Grrrrrrr. Just ... grrrrrrrrrr

I'm in a mood.

And boy oh boy howdy, when I'm in a mood, everyone in my house DUCKS or, better yet, runs for cover.

Things didn't go my way this week at work or at play. Work is same-old-same-old in the sucky department, but play? Well, that audition I messed up led to NOT getting the part.

Which I expected, but that doesn't mean I'm happy about it.

Moving on...

In the good news department, my boy is home, and a certain peace always reigns for me when he and I are in the same zip code.

But otherwise? Things are hackin' me off:

1) Automatic flushing toilets at my office: Oh come on, people. Don't you think we are capable of doing the deed ourselves? Ok, well, I understand that it's all automatic and cool.

But ... here's the thing. When I pull out the paper seat and rip the little hole thing out of it and settle it on the potty seat, then turn around and unzip and prepare to settle myself on the seat ... why-oh-why-oh-why-oh does it have to flush, thereby prematurely whisking away the paper seat cover before my delicate backside has had a chance to sit down?

Premature e-flush-ulation is the pits.

2) Eggnog lattes: Dude. You're tormenting me. I'm trying REALLY hard not to succumb to the excess fatness of you this year. Skinny vanilla lattes are not my drink of choice, but my drink of determination. Stop tempting me with your caloric goodness.

3) Screaming teens: Girls, please. I want to see "Twilight," too. But I want to be able to hear the dialogue, not just faint over Robert Pattinson.

Eh, that's enough for one day. Three's a charm anyway, and I don't want to wear out my welcome.

Come back again tomorrow for Weekly Winners, which will include photos from the ever-popular Drama King birthday dinner!

I did an experiment once, because ya know that's what I do, and your pee will sink the hole before it overflows. You can totally sit down without tearing the hole out! It tears itself out!

Does that help with anything?

Judith Shakespeare said...

Did you say "Premature e-flush-ulation"? Bwahahahahahahahaha. Sorry, I know it sucks, but Bwahahahahahahahaha.

Pamela said...

yes. I learned only a few years ago that I need to sit on the toilet seat paper cover before i worry about the hole.

don't every say you can't teach an old dog new tricks.
(although I've never attempted the piddle suggestion from simply jenn.)

Yeah, I have the same issue with the automatic toilet...I hate them!

Momisodes said...

I'm sorry to hear about the audition. I do hope you're feeling better though.

I HATE the auto flush, too. Along with the auto paper towels. I mean seriously. IF and When they work, I've already flung water all over the place.

We want to go see Twilight, but I wasn't about to go near that theater on Thurs, Fri or Sat. They have a Sunday matine I might try to venture out for.

Debbie said...

I also hate toilets that flush with so much force water ends up on the seat and then you never know what it really is.

Sarah said...

Here's a trick for the flushing issue. Put a post-it over the sensor. It won't flush until you remove it...giving you plenty of time to put down the paper and do your business!

I personally am very grateful for automatic flushing, at least in this area. Why? Because NO ONE in rural areas can flush a toilet. I actually heard one woman say she won't because she doesn't want to touch the handle because of germs (that's why they have SINKS AND SOAP AND WATER). Although I'm not crazy about the ones at Walmart because they flush a little too enthusiastically and spray water OUT of the bowl. (The clean water, not the used water.)

Janet said...

Oh, yeah, I finally actually READ "Twilight." All our librarians were going to see the movie Friday night, but their two copies are on the reserve list until sometime in 2011, so they ordered a new copy and saved it for me. Sometimes I do love small towns (in spite of the above comment).

I am waiting at least a couple of weeks until I try to go see Twilight! I hate auto toilets! I'm sorry things aren't going right. XO

Jaina said...

I hate pre-mature flushing. SOOOO annoying. I'm glad your boy is home for a while, that's got to make you feel better.

Eternal Sunshine said...

HATE the auto flush. It always decides to flush while you're still sitting on it, and then you get a wet hiney.

DON'T get me started...

Joanna said...

I sat kick the rat dog as it will make you feel better. I'm with you on being in a foul mood. Grr

Janet said...

lol it was funny to listen to the girls scream when the Cullens first appeared on screen, lmao! I felt like I was at a Beatles concert. Sprinkle some cinnamon on your skinny vanilla...might help!

What's worse than the paper seat getting flushed is that wooosh of cold air thing that happens and causes my pee to stop midstream. My hooha doesn't like cold breezes.
