What’s the best part of the day so far …

1. Remote access not working so I couldn’t work from home
2. Dragging my unshowered ass to work so I could diagnose the problem
3. The problems being even bigger than the fixes I was able to make on my own
4. Noticing that another department didn’t give me a fill price on something
5. Which made us realize they didn’t get the e-mail in the first place
6. Upon further investigation it was a Fifty First Dates error
7. Hoping I don’t get charged for the multi-person investigation
8. Meanwhile missing IMs/e-mails from people who pay me that I can’t jump on
9. And my computer is still borked.

Happy fuckin’ Halloween, bitches.



Annoyance of the day

October 30th, 2014, 12:46 PM by Goddess

If I had to pick just one …

Desperately needing some help and deciding I would rather stuff myself in a toilet and flush myself to China than contact the person I need to contact.

It ain’t MY fault people think I’m a slut because some random guy grabbed ME and kissed ME in a public place.

And by the way — it’s whore, thank you. Sluts don’t back it up.

(You didn’t see the other three who did the same damn thing.)

As usual, I will solve my own damn problem. Since apparently I create so many.



‘You showed up just in time’

“This love is good
This love is bad
This love is a life back from the dead
These hands had to let it go free
And this love came back to me.”

– Taylor Swift, “This Love”

I don’t know what I’m doing. But it works right now. And that’s enough.



Everyone’s everything

October 28th, 2014, 7:12 PM by Goddess

I am really tired of having to care about everyone’s everything. It’s pretty clear they don’t want to know/care about mine.

Maybe I’m just upset that I could have left at 5 today — a rarity in and of itself — but a three-hour meeting ended that dream.

Maybe I’m upset that I just called India (i.e., Comcast) and talked to someone who makes Fifty First Dates seem like the smartest person on earth. (And no they didn’t fix my problem.)

Maybe I’m annoyed that two people are going on vacation tomorrow and I got a lecture that I need to train my people and trust them for me to take a day off. Because THAT isn’t an epic fail in progress.

(Thank you to the guy who tried to slip Goldman BallSachs through my editing filter today. I’d complain but it brought me some perverse joy. It’s the little things.)

I was reminded of the vacation to Paris I was promised that I turned down because, reality. I still haven’t taken a day off. And I’m losing two solid months of vacation on my anniversary date in two weeks.

So no actually I really don’t care about everybody’s everything. Or anybody’s anything. I just want something of my own that I’m not borrowing from someone else or otherwise having to lie to myself about to not think too hard about it.

I really am just out of fucks to give. I would hate everyone and their everything if I could be arsed to feign that much of an interest.

Well I would love to post an actual mind-boggling conversation with FFD.

But I instead showed it to a friend I respect very much and my friend remarked that, the six misspellings that weren’t mine aside, the person had no idea why they were wrong and in the end no clue why I was right.

I just need to have backup through December and all bets will be off …
