This Weeks Random Thoughts by The Huntress

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.

The Huntress Novel
Sounds intriguing….just like me.

But wait, theres more! (insert cheese late night advertisement here) I also found, tada…..Maggie Dove, which is also a novel.

Maggie Dove Novel
It’s a novel about Maggie Dove (rocomdojo) and it’s a “mystery” no shock there!

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.

Patty Simcox meme

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.

Yeah like this….everyday, all day….

 

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?!?!?!”

The Scream

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.

Stupid people meme

Until next time remember, chin up, soldier on and watch your back!

The Huntress 915

My life has been a lot like the movie Bridget Jones Diary (the Hispanic version) constant comedic struggles and life lessons learned by way of personal experience. I've survived divorce and online dating debacles, so tag along for the ride and lets laugh together.

  1. The closest book I could find to TBT was the memoir of a a gay former Franciscan priest which, as interesting as it sounds, is not quite my story. So I guess my book title will be “Tom Being Tom” and will feature a ton of beers, some golden dogs, guys in tights and helmets tackling each other, and some select Sunday morning bar prayers. It may not be the best book you’ve ever read, but it will be the best book you’ve ever read about me.

    And not for nothing, but Mrs C tends to be the Patty Simcox of her workplace, for better or for worse. 😉

    1. Oh Pastor Tom Pole Saw, I doubt that the Mrs would be like Baby Kermit, really I doubt it. And, that description of “your” book sounds a lot like Robin Hood Men in Tights….lol.
      Can we say COPY-WRITE INFRINGEMENT? 😉

  2. As far as word misuse goes…. there is a trend, especially among the marketing types, to use nouns as verbs and verbs as nouns. I presume this is to make you appear to be more sophisticated by completely ignoring proper english. I don’t know.

    One that bugs me that is so common that it is probably just me is “invite”. “Invite” is a verb and when you invite someone, they receive and invitation (noun). But, I constantly hear about being sent an invite to whatever.

    “Ask” is a verb isn’t it? But, in project meetings, the upper management all want to know what the ‘ask’ is.

    Then there is “the compute”. It was clearly too much trouble to go ahead and finish the word with the er sound.

    And I am tired of hearing the word “optics” when not referring to the manipulation of light.

    1. I hear ya loud and clear Jason, loud and clear. You know what bugs the living daylights out of me?! I actually know someone that says the word EXCEPT…EPCEPT and pronounces the word height…..HEIGTH!!

      There is no “TH” at the end of height! It’s backwards, so you don’t….wtf…seriously?? It’s a madhouse of mispronunciation and word Jenga here. If it has to be correct, it probably isn’t and it will all fall the hell down like wooden alphabet letters, around my office.

      1. I get bugged by the misuse of further and farther, but I forgive for that as it is kind of obscure.

        Then there is well and good. I get mixed up on this sometimes unless I think about it.

        We have a weird language.

        Quite a stressful day at work here as well. I had to take a break from the chaos.

      2. I can see where further and farther can confuse people. Just like whether and weather although, there, their and they’re are also just as misused as any word. Patience and Patients too, oh man we could do an entire blog post on this grammatical misadventures of our offices, lol.
        I’m sorry to hear your having a stressful day, I hope you had a nice long break to clear your mind.

      3. It has been a rough six months full of major changes and uncertainty. Today they dropped another heavy thing on us and I am thinking about whether it is worth it to continue.

  3. Haha – Thanks for the shout out! Every now and then I Google my name just so I can be horrified by my past, and the first two pages of the search are always links to that Susan Breen book. I should totally sue her for royalties – or at least for messing up my Google searches. I should probably read the book and find out if it’s just an unauthorized biography of my life.

    Glad you Thanksgiving was nearly drama free! Mine involved me getting up and storming out of my mother’s house in a fit of rage after being bullied by my sisters, but that wasn’t surprising given what dipshits they are. I would think by the ages of 48 and 50 they would have matured even a little, but nope! Still jerks!

    1. Oh man, sorry to hear that. You think they would have somewhat matured by now. But, your probs the only mature one at the moment, they’ll mature eventually, like when their in the nursing home trying to race down the hallway with their IV’s in full tow, lol.
      You should see what this woman is doing using your name, hello? Could cash in on some big bucks, and by bucks I mean deer, with a full head of antlers! lol

    1. Yes, yes it is especially when you work with them. Because random stupid people you can walk away from after giving them the bird. But stupid coworkers, that’s an entirely different story, lol.

  4. I once went to a convention where I hoped to meet a writer named Howard Waldrop. Since we have the same last name, and since it’s kind of unusual, I thought we might be related. I mentioned this to a guy who was there and he said, “But you’re not black!”
    It turns out neither is Howard Waldrop so I’m not sure why the guy said that, but even if he were we could still be related.
    Anyway it’s hard to concentrate on anything else while I’m distracted by Charles Bruiser O’Houlihan, who picked a fight with some excellent gravy and clearly won.

  5. Dealing with stupidity is not my forte, either! I want to scream and kick them in the face! I hope you don’t have to have an office party where you’ll be subjected to Baby Kermit’s throat-clearing and niceness. On the bright side, she could be a royal bitch instead. Then you’d have to kill her and you’d spend your life in prison. Take the niceness and the throat-clearing, smile and keep those headphones very near!! 😀

  6. 1) If you ever come across a book called “My Dang Blog”, I will totally sue!
    2) Your cat is adorable.
    3) Does Baby Kermit have Tourette’s or something? I work with a woman who does the same thing and she does–it’s a tic.
    4) Truthiness is NOT a word. I’m an English teacher and I know that for a fact, no matter what Google says.
    Love you as always!

    1. I knew it!!! Truthiness isn’t a word, and now that you’ve confirmed it I’m going to let Google know. Baby Kermit’s “tic” is only the sound of her clearing her damned throat! Which sounds sort of like what swamp frogs sound like, a constant…..gurp, gurp, gurp! Ugh, she’s so annoying and she does this all damned day long!

      I’ll let Charlie know you think he’s adorbs, lol.

      I will keep an eye out for any book titles that may infringe on your brand! I got your back sister 😎

  7. Do a review of The Huntress after you read it—I’m curious how it is!!

    LOVE the pic of your passed out kitty!

    Irritating/stupid coworkers are part of it when you work for a big outfit. I do a lot of smiling and nodding, then turn around to eyeroll and heavily sigh. Luckily, my cubicle-mate and I get along great, so my workspace is still safe. 🙂
