Current pet peeves (my short list)

Since I'm currently bored at work, I've decided to make a short list of current pet peeves. Enjoy!

My current pet peeves:
1. Having to repeat myself to patrons on the phone (via speaker phone)
2. The fact that hotmail refuses to open (again)
3. The skanky halter top/booty short combo my husband bought me while in gulf makes me feel like a hooters girl-a generic hooters girl-hell, let's call me a cooters girl in honor of my undying love for "The Dukes of Hazzard" (imagine if you will a top 3 sizes too small and tight shorts with the words "gulf shores" written on the butt-it's craptacular!)
4.People that are shocked and pissed when their library card is not in the system anymore and decide to gripe to me about it.
5.When co-workers transfer telephone calls without telling me what it's about or the call ends up being something the transferer could have easily answered themselves.
6. Having to explain to patrons the ins and out of the computer reservation system for the millionth time.
7. Snow flurries but no full fledged snowfall (I would really love a snow day!)
8. Having to answer the same crossword puzzle clues for the crossword puzzle lady and she's not even trying to give me clues I answer.

What's the deal pickle part 2

Me and my friend are friends again. I went to her and asked if she was mad at me. She said no but I told her I didn't believe her and aplogized for whatever I may have done to make her mad. I then asked if we were okay and she said yes. I am happy to silent treatment is over.

What's the deal pickle?

This past weekend, a friend of mine asked to borrow money to get her car fixed. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to let her have it. It was just really bad timing being in that we'd just paid our bills and Den had planned a suprise valentine's day trip to the beach.At any rate, now I feel like I'm getting the cold shoulder from her and she's not talking to me at all.I understand that she may have a lot on her mind and all but the fact of the matter is that by not talking to me, this implies that something is wrong whether is it or not.

I really respect her and value our friendship and Ican't believe that something as not lendingher money would lead to her shutting me out. I've lent her money before, I just couldn't do it this time-I've said I'm sorry.I don't know....maybe I'm just being paranoid,but I don't think so.

I just feel like once again, I'm not being treated like an adult and by not talking to me and not saying why is just childish. The worst part about it is that she knows I'd give her the money if I had it-hell-she's the only person I would lend money too because she's good for paying me back on time. Even my mom doesn't always pay me back when I loan her money.

Of well....I'll just wait and see how this plays itself out.

Feeling better but still getting my butt kicked

So.....I'm feeling better, but I'm still getting my butt kicked. I have a powerpoint presentation due next week and an 18 page paper due on March 6th. I you know me, you can imagine that right now, I'm trying to work on everything all at the same time. This may or may not be a good idea.....probably not so much. Okay maybe I am putting too much pressure on myslef, but this is my graduate school career we're talking about. Since I'm in grad school on a conditional basis, I have to maintain a "B" average or risk getting kicked out. So far, I've gotten two A's but this online class has got me worried.I always worry when a teacher asks for something and I'm not sure what they want. Oh well, I guess if I was able to BS my way to a BA, I can probably BS my way to a MLIS. Here's hoping.

Being sick sucks

I am sick right now....being sick sucks. My head is stopped up and my throat is sore. I am currently medicating myself with cherry cough drops, musinex (I think that's how you spell it) and different types of cough syrup. Hopefully, I will be feeling better soon. Again, being sick sucks.Well, at least I have work to keep me busy....that and an 18 page term page I haven't even begun to write yet. Yah me!

Here's a poem I just made up in my medicine induced haze:
I am sick right now
I can hardly hear anyboy
Pass the cough syrup please
