Random Reader Rant and/or Revel

You can talk about whatever is on your mind – quality of life issues, a beautiful tree you spotted, scuttlebutt, or any random questions/thoughts you may have. But please no personal attacks. I’ll open this thread every morning at 10am.

For those in the office today, hope you get an early dismissal!

  • Rant: In the office, and no one knows if we’ll actually get out early. It’s dead dead dead.

    Rave (?): 9 months preggo today!

  • My FQOTD: Is it just me, or does the guy’s head in PoP’s steamy suana VIDA advertisement look like it was pasted on his body?

  • Well, my boss is here (came in at 7:30 so she can leave early) and has already gone bonkers. The flipping out wouldn’t be so bad if she weren’t always so very wrong. My xmas wish is to not to have to come here anymore.

  • Rave: T-minus 3 hours until my holiday vacation starts!

  • rave: cookies. quiet day in the office.
    rant: sad after the break up last week

  • Rave: Early dismissal. I think I might just skip lunch and go home early!

    Rant: Cleaning the house, doing the laundry and wrapping presents all night and all day tomorrow. Hubby won’t be around to help.

  • Rant: Fire drill on the last day of school before winter break, while I was teaching the 4 year old class. OH MY GODDDDDDDDD, the chaos.

    Rave: Got my Madonna-esque front teeth bonded yesterday. They look fantastic, and it only took 20 mins! (Little rants: I got the dreaded novicane headache afterwards, and it kind of feels like I have something stuck in my teeth now.)

    Rave2: Vacation is coming… 4 hours left…!

  • Rave: My Galaxy Nexus came yesterday. I didn’t expect it until after the New Year. It was one of the best surprises in awhile.

    Rave: 45 minutes and I am done with work until next Thursday.

    Rant: 9-10 hour drive down to ATL.

    Rave: Get to see the father in law, he is doing well after his liver transplant.

    Happy Holidays everyone!!!

    Rant: I forgot to check in for Southwest flights last night and woke up early this morning with visions of crowded airplanes and not getting to sit next to my fiancee during the flight dancing in my head (I know, first world problem).

    Revel: My fiancee did not forget, so we have pretty decent boarding numbers.

    Revel: So many Christmas / Hanukkah / Holiday cards from family and friends.

    Double Revel: The cards from family members that include a note to my fiancee welcoming her to the family, even though they’ve never met her (and vice versa for cards from her family with notes to me). We both feel really lucky to have such great families.

  • Rave: Someone on 11st street has this lamp in their window. Made me laugh when I saw it.

  • Rant: Came into work early because i had an 830 am client. Client no showed. Thus begins the longest day every of 5 clients and a trauma group I’m covering for coworkers who have PTO (I just started 3 weeks ago…so I’ve accrued..1 hr). Before getting on a red eye flight back to DC to spend a long weekend with family.
    Rave: After 7 long months of unemployment I have a job that I adore. In a brand new city that I also adore and I am able to help persistantly mentally ill consumers with their recovery process
    Rave2: Stopped at starbucks drive through on my way in work today. The guy in front of me paid for my drink! I would have also paid it forward but there was nobody behind me! It really started off this long day on a high note!

    Rant: Slow day at work, so I’m torturing myself by looking at jewelry.

    Rave: Some of the jewelry I’ve found isn’t too spendy!

    Rant: At work and my boss has been trying to heap extra bullshit on me that doesn’t even need to get done. Seriously? I already established very explicitly before leaving yesterday what I would be getting done today (already a lot for a day that is typically a slack-off day for anyone who’s in).

    Rant: My roommate woke me up with a phone call last night at midnight to say that he couldn’t find his keys – but the kicker was he wasn’t outside the door needing to be let in, he was just heading home and asked me if I could stay up “for, like, twenty minutes” to let him. I basically told him, wtf, call me when you need to be let in, and then he texted me ten minutes later to say he found his keys (so he needn’t have even woken me up in the first place!).

    Rant: Have been coming down with a cold the past few days and stress + sleep deprivation are just making it worse.

    Rant: Boyfriend is out of town and thus can’t give me a big hug when I get home tonight which is what I really need.

    Rave: 10 days off starting tomorrow.

  • Rant: The cat litter box needs to be cleaned out.

    Rave: Sometimes its just easier to buy a new one and start over.
