Fifty is Nifty!

PANDAWATCH!! Day 3...

Just kidding, no pandas. (Unless this panda decides to comment...) Just un-panda-ish ol' me still doing the diet thing. It is day 3 though. I'm eating my homemade turkey breast meatballs and whole wheat spaghetti and even though I'm not in love with it, at least I'm not eating it with like a whole loaf of garlic bread and a mound of parmesan (if only!)

Before we get started here, I would like to mention that I got my 50th Follower today, weeee! That's pretty awesome to me because I dunno why anyone would wanna read the junk that comes outta my head, but like, at least 50 people do, so that's pretty fuckin' sweet, says I. So...thanks Chews to Lose, for being official number 50! I would send you a prize or something but the price of stamps is outrageous these days. But you get this nifty shout-out that FIFTY people (might) see, so chin up!

So I been doing alright diet-wise. Eating a lot of boring fibery shit and drinking boring ol' water. I mean, I know I can do this, cause I've done it many times before. And even now, like, I'm eating okay and all, but in my head I still feel like this is something way temporary. I still don't think I have the willpower to be good on a vacation or like...my birthday. I guess I just have to convince myself that even if I fuck up, I gotta get right back on it. That's always been my problem. I can be a total diet nazi for like MONTHS, but then I have that one bad, like really terrible, day that just flips the switch and suddenly I'm eating nonstop for like a year until finally no pants fit and I'm like "fuck."

I still haven't started packing...le sigh. I will start soon!

Work is still pissing me off. Man, it's just no fun anymore. I know it's MY JOB, and it's not really supposed to be "fun", but what's the harm in getting paid to be at a place you don't hate? They really hate when we start having fun. That's why I got moved. I sit in the cubicle RIGHT in front of my boss' office. IT SUCKS! I feel like I'm constantly being watched like the bad kid in class. I would understand the "bad-apple" treatment if I wasn't getting my work done, but I'm being super fast and super efficient with the shit they give me and in turn, I have a lot of down time to piss away. This is not my fault.

Anyway, I got pissed off today because I had this semi-elaborate April Fool's plan all set to go and my assistant manager put the kaibosh on it by telling me that I could do it but I would probably get fired. Man! I didn't think it was all that bad, and certainly nothing worth losing my job over. But I forgot about the new NO FUN ALLOWED policy.

Sheri is a lady at work that sits next to me. She's from Denver and talks nonstop about how great Denver is and how much she hates it here in Vegas. She sprays her very loud very obnoxious perfume all over herself in her cubicle MULTIPLE times a day. She complains about everything. Thusly she has become the victim of most of my work tomfoolery. She's one of those ladies who overuses phrases like "I'm not 40, I'm 39.99!" So yeah, she's got an age thing. So I decided to get those window markers and go write HAPPY 60th BIRTHDAY SHERI!! all over the windows of her giant Tahoe. But alas...thwarted. No fun allowed. Woulda been funny, I think. Oh well. Maybe next time. Least I still got a job, right?...so shut up and do your work! That seems to be the general mentality so whatever.

Anywho, work bitching is over.

One more thing...there's these two little fat-kid twins that moved into an apartment by where I park my car. I see them every nite when I get home from work lately. They are like so nerdy fat cute, with their little harry potter glasses. So cute. Anyway, they're always sitting on this step outside their apartment playing their Nintendo DS'. I wonder if their mom sends them out to get exercise every afternoon and they just sit there playing Pokemon or whatever until they're allowed to come back in? I see a gaggle of kids always running around back and forth in front of them and they never seem tempted to join in. It's cute that they're so obnoxiously nerdy but also kinda sad cause I see obesity in their future. Anyway, I was just gonna mention that earlier I thought I would take a picture to show you guys, then I thought how I would probably get arrested for taking pictures of kids that aren't mine. Sometimes I forget about the world we live in. Oh well.

Shit, I got all caught up in typing this epic post and my dinner got cold. I'ma go heat this up and see who gets kicked off Idol. Pacific time sucks! See ya.

I have been waiting for you!!! Creepy huh?

Your friend Sheri reminds me of "Boston" from the Bad Girls Club 3. Yes I watch it.

Take the picture anyways. I wanna see the nerdy fat kids. I think we should all post a pic of ourselves as kids. I was a tad chubby. Wow. This is probably your most boring and random comment ever.

Eating healthy doesn't have to be boring, I mean you could eat oatmeal with peanut butter, or oatmeal with honey, or oatmeal with cinnamon. Eh, it's still oatmeal though.

Maybe if Steve Carrell became your boss, the workplace would be a bit more tolerable.

u r teh r0xxz0r!

lol @ the panda stuff...

Your blog is awesome missus, no wonder you have 50 devotees! Get on the packing! Think of the calories you'll be burning moving shit around!

lol I kinda want to see the those nerdy twins but you would probs get into trouble. I got yelled at for taking pictures of myself at the swimming pool. Apparently I could be a paedophile...

HopeFool said...

51 already! Congrats!


Those kids sound a little like mine. DS FREAKS.

You could always take a pic and blur their faces out...of course then you should probably make sure their location is not in the picture and by the time you blur out street signs, apartment numbers, license plates and obvious landmarks...it's just not worth it. :-)
Sheri sounds like a piece of work. I could not tolerate the perfume thing either. You'd think they'd make that against company policy too. 2 types of workers that should NEVER wear perfume are office workers and anyone in the restaurant biz.

Two super quick suggestions. (1) You think eating wheat spaghetti is temporary- because you want it to be because you don't like it. Keep trying healthy alternatives to food, cause you will like something. I prefer ronzoni smart pasta- and I can actually eat it cause it tastes good. (2) Are you at least looking for a different job? I think you'd be amazed at how great a good job with a good boss can be. Try smaller companies. These people will get to know you and love you (pranks and all).

I agree with irjessica, try the Ronzoni Smart Pasta OR Barilla Pasta Plus, they both taste so much better than the standard wheat pasta. Also if you mix regular and wheat together (50/50 mix) you could work your way over to wheat, instead of just going at 100% on day one.

Food shouldnt be boring, you'll start to find things that you like more and more :) You can find healthier alternatives of the things that you ate in the past. Ex/ Ate McDonalds? Try doing a light english muffin, wedge of laughing cow cheese (light), 2 slices of center cut bacon and an egg fried in Pam...its like a Bacon Egg & Cheese McMuffin for WAY fewer calories and grams of fat.

You are doing the right things, so keep up the good work.

a no fun call center? jeebus that is harsh. I agree, look for a new job. At least you can see what else is out there. Here I sit, monitoring new Indian helpdesk agents with our client. They're too nervous to have fun right now, but let me tell you when I took calls, I was sill-eeee...makes ya punch drunk or burns you out fast otherwise. You are creative and hilarious. Find folks who appreciate that in your work environment if you can!!

Live for the weekend... that's what I do.

WonderLori said...

Good work on the diet, little sis. I'm so proud! *sniff*

I love perfume so 'm probably heck to work with. On the other hand, I don't wear much and NEVER musk. Maybe instead of writing on this Sherri character's windows you could have 60th birthday balloons delivered anonymously. Same effect but even more people would see it!

Kelly said...

Yum FRO YO! ( frozen yogurt lol) we have a place that has the best peanut butter flavor...but they hardly ever have it! Ggrrrr Speaking of peanut butter PB2 is great. I make it and put it in toast/english muffins for breakfast. I havent used it for much else but I enjoy how much healthier it is for ya. OOOHH! Its not very sweet!! I add honey OR sometimes truvia to help. Hope you like it!
