Lady you can bitch all you want but policy is policy. Just because you scream and throw a fit doesn’t mean it’s going to change for you. Temper tantrums might get you your way with that dumbass who bought you that hugeass ring you kept pushing into my face and that ridiculous fur coat but it doesn’t do anything with me. So why don’t you just cover up your fake tits, pull out that expensive as hell wallet, filter through those three dozen credit cards and just show me your damn id so that I can serve you your glass of wine and get on to another table. And when you get home? Take some of that money to buy yourself some manners and class. I am not getting paid enough to put up with this bullshit. I’ve seen skeezy drunk assholes who behave better than some of the women out here.

Could someone help us solve a family debate? Cooking in bacon grease, is it or is it not normal? Will and I both grew up with it, Nico has apparently just noticed for the first time that's how I cook (what else are you supposed to cook eggs in?) and thinks we're both crazy.

What in the actual hell? Seriously? Someone tell me that there’s some weirdass tradition in California of pranking waitresses by accusing them of trying to hit on your boyfriend by asking what he’s ordering. Because if not? This girl I waited on today needs a serious reevaluation of her relationship. And possibly her sanity because she went OFF on me for asking what he wanted to order. I had a moment where I thought she was actually going to physically attack me with her coffee mug and no thank you. I don’t care if it has been sitting in front of you long enough that it’s not scalding anymore. I don’t want your coffee all over me.

Also if you are that damn concerned about your boyfriend cheating that you think he might hook up in the back of a diner with a waitress at noon? First - fuck you for thinking so little of someone you’ve never even met before. Second - why are you going to keep seeing someone you CLEARLY don’t trust? Have some damn self respect and ditch him. Or quit attacking waitresses and calling them sluts when they ask “And for you sir?” Because A)They’re just doing their JOB and B) no one wants spit in their food. I wouldn’t do that but I know some servers who would.

Well, finally got around to buyin' some Halloween candy for the little runts in the neighborhood - but not for the not so little ones that think they can get some free candy. My cutoff is ten years old ya' freeloaders.

Just wonderin' how long I can hide this stash before Peter tries eatin' it all.

There is nothing more tedious than a board meeting where the board just shout needlessly at one another.

At what point do old white men stop craving the sound of their own voice? I'm considering replacing them all with graduate students, millennials. That would give them the shock of their life.

Hmm, if I purposely try to cause a heart attack and it happens, is that manslaughter?

I guess Mom's been deep cleaning where we keep the holiday things, because I just got a package full of some of my old Halloween costumes, minus I guess the more special ones, and the things I made in school. Which means I'm finally old enough, I guess, that their junk has become my junk. Am I supposed to hold on to this? Dispose of it to save Mom and Dad the guilt of doing it themselves? Call my sister and ask if she, also, received her own box of junk, and discuss what to do with it? Do I expect more of this in the future? No one told me about this part of adulthood. I live in an apartment, we don't have room for more of this.

This will be weekend #2 for Knott's Scary Farm. I love it! Every so often one of my fellow actors tries to scare me by ripping on a chainsaw or coming out of nowhere with a "scary" growl. I just tell them "Nice try" and blow them a kiss.

That being said, it really is a good time! You should come!

Stupid dreams woke me up early. I don't know how I haven't gone insane living in a tower by myself, my mother is gone a lot, but man do I have a lot of hobbies. I've basically painted the entire inside of the tower. I think Pascal is probably the reason why I haven't gone insane. But I did reach my 18th birthday and asked my mother to go see the lights in the sky and she basically sang a song about how I'm an idiot and she knows best and the outside world is evil.

But I did try singing the song in my dreams that activates the magic in my hair and I did see a bit of a glow! Progress.

Sometimes while I'm taking a break from homework or studying, I'll watch those satisfying videos on youtube, you know of perfectly timed animations or of things perfectly fitting into other things? Just to reset my brain before I can continue with whatever else I was concentrating on. Sometimes I forget I have it on when I go back to studying, and I look up to see that youtube has just continued on showing the next few videos in autoplay.

....Whoever did this? I hope you mistake sugar and salt next time you make coffee.

Some days, all you can do is make jokes about Brexit. Such as, how many Prime Ministers will it take to get us through Brexit? Though it's hard to tell if I'm laughing because it's funny, or laughing because it's gotten beyond ridiculous.

Parliament is more disorganized than my brother. And that is an accomplishment that I never thought was possible. My brother is the most disorganized person anyone could ever meet.

With preHalloween almost done, we move into Halloween, and then post Halloween, which leads into Yuleoween, and then PreHalloween again.

I kinda wanna throw a party this year.

We just found out what musical we're going to be doing at Uni this year, and it's based on one of my favorite movies! I am definitely going to be trying out for the main character, so everyone please wish me luck? Mom will finally get to see me as a law student, even if it's on stage. Elle Woods! I mean, if I get the part. I shouldn't get ahead of myself before auditions even start. But still, Legally Blonde the Musical! I'm super excited.

It's 2019, who is out there still making prank phone calls? As though every cell phone doesn't have caller ID on it. I can see who you are.

Also they sounded like they were eleven, who is giving eleven year olds cell phones?

The school is getting ready for that magical time of year again, or at least it always was the most magical time of the year for me growing up, the school book fair. I always saved my allowance as soon as it was announced every year so I could blow it all at once on one huge book spree... I'd probably still do the same now if our bookshelves weren't already overflowing, if I was going to be perfectly honest.

We were expecting the books we ordered for the sale to come today, and it was getting close to the end of the school day without any packages being brought to the library. We checked with the office, and there weren't any packages brought there by mistake. I figured it was just delayed and went on the website with our tracking number for it to say it had been delivered at noon today.

No, no it hadn't been.

I clicked on the link to talk to their AI, because fed ex apparently is too cheap to hire an actual representative to handle the chat. Maybe I should have called, I'm not sure, but I wanted to be able to do this without leaving the library if possible, in case it turned up. So I explained the problem, gave it the tracking number, and it told me that the package had been delivered and to please check where our mail is normally delivered. I said that was the problem, it had not been delivered.

And the computer's answer? "I'm about to show you an answer I have already given you. Would you like to see it? Yes No."

I am pretty sure I was just told by a robot to go fuck myself. I mean, is there any other way of taking that?

We FINALLY found the packages as the teachers were getting ready to take the kids to line up for their buses. The driver had decided that the back door, out in the open and far away from the library or even the office, was the perfect place to leave all the packages. No security at all, no one signing for them, out in the open for anyone to take. And I'm pretty sure given the amount? They were supposed to be signed for. They just didn't want to take them all the way inside. Not their problem, apparently.

I'm beginning to understand why, in my dreams, the Host Club just always bribes me with food to get me to agree to whatever nonsense they've got going on that week. I just sat here doing homework at the kitchen table and managed somehow to eat an entire pound and a half of fruit without even noticing that I was doing it.


I guess at least it wasn't chips or something.

My mom was born and spent the first 18 years of her life in Texas. My mom refuses to admit that she has an accent of any sort. Because Texan isn't one of the most noticeable dialects in the United States or anything like that. Have you ever watched someone who has, and doesn't admit they have, an accent try to talk to AI? Please Mom, please continue telling me how it's the cable company's fault that their system keeps sending you to the wrong department.

That being said, maybe they shouldn't have ever changed the old menu where you just pressed numbers.

Well at least I can cross a job off the list of things Grandma will be worrying about when I call her later. So I found this website written down on a receipt at the restaurant and figured that I'd check it out. What is this some kind of local group therapy forum?
