Just some random things to which I can only respond...seriously? (It's either that or wtf, but I try to use better language here than I do in real life...seriously.)
I'm driving on a bridge, which tends to get backed up as people refuse to adhere to normal stop sign rules. But I'm waiting patiently in my left lane to eventually make my left turn. There's an ambulance trying to get through. The guy on the right turns in a way so that I can move aside for the ambulance. All the cars behind the ambulance refuse to let me back in!!
Last Saturday, it was 90 plus degrees and we were sweating it out at Disneyland. This Saturday, my sister is hosting what was supposed to be a pool party. It's now raining and icky and 60 degrees.
In an online community of moms, we were asked what kind of things could corporations do at our children's schools to earn our good will. One mother answered, "put God back in the schools." I was unaware that God was taking corporate sponsorships.
I can't get into details here, but there are people interfering with KIPP LA Prep who have no business doing so. Instead of letting the people who are there every day make important decisions which affect me and my family, they're letting things happen that have no business happening. Do NOT mess with my daughter's education! I'm prepping to assume a battle position.
My cellmate - I mean, cube neighbor - is one of the most annoying people on Earth. He's not a bad person in a mean way, but he's so dreadfully monotonous - in his tone, in what he says - he makes me want to hurl things. He says coolio (and I have since dubbed him as such), he voted for Archuleta, he bounces when he walks, he gives oh-so-helpful advice, like water being more replenishing than soda. He wants to go back in time and vote for Reagan ('cuz you know, then Reagan may have won). After being here three (3!) months, he was having people hang up and call back when they wanted to leave a voice mail because he didn't know how to transfer them. I have heard every. single. detail of his "surprise" proposal to his girlfriend at Disneyland. I am hearing every. single. detail. of the planning of the wedding. I have started calling people desperately, saying "talk to me" just to try and not hear the details. (If you get such a call, please work with me here. I'm a single mom; I can't go to jail.) I confess, my hatred for him is beyond what's necessary to the situation, but I just don't know how to stop.
People who make a lot more money than me (and have higher degrees of education, too) do not know the proper use of "advice" and "advise." And the possessives (its v. it's)? Fugeddaboutit. (Not my lawyers, btw.)
Can an atheist say TGIF? Well, I'm saying it!! And TG Memorial Day weekend, too. Clearly, I'm in need of a little downtime. Hope you all find great gas deals, and are enjoying better weather!
