Covering

FIRST: If I see that "So long, farewell, blah blah blah" car commercial one more time, I'm going to set myself on fire. "The Sound of Music" USED to be one of my favorite movies growing up. They always showed it around Christmas time. Christmas is OVER, you DICKHOLES! Seeing these idiot car salesmen wannabe's dancing like that makes me want to kick a box. Or learn to kickbox one of them. One of the two.

Onward.

I'm covering the front desk Friday and Monday, kiddos, so time is of the essence. I'll do my best to get up earlier, since I have to be in the office early, but UGH! There's always some time over the weekend to catch up, although Saturday is pretty full and I'm seriously thinking of going in on Sunday to catch up on MY work. And here I said I wanted it all to myself.

NOOOOOOO!!!!!! I'm becoming my mother!!!! (she and I joke about that all the time. Believe me, it's a GOOD thing.)

Apartment hunting can wait...AGAIN.

Not that I'm complaining! I'll be shining like a brand new penny and loving every minute of the peace I'll be getting from not having the energy SUCKED OUTTA me like the blood from someone trapped in a leach-infested river. No listening to incessant beatles, billy joel, and god knows WHAT female sickass depressing artist on the front desk ipod (which, by the way, if I have to ask one more fucking time to have her turn it down I'm going to get a river rock and crush the fucking thing AND the speakers), no incessant tic-tic-tic-tic-tic from the IM and 'net typing. AND, no more listening to the "buzz" of her cell phone and hearing the "smack!" of her closing it after text messaging all fucking day. If only for two days, it will be refreshing, no matter what gets thrown my way. For two days, I won't be praying for a valium, or for a meteor to drop on me and put me out of my misery.

Living HELL has been given a reprieve. THEN, I'm gonna take a few days off. Maybe just two. Don't get me wrong. I love my JOB. I LOVE this COMPANY.

I just need to bite the bullet.

Hope everyone has a great, safe weekend. Smooches!

"Christmas is OVER, you DICKHOLES"!

LIES! Just like Scrooge I keep Christmas in my heart all year round.

There has been a shitload of commercials still using Christmas music. Did you see the Special K one where the little girl sees her mother bending over, and calls her Santa?

Have a good weekend K.

How does the receptionist get anything done? Or is her only job just to sit there, look pretty and answer the phone?

cork ~ Christmas is in my heart year-round, too, I just hate it being shoved down my throat.

pud ~ I have NO idea how she doesn't fall down every day. I seriously think she's either on drugs or has some SERIOUS A.D.D.

I cringe every time that damn commercial comes on t.v.

and then I change the channel.
GAH!

How does the receptionist not get fired?

Who's she blowing?

That's what I want to know!

Instead of biting the bullet, you could perhaps AIM the bullet in certain directions.

I'm glad I can ignore most stuff that annoys me. LOL.

Oh, and I cringe at becoming my mother. The thought is truly terrifying.

My kids love that commercial. *snicker*

they make such big deal over video games being a factor when some nutjob goes ballistic and kills a ton of innocent folk....I'm leaning towards those annoying commercials...more than once I've had to self medicate over those damn GAP and Old Navy commercials...well that's my excuse anyway.

enjoy the weekend...and remember nothing is so bad that a little quiet stroll throwing rocks through clothing storefronts can't cure.

I'll come out and choke her just until she turns blue in the face and her eyes bug out if you want me too..........of course you'll have to feed me some of that comfort food you keep cooking

Whenever I see "Sound of Music," I usually fast-fastforward over most of the songs. The only one I don't fast-forward over is Christopher Plummer singing "Eidelweiss." Once upon a time, Christopher Plummer was hot. I loved the way he looked at Maria as if he wanted to rip her clothes off right then and there.

Well, he did look that way.
