I think the olympics are trying to kill me

See I can't seem to not watch them. But the dang thing goes on until midnight. Why the heck can't they start it earlier here on the West coast? Why do I have to watch tape delayed Olympics? Don't they know I need sleep too.
But no!
I find myself hooked. Snowboarding! Skiing! Figure skating! Speed Skating! MUST WATCH.
And half of these things I wouldn't watch on normal tv if you paid me. Yet there I sit cheering on team USA as they ride a half pipe doing tricks I have no idea if they are good or not. It is a strange thing.
Then in the morning I drag myself out of bed groaning from my lack of sleep.
I even tried taping it two days from 10pm on. But you know what that was 4 hours of Olympics that I had to watch during the daytime and I don't watch tv during the daytime so that was 4 more night hours. Not a good thing.
So the Olympics is trying to kill me and they are doing a pretty damn good job of it.
Last night what I wanted to watch was the men's figure skating. I figured I would watch that and be done with it. EXCEPT here on the west coast it started at 10pm.
HELLO that is when I go to bed dang it. So I taped it. Now I have to watch another 2 extra hours of Olympics. UGH!!
And can someone please explain to my why the dang Olympics make me cry? Standing on the podium as they get their medals. boo hoo. Winning something they didn't realise they could win. boo hoo. Falling and ruining their dream. boo hoo. UGH lol.

I have walked twice in the last week. That is not good. I was right about my motivation disappearing. But I got myself on that treadmill and walked and hated it. I have to figure out how to re motivate myself. And I will. I have too.

I still don't have a job. In fact I am just amazed at the job postings out there. Four years of college for a receptionist position that pays ten bucks an hour. Are they on crack? 90% of all job postings in the last week expect you to know two or three languages too. Sorry I only speak English. It is incredibly frustrating and I can feel myself giving up on the hunt. I cannot do that. The only way to get a job is to hunt. But I just feel like I am wasting my time for something that isn't going to happen. Sigh......

Can someone please explain to me how this has happened. I have a cat that sleeps on my pillow. She has done that since she was a kitten. Except it has become some kind of fight now. First she started taking more and more of my pillow. I would wake up with my head on a tiny corner with her sprawled across the whole thing. Now she gets on the pillow then blatantly puts her leg on the top of my head. She is using my head as a damn foot rest. I wake up with furry feet on my forehead or hell once even on my nose. I am sure I can hear her laughing at me.
And please please please please stop following me everywhere. OMG this is driving me insane. And please please please stop meowing at the top of your lungs when you walk into the room I am in. Trust me I know you are there. I see you. You freaking follow me everywhere every day. I don't need you to announce your presence. I SEE YOU. ARGHHHHHHHHH



  1. I have a dog that presents his belly for a good rubbin to every person that enters our house, including delivery men.

  2. I haven't slept more than 5 hours at night since the Olympics started. I love it. I don't cry tho. My problem is yelling at the tv when everyone is asleep. Waking them up at midnight does make them cranky.

    Also, I am DVRing every channel I know has the olympics on. So I am really obsessed.

  3. I have a cat like that! She doesn't steal my pillow but she walks behind me and talks the entire time. The other cat sleeps in the middle of the bed and gives me attitude when I take it back. But he doesn't follow me all over the house.
