You’re gonna need electoral approval and you don’t have the votes

A better cure for my recent anxiety and depression than my meds…

There’s so much I want to say, but I’m too busy crying tears of joy.

I will share this story, though.

The other day at work, I was telling a coworker of mine that I wished I could live somewhere in Europe, or Ukraine, because I have too many days when I hate my country.

He couldn’t understand why I would say that.

Well.

On Monday, I’m going to point to that map and tell him, “THAT’S why I hate this fucking country. This race shouldn’t have been this close.”

HALF THE FUCKING COUNTRY JUST SHOWED ITS TRUE COLOUR… and it’s white, white, white.

I’ve managed to burn myself out way past the point of burn out and I didn’t even think that was possible.

And yet, I’m still bringing work home. Still spending weekends in front of the computer.

I “clocked out” early today. I did the one big project I wanted to do and then that was it.

I’ll be back at it tomorrow, but tonight, we celebrate.

Can we talk about that tongue?

someone’s got a new movie coming out…

I’m back to reading Teen Wolf fan fic. Like tons of stories a week. My TW FF addiction is worse than my Yuri!!! on Ice one at this moment.

It’s so bad, I picked up the fic I started to write in 2017 (the failed NaNoWriMo / stop obsessing over buying a new house project) and started re-writing it. AGAIN. I’m on the third draft, but for whatever reason, I can’t write the characters the way I see them in my head… I never have a problem with writing out of character characters, but they feel wrong.

Which means it time to binge TW!

In the background.

While I work from home.

All day Saturday.

So… I got my job because a CEO networking group told my company’s owner that he needed a construction accountant.

I love construction accounting, and I love cleaning up messes.

But.

I’m still feeling like I bit off more than I could chew.

I started in April and have been tearing apart the Quickbooks file ever since.

I’m still working on January. JANUARY.

It wouldn’t be nearly so bad, but I can’t just write sweeping journal entries and delete transactions all willy-nilly.

Nope.

I tried that and it backfired.

Badly.

I had to undo everything I did to clean it up.

Because of the way the books had been kept previously, I’m literally tinking the books. Transaction by transaction…. everything’s getting fixed, but jesus fucking crispy christ on a goddamn pogo stick, is it time consuming.

I’ve never had to tink accounting transactions before.

Seriously, this is like fixing errors in a cabled blanket. Stitch by stitch by painful stitch, it gets pulled apart and put back together.

Actually, no. It’s worse.

I can’t put my job in time-out…

a-fucking-men

I can’t believe the country is split in the way it is. There is no middle ground. Not any more…

I’ve been trying to stay out of political conversations - ESPECIALLY at work, where they lean a little more conservative - but tend to fail.

I basically threw a co-worker out of my office today because she wouldn’t shut up about Pelosi.

I’d be OK with her speaking her opinion if everything she said wasn’t a direct quote from Fox News or Trump commercials, but…

I’m just so over Trump and his fucking joke of a presidency.

Could we please end 2020 on a good note by preparing to inaugurate Biden?

Please?

 

Just another day in the life

there really is something perfect for EVERY moment…


ME:“You’re so mean and scary! Grrr!”

HIM:“Yeah, I’m like a pterodactyl.”


I’m not sure why my brain automatically jumped to the Oatmeal’s cartoon, but I am ridiculously amused by that.

(And no. It wasn’t a conversation with my husband.)

It was a legit conversation with my boss. 

Yeah.

My boss.

He’s definitely a motherfucking pterodactyl…

(I find the weirdest places to work.)

 

- - - - - - - - - -

Writing.

Running.

Reading.

Working.

My life is so boring.

I can’t with this fucking show and I’m really not a huge Victuuri fan

So… that training I signed up for? It’s actually kind of working. At least, I feel like I’m pushing myself harder. Part of it is HAVING to do the runs and part of it is me trying to “show off” to the trainer. Totally the best money I’ve spent on running (excluding the treadmill, of course).

Speaking of, it hasn’t fucking shipped yet! I originally bought the cheaper one, but it wasn’t due to be back in stock until July 15th. They suckered me into an upgrade (basically, I saved $500 off the one I actually wanted) with the promise that it was in stock. I know I should be more patient, but the CRC Road Trip starts this week and I was really, really, really hoping I could break it in over the 10 days.

To ease my disappointment, I bought new HOKAs to break in. This time, I was smart enough to link them to my Garmin so that I could track the milage better. They feel just as good as the ones that have the 1,000 miles on them.

Today is an 8 mile long run, which I think is also my longest Racery run. Next weekend is a 9 mile long run. I’m starting to get nervous about the mileage, and then I remember… my dumb ass signed up to run a fucking MARATHON. And a 5K. And a 10K. And a half marathon. CONSECUTIVELY.

Jesus jumping Christ on a motherfucking pogo stick, I am an idiot.

Seriously.

Who decided that doing the Dopey Challenge was a good idea?

FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK

In other news, living at the office has become a thing.

I’ve been working some Saturdays and I still don’t feel like I’m making progress.

I mean, I know I am, but…

The financial statements actually are starting to report real, useful, data.

We’re finalizing our purchasing / AP procedure because it is a shit show.

We’ve had a bunch of turnover, including a girl who barely lasted an entire day.

People are on 30 and 60 day notices and my 90 day trial period is ending in about a week.

Our best admin employee is a 16 year old high school drop out, who is working part time. Of course, he’s working there because his dad got him hired, but he is so much more productive than the kid he replaced. Original kid had a degree in engineering, but had no interest in doing it… which makes me wonder why he ever bothered to piss away all that money on college if he didn’t want to work in that field. I mean, I have two Bachelors and the last thing I want to do is barely interesting admin work.

Picking up Polish in earnest as of today.

Rewatched Hamilton last night. I picked up so many new details. (Also, it was the anniversary of the Burr/Hamilton duel so it felt like the proper thing to do.)

Speaking of Hamilton, one of the girls in Hamilclaws doesn’t like the movie because it doesn’t flow like the soundtrack. Uh, it’s two very different things. I love the soundtrack, don’t get me wrong, but I do like the musical just as much. I think it’s the emotion… you don’t really get that in a polished recording. Some of the expressions… the additional scene… the fucking emotion Pippa is capable of. I think the reason I didn’t like it live the first time I saw it was that I wasn’t close enough to the stage and - possibly - the touring cast might not have been as good. Our King George was SO MUCH BETTER than Groffsauce, but I can’t remember the other actors, so that says a lot.

Working on becoming a notary today. Have to take a three hour course online so that will be the highlight of my day.

Being a grown up is boring.
