Wednesday Ramblings

I HATE - Snorfling.  I am so tired of sniffing and sneezing and being stuffed up.  I had that flu thingy which of course turned into a sinus infection as they always do, but now I seem to be getting a cold on top of it all.  Do I really need sinuses?

I HATE - People who copy or print the same damn thing over and over and over.   Our office motto is "Death to trees!" 

I LOVE - That I am obligated to sing along and dance whenever "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" comes on the radio.  I can't not do it.  I also picture that cat food commercial that used that song in my head. 

I HATE - The fact that I have a cellular phone that is great for everything but making and receiving phone calls. 

I LOVE - That my college boyfriend calls me every year on my birthday to wish me a happy one. 

I HATE - That my stupid cell phone never lets me pick up his call to talk to him.  I will defeat you, cell phone, just you wait. 

I LOVE - That any Fleetwood Mac, Stevie Nicks, or Lindsey Buckingham song could be all about the relationship between Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham.  They aren't all about them.  But they could be.

I HATE - Spending a whole bunch of time to find some useless piece of useless information and then, after conveying said information, am asked "What about the prior year?"  Well, if you had asked me to find that out for the prior year I would have but you didn't.  And it's a useless piece of useless information so who really gives a fuck?

I LOVE - Being able to indulge a bad mood.  I'm being (fairly) nice and all on the outside, but inside my head is a different story.  Muwahahahahaha!

I HATE - People who don't know how to do their jobs.  I don't mean people who do things differently than I think they should be done, but those who have actual rules and stuff to their job that they either do not know about or don't feel like following.  I work with a lot of government entities where there are laws about how they do things.  Way too many couldn't care less about that, or that they are breaking the law.  Although...

I LOVE -- Being able to point out that if they don't do their job I'm going to institute proceedings to have them fined a few thousand dollars for each incident of dereliction of duty.  It's not often that I get to that, but there's no better way than to bring down some of these bitchy little power mongers in these tiny little counties.

I HATE - That feeling sick is making me so damn grumpy.  And the weather isn't helping.

I LOVE - That David Bowie's "Changes" remind me of ninth grade homecoming and cute boys in gray tuxes with pink ties and cummerbunds.  Good times.

  1. Aw, 9th grade homecoming. What a happy time. I loved the mid 80s.

  2. I would LOVE to see photos from 9th grade homecoming. Pretty please! :)

    I used to call an ex-boyfriend on his birthday every year. Once he got married I stopped because I didn't want to step on toes. He's divorced now. I should meet up with him in Florida. He was always so cute. Could he be the reason I love Jersey Shore? He's Vinny ... he's from New Jersey. No joke. I feared I was going to marry into the mob. Phew - bullet dodged!

    I just rambled. Don't mind me.

  3. Oh, and I will attest to the phone issues since I called and you didn't answer!

  4. I LOVE your posts ...
    I HATE it when you dont post everyday! :)
