I'm boring.

Hey guys.

Not much going lately besides work I'm afraid, and you know what they say:"All work and no play makes for one boring-ass blog." I have worked ever increasing amounts of overtime for the past four weeks and today I feel icky. However, I am at work because last year I got yelled at and told I was going to lose my job for taking too many sick days after taking a grand total of three sick days.
If you need me, I will be the one in the freezing office,
wrapped in two sweaters and a coat, curled up in the fetal
position under my desk hoping for sweet, merciful death.
Or at least a nap.
Also, my iPhone has been freaking the fuck out for no goddamn reason for the past few months. Yes, I restarted it. Yes, I updated it. Yes, I disconnected and reconnected to wi-fi a billion times. Yes, I sang it the song of its people and sacrificed a virgin to try to appease its gods. It was all for naught however, because last week it kicked its plan for inexplicable vengeance into high gear. It refused to open Facebook, Pinterest, or my email, and I had a 50/50 shot at getting it to open and play music. It would sit there and say it was working, load a blank screen and then BAM! Back to the motherfucking start screen for you, asshole.
I'm getting the feeling that you are upset.
So this past weekend, I replaced its bitch-ass! Meet my new phone, the Nokia Lumia 920 (I have named it Stumpy, as I do with every phone and flash drive I own):
New and improved STUMPY!!
It's the new Windows phone and I have to say that I really like it so far (no, I am not being paid to say any of this). It works really well with Windows 8 and putting music on and taking it off is SO MUCH EASIER than it was with my iPhone. Seriously, iTunes and I are mortal enemies and I hate it's stupid fucking face. Anyway, the Lumia 920 is also half the price of the new iPhone 5 with way more features. WINNING.

This isn't to say that my iPhone has given up its plans for revenge. In my efforts to transfer all of my music to my new phone, I first had to sync all the new music I purchased on my iPhone to my computer. It is refusing to do so. Touché, iPhone. Touché.
But...I didn't download that app...
You win this day, iPhone. But vengeance will be MINE!

Okay, here's what I would do regarding the work situation. If you have any friends there, warn them ahead of time to be armed with disinfectant wipes. THEN, get in really early tomorrow and cough all over everything. It might be tricky, but try to specifically target whoever is in charge of the "we'd rather you come to work even if you're sick" policy. 'Cause, yeah, they totally deserve to get sick from you.

I don't know what the actual sick policy is because there is no employee handbook here. Because the rules and their consequences should be secret until you break one...?

Anyway, the person who spoke to me last time is kind of a power hungry dick (we'll call him Bob) who had a beef with the person who brought me into the company (whom we will call Tom). Of course, since Tom was let go under very suspicious circumstances (ahem, orchestrated by Bob) two weeks after I started, all of Bob's rage was transferred to me, because that totally makes sense in the adult world. But since Bob is in charge of my department and HR is essentially useless, I am the only one stuck with this lovely policy. Because of Bob's rage boner.

I have a dream of owning an up to date phone... But tmobile won't let me out of my contract unless I hand them my first born child. And I'm kind of attached to her.

Damn them...
