obsessed

Tuesday Oct 23, 2007

With this peachy new job of mine there’s one downside – my daily commute has doubled. When I was working in the city at the last job I’d leave my house 7 a.m. and walking into my office at 7:30 a.m. To me a half an hour door to door commute is ideal.

This job is on the sunny North Shore, and not like a convenient just over the Harbour Bridge North Shore. Like further in meaning my commute is now 2 hours a day. This sucks balls. In theory I justify it with “it’s just more reading time”. But as I’m now going through 5 books a week the buying books and going to the library each week is getting out of control.

Plus because I get Mum lectured by my new female manager if I stay after 5, I’ve started coming into the office earlier and earlier. That way when she walks in at 7:30 I can be all,”No, I just walked in” and she’s happy and does need to know I’ve been in since 7. But if you do the math the 7:00 starts, with the 1 hour commute each way, means I am getting up way too fucking early.

I’ve gotten around this by changing the time on my alarm, so when my alarm goes off at 6:00 a.m. I feel happy because 6? She’s not too bad. But deep down the actual time is 5:30 and I can no longer deny this. Because I am tired.

I did sweet f.a all weekend; it was so nice I wanted to kiss it on the mouth. I also got spoon out of the Sleepover Boy which is like getting blood out of a stone, like really, really difficult to do. Like, have been trying to get spoon from him for the last 3 years and nada, bubkus, zip.

I’ve gotten fat recently, well by fat I mean I’ve put on a couple of kilos. And by that I mean I think I have because I don’t own scales. But follow me here. So the liteneasy stuff has started again, and I’ve taken to bring salads to work.

And look, even when you’ve got grilled prawns and marinated chicken breast with the salad? Still salad. Still bland. I’m dreaming about flavour and hot chips and gravy and even sushi. Who dreams about sushi? I mean really, who throws a shoe?

I’m obsessed with my 10 year reunion after Chesty went to hers the other day. Now, keep in mind mine isn’t until next year and I don’t even know if there will be one, but I am completely obsessed. Obsessed. And I don’t even really want to go beyond satisfying some curiousity and didn’t even like most of the people I went to high school with and the ones I did like are still around (Beth and Meg), I have no bad memories about school and had fun yet I’m obsessed with the people and what they’ve been up to.

This perplexes me. And I’m hoping this obsession will actually just fade away because really.

So yeah beard obsessions and 10 year reunion obsessions. Which leads me to the conclusion I must be more tired than I thought or all of this wind has made me so cranky I’m suffering from some weird OCD thing.

Either way, not too bad.

I am totally guilty of doing the 30 minutes fast alarm clock thing. It makes me feel better. Some people say it’s pointless since I know it’s fast but hey, whatever works right?

And yay for spoon! 🙂

Mr. Guinness:

Lucy,
Oh to be in Australia and just say, “Come on, let’s go get a pint and talk.”
Your sense of honesty, and forth rightness (if that’s a real word) are encouraging to me. I deal with the “younger generation” every day and besides being real proof that there is no hope of people just being honest and open, I thouroughly enjoy your honesty in “blogland”.
Life is a very tricky road, and before blogging all we had was the traditional “support channels”,…now we have the world as our support, and we learn that we are not the “odd one”, or the “sixth finger on a glove”, but we are in fact tomorrow.
Sorry, your blog,…my rant. Enjoy and live life!
I agree, who ever in thier right mind dreams of sushi! If I ever met someone who does,…well, suffuce it to say I would leave, …like yesterday. Gimme the fries’n gravy! Somethings just don’t get any better!

I ventured into the bathroom when we were out at the bar the other night. Amidst the usual graffiti someone had scrawled hugely “SPOON POWER”. It made me lol.

I took a picture of it, of course. 🙂
