Extra Whinyless No Whining Wednesday

Today's No Whining Wednesday post is going to shock you!  You should probably make sure you're sitting down.  If you have a nervous condition or startle easily, you may not want to read this.  Are you ready?  Are you SURE?  Ok, don't say I didn't warn you...

Thirteen is being helpful and is only barely getting on my nerves.

I know, right??  None of you saw THAT coming, did you?  Me either!  I don't know if she changed medications or has just finally settled into the job and relaxed a bit or if I've finally gotten used to her, but I've noticed that the last few weeks (I don't know how long it's been - I have no concept of time) she really doesn't seem to bother me.  She asks questions still, but not stupid questions and she doesn't babble about Robert Pattinson or fucking Twilight, so there's a huge improvement right there.  Plus, you can ask her to do anything and she'll just do it.  It's awesome!  She doesn't question it or complain, she just does it.  It's so cool!  We're working on a giant, icky project our boss gave us and she whined a bit about how stupid it is (and she's not wrong!), but she buckled down and did it and didn't bug me once.  I'm gonna' give her a sticker tomorrow if she keeps up the SUPER attitude!

So, yeah, that's pretty noteworthy, right?  Hmm, what else is going on?  Not much.  Life in 2010 is pretty much like 2009.  I still have my Christmas tree up, which really shouldn't surprise anyone.  Um, what else?  I've been watching "The Wire" and it's good, but I'm not blown away.  Uhhhh, what else...

Oh , here's some more of those things to be happy about from that calendar:
  • Picnics around the fireplace
  • Using chopsticks
  • Chocolate fondue
  • Commonsense folk sayings
  • Sea monkeys
  • Pockets of tranquility (which I originally read as "tranquilizers" - I like mine better.)
  • A terrific hair day
  • Lyrics sung incorrectly
  • A glassed-in sun porch (which I think some people call a "Florida Room" - how cute is *that*?)
  • Short naps
What else?  Oh YEAH, that boy?  He's coming to visit me this weekend!  Hugegianthappyface!

What's going on with you?  Did you have a good New Year's Eve?  Has your 2010 been good so far?

Happy No Whining Wednesday!

Well, other than the fact that Monday didn't magically turn into Friday this week, I'm good. I was really excited sending out packages yesterday. Oh, and spectaculartastically excited that you're entertaining this weekend.

You don't holla no more. I am mad with you and cannot be not whiny. Dammit.

Ooh, I've got to get me a pocket full of tranquilizers. I think everyone would be happier.

Yay for boy visits! Could it be, would it possibly happen, maybe, somehow we might actually get know...I'll just use the initials...SS??!!??

Happy NWW.

I love chopsticks. Also chocolate fondue.

For the longest time I sang that song from Jesus Christ, Superstar as "What's up boss, tell me what's-a happening", despite the fact that the NAME of the SONG is "What's THE BUZZ". Yep. Also, Tim likes to make up his own terrible, terrible song lyrics to songs that already exist. Sometimes they're hilarious, but more often, they're really, really gross. It's kind of awesome. (My friend Christine's fiance Ashley does that to an extent too, but all his lyrics involve inserting kittens: "Kittens, on my shoulders, make me happy...")

Happy No Whining! And Yay for boy-visits!

I love you. But I hate everyone else.

I was FREAKING out earlier about my current phone issues (see my FB status) and once PB talked me down from my ledge of rage, I felt really sheepish b/c I remembered it's NWW. I thought "oh no, I already whined on FB. I never whine on FB and I did it on a Wednesday. FAIL"
So I fail. But once I stopped fuming I had this thought: "It's just a phone. I can deal with this."

So I've stopped whining? I guess? So that's something.

I don't let NWW affect my FB, it doesn't seem right. I mean really, if you can whine/bitch/moan on FB, then what good is it, really?

Lainey said...

Thanks for playing, guys! AvB, I'm totally going to start adding "kittens" to songs - hahahaha - LOVE IT!

Now, I have to go find my pocketful of tranquilizers, so I can get over the disappointment of that boy's flight being canceled. Giantyuckysadface.
