Most Pointless Day of Work EV-ER

April 23, 2009 at 9:02 pm 21 comments


My email address below was wrong, please see the corrected email address at the bottom of the page, so sorry about any confusion!

So I had some training today that was a complete waste of my time. I’m not going to go into details but I don’t think it was of any value to me.  Because of the training I was cranky all day.  The training started right at 8 so I got to work 10 minutes early and quickly ate my delicious breakfast I didn’t even get to enjoy it but I’m sure it was wonderful.  I had a 2% Cherry Fage with peak protein granola.

Have you guys noticed that almost every picture I take at work,  has a ruler and a purple pen in it?  That’s my favorite pen, and unfortunately I have to use that ruler almost all day every day.  So, sorry if you’re sick of seeing it.

After my “oh so fun” morning I ate my lunch almost as quickly as my breakfast so I could go outside and take a walk and call everyone I knew to complain how much I hated today.  God I’m such a downer and a sailor, almost every word out of my mouth was an “F-Bomb”.   Lunch was a super easy wrap of pb and banana, not that you would be able to tell, I could have McDonald’s cheeseburgers in there but apparently I only took one picture of my wrap and you can not even see the contents.  Girl Scout Honor it was pb and banana.

Oh and for variety I threw a red pen in there!

After my training was over I had an orange.

After work Andrew picked me up and took me to D&D to get an iced coffee.  I’m so sensitive to caffeine I’m still wired hours later.  And there’s no picture because I wouldn’t shut my mouth long enough to think about getting out my camera.  Poor Andrew had to listen to me complain and tell stories of how hilariously sarcastic and bitchy I was all day, he couldn’t get a word in to tell me about his day.

My mom invited us over for dinner tonight and once I found out she was making a whole chicken I was sold on the idea.  Somehow Mom didn’t make a veggie tonight so my plate looks super boring, I assure you it was a treat for the taste buds though.  She made a side of oh so bad for you Rice-A-Roni and I was all over that.

I had another piece of chicken and another spoonful of rice.  Yummmmm!

So this weather we’re supposed to have this weekend made me think about my favorite things to do in the summer and BBQing is one of my favorites.  While talking to my dad tonight I though of the idea of having a (wait for it…)

 Blogger Barbeque. 

Would any of you from NJ or NY (I’m about an hour and 15 minute train ride from the city) or anywhere in the Tri-State area really, be interested in meeting and doing a BBQ in my parents backyard at some point this summer?  If you are send me an email:

If you are I can give you the details of where my parents live and you can see if it’s a trip you’d be willing to make.  I don’t really have any details obviously since I just thought of it but I don’t want to plan anything until I know that some of you are interested. 

Well even though I”m off tomorrow, my sweetheart is not and I’m going to go spend some quality time with him before he falls asleep.  Hope you all have a fabulous Friday and I’m hoping it goes by quickly.

  • 14. applec  |  April 24, 2009 at 10:07 am

    At least you made it through the wasted day for a long beautiful weekend.
    It’s a terrific idea bringing bloggers together for an enjoyable BQ session.

  • 15. katecooks  |  April 24, 2009 at 10:57 am

    i hate days like that too!!! im so bummed i am gonna miss out on bbq…if i were at home, i would so be there!!

  • 16. Sweetie Pie  |  April 24, 2009 at 10:59 am

    A McDonald’s cheeseburger wrap would be very interesting. You made me chuckle!

    I hate days that seem wasted due to pointless training. Somedays I also just need more work to do, and I get grumpy about being trapped in my windowless box for no good reason. Hooray for the weekend!!

  • 17. ellie  |  April 24, 2009 at 11:53 am
