Look out, she's cranky.

Tuesday, March 27, 2012

I've been having to write a lot lately. The floodgates of freelancing have officially blown wide open. My poor little fingers are getting a work out (if only the butt growing on my stomach could get in on that action). I'm also a little sleep deprived. And if you know me at all, if I don't get at least 8 hours in... I turn into an ogre. Literally. I'm green, smelly, and I have some crap-tastic breath.

I start my nanny job next week, so these are my last few days of freedom from small infants who cannot communicate what they want. (But MAN are they cute.) Yet, here I sit on my bo-honkus. Typing away. I've also been on hold with Fandago for the past twenty-five minutes. Good lord, they need new music. This Edward Scissorhands techno crap ain't cutting the mustard. Being on hold is just the cherry on my already delightful afternoon of sitting in my PJs looking like a homeless troll. Fandago charged Grahm and I three times when we bought our Hunger Games tickets Sunday evening. That was one expensive movie-going experience. (Did anyone else come home with their husbands and discuss strategies for staying alive in the Hunger Games? We basically argued for thirty minutes on game plan. I'd win because I'm scrappy. And small. And just incredibly good looking. Okay, okay... I'd be the first to die.)

Forgive me for rambling. I should be trying to put a dent in the 2,000 words I need finished by tonight, but I'm not. I put the PRO in procrastination. Instead I wanted to grace my blog with my crank-o-saurus mood. (You're welcome.) The sun is shining, but my pasty, flabby skin is trapped indoors staring at a computer. Just like yesterday. And the day before.

Okay, I'm done being a sad sack. I'm going to go eat my feelings... except that we have no junk food in the house, and I'm not fit to be seen by other living things. This is the pits. Speaking of which, I should go shave mine.

seriously, you make me laugh...sorry you're having a crap-tastic day, but just think of those drooling, poopy, biting little munchkins you'll be taking care of next week! I say all of that out of love since I will most certainly have one of those munchkins in my home on a daily basis very soon!

You make me laugh. But seriously, shave your pits.

Ok, I'm kidding. Cheer up you silly girl.

Katie said...

you are so funny! and my husband and i have talked many times about hunger game strategy. i'm pretty sure i'd just bury myself and hide until it was over. although they'd probably come up with aliens that come from the dirt to eat me, so I'd die right away. hope you get your money back!

lo @ crazy ever after said...

Your first week of nannying is my last. Well. Not technically. But it's my last week my two babes. I hope things go well your first week.

I have a butt growing on my stomach too. I'm going to start worrying when it decides it's going to begin farting. Ew. What?

OMG you never cease to amaze me with your witty genuine humor. Spell check! its been a long day! Good luck with your writing... press on!

Lauren said...

Sometimes its best to just get it all out there, sister. We haven't discussed our strategies in a Hunger Games, but we sure have discussed our strategies for a Zombie Apocalypse. Sheesh. Boys. That gives me an idea for a post................ :)

You are too funny! I'm sorry that you are cranky, but it makes for very funny posts ;) I saw that you are an editor, too? Don't get mad at me when I make grammar mistakes! Does anyone joke about the fact that you focus on grammar and your hubby's name is Grahmm? Do I sound like a stalker right now? I feel like it now that I've read up on ya ;)

Lauren said...

You seriously are the funniest blogger I know! You always make me crack up! I'm sorry you're having a bad day though! I also plotted with my Hubby after the movie about how we would stay alive! I said he would have to ditch me asap if he wanted any chances of survival! Haha!
