    I find it annoying when my car's computer voice announces "Your seatbelt is undone... and your hair is a mess."
    .
    .

    That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

    I hate it when rice isn't properly cooked. I'm eating my lunch and wasted a lot of fried rice because of the rice is hard (its still chewable, but its like eating nuts)
    How'd I get so white and nerdy?

    Okay, now I have two for today...

    My boss lent me his 2gb Cruzer Micro flash drive, and after I used it to transfer files, I pulled out and now it won't slide back close! The bugga stay stuck in the open position! My LG 1gb flash drive always retracts!

    People eating kaki mochi in the office.

    Smell travels, people!
    Tessie, "Nuf Ced" McGreevey shouted
    We're not here to mess around
    Boston, you know we love you madly
    Hear the crowd roar to your sound
    Don't blame us if we ever doubt you
    You know we couldn't live without you
    Tessie, you are the only only only

    Catching up with newscasts on my TiVo, I caught a story on KITV on Tuesday night's 5 p.m. broadcast on a man who was arrested for allegedly molesting a young boy.

    The newswriter was, of course, careful to note that he was "arrested on suspicion of" something that "allegedly" happened, but I guess the guy doing the infographics wasn't feeling so charitable: "PERVERT ARRESTED," said the graphic that hovered over Gary Sprinkle's left shoulder.

    So I guess my pet peeve is that people who should've failed Journalism 101 are getting media jobs in this town, while several talented friends are pushing mortgages and filing dental claims.

    Hit a pet peeve today: slow pokes in the parking structure. It's 9AM and the lower floors are full. But they slowly cruse looking for that one open stall. I just want to get past because I know where all the open stalls are - 4 floors up. But they keep making the turns that block the only path to them. <sigh>

    Actors who give my office a phone # where they can assuredly by reached between 10a and 3p on a given day, don't answer the phone during that time, pay no attention to our message to return our call by 3p, call my office back at 11p, leave a message to call them immediately then complain to their agent when they couldn't get an audition appt. I love paper trails!

    ... lawn cutters who mow their lawns after 6pm on a saturday! I can handle people blasting their music next to me in traffic, people who has obnoxious ringtones, but I no can handle when people cut lawns in the evenings!

    (I just remembered this)
    ... salespeople who lie or bend the truth a bit to make a sale. I heard a radioshack salesperson say that the zune has AM/FM radio, and can surf the internet via wifi to a couple who bought their sons 3 iPods for xmas.

    It does have FM capability but no AM. I'm not sure about wifi however.

    Personally, (which I told my hubby already), I would just rather go to school & persue my goal!!.

    Then again, If I just continue to go to school (& not go to work), I might end up hearing from him that I am nothing but a "gouging wife" from my hubby!. (He didn't really say that, but that's what he meant!!.)

    I just can't win at all!!.

    I was happier just going to school & persuing my goal, & nothing more!!!

    But.....

    What ~ ever!!

    I guess my health & well being is not that importnat, & just having a really cheap & good insurance is more important than me!!!

    What~Ever!!

    GAWD!!.
    Just to revive this a bit, ....

    I just had a revelation,

    instead of being stressed at work working for 21 hours a week, I think I will be happier much more with working maybe one or two days a week, possibly just one for now. Atleast I can still have a side money, & I'm not really quiting. I can just say this situation will be indefinate until I know otherwise, due to needing more time for school studies etc.

    The thing is, my co-workers don't know how to straight out communicate to me if they have any problems with me or with any other co workers, they would write it down on a book, everyone reads it, & signs it.

    HOW LAME!!. What's that? some kind of a blog or something in a book??? WTF?!?!

    I would rather have people discuss it with me in a kind & professional manner!!. It is considered a profesional job where I work.

    I figure, anyone who has to deal with other people in a company is a profesional work, & need to act accordingly in a profesional manner.


    Not communication on a book about somebody else that they are having a problem with.

    I would confront that person If I was having a problem with he/she with.

    well...

    that's my own answer to my own problems, & will see how it works out for me.

    I don't really care about the insurance if it cause me to get stressed out. My hubby can just tack me on to his insurance again,ike he did before.

    As far as any financial situation, I am working that out with my hubby.

    Hopefully I get a better job soon that people can actually talk to me about the problems that they are having with me instead of having to read it in a damn book.

    For now, I will be just concentration on my studies & goal.

    Aloha. =)

    Serenity - just out of curiousity, what kind of work do you do? Sounds like your supervisor/manager needs to get a better handle on their employees or you wouldn't be having all the problems and stress that you do. I feel bad for you - I've been in jobs like that & it's not easy to not go postal on your co-workers sometimes

    I probably would have a better chance in going to the APPLE store in Alamoana & asking help there .

    GAWD!!.
    I guess with that statement about the Apple Store in the mainland, gives a whole new meaning to the sentence of:

    " I see your lips move, but all I hear is Blah Blah Blah!!.

    In thier case; it would be more like: I hear your lips move (on the phone), but all I hear is blah blah blah!!.

    I just couldn't resist but to make that statement back about the apple store in the mainland, lol.

    I hate it when people get scammed into a ACN-type organization. There's a computer user who I'm teaching to use a computer to check his email and I see that his inbox is filled with emails from people on the mainland that has tips on how to sell to people, and recruit more people into the organization.

    How'd I get so white and nerdy?

    waking up is often my pet peeve of the day. neither i nor the beau are morning people. it's so hard to get out of bed when you're all nice and snuggly and warm and comfy.

    ...until you gotta pee like a racehorse.

    Yeah, you,me & everyone else in this world!!.

    Sometimes I wish that we all have some kind of looong tube from the bed (or bedroom) to the the toilet bowl in our own restroom, so that we don't ever have to get out of bed ever, unless to shower, get up to change clothes, &/or to eat.

    Hey, sometimes we just gotta have our own lazy moments too.

    Careful what you wish for --- I'm assuming you don't want to be in a medical care facility just yet.
