An Observation About Efficiency

06/11/18

I’m a fabulously efficient shopper, especially when there’s a bit of a crowd. No browsing or looking around; beelining straight to shelves 2, 13 and 47 to get what I need, pay, get out.

An Observation On Hawthorn

05/29/18

A friend of mine is on a mission to rid her garden of hawthorn hedging – “Die, hawthorn, die!”. This announcement has led to a thread on her Facebook page where everyone hates on hawthorn. How ugly it is, how thorny, how profuse, how impossible to kill, absolutely the plant, from, hell.

I hardly know what hawthorn looks like and have never had any opinions about it, but I now feel very sorry for poor hawthorn and want to leap to its defence.

Allergic To Sound

05/21/18

So, misophonia. While I don’t specifically enjoy listening to people masticate, I can be quite cool about it. The sound that drives me to the point of insanity: people with phlegm in their throat who just keep talking phlegmily instead of clearing their throat. *shudder* To add insult to injury (or rather, injury to insult, har har), I keep trying to clear my throat for them, so I end up with a sore throat too.

An Observation About Standing Your Ground

05/14/18

Hey, I think I’ve evolved a little! Work today involved an almighty email conflict when a colleague wanted me to do A, because “I say so” (sic.), and I wanted to do B, for actual, practical reasons. The colleague in question is, um, domineering, and kicked up a huge fuss, involving two more colleagues plus the boss. Boss ruled in my favour, which led to an even bigger conflict, accusations of favouritism, passive aggressiveness, direct aggressiveness, and general bad behaviour.

I’ve had heart palpitations all day, I’m stressed to the max, and dread meeting the colleague later this week, but not once did I consider backing down to avoid the conflict.

Now, if I could only learn to deal with the aftermath in a healthy way I’d be golden. My coping mechanism tonight is a ton of ice cream.

An Observation About Figures of Speech

05/08/18

I absolutely loathe the following sayings:

Curiosity killed the cat

There’s more than one way to skin a cat

No room to swing a cat

… and my loathing will trickle over to people who use them. #no

An Observation About Positive Feedback

Someone: [compliments me about something]

Me: *blushes* Oh, thank you!!

Me, later that day: Or were they being sarcastic?
