Grumpy Smurf



Today has sucked. Look at the poll I just put up, and you'll see about how awesome it's been. And so, I come here to vent. Please don't send me comments about 'looking at the bright side' or wonder if I'm sane. Just let me splay my vast store of anger upon the blog page. Don't worry...this will cheer me up, and I'm guessing that by the weekend, you'll get a right cheerful blog about something awesome that's happened. But...today is Wednesday. Today is crappy.

Numero Uno: I hate people asking for favors when a) I do not know them; b) we are not friends; c) they have done nothing to make me happy or willing to step up to the plate for them. Listen--I know your study is going to expire and you won't be able to save the world with your earth-shattering research. DEAL. I know those documents weren't attached, but that ain't my problem. And I can't make them magically approved. Submit an amendment. I can't help that the person who reviewed your study is out of town and isn't available to click approve. Take a deep breath and stop sending me emails about how you're starting your honors program and need to have approval NOW. The only thing you need right now is oxygen. And at current, that could be in jeopardy if you dial my phone number and start complaining to me.

Next up: YOU CANNOT HIDE FROM A LAWSUIT! When a police officer comes to your mommy's house to give you a notice that you're a total delinquent, you need to man up (woman up?) and pay the money you owe! Don't have your family cover for you. Don't go into hiding and think that it will all go away. Just come to court. Give me my dollars. Stop the madness. Let me sleep peacefully at night.

Last on the list of diatribes: allergies bite the big one. I cannot breathe through my nose. My garbage cans at work and home are starting to look like gerbil nests with all the tissue I've been using. I have itchy eyes and it feels like a bus hit my sinuses. Heaven bless the man who invented allergy pills...but even with them, I still want to lay in my bed and wait until all of the pollen and weeds have been eliminated from the world.

Well hey! Already I feel better. I began writing this blog at the end of work, and I was wiped, but since then I've felt productive, and the stress has slowly melted away. And, to put an optimistic spin on things...this week is more than halfway over! Here's hoping things start looking up.

I totally sympathize on the allergy topic. I thought I was going to die when I took my last final. As you can tell I didn't die, all thanks to my friends generic Zyrtec and Benadryl.

Maybe we'll have an early winter...no?
I hope you get feeling better!
