Friday

Friday, November 06, 2009

It's Friday, and work is finally slowing down at my office. Things have been incredibly hectic and busy lately--working from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., and I CANNOT wait for the weekend.

I'm kind of p.o.'d right now, it's been a really rough week. My company is a sponsor of Chicago's Gay and Lesbian Film Festival Reeling, and one my contacts in Public Relations sent me VIP passes through inter-office mail. I was really looking forward to going to the events/films this week, but the mail room HAS LOST THE ENVELOPE. I am pretty annoyed about the whole thing, and really disappointed. They're calling around right now to see if they can track them down. I just hope they can find them before the day ends. :-(

I guess I just feel pretty tired and cranky right now after a really stressful work week--the lost tickets were really the straw that broke my back.

Trying to do good about eating better--I went out to lunch today at Chevy's, and had what I was going to order researched before hand. A low calories salad w/o the chicken (I'm a pescatarian), and then I try to order it, and apparently it can't be made w/o chicken. So I ordered a different salad with no chicken, it was good, but I got back to look up the nutrition count and it had 1400 calories--I'm counting it as a 1/2 serving, as I didn't eat all of it, and didn't have chicken with it, but still.

This is just a complaining, whining blog entry. Waaa waaa waaa. Lots of people out there have it worse off than me--don't have jobs, don't have the luxury to eat out at all, don't have employers cool enough to sponsor an LGBT event. I'm trying to feel lucky and positive, but coming up a bit short today.

    hang in there, it's not about eating perfectly on plan all the time, but doing the best you can. I hear you about having a tough time with substitutions, I throw a complete fit if I can't get food made my way, scene and everything. You're paying for it, why shouldn't they cooperate? Hope those tickets turn up for you, it's great that your company is so supportive of the community. Yay Gay!

    Your employers sound very cool! And sorry about the lunch, I did a short stint as a server at a similar chain (name rhymes with Shmapplebees), and other than the veggie pizza appetizer, the only substitute I could offer was extra broccoli in place of chicken on their pasta/rice dishes! Not bad, but there are far better vegetarian/vegan options out there.

    Anyways, hope your weekend perks up (do I need to go shank a bit** in the mailroom for you?), and don't feel too bad about the venting -- we all have stuff to get off our chests from time to time.

    And Boomalatty -- since it's officially less than 50 days to Christmas, the lights and holiday music and "White Christmas" marathons start.....now!
