Friday Freestyles: The Angry Cat Edition

Look at this beautiful glass staircase.

No, look at the CAT on this beautiful glass staircase.

That is a beautiful staircase. But I am looking at the cat.

Angry-eyed. Mouth downturned.

Such an angry cat. Much more surly than Oscar-Tyrone. Much more.

He has that look that whispers "I DARE YOU to say something to me. I DARE YOU."

Describes my mood. I've been looking like that angry cat right there.

Oh well. Glad it is Friday. And I have a three day workweek next week.

WHY did I not take the full 2 weeks off for Christmas? O_o

And You know, I actually would not have minded working this Christmas, seeing that me and my sister Kentucky are not going on a vacation for Christmas.

Sidenote: Kentucky is a PUNK. I think she trying to vacation for $100. You need at least a grand to do what you gotta do, and do it right. I think she wants to go one county over to Decatur or something. She must wanna take a trip to Stone Mountain Park. Humph.

Anyway, this means I can freely work... But I got caught looking CRAZY last year, because I was working and everybody was off. Looking CRAZY.

I was looking like that cat for real last year: steely eyed. Angry. Mouth downturned.

Not this year, babes. I am OFF. 3 day workweek this week coming up.

And next Wednesday cannot get here fast enough. I will not be coming in at 10 in the morning. I will get here at 5:30 in the morning so I can get the heck out of dodge.

But alas, as of now, I will work hard. And I am glad for the upcoming weekend.

CowgirlCre is not at work today. I have no one to talk to. So I went to the other building and harrassed the cheese out of my former secretary. She is still giving me the hard eyeroll after I snatched a bag of open chips off her desk and started munching on them.

(Yes, I was that bored).

I got in trouble this week. With a coworker. Let's just say I'm being talked about. "Certain people"don't like my attitude. I use to be such a nice person. Whatever. I ain't apologizing for not being a gossiper or backbiter. If that is what it takes for me to be accepted then throw me out the window, babes. If that is what it takes for me to be considered a nice person, well, I'll just be considered bad. That is fine. But I don't accept that. Why? Cuz of this:

Quote of the Week: "It ain't what others think of you, it's what you think of yourself that truly matters."

*Spray painting that in red blood bright red paint on my cubicle wall*

You know what I think of myself? LadyLee is nice! LadyLee brings joy! LadyLee is a blessing! LadyLee is a help to those in need! LadyLee is a source of encouragement! LadyLee is your friendly neighborhood Original Oldgirl!

Yes indeed!

Okay, that's the lane I'm driving in. Anything else and I am looking at you like that angry cat is looking at you in the picture above. Do not waste my time and space with craziness.

A coworker bought some lunch in for me today. She had been speaking with me about the whole vegetarian thing a few months ago. And even though I am bootleg about it, she says I was her main source of encouragement in trying it out.


Her and her husband made a change a few months ago.

This chick... man, she does all kinds of research on their meals and what-not (Uh, I am bootleg. I will sautee veggies and keep it moving these days)... but she brings me the most WONDERFUL lunches -stews and soups, stuff with pumpkin and chickpeas in it. And it be GOOD-T!!

WOW. I am thankful for that.

That was the highlight of my week. Such kindness drowns out the tomfoolery.

Alas, I won't be looking like the Angry cat this weekend!

You all have a fine fine weekend!

On purpose!
