Summer Break ... for 1 week

So the List has been on hiatus for a while. I was home all last week for my summer vacation, pathetic I know ... a single week to enjoy the summer. These were the highlights of the trip:
  • Riding bikes with Joey
  • Hanging out at Alan and Lindsay's new house
  • Dave Matthews concert
  • Surviving Griffon
  • The 5+ hour drive it took to get from Fairfax to Newport News ... sike

You're so dumb

The single flaw of the Red Cross is that fact that I am forced to work with one of the most annoying people I have ever met. I have no idea how he got the job, and it amazes me that some one thought that hiring him would be a good idea/ benefit to the program. These are just some of the reasons why he annoys me:

  • he chews food like a cow without teeth --- worst and loudest noises imaginable
  • he has an obsession with the paper shredder
    • he jams the paper shredder --- constantly, and I mean multiple times a day ... who does that?
    • he goes out of his way to shred every single piece of paper that crosses his path ... on more than one occasion I have thrown something in the trash and he has retrieved it in order to send it through the paper shredder ... who does that?
    • he sends staples and paperclips through the shredder constantly.
    • he jammed the shredder last week and thought it would be a good idea to unjam it with his work badge ... hahaha --- he shredded his badge.
  • calls me dumb directly or indirectly at least 6 times a day
  • the paper cutter: he makes the simplest of things as annoying as possible ... when he uses the paper cutter he slams down the blade like he is operating a guillotine. I cringe because I don't want to be there when he chops off he hand, and I'll have to deal with it.
  • is the poster child for brown nosing
  • picks his nose constantly
I swear I'm not making this stuff up
  • he whistles ALL the time
  • in addition to the constant whistling, he now attempts to hum ... but he can't, his 'humming' is more like uncomfortable moaning ... it's weird
  • his personality is the definition of "blah"
  • when he is on the computer, he taps the mouse (or attempts to unsuccessfully) to the beat of the music.
  • he slam doors ... we go through doors constantly at work and he slams them every single time he walks through a doorway ... you'd think a person would catch on after a couple times, but evidently he hasn't ... I cringe every time he leaves the room.
  • Remember when Buckwild was called out for her fake ghetto accent on Flava of Love? Toolshed suffers from the same disorder --- he can go from NOVA white kid to uneducated gangster in 0.5 seconds, wtf?
People like him are the reason why road rage exists and why normal people go postal.

Half empties

I have ADD when it comes to shampoos and conditioners ... I get bored with them before they are empty, so I prematurely replace them. My current shower situation:
  • Empty Sunsilk Conditioner
  • 1/4 bottle of Sunsilk Shampoo
  • 1/4 bottle of Herbal Essence Shampoo
  • 1/2 bottle of Aussie Shampoo
  • 1/2 bottle of Aussie Conditioner
  • 1/3 bottle of Sheer Blond Rinse Out Treatment ... I don't even know exactly what it is/ does ... it just smell good ... and was on sale (of course)

Laws of Health

I had to go through Junior Red Cross Journals at work this past week ... one of the things that was all the rage in the late 1920s and early 1930s was the "Laws of Health." While I'm sure it was serious subject matter back in the day, I found most of them trivial and entertaining:
  • Wash hands always before meals
  • Brush teeth and hair night and morning
  • Breathe through your nose
  • Windows open night and day
  • Play in the open air as much as you may
  • Early to bed - 10 hours sleep - & early to rise
  • Wash all over with soap and warm water as often as you can
