Who honks at people walking on the sidewalk?

Posted on March 7, 2009. Filed under: General Musings | Tags: , , , , |

I was planing a super indignant post….until I saw the tank top I was wearing while I was walking down said street.

I met up with Jo and Lindsay, and Lindsay had a sack of clothes for me (who needs to buy new???) and so I, of course, had to put on the cutest halter top in the bag….and now that I’m home, I realize that the top is indeed cut down to my zyphoid process—but what the hell? I had a stroller and pants that fit me about as well as a sack of flour (although, I actually tried to wear a sack of flour one time for a futuristic costume party, assuming that the future was Armageddon like–and sack of flour did not cover hips, so bad example)—and all of these assholes are still all like, honking and “hey hot ladies” and such.

I mean,WTF? WHO DOES THAT?

So yes, normally I just ignore such ridiculous, juvenile, hostile and potentially dangerous behavior because I assume, that like dogs and toddlers, these people just want attention.

But I was in a bad mood to begin with and had consumed a couple (seriously! Two!) happy hour margaritas….and was just flipping out…literally. The second time I flipped off a car driving past and screamed “Fuck you!” at them, Johanna was like, “Dude–wow, you’re pissed!” And I had to concur. Assholes.

Anyways, yes.

(So what does it say that I feel like I sort of…deserved the sexual objectification because I was wearing a shirt that accentuated my breasts?)

(I hate America sometimes. I hate that we live in a society that is ok with breasts being bared for sex and movies and marketing BUT NOT FOR FEEDING BABIES.)

I don’t why I keep on being surprised we live in a femine hating, mysoginistic society. I suppose I surround myself with people who actually care about treating other human beings with respect…that it comes as such a shock sometimes.

Cheers to all of the men in my life who don’t treat women like sides of meat. May you inspire others.

I am going to go put my soon to be woman respecting son to bed…and have a beer. Happy Friday!

Well, we’re going to need a new rug

Posted on December 23, 2008. Filed under: Funny, Pets | Tags: , , |

**Update**

Any desire I might have had in the back of my mind for a pet is gone.

I love Tucker to death–but I’m just not a pet person.

This should have been abuntantly clear when I killed a beta from neglect, but no, I have to go off and think I need a cat or something.

Anyways, the temp is hovering around 32 degrees, and apparently, Tucker only poops in the evening with a SUPER long walk around the lake.

This was news to me.

That arrived in the form of a giant poop on my one living room rug.

While gross–it’s really not that big of a deal. The rug was old and since we are *hopefully* buying a couch soon, I want to get a bright area rug to go where the other rug was, so it actually kind of worked out ok.

Not that having an animal crap on your rug is ever a good thing, but still…

If Tucker has pooped on the book chair, I’m not sure what I would have done.

Probably have hid from John—that’s his favorite piece of furniture.

Who knew that Christmas card were so much work?

Posted on November 10, 2008. Filed under: Home, Personal, Relationships, Work | Tags: , , , , , |

Wow. I had no idea putting together Christmas cards was going to be such a hassel.

I also didn’t think that I would enjoy it quite so much. However, I wasn’t expecting my light, fun idea of ‘Oh, I’ll just dash out a bunch of thoughtful, lovely greeting cards and still have time to do my nails’ to turn into a week long extravaganza of writing a newsletter, scrounging around for addresses and debating between the $8.99 box of 50 not recycled cards and $10.99 box of 12 recycled cards.

Anyways, other fall/Holiday happenings. In one week I made and canned pumpkin butter, deep cleaned my house, cooked every night and started this whole Christmas card thing.

I haven’t been so domestic since I was nesting while pregnant with David–and even then, I couldn’t do very much because, yeah. Eight months pregnant is not very conducive to anything but chocolate eating whale imitations. (more…)

My friend was bear maced and I accidentally flashed a client

Posted on September 17, 2008. Filed under: Dialogue, Funny, Work | Tags: , , , , , |

 
Freaking Tuesdays.   

One of my clients called me “earnest” today.  

I can’t decide if that was a compliment or a subtle put down.

I’m going with subtle put down.

There was a miscommunication this afternoon and I thought that my 2pm client had no-showed.

This really upset me off because a) I was there b) I wanted the hours and c) I was in the freaking groove and ready to clean. You know when you’re headed to work and, you know, you’re not entirely looking forward to going into work, but you know once you get started, it really won’t be that bad–you just have to get started. So yes. I was over the hard part of getting ready for work and wanted to keep on making money. (more…)

First coffee in three days

Posted on August 29, 2008. Filed under: Personal, Work | Tags: , , |

So today was a day of high moments.

Hmm.

That looks funny.

What I mean to say is that, in addition to “No, I’m not smoking at work”, today has been filled with a couple of lovely happy “YAYAYAY” moments.

The First One

Posted on August 5, 2008. Filed under: General Musings | Tags: , , |

My entire life I have been afraid of a) authority and b) telling people what I thought.

Through a new age-y massage school, a loving, supportive partner and an *incredible* therapist, I feel as though I’ve come a long ways in, you know, not wanting to throw up at the thought of confrontation.

In fact, I was pulled over the other day and it was the first time I didn’t burst into hysterical and completely uncontrollable tears. I’m sure some women cry as a form of manipulation–but I just can’t help it.

It just happens. God. So embarrassing.

So–that being said–I’ve had a huge, long, dramatic thought process about whether or not stay anonymous on the Full Tilt Boogie. Honestly–I have some professional concerns. As a writer, I was worried about my personal life and opinions negatively affecting my professional life. And, you know, I’d love to have a place to discuss/vent/rant about the people in my life w/o them knowing it. Like, if I make a reference to “Crappy upstairs neighbors”, I don’t want to be worried that said neighbors will find my blog and be like “That BITCH.” (more…)
