Obsession Tuesday

I've been obsessively looking for a decent book light. we don't have end tables in our bedroom and so i don't have a personal lamp to turn on and off, so i really need a little light so that i don't have to get out of bed, freeze my buns off, and turn off the light on the other side of the room.

I need one sooooooooooo bad.

which one do you like?

"Itty Bitty" BooklightEdition- Silver

LED Totable Booklight

Itty Bitty Booklight Volume 2 Paper Back

My work is a Soap Opera (part I)

Have no fear if your favorite soap is being canceled. you can just come to work with me and you'll be set

So lets introduce the characters

SH - Manager of department L
TR - 2ND in command of department L
TR's Minions - her followers
SH-B - SH's Beau

So SH's Beau is kind of a 'bad boy' he had been avoiding the law and his punishment before i left for Iraq. When I came home i found out he was in jail. He kept getting in trouble so he kept getting his sentence lengthened (or whatever you call it)

well when he finally got released SH decided to take 2 days off to go pick him up, and run around town doing what ever it was that he needs to do after being released. SH has worked here since she was 17 and this is her first and only job she's ever had. She gives her heart and soul to her job. This is the first time she's asked for days off in 5 years. She normally cashes in her vacation. and works year round. Often coming in on holidays to solve this problem or that.

Well, TR & her minions didn't like the fact that SH was getting time off. They don't like her because SH's salary screws up their budget profit. Ever since TR has been invited to the budget meetings and other meetings she's become increasingly hostile to SH because of how much she makes. TR even made a scene screaming at SH saying "if i made what you made I'd be here all the time." and "you make XYZ, you should be here early and stay late" that's right ladies, she announced to everyone with in ear shot what SH makes. It was wildly inaccurate amount, but still.

So TR & her minions decided its time to screw SH out of her 2 days off. So you what do you think they did?

They pretended that minion numero uno had SWINE FLU! so that SH would have to cover numero uno's shifts.


well. Big Daddy Boss Man (or Big daddy for short) asked for documentation, and POOF numero uno was all of a sudden fine and dandy.

I work in the front office, but i work for a different section of the parent company. My boss and i have NOTHING to do with department L, other than having their filing in our office.

While SH was on her 2 day vacation numero uno decides to demand to know where her paperwork is from my boss. um... what?

So my boss just looks her square in the eye, and tells her she's not talking to a minion and that she has nothing to do with their paperwork, and walks away.

I tell SH i do not envy her and I'm not sure how she even works with those people.

the only problem is Big daddy thinks the sun shines and sets out of TR's ass, and she's just the cutest thing since baby kittens. ::gags::

Like sands through the hour glass.
These are the days of our lives.

Long Time No Chat

I've been going through a lot of stuff.

I completely hate my job 80% of the time. its no secret.
B got selected but we have no other information.
We're trapped in this 8 x 10 box
We're broke... really broke
I'm frustrated
He's frustrated
my bff and godson are going through a lot which i feel required to help her with.
I'm working out more, but that means less time for blogging or being on the boards chatting with friends
I'm frustrated

god help us.
if we can get through this, we can get through anything.

i miss you all
i miss my blog roll
i miss my followers
i miss friend making Mondays
i miss time out Thursdays
i miss wordless Wednesday
i miss fill in Fridays
i miss the pictures
i miss the laughs
i miss the tears

I'm just so out of time anymore.

but soon. soon I'll be back.

I'm weird

I just thought I'd start this post off with that.
I'm weird. I get that. If you accept it. This post will make A LOT more sense.

So, i do this thing. where i talk to people in my head.

Not only that, but i give people names in my head. I don't know these people, but i do it because... well I'm not really sure i know why. i just do.

when i used to work at the hospital and take the public transportation i used to do it ALL.THE.TIME! (Exhibit A & Exhibit B).

well, now i do this at the gym.

there are people that are nice like the 'early morning swingers couple' (who are all to friendly and to much energy for 5am), there's the Mrs.intense (she says nothing, she never looks around she's focused), then there's Mr.McFlirtyEyes (I've never talked to him, but you can tell). ya. i know I'm weird. we've established this.

so this happened in my head today (no this is not an actual interaction)

me: ::walks to shower::

overly exposed lady (walks around with a towel around her waste and a granny bra): ::looks at my feet:: i don't know how you can shower with out appropriate shower shoes

me: meh

O.E. Lady: its just gross

me: i figure if i can survive showers in Iraq, then I'm pretty safe in the showers at X gym.

O.E. Lady: ::shakes her head::

-end scene-

ya i don't know why i do this. I may very well be crazy. but at least its all happening in my head.
but here's why i post this.

I was talking to my boss today about water. (these are actual events)

her: aren't you proud I'm looking for my water

me: why don't you just fill your bottle at your desk

her: i have a new bottle in my car with 'home' water

me: ::give side eye:: are you a closet water snob
(fyi we have a water fountain in the back of the plant)

her: uh.... i just don't trust that water

me: ::chuckles:: hey, i figured if i could use the water in Iraq to shower and brush my teeth and be fine, than that water is safe too.

her: ::cracks up laughing:: now THAT is funny

me: ::ponders the conversation in my head at the gym::


have a happy Wednesday!
