miss grouch

i am grouchy! beware.

i can just feel the grouchiness. it’s pinching my eyebrows together and pulling down the corners of my mouth. it’s got a lot to do with the weather. it’s fucking hot out. there ain’t no other way to describe it.

stepping outside is like walking into a wall. the air is so thick with moisture and heat, it’s palpable. you feel it the instant you get outside, you break into a sweat. you move a little slower, talk a little lower– you don’t want to expend too much energy doing anything.

part of the grouchiness stems from getting up extra early this morning. i had to be to work by 8 am. blech! i am not a morning person and if i roll into the office at 9, people ask me what i am doing in so early.

but today was moving day. we are playing musical cubes, so jessica and i switched. i was sorta getting used to my exile. but now they’ve pooled all the graphic artists together in one section. since i am not a graphic artist, i got the boot.

but you know who is a graphic artist? ARTGEEK BOY!! wahoo. that makes me happy. so he’s gonna be all nice and close for me to make him love me. today he spoke to me for the first time and it was everything i could do not burst out into 13-year-old school girl giggles.

    I dig your site… I dig you!

    Too bad we can’t have coffee together… too bad for me, that is!

    We could have some fun talking about books, news, and things. Then again, perhaps it would be ME that would have the fun while you would be thinking of ARTGEEK BOY.

    It’s all for the better then, I guess.

    Good luck!

    That was some mighty fine false advertising, Jodi. Here I was expecting some bitter rant to make me feel better about my life, and you ended on some sort of giddy high note. Thanks. Thanks a whole lot.
