Oh Facebook…

I hate how some people use their Facebook status updates to tell you how much they hate their job… every day they are at work. Have some class. Deal with it or quit.

Oh Seattle…why all the hype?

leave a comment »

According to a Yahoo Real Estate article, Seattle is becoming a 24 hour city?

Really? Where is there a Target open 24 hours a day? Where can you find a decent meal 24 a day that doesn’t cost a small fortune or consists of 6 eggs? A great 24 hour coffee shop other than a crappy drive thru Starbucks?

Or better yet, can a get an amazing hamburger some place in this damn city that doesn’t require a huge ass wait in the smallest building in Ballard with weird hours? Um, no. All of you people who think Dick’s is the best, your taste buds are broken.

If you’re going to write about Seattle, maybe you should live here. I still don’t understand the hype of this city and I’ve lived in this area for 27 years.

Enough already…

Seriously?

Can we quit with all the MAVERICK shit? Do people even know what it is?

Wiki says this:  A maverick is an unbranded range animal, especially a motherless calf. It can also mean a person who thinks independently, a lone dissenter, a non-conformist or rebel.

John McCain? Not a maverick.

Tom Cruise? Not a maverick.

Hockey moms? Not mavericks.

Your mom? Not a maverick.

Alanis Morissette’s Ironic? Not ironic.

Enough already.

The only things I like flaky are croissants

Craigslist… oh how I love and hate you in the same day.

I found a washer and dryer for $100. Sweet. Kevin’s mom could pick it up. All she needed was the people to help load it in her truck, but if not they said they could wait until Friday. Oh yes, they said they would love to help. This morning I sent an email asking for an address and the response I got back was someone already committed to pick them up today. Um, yeah I committed last night to picking them up today, you even agreed to help load them in the truck. What. The. Fuck?

How many flaky people use Craigslist? To fucking many? Like the lady who said we could have a dog and then the day before she was going to come over she called and said she was going to give it to someone else after we had talked to her many many times. Or how about the emails I sent out without a reply at all? Rude.

Yes, we are still without a new dog and or a washer and dryer. I’m turning all Craigslist uses over to Kevin.

Hurry up everything.

Some days, like yesterday, are best when ended with some Guns N’ Roses cranked up and 3/4 of a bottle of red wine. High class, I know.

Today is a day off! It sure is welcome. But, a day off isn’t nearly as fun when it happens to be the first day you are able to start moving. Blah. I’d much rather spend it drinking a few french presses of coffee, thanks.

So this new little house has some interesting things to note:

  • new windows
  • new furnace
  • no garage but a carport
  • no shed
  • no garbage disposal
  • some awesome glass door knobs
  • a very ugly padded toilet seat with embroidered butterflies on the lid
  • a yard that needs a lot of help
  • hardwood floors upstairs
  • a newly finished basement
  • no dishwasher
  • a very trashy house next door
  • no fences on the side yards to keep our dog out of the street
  • no mailbox
  • no blinds
  • overhead lights in the bedrooms!
  • chain link fences

11 days left until vacation! I can has vacation?!?! Heck yes. I need to find a knitting project and a book to take with me. Um, I was just looking at the Whistler website and they said the valley temp was at 32F and the mid mountain temp was 46F? Oh really? Something tells me that is off. Come on snow, I’ll be there soon, hurry up and snow in the village!! Oh hey, and exchange rate, if you just want to keep rising, I’m down with that too. When I was in Victoria in August the exchange rate was pretty even, now it’s at $1.30?! Sweet.

As much as a love all the fun internets jargon, I feel pretty stupid typing it out.. Like “O RLY?”

” What do you want to do for dinner?”

“Not make it.”

“Um. Nice.”

Tonight, I’m making dinner.

Today I met Gluten-Free Girl aka Shauna James Ahern. She shops where I work as well as teaches cooking classes for my co-op. I thought I recognized her from some place and couldn’t place it. As soon as I scanned her employee card I figured it out. I told her I had read her blog and that thought I knew her from somewhere and couldn’t place her. She said that that has been happening more in the recent months. Anyway, she was super nice and I thought I’d share that info with you.
