I hate this weather

I hate it so much. If I were living back home in KC, where this kind of winter weather was a normal, regular occurrence, it would be one thing. But ATL isn't equipped to handle it. I worked from home today, and likely will again tomorrow, and this just confirms what I already knew: working from home on regular basis is not for me. Too isolating.


How does someone, who is very much NOT ME, manage to get a hold placed on my mail? The Postal Service won't even let me CANCEL the stupid hold, because I don't have the confirmation number, nor can they look it up by my phone number. (BECAUSE I DIDN'T REQUEST IT, OF COURSE)

What a pain in the ass.

This Space for Vent

So, some of you might be aware that I've been unemployed (at least when it comes to full-time employment) for a while. Like, a LONG while. And I generally don't want to clog this space with complaints about interviews and stuff, because lots of people are dealing with that frustration. But a really annoying thing happened to me just before the holidays, and I really have nowhere else to put this but here.

This is just generally good advice:

From the same people who advised you on how to appropriately crash someone else's Thanksgiving dinner, here's how to have a good time at your office's holiday party (or any office party, really), preferably without getting fired: http://www.chow.com/food-news/100288/planning-to-drink-at-the-office-holiday-party-use-this-flow-chart/

I don't have an office party to go to this year, but I did do shots with my boss at a holiday party once. Fortunately, he paid.

Well, that was embarrassing ...

How ridiculous is it that my car battery died AT A GAS STATION less than a mile from home, on the one day I decide to go out without my cell phone?


At least the guy at the Shell station was nice enough to jump the battery. Props to him.

Peeps Show 2010

The Washington Post sponsored its' fourth annual Peeps Diorama contest this year, and as usual, the finalists have completely and totally outdone themselves. I'm not a marshmallow fan, but MAN, the folks who create these works of art are insane, in the best way possible.
