Humpday Confessions #16

It's the first day of vacation!!!!!  EEEEEEEEKKKKKKKKKKKKK!!!!!!!!!  I can't even handle myself right now.

Vodka and Soda


-Last Wednesday after posting my confessions, a million things irritated me and I had to start this post because I needed somewhere to rant where people would understand.  My coworkers don't get me like my Gentle Readers do.

-We had a cold snap last Wednesday morning and it really should have been a rest day, but cool days DEMAND long runs.  I mean, after suffering those 90+ temp runs, to NOT run on a low-70s day seems like a sin.  People were also trying to predict the winter weather from the few days of "cold" that we got.  Really people?

-I have been deferring/delegating work.  I'm under the 2 month mark and my coworkers really need to learn all my secrets.  I think they mostly have it, but I know there are somethings that haven't been covered.  My rule now is if I can't handle it from sitting at my desk, I'm not interested.  YAY for showing up for work!

-I hate having to work with other departments on certain issues.  I feel like it involves way too much work.  I'd rather just do everything myself and take on too much work than have to involve other people who don't know their heads from their asses.

-I found a fun list about how to convert from military to civilian life and the transition might be difficult.  Especially when Mr. Mystery says things to me like, "Wait one," and I reply, "No, you standby."  #youcanleavethemilitarybutthemilitaryneverleavesyou

-I tried a life hack to keep your pbj sammich from getting soggy.  Put peanut butter on both pieces of bread then add the jelly.  Tada no more soggy bread when you eat your sammich for lunch.  IT WORKS!!!

-When I can accomplish finding someone at work without leaving my desk by making a single phone call when someone else couldn't, I feel like a boss.  NBD.

-I was still commenting on last week's confessions posts on Monday.  I really appreciate when link-up-ers link their actual confessions post and not just their main blog URL.  I get it, but come on.. if I like your one post, I know how to find the rest of your posts.  And if you're posting a what you wore/NOT confessions post, you're a dirty pirate hooker and I hate you for wasting my life on your blog (ok, I feel a little strongly about this one).. and if your blog is private, WHYYYYY do you do linkups?  Get it together people!

-Despite only having to work 2 days this week, it took a very long time to get to Wednesday.  Even Mr. Mystery agreed.  I'll be excited when it's October and this long-distance relationship will just be a relationship.

-The realtor didn't get some information to me that she said she would send last Thursday.  The landlord wanted us to take over the electric bill asap and she said she would get us the info on how to do that and where to send the deposit checks to, yet still nothing from her.  I'm hoping that she isn't the only one who manages our property and we don't have to deal with her after we get moved in because she is pissing me off in the worst way.  I wish I had the contact info for the landlord and I'd just call and deal with him myself instead of getting the run around from this lady who can't seem to get her head out of her ass.  My fear is that she is telling the landlord it's our fault that it's not been fixed and it's actually not since I have no idea who the electric company even is.. or any of the utility companies for that matter.  I did at least figure out the deposit stuffs without her assistance.

-That same realtor left me a voicemail that I had to listen to FIVE times to be able to comprehend her phone number and email address.  FIVE TIMES, Gentle Readers.  Now I talk pretty fast, so often times I've had people need me to repeat things (Ms. Motivator), so I comprehend fast talkin' pretty good.  I do NOT get speeding up to say your phone number and email when you are asking me to get back in contact with you, because I'm less likely to call you back if I can't understand your number because you said it as fast as you possibly could AND THEN you blurt out your email address and hang up.  Seriously?  It's unprofessional and it makes me rage.  I'm pretty sure that if I have to deal with her for much longer, I may actually call her out on it.

-I bought a whole bunch of new bras a few weeks ago and it's quite difficult to get used to the new ones after wearing the old ones for so long.  Also, push up bras are magical.. except for when I bend over and the girls just forget their place.  Stay in your holder, bolders.

-Since seeing Little Shop of Horrors last week, I can't stop singing the soundtrack.  I wanna perform in another musical, it was just too much fun. 

-Printing out my boarding passes at work yesterday made me want to just leave work.  Not that being at home makes the time pass faster, but it's the principle of not being at work.

-I don't paint my nails often, but when I do, I make sure it's "out of regs" and when I'm off work for at least 3-5 days.  Thus, I felt obligated to get my nails did since I am going to be on leave for 2 weeks. 

-$5 off coupons to Red Robin makes me feel like I need to go there.  They sure do know how to sucker me.  That's pretty much 1/2 my bill, so it's like 50% off.  I'll take it.

-I'm so used to Teh MD Adult Roomie getting all the packages now that I didn't even notice on Monday that I had a package!  Meri's new harness finally arrived!  It's not exactly what I wanted since it doesn't have 2 clips, but it will have to do since it's so pretty.

-Having only ever heard great things about JetBlue, I'm pretty hyped for my flights from DC to CA and SC to DC.  I can't even describe how thrilled I was to see that they were as cheap as or cheaper than United/Delta.  YAY for yet another loyality points/miles account.

-I packed workout clothes and my hydration belt.  It might be a futile effort, but dammit, the effort is there!

-I tried to dye the underside of my hair blue last night.  It failed.  I probably should have listened to lady who said to bleach it first, but ain't nobody got time for that.  It was gonna be so pretty too.


-Grand finale:


  1. Yay for vacation! We are just hitting our SUPER busy time at work. So, I am totally jealous. ;)

    Ugh, I cannot stand when "professionals" do not act professionally. That is one of my biggest pet peeves. If you are going to work in a customer service industry ... learn customer service!

  2. I've been having the same issue about link ups that actually lead to a totally different post as opposed to the one we're supposed to be linking up for! And those that privatize their blogs, I can't even deal ... Enjoy your vacation :)

  3. wait, people actually link up private blogs? that makes zero sense, why would you even have a private blog to begin with? isn't that what diaries are for? I'm sorry your blue dye didn't work out, I bet it was gonna be super cute.

  4. The linkup thing bugs me too, if you are talking about a specific post/topic then link to THAT. Don't make me search around for it, or I will probably just leave (I imagine this is done by the kind of people who look ONLY at stats).

    And boo crazy realtor. In my experience they are usually great in the beginning and terrible once we got INTO the house...maybe your experience will be the opposite!

  5. Hahaha - I totally feel your pain of the push up bra and things slipping. Stay in your holder boulder made me laugh out loud!

  6. Yay for vacation and being able to paint your nails pretty! I hated when I was working for Safeway and the only nail polish cover that was acceptable was nude. I rebelled and constantly when in with neon colored fingernails, and I also got in trouble rather often.
    How annoying about the unprofessional realtor! Good luck with that situation, yikes.

  7. Hooray for vacation! Hope you have a super fab time! I hate it so much when people post their private blogs or their private instagram accts. Seriously, you put your user name on a list and want people to follow you but it's private? Sorry, but I won't bother.

  8. yay for vacation! i need one badly. and you made me laugh about bloggers who link up but don't have a confession're not the only blogger who said that ;)

    thanks for linking up!
