An amusing email exchange between me & Donkey Boy today

Me: I'm a little bummed. I had this plan to ask Mr. X out for a drink after work and now he's not here today. CRAP!

Donkey Boy: Sorry Mr. X isn't there today. There's always next Friday!!

Me: Yes, there is always next Friday for asking Mr. X out. But I want to get to him before he forgets how sexy, charming and vivacious I was on my birthday. Maybe I'll wear that shirt to work next Friday (with a camisole this time, don't need to show the breastage to ALL my co-workers) to jog his memory.

DB: Why don't you just eliminate all pretense and just show up to work next Friday in a negligee?

Me: I can't wear a negligee to work next Friday. I'd be too cold! I'll have to put on a trenchcoat over it or something. But wouldn't a negligee be too subtle? Maybe I could just show up naked, spread-eagle myself on the conference room table and purr, "Take me, Mr. X."

DB: Actually, the spread-eagle approach might be the best way to find out what's what with this Mr. X guy, ya know? No gray areas.

Me: That's true. Subtlety is lost on most men. Of course, my psyche would never recover if he looked at me on the conference table, scrunched up his nose and said, "Uh...no, thanks"

Not that I'm actually considering this...      


DB: The "Um, no thanks" would make it awkward at work, assuming he doesn't actually bring you up on sexual-harassment charges. Call ... the ... police.

Me: It probably wouldn't be good corporate policy for the HR Manager to do this. I could cover by saying it was a demonstration on what not to do to coworkers. Sort of sexual harassment aversion training.

DB: Good idea. Be sure to fire off an email to me stating that you are about to perform training on how not to behave. That way, I can be a witness for your defense in court.

This is totally and completely wrong.
Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez calls George W. Bush "the devil".

So wrong.

Everyone knows Dick Cheney is the Devil.

An oldie but a baddie
A joke found on an HR bulletin board:

The dinner plate for the evening [at a Republican fundraiser] will be chicken. It is called "the Hilary special".

Two small breasts and two fat thighs.

Oh, how very droll, right? Aside from bashing Hil (who I like, although I do have some issues with her) what bothers me here is that instead of bashing her on the basis of her ideas, the person is bashing her on her looks. It's tired, cliche, and just downright dumb. It's as if the worst insult we can say about a woman is that she's unattractive (if, as our society instructs us to, you find large thighs and small breasts unattractive). We're still equating a woman's value with her attactiveness. This is a woman who could be the first woman to run for president, and the insult hurled at her is that she's ugly? B.F.D. To insult her attractiveness only makes the insulter look ignorant. Bash her on her ethics or policies; give me a good joke based on Whitewater. For heaven's sake, if you're going to insult her, at least make it relevant and funny.

Eating Mofo
I’m having a really hard time today. Work is so stressful that I want to eat and eat and eat, and I’m hungry too, which just makes it worse. The problem is that I don’t trust that I’m really hungry, even though I can feel that emptiness in my stomach. And I want to eat for the wrong reasons, not because it’s lunch time. When I picture myself eating I see myself tearing into the food, almost violently, snapping off pieces with my teeth. It’s not “Oh hey, let’s have a sandwich”, it’s “God I’m so frustrated I’m taking it out on my sandwich.” So now I feel afraid to eat. I don’t want to eat for the wrong reasons, but at this moment it seems like all I have are wrong reasons. But I feel like I actually am hungry.

I’m going to take a walk and see if I can’t dissipate some of this frustration. Maybe then I’ll feel like I can eat.

You know that feeling that you haven't slept at all but you know you must have because the hours between 11 and 3:30 went by in about 5 seconds and unless you were in an alcoholic blackout you must've slept, but 5 seconds doesn't seem like nearly enough time and it still seems like yesterday, which means you're putting in another 8 hours at work and doesn't that qualify you for overtime or something?

"Dweee-ooo AH-ah"
This movie brings back so many memories from college. My friend Andy used to do this whole routine as a monologue and he was brilliant at it. It still makes me howl with laughter.

"Irma's gonna go nuts"

"Whatever, Dad."
I swear my father has some sort of “Amy’s feeling better about herself so I’d better make sure that comes to a stop” radar. Got the first email I’d gotten from him in months, which is naturally the first communication of any kind we’ve had in months. Of course half of the email is about how no one recognized my brother at our cousin’s wedding a few weekends ago. No one recognized him because he was so skinny and isn’t that just fan-fucking-tastic? This being an email from my father, however, half the email comes to about 3 sentences. Honestly I’m not as angry as this post might sound. My reaction was mostly, “Whatever, Dad.” It’s not even that I don’t have the energy to deal with him. It’s mostly that I just don’t give a good god damn.

This may sound disingenous, but I'm tired of not having anything to wear since I lost weight. Yes, I know I should be rejoicing that I'm a smaller size. (Oh please, it's a random number.) But it took me 20 minutes to get dressed this morning because everything I reached for was too big. Maybe I should clean out my closet this weekend and just get rid of everything that's too big or that I hate. Of course, that would leave me with about 4 outfits.

Welcome to my world.

Let's get a few fashion rules straight
  1. If you're wearing a down-filled parka, it's too cold to be wearing flip flops. Put on some real shoes, moron.
  2. Mules are never to be worn with hosiery, particularly black socks.
  3. Dark orange self-tanned skin and highlights gone green from oxidation do not make you look hot. They make you look like an alien.
  4. If your pants' legs are dragging on the ground, either wear taller heels or shorten your fucking pants!

That is all.

I've suspected #6 for a very long time.

Ten Top Trivia Tips about Orora!

  1. Orora can pollinate up to six times more efficiently than the honeybee.
  2. Orora will give a higher yield if milked when listening to music.
  3. Orora is black with white stripes, not white with black stripes.
  4. In Eastern Africa you can buy beer brewed from Orora.
  5. Orora is actually a vegetable, not a fruit.
  6. Contrary to popular belief, Orora is not successful at sobering up a drunk person, and in many cases she may actually increase the adverse effects of alcohol.
  7. Some birds use Orora to orientate themselves during migration.
  8. If you drop Orora from more than three metres above ground level, she will always land feet-first.
  9. Orora once lost a Dolly Parton lookalike contest.
  10. The condom - originally made from Orora - was invented in the early 1500s.

My relationship with my dad, in one quote
"I was like a team that he (my dad) didn't follow. Sure he'd heard of the 49ers, but it wasn't his team. I wasn't his team. No problem with the 49ers. Wish 'em well, as long as they weren't playing his team which was him."

More about the firee
She was a strange one. She left 16 bankers boxes of personal items and an easel here that we're going to send to her. It's mostly pink and white storage files, containers and bookends. There was so much pink it was like a Hello Kitty store exploded in her office.

I have no idea how she accumulated all that stuff in the 5 weeks she was employed here. I've been here 5 years and I don't have that much crap!
