National Grouch Day

Last night, I was watching the Chicago Bears lose to the St. Louis Rams. Anyway, it was 23-3 with less than 3 minutes to go in the third quarter. This lady called it a night. Glad I did not watch the forth quarter. The Bears were going to lose their first game of the year, and I did not want to stay up for that. I wonder what the final score was.

Okay, so I did not really see the game last night. I don't watch much football. But had I watched it, I would have been reminded not to count anyone out. The game, as people at work are talking about it, was bizarre. I did not get a lot of the details – when men talk football, I sort of feel like Charlie Brown in his classroom. You know, hearing, "Blah Blah Blah" out of the mouths of the teachers. I sort of want to ask how Matt Leinart's ass looked in Cardinal red, but I would not want to offend my male co-workers.

I really don't know what I would like to talk about today.

I heard someone say recently, "To me, there is nothing wrong with this at all." I see those words as a signal – a marker, so to speak – that there may be something wrong with "this," whatever this is.

Similar to the axiom (yes, I meant to use this word): "You can't judge me." Instead of "you can't judge me," I think the speaker means to say, "Don't judge me." We make judgments on a daily basis, and I have a hard time believing that people do not judge even if they try not to judge.

I took Monday off – you see, Sunday, October 15, was National Grouch Day. Now, I wonder why the day was placed on top of National Poetry Day, and it did not coincide with Oscar the Grouch's Birthday (June 1). I guess the planners of the holiday did not evaluate these factors or talk with me. Shame. So in light of the event, I took Monday off (since I could not take Sunday off; no one would know the difference).

And I grouched around all the freekin' day. I kicked the cat, kicked the dog, and I took candy from babies. I went to fast food drive throughs and said "waaw waaw waaw" and other indistinguishable language. I called the Savannah Morning News and said my paper was not delivered, even though it was (I did this twice, even though I did not intend on reading the papers).

And you know, after all of this National Grouch Day celebrations, what the kicker was? No body noticed anything different. Son of a bitch!

Judgement is not bad, it's what people do in order to come to conclusions about every minute detail that they spend their time on. *blinkles*

Maybe that's just me.

Bruce said...

Just so you know, National Grouch Day was named in my honor. It's a tough mantel to carry, but I do my best..

Tony said...

Tight, white pants. And yes, my wife said he had a cute ass.

Happy Dessalines Day (Haiti)
or Happy Family Day (South Africa) if you prefer.

Judgements are like opinions, everybody has one.

mal said...

*G*

Leesa said...

jr: yeah, I know.

gw: funny! I really thought I was right.

~deb: I would go for a monthly PMS day!

mike: nah, not my day.

kycm: Not my day either.

prata: judgement is not necessarily bad. I completely agree. Sometimes I have bad judgement, though.

bruce: wow, so do you have to do some speaches or something in honor of the day?

mal: thanks, sweetie. I love you, too.

Hi Leesa,
wires got crossed with snapping on previous posts ...

1) snapping bras - not my thing
2) snapping with the kids ... was what I was asking about, as in short tempered snapping

3) So what do you infer from the matches, not being a counselor? lol!

And that sort of answered it.
Taking Candy from babies, not quite as bad as baby bashing, but not that far off ... hold your breath, count to three - and if all else fails You could always think of Me. lol!

quasar9: I took some Psych classes - fire sometimes is the fascination for sexually frustrated people. Just a little joke!

QUASAR9 said...

Hi Leesa, missed the point

Life being a box of matches
As in your breaths are numbered
like the hairs on your head
the matches in the box, or
the pennies at the fair ...
sugar candy - honey sweet
want a roller coaster ride
want to come play with me?

QUASAR9 said...

So you don't come back to previous posts, or you simply don't wanna play.

Did you say you had a hubbie, or partner - did you say you were a 'catholic' did you say who or what you think you are as in DNA profile or geneaology???

Hello. My wife and I bought our house about 6 months ago. It was a foreclosure and we were able to get a great deal on it. We also took advantage of the 8K tax credit so that definitely helped. We did an extensive remodeling job and now I want to refinance to cut the term to a 20 or 15 year loan. Does anyone know any good sites for mortgage information? Thanks!

Mike
