I hope everyone had a peaceful and fulfilling Thanksgiving holiday. And that your day wasn’t full of chaos, turmoil or family strife as sometimes is the case. This year, oddly enough my mother was on her best behavior. Which is saying a lot as her “best” behavior is usually when she says something insulting without trying to insult. For example, I did all the cooking this year, and I made pumpkin cheesecake instead of pies. After dinner we had dessert and she asked for a piece of pumpkin cheesecake. I served her a plate with a cup of coffee, she took one bite and said “Oh, this is delicious, really it is. Mmm, it could use a bit more pumpkin pie spice thought.” I couldn’t wait for my parents to go home. Anyway onto…..
RANDOM THOUGHTS!!!!! (insert echo sound here).
More Independent Disney Princesses’
On Friday I was sitting around scrolling through the Disney+ channel and I began to watch the movie Brave. I think Merida is probably the most underrated Disney Princess ever! She’s amazing, she’s independent, strong, brave (hello?) stubborn and knows what she wants. So why haven’t we seen more of her?!?! Is it because she’s too independent? Come on Disney, get your shit together and get Merida her own show!!!
It’s a Novel Idea…..I think.
Last week before the holiday I was at Target, and I love walking through the book section because I’m always looking for new books to read, and I came across this!!! Its a novel called The Huntress.
But wait, theres more! (insert cheese late night advertisement here) I also found, tada…..Maggie Dove, which is also a novel.
But more importantly, it’s a novel named after another fellow blogger, Romcomdojo who writes, has wit and is hilariously amusing, her name? MAGGIE DOVE! Hey Maggs, I think we should sue, get some royalties or something, after all their using our names, let me know. I wasn’t Google stalking you, I was just curious to see if there were any more books with names of bloggers, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
Catsgiving Gravy Coma
Have you ever seen a cat in a gravy coma? No? Well let me introduce you to Charles Bruiser O’Houlihan, Kat Fight Klub champion of the El Paso eastside. I made him some homemade gravy to mix into his wet food on “Catsgiving” and he went to town for dinner. This is the picture of him afterwards, in his bed, in a gravy cat coma.
Personal Idiosyncrasies That Annoy
Why does it bother me so much that Baby Kermit clears her throat all day long? I’ve been using my headphones to keep out the background noise. Mind you, I have an office across the main office where Baby Kermit is situated. But, I can still hear her, all fucking day long, and what’s worse is I feel bad for JP, because his office is right next to hers. Oh, did I forget to mention that she’s annoyingly sweet, like overly friendly, as if she’s trying too hard to make friends. She’s reminds me of the character of Patty Simcox from Grease, and I’m Rizzo, just ready to rain on her happiness parade.
Like when Kenickie lifted her dress over her head at the big dance. I feel like doing that every single fucking day I’m at work….ugh.
I Really Have No Words…..
We have a lot of work, my office is unbelievably busy and it has been for over a month and a half. The worst part about all of this is, I have to read and sometimes re-write proposal narratives for faculty that are so horrifically worded, I’ve had to take a break and walk outside to do the silent yell. You know, when you want to yell out loud but you can’t so you mimic that Van Gogh painting “The Scream” and stand in the stairwell with your mouth open silent screaming thinking to yourself “How, who in the fuck can these faculty members be so stupid?!?!?!”
I read over a proposal a couple of weeks ago and came across the word (are you ready for this?) truthiness.
It’s technically not a word, and according to Google it is, but as a research admin, it’s NOT a word we can use in a formal grant proposal. So I will challenge Google and say that the word bestesest is a word (so stop redlining me you spell check motherfucker!). So when I told the faculty member I was going to revise the proposal he actually had the nerve to ask why. That’s when I think I felt my very first chest pain of my entire life.
Until next time remember, chin up, soldier on and watch your back!
