Oh my gosh.. I'm sitting here laughing out loud to myself.
It's not pretty. A "middle age" lady sittin' alone on her couch with two kitties - laughing outloud at Cartoon Network 'cuz it's REALLY sorta funny when it's huge. hehehehe Can't wait till it gets the cable hook up - God knows how crazy I'll be then.
The kitties are doin' good. Little baby Sophie is the most laid back cat I've ever seen and I think that's why they're getting along. Baby is quite content to sit/sleep for hours in the same spot whereas the big pretty kitty doesn't sit still for 5 minutes. Ever.
So here's the deal with my boss in short form: A secretary in another department is "officially" my back up. We do nothing for each other when one of us is out, but still, we're a backup. She put in for vacation for the 2 days before Christmas weekend and 2 days after. I put in for the 24th on the same day. And I have seniority. And then my boss came to me at the end of the day Friday trying to persuade me to give up the day 'cuz the other lady is having a huge family gathering and relatives from all over in for the holiday (and continued to tell me details of the other lady's festive holiday plans).
So I told my boss that just because someone else has the blessing of a huge family doesn't make it any less special of a day for me, and maybe even a little more important in some ways - and THEN I pretty much called her a condescending bitch, got my stuff and walked out. I still haven't given her an answer. I'll most likely give up the day but the whole thing really pissed me off. She could let us both have that one day off. Anyway. I haven't stopped eating all day and tryin' to think what to have next. Any ideas?
