You know, on the plus side, if you could keep a professional demeanor, and not call undo attention to your sartorial choices (or lack thereof) it might say a lot about how you carry yourself.

On the other hand, it would also likely say you're nuts. :crazy:

Me, I just want June to be over. Then all the crises will be finished and I've got an extra long weekend to recover from the BS of the last 2 months.

I'm even hoping to get back to writing starting in July, after the mega-workstress dies back to normal workstress.

Synonym

It's weird how our jobs seem to have several months of stress, usually in a clump. I find we pretty much coast along from about February until the middle of October. Then the heavy lifting comes into play, literally and figuratively. Long days and lots of pressure.

Sometimes I long for the old days of minimum wage and minimum responsibilities. All I had to worry about was getting there on time and managing to make it through the day. :D

DeleyanLee
06-20-2010, 11:17 PM
My last couple of months have been stressful because my boss (the lady who created the department, FWIW) is leaving on June 30th AND one of our trainees graduates on the same day.

Which means I've got not only all the normal "yes, the trainee has fulfilled all qualifications" scats of paperwork in quad-triplicate of the graduate, but I also have the boss trying to get ready to leave and wrap everything up, along with getting my bearing on the interim boss (who has his own secretary and doesn't really need me), figuring what I'm going to do with 60% of my time after my boss is gone, as well as all the transition stuff with the rest of the staff.

Come July 1, the vast majority of my stress (boss & graduate) will be gone and I'll just have to deal with figuring out what to do with myself all day.

I'm seriously looking forward to the end of the month. Seriously.

ooh, a tea-related convo.

I have discovered, somewhat by accident, that if you have a french press you can use it to make tea, and avoid that slight papery taste you get even with the really good bags. I just rip the bag open into the bottom of the press (mine's a single cup size) and then add the hot water. Steep, press, and serve, free of leaves and no paper taste.

:Coffee:

DeleyanLee

yes, there is. Not that I ever noticed it before... but then someone else mentioned it... and I noticed it... and now....

So, french press, if I can't by non-bagged tea. Which, around here, I can't without having to go way out of my way.

When I was at the U of I there was this great little specialty tea shop in town. I don't remember what it was called anymore. I used to have a card for them lying around, but can't find it anymore.

They had *all* kinds of teas, bags, boxes, etc. It was a little tea-lover's heaven.

Anyway, I think the next time I visit Chicago I shall make my way down (ok, it's not exactly on the way or anything, but still worth it).

Our spring storms have seemed more like summer storms, for the most part. Really heavy and violent, then 10 minutes later you can't tell anything happened except for puddles. Really weird.

But, then, we had a really weird winter too, so it just might be the weird part of the cycle.

Actually, no. I've been gifted with a pretty high tolerance, and I've never passed out, never forgotten things, never even had a hangover. Not that I usually drink to excess, but is has happened, and without consequences (so far) the next morning.

I carried a route, temporarily, for another carrier while he was sick. This was hmm, probably when I was about 32, I think. Definitely in the sticks, much like Laurie's version of hell. :D

The mail carrier's had always been men on that route, women weren't quite as common as they are now so, word got around fairly fast.

One feisty old man, who had a girlfriend or two, (judging from the letters he got) started 'meeting' me at his mailbox--shirtless. Lord. I could have gone without seeing that. He was at least seventy. While in fairly good shape for his age, still...it wasn't the effect he'd hoped for. LOL

Another guy (who dated my mother once-upon-a-time FFS) liked to flirt outrageously too. I always locked the doors and had the windows up as far as possible before I turned the corner to his place.

This area seemed to be overpopulated with horny old men. I'd certainly like to know where the good-looking young ones were. Sheez.

Joan & Edgar Rivers mortgaged their house to produce this movie. It starred Billy Crystal and did the preggers guy bit back in the late 1970's--long before Arnie got a shot at it.

The very end of the movie, Billy goes into labor and the camera pans out of the house and up to the night sky to a bright star. The star suddenly flashes as the words "Oh My God! It's a girl!" rings out in a Charleton Heston-like voice.

Billy got knocked up, FWIW, after he got drunk at a bar and straddled by some barfly atop a pinball machine. We figure it must've been good 'cause we watched the points rack up as the machine flashed and bing'd a lot.

They earned their money back and was able to burn their mortgage before the end of the summer movie season, so it didn't do that bad.

I also remember that they had the host of one of the most popular game show in a cameo explaining how the show was going off the air because of Billy's character making so many of their questions WRONG, they were getting sued by losing contestants for damages.

It had a lot of good bits in it. I didn't think the Arnie movie was quite as good. Billy always could pull of "WTF?!?" better than Arnie could.

I saw the movie because I liked him in Soap, so who knows? And I saw the movie in spite of Joan Rivers (who I've never thought was funny) to boot.

Not just them, of course, as there were a multitude of religions here.... but, by and large, most of them were *more* conservative (and they did *not* come here to practice "religious freedom" - far from it, in fact) than the home churches they had been forced to flee.

Although even those weren't overtly tolerant of sexual things. i think it's more a by-product of Europeans embracing a more modern set of sensibilities more willingly and easily than we do. Not having to deal so much with the religious conservatives we have here helps, too.

My mother used to make all these comments about nude beaches and it never seemed like a big deal to me. I mean wouldn't it get old and become No Big Deal to see nekkid bodies all the time?

If I forget to grab an article from the laundry room, I walk naked through the house to get it. I don't have problems with my four year old running around in nothing but her underwear. My husband does get a little uncomfortable if the girls see him naked, but I've never made a big deal of it. We all have bodies underneath the clothes.

Got an invite to a clothing option camp-out for a long weekend and went (scandalized my family and my ex wanted me to take pictures).

I thought I'd be scandalized. I did. I grew up in a pretty prudish household, after all.

But after about an hour or so, if I'd seen one pair of tits, one fuzz patch or one dong, I'd pretty much seen them all. I wasn't interested in testing or tasting, so I really didn't care.

OTOH, I didn't go naked (about 30% of the camp didn't) because I was in that stage of being preggers that felt fugly AND I wasn't interesting in being tested or tasted and I'd noticed that the dressed people didn't get as many offers.

But, yeah, it wasn't a big deal after a while--though there are some bodies that really should always remained clothed when not in the tub. Just saying.

Ugh. I had a job like that once...gone for half the day. I spent all weekend getting caught up because I didn't have the energy for much when I got home.

Ignore them, as much as possible. You aren't married to them, after all. :)

Your hours are almost as bad as mine. I leave the house about 5:45-6AM and get home about 7PM.

And people wonder why I don't get more done at home.

People can be so stooopid.

By the time you figure in cooking dinner, feeding the family, and getting the kids ready for bed, my pregnant butt is ready to go to sleep as soon as everyone is taken care of.

And it's not like the husband really helps with any of the crap. He gets home at least an hour before me if not more than that. And as soon as everyone eats he plops in front of the TV or goes back outside. It's been pretty irritating for me lately because it can't continue with three kids.

Anywho, done venting. Lovely weather, isn't it? ;)

Studies have proven that brains function better after a mid-day nap.

I think the Spanish culture had it right. Too bad they've decided to follow American stupidity.

God has an AK-47? This is so wrong in so many ways. :D

What I love is the rainbow packaging along with the AK-47.

Seems to me that they're saying that the Almighty is a gay gun-nut.

I didn't even notice the AK-47 at first, so distracted was I by what looked like a ginormous codpiece.

:D

DeleyanLee
06-25-2010, 04:36 PM
I'm too photosensitive to be jealous of a day at the beach. I'd rather be a character in a Stephen King novel then be subjected to a day at the beach.

On top of that, that blasted summer cold finally nailed me to the floor yesterday. The only reason I'm at work is because I seriously WANT my Friday off next week for a longer holiday weekend. It's the closest thing I'm going to get to a vacation this summer and no cold is going to rob me of it. Not again.

Fortunately, there's not much to be done today and both my bosses are out, so I can take my time wading through the muzzle in my head and not have to stress about it.

But you have fun with the munchkin, Bos. It's a glorious day for beach-doing from what I've seen.

milly
06-25-2010, 04:44 PM
ooohhh....I have beach plans too...not with Bos of course...well, unless he wants to hit the Gulf Coast with me and wait for the oil balls to wash ashore :(

slcboston
06-25-2010, 04:54 PM
... um, no.

Our beaches are pristine. I'd like to actually go swimming without donning a hazmat suit.


Otherwise, a trip to the Gulf would be nice. Except it's not as hot and muggy here, just nice beach weather. ... Maybe you ought to come to our beaches instead, Milly.

:D

... it's only... what... a day's drive... a long day's drive at that? what's a little sacrifice for the beach?

:D
