HAH. That always happens to me.

I can only speak it when I'm not under pressure.

slightly off topic

Once a man saw my name and was like "oh you have a french name do you know that?"

me "yes, I do"

him "oh you must be french blah blah blah blah *French language*"

me: "mais non"

him *laughs*

me :



DAMN my hand burns like cray, I'll never make pizza again.

This pain is unreal, I'd go to the emergency room if my hands didn't look normal, BUT WHY THEY BURN SO MUCH.

I had a small conversation (one sided) with someone who I'm pretty sure only speaks Spanish yesterday. I didn't realize it until it hit me all her responses were "Thank you."

I opened two doors for her to get her massive stroller into JC Penney and after the 4th thank-you it hit me that may be the only English she knows. haha

OMG. This place is bleeding us dry. I used to love it. There was low pressure. Now it is high pressure and you need to buy this and that. It has turned into everything i hate.

It doesn't strike me as odd. Chinese preparations of ribs are often deep-fried (though steamed is possibly the most popular one). They're of course cut in much smaller pieces than American barbecue style ribs.

Ha, ha, ha, Food Pyramid!

I just ate a metric s-ton of spinach and arugula.

You and your warnings about "getting enough vegetables."

I laugh at your warnings!

I don't understand what'a happening, Mojo. How are you in any way to blame or to be charged $ for maintaining the radiators in your apartment building?
In my lease, I'm responsible for keeping the temperature above 20C in the winter. If I do not and the pipes freeze (and burst), I am responsible for any damages that occur to those pipes. Any place in this city with water heating puts that in their lease.

But I have verbal and email confirmation that this is in no way my fault, and that they can not and will not charge me for the repairs (although the pipes didn't burst, so the repair was basically putting a blow dryer on it to heat the water in the pipe and get it flowing again).

The heat issues were (I think) caused by lowered water pressure in the pipe from leaks in my apartment and the one next door, plus the super cold outside weather.

Also, I think after the last place, where every bit of repairs he did he tried to charge us for, even if it wasn't our fault, I'm a little paranoid about it. I've been taking extra precautions to cover my butt rather then worry about whether they'll go... "hmm, there was a freezing pipe and they can't prove they had the thermostat set correctly, so we can charge them for the repairs!"

I listen to men talking and they don't even have to be saying something douchey for me to think "ugh, tool". Ugh, why are so many men so annoying and douchey? It's bad enough that they're ugly! Of course, maybe they're annoying BECAUSE they're ugly!!!

Has anyone done a recap of 2012?

I know there's a book called I Can't Believe They Said That! and it has to have some quotes from me. I feel like (I know I am) I am one of those people who you can't believe you heard them quite right. Ignorant, politically incorrect, uncaring, unsympathetic, and just all around crazy too! I need fine print on my forehead that reads: 'If the lips are a-flappin' in the brain nothin' is happin'!
That's all. 2013 is a new year.

I'm watching the Katie Couric show and this woman got black market buttock silicone injections.

In the end she got a staph infection and they had to amputate her hands, buttocks and legs.

The woman that gave her the injections used silicone you can get at the hardware store.

Wow. Just...wow.

Yeah, my mom does that.

I don't even have to listen to men to know. I just look at them, the way they carry themselves: douche, screaming douche. I catch a whiff of them and it's the unmistakable scent of Eau de Toolbag.

I just made the mistake of reading emails from my cousin from the past few years and just totally lost it.

The Dean of the prep school he went to wrote that he was like a young man out of another era, "perhaps the 1940's." That's how I have always felt about myself. He was a kindred spirit.

I'm so sad right now. He was only 38. I'm so glad he isn't suffering anymore. I know how much pain he was in. I just keep seeing his face.

It's amazing the outpouring of love and support his wife has received. It's clear how much everybody loved and admired him.

I got 473 pages into my 2200+ color copies and I found it broke again.



So at the beginning of the project I send out an email to the whole office letting them know that they can't print to that copier until Im done. So Take Two happened this afternoon and I let everyone know that hopefully it would go smoothly and I'd be done quickly.



I guess I should look at the bright side of things and know that at least I've gotten over 600 out since yeterday.

I wonder how many copies I will be able to make tomorrow before I break it.

Sigh.

Every time I see the "Are you mixed" thread I expect it to say "Are you mixed up" and I want to answer yes. Oy vey.

Okay, wow. WTF, registrar's office staff at my college. I get an email telling me I was running up on being late for paying this random $10 charge and I'm all "Um wut I graduated in 2011." So I email and am told it's for my diploma, which I know was paid because my mom and I were like "Who can get to their CC first?" and she won and I saw her enter it. So literally I just ask about this and dude says that this $10 I haven't paid is for my diploma but there was another $10 paid for something else. I'm like wait, what? and ask him what the other charge was for. And his response? That you can't get charged for the diploma unless you're billed for it, "which is what I'm trying to get you to understand." Dude. DUDE. You can't say that unless you've been trying to get someone to understand something. That implies that information being given prior to that moment and the person not understanding.

He then hands me off while I'm still wondering why the **** he jumped to treating me like I'm being belligerent and stupid when all I did was politely ask for clarification about something. Then the chick I talk to keeps on telling me that it's impossible for me to have paid the bill already and says if I can find a receipt I should call back, and when I say that I'll look for a receipt, she's all "Well, it's impossible, but if you manage to find one, I'd love to hear about it." And I'm like WTF srsly why are you responding like I've been giving attitude?? What is this condescension? Why is everyone I talk to responding to "Hey, I don't know why this charge is here, what's up?" and a follow-up "Okay, so if we can't pay until billed, what was the other charge?" as if I'm calling up screaming about how I don't want to pay something?

I don't care what kind of rude, blockheaded caller they got before me. There was absolutely no reason for them to respond to simple, quick and polite questions by talking down to me and acting like I'd been bothering them for ages when I had just given them my name. Karma ought to bite them in the ass with a deluge of the dumbest callers ever for the entire month of February. There was no excuse for that behavior.
