Bears can smell their menstruation...

I'm in one of those "everything-is-pissing-me-off" funks right now. PMS...not helping.

Work...blech. Everyone's little personality quirks seem to be working together to keep me in a constant state of annoyance. Plus all the rules are really getting to me. The newest one is no cell phones in your work station (WHY?) and no food at the desks. That's really bumming me out because it's causing a definite crimp in my 5-small-meals-a-day plan. Theoretically, I guess that's what breaks are for, but by the time I make a meal/snack, there's no time left to eat it.

This job is so much like elementary school. It's like one bad kid ruins it for all of us. Someone brought in a fucking Steak n Eggs breakfast the other day and ate the whole thing at their desk. Never in my wildest dreams would I think it was okay to have a whole fucking steak at work...at my desk...in between phone calls. Then it was stinky hard-boiled eggs the next day. C'mon people. Little Johnny made the whole office smell so now the whole class has to go without snack. Just a little common sense, is all I'm asking. Just a tiny teeny baby bit. Argh.

Then I found out that my friend in IT got fired yesterday which SUPERSUCKS not only because he was a funny cool dude but also because he hooked me up a lot when it came to computer-y business. Sucks. He got fired for watching a "questionable" SNL skit on YouTube while at work. Someone walked by and heard it and ratted him out and he was fired, like...immediately. To say it bothers me is putting it lightly. I am so tired of the over-sensitivity of some people. I mean, I will openly admit that it was stupid to watch something titled "J*zz in My Pants" at your freaking desk, yeah, that was dumb. BUT...I mean, it was censored, and it was on network television, so it's not like he was watching a porno or something here. I dunno, I mean, I just don't get the kinda people who would get someone fired at a time like this with zero remorse over a freaking video that they clearly could have just turned away from. We live in a country where we're fortunate enough to have the freedom to be able to say whatever we want, and the cost for that is that other people are free to say whatever they want too and some people just don't fucking get that. It really pisses me off, can you tell?

Anyway...yeah, not in the greatest of moods lately. I went to pub trivia last night which I thought would put me in a better mood but it ended up making it worst because we lost by one stupid point because I wrote the wrong last name for some dude and everyone had a goddamn tantrum. It does suck, but still...Henderson...Anderson...it's a loud ass bar, it's hard enough to hear as it is. Oh well. I don't really care because the prize is a $50 beer tab and I don't even drink beer so what...ever. Jerks.

Jeff wanted In n Out Burger for dinner so I tried to order a sensibly as possible by just getting a burger, but by the time we got home I was so pissed off and crampy that I just took a bath and went to bed sans hamburger. So hey, at least I stayed within my points yesterday!

I stopped this morning to get oatmeal at Jamba Juice. If you haven't tried their oatmeal yet, you should...it's great! It's steel-cut oats cooked in soymilk so it's not that powdery instant shit that they try to pass off at Starbucks as "perfect oatmeal." Plus, it has a fruit and brown sugar topping all for only 5 points. My favorite is the apple cinnamon, FYI.

Hope you're all having a better day than me and even though this is my blog and I'm free to bitch nonstop if I want, I really don't prefer these shitty whiney entries, so I'll try to cut this shit out soon. Bye :)

Whew...you are having a bad week. Hopefully, the job will get better and people can stop being such whiney butt holes. Also, I love AnchorMan...one of the best movies of all time. :-) Wait, now I'm paranoid..that is where the title of your post came from...right? Crap, now I have to go look it up so I won't feel like a dummy. :-) Have a good day!

That is retarded he got fired over that shit. I won't even tell you what people get away with here (note, even sexual harassment is A-okay!). I hate the whole "punish everyone because we are too chicken to tell the one dumb ass to knock it off" mentality. Chicken shits!

Yes I cuss a lot okay?

I hope your day gets better. Although with all that shit I doubt it will, you might have to hit up the bong when you get home ;)

Poor Tricia. I know how you feel. Some days everything just grates on your nerves, huh? I hope it gets better soon. My suggestion is bong-free, though. Make yourself a nice hot cup of tea, run a bubble bath, light some candles and just relax. It always does wonders for me. Good luck and keep up the good work!

I DONT KNOW WHY WE'RE YELLING!!!!

I heart Brick Tamlin

and that quote is my absolute favorite!
(and yes.. I can quote most of the movie.. hello obssessed much?!)

That's pure crap about your friend getting fired.. I guess it depends on the the office environment.. I work at a radio station and anything goes here.. we even played the J*zz song on the radio a month ago.. All I can say is Karma is real and the person who turned your friend in will get theirs in the end..

I say bitch away missus! *channels some positive energy your way* that really is shitty about your friend. people just love having power over other peeps though.

yeah you have reason to be a little whiney, this week sucks without the PMS thrown in the mix. Sorry about your friend at work, that does suck. Some people apparently only feel worthwhile if they can point out all the stupid crap other people do to make themselves look better :(

SO proud that you were able to withstand the in and out burger! I've never had one but I've heard they rock.

That oatmeal sounds awesome. I wonder if I have jamba juice in my area?

As for the whole snacks issue: can you make up your snacks at home and bring them with your lunch so that all you have to do is open it up and eat it on your break?

BTW, the 5 small meals a day sounds great! I do so much better when I do something like this myself. I usually try to pair a protein with a carb (potato & cottage cheese..I know most people think its gross, nuts and fruit, yogurt and cottage cheese mix..I know another one that may gross people out, etc...find that low fat laughing cow cheese..that is some good stuff on pita bread or crackers)

I also want to let you know that I'm kind of extra motivated knowing you are trying so hard. Seriously...we need to keep each other on task :)

I hope today is going better for you. And the weekend's almost here, right? Your blog reminds me of the place I used to work. But of course I eventually was fired because I was considered a "troublemaker" for reporting cases of racism, sexism & favortism. And now here I am living in a beautiful house and painting to earn my living. I'd like to send that company a big thank you note! jeje But anyways, keep your chin up. Those days happen no matter where we are. And just fyi, if you ever happen to attend an art event and I'm there...YOU have free access to pick and choose as many plastic bracelets as you want! jeje
