Trivial, but still.

It’s almost May.
And it’s 35 degrees out.
And it’s raining.
And I’m freezing.
And I didn’t listen to the weather this morning so I only had a light coat.
And I’m wet.
And I just caught a rotten cold yesterday.
And I’m probably still going to be sick for TequilaCon.
And I had to cancel fun dinner plans because I feel crappy.
And my camera is messed up.
And I don’t have any time to get it fixed before my next photo class.
And all my photos for my assignment have a giant black blob on the bottom.
And it’s not the lens.
And I missed my earlier train.
And I don’t have any food in my house.
And I don’t want to go to the grocery store.
And oh look, it’s cat puke.
And this gum lost its flavor at least twenty minutes ago.
And I wish someone would just make me some matzo ball soup.
I feel a little better now that I got that out. Feel free to add any annoyances of your own.

    I’m defending a thesis in four days and my advisor basically informed me that my argument is baseless.

    You don’t want to hear my troubles.
    Suffice to say that I have a week’s worth of work to get completed in one day.
    I need chocolate cake.

    Dude, I have to wake up at 4:30AM every other day and let someone put giant needles in my arm.
    I recommend probiotic supplements, from the health food store, in the refrigerated supplement section. Start taking them now, and you should feel MUCH BETTER in time for Tequilacon.
    They may also have soup.

  7. kat! Says:

    i have just one, but i think i’ll continue keeping it to myself.

  8. brandon Says:

  9. sizzle Says:

    I’m apparently scary to one of my tenants.
    I’m a people pleaser and over-sensitive.
    I am almost out of milk but don’t want to go to the store.
    I am bored to tears at my job.
    I’m getting a blemish.
    I’m tired all the time.

    If I didn’t just eat Matzoh ball soup for 7 days -and had any mix left – i would bring you some at TC.

  11. Karl Says:

    Does this mean we won’t be making out this weekend? That would suck.
    I DO, however, have my own crap story. I’ve been on my new blog/host for less than 30 days and just found out I have to switch hosts because mine doesn’t allow swearing. No shit. It’s in their TOS.

  12. jenny Says:

    sir: Here’s what I would say to your advisor, “You know what? I think YOU’RE baseless!” And that, kind sir, is why I could never defend a thesis.
    dave2: I just ate some chocolate pudding and thought of you. We’ll get cake in Philly.
    tracy lynn: Dude. Dialysis totally trumps freezing rain. But probiotics? When did you get all Yoko Ono on us?
    kat: Just one annoyance? You must be a very tolerant person.
    brandon: Oh, don’t even get me started on #1. But please don’t eat moth balls. You’ll smell like old people.
    sizzle: I just read your entry – that tenant is a moron! Who thinks it’s ok to write on a table? These people scare easily.
    libragirl: That’s okay, you can just tell me about it and I’ll live vicariously through you.
    karl: So sorry to disappoint! And hey – did you switch to Vahid’s host? He had the same problem.

    Having just bought some more cell minutes a week ago, the replacement battery I bought just a couple of months ago seems to be totally dead despite charging. Sigh.
    Hope you’re feeling better soon.

  14. vahid Says:

    I mangled my knee last week, so much so that I doubt I’m going to risk drunken bowling this weekend, and I need to go back to the office tonight. But sometimes we need to stay the course, and they only way they can take TequilaCon from me is by prying it from my cold, dead hands.

  15. Dingo Says:

    Ha! Jenny, I like your “baseless” comeback for Sir. It’s the one thing that’s made me laugh today. Sir, you have to tell us how J’s snappy retort went over with your advisor.

  16. serap Says:

    I’m moving house on Friday… do I need to go into any more detail?

  17. jenny Says:

    claire: technology will be the end of us all!
    vahid: you had to go back to the office at 9pm? that sucks so bad!
    dingo: thanks! i really should have been a lawyer, my arguin’ skillz are that good!
    serap: ugh. no more detail necessary – my condolences!

  18. Hilly Says:

    All of mine seem so petty now, haha. But our internet keeps going out at work and when I am away from my precious net, I get pissy.
    I am sending magical healing juju your way. I will NOT have my fearless leader sick in Philly!

  19. churlita Says:

    It actually snowed for bit here in Iowa yesterday. I win, right?

  20. Tracy Lynn Says:

    You DO understand that you make the Baby Jesus weep when you mock me, motherfucker, hmmm? :-)

  21. jenny Says:

    hilly: don’t worry, it’s not a competition, because if it were, my petty grievances wouldn’t even get me an honorable mention!
    churlita: GAK! i almost lost my mind with the freezing rain. snow would’ve pushed me over the edge.
    tracy lynn: i would never mock you… for fear of the deadly flying spoons!

  22. Pants Says:

    You’re having an “Alexander and the No Good Very Bad Day” day. Hate those! Did you ever read that book when you were a kid? I like that his solution is to move to Australia.
    If we lived closer I’d totally make you matzo ball soup. Nothing feels better when you’re sick…except for maybe not being sick.

  23. T Says:

    I teach ESL to Adults and they don’t listen to me. At all. That’s my biggest complaint right now.
    (and they do understand, they just don’t listen to instructions and then it annoys the piss out of me)

  24. Black Belt Mama Says:

    We had a third showing of our house and 24 hours later we are STILL waiting for an offer that they said is coming. GRR.
    Get some Airborne before Saturday!

  25. Dustin Says:

    Sometimes you wanna go…
    Where everybody knows your naaa-aame,
    And they’re always glad caaa-aame,
    You wanna be where you can see,
    our troubles are all the saaaaame
    You wanna be where everybody knows
    Your naaaaaame.

    And that place would be Philadelphia. In 4 days. No problem you have I won’t be able to solve with overly sugary alcoholic beverages.

  26. shari Says:

    Single malt. 12 or more years. Make it a double. (Because one of those shots is for me.) Hope you feel better right NOW.
    My biggest single annoyance at the moment is baseball tournaments, for obvious reasons. However, I reserve the right to be annoyed at anything additional at any time.
