More fun with cable

Well... So, this is another update on my pathetic cable situation. Those who are not interested, flee now. Just to warn the reader, I am tired, I am grumpy, and I am really seriously pissed-off that my cable service decided to cut out in the middle of Buffy last night. What follows will probably devolve into a serious pity-rant that will convince the reader that I am a psycho, obsessive freak who needs to step away from the TV and explore the world outside.

(It should be noted, by the way, that I do not deny the psycho or the obsessive part -- since that way leads to raucous choruses of laughter from my friends any time I try to deny it in their hearing. However, I can too step away from the TV. And usually do (it's the Internet I refuse to give up). But after three *%^#@ weeks of not being able to watch my TV programs when they air, I am starting to feel that the one steady, orderly thing in my life is being disrupted, and I am far from pleased about it. Besides, everyone's right -- Buffy has been noteworthily good this season. Or at least, what I've seen of it has been...)

Random lunchtime conversation

One day recently Cirdan and I were discussing the troubles with getting a new job. In particular, we were commenting that in getting a new job, one never knows if one is getting a better boss, when this snippet came up:

Me: "You never know when you're going to get a boss who locks contractors in a room with him and starts playing a ukulele at them in the middle of a meeting."

Cirdan: *long, silent pause* *disturbed look* "You picked that example at random, right? Right??"

Me: "Oh. No. My last psycho freak boss did that. He looked like Odo."


On a related work note, after making one particularly catty comment today, I told the Chihuahua On A Stick that I was in a really grouchy mood. She said, "Oh, good. You're much more fun when you're like this."

I'm disturbed. Now I know that when I'm in a bad mood, people at work break out the popcorn and kick back to watch the entertainment.
