I hate today.
I hate Valentines. I hate the intense pressure to LOVE today. I hate feeling like something's wrong with me if no one sends me a card or gives me chocolate or whatever.
Which is SO stupid.
I hate today.
Stupid Hallmark Holiday.
OH timberho I didn't leave abruptly - well, not at my choice. As I was saying goodbye - my cable crashed!! Just so you know I didn't abandon you!!
Work was weird today - I swear every nutjob in the town came in. Plus, it was my first day working with Cathy, who was not her usual fun self. Understandably so, as she does have a WEE bit of stress in her life. But she's not great at dealing with it, and tends to take it out on everyone around her. Which was me today. She just wants to get the chemo going so that it's DONE and she can get her life back. Which, yes I understand. But I miss old Cathy. Sigh. More and more lately, I just want to find a new job. It's to the point that I like one of the people I work with. Fortunately she's a doll, but the rest of the time, it gets old and annoying. I'm tired of being shoved out and shut out just because one person thinks of me as a threat. You know what? We both have our strengths, and they're very different. We make a good team, if you'd get your head out of your ass long enough to see that. And she's using the other pharmacist to pick on me about stupid things. And again, pissing me off. For what they pay me - it's so not worth it. Plus, the only shifts I get decent wages on are also every Saturday. And I need to stop whining.
I need a vacation.
Send her all the positive thoughts and prayers you can, please. Her name is Cathy and she's a very cool lady.
Love this game, Love this team.
Hope you all had a wonderful and safe evening!!!
We spent our first New Year's Eve alone in 20 years! Inna had to work, bartending her first New Year's Eve (which should be full of interesting stories) and Lou went to her first New Year's party. (only 3 of them, but still, a big step.) My contribution to Lou's party was two bottles of sparkling apple juice, fancy plastic champagne flutes to drink that out of, and a bag of assorted hats, noisemakers and various New Year's swag. I'm sure I'll hear about that too.
So, facing an empty house, the hubby realized that while we had appys to nibble on through the night, we had no sweets and not so much in the way of alcohol. Off we buzzed to the store and grabbed a wee chocolate cake, a wee orange creamsicle cake (which is WOW) and a couple mini pies. Then over to the liquor store, where we bought a couple more bottles of wine. We got home and settled in to watch movies all night. (Woo hoo, the excitement! Lol) Hubby likes the chick flicks, but I prefer action, so I won and we watched the Bourne Identity (which we'd seen eons ago) and the Bourne Supremacy (which we've never seen). Awesome films, although the second had its choppily directed moments that annoyed me. We then followed with his choice, Elizabethtown. Which was sweet, but as he put it, not quite as gripping. Lol. We paused at midnight to watch the local countdown (okay, from Seattle, but it was the closest) and then carried on until oneish, when we stumbled off to bed. The wines we tasted were a zinfandel, a sangria and a blackberry. The blackberry was lovely, I'll buy it again. The other two were also good, but a tiny bit remains of them, so I guess blackberry won. Lol.
All in all a nice evening.
Hope you all had a nice night, and may your new year be filled with love and laughter.
that you and I had together, it doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot,
anything you remember. Next, re-post this and see how many people leave a memory
about you. I'll respond with mine of you. It's actually pretty cool (and fun) to
see the responses. Anything goes!
Today is my last day off before Xmas Eve day, so I have to get my ass in gear to buy groceries enough to get us through. At least I don't have to make dinner, this year my sister is kindly hosting us all. It's a very small group, since a lot of us either live elsewhere or are travelling elsewhere, but still - free turkey!!! And all presents have been bought and cards have been mailed, so yay me! Lol.
I just wanted to say hi to all, and pass out some cyber Valium, and hope y'all are holding it together!
Hopefully I can post more when I'm actually caught up and have a free moment. I'll pencil it in for mid January....lol!
Happy Holidays Everyone!!!
On the plus side, I've gotten all my cards done and showered and have laundry going and it's barely 10 am. Yay! Go me!!
Again, if you've moved in the past year - please send me your new address. I think I caught up with everyone, but if you don't recall sending me that kind of info, well - you need to!! Now I'm going to sort through all the goodies I've accumulated over the year, see what goes where, and see if I need any more things. Tonight we have an extra 10% off at work, so that' s awesome.
I guess I have to go in eventually - especially since I go back to work tomorrow. Lol. I'm dreading it so much, and looking forward to it as well. I wish I could win the lotto so I didn't need to work ever again. AND could go live in Florida part of the year.
I also wish I didn't want so many things I can't have...lol.
Anyhow, just came on to bitch, I guess. Oh, and to show off my new icon. It's my niece's little girl, isn't she a doll?
Give me a few friends who will love me for what I am,
and keep ever burning before my vagrant steps the kindly light of hope...
And though I come not within sight of the castle of my dreams,
teach me to be thankful for life,
and for time's olden memories that are good and sweet.
And may the evening's twilight find me gentle still.
So if you've moved in the past couple of years, definitely since last year, please send me your new address. Or if you and I have only gotten to know each other in the past year, please do so. I'd appreciate it. Or heck, if you just like cards with exotic stamps from a foreign country....(hey! We count!!)
I've screened comments so you can reply and no one will know but me!! bwahahaha...
I'm here to shamelessly promote Darren Haye's myspace site. Mostly cuz he wants me to. Lol.
If you don't know who Darren is, he's formerly of Savage Garden, you know - the truly, madly, deeply dude. He's the voice, the face, the talent - at least in my opinion. His blogs feature a tendency to record videos when he's very tired, which generally result in absolute hysterics. More than once listening to him ramble and giggle has brightened a day for me. He's truly a lovely human being, and his voice is pure and beautiful. If that isn't enough to swing you his way, he's the dude I'm always quoting - you know, the one who writes about sex like NO ONE on earth. Truly. Give him a listen, I promise you will never be disappointed.
He also has a lovely website just chock full of the perfect Christmas gifts for any of his fans. (hint, hint - *coughDVDScough*)
Take a minute, check him out, spread the word. Trust me. ;o)
People magazine recently released their list of this year's Sexiest Men Alive. In turn, the Calgary Sun created their own list of the Sexiest Canadian Men Alive.
The man any woman would want to be more than Just Friends with, Ryan Reynolds, topped the list for all 6'3" of his hunkiness. "There is nothing sexier than a guy with a six-pack who can make you laugh," journalist Tara Merrin wrote.
Runner-up was Breaker High geek turned The Notebook hottie Ryan Gosling whose latest role in Half Nelson is already garnering Oscar buzz. A close third is another Oscar-buzzing star, Adam Beach, who stars in the war epic Flags of Our Fathers and made the list because of his "excellent physique and sexy smile."
In fourth was Halle Berry's beautiful beau, Gabriel Aubry, who is one of Canada's hottest models. Rounding out the top five is 24 star Kiefer Sutherland who's been on our radar for about two decades.
Ahhh...our two Ryans. Yum.
This year I've been busy!
Last Monday I ruled Iran as a kind and benevolent dictator (700 points). In June I gave kicksav29 a life-saving blood transfusion (50 points). In February I signed my organ donor card (28 points). Last Tuesday I turned satsuma77 in for eating carbs (3 points). Last month I didn't flush (-1 points).
Overall, I've been nice (780 points). For Christmas I deserve an Easy-Bake Oven!
