And another thing - I don't understand Christmas lights either. DH seems to LOVE them, wants them in every color for every occasion (orange for Halloween...). All I can say is, if you like it so much, do it yourself (AND take it down in a reasonable timeframe tyvm.)

Womp womp.

My first friday evening off of work in (what feels like) forever, and of course it falls during dead week! Ughhhh. So, I'm spending it writing a paper instead of doing something fun.

Let's not address the fact that I probably would spend it at home watching a movie and eating crappy (but delicious) food, if I could. That is completely beside the point!

In other news... My department is being rewarded for high customer satisfaction or something, so they're giving everyone FOOD in honor of us, at some point this week! Yesss. Hopefully I'm working when they do!

Ok, now that I've complained an adequate amount and wasted enough time on the internet, I can now begin said paper.

Ok, maybe one more little break. A girl's gotta eat.

Dogs might piddle on them, too.

I was wondering about dog piddles and real trees. I went in to pick up some stuff for Calvin at the vet's office today and they had the biggest monstrosity of a flocked real tree I've ever seen, seriously took up half the darn waiting room. It got me to wondering if they have any doggie accidents on it.

Well, this week (not totally) confirmed that my coworker is irritated at me and I'm still clueless. But I realized that it isn't worth trying to find out right now because 1) could be big can of worms 2) might rock the boat or 3) I could be wrong.

It didn't really bother me and I've been just as nice and polite to her like always. I said goodnight before leaving and she said goodnight back. Who knows?

Another thing that I realized is that I'm not really as concerned with what people at work think of me. They've literally seen me at my worst and nothing could ever be quite as bad or embarrassing as that. Literally seeing me fall to the ground in a crying, hysterical heap and not being able to leave my desk because I couldn't stop crying or shaking. That's been nearly a year ago and that hasn't happened since then. I am definitely doing better and heading in the right direction.


Uh oh, I need to back to clowning because I don't want to ruin my reputation.....

WORDS ARE FLOWING FROM MY FINGERTIPS! IT'S LIKE MAGIC.

Chances are, they make absolutely no sense, and I'll fail.

BUT THEY'RE WORDS, GOSH DARNIT. THE PAGE IS FILLING UP!

Who, me? Well, now that you've asked, I just spent 3 hours at a fundamentalists house so I am pretty f***ing infuriated and s***y. You?

Woohoo - I won pancetta and bacon from a Serious Eats giveaway!

I don't think I've ever won anything before. I'm tickled.

I... Omg. I want to scream. I will refrain from repeating all the stuff I just had to sit through. I do mean had to. I was driven by someone else.

I have already had to warn my best friend, who will be over in a few, to over look me if I start screaming "GODLESS PEOPLE! BABY KILLER!" and many other things in my sleep tonight.

Inception is such a good movie. But I had to see it 2-3 times to get certain parts.
