Stupid, stupid day.

I'm having a bad day.
My phone won't stop ringing, my daughter puked at camp, my car is making funny noises (not ha-ha funny, $900 funny) and I think I just insulted the godol hador.
My hair got stuck in the clip of my sheitel and I almost had to give myself a GI Jane haircut to get it out (I was finally able to untangle (detangle?)it with out the help of a scissors, VERY painful!) My mother is having a nervous breakdown because my brother is "ruining his life" and my boss was transferred to another department without assigning me to a new manager.

I need a vacation, preferably somewhere not so hot.

Thank you for listening.

What did you say to GH? He's pretty forgiving I think. I've made some weird comments at his site but haven't been banned yet.

I don't have hair-stuck-in-sheitel problems because (a) don't wear a sheitel and (b) hair is one inch long (still growing out from my lesbian haircut). But my Border Collie has very long hair that often gets tangled and matted. I've found the best way to deal with it is very slowly and very gently separate the tangles. A sedative may help.

Did I mention sedatives? J&B scotch too.

Oh before I deleted it some imposter made a rude comment in GH's name and I responded to it.

It didn't occur to me that an imposter would bother with my smalltime blog, but I guess it should have...

What losers there are out there...

Let's hear the brother ruining his life story. That could help the afternoon pass by quickly.

Also are you comparing me to your Border collie? I think I will take that scotch now, thank you.

Now I understand the therapy part. It is therapy for you. I recommend a quite, click your heals together, and say "There's no place like home" over and over. It may not work, but it will distract you from the hair issues if you click your heals enough as your heals will hurt.

Unfortunatley I can't give that one away, but perhaps if you took the words: midlife crisis, motorcycle, mortgage, money, and mother-in-law and put them together you could put together an equally interesting story brought to you by the letter "M."

LOL! Actually my blog was supposed to be about helping OTHER PEOPLE with their problems but I lost my format about a week in...
Thank you for reminding me to get back to it (eventually...)

Maybe you could find another single but looking that we could torture

 
At 3:59 PM, Blogger Shifra said...

Torture?
I thought you gave him some pretty solid advice, but that sounds fun too. I'll get the dunk tank set up...

Any volunteers?

let me try to find my sister

 
At 4:01 PM, Blogger Air Time said...

or sister in law. she would be more fun.

 
At 4:04 PM, Blogger Mirty said...

My sister is single (a widow), but no man would be brave enough to ask her out. She's an ultra-marathon runner, a genius, wealthy and thin. Way intimidating. (I am her opposite in every way - slow runner, not too bright, nearly bankrupt and ... let's not talk about it.)

I don't know about that Mirty, most men I meet seem to think there is no woman out of their reach...

 
At 4:16 PM, Blogger Air Time said...

does that make you the farthest out of his league person your husband could get?

 
At 4:17 PM, Blogger Van! said...

what would you say about having a VAN up in ya!

LOL! Yes 100%
He did very well for himself I'd say...

 
At 4:25 PM, Blogger Air Time said...

this is the most interesting conversation going on in all of blogsville

 
At 4:29 PM, Blogger Shifra said...

How sad is that.
Do you think it's the weather?

 
At 4:29 PM, Blogger Shifra said...

And who is this Van character?

 
At 4:33 PM, Blogger Air Time said...

don't know who van is, but his readers on his blog appear to be gay and enjoy describing their relationship to him.

 
At 4:33 PM, Blogger Air Time said...

we have perfect weather today. finally. it has been really hot and sticky and thunderstorming for the last few days

 
At 4:37 PM, Blogger Shifra said...

That's how it is here today- hot and miserable.

Oh and as you can see from his comments Van is another one of those men who doesn't realise when a woman is out of his league (although he may be overcompensating just a bit...)

i sure i am stealing this from someone, but "it's not the heat, it's the stupidity!" i did give this blessing once before, but i believe it's still appropriate: may you be blessed with an almost normal life! (face it, you'd be bored with normal).

 
At 7:15 PM, Blogger Shifra said...

It's very true, I'm always taking the road less normal.

:)

But Dolly is very pretty!

 
At 7:50 PM, Blogger Shifra said...

She is very pretty, but she is still a dog :)
