    Also on the Anti-List: Two Hispanic women at my job started giving me daily hugs. They don't know I'm trans, and I don't think they care.

    Anti-List: I did nothing to earn any of the support and love I am receiving... it's a gift.

    The List: The sound of my own voice. As you can see, I'm getting the look down, but I open my mouth and I want to projectile vomit.

    My doctor's office is on The List for failing to inform me that a 2 hour glucose tolerance test is of the fasting variety.

    I feel like I belong on The List for getting to a point where I need a 2 hour glucose tolerance test. My brain, ******* that it is, is chanting "IT'S ALL YOUR FAULT!" at me right now, and it's left me feeling angry and scared.

    Sick coworkers are on the list. I mentioned to her she sounds congested, and she replies, "yeah, I've been running a fever for the last 3 days". Get your butt home and take your germs with you. Do not come sit next to your pregnant coworker and spread your germs.

    I wish more people would use their sick days. Most of what you do at work can wait a few days, and that which can't can be covered by other people. I would rather be overwhelmed with her job, my boss' job (she's on vacation) and my job right now than be exposed to this fever.

    Camera repair is on the List I have to shoot a meet tomorrow and my lens is not back yet. It has been "in repair" since last week.
    Customer service phone trees are on the List. 45 min of listening to we will be with you soon followed by booting me out and telling me to look at the website. DUH! It gives me no information- no eta, no what is happening, have they touched it yet, is it toast?? I have a service plan that gives me a replacement if it is not fixable. I need my lens. Not happy. (And my old tactic encouraged by the camera dept of purchasing a lens and returning it if the other was fixable now is a no go 15% of 800-900$ is lotta $)

    I’d smell microwaved fish every day if in exchange people would stay home if they were sick. Or work from home.

    YUCK! We had someone who did this. (and KOH mixed with certain secretions smelled just like this. It was unkind to say the least!)

    People who can't make big (relatively) plans in a timely manner.

    My niece's bday was earlier this month, however, due to my bro being out of town for work, and then vacation, he and his fiancee were planning on this weekend (specifically, tomorrow). Talked with him Wed, he said Sat should be on the docket, dunno if at his place or our parents' place, would let me know. Heard nothing as of 11am Fri morn (yesterday). I went to a get-together for the college hockey, leaving my place at that time.

    Got home at 10pm, got a FB message from him, sent at 4pm. Meeting at (x) for dinner at 6pm, then hanging out at our house after. Call me.

    Well.....that didn't happen for obvious reasons. No call to my dumb phone, no text on the dumb phone, nothing else. *shrug*. I mean, I hate that I missed it, but what could I do? Get your sh* organized.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    Grad school begins on Tuesday (coursework already available)... and I have the Jitters. The List.

    I know I can do this, so why do I have these fears?

    Those jitters are natural and are a small price to pay for the opportunity you have earned. They show you care. Go for it.

    Once I got going on the introductory videos and stuff (syllabus and things), it's been a lot better.

    The new is always scary. Just go in there and kick its as-s.

    Grad school is without doubt the coolest thing you can ever do, so enjoy every microsecond of it. I am deeply envious.

    Are you doing one class at a time? That’s how I started. Sometimes I double up now after getting the hang of it

    Three. But they're only on Tuesday and Thursday, and since it's online, each class only "meets" live one day a week. The readings and work are up and you do them on your own time. I think I can handle it.

    Unless it's graduate B school, then it's just 13th and 14th grade.

    But in MT's case, I know it's not.

    We have a Home Warranty Company. I put in a call for a dishwasher issue. They're sending me a heating and air conditioning company that has an F raiting from BBB.

    Don't think so. Somebody is getting a call tomorrow.

    I really think home warranties are a scam.

    Good for the HVAC. The rest has been BS. We won't renew.

    UPDATE: Got a new competent! technician. He found a twist tie in the macerator that would make a funny sound when the blade hit it.

    $45 & we're done!!
