This weather is just excessive. So done. Can't wait to bask in the warmth of 80+ degree days.

All you misandrists must be getting to me because today I really hated men.

For one: why are they so spatially clueless? Is it all that testosterone? I swear, in my yoga class (where I'm supposed to be trying not to hate anything) this guy was taking up SO much space. And when I would shift to the front or back of my mat to allow both of us some more room, he would shift too! Maddening. If he had been a woman, odds are she and I would have had our personal space issues sorted out within the first 5 minutes. Spatial awareness: it's a thing.

Then there was the guy after class who pretended to move over so I could sit on the bench and put on my boots. But really all he did was move his mat aside a bit. He was sitting with his knees akimbo, taking up 3/4 of the bench. And not doing anything, just sitting there, staring off into space. Meanwhile I have half my ass on the bench, half in mid-air, struggling with my socks and boots.

Also, I extra hate it when men sit with their knees wide open, crotch worldward. Hate. It.

And WHY does SO think it's okay not to go grocery shopping and get defensive when I gently point out there isn't much food to eat? And that the succinct shopping list I made Thursday has gone largely ignored? I do my part around here, cleaning the constant supply of dirty dishes, cleaning the bathroom and cat box, and a million other things. You, on the other hand, played your video game all day Sunday, all the while commenting on how you should really be working on that project due this week. So, no, you don't get out of grocery shopping on Monday because you "have to work " Guess what? You may have to work, but I NEED to eat! You can carve out 30 minutes to go to the grocery store, FFS.

Men are dumb. Misandry, party of many.

Thanks fifi. I'm about to catch the cat and then haul my arse halfway across the country.

Is it wrong that I'm concerned about the money I won't get from work because of this? It shouldn't matter but money is tight right now. #baddaughter.

Okay, now I'm getting mad for you.
Thank you! I didn't like him making the money comment but I couldn't put my finger on exactly why. And yes, it's because he's speculating about my income, and on top of it, inferring that I don't make much.

You know what, forget an email, I'm calling the manager of that particular store. The Lady Boss wants to have a conversation with him.
Cailin, don't forget to inform the manager any male that wishes to speak to you needs to ask permission to speak to "Ultimate Supreme Lady Boss."

(((((((curlylaura))))))) I hope your dad's surgery went well. Please don't be too hard on yourself for the things you think - we can't really control what pops into our minds and sometimes it's like our brains try to make the big bad things go away by thinking little bad things so we'll beat ourselves up and quit worrying. Except we don't quit worrying, we just feel like we're horrible people to boot.

((((((CurlyCandadian)))))) I am so sorry. I'm crying reading this because I know how it hurts. It feels surreal that it's been two months since my own grandpa died. They're interring his ashes at the naval base tomorrow and part of me still just expects him to be hanging out at his house reading in bed or sitting on the couch with pictures to show me.

I don't even know how I'm going to get dressed in the morning. My mom said to wear something Grandpa liked me in. IDK, he never seemed to care what I wore. If someone comments on what I wear, like if it isn't nice enough because I don't have anything warm and also nice, I may have a meltdown. It'll be bad enough being there without somehow managing to do it wrong. Basically, I'm trying to plan so as not to break down over a damn sweater like Willow in "The Body." Also, I am worried about all this logistical stuff about the ceremony and I hate that I'll have to deal with my father alone to get to my grandma's to get in the van because my mom's going to get my brother from school. Dealing with him sucks in general and he has a "who cares? stop whining" attitude about his constant lateness that is entirely different from my "oh crap crap I'm so sorry everybody I hate when I do this" kind of lateness and therefore I'm worried that he might make me late and they'll leave without us because they have to and I won't see my grandpa interred. I don't think he'll drag his feet for this but still, if he's not ready in time, I swear to god I will steal the car and drive it there, lack of license be damned.

Thelio, I'm so sorry the cancer beast is attacking your family. (((((HUGS))))) It does its best to tear everything apart. I hope the doctors can head it off in your cousin, that your one aunt doesn't turn out to have it and that in the case of the aunt who's in the worst shape, she has as much lucid, relatively comfortable time as possible.

Maria, you've had to take on so much all by yourself. Here's hoping your situation improves, even if it's just your boss being less of a buttface, because you deserve better.

All of the curlies who've lost loved ones, I am sending you lots of hugs! So many of us are hurting right now.

Ugh, scrills, I hate that you have to deal with this crap right now. Why can't there be some universal indicator that people who are too busy hurting need to be left alone for awhile?

Hugs to CL, CC, and Scrills

****

WHY am I sneezing so much lately? It feels like allergies, but how the heck can there even be pollen? There is a solid 6 inches of snow on top of everything, and it's 8 degrees out today!

On a related note, I cry uncle. The Minnesota winter wins. Every time it snows I think "Gee, I hope this is the last one", and then it snows again a week later. And on a weekday, just so it doubles my commute time.

I also think weather.com is taunting me. The last day of the 10 day forecast has been purported to be 40 degrees and sunny for several weeks now, but by the time we actually get to that day, it's 20 and snowing.
