Ranting and Musing

OMG, I am so freaking irritated right now I had to log in here and vent since there's nowhere else to turn! LOL. Of course, none of this will probably make any sense, but whatever.

Ok, so one of my coworkers got tasked yesterday at noon with a background paper for a meeting, due today and she let it sit all day yesterday! Didn't do anything on it. So this morning she's like, oh, can you draft this, I have to run off to a meeting. So I scrambled to pull the info together. THEN! She tells me she needs to leave for another meeting so I will have to stay and finish it up (likely meaning I will be here late). THEN!!! I send it around the building to get everyone's input (remember all this is supposed to be done before the day is) and I get an email saying that the meeting was cancelled YESTERDAY, didn't we hear??? NOOO. Good grief.


Ah. I feel much better, thanks for letting me get that off my chest.

On to more important things. Like Jason Segel's penis. Did you see it?! Like 11 gagillion times in the movie Forgetting Sara Marshall? Yeah. Saw that on Saturday right after that stupendous thunderstorm blew through here. It was entertaining enough - might be a renter. There was a LOT of full frontal nudity, which was simultaneously amusing and cringeworthy. I mean, Jason Segel looks fine, but, you know, you're not used to seeing all that... manliness?... flashed up on the big screen in front of you.

In other news, I'm trying to use the Power of Intention and the Law of Attraction to manifest myself a job in Hawaii. Yep. Still trying. I belong there! I totally do! Why has the universe not conspired to make it happen yet? Am I to just throw caution to the wind, say F-it and move out there? As I've said before, part of me reeeeally wants to do that. I mean, I could be laying on the BEACH right now. In HAWAII. Do I really need to say more?! But of course, then, what next? Probably doesn't look too good for future career prospects if I have a two year gap in my resume where I went off to sun myself. Ha.

Then again, who cares? I'd figure it out, right? My ultimate fulfillment is not within the walls of the State Department, no doubt. Maybe I could go back to school.... learn acupuncture (cue image of student loan debt statement).

Sigh. I just wish I had the ANSWER (hello Universe! Little old me down here! Jesus, Buddha, Martha - what do you want me to do, just tell me, I'll do it! I give my life over - use me. I have no more career ambitions, I just want to mean something. And I don't think it's here.)

Anyhoo! Lovely day to you all! I'm off to get some fresh air - hoping it's not too muggy outside.

Don't you just love exercises in futility? Grrrr! I'm mad for you - that just sucks.

If you move to Hawaii I'm going to ask the universe to make me your new best friend :)
