You want nice? from ME?

Normally I would just tell anyone who says I'm too "negative" to fuck off and die, BUT, I just drank an iced mocha so I'm feeling cooperative and, well, maybe a little cheeky.

I used to post all of my info on earthquakes and the coming nuclear meltdown we are going to experience, but I stopped doing that because people just want nice. Although I can understand this (sort of), this isn't my personality. If I started talking about the wonderfulness that is my life, those close to me would conduct an intervention to get me off the crack. I'm just not the glass-is-half-full kinda girl. I'm the girl who looks at the glass and says..."hmm..not only is that glass 1/2 gone, but will it be enough to sustain me in a total martial law lockdown?" Yeah. Nice is boring to me. Its not that I don't think I'm blessed. I KNOW I am. I live in the greatest country in the world, I have a nice home, I have a loyal and romantic husband with a great sense of humor, I have 2 cute fuzballs and great job. I thank God every night for what I have. Do I have problems? Well, DUH. of course. Many things in the USA are totally fucked up - you did read about the baby who got punched in the stomach to death by its father the other day, right? You know we are at war, right? I have almost LOST my nice home more times than I care to count - and I'm about the most financially unstable person I know. My husband can be a complete dick from the word 'go' on certain occasions - and don't even get me started on the two little fuzzy fuckers I own and where they pee and poop and who they try to bite. My job? Yeah, its awesome, but don't think I don't have days where I want to jam a pen into my eye. or my co-worker's eye.

So, what I'm trying to say is that there are good things, and there are bad things. I haven't been sent to the looney bin yet, and I haven't gone postal, so I MUST be somewhat happy. Right? Right. Yes. I am. Just for the sake of argument though, and to satisfy some of my loyal readers, I will post 8 nice things. Just for you. Nobody faint, K?

1.) We bbq'd some exceptionally tasty food last night, and I brought some of the leftovers to work for lunch. It was so good, I'm thinking about eating right now at 9:07am.

2.) The camera we just bought (or should I say went into hock for) was a "surprise" happy Thursday gift from my hubby (who, yes, IS quite handsome) just because he loves me. He knows I'm not a diamond girl - he gets me toys! :)

3.) My boss came to me at noon last Friday and said this: "You have been working so hard - why don't you start your weekend early and go and enjoy the sun the rest of the day!" I wanted to kiss him and hug him.

4.) I will be celebrating 13 years of marriage on August 27th.

5.) The other day one of my co-workers, who is also my friend, told me that she is so glad we met and really enjoys having someone to "rant" with about life, and to workout with and have lunch with. She is a total sweetheart, and our lives are so similar it is crazy. She doesn't judge me, nor do I her - we just enjoy each other's company and appreciate the complete honesty we feel comfortable sharing. We believe the same things religion-wise, so we are always on the same page about things, and it is so great!

6.) Nothing bounced in my bank account today. Hooray!

7.) I have NO PLANS for this weekend and I'm so happy about it! I think I will stay in my PJ's and veg-out in front of the TV, and sleep, and eat and generally fuck off. Life is good!

8.) I have a mini-vacation coming up at the end of August. Just a week off, but I love time off to do nothing or whatever I want.

There!! Happy? ;-D

Vaya Con Dios, amigos!

Those are nice. But, yes don't keep this 'good attitude/warm and fuzzy' thing up or I'll have to arrange an intervention. It'd be a hassle. I'd have to fly BOA in from CA, try to tell Hole how to get to Sultan. And I just don't have that kind of free time.


I'm so damn funny.

Have a good weekend, girlie. Enjoy your R&R and general all around fucking off.
