I started the year with one resolution….to embrace my inner-bitch. I definitely stuck to my guns on this one and it is the perfect year to quit smoking. I am usually a door mat and I let them keep loading work on me like the pack mule that I am, but I’m not taking it anymore. The teenage me would have never put up with this crap, and at what point did that change? I really don’t know where I lost myself but I’m coming back, mouth and all. The people I work with (not you C.G. my partner in crime) don’t know what to make of me. A co worker tonight text me because something had to be wrong with me for me to be acting this way. Yes I’m short, I just quit smoking and 30% of the calls I take all day are from really stupid people, and nobody else wants to pick up the phone. Who wouldn’t be short? This same co worker is the first to say “oh somebody give her a cigarette” I work with really loving and supportive people, don’t ya think? Funny thing is, I am still biting my tongue for now. Rude awakening, coming soon to an optical lab near you.
On a lighter note I tried another new dog treat recipe tonight. This one the dogs really went cuckoo for cocoa puffs over. The gross one they would like, doesn’t that figure. The recipe called for 1lb of beef liver liquified. I’m not gonna lie, I felt a little bit like Hannibal Lecter only I’m sure he wouldn’t make faces at the raw liver or say eew out loud. The smell, well at least with liver and onions the onions made it smell tasty. I will make it again though, since it made them so happy.
There is contraversy already with the new christmas list. My daughter insists that she “needs” the walking dead merchandise, I keep telling her she “wants” it. We both agree that the dvds fall under the something to watch catagory, we’ll see. Maybe I’ll give that one to my brother, but she needs a new bow too and my brother is way better at the sportsman stuff. I’ll give him two options and I’ll start checking Amazon regularly for the dvds. I do better with triggers than with strings so I have no idea what to even look for.
Oh and today at lunch I didn’t “have” to read anything, so I started Anne of Green Gables on the kindle. I haven’t read it since I was in the fifth grade, back when we lived with the dinosaurs and all. I came across a word that I’m pretty sure a modern author would never use in the same context. “Well, this is a pretty piece of business!” ejaculated Marilla. My mind wasn’t in the gutter when I read it the first time, I did do a serious double take today. A different time, a different way to say things and a different way to show our immaturity, well mine anyway. I guess now I’m immature and a bitch, look out world, get ready to have a giggle.
