>monday, january 29th, 2007: fuss monday.
(So I’m posting this a day late. Thank you for your amazing attention to detail.)
first things first: Goldie Hawn stole my car. I’m uber-pissed. (I’m seriously considering pressing charges, but also considering the vehicle she absconded with, I’m willing to view it as a blessing in disguise…)
My fuss? I’ve been up since 4 am. My boyfriend had a 7 am flight which means he had to be at the airport at 5 am which means we had to leave the house by 4:30 am which meant we had to be up by 4 am but I ended up getting treated to a waffle at Denny’s which made it somewhat worthwhile but the early wake-up call in itself somewhat set the tone for the day and made me more sensitive than usual to things I wouldn’t normally find irritating giving me even more material to fuss about. And this, my friends, is what you call a run-on sentence.
Upon my arrival to work, I decided that the best way to get my mind off my woes was to deal with everyone else’s. So I sent out a very selective inter-office email to see just what was pissing everyone off. Observe:
Mo-Wee-Sha: That she had to work this weekend
Socks that won’t stay up
Carrie Da Boon: 1. February is on Thursday. Februarys suck.
2. Not having a transporter to get me back and forth to work.
It would be nice to just be able to push a button and be
Melissa: That it’s Monday. (I promptly 86’d this response figuring it would
be the most popular one…)
Susan: I forgot my water bottle. I’m thirsty.
Terri: There are too many to name today. I think I should win hands down. (I
promptly informed her that this didn’t count, that since this was going
to be in my blog i would need something more witty than that…she
disagreed and alternately scowled at me.)
Sylvia: My fuss is that our water heater went out over the weekend and it’s
still not fixed!!
Greg: 1) A single spurt of coffee left in the carafe
2) Not being able to eat lunch until 3:15pm
However, no fuss, no muss.
And who doesn’t love muss?
(Of course i couldn’t let that go unchallenged…
To: Greg *. ****
Subject: RE: Fuss Monday
I must say I am much more a fan of the muss than the fuss as the muss is a
mess and the fuss is a fit and the mess and the fit dont mesh cuz the fuss
makes a muss and the fit makes a mess and the resulting mish-mash mess of
muss and the fuss is undoubtedly peculiar.
