I love hearing from readers, not as much as I love wine, but a VERY close second!


Venting Session

I’m in a bad mood today. While I don’t have one specific reason, I have dozens that would suffice. Though for the sake of your sanity, I’ll list the top four.

Winter: I’m so over it! I’m sick of being cold; I’m tired of wet shoes and pants; I’m annoyed there is no decent parking because of snow drifts the size of my car.

Construction: The office suite next to mine has been in a state of construction for what feels like an eternity. It’s loud; It’s distracting; It’s dirty; It’s loud; I can’t walk down the hall without having someone in my way and also being in their way; Oh, and it’s LOUD!

Burns: I have a burn on my hand from attempting to make bread pudding. DISASTER! This was over a week ago and the burn is only getting worse. And yes, I’m applying Neosporin ALL THE TIME, but it’s still getting worse. I suspect I contracted a flesh eating disease from either a) the construction disaster or b) God.

Math class: Really, do I need to explain this? The fact I can’t log into the class because I own a Mac computer. How can an institution of higher education not have a system in place for both a Mac and PC. Totally and completely fucking insane. I can say fuck, I’m in a bad mood. In fact, I can yell it loudly, but you wouldn’t hear me because of the construction.

And yes, Mom, I know you raised me better, but frankly fuck being raised better.


  • That’s rough, I’m sorry.

    Just two more months and we can have spring at last. I can’t wait for winter to be over either because my car doesn’t like to start in the cold. And that worries me because I really don’t want to buy a new car.

  • Sometimes you just have to say: fuck. good for you. We all have days like that. I hope at least the bread pudding turned out good.

  • Yeah I couldn’t even get out of bed today so good for you for getting over that obstacle!!!

  • I heard about the mac problem from one of my students–you are right that it’s ridiculous. The snowdrifts taking up the parking lot are also ridiculous. In fact, there’s a lot of ridiculousness going around. I think we should all take a vacation while someone (else) looks into that.

  • you’ve got an intel-mac. Get Parallels! As far as the cold – you still need to get up on the snowboard, at least this way you can have one reason to like cold…

  • Your Mac probably has Bootcamp. Try that.

  • The construction use to be louder when they first started doing it. It’s actually a lot quieter now.

  • sra: Two months feels like two years right now.

    shad: Sadly the bread pudding looked like dog vomit when I finished. It was so terrible, in fact, a friend swore he’d never eat bread pudding again. Ever!

    lisa: I’d have killed to stay in bed, too!

    anon: You do realize that isn’t always the explanation for bad moods, right? RIGHT?!

    lisa b: Ridiculous. Seriously.

    ak: Done. Thanks to you! And I promised Mrs. AK I’d go this year. So I have to. She’ll take away my wine otherwise.

    anon: Crapcamp takes up too much space.

    eric: Liar. I cannot wait for them to leave.
