I just want to go hide under the bed [Jun. 11th, 2008|02:38 pm]
terribleturnip
So, last night I managed to top the foot-in-mouth incident by trying to duck by two of our new interns on the way to the elevator and running smack, emphasis on "smack", into a column. Thank goodness my briefcase was slightly ahead of me and I was able to turn my head in time to not break my nose. Hurt cheekbone, dignity in shreds.

Percy had diarrhea in the bedroom. The less said about that, the better.

We got HAIL on the faire site. Can rain of frogs be far behind?

I am assupagainstdeadlines at work and obviously coming in on the weekend isn't really an option for me this weekend. And staying late/coming in early won't help as most of it all hinges on me finding the right people to sign/move the projects along. I won't even go into how I keep getting different versions of how to do the next step from each person I ask and no matter which one I choose, it's been the wrong one because the procedure has CHANGED since last week...

Oh, yeah, and last night they upgraded our software so now I'm, under tight deadline, trying to do spreadsheets, etc., with new toolbars, etc. I'm sure in the end I will find it easier, but change was one thing I can NOT deal with. I almost burst out into tears because I couldn't find "Save As". It's just one freaking delay after another.

I drove home to walk dogs for lunch to avoid another Big D incident (couldn't afford the time away from work, but couldn't stomach the alternative) and on the way back stopped at a gas station to grab a soda. Came out and some truck was parked behind me, completely blocking me in. Ten minutes later, he came strolling out of the men's room and gave me bloody attitude for being impatient. Only knowing that it would take even more time away from work to wash off the blood kept me from doing what needed to be done when he told me to "Chill, lady."

Then to make it worse, I got forced off the freaking highway onto the shoulder by someone to busy talking on their cell phone to notice that there was already a person in the lane they wanted to get into.

And why am I here, venting, if I'm so freaking behind at work? We are experiencing intermittent outages of, yes, the very database crucial to my project.....

This week I am missing making meatloaf and worrying that I burnt the pine nuts again.

Rain of frogs? You forget -- I'm coming this weekend. Which mean there WILL be frogs, probably five minutes into my show. Most likely at the Rose stage.

Poor Percy :(

Rain of Frogs? Well at least it isn't a Plague of Locusts.

See you Saturday -- unless you're still hiding from us that is :D

I believe they're already booked in at NCRF.

Um, I'm so bringing you a case of K this weekend. All.For.You! Wow...

I gagged cleaning up projectile cat vomit this morning just so I wouldn't gag even more when Basil would try to eat it. I can't even imagine a bedroom full of Greyhound liquid poo..............

At least the tripe is cleaned out of his system. The dogsitter fed them this special dogfood made from tripe, trying to entice Willow who went on a hunger strike. "They loved it" she said "although it smells pretty bad when you open the can."

Not half as bad as when it comes out their butts again.

Do not EVER be tempted to feed this to Basil unless you have a stomach of iron.

Willow would just have to starve. There is no way....

Oh my GAWD....not the green tripe! I swear you can smell that stuff stinking while it's still sealed in the can. There are worse things than a dog not eating for 48 hours. Green tripe is one of them.

If it's still in the can, how do you know it's green?

Green refers to the fact that it hasn't been bleached or processed -- from cattle/ruminants so maybe it could be greenish from its content.

But I am so not opening a can to check.

It was bad enough that Percy's poos were...chitlin-textured.

If I had a gag reflex, I'd be doing it now, just remembering.

No gag reflex

You know, if you hadn't just preceded that last sentence with the words "poos" and "chitlin textured," I'd be in my bunk right now.

And here I was selfishly wondering why you hadn't chosen a position for yourself at my "Fantasy Island" thingy. Cuz I had some of my own ideas for you, sweetheart...and none of them included meatloaf or pine nuts. But we can throw that in if you want.

:-) Deep cleansing breaths. Heave those beateous breasts up and down a bit. See if that doesn't make you feel better.

No? Well... *I'm* feeling better.....

I'm so crabby and stressed out right now, sweetheart, that the resort doesn't even sound appealing. (Being surrounded by people dressed in costume, fulfilling their theatrical fantasies...well, if THAT doesn't sound familiar to me and not in a good way!)

Clean sheets with one person to tend to me, no poo and vomit, with no phone, cell phone, internet access or alarm clock, no leaking roof, no overgrown garden & lawn, overflowing laundry baskets...that sounds like heaven to me right now. Skip the props.

Wow. What a crab ball. Nothing a weekend withOUT faire, more than 5 hours of sleep and some alcohol won't cure -- but that's still more than a week away...

I'm actually relatively sure I could make that dream come true, sweetheart. Just say the word.....

::big hug:: You know, I like to nurture my friends. I could come over sometime soon with a case of cider in hand and do your laundry (I'll wash, dry and fold, but you need to put it away) and you have to do is relax, drink cider, and keep me company. Just a thought....

Big love comin atcha.
Remember that adage 'hey,If the world didn't suck...we'd all fly off' some f#*ing guy crafted and probably said at the wrong time...when someone was highly agitated....
I'm hoping its enough after the fact, to not make matters worse :o.
Hang in there.xoxo
