Looking back at it all I can totally understand why! :)

 

And to be honest, he really was a nice guy. Just incompetent when it came to 50% of the job and lacked basic manners.

That's the worst.  The nice people who are just totally incompetent for the job.  You dislike them because they make your job harder, but you feel bad for disliking them because they're a nice person.

You can't even get the satisfaction of knowing that they know that you know they suck since the majority of the time they're blissfully unaware of how incompetent they are.

Jeez.  No wonder I'm hungry.  It's friggin' 2 pm and I haven't even thought about lunch.  Just been gleefully throwing away things over here.  They brought me a big ol' bucket.

of KFC?

In which to throw the garbage generated by my file cleanup.

FYI: Subways new "garlic" bread has no discernible taste of garlic to it.

Sad.  Though my favorite subway bread is that parmesan oregano kind.  Or the Italian herbs and cheese, if they don't have that.

It's always a nice lift for the ol' ego when chefs and sous chefs devour your cooking.

Right?  I will grant you that they'd both had several beverages and were likely on the side of thinking anything was amazing.  But still definitely an ego boost ;)

i actually don't have to do any filing at my job anymore. the one filing task i had we finally did away with the paper version of. it's glorious.

 

I am so jealous.  I have EVERYTHING electronically, but they're so old fashioned here that they don't feel they can do away with paper files.  I think they're worried that something will happen to the electronic ones (despite the fact that they get backed up every single night).

It was like pulling teeth to get somebody to tell me that I could get rid of meeting packets from 10 years ago.

Can I just say for the record: There is little related to filing that is as satisfying as going through to organize and getting the ok to throw about 3/4 of the stuff in the trash :-D


I re-read that three times and I read "filing" as "filling" each time...I want pie.

Pumpkin?  I have pumpkin at home.  I will totally make you pie.

I made some pumpkin flax muffins last night that were to die for.  The batch made 16.  I took 6 out with me because I figured I couldn't finish more than 10 before they go bad.  My bf and his sous chef came out to meet me after work and we went back to my place for a bit (the sous just moved to our neighborhood).  I now have 2 muffins left.  Between the two of them, they polished off the rest, and half of the leftover spinach and artichoke pasta I made earlier in the week.  Heh.

I hate filing with a passion.  But the more of this I get to throw away, the easier the rest of the filing becomes. :)

I agree, Sammi, but maybe he really did think that there was a possibility she would be coming home.  She might have led him to believe that.  Either way, though, not really fair to be ambiguous with the kids.

Really makes you wonder what some people think or rather don't think when having kids , kids as in more than one, as if having one wasn't good enough...

I dunno... I never thought that my parents had my brother because I wasn't "enough"...  I do think that some people don't really think about what it means to be a parent prior to having kids.  But that kinda goes with the territory, I suppose.  Some people don't think through most of their decisions.

True.  He might really have thought that was a possibility.  I suppose it's difficult to weigh all of the repercussions when going through something like that.  Still.

Aaaaanyway, happier talk.  Maternity clothes! :-D

Just ran into a young associate that I haven't seen for 3 years. Conversation went like this:

Me: You look good. How are things?
Him: Wife cheated on me. We got divorced. I got custody of the children and got the house. She just wanted an airplane ticket to Germany and $20,000 to start a new life with her on-line lover. They got married last May. I look better because I am so afraid of dying while my children are still young. I take much better care of myself now. The hardest thing for me is not knowing what to tell my children when they ask me: "Mom's ticket is for a round trip. Do you think she'll come back?"

He rushed off to a meeting. I swear I can feel the weight on his shoulders.

:( Poor guy. He can have a pineapple for half price. And a hug...for full price.

Why on earth would he have told his kids that he bought his ex wife a round trip ticket?  Easier on them to think "Mom's in Germany now with her new husband" than to constantly think "if I'm just good enough and wait long enough, maybe Mom will come back to me" or "she just really must not love us anymore.  Dad gave her a ticket to come back, and she doesn't even want to use it"... O.o

Perhaps I just over-think this stuff.

The last time I really, really liked a shampoo I used was probably 10 years ago at least.  Then they stopped making it.

I'm so tired of buying expensive things and going "eh" that I now just stick to the cheap stuff.

I very rarely purchase things based on the smell.  Unfortunately, I just can't smell most of it, so it doesn't really matter to me.  I do enjoy being told my hair/lips/etc. smell awesome, but since I can't smell them, I just buy things and get lucky sometimes.

I knew a girl who had no sense of smell and even though I knew it, I was forever asking her to smell stuff.  She'd just smile and oblige and then I'd forehead smack cuz I'm an idiot.

Heh, all of my friends do this.  I've had that exchange many, many times. :)

I used to have a lip gloss when I was younger and it was a lip smacker brand. The first one I got smelt like berry icecream sundae so I tasted it. It was delicious! The other ones I got after that just tasted like lip gloss and chemicals :(

Lip Smacker made some awesome ones when I was a kid.  EVERYBODY had those in middle school :)

Oooo look at this thingy!

I always get sick of shower gel scents long before they run out.  I might just have to order this for myself.

Oooo that's nifty!

Allergy Remedies
Is It Possible to Go Natural?
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
