I can't believe he thinks that little of my mental capacity. :(

Oh I see.

I'm thinking boys don't know the difference between fun-trashy and wtf-trashy.

I am DEAD you-all. I don't know I you have this experience, but between the flu, etc, I have had 5 different significantly disabling respiratory illnesses since December 21. I'm sick of being sick.
If I don't die, this will all be a bad memory.

In the meantime, with help, I have over 40 dozen tamalez frozen.

Your life truly ends when you have no more dreams. :D

What's with tasteless pink restaurant tomatoes?

So Grey takes me to lunch, I'm getting cabin fever... nicer sushi restaurant. His Bento comes with a salad.
I know I can get Campari tomatoes at the grocery. So why does this NICE restaurant settle for blah tomatoes? Its such a small additional thing to see to, and would so greatly increase the enjoyment of that part of the dinner...
I don't get it.

When I moved to California from Lubbock, the first farmer's market tomato I ate blew my tastebuds away.
Who knew tomatoes had flavor??? :shock:
YAY!

Why does my dog go through the trash?
Does he expect to discover Moctezuma's hidden treasure?

So, I come home from a camping-ish weekend. Lots of leftovers, and lots of zipplock bags, Tupperware, etc... Feed the critters, toss the containers in the trash.
So the dog rips open everything! Why?

He is 13 years old. Any day now, he may forget to wake up. And he has the equivalent of Methuselah's knowledge... For the past 11 years, I have fed him all the leftovers... why does he think I forgot to feed him?

(shaking head).
I remember him as a young dog. My daughter would jump in the pond and scream for help - he would launch to rescue her...
She would ride her horse (Shorty) just about anywhere, and he would follow.
Now he has no teeth, and his hips bother him (arthritis), and I am tolerant of his need for soft food (missing teeth) and soft bed...

But really, does he HAVE to tear apart the garbage?

AT&T royally screwed up my conversion.
First, AT&T tells me that I can't have a DSL at the office anymore - I have to take U-Verse. Ok, whatever. Its supposed to be faster, but the microsecond diff doesn't mean anything to me.

Then they send out Zippy the wonder slug.
I have agreed to pay extra for a static IP - because our system demands it.
Zippy, who has the personality of a rock, no customer service skills, and the knowledge of a sidewalk - first can't find the line to the office. Won't listen to Grey, who knows where it is.
Then he installs a variable IP. And drills through my antique knotty pine paneling in my office.
Them he cuts the phone lines to the office - and refuses to repair them. Grey finally threatened to do it himself, that's when Zippy finally decided he probably should.
NOTHING works right after Zippy has been here. Grey spends two full days un-fucking the system.

Then Zippy cuts off the U-Verse to my house. Like a person shouldn't be allowed to have more than one account with AT&T?
ITs still not fixed. Going on third day without connection at the house.

Then Zippy shows up AGAIN - to re-install a static IP... Grey chases him off. So Zippy takes a nap in his truck, bills it to his bosses as a service call.

Lazy, stupid, and corrupt!

GRRRRRR.... good thing I wasn't there. I would have done something improvident.

This makes me long for the 1980's when almost no one had cable and nobody knew what they were missing.

I hate it when one of my managers chooses the wrong year and runs reports for 1-2-3 years, grinding my SQL server to a halt and locking the world out.
Wish I had more control over them and was able to block going back more than 2 months.

The Gym,

If your going to go, put in the effort and make it happen, dont whine that its too hard, dont bother me for advice you are not going to follow, just leave me alone!
The stupid shit you do, where did you learn that?
The stupid weight you fling around, what is the point?

Slow and steady wins the race, consistency in diet, training and regimen.

18th day. ATT has escalated the case to engineering.

It worked BEFORE Zippy the wonder tech disconnected me... Furious won't describe what I feel about that waste of oxygen.

Have i told you i hate ATT. If there was an alternative - i'd be there. 24 days no servicez. I unfortunately have 5 accounts. They cant segregate them. Paid 3x my daughters account because they billed ofc use ( without the small biz discount) to her.
Incompetent.
