Could be worse. Does she employ an overload of vocal fry?

No vocal fry but definitely the high rising terminals. What makes it even more infuriating to me is that she only does it with clients or people outside of our office. Just be real with these people you don't need to wish everybody a wonderful day and you don't need to tell them that their work is wonderful and incredible. 

 

And she even does it in small emails within the office. It's really weird and I don't know where she learned it but she needs to unlearn it. For example this is from an email chain about a lunch for another coworker:

 

"Please respond to this email confirming the date and time works for you. Once I receive a confirmation from the office I will proceed with a calendar invite. Feel free to share any ideas or suggestions."

 

Cmon, there are only a few of us this tone is totally inappropriate.

Wait you're over 40.

Birthdays are becoming little funerals.

I went to a Wendy's to get myself a meal but as soon as I walked in I realized it was just basically a private residence that did double duty as a Wendy's. (I don't even know how that's legal from a zoning point of view.) Every time I tried to order, the proprietress said "That is a seasonal item only don't have it available for sale at the present time." But that just meant she didn't have the ingredients in her fridge. Finally I was able to order a Miller Lite, but that is not at all what I went to Wendy's for. I just wanted to complete some kind of transaction and get out of there.

It's better when your income is in the < bracket.

Caught a cold back on Good Friday, what drives me nuts is the older I get, the more cold symptoms linger.

I leave for a crappy conference at a crappy venue tomorrow and won't get home until Thursday. The wine program there sucks, the drink program is nothing to write home about, and the food is meh at best. Bah, fucking, bah.

I attended a bachelor party last night and left my phone at one of the last bars we hit. I did the track-your-phone thing and it looks like it's still there. Of course they are closed today, so I won't be getting it back until tomorrow.

Honestly it has been kind of nice having a day without it. I had forgotten what it's like.

EDIT: And yes, I had gross stripper titties in my face. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

My wife just watched a 16 minute series of "highlights" from The Newsroom. Apparently every memorable line in that show was delivered at a shout.




Thank god that got cancelled.

My home mortgage interest deduction took a nose dive (have been living in my co-op for ten years), and I owe Formosa suit money to the feds and DC. censored.gif Time to contact Spoo about consignment.
