snogged: ([Doctor Who] WTFF?)


Okay...I can forgive children for thinking I'm pregnant. They don't know any better and often times, they're pretty oblivious about how babies are born anyway. My 4-year old neighbor thinks girls get pregnant from eating.

But adults? Seriously. Don't fucking ask me if I'm pregnant. I have a damn muffin top...that I'm trying to correct thru exercise, nutrition, and all that shit.

I'm not pregnant and I'm not going to be so eff the fuck off.

This rant has been brought to you by stupid, fucking people on Facebook that call themselves my friends.

We lost access to our network/internet access at work today because some stupid fuck-nut from Frontier Wireless cut our cable when they were working on other shit.

It's really amazing how necessary technology has become to my line of work. We don't keep paper files (if we did, I'd go insane.) My daily work is possible because of the online case system we use as well as having access to my work email. Thankfully, my first appt of the day cancelled and my second appt was an intake so I had some paper versions of my intake form handy.

*sigh*

On the bright side, I keep a number of books in my office so it wasn't too bad focusing my attentions on a book related to focused acceptance, commitment therapy, and brief strategies for radical change. But...doing it for five out of the eight hours in my work day did not make me an especially happy camper.

Here's hoping the connection gets fixed tonight!

*crosses fingers*

I am so frustrated with LJ right now. I know they are working to resolve the issue with the "connection reset" page, but they are a bunch of bozos if they think hitting the refresh button helps.

I've been trying read and comment on friends' entries, but keep getting locked out.

I apologize if you have posted something and I haven't gotten a chance to comment.

So...when we ordered my wedding dress ~two weeks ago, the bridal consultant said it would take six weeks to deliver it. The bridal consultant also told us that if we got our alteration appointment scheduled right away when it was delivered that they could hang onto for us.

Imagine my surprise when I got an email yesterday stating the dress came in and I had to pick it up in 14 days.

I called David's Bridal today and was informed that because my wedding isn't until September, the first alteration appointment won't happen until June. Then, she said the girl who had helped me was new and didn't know anything because it's a liability for the store to keep the dress there.

So now I have to find time to drive to Madison in the next two weeks, pick up the dress, and find a place to keep it in my tiny apartment with two closets that are already full. Then, I have to haul it back to said store next summer to get my alterations done.

Moral of the story: Wedding dress retail stores are stupid.

I shouldn't be surprised that she responded to the message I sent her.

Her follow-up is behind this cut for those who are interested in feeling rage-y )

Honestly, I can't even bring myself to respond to her.

All I can do is defriend.

And I'm thinking it might not hurt to outright block her.

So does anyone remember that Incredible Bat Presentation I went to a few months ago?

Well, for those who don't, I went. I had a lot of fun. And I really enjoyed chatting with the woman who presented it so much so that I added her as a friend on Facebook.

I'm beginning to regret it.

She's a serious Republican, possibly even Tea Party-level Republican.

She's told me in the past that she grew up in Reagan's era, believes in trickle-down economics, and thinks a Republican president would lead us down the path of prosperity.

For a while, I was ignoring her. If her political posts came up, I would ignore them or hide them or do whatever it took to avoid seeing her get all twitter-pated about Paul Ryan.

And then this morning happened.

She posted a venting comment about Obama having a $20,000 fundraiser with various NBA Players.
The initial post that she put up on Facebook today: The president was addressing a group of 120 current and former NBA stars and other wealthy supporters attending the $20,000 per plate "Obama Classic" fundraiser in New York City. Spotted in the crowd were co-host Michael Jordan and his fiancee, Yvette Prieto, Bill Bradley, Patrick Ewing, Education Secretary Arne Duncan and Walt "Clyde" Frazier.
"This is my dream team," Obama told the group at the top of his remarks.
"It's very rare I come to an event where I'm like the fifth or sixth most interesting person. Usually, people want to take a picture with me, sit next to me, talk to me. … That has not been the case at this event," he joked.


Which was followed by what she felt in response: " I think he comes off in these remarks as very arrogant. It's rare he goes to an event where he is not thought of as the most interesting person? And these ultra-rich (especially in the case of Michael Jordan) people are his dream team. So are you less fortunate, poorer people feeling his LOVE?? I just don't see the attraction to this man."

Which was than followed up by this: "I also think it is nervy of him to criticize Akin for his remarks, and say he obviously missed science class. Well, Mr. 57 states, and needs to visit one more, where were you in Social Studies and Geography??"

I decided to respond in a message and told her flat out that she supports Akin and his remarks, despite ROMNEY coming out against Akin and urging him to drop from the race, that I would drop her as a friend on Facebook.

I'm tempted to do it before she even responds back.

Bitch.

I'm going to start by saying that I normally get along very well with my co-worker. Part of this is because, she is essentially the only person in the office I can consult with on cases on days that aren't Tuesday mornings when my supervisor comes. Part of this is because I genuinely think of her as a friend.

However...

Today, I wanted to sucker punch her in the face.

We had a staff meeting in the Madison office (basically, this is where Voc Rehab Central is and us outlying counties drive there for staff meetings once a month.) I was the one to drive because B drove last month.

After the meeting, we decided to grab lunch and B asked another counselor to join us. The agreement was the other counselor would follow me to the restaurant.

Admittedly, B knows Madison that we were on better than me so I obviously relied on her for directions. I will also admit since it's probably relevant, that I have some anxiety with driving due to the accidents I've been in and the fact that I don't like driving in big cities. Madison definitely qualifies as a big city, but the area we were in wasn't so bad.

We got to a stoplight where I had to make a right turn. It's legal to make a right-hand turn on a red light in Wisconsin, however, I had someone following me so I wanted to be respectful and wait before I pulled out. B pointed out that I could make a "right turn on red" and I respectfully declined.

When we got to the restaurant, we pulled into the parking lot and she had the audacity to tell me that I seemed "scared" and she said she could drive from now on.

I pointed out that the reason I waited at the red light was to give the other counselor a chance to follow us instead of getting 3-4 blocks ahead. I also said that I didn't appreciate her being a backseat driver.

Ugh!

Believe me when I say that I hope I never have to follow her car anywhere. I'd be bound to get horribly lost!

Why the fuck can't we just care about people? Why the fuck does shit happen? And most of all, why the fuck aren't politicians giving a rat's ass?

I've always believed that homosexual couples should be entitled to the same damn rights that heterosexual couples have. And I hate how much this country really sucks sometimes.

I really loathe coming up with titles for fics.

They always end up feeling really lame to me.

ABC has decided not to pick up Ugly Betty for another season, and I find that super lame.
First, they had to stick it on Friday's death row instead of letting it lead in Grey's Anatomy and then, they tried to fix everything by moving it back to Wednesdays but clearly any heals that might have been made from the move aren't worth sticking around to witness.

Why must they cancel good shows?

The trend I've been seeing with this latest glitch has been me not getting comments that are specifically on my own journal, but I appear to getting comments from the communities I post too.

It's weird and I don't like it.

Fix this, LJ!

Seriously.

My brain and my muse are clearly not working in sync at the moment.

I've been trying to work on the Angel/Lily crossover fic (which is really more a friendship thing than a smutty thing as it turns out) but I feel like I'm running into a wall.

And then I've got this great idea for a Willow/Spike/Angel multi-chapter but I can't even bring myself to sit down and write the first chapter.

*sigh*

I suspect July is not gonna be a particularly prolific month.

Warning: Annoying People Rant Ahead.

So the internet in my apartment is currently down and to keep myself from going crazy, I headed down to the campus library to check LJ and Gmail and things.

It occurs to me why I like my internet at home so much.

Because it does not feature an annoying boy sitting next to me with headphones who has the most obnoxious laugh in the entire world. It makes me wince and cringe each time he does it. And he mumurs to himself about whatever it is that he's watching, which is also ticking me off.

Gah!

I need to get out of here, dudes!

And I want my own damn internet to be working when I get home today.

ETA: I'm back home and my internet is back on. And the only sound I hear is NPH reading off the Top Ten List for Letterman. It's lovely :)

Okay, so the new episode of HIMYM (The Stinsons) was pre-empted by Obama's speech last night. I get that and am doing my darndest to move on in the spirit that CBS will have to air the episode eventually (I'm still crossing my fingers for next week). I mean they probably knew about this for awhile and knew how they would need to revamp their schedule.

However, I've heard that CBS won't be airing the episode till March 2nd which *grr* but again, I can suck it up.

The main thing that really confuses me though is apparently it was leaked on iTunes and Amazon.com for a short while and some people were able to watch it.

WHAT THE HELL??

Don't they have memos for this shit?
