged. I don't mean the Cat5 was unplugged in this type of scenario...   I mean the outle

MBTI - why isn't type a protected class?

I know it's naval gazing, but I like categorizing people.   And I have scientifically determined that ESFJs are the most annoying people in the workplace...despite how much they like it there... Where I would like them better if they would just remember... or we can just... You may find be less pleasant than my usual sunny personality...

I'm no longer alone...

Someone else is here in the office now, but that's okay...I'm still the only woman which means private bathroom and none of this.... I don't envy fancypants executives in the movies except for one thing I covet...their private bathroom.  This is as close as I get (although I still have to walk down the hall...such is a life of an office drone.)

Last one - want to end on a positive note...

So I got some hair product for Christmas that promised miracles...from a loved one who is an insider in the beauty industry (aka my daughter in cosmetology school.) I am in my 40's and believe exactly zero claims of miracle anything but my God...I used them today for the first time and my hair has never looked this good...ever.  Not ever.  And it smells amazing.  I can't even focus because I'm too busy sniffing my hair and marveling at how silky it is.

Until the phone rang...

And because I can't say this to the person who needs to hear it I post it here... Stupid phone - why aren't phone calls obsolete yet?  AND WHY CAN'T PEOPLE STOP FUCKING WITH THEIR SETTINGS AND LEAVE THINGS ALONE?! I would try an office version of this... But they hate cats.  Nothing will work.

The silence is deafening...

I don't work in a cubicle but this is what it feels like at work today.. . I'd rather be home, but second best is definitively an otherwise empty office.

Of course I'm not done!

I'm cranky, tired, my feet hurt, I thirsty but too exhausted to get up but no, I didn't finish my shopping. stockings - done groceries for dinner - done (spiral ham and beef roast) jammies for kids - dome cash for kids - done (cute tiny penguin gift bags) husband - nothing  boys - couple small things need something fun for each &

I lack the ability to learn...

So every year I know this is my busiest time.  Not only am I working more hours, but weird hours so if you're sitting there judging me for posting during the day thinking, "doesn't she have a job?" ...knock it off.  You weren't logged in with me at 3:00 am applying and testing hotfixes were you?  No you were not.  Actually keep judging, I don't care. Anyway every single year I swear I'm going to be one of those awesome organized people who has all their Christmas

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

My mom...and Christmas ambivalence

Another post about my love/hate relationship with Christmas. Inside part of me really does enjoy the decorating and baking...the lights above all.  I am nothing if not a huge proponent of shiny and sparkly things.  The dichotomy is I get so moody this time of year.  I'm pretty introverted irl in the best of times, but the time of year I most want to retreat into my own head is the time the social expectations for interaction and cheer increase.  The dichotomy kick

Advent Calendars..if only all time management devices had chocolate...

The upside of getting your advent calendar late is being able to open days 1-12 at once...less restraint required. I don't typically like milk chocolate, but this calendar is from Poland and it's not bad.     Never once in my life have I managed to behave and open one per day.  Sometimes I'd forget for a few days and have to catch up...then eat a week

Spiceworks and FJ - my world's are colliding and I couldn't be happier!

Just got my first ad for Spiceworks on FJ a few minutes ago which made me grin like an idiot. Kind of a waste of an ad since I already love and use Spiceworks daily (and have for years) and I don't need the sell...but I love when I see ads for stuff I personally endorse.  Which I am sure means loads to the 3 people reading this.   Spiceworks is an excellent IT community with great apps which help IT people manage their networks, etc.  Soft

Daylight savings time every single hour today?

I swear someone has been going around and resetting time back one hour every hour today...I am positive I've been at work for about 97 hours but the clocks aren't backing up my assertions. Here's another cat who speaks for me... (yes, I know I can use words rather then recycle this kind of thing but why would I do that when this little guy is so cute?)

It's gonna be a long day...

If I could remember to stop by the drug store to get my Adderall before I run out I probably wouldn't need it.  Clearly someone else knows the feeling. So for the rest of today?   Enough of my controversial ADHD postivive opinions...my POV has made more than one person write me off but I just use my shitty attention span to forget to care.

      Nebraska's new football coach is an evangelical bullshit artist who participates in "Man Up Ministries" conferences in the off season. Their motto is "Fighting for Biblical Manhood". Excuse me while I go vomit.

      Long time no visit…
      COVID has finally caught up with me. Dad tested positive first, last Friday, then my mother, brother and I all tested positive today. Main symptom is feeling really really tired. Hopefully it doesn’t get much worse 🤞
