I am so over a couple of my co-workers today.

I wonder how often that is said about me?

Never, TRBL. Never.

Meanwhile, I have begun to dread working with one of the sales people in charge of giving me PR & etc. She doesn't tell me what she wants, yet becomes sarcastic and insulting when she doesn't get it. I've never had my writing skills demeaned like this. I think my self-esteem is being affected. I know there are worse bosses (I've had them), but I'm still finding this a challenge, in the modern sense of the word (i.e, nightmare).

I don't understand how some people can be so sly and manipulative. When did it become the 'thing' to step on other people just so you can look good? It worries me how deceitful and snake-like people are becoming.

When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??

My co worker just had to bring up June Apples, aka, Sheepnose Crab, and/or Blush June Red. I have not had one or seen a June Apple tree in years.

A guy my co worker grew up with came by to visit. Bless his heart, he is filthy. He is in his early 50's, and has a mental disability. He is very child like, can drive but has a hard time with other tasks (some much simpler), a bit of paranoia and some anxiety issues, and has a very limited short term memory. His parents always took care of him, and they both passed away recently. I know several people try to check on him and make sure he has food, is eating and is okay but I honestly don't know when this man last had a bath or washed his clothes.

I swear, the part time residents here need to chill out. At some point you have to realize that you are in the woods. Not in a high rise condo. In the woods. You do not need to sneak around taking pictures of a backpack and axe sitting next to a gate because you here someone digging in the woods. News flash, an axe is a rather common tool in the woods. People also carry around packs when they are taking trips into the woods. As far as the digging goes, burying a body is the most irrational and over reactive thought you could have. Yet it's your first. No car in sight. She did not see the person. Just an axe, backpack, hears digging and has decided it's a crime scene BUT I am somehow idiotic when I try to ease her mind by telling her people dig for specific roots this time of year. Okay then. You're right. It's a murder. Someone drug a body, axe and backpack for miles before deciding to bury the body by your house. How dare I think otherwise. Jesus H Christ. Thanks for calling because they may or may not have the property owners permission but if you are that scared, go back to where you came from.

Milk is Murder might be one of the most ignorant slogans ever created. I know that one is typically used by your more extreme vegans, and I completely understand that it is about the rather horrible practices that take place in some large industry dairy farms. I know all about it. They have to have a need to produce milk. Their babies are taken from the quickly and fed a milk substitute loaded full of hormones & antibiotics, and that's the least worrisome of the ingredients. They are unknowing cannibals... It's disgusting. Meanwhile the bulls are killed and the babies will meet the same fate soon. The dairy cow will remain a milk machine in closed quarters. It is rough and it is wrong, but milk still does not = murder. There is nothing inherently wrong with dairy. There is a population problem and an excessive demand for it. More importantly there is something horribly wrong with a government that favors the large industry dairy farms, has helped them crush the competition (along with excessive supply & demand), and outlawed fresh milk or products made from fresh raw milk (which has enormous health benefits and no greater risk than your pre package lettuce) to be sold from small, kind, and gentle farms in numerous states.

Now, quit yelling at people for eating cheese and drinking milk and talk to them about better options.

This rambling (not even a rant) brought to you by a girl on tv, with a deer in headlights expression her face, that was refusing to put cheese on peoples orders at a vegetarian/vegan restaurant, because it went against her morals. Milk is murder! Please shhhhh, relax the control issues, stop pushing your morals on others and give the people their cheese. I bet they would not refuse to tell the cook you want the tofu on the menu because they find it slimy and disgusting and disgusting is against their morals. I wouldn't, but I love tofu (and cheese).

I love all the commercials for different institutes & OL schools that focus on going against the grain. We give you careers you love, not just a job! Like jobs you love are somehow immune to daily grind syndrome. You'll never have a bad day, go through the motions or have schedule when you love your job.

What a wonderful fable.

*I am holding these commercials partially responsible for the number of applicants who have asked for 9 am- 4pm shifts in my office. (Delusion has something to do with it as well). Never mind the fact that they have been told the job requires 12 hour swing shifts, numerous times, by several different people and accepted the part or full time position. They still feel the need to stress that is could be a job they love IF the rules were changed or bent for them. Once it sinks in that they will not he receiving differential treatment, they never come back.

Love the people asking if she wore her religious Habit for attention (she said with sarcasm).

*sigh*

the dishwasher broke....

well, the mechanism that holds the bottom spray arm did, at least. i hate waking up to dirty dishes when i ran the machine.

i found a Canadian parts replacement place that has it in stock and will have it to me by Tuesday for only $36 including shipping. Sears Parts website won't ship to Canada (the part cost $5 less there) and the Canadian version of the site won't sell the part - they want to send a repairman!



the dishwasher is almost 6 years old and out of warranty, i can't imagine what a home visit would cost!

Are you effing kidding me? I just dropped Fin's clippers AGAIN. This time the blade bit didn't break but the base did. Many many bad words flew from my mouth. I had half of his back shaved. So I had to hold the blade bit in the base by hand while finishing him. He doesn't look too bad (but he doesn't look good)....but dammit. So then I crawled around my kitchen floor trying to locate the tiny bit of plastic that I think I could superglue and make things work. ... no luck.
I vacuumed up the hair, emptied the dust cup thing and there, sitting on top of the trash, was the tiny bit of plastic!!!!!

I may not have to buy new clippers after all (although at this point I'm thinking they might be cursed) I haven't tried to superglue it yet, obviously my hands aren't working very well at the moment. I'll give it a few days.

F off! I get so sick of reading the same old studies from 1982
that make the founding basis for some of the protocol on my job. If 418 people were asked in 1982, you might need to ask about 4 million now. People are not as rational as they used to be. All the hysterical 911 calls from McDonalds drive thru about pickles on a burger should be proof of this.

Perri, it sounds as if you have a prolonged case of the butter fingers. Hate it when that happen! Hopefully you can glue the clippers back.

I would like to run out to the store and grab a thing or two for breakfast but I am killing time until a night shift co worker leaves. She often walks out the door and spends 40 minutes sitting on a bench, talking on the phone, while letting her car run. If I go out, she may try to overload me with gossip as well. I really don't care, especially before 7am.


In other non important news gracing the tv screen... Sentiment about the April Vogue cover seems to be a bit on the negative side. Just a touch.

Eeeh. The mudslide near Seattle is horrible. That happened in County in my area a few years ago. There was a microburst centered over a mountain, several fallen trees has built up, and it when released... The top of the mountain went, large trees/water and mud rushed down the mountain and several homes near the bottom were destroyed. One woman lost her mother, her toddler, her newborn, and both her legs. It was horrific. Several died, and many were trapped for some time. They had to use heavy equipment to doze (as in bull, you crazy phone) a new road in so they could get to the victims.

^ As with most disasters, it does show you the good in people. I was working that night, we found out, numerous people from our rescue squads/FD's/construction workers and DOT employees loaded up and got there as quickly as they could. Numerous light bars were set up and people worked all night in a heavy down pour on unstable ground. I just hope the dam created by the slide does not break while they are still doing search and rescue. They are worried the river will release soon

Come on clock!! I am ready to run from this building, screaming. It's not been a bad day. Slow and steady, and mainly law enforcement calls. Yesterday was a medical and fire day. We had 3 out of control brush fires and a house fire. I took 36 calls on it in a matter of minutes. My co worker took at least 15 more. Times like that make me wish we had a system several larger cities have. You make a recording and it says, 'If you are calling about the house fire on ... road, thank you for your call, but it has been reported". Sadly almost every person that called in, and then some, came back in droves and stood around blocking access and parking for fire trucks. We had to send officers to make them leave. Anywho, I've had a day of continuing ed and reading. My eyes hurt and I am restless.

Hmmm. Considering that this was standing straight up and filled to the brim with seed yesterday evening... I think it is safe to say something got into my bird feeder.

I laughed my butt off before i left work. One of the woman who retired from my job around the same time I was hired left a ton of books in our junk drawer. I thought someone had disposed of them years ago. Nope! I just discovered them lining a shelf in our outer office (it's hardly used for anything other than a placw to sit during staff meetings, our lockers, and a place for my boss to store some items for classes he teaches). All are cheesy romance novels with titles like...

Your Ranch or Mine?
Lip Service
Sweet, Dirty, Talk

Nothing sets the tone for a professional work environment like that.
