Rant VIII: The Reckoning

That's hard. :( My aunt had to do that after 3 previous miscarriages. The baby who almost made it to term was cremated, and she wants to be buried with her ashes. She has one son, and not surprisingly, they're both protective of him.

Can you blame them? He's a medical marvel!

 
My grandmother died last night.

I hate to say it but it's about time. 3 years ago she was given 9 months to live. She hasn't eaten in nearly 3 weeks and hasn't has water in 5 days, baffling doctors.

Sad stuff...yet relieving.
 
My work is so pissing me off. They keep piling more work on and I keep telling them I can't get it done but they keep piling more. My leads refuse to do their job and actually do some of the work themselves so I am expected to help other departments even though I am swamped as it is. Now with the way my contract is set up I can and will help people with their work but I have my own work to get done and I don't see why I should be held responsible for work being behind when it is not my work. Yes, they asked me to help the new guy try to get it done but I have been running around trying to get my work done as well as several other peoples work and I just don't have the time to get it all done. I finally got fed up today and told my main lead that I want a meeting right away.
 
If they tell you to "work smarter, not harder," tell them you'd like to see how well they work with their vision obscured by their scrotal sac.

I hate my friends when drunk. Mostly because one of them is a complete light-weight. He actually purposely spilled beer because "There was foam at the top." FOAM IS BEER YOU TWIT! Just because its cheap doesn't mean you have to fuckin' waste it.
 
Damn fuckin' straight! This guy is one of those guys who could never handle his alcohol...but still acts like he can handle his alcohol. Don't know why my friend puts up with him.
 
So, what you're saying here is that you're upset at someone because they can't drink as much as the rest of your friends?

No, he made his cup the same liquid size as mine. He just spilled out some of the foam....and then pored more in. And then spilled more. I think he actually drank more than most of my friends WHILE doing this annoying pattern. My problem with this guy is he has no self control.

Does that work? If so I'm doing it next time.
I'm surprised more people don't know this. Yeah, get a little forehead grease on your finger, and ever so lightly run it across the top of any kind of liquid-borne foam (beer, soda, whatever). The foam will collapse in a cascade of failing surface tension until you're entirely bereft of foam.

I do it a lot. Wipe my finger on the side of my nose or something and then dip it in the foam and wait like 10 seconds.
 
I never wiped my finger on my forehead or my nose before using it to dispel foam. I just stick my finger in the foam or lay it across the top of the glass depending on whose drink it is.

Or if he fails to learn proper pouring, he can be an adult and wait one whole minute for the foam to decrease before guzzling it down, rather than being a child and intentionally spilling it, presumably on the table.

Seriously if I had a friend who spilled his beer intentionally to avoid sipping foam, I would not go out in public with that person.

I know...and I want to NOT be seen with this person. The problem is, he's friends with EVERYBODY I KNOW! So until every other person realizes how dumb he is I'm stuck with him. Ces la vie I guess.

If he refuses to become an adult, he could always use a straw.

My hair is purple.

I wanted a change from my almost platinum and wanted to go dark copper/red. My hairdresser has made my hair red before and it was awesome.

MY HAIR IS POPSICLE PURPLE!!!!

She is going to try and fix it in the morning....FML
 
Am I the only one who's going to say you should just....you know, enjoy the foam? Not from cola or something, but beer? The foam is a different presentation of the taste; it allows you to taste some of the more subtle tastes in a beer better than the drink. Some Belgian beers are proud of having a substantive, big, long-standing head of foam :confused:

Also, slap that guy around with a wet trout. It does wonders.
 
Why do I have friends who do not understand political satire or irony? Yes, I know that Michele Bachmann article sounds like it's some hair-brained thing she would do or say, but that is the point of satire! It's making fun of her idiocy. The fact that you don't get that makes me irritated and sad.

That sounds awesome!

..though you obviously don't like it.
 
The days are getting shorter, the nights are getting colder, and the leaves are dropping off the trees like they have weights attached to them. I'm not ready for winter.
Anyone some place warm want a roommate?
 
I went for a walk this night with my friend and my brother. When we got back to my friends house my friends sister said that 4 guys fitting our description(even though there were only three of us) were throwing rocks at cars. So either there are 4 guys identical to us in clothing throwing rocks at cars or the Folsomites just called the police and made shit up about us. Either way, can't walk around at night around there any more.

Fix what? What is there to fix? That sounds fucking rad.
 
I've never made it a point of stopping people I didn't know to compliment them, but one girl at college had purple hair in an interesting cut. Had to tell her I loved it.
