Wedding Woes

random things i do not like

please feel free to add your own.

-- when i am carrying something like a giant box, someone is standing in my way, i say "excuse me, please!" and this person moves an inch/just sucks it in.  okay, i am just going to hit you with this box.

-- i do not know what the walls in this apt are made of, but it it impossible to get a nail in the wall without a maximum of dust.  it's like "dune" every time i want to hang a picture.

-- (i blame cw for this one) there is a kind of ramen that i like, and it is diddlyfarking impossible to find.  or i could order a case of 40 from amazon for $50.

    -- Apparently someone's kid visited today.  There is a poo filled diaper in the garbage can.  I can smell it the moment I enter the restroom.  This is why I carry old newspaper bags and target bags in my diaper bag.  No one wants to smell that.  Ever.

    -- My eye was clear Saturday and Sunday.  Today, janked up again.  Now I need to pay $60 to see a specialist.  Do not like.

    -- No alcoholic drinks allowed at work from 8:30-5:30.  

    -- H is downtown and has refused to come pick me up and steal me for the rest of the afternoon.  He's "busy" and "working."  But I think that's bullshish.

    #1 This happened to me at the grocery story. I was big and round and trying to make my through a crowded aisle. One lady scooted out of the way as best she could, the other, with her back to me, said "uh huh" and scooted her cart a smidgen. Actually, she just touched the cart and that was scoot enough for her. The first lady rolled her eyes, I laughed and barrelled through using my belly to push #2 lady's cart into the shelves. My friend was behind me laughing her arse off.

    I hate when people do that with carts.  Their effing cart will be in the middle of the damn aisle and when I say excuse me, they angle it toward the shelf.  Uh, no.  Not helping.  I usually repeat myself until they actually clear a path.

    ---I cannot find pumpkin anywhere. I may have to buy a pallet of it.  Yes, pallet.

    ---I want to shop for a purse, but don't want to spend more than $100.  Okay scratch that, I have a hard time JUSTIFYING spending more than $100.

    ---Brother and his gf of 7+ years broke up.  DO.NOT.LIKE.

    -- having to breath through my mouth. I feel like I should be wearing camo and talking to my sister wives.

    -- my cw not respecting my boundaries. I have asked him to stop talking about a certain topic (personal) three times now. It is getting to the point where I am just going to have to deal with my reaction to his statements, as it is clear he is going to continue to persist.

    -- that the realtor took pics of our house and is going to put them on the interwebz. Hello, burglars, here is our address and a preview of all the things you may find inside.

    - There's a poster on the craft board who is an insufferable AW. I want to make a post telling people to stop responding to her posts, but then I'll just look like a B.

    - When friends tell you they're having a "party" and you arrive and it's you, them, and one other couple that you don't know. Oh, and that other couple doesn't drink and doesn't contribute to conversation.

    - That it's supposed to be 95 degrees here today. Why did I move here, then? 

    - That my eyeballs are not responding well to the glasses, and the glasses lady said to wait 10 days, then they'll fix 'em. 

    - That someone in my immediate neighborhood has the same fan/light combo we have in our bedroom, and they use it at crazy-ass times of day. Noon-four pm? Nothing. 3:30 in the morning? Light on, fan on high. WTF. I've started pointing the remote out the window whenever I use it.

    H says this every. time. the thing goes off. "OOOOH, it's the ghosts!"<div>
    </div><div>We used to have wonky wiring in the bathroom light switch, too, and that would go on randomly. So for a while, we had all sorts of lights going on and off. We should have called TAPS. Especially because Steve was still investigating then.</div>

    we are having a ghost wiring issue.  whenever the air condition clicks on or off, the lamp in the baby's room flashes.  this is bad:
    1) we don't want a giant flash in the middle of the night to wake up the baby
    2) what the what is that, anyway?

    if the electrician doesn't come by today, we are going to have to make the Angry Calls, and i hate doing those at work.

    additionally, they need to fix the blinds, and i am not looking forward to having to move all the furniture so that they can access them and fix them adequately-poorly.

    o face, My mom scarfed up oodles of cans of pumpkin when she saw it and gave sis and I 3 cans.  She said we'd thank her later.  We'll see, but butternut squash is a decent substitute.

    - I do not like that the landscapers haven't started yet.
    - I do not like that MIL is coming this weekend.  The time TBD on whether or not the Brown's are on TV.
