where to start…..
Yesterday’s post was yanked after an email was sent to me from a news agency looking to get connected with my husband. I had a minor panic attack. For many reasons. Including some I cannot explain here. So, I took it down. I couldn’t let this get traced to him and get him in trouble – even if I stand by my rant.
That being said, never underestimate the stupidity of an middle school girl. Let’s just say she spent the day bragging about what she did. Then had it backfire. The kids knew exactly where to go and who to blame when they were angry.
I get to spend part of my day possibly working myself out of a job. One could hope that happens anyway. I doubt it will. They like me too much. The executive found, to quote, “the most simpliest software out there”. Any of my IT readers are now laughing their asses off and/or rolling their eyes. And anyone with a high school education is thinking “most simpliest”? Really? He said it 13 times during my one hour meeting with him yesterday. Yes, I kept track. It was either that or smirk or publicly correct him. But if I corrected that, then I would have to correct all of the spelling mistakes on his whiteboard. He drew us a matrix beforehand. Given how carefully he did it, one would hope he would have noticed he spelled many words wrong – like peice or integated or expets. Look, my spelling isn’t the best, but I can look at a word and see it is wrong. And if I prepped for the meeting, I would have double checked it. And when I get to hear how great he is – how smart he is – how he has a pedigree from such a great business school – it just makes it hard for me to take seriously. But with all of the work I’ve been doing, I keep reminding myself – he won’t let me work more than 40hrs a week – so it means, I get a short Friday.
My brothers are not talking to me right now. Why? I’m 2-0 in our fantasy football league. While my brothers are trading like crazy to get a win, I’m not doing much. I want another win this weekend though because it’ll secure my lead – plus it’ll drive them all crazy – my real motivation. I should point out that everyone is 1-1 except for me. Have I mentioned I like football?
I have to thank my husband and kids for bringing home a cold – and giving it to me. Damn germ bags. I hate colds. I can’t take any medicines for it because I have weird reactions to medicines. I hate this time of year.
I saw this the other day and decided I agree…
Happy Hump Day!

Yes it is always nice when the people who think they are smart keep proving they are dumb.
Congrats on the fantasy football lead, I was invited to many different leagues but I decided it would stress me out too much. I would be like your brothers trying to make a trade to win.
And its always nice to have a short friday… I used to have every other friday off based on my schedule but I had to change that unfortunately.
I want a baby dinosaur too!
We’re battling colds here too…just another reason why I hate this time of year! Feel better sweetie!
I am starting to get back in the swing of things myself. I do apologize for being incredibly absent from your blog lately…its not you…its me. I have been absent from everybody’s blog…even my own.
Overall, I am glad you are OK. Colds suck! I am waiting for mine, it will be here before I know it. Every parent gets one every year around school time.
And congrats on your Fantasy Football pics…I wish I could say the same….
I’m the FUCKING cooler. If you’ve seen this awesome indie movie called “The Cooler”, you’d get it. I just have the worst luck when it comes to my first round picks for each league – every damn year, I would lose that pick for the year due to a season-ending injury…usually by 2nd or 3rd game of the season. LOL
I’m willing to overlook a LOT of grammatical quirks, especially since I moved here, but most simpliest? For reals? You have to wonder how some people get/keep their positions when they act like that.
I so feel for you!!! I’ve been battling my ‘cold’ for 3 plus weeks now. And I don’t do well with meds either.
Hope you feel better soon!
