what's worse than Christine in the morning?

ans: Christine in the morning when it's below freezing.

this morning is the first freeze here in Lubbsuck. i hate it. i want to hibernate. as i walk in to work, there is a nice little congregation of supervisors. mine says, 'how're you, Christine?' in his usual, chipper tone. my reply? "i hate the cold." it doesn't exactly answer the question directly, but i think it gives a good idea as to what the answer may have been.

so i keep walking (towards the coffee pot, obviously) when another supervisor asks me a question about the last minute work he had approved the night before. of course, my response was a bitter, hateful one. he proceeds to tell me thank you. i ignore him completely and just mutter profanities under my breath instead. why should i say, 'you're welcome' when i don't mean it? i say we should all be more honest. it is the best policy, you know.

everyone knows i'm doing the Biggest Loser challenge here at work which could explain all the ugly looks when i get caught sneaking in bags of hamburgers and burritos. i'm wondering the best way to bring in donuts later...

so i'm having a garage sale this weekend. i'm simplifying my life. everything's going but the TV, the computers, the books, the microwave, and the weasel. all else is just more to dust and less room for Simon to run around. whatever doesn't sell on Saturday is getting donated via Freecycle or something.

i'm feeling the urge for a change in my life. last time i felt this way, i went to school and got my degree. i don't know what i'm going to do this time. my bitter mood right now is not the best time to make a decision regarding my future.

i do want to buy myself a nice Christmas present. i am trying to decide between a Wii or a Blu Ray player. a Wii would prob encourage my loser friends to hang out at my place more so that's a negative. a Blu Ray might, but it's less likely. well i still have some time to decide. good deals on sales might influence my decision, too.

You should join the Navy.

Seriously, go with the Wii. Blu Ray is the most devious scheme for separating people from the money ever devised by the corporate world. You get to spend buy an expensive player, then you get to buy movies for $40 that don't look any different unless you have a super fancy TV, and then you can't watch the new movies anywhere but on your cool new Blu Ray player. The one upside is your friends won't be able to borrow and watch your movies.

ah, well i've pretty much decided on the Wii anyway. although the Blu Ray is in the near future, too. i need to stop showering or something in order to keep my friends away, though.

you should buy a ticket to vegas, gather all that gaRAGE sale loot and life savings, and bet it all on 11.
