Never fear my readers I will have blog a plenty tomorrow. Heading to the State Fair today to collect more material!
Hello fellow followers!
Busy time right now with a family reunion and I plan to write more in the next couple of days. Please try to contain your excitement 😉
Today is my Friday, after today I’m off of work for 5 glorious workless days and I cannot wait.
This morning I was sitting at my desk and working on an email to my boss. Now I sit at a cubicle and there are 2 others at cubicles in here too and then offices in the back. I don’t have a check in window and I’m not an administrative assistant that you need to check with. Any who, it really truly annoys the shit out of me when people can see I’m working come up to my desk and stand there staring me. Then they tell me they’re here to see so and so. Great! Wonderful! I’m so excited to hear that, please have a seat and can I offer your some coffee or a muffin? There’s a chair, sit you ass in it and whomever you have a meeting with will come out and get you. Now thank you for making me lose train of thought in work I was doing that I will now probably fuck up because you felt the need to tell me you have a meeting with someone.
And what is with people and small talk. There are times I have to bring someone somewhere in our building and there are always two topics that get discussed:
- How BEAUTIFUL the building is and when was it built
For starters, there are no windows in my part of the building so I could give a shit less what it’s like outside and yes it’s a freaking beautiful building and no I don’t know nor care when it was built. I know people don’t know that I get to discuss these two wonderful topics daily but you would think they would have some sort of inkling. I prefer uncomfortable silence. I don’t feel the need to know you so therefore I don’t want to talk to you. Can you just let us sit in silence for this 2 minute walk?
Today I went on my usual lunch time walk and decided to stay indoors today as being covered in sweat isn’t something comfortable at the end of the day. Anyways, I’m walking around the little path that everyone who walks inside does and I swear no one likes to move. I’m one person, just me, not walking with anyone else and people who are walking with 3-5 people just take up the entire damn hallway and damn near run me into a wall. Move the fuck over or I’m dropping a shoulder and then it’s on. It’s not just at work either, it’s on sidewalks outside. My husband and I run into that all the time where we are the mannered ones and will move into single file while the people coming from the other direction who refuse to let go of each other’s hands because you might get fucking lost get to stay side by side. Now my husband will just complain and move on. Me on the other hand, I make him switch sides with me and I play a little game of chicken with them. I’ll ram right into someone I don’t give a shit. It’s not my fault that you weren’t raised with manners and now the words “excuse me”. Granted if they come back at me fighting and swinging, I’m going down. I talk the talk but I’m a complete pussy if it comes to throwing punches. Yes I’m that person. It’s more of the fact that people just don’t have manners more than anything that bothers me. I was raised on “please, thank you and you’re welcome”. Apparently that is a language that has become as difficult to understand as Klingon (which I do not speak but it sounds really weird and I don’t get it so thought it was a decent comparison).
One more rant and on to the fashion portion I swear.
What is with people using the handicap door if they’re not handicap? I realize with some it’s germ thing but guess what, that door is being used more than the other doors so you’re already getting the germs on you. Others I think are just lazy. One time someone next to me walking pushed the handicap button to open the door and I opened the manual door right next to them. They looked at me and asked why I did that. UM BECAUSE I’M NOT FUCKING HANDICAPPED! Is what I wanted to say, I simply shrugged my shoulders and gave the “I don’t know” look.
Ok onto what I wore today. I was super excited about my outfit today because I decided to go into my goal bag (a bag of clothing from last year that don’t fit this year) and tried on a pair of GAP capris that I’ve been dying to wear. They still had tags on them for Pete’s sake. AND THEY FIT! I would have done a happy dance but I was running late as it was because I was too busy staring at myself in the mirror in awe.
Now let’s discuss the shirt. Let me start by saying I never pay full price for clothing and accessories. I will always have a coupon. The shirt is from Express and is a $50 shirt. I had a coupon for $15 off (not one of my finer moments but still was cheaper than $50). I get up to the register, the shirt is on clearance for $17, uh SCORE! She looks up my account, I have a $15 reward to use. Total cost of the shirt with tax, $3!
The shirt on the Polyvore is slightly darker as the one I’m wearing is a lighter greyish tone. Other than that, everything else is pretty much similar.
Warning to readers, I plan on going into a multi topic rant so be prepared to switch gears at a moment’s notice. Thank you.
So I’m standing in line for breakfast and for starters, why the hell do people feel the need to be all up in my personal space behind me in line? I feel like I should lay out a welcome mat and say “welcome to my personal space, may I offer you a beverage?” Seriously. Then I have to wait in yet another line to just get a damn fork, A FORK, and this happens to be by the great smelling carbs (by the way all I did was catch whiff and I felt my ass grow an inch) and there is a woman in front of me getting fruit salad. Now I’ll all about getting your fruit salad on but this piece of work was digging through the fruit to pick out all the pineapple and grapes. Really bitch? If that’s all you want, take your happy ass to the grocery store and pick up your own sliced pineapple and grapes and bring your own shit! Now there’s no left for anyone else because you are a selfish broad.
That was breakfast.
Then I’m back at my desk, starting to work (yay) and an employee walks in and is looking for a vision claims form which we have displayed, OK fine, and no worries there. He finds what he’s looking for then proceeds to come over to me and ask for the vision claims company’s fax number. Um dude, you have the form in your hand, and you see what I see so what do you think? But to be nice I looked up the information on the internet (which by the way is the SAME information he was holding) and he decided to come around my desk and stand behind me. Now I work in Human Resources and have confidential information on my screen pretty much all the time. That super annoys me. Really? You feel the need to crowd me in my personal space (once again this morning, sensing a theme here?)?
Mornings like these, I wish I had an ass full of farts. No one would be in my personal space then. I might even be in my personal space…..
I work in a professional office type of job and it just AMAZES me that some people find it necessary to CC their boss or my boss or whomever’s boss on emails when they decide that you have done something wrong and would like to ream you out about it. I mean come one people, can’t you just discuss the issue first with just the person and if it becomes more than you can handle or a bigger issue THEN rope in the boss man? That’s what I do. It’s like running to your mommy or daddy that the other kid spilled milk on the table. Clean up the fucking mess for pete’s sake and move on. The world didn’t stop turning did it? Did the ground open up and swallow you whole? Will you now not get into Heaven or whichever afterlife you believe in (FYI, I will not discuss religions or beliefs of that nature as everyone is entitled to their own opinion as you see I have plenty myself)? NO, so stop running to mom and dad and fix the damn problem yourself. There are far worse things that can happen.
Now on to fashion now that I got that stuff off my chest.
Today I still went casual but amped it up slightly. I get bored easily with work clothes because I’m stuck behind a desk all day so no one sees nor cares what I wear. The cardigan shown is Banana Republic but I got mine at H&M. The earrings are similar to what I wore but mine came from my favorite store in Downtown Racine, WI called Dimples.
Here is the Polyvore version.
So after having a nice 3 day weekend it was back to reality today. It was quite an easy day which worries me what the rest of the week will bring. Although I only have a 3 day week as I’m off again on FridayJ
I currently have a desk job in a cubicle, in the lowest level of the building which has no windows so from time to time I forget that there is an outside and nature.
I can’t believe I actually have nothing to complain or bitch about today. Typically someone or something pisses me off during the day as I deal with people all day long but today was kind of quiet. Maybe it’s the calm before the storm? Because of this I have nothing witty to say and by witty I mean a nice sarcastic rant that will be a HUGE run-on sentence because I will totally forget any grammar or punctuation I learned as a child, teenager and in college. In fact in that sentence I misspelled 3 words already but you’ll never know which ones thanks to spellcheckJ
Since I have nothing daily wise to bitch about, I’ll just bitch about “eating healthy”. I don’t like to say “dieting” because hell everyone every day is on a diet. But this whole eating healthy thing and working out to stay fit is starting to get on my last nerve. Over the past 2 years I have put on 20lbs (and a HUGE thank you to my doctor for making sure she told me that as if I didn’t already know, “oh really doc? I put on weight, I haven’t noticed how I had to change my entire wardrobe, thanks!”) I believe most of this is due to medication I was on a while back that just took my metabolism down to the pace of a massive turtle that is over 300years old and weighs a ton. I eat very healthy but I don’t do that gluten free, taste free, organic shit. I can’t afford that. I just watch my portions, track my calorie intake on a website I use and do A LOT of walking. Yet my weight refuses to budge, and I swear, if one person comments that I need to mix my cardio with strength training, eat this or that or do this or that, I’m going to go off on a tangent that won’t even make sense to me. I’ve tried it all, and I mean it ALL. Then you have my friends who take a shit and POOF 10lbs gone and then the next week another shit and POOF another 10lbs gone. I mean WTF! (Yep I used the abbreviation and I am ashamed as is my English professor from college). I just don’t exactly know what I need to do anymore to just lose 10lbs so I can fit some clothing from last summer. I’m getting fed up with buying new clothes all the freaking time and I’m tired of busing my ass working out, eating right and reaping no benefits but the “health” aspects. Yes I know what I’m doing is healthy but I wouldn’t mind seeing that scale go down or my pants get a little looser.
Onto my fashion post for the day. I felt a bit like a sloth today and not the cute version. So I opted for a loose top and pants. Went a little minimal on jewelry as well. Sometimes there are just days you don’t feel like dressing up. One picture is the outfit I put together on Polyvore and the other is what I looks like on me. Now you might be asking yourself, “This bitch likes fashion?” Yes I do like it. Can’t afford it all but I do like it and when I do feel like dressing up I do a fantastic job, so much so that my friends and family often ask me to do shopping for them. Just because someone LOVES fashion, doesn’t necessarily mean they can always dress like it. Especially when you’re dealing with a weight issue.
This is the Polyvore version:
Ok so this is my first attempt at blogging EVER. I’m not even sure I’m doing this correctly which makes this even better. I suppose I should start by explaining why I’m blogging and what my blog will be focused on.
This blog will be about daily crap that everyone deals with (most of us anyways) and never say it. Well I’m going to say it. It’ll be rude and crude and I’m sure I’ll get a lot of haters but I already deal with that now so bring it on I say.
I’m opinionated but in a funny way not a bitchy way. I just feel I need people to read this and say to themselves, “yes, I felt that exact way one time!”
After I do my daily discussion on what pissed me off that day or some sort of revelation I came across I will shift my focus to fashion.
I LOVE fashion! However, I feel fashion has only two sides, the size 0 women with no hips and the coveted thigh gap all females drool over and the plus size women. Neither of these sides I have anything against as I myself drool over the size 0 women who seem to be able to wear anything and everything, and the plus sized women who seem to have such confidence it’s insane! I love them both. I’m just stuck in the middle. So I will try to post my fashion ideas I have dreamed up that day and put together an outfit I will then take a picture of on my own body so it can be shown that women are beautiful in each shape and size.
Yes I realize there are a BILLION blogs out there that are focused on the same thing and why should anyone read mine? Why should you? If you got this far you must be somewhat interested right? Trust me, I’m sure my grammar will suck and I’m also sure I’ll piss off a few if not many people and some of those people might be my close friends and family members but if you already know me, then you should know I have a big mouth.
So If you like what you’ve read so far, add me to your feed and watch for my next installment where I discuss who I am and why I’ve decided to blog. It’ll either put you to sleep from boredom or you might actually enjoy my wit and decide to keep following me:)
I’m just sayin.
