Things About Today That I Felt Should Be Shared (for no particular reason)

A few things about today...

-My boss nominated me for Employee of the Quarter. How cool is that? I didn't win, but that's okay (although I would have loved to take that parking spot from Mary ;-). I'm glad to know that he thinks I'm doing a good job. With so little supervision and so little feedback, it's hard to know where I stand.

-I had the most delicious rainy-day lunch ever. Grown-Up Grilled Cheese. Yup. Three cheeses melted with red onions between toasted slices of sourdough. Heaven nestled in a basket with french fries. Although, I really can't make that a habit...and my fingers smell like onions. For the most part, I don't like onions--I even asked them to leave them off, but in this case, I'm glad they messed up.
-My co-worker frustrates me to no end. She has the inability to believe anything that she cannot wholly understand. The problem is this: she understands very little. I guess it's easy for me to be snobby, but I feel like I spend my entire day talking to a 12 year old who isn't willing to see beyond the tip of her nose.
   Today, the topic was surprise pregnancies. You know...I Didn't Know I Was Pregnant a la TLC. She doesn't think it's possible. At all. Why? Because she's been pregnant twice, and she knew both times. And that's fine. I've never been pregnant, and I'm sure she knows what she's talking about. But just because she had a certain experience doesn't make it impossible for another woman to have an entirely different experience.
   It's the close-mindedness and the unwillingness to budge from her pre-conceived notions that makes me crazy. Also, the complete ignorance of those preconcieved notions. I'm contemplating a series of blog posts entitled, "Overheard In Outages."

-It's week 3 of the Spring Quarter, I've already skipped class twice, and I'm trying to talk myself out of skipping again tonight. I'm getting the work done, and it's not like anything happens in class, so why do I even need to go? I'm also contemplating a blog post entitled, "Twenty Things I Hate About OC." Because let me tell you, it's a crappy, crappy school. I'm embarrassed to go there. But a job is a job, I'd like to keep mine, and the only way to accomplish that is to finish out this certificate!

-It's Thursday, thank goodness, and that means 1) tomorrow is Friday (duh, and also yay!), 2) I get to go to work an hour later!!! and 3) I get to carpool with Tiffany! I've been missing her three days a week. Also, it's Latte Day, which makes my morning very happy.

I hope your Thursday was decent, and I hope you're not too bored with my rambles. I just felt like writing...

I definitely think you should blog the annoying, if not interesting, conversations that take place in your office. Then we can band together and I can tell you what an idiot you work with and you can feel glad that it's not just you that thinks so!
