"That's A Bright Skirt"

I was just offered a cupcake and I turned it down. I'm not sure what would possess me to be so rude, but the deed is done. Its probably all for the best. Unless I spend the rest of the day obsessing about said cupcake. Then its just a production killer.

I guess the question here is: do I care if my production is killed?

The answer is no, as long as no one else notices.

Today I think is going to be one of those days that everyone around me is painfully stupid. Or perhaps I'm just sooooo not in the mood to pretend not to notice.

Case in point: I'm in the lunchroom making my tea, minding my own business. If I'm just making my tea what do you think the chances are that I have already had some form of caffeine? Low right? John walks in. John who has mercifully been away on training for when they hand him his own business, who I haven't had to deal with in about 2 weeks so I've gotten out of the habit. In an effort to make conversation (he just cannot deal with the fact that I don't like or trust him) he opens with this: "That's a bright skirt"

Thank you Captain A$$hat, you're right it is bright. Can you tell me what colour it is too? Do you need a hint? Seriously, what an assinine thing to say!

This after having to explain to Maurice that last night's Canucks game was just ONE game. He's all "Do you think the Canucks have a chance to win the series now?". Uh, yeah. I do. Sure we're down in the series 2-1 but we were also down 2-1 to the Kings and look how that ended. Don't jump off the bandwagon yet folks. The boys know what they have to do. A grey whale found its way into False Creek yesterday-that is an omen of good things to come for the Canucks I promise you.

I think that Maurice just wants to get back at me for the whole UFC debate thing . I maintain that UFC is a barbaric and disgusting example of humanity as we know it.

Two bright spots in my day today (aside from my very bright skirt, which is awesome and I'm kind of annoyed that John chose to notice its awesomeness because now its tainted): my Glee music that I downloaded yesterday (3rd volume comes out May 18th- are you ready?!) and the adorable pictures Anna sent me of her dog pretending to be me.

I wish that I could post them here for you to see but there is way too much identifying information in the pictures. Basically Anna's boyfriend came to pick her up (is that what happened? If not, that's how it happened now) and brought their adorable dog. They put the dog in my chair (no one else was on the office clearly) and took pictures of him acting like me. My favourite is the one where he is lying on the chair, looking at the ground all sad-like. I totally feel that.

So while you will just have to take my word for it that these are the cutest pictures ever, I will be revisiting their awesomeness when Maurice and John and Veronica and company all get to be a little too much for me. In my bright skirt.


  1. Well what colour is it?May 6, 2010 at 12:31 PM

    I must say he is MUCH cuter in the morning when he's curled up in a ball in the nook of your side.

  2. When I first read this I thought that you were talking about John and I was confused and more than a little distressed.
    But I get it now- you were referring to the dog.
    The skirt is a yellowy green...bright. think lime popsicle?
