Highlights and Observations of the Day (Tuesday)...


1) Woke up with a horrendous headache again. I swear I have a brain tumor...

2) Threw together a resume at 7:00 this morning because my old company insists they need it for HR purposes if I want to subcontract for them.

3) Spent the majority of the day searching fruitlessly for my social security card, which my company says they need me to bring with me tomorrow for payroll purposes. Haven't found it. [sigh]

4) Figured I'd tell the bastards I worked for them for 9 years. They shouldn't need my social security card.

5) Watched Hannah walk around all day in a floral print onesie (too small), a plaid skort, and red socks pulled all the way up to her knees. Freaky kid.

6) Was on the phone with a friend who "witnessed" Hannah freaking out because I wouldn't let her put on her sweatpants she so desperately needed to put on. (She would've had a heat stroke.) The tantrums are worse when they involve button-down shirts. I swear.

7) Received a phone call from the bank, wanting to set up closing for our kitchen loan. Thank you freakin' god! Apparently, I won't be cooking for eternity on our grill, as I was starting to suspect.

8) Found out our house was appraised at $70,000 more than what we originally paid for it. Beyond needing it for the loan, it's nice to know that all of the hard work we (OK... Steve) has put into fixing up this Partridge Family reject hasn't gone unnoticed.

9) Went grocery shopping and wondered how it is that Steve can spend (literally) 10 minutes trying to choose just the right pair of tweezers. Guys, there weren't that many there to choose from. Jesus.

10) Was annoyed Steve paid $5.67 for a pair of tweezers when there was a perfectly good pair there for $1.54.

11) Figured it was his money so why the hell should I care.

12) Watched Rock Star: INXS only because Dave Navarro was wearing tight black leather pants and actually jammed with the contestants tonight. I swear to god, I orgasmed. [heavy sigh]

13) Threw Snakey in the trash. So far, no one has noticed.

1) I'm shocked that Hannah wore an outfit today that didn't have buttons.

2) LOL at your description of your house. (((Partridge Family)))

3) RIP Snakey. Hope nobody asks for Snakey tomorrow. ;)

Alien said...

1) Me too. But I wasn't arguing. She walked up to me this moring asking me to put on the onesie, and I (quickly) threw it on her, not even caring that actually snapping the WAY too small article of clothing was going to give her permanent camel toe for the day.

2) What? It IS just like that.

3)I actually feel kind of bad for Snakey. I'd dig him out of the trash, but he's currently under some old coffee grounds, tied up in a bag, and out on the curb for pick up in the morning. (((Snakey)))

You know some people buy $20 tweezers. And some don't even own a pair (me).

I hope Snakey finds a new loving family at the dump.

count me in the $20+ tweezer crowd...and I get them at a knife shop. Last pair dh ruined on goodness knows what but the ends are bent at the very tip so they don't grab thin hairs at all...grrrr....
next pair I'm hiding from him!
Guess I'm the only one not feeling sorry for torn/sticky Snakey...;-)
GGGOOOOOOOO kitchen remodel!!!

I sweardagawd I'd leave my dh for one night with that man!!! I think he could take me places I've never been. LOL.

EE said...

Your "friend" was actually pleased to know that not just HER kid throws freaksihly silly temper tantrums over completely irrelevant things. LMAO!

(((Partridge Family reject house)))

Brandy said...

Yum... Dave Navarro. I'm with ya on that one.

tj said...

hey Alien...I forgot to suggest this...did your old paystubs have your ssn # on them? If so just bring in one of those as "proof"...I'd never be able to find my actual ssc either...
cheers,
Terrie

Alien said...

Glad to see I'm not the only one who enjoys Dave the Eye Candy...

Terrie, it's an IRS thing. And it turns out I need one with my married name on it, so I have to go to the social security office tomorrow with a buttload of paperwork to get one. Yay. *sigh*
