Day 25

 

Day 25 My biggest pet peeve that has nothing to do with blogging, being online, computers or anything else related to the Internet is…

Drivers. They drive me CRAZY. Those that drive in the fast lane at 10-15mph SLOWER than the posted speed. Drivers that hesitate at the green light. There are so many other cars behind you that want to get through too! PAY ATTENTION! Drivers that are clearly distracted either by their phone or their kids yelling at each other in the back seat.

Welcome to my Randomness XVIII

Friday all I did was drive.

At least that’s what it felt like: drive to work, drive to Long Beach Community College, drive to Target, then drive home-only to find out my brother is expecting someone to take him to his game.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

I take a 40 minute nap. Drive my brother to his game in Chino, drive back home, quickly get ready for a family gathering, drive to Pomona for family gathering, then drive home. FINALLY.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Later on today, Saturday: Drive my sister to a bridal shower (West Covina), run company errands-yes, on a saturday, pick up my friend Courtney from ULV (University of La Verne, pick up my sister from West Covina, drive to Americana at Brand, drive to Griffith Observatory for the sunset, drive to Roscoe’s Chicken and Waffles for dinner off Sunset Blvd, then drive home. I’ll probably have to drop Courtney off at ULV too.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

If Friday’s drivers are going to be the same kind of drivers on Saturday I may have my sister drive.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

I emailed him and invited him to a Saturday game. I told him if he wanted to come to text me if he didn’t want to come. A text is unnecessary. Is that rude?

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

This weather is killing me. It’s cold then hot. Friday was drizzling/spitting and in the afternoon it was warm and sunny THEN in the evening was cold and breezy.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

California weather please make up your mind. My allergies go berserk and so does my health!

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Honestly, if I wanted sporadic and spastic weather I would move to Greenville, South Carolina. There is sporadic and spastic. In one week I could experience all four seasons!

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

I’ve got an Interview on Monday at 1:30. I haven’t heard anything from USC yet. I’m planning on calling them Monday to see how the interview process is going for all the applicants and if I’m still in the running.  

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

I’ll be updating my Resume and adding a whole lot more responsibilities and duties to my current job description.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Thursday I was not feeling well at all. Wednesday night was a horrible allergy night. I think it’s from the egg rolls I ate, they had carrots in them. It’s really hard to remember I’m allergic to veggies-celery, carrots, and potatoes.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

I digress, so Thursday I call in sick. I’m exhausted. My allergies/sinus are kicking in. Menopausal weather does not help. I’m expected to come into the 3 pm meeting. The meeting lasted 30minutes. Honestly, they should’ve called my home phone for this meeting.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

This is getting ridiculous. I’m really in need of a sabbatical.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

What I really want to do though is get alone. No distractions and no people. Just sit, contemplate, pray, read, relax, and fast. Maybe I only need 1 day, or maybe 2-3 days. I just need a couple of days to refocus and reenergize.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

It doesn’t look like that can happen anytime soon. Praying it does though. I need it.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Until then this will be my happy thought….

Welcome to My Randomness

Last Friday as I was driving home, some driver was drifting into my lane. So what did I do?! I honked OF COURSE! What did he do? Get upset at me. Apparently, he wanted to cut me off not accidentally drift and apologize for it. What else did he do?! As he exited the freeway he decided to flip me off. Well, excuse me, if you put your blinker on and maybe not cut me off would I let you into my lane. Goodness gracious! People need HELP!

Monday: Some creepo driver dude trying to talk to me through my open window.

Situation solved: Put the window up.

If ever trying to hit on me-don’t you dare do it during rush hour. I am sitting in my car after sitting for 8+ hours at work. If you have nothing funny to say do not say anything at all. Just a thought, I’m pretty sure I come across as a type of person that does NOT want you to talk to her. Just saying…

Fortune from Sunday’s buffet meal:

A beautiful, smart, and loving person will be coming into your life.

Just curious, by beautiful, do you mean a gorgeous looking hunk of a man? And ‘will be coming’…I know that means in the future but could you maybe put a limit on the time frame? Would you mind stating if this person will be staying for a long long time?!

Thank you.

Two ideas for pages: I have never…Have you ever…. Ya know, like the game?

and… My excursions on the road… regarding the drivers above.

In process…

I’m on a spending fast until Chicago. I haven’t spent money on anything besides gas and snacks-which have amounted to like $5 in the past 2 weeks. Pretty good huh?! The only time I will break my fast is when I have already planned out how much I’m going to spend, where I will spend it, and on what the money will be spent on. As in today, I am in dire need of some business slacks that actually fit me! So I am going to purchase 2 pairs from Ann Taylor-I have a $40 gift card. Hopefully they have a sale because my budget today is $50.

Keeping with the theme-RANDOM. That’s why I’ve been using different font colors, just saying….

and yes, Welcome to my Randomness will be an every Friday deal. Unless of course something more important happened or will be happening then it will be replaced for that week…
