Meanwhile, back at the playground...

I went back to work after being out sick yesterday, and ended up wishing I'd stayed another day. No, not because the the workload was stupid heavy (I expected that).
My seriously annoying deskmate (the party-thrower and booze-seller) told us that her teenage daughter (the one the party was for) took and hid her phone and in the process lost her keys. She said the girl wouldn't tell her until she solemnly promised she wouldn't get mad (I don't know about you, but my BP starts rising every time a conversation starts that way). She told us she's going to keep her promise (not -- she's mad). But she's going to wait until the girl thinks she's out of the wood and then "I'm going to get her back good."
Is it just me, or is she being as childish as her kid? Whatever happened to "I am your parent, you messed up and this is your consequence?" If she was mine, she'd be grounded AT LEAST until she paid for a new set of keys.
I went through some bad depression Sunday and Monday. I'm trying to get my mood back up. Watching Chopped right now. I've had some enjoyable Facebook interaction with the host, Ted Allen, and several of the judges. Okay, it's probably silly, but I squeal like a teenager when I get a Facebook or Twitter reply from any of them!
Time to think about dinner. Hmmm...
