i didnt know where to put this so here seems like a good spot.

i either have to delete my facebook and live in blissful ignorance or disown a good chunk of my extended family.

i keep seeing random pics pop up in my news feed that extended relatives have "liked" and one was like "like this if you think George W Bush was a better president than Obama" and its a picture of GWB's ugly mug.
and it was SERIOUS.

i must be blissfully ignorant because i thought there was a general world consensus that he was like the worst president ever.
people *liked* him?!?!?!?!??!

then today i see one that someone "liked" and it's the same picture but it says "remember the last time when we had an American as president?"

WAT?!?!?!?

am i RELATED to birthers?!?!?!?!?

i hope i was adopted.......i dont want to share the gene pool with some of these people.
thankfully it's not my immediate family.....

You're not kidding. I once went through my closet and I had sizes 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, small, medium, large and extra large... and those were just the clothes that fit.


Uuugghh! This is pretty much my closet right now (sizes 4 - 10 that fit). My size 4 capris are the largest pants I own, so that makes a ton of sense.

I've gotten to the point that I just go to my approximate size and judge visually what looks like it'll fit, because the numbers don't mean shiitake.

men's clothing is almost as stupid.. I routinely wear S, M, L and XL tops that all fit roughly equivalently

i'm not sure if you are saying you like sock puppets, or if people are better than sock puppets.
if you like sock puppets, allow me to give you this:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mjv5N_hVdJU

not technically socks but close enough. [giraffas is a brazilian fast food chain that, unsurprisingly, i have never eaten at, and the petit gateau is apparently some kind of cake with spooge in the middle.]


i definitely meant that i like most sock puppets more than most people. here's what i don't like, though: food that oozes. no. someone needs to liberate those giraffas from that twisted circus of song and dance and suppurating pastries.

So I saw my hot first floor doctor neighbor for the first time today on my walk of shame* at 8am today. He kept double-taking at me, and I can't figure out if he was wondering why my hair was so greasy or why I had no makeup on or why what makeup I did have on was smeared under my eyes or if he thought I was hot or if he was just horrified by me. None of this actually matters, but I like to make a good first impression. Oh well.

*I don't actually consider coming home from my manfriend's place in the morning a walk of shame, but I'm positive that's what it looked like to my neighbor.

Also, you guys talking about sock puppets reminded me of Nannerpuss for some reason, so here you go, for old time's sake.

I just wrote up and submitted a cover letter and then looked back at it and was all "THAT IS A BALLER COVER LETTER. I am the awesomest!"

Let's see how that goes.

Good luck, DC!

I just woke up from my first nap in probably a year. I feel weird. This is why I do not take naps. Now I remember.

I had Stonewall's jerky for the first time in probably close to ten years today. It has not improved.

I went for a run! And I ran further than I used to be able to! Hooray for quitting (or trying to quit with only a couple of setbacks) smoking! I'm going to be SO sore tomorrow.

It's always so disappointing when this happens. I had to hide a couple of cousins on Facebook because they have a tendency to post obnoxious graphics about liberals taking their guns away and things of that nature.

this is why my brother's wife got hidden from my news feed, except she would accompany these pics with rants about how stupid "MA liberals" are. it's like not a secret i am a big flaming liberal so ummm thanks sis in law!

that reminds me! the same relatives also "liked" a picture of Reagan and Thatcher that said "like this picture if you miss this duo"

ummmm barf!!!

it's very confusing cause my family definitely did not come from money or priviledge. in fact these were my dad's relatives and they grew up quite poor so im not sure where this line of thinking evolved from!

i think my birther uncle has unfriended me. i hope so, i think all the awesomeness must have given him a headache.

i hide, hide and hide. i don't want to see stuff like that.


tomorrow I have a meeting at 10. still have not been informed about the location. or whether it's even confirmed. should i turn off my cell phone and "accidentally" sleep late and miss the meeting? i will be up til 1 working. i think it sounds like a plan- i'm so tired of being the last told about everything.

I made ice cream the other day and every time I eat any of it I think about this:

Today a customer service rep from a company we work with came to visit our office. I've corresponded with her a lot via email over the past couple of years, but we've never met in person. She came into my office today and I cheerfully greeted her with a handshake and a genuine "So nice to meet you!"

Her response: "Thank you." Aaand a frown.

Really? IT'S NICE TO MEET ME TOO, CRASSHOLE.

uh oh. i was waiting in the security line to get into my client's factory today [our consult is in the top secret R&D dept so i have to go through security every single time, worse than the airport practically] and this super energetic guy came out and asked me if i was in the line. I said yeah, and he grabbed my hand and shook it enthusiastically, "so nice to meet you!" When I looked at him like he was nuts he said "you aren't Valkyria?" and I realized he hadn't asked me if I was in the line, he had asked me if I was Valkyria. Hello, lack of attention. I felt like such a tool. So, ashley, i may not have been your particular personal douchebag today, but i was someone else's personal douchebag. ugh.

That doesn't sound douchebaggy to me, torque. Just a misunderstanding. This woman knew who I was (and I overheard my co-worker in the hall pointing her toward me, saying "and that's Ashley's office over there!").

I get a lot of people in my industry not taking me seriously because I'm young and I look even younger. I don't know if that's what this was, but she just seemed like she thought she was above even talking to me.

You guys! I am in love with Galway. We had the best day ever yesterday, made tonnes of friends, heard some gorgeous traditional music at several different pubs, I had vegan fish & chips, surprisingly tasty vegan Asian food, danced, walked, and admired some beautiful antiquity. I am going to go live in the Ireland thread since I can't up and move here just yet. Today, nature!

PS...honeymoon tip: don't let your partner drink too much Guinness (yes I know Guinness isn't vegan, but neither is he).

ETA: more trip updates. efcliz is the most fun person ever, and we manhandled upwards of five vegan Korean dishes and multiple cocktails. I'm quite proud.
