Dumb things I have done this week


1. Walked into my office, glanced at a card with my name on it on my desk, and asked, "Is that for me?"

2. Decided that I was too tired after a day of work + three hours of volunteer meetings to put away the lingerie that was hanging out to dry. Sure enough, the maintenance guy came by today. (This has happened before.)

3. Believed the weather forecast - twice - when it was supposed to be warm and sunny. And dressed accordingly. Turns out it was 60 and pouring. Silly me, it's only July.

4. Scheduled an afternoon of tennis, going with aforementioned forecast. And then scheduled another one. I believe the words are "epic fail."

5. Said, "I'm sorry" when hearing that an acquaintance had broken up with a partner of 2 1/2 years. Because then I got to listen to everything that was wrong with that relationship. Next time, I'm just going to say, "Great!"

6. Thought I could handle more than one mocha today without bouncing off of the walls. (Now I have bruises.)

7. Tried to figure out how to use the "share" feature on our Facebook page at work, unsuccessfully. I'm from Silicon Valley and I can't figure this out! I should hang my head in shame.

Theoretically these lists come in themes of 10, but the week's not over yet. Give me time :)

It's only Tuesday and you already have 7 items? Looks like a bumper crop this week. Way to go!

I'm still back at #1 wondering who the card was from and if it was a greeting or a death threat.

I laughed at loud at the lol cat.

A two Mocha day - yum (despite the bouncing.) :)

awesome picture.

AND YOU SHOULD TOTALLY HANG YOUR HEAD IN SHAME. Facebook was made for idiots, which means you're...a genius.

And the plan for world dominatin is now in place. I see no way this carefully laid plan could...

Claire said...

Sounds like quite a week, my friend.

In other news, love that LOLcat!

(and I am super excited to get to meet you before too long!)

See, #5 could be worse. You could have said, "Great! What an asshole! He was fat, and stupid, and no one liked him anyway" and then in two days, gotten to enjoy the awkward moment when they got back together and both of them knew what you REALLY thought.

Okay, after re-reading this post, I just got a funky mental image of you playing tennis and--

SLAP!

BAD BLOGGER PERSON! HOW DARE YOU GET THOSE KIND OF THOUGHTS IN THAT BRAIN OF YOURS? DON'T YOU KNOW THAT SHE IS A FINE UPSTANDING VIRTUOUS KIND OF WOMAN???

Good lord, have you even seen such a thing? A guy planted face first two inches into the roadway!

Where did my comment go? :(

Riot Kitty said...

Just played tennis and my wrist is not up to typing so I will make individual replies soon when it is better!

But G - HAHAHA!
And Joey, I didn't see another comment?

Sorry, I'm distracted by the photo. What was that again about lingerie?

ileana said...

Glad you got to play tennis. You and that lingerie, chica. I wonder if it's all planned...even orchestrated by God...as a joke. :)

When friends break up you don't mind the details. When an acquaintance calls it quits you don't need to know who did what and why...but how walk away without seeming heartless?

Riot Kitty said...

PM: Hahaha!
I: Not planned by me!

Green Tea said...

Love it, I need to know that I am not the only screw up in the world :0

Riot Kitty said...

GT: LOL! You're in good company ;)

The first one - I'd imagine it was saying it aloud to oneself :-)
