Ugh I’m having an existential crisis due to The Office ending. It’s a problem I have after watching a series finale. It’s not quite as bad as the day after I watched the series finale of Lost, but that finale basically SUGGESTED that I have an existential crisis. The Office is just making me have one out of sadness and nostalgia.
The only series finale I can remember watching that didn’t end in me panicking about my life is Arrested Development, because I was able to focus my emotions on fiery rage toward Fox. BUT IT’S OKAY BECAUSE SEASON FOUR IN A LITTLE OVER A WEEK.
Wow cancel me being pissed off, her dad felt so bad about it he took the afternoon off work so I can leave early.
So normally I work half days on Tuesday/Thursday cause the four year old I nanny has preschool in the morning and I just pick her up after lunch and take her to her house but their dad had to work early today so I came over to drop her brothers off at their bus stop and then drop her off and then go back home until after lunch but when we got to her preschool it was CLOSED and her parents didn’t know and it just drives me crazy how often they aren’t attentive of schedules and it ends up messing up my day. This kind of stuff happens way more often than it should. Like tbh I didn’t really get dressed or anything this morning cause I wasn’t going to be at their house long and then was just going to get cleaned up when I came home so I had to bring her back to my apartment so I could change and all and I feel bad cause she just wants to play now but honestly I’m making her watch a movie cause I thought I would have the morning to myself and I’m pissed. Like she said she was done with the movie after like 20 minutes and I told her she had to finish it. I’m the worst. But whatever if making a child watch The Aristocats is the worst thing I do today I’ll be ok.
I keep trying to go get coffee without stuff I need this morning. First it was pants (no, seriously), then it was glasses.
Also today I drove past a church sign that said “Stop drop and roll doesn’t work in Hell.”
Thanks very encouraging.
The four year old that I nanny has a Snow White costume and wig. Today she wanted to act out Snow White and I was the witch and gave her an apple to pretend to eat. We played for a while but then she got tired so now she’s just sitting and watching tv, dressed like Snow White, eating the “poisoned” apple I gave her. Amazing.
|Roommate (in kitchen):||OH NOOOOOOOOO!|
|Me:||uh... are you ok?|
|Roommate:||I accidentally started cooking REGULAR rice instead of MINUTE RICE|
|Me:||Oh no I'm so sorry|
|Roommate:||twenty to twenty-five MINUTES!|
the thunder is so loud tonight i can feel the wall vibrate every time it happens. mmmmthunderstorm
PS the emergency maintenance at my apartment is amazing they came out and stopped the water and fixed the hose that leads to the dishwasher (which is what burst) and are now vacuuming the water out of my carpet at almost 1am like you guys rock.
My boyfriend slept through this whole goddamn thing.
Well it’s hard to get people to be logical when they’re drunk/drinking. Not gonna lie, sounds like she’s kind of a hater, but I mean I’ll also play drinking games where X character I really like does dumb things and you drink? Idk man. IDK.
Yeah no I don’t mind drinking games in theory, it was just she kept saying she wanted me to come over and watch Doctor Who with her and we had talked about our favorite episodes/companions pretty extensively so I didn’t know it was going to be like a making fun thing? And she’d mentioned there’d be drinks but while I do drink occasionally I don’t like to get more than, like, buzzed and don’t like beer which is all she had so I was the odd one out on that front. Well, my roommate doesn’t drink but he also doesn’t like Doctor Who so he was just kind of not paying attention period.
But idk I feel super rusty at making new friends and I DEFINITELY want to be friendly to her - she’s a nice girl and we have common interests and she’s been over here a lot lately etc but I also have a hard time keeping my mouth shut about stuff I like and it was like an internal struggle between my nerdiness and my feeling that I just needed to be cool.
in any case when we left she yelled “YOU’RE COOL!” out the door to me so i guess i pulled it off?
Preface: I live with my boyfriend and a male roommate who is a good friend. Roommate just got a new girlfriend that he really likes.
Said girlfriend is pretty cool and really wants to be friends with me and invited me over to watch Doctor Who so I came over.
It’s me and my roommate and his girlfriend and her other friend.
Turns out they are making this a drinking game and are trying to make fun of the ep?
They picked The Impossible Planet/The Satan Pit and I was excited because ROSE, but turns out they don’t like Rose and want to make fun mostly of her (“drink every time… rose is an idiot”) and I tried to be like “No I love Rose guys this episode is actually a great example of some of her best characteristics…” but they just talked over me and said she had a weird mouth.
Oh dear. How do I friend?
