the boycott continues

It’s really not just me being a brat. The caf� has no idea how to appease the vegetarian masses. I know I’m not the only one, either. The best part about their “lunch menu” is that they indicate Weight Watchers points with each day’s meal description. If you’ve ever known anyone to try Weight Watchers, you learn that each day is allotted 20-25 points depending on your goal weight; well each of the caf�’s lunches are between 20 and 25 points! Why bother? I’m also disappointed in their near-refusal to make me a fresh sandwich. Their problem solving skills include making 20 turkey and swiss and one veggie sandwich in the morning and putting them in the cooler. If I wanted a sandwich that was made this morning and put in a cooler, I would have brought my own sandwich. Needless to say, today I’ll be having rice pilaf.

horse’s ass

I just like thinking that really loudly about people. Anyhow, I got the Badge-A-Minit and the Handy Stitch yesterday in the mail, but I didn’t get a chance to try either of them out. I ate in the caf� at work today for the first time since Halloween. I wonder if I’m getting weak, lazy, or both?

cold

Normally, I hate it when people are like, “it’s so cold out! i can’t wait til summer.” and then when August comes around and it’s like 150 degrees with humidity, they’re like, “i wish it was January!”. I’m f*cking cold. Not just toes and fingers, but cold to the core. It takes me a while to heat up after being outside. Matter of fact, I don’t think I ever actually get warm at work. The heat is on some sort of timer that drops 10 degrees right after lunchtime. Anyhow. I’m busy today.

O?O

Knitting is fun! I’d write a book about it, but that title is already taken. So I admit I didn’t think I could do it. Mom stuck with crocheting for the same reason. It’s an extremely zen process and if I can keep that in my head, I can knit anything! Homework assignment: Find out when and why someone was sitting on their rock and decided to grab the two sticks on the ground and weave a string around them in order to make a blanket. Cuz I’m sure they didn’t start with washcloths.

last night

was so fun! I told the host (via email) that it was probably the most stimulating of any evening I have had the pleasure to participate in. That said, I should point out that I’m easily amused. Any more than 7 other people and I become a hermit; though, T. had to task out the opportunity to get me to converse. Strange, that. I think part of my want to keep quiet is that I know something stupid is going to come flying out of my mouth. I mean, I’m still at the stage where impressing these neighbors is important. T.’s wife is very nice, too. :) She offered to lend me her sewing machine because she doesn’t use it. How trusting is that!

stitch and bitch

Hooray! Thanks to places like Reprodepot Fabrics and DIY, we’re on our way to stardom and moving far away from boredom. Tomorrow is the first session of the stitch and bitch club. The secondary happiness that this brings me is that I’ll just have to make a logo and a website and business cards and blah blah blah blah blah. :) Fun times.

workin’ gal

If you’re close enough to me, you might have noticed my complaining as of late. I sit around at work for a while, waiting for stuff to do, and then all of a sudden I get super busy. This procedure and happenstance doesn’t bother me until I am no longer busy. I love being busy! I should work at a daily publication. I hate sitting around for more than 30 minutes wasting everyone’s time. Today, I am busy.

two things

1. So, I used to have these three standard passwords that I would use for the various internet things in my life.. but then it got so hectic that I’d have to cycle through the three just to figure out which one was for what online service. So one day, I went through and made them all the same (new) password. After a while, certain things became more important and needed a special, new, password to protect my online integrity. Now I’m up to 4 or 5 passwords for everything and back to the same rigmarole. But before you start hacking into my eBay account, I’ll assure you, it’s not as simple as “1L0v3F3rr3t$”, I’m smarter than that.
2. My workmatefriend just got back from holiday and has a newely refreshed attitude about crafting! We might start a little club of girls and their crafty silly things (buttons, bracelets, crazy stuff). Look out Badge-A-Minit!

bleh.

So I think I’ll be spending most of the week here gathering ideas and instructions for previously mentioned projects. This is a funny site for anyone who’s interested in making fun of dotcommers. The funny thing is, I had/have friends who work at Scient and Sapient, just a few of the names eNormicom has helped poke fun at.
