Not Thinking

I worked overtime today. This is not something I normally do. But I felt guilty because I'd missed a bit of work this past month due to illness and coming in would help make my team's numbers better for the month.

And then after working I decided to go to the mall and buy a shirt. What the fuck was I thinking? I couldn't find shit that fit right. I've decided that I'm not buying any new clothes til I lose 30 pounds. I did buy 2 new bras and some granny panties to wear so you won't be able to see my nakedness if my clothes start getting holey before it's time to buy new ones.

When I got home Sweety was looking at my purchases. And he put my new drawers on. That means that between my weight gain and Sweety's weight loss we can wear the same underwear. If I'd have known that, I'd have saved my money and just started wearing his. The ones he put on had polka dots and a sparkly cherry on the front. Unfortunately, I wasn't quick enough to capture it on film.

Got paid this morning and am broke again but it feels good. I am able to mark one of my little bills off my list because it's paid off now. My plan is to pay off my credit card before the summer and then charge it back up when I go on vacation this summer.

We have our regularly scheduled trip to Oklahoma/Texas planned and then we're making time for the blogger/hnt get together. I don't think Sweety is too crazy about the location but he's coming with me. I think he'll have fun. He'll have more fun with me than he would sitting at home wondering what the hell I was doing by myself in the big city.

My work buddy, PM (aka Titus in the comments) has gotten a new job so he'll be leaving soon. I'm going to miss having him around but I'm happy for him because he's going to a better place. (gee, that sounded like a eulogy.) When I worked overnights I worked with him every night but since starting this new schedule we're on different teams and I only see him a couple of times a week. I'm glad that I haven't been working with him too much the last few months. This way his leaving won't cause as much separation anxiety as it would have awhile back.

Tiny dog drew blood when Sweety was harassing her the other night. I think she's developed a taste for it.

What kind of trouble could you possibly get into here in Chicago with me?

Chickie said...

Joey Polanski - Maybe that's why he took them off. I thought he didn't like the color...

Anne Arkham - Maybe you could bake some of those holiday cookies?

I think it'll be neat to be in such a big place. I will probably get mugged. I feel a mugging on the horizon.

Where is that thing being held? I mean in what city? That's a kind of lovely idea, isn't it..to have a LIVE meeting...It's like reunion of sorts...

You are just too funny dear Chickie..I mean...Tiny Dog and her taste for blood! LOL, LOL, LOL!!!
Love it!

Joey Polanski - He did kinda stretch it out. It looks more like a tomato than a cherry now.

OOLOTH - I told Sweety to watch out because now that Tiny has had a taste, she'll be back for more!

Man, I'm going to miss you too but heck that's what e-mail and cellphones are for. You can continue to expect getting calls from me, even if only because every once in a while, I have this need to annoy somebody and hey, that's what friends are for too.

Don't worry about the mugging; I'll be gentle.

Zube Girl said...

Hmm...Sharing underwear. That's an idea. We now share pajama bottoms because mine, are, uh, shrinking for some odd reason!

Chickie said...

Titus - And the nice thing is, with your new job, you'll have all kinds of interesting people to tell me about!

Anne Arkham - You are too kind. And you use semi-colons!

Zube Girl - The laundry gremlin in your house needs to have his ass beat. Shrinking your stuff up like that! Hmph, he must not know that you're a Queen.

California Girl had a some shorts that she wouldn't get rid off until I tried them on and was actually able to button them shut at which point she promptly got rid of them.

P.S.: I plan on being in Chicago too.

MCB - Seeing him in my drawers was quite a wake-up call.

I can't wait to meet ya'll in person!
