thursday thirteen

thirteen things i just don’t understand.

1. mirapex. have you seen these ads? it’s a pill that will suppress restless leg syndrome. um…what? but that’s not what i don’t understand. it’s the side effects that get me. are you ready? it will increase your desire to gamble and have sex. are you freaking kidding me? what the hell kind of pill will do that?!

2. why men make consistently more money than women in the workforce when both are in the same job with the same credentials. seriously. this really bothers me.

3. how i have become so unmotivated. i have had the hardest time getting back on the job search bandwagon. i have no idea what i want to do and i think that is holding me back from seeing just what is out there.

4. why hubby feels the need to tell me that i need to get in shape and tone up. um…i’m pretty little and am relatively fit. i’m 5 feet tall and weigh 105. i’m just fine, thank you very much.

5. how celebrities think going to rehab will solve all their problems. rarely any of them have actually been successful and staying sober. it’s such a joke to them, which just belittles those people who have successfully gone through treatment.

6. how it is the middle of the summer and it is only 61 degrees outside and has been chilly for most of this week. yesterday i even noticed some of the trees in town have already turned their leaves. in august.

7. why hubby’s family goes to the same 4 restaurants over and over and over again. seriously? it has gotten really old. and when i suggest going someplace new, it’s always a disaster because they seriously complain the whole time that it’s not like the places they normally go to.

8. why i am so freaking addicted to us magazine. i simply cannot go a week without buying a copy! maybe it somehow makes me feel better that i’m not leading a frivolous life. or maybe i secretly want to be like them. okay, so maybe not that.

9. why i was fired. i have no idea what i did. i know i make some mistakes, but good lord. i was i that bad that i couldn’t be communicated with? that is just completely unacceptable.

10. how such little animals ~ especially my cats ~ can poo so much!

11. how our on-demand cable just stopped working. it worked fine the other day and now it’s not working. um..did hubby watch too many john wayne movies? are we blocked now because of it? i really wanted to do a workout this morning. okay, so perhaps that’s a lie. but still…we pay for the on-demand service. it needs to be working. now.

12. how febreze really works. not only does this little bottle of wonder make my whole house smell fresh, it doesn’t leave an obvious i-just-sprayed-the-room-with-room-spray scent.

13. how there are women who do not embrace their age and instead insist on dressing like they are in their twenties, which only makes them look worse and so much older.

    I don’t understand why my neighbors let their puppies poo in front of my porch.. The pet walk area, complete with poo bags and waste receptacle is only 50 feet further away…

    Our On-Demand goes out a lot, too, and it’s so irritating!! And when it is working, it’s really slow.

    What’s the point of ON DEMAND if it doesn’t work when I want it to??
