Off the Blog

Things are crazy in my life right now. Good and bad.

Going on a blogging sebattical.

I leave you with the immortal words of Sarah Connor: "No one is ever safe!"

Holla.

Out Damn Spot

I have a lot on my mind, havn't been blogging much, just trying to get through the day to day. I have a lot to do in the next three days before I head to NC for the week, then off to Saint Thomas. I am so excited for Saint Thomas I could squeal. And have a time or two.

My roommate was in the hospital for a few days -- she'll be fine, she just can't eat all the shit she loves to eat, and has to keep her blood sugar under control. How evil am I though? When she called and told me, I had not been at home the night before and was leaving my friend's house. The first thing I thought was, "How does this effect her moving out August First like I told her."

I really have let things go to far with her from day one. I anticipate problems getting her out of here. And I'm so sick and angered by the fact that her boyfriend still lives here. After all the discussions, all the leeway that I've given them, am I supposed to just accept this illusion that he does not? I told her I wanted him to give a third of the electric bill for the last few months. She said, "Yes, I've said that too," since it's summer and all and the bills will be high with two air conditioners running...one running when neither of us are even here! I should have said a third of the rent and utilities from the moment it was clear he was a fucking resident up in this piece. I'm too easy. I have been such a pussy during this whole time. How come I can push a grown man to the ground in Times Square and proceed to lecture him while on the ground regarding subway etiquitte, but I feel like I have to tip toe around this bitch. Working together has something to do with it. She knows the real deal, and the deal the big shots at work are going to say is not entirely true, and she could, if she wanted to, get hateful around that. Anyway, I am the giver in the expression "give someone an inch and they'll take a mile." The level of resentment I feel is overwhelming. When I hear them, it makes me want to murder them both. I have learned a lesson at the expense of everything in my life, including my looks...my quality of life has suffered from trying to do something nice for someone in November. Look where it got me. I need to have another talk with her now that she's out of the hospital. Reinforce August 1 as her move out date, and no "is that realistic?" thoughtfulness, just "Be out by August 1." I'll probably lose money on this. Rent, electric will be disregarded if she knows she's leaving. Lord knows I've been stiffed already a time or two on things. Meanwhile it is going to cost me a million bucks to move that I don't have...I'll figure that out though.

The bedbug thing in the trash room has me so freaked out and there's nothing really that can be done at this point. Even though they are not here, knowing they are in the building is going to make me crazy. I have to stave them off until I move.

In positive news, I had a doctor's visit today and it made me feel much better. Health concerns I have had are not much concern now.

By the way, anybody want two cats?

Another Bed Bug Scare!!!

This morning I was taking the trash down and there were some mattresses in the trash area marked: "DO NOT TOUCH! BEDBUGS!" Terrifying. I am moving soon but still...I don't want to get an infestation and then carry the suckers with me. I will abandon everything I own if that happens. My roommate says she thinks this is mostly happening in the west building (we're on the east) but still, hitting a little too close to home. It's always something.

She was in the hospital over the weekend, btw. She'll be fine, but she's got to stop eating everything she loves and take her blood sugar seriously. She could have died.

Regarding my big plans

I just run my mouth too damn much. I mean, I did have to tell the roommate, as a courtesy to her (and to protect myself by ensuring she's out in time for me to get everything done and close up shop), but now there could be a stink, given she's probably told this side of the state line. It's all very political and has to be played a certain way. There are others being denied similar, although not exact, requests. And some of those people probably know everything that's going on...just like I do. So my only hope is they ain't gonna be haters and try to mess this up for me. But what can you do, I'm just moving forward is all I know.

Feed Readers

No one ever answers my questions, maybe because no one's out there, but I ask anyway: How do you read this blog?

Like Danity Kane and Miley Cyrus,

I have to admit I do like the LOLcats.

Your uckinfugga uglyuga and I'm over ugaooya

Some favorite bitch tracks:

how to read - mecca

Tyler Moore, Mary - Relentlessly Cunty -

Queenie - Ethyl Meatplow
(That's the original Queenie, of course, not the club mix...witch is honestly for the best. One of my all time favorite songs right there. EAT IT!)

He's right about this too.

In additional Bloomberg news, Mike said the other day he would ban bicycles on the subway. I have been saying this for years.

”I don't run the subway system, I don't run the MTA, but if I did - if I had total power - I guess I'd say it's too crowded for bikes," the mayor said.”


Of course, some bike advocacy group spokesperson says,

”Without that access, it would be a huge blow to biking in the city."


Well here’s a novel idea. You have a bicycle with you, so RIDE YOUR DAMN BICYCLE.

During the primaries and now the full on presidential campaigning

there is lots of talk about cheapening the exploding cost of gas, and a quick measure being tauted is to suspend the gas tax.

But I think ole Mike Bloomberg is right:

"Reducing taxes on energy consumption is the wrong way to go. We should be raising taxes on energy consumption dramatically because it's the only way you're going to force people to use less."


And everyone needs to be using less energy. Bloomberg is also an advocate for nuclear power, which, again, he’s right.

BOMBS AWAY

Today I stayed a little late at work and decided upon leaving that I would go downtown for a drink or six. Then, right there on 18th Street and 7th Avenue, a pigeon shit ON MY HEAD.

I took this as a sign and came home.

I hear the Japanese believe it's good luck when a bird shits on you. But still.

"New York City ain't no kind of place for a country girl with a friendly face..."

At the end of the Sex and the City movie, Kevondrala said to me, “See? Now are you sure you want to leave?” Because my experience in New York City so closely mirrors the lifestyle of Carrie Bradshaw and Samantha Jones, see.

Anyway, several times in the last few weeks the Sex and the City episode, in which Carrie stupidly declines to allow the hottest man who has ever appeared on the show to further pursue her because he says something negative about New York, has come up. Her reason in the episode is because she is in a “relationship” with New York City, and “nobody talks shit about my boyfriend”.

So B mentioned the approaching departure from New York as my “saying goodbye to my lover” referencing that show. And I said, “Well, honestly it’s been an abusive relationship.” This boyfriend hits me sometimes. He also takes all my money for himself. And he’s frankly kind of stinky a lot of the time, and a big fat liar. But I’ve stayed this long because I love him…but he ain’t gonna change. ;)

Got one of your typical Nigerian Bank Scam emails

this morning, written in ALL CAPS, and funny in the usual, played out way they are. Anyway, this is a funny line from it:

I ONLY GOT YOUR CONTACT INFORMATION FROM MY SECRETARY WHO OPERATES COMPUTER,WITH BELIEVE IN GOD THAT YOU WILL NEVER LET ME DOWN IN THIS BUSINESS,CONSIDERING MY POSITION AS A PUBLIC SERVANT


Particularly, the word "only", "secretary who operates computer", "believe in God" (cause you know He's gonna make this transaction a success on all ends), and "public servant" because that's what bank employees (his stated position) are, right?

Give It 2 Me

The video for "Give It 2 Me", Madonna's new single, is out on Yahoo Music.



I love the song. And I am so hot for Pharell, you have no idea.

Yogurt: The Official Food of Women

I am so annoyed by those commercials with the two women going through long lists of "this yogurt is better than ..."

Funny:


Obama vs. McCain

It's now officially on, and just a few months to go before the presidential election. Obama FTW.

Do you ever feel like

you have no idea what you're doing and you are just faking it at your job?

Sex and the City

I saw Sex and the City tonight and thought it was really good. If you are a fan of the show, you'll like the movie. My review is forthcoming. For my trip to St. Thomas in July, I want a hat like Samantha's:



I am 100% serious. Where would one find a hat like this?
