Where Snark Rules

"Boredom is an emptiness filled with insistence. " ~Leo Stein

It’s really fucking difficult to be on the phone making an appointment, while fielding IM’s from JB about whether or not I have the wrong bra size (which, for the record, I do), while trying to watch Oprah to figure out how to get my best bra and jean size, while looking at Nordstrom to make an appointment with a bra specialist, while looking at the jeans on Nordstrom, while fielding phone calls from my mother about going home for Happy Stuffing Day (fuck the turkey I want the stuffing), while dealing with a mentally deficient woman on the other end of the phone who thinks I’m speaking too fast, while fielding a phone call from the woman I’m supposed to baby-sit for tomorrow night, while attempting to figure out whether or not it would be beneficial to my dear readers to read about my lack of multitasking talents.

Now, back to your regularly scheduled blog reading…

It would be one thing if I were having a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day, but I’m not. Nevertheless I feel like being a bitch. I pulled a “drive by” comment today, just because I could and I felt like being mean. What the fuck is up with that? I feel like writing so much but I can’t. I feel like I might have a fucking seizure if these damn fire alarm lights don’t stop. I wish there was something I could put my finger on. Something to hold and say “Look! You see this? It’s pissing me off. Now take it away.” But alas not. There’s something hurting me, but I don’t know what it is or where it’s come from. General stress perhaps? But there’s nothing to be stressed about. Everything is just going smoothly, but then again, I always want more. I’m not going to play “This is the End” and try to convince people to beg me to write something, because this was never about other people. It’s always been about me-Where Narcissism Rules. It’s strange, I know what I want but I can’t get to it fast enough. But right now I have what I wanted before, but on to the next step. Let’s fast forward shall we? It’s always been ‘well? What now?’ And now it’s ‘well? When can I have it?’ Something good is going to come, I can feel that through the craptastic crap (which isn’t really) of my life right now. It’s like knowing that Christmas is going to be here soon, but it doesn’t come fast enough. I’ll just sit and be snarky for the rest of the day, because it’s comforting to know that tomorrow will be a new one. It’s times like this where not just snark rules, but boredom* rules the roost. I’m tempted to change my hair or get another tattoo or piercing.

edit to add: as I write this, my coworkers are doing a motherfucking Operetta. I write this not for you all, but for me to remember this and use as blackmail on them later.

*where are my blog recommendations people? I know you don’t want me to find new blogs to read, but I must, it’s inevitable. We all knew this day would come. And I feel compelled to share the Heather B. love. And no I’m not bored with you all, but there has to be a blog or two or 20,000 that I’ve never read.

another suggestion:

it just has a bunch of random ones. i'm searching for 'fresh meat' as well, so it's all good.

oh my goodness, check this out.

dj from full house has a website. and she's religious. uber-religious (not that there's anything wrong with that).

I can't wait to check out DJ's site. Awesome.

Oh, you just gotta get the right bra. I had no idea I had been wearing the wrong size until I went for a fitting. Who knew?

Good luck with the rest of your week.

I'm not surprised DJ is uber-religious. Her brother makes all of those Christian films. Didn't he kind of go off the deep end with religion towards the end of Growing Pains?

Don't get a tattoo. I got tattoos 2 days in a row once out of sheer boredom. I don't recommend it. (I mean, get a tat if you want. Just don't do it out of boredom.) I got my nosed pierced out of boredom too. That wasn't so bad. Hurt like a bitch though.

Cool blog!

Hi, I'm Kris. I have a blog at Come by sometime! I write about pain relievers/ceiling fans/Depends undergarments/why the diabetic teen really doesn't have a lot in common with BB King/assorted other everyday topics.

I'll definitely bookmark you!

Very funny, if you are into that type of thing.

I'm starting to believe in the Quarter Life Crisis. Your sentiments are bang on with what I and everyone else I know feels. Boredom. Knowledge that there is something good "right around the corner." Impatience because it's taking to f***ing long to get around that corner.

I think someone's poisoned our water.

I know what you mean. I am snarky as well-just with a wicked cold, and now glasses to match.

Just be snarky. Maybe you need to do something to be inspired...hmmmm

I'll keep ya posted.

Hey Heather B,
You sound like me which is a mess. Thanks for stopping by my blog (pox on the other blogs).. I love this blog and I understand boredom and moving on. I can't stand in one spot for long, it drives me crazy. I call it type A.
Good luck with finding something new.. i say go with a new outfit, a pair of shoes or even a new hair color.. Hold off on the piercings and tattoos

I was going to recommend Namaste, but you've already found her.

How about this one. Not local, but extremely entertaining.

1:12 PM  
Blogger Heather B. said...

DCC: Yes I found Namaste and I also have the Belligerent Intellectual. But ummm thanks for playing ;-)

and it totally is the quarter life crises, and I haven't even yet 25 yet, damn.
