grump

fact: i am surrounded by stupid people who ask me questions they could answer themselves with a click of the mouse.

fact: i am selfish and mean, and prone to sudden bouts of irrational insecurity.

fact: i have no quarters with which to do laundry!

fact: someone is selling a nightie on ebay with a picture of sam waterston as jack mccoy on it.

theory: there is not a balance in me between the consumer and the producer, between the listener and the speaker. to be happy, i'll have to make that balance.

fact: people are yelling at each other as i write about who gets to have christmas eve off. i say THE FUCKING INTERNET TAKES CHRISTMAS EVE OFF. let's not even talk about how ethnocentric this whole "christmas as the tantamount holiday" thing is.

fact: i love the facial brush i got for my birthday. thanks amber. :)

You know, it's a shame that Mandy's birthday isn't soon, because a Sam Waterston nightie would be PERFECT. I mean, she might kill me. But it would be PERFECT!

Grr. For me, it's worse that they weren't even arguing about Christmas, but Christmas Eve. When did the day before the holiday become its own holiday!?!

well, to be fair, since it's the overnight, it's technically the same day. and to be honest, i have worked both christmas eve and christmas day now... and the overnight prior is much, much more depressing.

Plus they're clearly ignoring the grandest holiday in December, the 18th, hereinafter known as "Two Towers Day."

That's the day I'm worried about taking off!

I don't care what people celebrate - I just want the time off. If there's people in your office who would rather work than relax simply because of what the name of the holiday is, so be it. I'll be sitting @ home with a beer, kaythxbye. =-)

unfortunately, our problem is that no one wants to work it, and SOMEone has to. i did it last year, but then, other people are religious so should probably get that day off, i can respect that. but this is my chance to grump about how it's stupid that there's no such thing as a day of rest anymore. :)

A Facial Brush?
I have to ask - what the heck is that?

As for holidays, I like the system we have - which is weekends and holidays on rotating call. :)

But then again, we have a much smaller network. You know, if the freakin' Navy can take the day off...

Re: A Facial Brush?
it's a little brush you clean your face with. it exfoliates!
