so i haven't done a prune of the week post since may. i guess i haven't had that many things to rant about due to my general jolly disposition.
yeah, that's about to come to an end.
ya'll ready for a good old fashioned rant?
-i just got home from tanning because my "office white" skin has got to get a little color prior to my aruba trip next week. so i'm at the salon counter and the bad highlights salon girl looks at me and asks if i wanted to buy lotion. "no thanks" i said "i'm fine". she then straight faced looks at me and responds, "if you don't buy lotion you will get skin cancer". WTF? how do you say something like that?!??! i'm already hypersensitive to the topic and i did not need some bimbo making idle threats. no thanks tanning salon.
-after work today i also got a trusty oil change. where i got in a friendly disagreement with the attendant who told me that i needed a new air conditioner filter. i passed stating that i only have 10100 miles on my car and my owners manual states that i don't need one until 15000 miles and i would look into purchasing one on my next oil change. but he didn't let up, telling me that my owners manual was wrong and that i just didn't know better. no thanks dude.
-i have to pack enough clothes for over a week while throwing a wedding into the mix, i think this may be impossible.
-i need to do 273 loads of laundry and clean my entire apartment before i leave and instead of doing so i'm sitting on my deck stressing out and typing this little post.
-since my vegan 30 days is officially over today (yay me! see ya extra lbs!), i am going to try to ween myself back on to "normal" food and off of the random ciggies. the fact that i was really good about what i was eating but felt the urge to smoke again to stop myself from cheating during this month was horrible. no thanks smoking.
-i must admit that i am enjoying facebook even though at times i think it's the devil's playground - much like my freshman year dorm room - but that's another story. i'm asking why must the targeted advertising on the site hit so close to home? my two favorite ads from today - "are you 28 and looking to stay slim?" and "almost 30 and wondering if you are ever going to find a man?". GAH!!! are you there god, it's me, alexa, please, pretty pretty please with a cherry on top stop these ads from gracing my computer screen. no thanks reminders.
-if i hear one more of my guy or girl friends bitch about hating being single but then say they "aren't ready for a girlfriend/boyfriend" i am going to promptly kick them in the shins.
-people that are sexist
-when i got to work this morning and unpacked my laptop bag i noticed that the remote control to my living room tv was in the bag. i chuckled, set the remote on my desk and went about my business. well you can guess where the remote is - still on my desk. bummer for me because i can't turn on my dish cable without the specific remote. no thanks tv.
-i have a really bad eye prescription. so i just ordered new contacts last week and for a years supply (1 pair per quarter) the grand total is $325!!! and that is after insurance. c-ya extra vacation money.
i have promptly decided that today is just one of those days and i will listen to monica over and over again while ignoring all my phone calls.
END RANT - well that was just exhausting.
