I so overslept this morning. I woke up at 5:45 and figured I had 15 minutes to kill so I closed my eyes. When I opened them again it was 6:55. SHIT!!

I have to catch my bus at 7:20 and it is at least a 15 minute walk.


I did the worlds fastest dress and go, skipping my shower routine (good think my deodorant keeps on ticking) and ran out the door after grabbing a can of tuna and a bag of spinach for lunch (I had some things already in the fridge at work), and made with 5 minutes to spare. (I took a different route to a closer bus stop, I don't like as much).

Fortunately the day went pretty smoothly and quickly, with only one stupid caller.

I so hate going back to work, after a long weekend. I just got used to being lazy and now I have to be productive again.

I'm even doing laundry tonight (though that was more of a neccesity than anything else).

Between calls this morning I had some brief time to think.

There are somethings about some members of my gender I just don't understand.

1. Dragon Lady nails How the heck do you do anything, and how do you keep from scratching yourself. I tried some press on's once in my teens and I hated them, they were so in the way of everything.

2.Too small shoes, and other uncomfortable sacrifices to the gods of fashion Maybe I'm just old, but in my book, comfort first, fashion second. I care how I look, but if it ain't comfy I dont' care how cute it is, I will not wear it!! I also wear a hat, and I dont' care what it does to my hair. I can fight my hair better than I can pnuemonia or hypothermia.

3.Obsession with having a man Why do some women feel they need to dedicate thier lives to getting a husband/bf/so.. I mean really are they that uncomfortable being alone. If I find a guy great, if not I'm certainly not less of a person, or any less valuable for not being somebody's other half. It isn't as though I have no friends. Besides I'd rather be alone, than trapped with Mr. what the F* was I thinking. I've already don't that.

4. Bodice rippers/Harlequin romance/Danielle Steele I've read a few, and caught some Lifetime "movies". Is it just me, or do they just keep rewriting the same 10 or 12 plots over and over again. If I can predcit the better part of the story after one or two chapters, I'm really not all that intersted.

5.Beauty pagents/the whole princess mentalty If we want to be totally equal than we have to act equal and stop juding ourselves by how well we look in an evening gown or bikini. Aside from model, or Hooter's girl, I'm pretty sure, fills out bikini nicely is not something most people will put on a resume. And the whole 6 year olds made up like 17 year olds makes me sick. If we want to be equal, we have to act equal. Pull out our own chairs, help others with thiers, and who ever gets to the damn door first, has hte emptiest hands, or is most capable should open the bloody door, gender is irrelavant. If a woman likes being a soldier and a guy wants to be a preschool teacher, I say more power to them.

6.Stilletos My ankles hurt just thinking about them.

I'm female and heterosexual, but I am so not girly. I don't understand the whole guy mentality, but sometiimes my own gender makes me scratch mty head just as much.

Maybe I should start a third gender..

In every neighborhood there is at least one house that all the neighbors gossip about. This is a diary from the woman who lives in that house. I am a single mother in her mid thirties. I live in North Dakota with my son, Warren.

I tend to be a bit of a slob, and am the opposite of a girly-girl. I am geek girl, who loves Star Wars, Star Trek, Harry Potter, Buffy, Angel, action movies, science fiction, action adventure, Dr. Who, and so on and so on.

I love to write and while I don't post much fiction online anymore I would love to be a writer someday. I am also overweight, bipolar and suffer from allergy induced asthma.
