Grinchy’s Terminology Tuesdays! March 23, 2010

Filed under: 1 — sexgrinch @ 10:22 PM

In high school we had this ridiculously hard English teacher who, over the years I grew to love, even if I retained absolutely nothing from her classes.  I had her for English and Speech all four years of high school and she was a big supporter of my writing.

Each day she would write a word on the board.   It was always a word that nobody had ever heard, like ..  This was always my favorite part of the day because I absolutely crave learning new words.  I often say that the thesaurus is my favorite book, even though I haven’t touched mine recently.   Throughout my years in high school I learned so many new, colorful and wonderful words and my writing really blossomed in that time. 

So I’ve decided to bring this back into my life and see if it helps kickstart my writing again!  It’s really more for me than it is for my faithful Whovillagers.  But I would love to see if you can implement the “Terminolgy Tuesday” word into your next blog and how.  I love reading blogs so if you decide to participate make sure to comment and link me!

If “Terminology Tuesday” takes off I’d love to start offering prizes!!!

Today’s word:  

exiguous   ig-ZIG-yoo-us\ , adjective;

1. Extremely scanty; meager.

Tiny Tim’s family lived an exiguous lifestyle.

Don’t forget to link back to your blog if you decide to take part!  I will always post my blog containing Tuesday’s word on Wednesday!

Conversations with Mr. Grinch March 22, 2010

Filed under: 1 — sexgrinch @ 10:52 PM

We recently put a ban on eating food in our basement.  This was due to a thorough cleaning of our carpets after several disasters. 

I simply cannot obey this rule.  I’ve grown up eating on the couch in front of the TV.  It is as horrible as it sounds.

Mr. Grinch:  (Pointing at glass) What’s this?

Me:   (innocent look)

MG:  What happened to not eating downstairs?

Me:  (innocent look/shoulder shrug)

MG:  I know it’s yours, because it’s not mine.

Me:  (innocent look)

MG:  If I catch you downstairs with food again I’m locking up the refrigerator.

Me:  (blank stare)

MG:  I’m serious.  I’m getting sick of this.

Me:  (blank stare)

MG:  Nice having this conversation with you… (turns around to take glass upstairs)

Me:  (devilish grin)

 

10 Horrible, No-Good, Very Bad Reasons I’ve Been Absent from Blogland. March 19, 2010

Filed under: 1 — sexgrinch @ 4:05 AM

10.   I had to balance my checkbook.  (Seriously, this took FOREVER.  Death be to all checkbooks.)

9.  It was winter and I was hibernating.  WELCOME MARCH AND SPRING!  Thank God for you, I almost died.  What a horribly depressing winter!

8.  I’ve been busy measuring my waistline in anticipation of my ‘baby bump’.

7.  I’m pregnant and I have a 2 year old… (OK, that’s a good excuse I don’t care who you are!)

6.  I was parallel parking my car.

5.  I had to shampoo my hair.

4.  My dog ate my blog.

3.  I was enthusiastically enthralled in the news.  (HA! How’s THAT for alliteration?!)  And anyone who knows me knows that this statement is entirely false.

2.  I’ve been brunching with Hillary Clinton.

1.  The girls and I were chatting and I just lost track of time *hiccup*…

I’m BAAAACK and determined to make this damn blog successful.  Even if it kills me.  Which it probably will.

 

*Still working on a title* November 11, 2009

I work in an incessant sea of gossip and arrogance.  It’s brought an insurmountable amount of stress into my life. 

Enter: Lexapro (stage right)  Enter: Xanax (stage left) —  They dance merrily together. 

End scene.

It’s a classic tale of “girl hates girl”  or “girl hates prettier girl”.  Jealousy rules over the job kingdom and careers are ruined in attempts to destroy lives.  It really is quite the soap opera.  So instead of dragging you through the daily complaints we’re turning it into a modern day soap opera!  Can’t you just wait?!  Starting today with a new installment every Wednesday.  I’ll now attempt to set the scene.

It’s a cold dreary evening in January.  I wake up at 3pm as I do everyday to prepare myself for the shift to come.  Working graveyards isn’t ideal, but it’s what I have to do to keep my family together.  Especially after rumors of an ongoing affair broke.   Work relationships were growing tense and I could sense nobody believed a word anyone else had to say.  My boyfriend, Dean, didn’t like a single co-worker of mine and was futile in his attempts at getting me to quit. 

“We need the money.”

“You need your sanity.”

“I’m fine.”

I jump online to check my facebook account when I recieve a message from a friend, the man I’m rumored to have an affair with, that only says ‘congratulations on the engagement’.  What?  Wait just a damn minute here!  I am not, nor have I ever been engaged?  I ask him who is meddeling in my personal life?  He responds “May”, a co-worker of mine.  A woman who believes everyone business is tabloid worthy. 

Furious, I set a facebook status calling out my “co-workers”.  “Colette wishes her fellow co-workers would ask before they talk.”  Which, in hindsight, probably wasn’t the most professional thing to do, as she still had several co-workers as friends on her facebook page.  All hell broke loose.  Comments, accusations and gossip-OH MY!

I spent the rest of the evening on my couch, cuddled up with Dean, shaking and crying in anticipation of going to work, knowing how I had just horribly offended all the girls I work with.  This would be the first of many panic attacks induced by my career. 

*******

I’m still very much working on my writing skills.  I am open to ANY and ALL criticism.  It’s the only effective way to better yourself.  Give me your opinions and thanks for reading!
