Things that irritate me/or I irritate other people with –

Adam – We have this ongoing very annoying argument about the phrase ‘it’s a six and half a dozen’. I say ‘it’s a six and two three’s’. He tells me that it’s not right and it should be the six and half a dozen. While I say the phrase itself just backs up the whole argument which is IT’S ALL THE BLOODY SAME!

(I miss having him at work at the moment. I mean who really needs a 6 week holiday from work when I NEED SOMEONE TO GO TO LUNCH WITH!

Sleepover Boy/Friend – He finds it annoying when people say ruin as a single syllable word (roon), romantic without the t (romanic) and papers instead of newspaper. So I tend to say these things to annoy him. Sometimes in the single sentence – it tends not to make much sense but it’s worth it to see the look in his eyes for it.

The wind – I don’t know what it is about wind that makes me so cranky but it’s an irrational hatred for……well just the wind really. It messes up my hair, it blows my skirt around, it makes cigarette breaks annoying and stressful and it just fucks me right off. And yes, it has been a while but thanks for asking.

My friends at the moment – My sister and I went to a dinner/drinks thing at Beth’s on the weekend and it was just drama after drama. There was an argument with someone walking out; there was a possible break up with attempts to make the other person jealous. Look, I do not care. I came for food and alcohol and to catch up with my friends. If you’re in a weird mood don’t come. If you’re sad and down don’t come. If you’re pissed about something stay at home. I mean don’t subject other people to your shit if you’re going to ruin it for other people, do what you’re supposed to do and stay at home and get drunk and miserable on your own.

Dieting – I’ve put on a couple of kilos so I had a nice healthy low calorie dinner last night before making a batch of cookies and eating half of them. Kids, this is the way not to lose weight.

Things that don’t irritate me include finally being able to get a new mobile phone when my contract finally ran out (hello lovely), cancelling all plans for this weekend so I can have a moochy weekend (after a couple of months of heading out both weekend nights I’m having a tantrum and putting my foot down) finally feeling like I’m being effective at work rather than just you know being a stressed out eye twitchy kitten.

I found out that my old manager has resigned so I’m having dinner and drinks with the old work kids to find out the gossip. I like to gossip and bitch about people far more than I’d like to admit. But considering he won’t be doing any of this crap anymore to any of the guys I used to work with then I’m going to relish every minute of it.

And probably drink too much on a school night.

Good times.

Grump:

The saying is:
“Six of one a half dozen of another.”

If you want you can leave the ‘a’ out if you want.

Grump – Gaaahhh! But the whole meaning of the phrase is that they’re the same thing no matter how you say it – a half a dozen is the same as six of one or two times three.

It’s the whole point of the phrase!

See Grump, see what happens when it’s windy and I have to have this discussion?

Not good.

Mr. Guinness:

Now that’s the Lucy I know and love!!
So it goes m’love, just another day in the world. The good news is that as you mellow (age) you get more comfortable with yourself as a person.
So is Adam a “friend” or, “a friend” either way if he makes you happy it works for me. 🙂
And you are right, there are times we get into petty “tiff’s” and it’s really not the point that the world hinges on, just a “pissy” moment in our lives.
Be good, ( and if you can’t then enjoy yourself!!!)

Alec – Oh no, no Adam’s an old friend who hired me for my current job. But he’s overseas travelling at the moment, and as I’m not terribly social, I don’t have people to go to lunch with.

Well, people who I want to be around while I’m eating.

And if it’s irritation and pissy you want you know you’re in the right place 🙂

yeah the wind sucks balls. Smart advice about not going out when your issues are paying up.

Going out 2x a week is about right for me, but I could have people round a couple more nights at least.

Hey, tell us how your house is going.
