No news on the stalker front. I haven't seen the stalker, nor heard from the police since that one day. Not sure what this all means, but I did listen to my son and bought a small pepper spray for my purse. He suggested that I find a volunteer to practice on. "What did you … Continue reading monkey buznat
Hello everyone. I'm still here. Mostly. I've been working and working and sleeping little. We came back in early summer to regular schedules in the office, but we are now on staggered schedules (again). This means, part of the week, I'm working from home.I'm still dealing with contractors who haven't finished their work. And, that … Continue reading Just because its 2020
This week, I sat in on a virtual meeting of a national organization. It was my first "business" meeting. And, most likely my last. Let me preface this by saying that everyone should be glad that I didn't have a live mic and a web cam. Now, let me tell you why. The outgoing president … Continue reading say what to the who?
In my NEW, NON-ACADEMIC department, there are several people doing several different jobs. We are also in different locations. On day 1 of this new job, I was dropped off at the office and told to enjoy my day. (No, I wasn't given any direction or guidance, which I'm told was intentional-- a) because the … Continue reading honey roasted angry bandicoot
Work has been cra-zy. There's a lot going on, not a lot of communication (w/ me) and the stress of deadlines. So, this weekend, we picked apples, are crockpotting dinner, and a ham/swiss/onion/mushroom quiche baking in the oven. My ankle is still on fire-- not sure what's wrong with it-- doctors don't know-- PT hasn't … Continue reading Chaos, quiche and a badger
This is a venting post. So, you can either tag along or come back for the next post. I have had a supremely chaotic week at work. Now, I'm trying (most of my work day and now into my private time) to upload a video to my work FB. Today the power glitched twice and … Continue reading hostility and chocolate pudding
roses are orange my eyes are red... Yesterday morning I wake up with a start. Me: "OMG! WHAT DAY IT IS? AM I LATE FOR WORK?" Did I mention it was 3am? This morning I woke up with a start. Me alone in bed: "Wait, what day is it?" I had to think about it … Continue reading green feet and snaky sticks
Excusing my laziness Today is a "just for the hell of it" post. I know the last one was a bit heavy. I needed to vent and just release the stress. Thank you for understanding. I have decided to do nothing for the rest of the day. I think I need to do nothing. Absolutely … Continue reading purple dog fried banana
For a while now, I've had this weird ankle pain. Like a rubber band snapping the inside of my ankle. Last summer, I couldn't wear heels to an event. Over the winter it was achy (the damn stairs are killing me). Since January, it's been excruciating. I've put off seeing a doctor at first because … Continue reading pain and agony of da feet
NEIGHBORHOOD GOSSIP During the weekly neighborhood "drinking at a safe distance" event, we were discussing a few things. Face-coverings and masks make our faces breakout. (I'm sporting a rash on my face from wearing my mask for hours this week.)Our neighbor, the asshat, was the subject of a multiple day police presence. And, apparently the … Continue reading Quarantine Week 8
Warning: I'm in a funk this week. I don't want to trigger anyone, so if you are prone to fake sympathy, or bubbling up with unsolicited advice, please pass. It's week 7 and I'm in need of a good cry and an hour-long venting session. It's Never Going To End... It IsA Life Sentence For … Continue reading Detainment Time & The Breaking Point
Just a little vent-ing When I was a kid, I used to think that 1980 was so far away (it wasn't) and that 30 was old (it isn't). So, what else is knew? I've been home (for 6 weeks), working from home (for 6 weeks), moving my laptop from room to room so I feel … Continue reading Detainment Date: Uh, it has DAY in it
I've lost track. The only reason why I know it's Sunday is because I looked it up. The days have been a giant blur of fear-mongering, paranoia, rubber gloves, facial masks and any type of cleaning product. MY ADVENTURES IN APOCALYPTIC FOOD SHOPPING Where's the beef? In the beginning of the Great Pandemic, shortages in … Continue reading Quarantine Log: Day # Does It Even Matter Anymore?
I've tired of this pandemic bullshit. For a month all I've seen are the memes, the TikTok humorous family dance party and song remix videos, dancing nurses, fire sirens blaring outside of a hospital in honor of medical staff, Easter bunnies on fire trucks or in convertibles, kids celebrating their birthdays by waving to a … Continue reading Quarantine Day #… who cares anymore?
It's been way too long since I sat in my uncomfortable desk chair, deflecting randos who bang on the door demanding tours, and watching the crazy neighbor in the next office stalking me from his car. I almost miss the insanity. (Almost.) I have been doing my due diligence, as I promised my boss. I … Continue reading Self-Quarantine Day #400001
