I am NOT pathetic!!

Wednesday, November 23, 2005

Ok, so I have not yet been with my company for 90 days, so I don't get any vacation or holidays yet. Hence, I am working on Thanksgiving. This is not such a bad thing, since I will be the only one in the office and can basically do whatever the hell I want. I plan on spending the day sorting through files, catching up on emails, and playing games. This will also be the 4th Thanksgiving in a row by myself. Not a big deal- my family lives five and a half hours away in Pennsylvania, and my mom and I both usually have to work on Friday, so it's not really worth the trip just for one day.
With that said, I am getting really tired of the sympathetic looks from my co-workers when I tell them that I'm working. All of them look at me like, "aww, poor thing. She has no one to spend Thanksgiving with." Then they proceed to invite me to their dinner. I then have to explain the whole scenario above, to which they say, "I would just take the day off anyways." Now, they are all either married (dual incomes), or obviously making a lot more money than me, because I can't afford to take an unpaid day off work. Not only that, but I would actually have to take 2 days off, since I sure as hell am not driving 5 1/2 hours for dinner, then turning around and driving 5 1/2 hours back.
So do me a favor, peeps. Next time one of your co-workers is working during a holiday, please don't give them that "I feel so sorry for you" look. They may just have a valid reason.


What the @$%?!!!!

So I signed my lease yesterday!!! By some miracle I passed the credit check. Yeah!!! I move on November 12th, which gives me just enough time to clean through all my shit. I need to stop holding on to everything sentimental.


I'm Moving!!!

Thursday, October 20, 2005

So as of November 15, I will no longer be an Ashburnite :-( . I found a great apartment last night, and the roommates are really great. It sucks that I have to live with other people, but alas, Northern Virginia is a very expensive place to live. The rent is about $100 more than I'm paying now, but it includes all utilities (which I am footing the bill for right now- usually $200-$300 a month), so hopefully I'll be able to improve my grim financial situation. It will be so nice not having to worry about sending in bills throughout the month!!! The other two roommates are computer geeks like me, so I kind of put my foot in my mouth when I told them that I'm one of those pathetic people who have blogs- apparently all of us computer geeks have them. Oh- and it's a gated luxury apartment community, so no more having to worry about what is happening in my parking lot.
Luckily, this change in my life is also helping to distract me from my current romantic situation- which is only slightly less grim than my financial situation. I think what I really need is a change of scenery to get me out of this funk.


Great Quotes

Tuesday, October 18, 2005

So I've been reading He's Just Not That Into You , and there are some REALLY eye-opening quotes in there, especially since the book was written by a man. Some of my favorites so far:

"If I were into you, you would be the bright spot in my horribly busy day. Which would be a day that I would never be too busy to call you."
"For the record, a man who likes you wants to spend time with you. And he'll only settle for talking to you on the phone five times a day when he physically can't get on a plane to come see you."
"He's just not that into you if he's not calling you. Men know how to use the phone."
"You deserve a fucking phone call."


Thank God the 80's are Over.......

Now this is just depressing......


New Job!!

Thursday, October 13, 2005

So I just started at a new hotel last week, and I'm loving it. My commute is less than half of what it was. I am saving so much on gas.
There are a few drawbacks, though. Most importantly, I have to get used to a whole new group of annoying coworkers. At least I have my own office, or rather, I share it with one other person, but it's cool. So far I've only identified 3 really annoying people:

1. Jane- really old crone who's office is right next to mine. At first introductin, she seems like a sweet old lady- almost grandmother-like. She wears those cheap, ugly, Baltimore-like suits from Newport News catalog, and I think I've even seen her wear a holiday pin. But don't let that grandmotherly exterior fool you. She is a ruthless hag. She back-stabs with the sweetest smile on her face. I swear, even after a week and a half there, every time I pass her office on my way back from the water cooler, I have to fight the urge to toss my bottle of water at her. I am convinced that she will melt.

2. Tommy- the questions guy. Every time I send out a report, within 5 minutes he is in my office asking questions. I want to tell him- "hey asshat, I just started here, you've been here for years- how do you not know what these reports mean??!!!!"

3. Can't think of a creative name for this guy- his name is hard enough to pronounce- the "I have something to add" guy. Every staff meeting ends up being 45 minutes too long because of this guy. He always has something to add. He's a department head, so he thinks he has to say something important on every subject, even if they are discussing dog shit. Just want to tell this guy to shut the eff up!


This is scary

Thanks to Stone's worst album covers for this (couldn't stop laughing):

Disturbing Dream

Tuesday, July 19, 2005

So I had this dream last night about my boss. A sexual dream. It was so wierd, especially because I have never thought of him in that way. I mean, he's not a bad looking guy, but he's a little too old for my taste. Anyways, this dream was so vivid and exciting that that I was actually really turned on when I woke up. Now, though, it's really hard to look him in the face here at work.

First Blog

So I am finally blogging, and this is my first time (I'm a blog virgin), so bear with me. I doubt that anyone but my friends will read this, and they already know that I'm full of shit, so hey, this is nothing new.

A little about me:
I am 27 and live in Ashburn, VA (the definition of subburbia), but work in Georgetown. I decided to do this because so many people annoy me every single day, that I feel it's time to start keeping track. My screenname is kind of a joke- I am pretty much the opposite. For those of you that don't know, an Ashburnite is one of those skinny rich subburban wives of doctors, lawyers, etc. They spend all morning at the gym, while their nannies take care of the children they had so that they could keep a tight grasp on their workaholic husbands (or at least on their money). After the gym they drive their Escalades or Navigators to Starbucks, where they get the most complicated low-fat drink possible, then head off to the pool to make the normal-looking women feel insecure. I, obviously, am NOT one of those women. First of all, I am not married to some rich doctor or lawyer. In fact, I am not married at all. Secondly, I don't have the kind of money that would afford me that kind of lifestyle, and even if I did, I would probably still fight the hellish traffic and go to work everyday.

Anyways, that's a little about me. I haven't yet decided whether I will give the details of my sex life, so if anyone at all reads this and has an opinion, please let me know.
