Killing Time

I don’t really have a subject for today. Probably just a lot of random babbling.

Yeah, for about 10 minutes of my day today I actually had myself believing that I was pregnant. HHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! I’m about 98% sure i’m wrong. I hope the universe will give me the 2% hope I have in the back of my mind and keep Aunt Flo away.

I feel I must take a moment to comment on Lindsay Lohan as I’m sure every other blogger in America has done. I’ll be the first to say that I don’t buy into the Hollywood bullshit. I get annoyed that she is a huge story much like Paris Hilton, but at LEAST Lindsay has got some talent. Whether anyone likes to admit it or not, La Lohan can act. The movie Georgia Rule was terrible, but she was quite believable in her role and… well, quite fabulous. For the most part, I just find her horribly tragic and an utter waste of talent and life. She comes from a terrible family, a mother who goes out boozing with her and a father who is a felon. I don’t pity her, I mean… you make your own bed, now go lie in it. I do think it is sad.

Summer. WTF. I may as well live on the equator. Oh how I look forward to my car seats burning my ass off and the humidity suffocating me.

Hunger. I refuse to look at myself as being on a diet. It’s a lifestyle change. Does the starvation ever go away? I feel like I may die. Why do I care about being skinny?

Okay. I’ve killed enough time. Rant over!

Office Gossip

So, I just started this amazing new job. I get to do cool marketing stuff, we have in-office happy hours on Fridays, my team is cool and overall, the job couldn’t be going better!

Except for one person who is making me crazy. We’ll call her Bertha and yes… I chose that name on purpose as we all know they kind of woman we think of when we hear the name Bertha. She is THE most annoying, rude person I’ve ever met in my life. She’s worked at the company for, well, forever. She’s a no-it-all. She looks over my shoulder to see what I’m working on, and not only LOOKS but comments on my work as well. She is loud and tries to make jokes that are not funny in any way, shape or form. They come off as rude and insulting.

Today, Bertha finally pushed me over the edge… inadvertently. Bertha happens to be best friends with the wife of a guy, we’ll call him Dick, whom I worked with and sat next to at my old company. Bertha likes to tell Dick everything about me. What I wear, what I work on, etc… Well, through my good friend who still works with Dick, I found out that Bertha told him that I am “struggling” with a project. Excuse the fuck out of me???? BERTHA isn’t even on my team. BERTHA has NO IDEA what I do with my job or why something might be challenging (mind you my whole team struggles with using this particular horrendous marketing database). So WHY does she feel it is necessary to tell Dick about this? Your guess is as good as mine. Lonely? Sheltered? Trying to be cool? Can’t find anything better to talk about but to talk about me? I can guarantee it will be THE last time I ever show any sign of weakness or frustration.

Lesson of the Day: Never speak to Bertha again unless absolutely necessary. Try and be sympathetic to those who have zero social skills.


I’ve ranted before about a radio morning show in the Twin Cities- the Greg & Cheryl show on KS95. Most of the time it is Cheryl pissing me off, but most recently, they struck a couple chords that hit very deeply with me and I may cease listening to their program ever again.

They were discussing Rep. Mark Olson who is currently on trial for assaulting his wife. Radio bitch Ben (that’s right, he does the traffic or some crap and gets their coffee) was ripping him for being “beaten up by a chick”. They think his story is a bunch of crap and were asking for guys to call in if they had ever been hit by a girl before. I was raving mad. Why? Someone I know, who shall remain nameless for protection, was in this exact situation. For over a year he sustained all kinds of physical and emotional abuse from his very troubled girlfriend. She beat him (one time I saw him he had a black eye and bruises all over his body), she cheated on him, she threatened him. Being a MAN, he restrained himself from hitting her because we all know what happens when a man hits a woman. God forbid the possibility of it actually being the other way around. Eventually, he hit her back and broke her nose. She pressed charges. He was put in jail. My point being is that it is NO DIFFERENT for the abuse to go in another direction. We often questioned why he didn’t leave this turbulent relationship- he didn’t leave for all the same reasons that a woman wouldn’t leave an abusive man: threats, fear, and for some ridiculous reason he loved her. After doing his time, he did leave her. He moved away from her and is now finally living a good life free of this abusive tramp bitch. My point in all this? I am fucking livid (excuse my language) that this radio show would even ATTEMPT to poke fun at such a serious situation and very serious allegations on both parts. Shut the fuck up about something you know nothing about.

Now, this isn’t the only other situation Ben the Bitch on KS95 poked fun at. He was ripping on Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck for announcing that they are trying for baby #2. Well, Ben provided his childish, stupid color commentary on why would they announce such a thing- because, if it doesn’t happen for them, Ben Affleck would be a big loser and a failure as a man. ExCUSE me???? BEN- STFU (if you’re unsure what that means, it stands for “shut the fuck up”!!!!!!!! Secondary infertility is VERY common. INFERTILITY is very common!!!! Talk about hitting me in the gut with my most sensitive of topics. My husband and I struggle with infertility EVERY DAY OF OUR LIVES. Being diagnosed as having unexplained infertility, we simply just feel like failures. Ben’s single ass cannot even imagine what it feel like to experience loss and infertility.

Again, I plead. STFU about things you do not know about or cannot even begin to understand. Is there any reason this guy needs to even be making commentary on the show??? Do the traffic and shut the hell up.

Long Overdue Update

Updates, Updates, Updates!!!!

Well, I’m still not pregnant and still not looking to seek treatment. I’m working on practicing The Secret to bring that to me. It brought me and my husband great new jobs, so it will bring a baby to me too!!!

Yup, that’s right, I got a new job! I am now working as a Marketing Specialist for a local credit union. Yeah, it sounds kinda cheesy and small time, but I think I will get more out of working for a small company than I would a big company any day of the week. I really like it so far and like my co-workers too. The work is challenging and actually requires me to use some brain power. FINALLY!!!! Now, to get rid of the atrocious commute…

I also mentioned a new job for my husband as well!!! Yay for us!!! His job… will financially change our lives forever. Besides that, I think he is going to be awesome at it and is really going to love what he’ll be doing- despite the hard work and long hours. It will be worth it in the long run.

One more important occasion that just happened was my sister’s wedding! After being with her fiance and the father of her children for 7 years, they finally tied the knot. In a backyard wedding. On the hottest day of the year (It was 98 degrees- IN THE SHADE). It was a miracle I didn’t melt. ON the other hand… I was honored that she made me her Matron of Honor and that I got to stand up for her. I’m mostly just happy that she is happy. Hopefully it will stay that way.
