1. I’m wearing red nail polish at the moment and I feel a bit whorish.

I know wearing red nailpolish does not make me a whore, but I’m used to french polish. Anyway, yes, nails=easy.

2. We have Australia Day here on Tuesday so I’m taking Monday off and taking a lovely 4 day weekend. Did I just have 2.5 weeks off over the Christmas break? Why yes, yes I did. Am I still sick from this bronchitis 2 weeks after first getting it? Why yes, yes I am. So I’m taking 4 days off because I can.

3. I received one of the rudest work emails I think I ever have in my career earlier this week. I won’t get into too many details but one of my favourite parts is when he opens with –

“Lucy, Excuse me, but LISTEN!!! “ 

And proceeds to tell me I am useless because I do not understand that HE. IS. RIGHT AND. I. AM. NOT. But my favourite is when he ends it with “Kind Regards”. Because when you’re tearing someone a new arsehole one mustn’t forget their manners. 

I waited a couple of days before responding because the only replies I could think of centred around telling him to fuck himself. And while my work can be frustrating sometimes I love my job. The worse part is when I escalated it to our big boss he asked me to take a look at the problem, so I had to help him rather than just deleting and moving on. So I wrote him a polite response that included my favourite –

“I understand your frustration with this situation xxx and we will do our best to look into this for you, however the tone of your email was unacceptable and against the [company name] values and behaviour of Respect.”

He’s a manager so to be reminded that he was going against company policy wasn’t good apaprently. It was nice to come in this morning to an apology. Knob.

4. Celibacy update: Because Mark has been overseas since before Christmas I realised that technically I could wipe 4 weeks off my 3 month count. But, I am dedicated to the cause (I don’t know what the cause is, but there’s a cause) so I’m not counting it.

Until I’m 4 weeks until the end and desperately need to make out with someone and I may just use those 4 weeks as my get out of jail free card.

5. I am tired. It’s been my first full week back at work since before Xmas. Damn you holidays for making me soft.

6. And the news that I got early this morning from Beth and DJ, those crazy kids are overseas at the moment and they got engaged last night. My little chicken is getting married, it is fucking insane and she is already freaking out (she does not particularly like commitment, and no, don’t ask why she’s getting married then.) Can’t wait until they’re home so we can celebrate.

And seriously if I do not get made bridesmaid in this wedding, since I’ve never been one, I will totally cut Beth.

I love having “hooker nails”. It’s even better if you have the toenails to match – then you’re ready for full on hooker time! 🙂

I get rude emails all the time, but never to that extent. What a dumbass. Totally shamed himself.

Celibacy. You’re crazy. Enough said lol.

Matching hooker nails FTW! (I.e. I got bored and painted toes and fingers harlot red.)

And yeah, celibacy is totally lame. But for me still ‘involved’ with very unsuitable boys years on is even lamer….

Ps – When are you going to start blogging again chicken?

Hey Lucy! I just spent the last hour catching up on my reading! 🙂 I recently bought some dark purple nail polish and it makes me feel all “fancy” lol. Good luck with the celibacy!

OMG you actually used your organisation’s values statement to accomplish something meaningful. Srsly you could be the first person ever to do that.
