I love Mt Pleasant every day except Christmas Day. I'm working, and the $183.68 I'm earning on this shift isn't cheering me up. I'd pay twice that to be in Vicksburg with my extended family. I spent two days at home, at least, before this little work emergency cropped up.

I'll get over it eventually, but right now I'm moodier than a rapidly-cycling bipolar, menopausal woman wearing a thong and a corset.

One thing that has helped to cheer me up was the perfectly timed arrival of the swedishfrogs christmas card yesterday (I've changed apartments, and the post office is very slow at the whole forwarding thing). Thank you so much, dahling, I needed the boost.

Having to be here allowed me to go to Carol's annual Christmas Eve bash. Fun times, and my Flirtini recipe was a hit. I still want to try adding crushed pineapple. Maybe for the SATC premiere . . .

I'm trying not to be vengeful, but I couldn't resist being 17 minutes late this morning (I was shooting for 20 but caved in the final moments). I keep trying to tell myself that this is the last shit job I'm ever going to have, but it's hard not to be angry when I was forced to play Who's the Most Self-Centered? with my co-workers over this(the favorite game of worthless coworkers everywhere). Marie tried to say something nice this morning, I responded with the empathic grunt I save for callers that are truly pissing me off. I think she got the hint. Basically, I'm here, it happened, I'm trying to be very buddhist about the whole experience, but I don't want empty words from people who have repeatedly proven that they will do whatever they have to to get exactly what they want 100% of the time. I refuse to let them feel comfortable about their decision, either.

Well, I'm going back to bed. I'll try to sleep some of this attitude off.

UPDATE (211p):I'm in a better mood again. A little sleep, plus Carol, Karlee, and Chelsee stopped by to bring me treats, so I'm much sweeter. I brought some old QAF tapes; I think I'll throw one in.

First time for everything

So I watched World Idol. I've only seen about ten minutes of one episode before this, so this was my Idol cherry.

I voted for Kurt and for Ryan. Both of them had small strikes against them (too much eyes closed action versus that odd fast vibrato) but they were the two I liked the most. I would have voted for Will or Guy, but I hated the arrangements of their songs so much that I couldn't get into them at all.

The winners in the If I Were Watching With The Volume Off category are Heinz and Will together (yeah, baby, together!!!) I usually don't go for pretty boys, but I couldn't look away when either were on.

. . . and Kelly. I thought she was amazing, the best one up there (I have a feeling that Will is just as good, but for that arrangement). A little too much goose-like neck action at the end of her song, but I was still blown away.

Other thoughts that popped up while watching
-That movie Win a date with Tad Hamilton looks really cute. Can't wait to see it.
-Did you catch Kate Mulgrew's voice in the Ford Freestar commercial? Kick Ass!!! Which van did Leonard Nemoy support back in the day?
-Did you catch that Fuji digicam commercial? Something about that lady reminds me of Madeline Kahn, which is a very good thing in my book. I love and miss her.
