I Will Survive


Thanks to all for the good thoughts. I passed the house inspection -- they were really just checking to see if I had a grow op or a brothel here, so I hid the plants and the whores in the attic and fortunately Thursday is ball-gag day so the whores were unusually quiet. Thank the deity for small perversions.

I would like to note here that the disgruntled bashing of the spousal unit has been withdrawn. He stayed up all night and worked like a trooper (trouper? that) to clean two rooms (including my daughter's pigsty) and then stayed up after I got home in the morning to help me with the guest room. We now have a bed for anyone who wants to visit, although they have to be happy in a room full of boxes of yarn and fabric.

The work fuckery continues apace and I'm not taking it any more. I have an inappropriately-called meeting to discuss a matter I'm not required to discuss on Wednesday, and after I'm finished not discussing it with the four or five other people who will be in attendance I'm going for personal harassment charges. Really, there's only so much one small Rabbitch can take and I'm tired of being the target of misdirected fury. They can't "get" the person they want to so they're going for me. We're all wondering who's next.

I can tell you, it won't be me. That's done.

And now, it's that time again. I can't really afford it but it was such a hoot last year I just had to sign up again. And most of what I send is handmade from what I have here anyhow so it's not like I'm robbing starving children or anything.

thus ends our break for Obsession Justification

So, the answers to the questionnaire.

1. What are your top three favorite colors?

Yellow, Orange, Oxblood Red. I'm also partial to purples and greens. Really I'm just a colour slut.

2. What crafts do you really enjoy?

Spinning, knitting, dyeing wool, hopefully soon I shall also be obsessed with weaving. I'm pretty sure my other obsession isn't really a craft but if it is, dude, send batteries. I really like making stitch markers and handmade orifice hooks too.

3. What products do you really covet?

Covet? I'm not much about the coveting. Fine spinning fibre, interesting new dyes, beads -- handmade glass beads. I like those. And any kind of skin product with shea butter in it. Organic chocolate, that's good too.

4. What other activities do you enjoy besides your favorite crafty things?

See above. It requires batteries. *g*

I also love swimming and writing and um, long romantic walks on the beach and dogs and ... is this is myspace ad or something?

I love reading. Love it. Mysteries mostly.

5. Is there anything you collect?

Dust bunnies. I used to collect cow-themed stuff but I don't need any more dust-catchers. I also have a small collection of Italian micromosaic jewelry but I think I've sold most of it apart from one or two important (to me) pieces. I utterly adore vintage patterns, the older and uglier the better. I've gotten tons from eBay and am resurrecting a couple of fantastic patterns that should never have been allowed to disappear. Oh yes, and there's a ton of stuff that's total ass that I like to post about and mock.

6. What is your zodiac sign and/or Chinese zodiac symbol?

Aquarius. Tiger.

7.What are your favorite…

…scents/smells?

I love the smell of Burts' Bees hand salve. Eucalyptus and something else.

I seldom wear scented stuff except for a smear of Opium body lotion, which is apparently "A bouquet of fruits, flowers, spices and roots such as orange, jasmine, pimento and vanilla compose this classic fragrance. FRAGRANCE NOTES - Cinnamon, Pepper, Orange, Pimento, Carnation, Jasmine, Rose, Ylang-ylang, Vanilla, Benzoin, Patchouli, Opoponax." I like spicy smells, and wear men's deodorant as I can't stand most flowery stuff. That being said I like Rose Musk from the Body Shop also.

I love citrus smells. I hate curry, lavender and the scent of straight patchouli.

…types of music and/or bands?

Anything. Country, metal, celtic, folk, classical. rock. I'm pretty flexible.

…authors?

Mysteries. And other stuff. One of my favourite novels is How Late It Was, How Late by James Kelman. Not a comfortable book at all. I also love Neverwhere, by Neil Gaiman and No Mean City by Irene Maver. Scottish stuff is good.

…animals?

I love all animals, even those I eat or kill, but no thanks. Emotionally allergic.

…places to shop?

I don't shop anywhere but the wool store or the grocery. Alas, I am boring. Oh, wait. The Soap Box in Seattle. I could spend a week's pay there in half an hour, and their prices are low.

…season?

Fall. Always fall. Or Autumn, depending on where you are from. I love all four seasons but fall will be close to my heart forever.

…yarn/fabric/paper/other craft supplies?

Beads.

…candies or goodies?

Yes, please. I like organic chocolate, and hard candy. And peanut brittle. Man, I like that peanut brittle stuff.

8. Do you have any wish lists?

World peace. If you can accomplish that you can skip the entire package.

9. Are you allergic to anything?

Stupidity, power exercised for the sake of power alone, penicillin, dishwash soap, peppers.

10. Do you have any pets? What are they?

No, see #7. Emotional allergy.

11. Please include anything else you would like your secret pal to know about you- anything that would be helpful in finding you little gifts that you will really enjoy.

I have a six-year-old daughter who I love to distraction. Apparently I'm also a do-gooding strumpet of some sort.

Have fun *g*

Comments:
Good luck with the work stuff. I had some of that a few years ago and i didn't do anything about it, and I regret it so much now. I was so shocked and upset that I really couldn't fight back... but then I'm not an Aquarian Tiger :) Go for it.
 
Well now...#1 those folks at work should go fuck themselves, what namby-pamby dumbasses. Tie their butts in knots, really tight knots.

I won't be numbering things now...so, would that be double A or triple A size batteries? or perhaps C or D?...

"they'd have to be happy in a room full of boxes of YARN and fabric"???
I am so there, I'll bring the Fat Tire.......
 
Sorry about the suckasses at work. Fk 'em.

And about the swap--I could never do that. I don't actually have a favorite color these days.

Also, how did I miss it that our kids are about the same age? Isn't this a great age? Except when you want to tie them to the mailbox with a "free--actually I'll pay you WELL" sign.

And lastly--Marianne will get body-checked out of the way for me to get to the yarn-filled room first. The drawback is what, here?
 
Damn, Rabbitch--I wish you'd said something. I'd not only sleep in the yarn and fabric room, I wouldn't have made you clean it first.

I had the same kind of situation at work several years back and I wish to hell I'd stood up to it instead of maybe half-believing that I deserved it. I'm so proud of you for refusing to take it.
 
a room filled with boxes of yarn? Dude, I'm so coming up for a visit!

Yay to passing inspections. Good thing you keep the meth lab off your premises.
 
Sleep in a room filled with boxes of yarn and fiber hmmmm lemme think...sleep?
 
I'm curious, do you knit your own ball gags?

I can't believe anyone would harass you at work, I hope you give them hell and then some. I have only read your blog for a month or so and I think you need to make them read it to so they know JUST who they are dealing with.

Good luck! Perhaps a ball gag or two (you could knit them over the weekend) might come in handy.
 
No pets? What about those rats! Just because you gave them a little "tough love..."

Definitely fight back at work and do a suit (law that is). So many of us have had at least one abusive job where people do totally inappropriate stuff because they CAN!!! At the expense of our health and well-being.

i'm surprised you didn't ask for something gas-powered with a wooden kickstand! batteries. PAH! for amateurs!
 
Rooms full of yarn and fabric are my favorite, so that's no problem. I've got batteries and beer (a Drop Top sounds pretty good right now -- oops, it's only 9 a.m.), so that's no problem. Of course, you don't know me from Adam, so that might be a problem. Maybe if I brought Adam . . .
 
Whew! Been thinking about you all week -- now to start mustering the good energy for your confrontation with the Forces of Evil at work. . .

Hey -- On her 90th birthday, when someone asked Astrid Lindgren (she wrote Pippi Longstocking and a bunch of other books) what she wanted for her birthday, she replied "World peace and great clothes." Thought you'd like that --

The world needs more do-gooding strumpets like you. The company doesn't know what they've got. Hang in there.

Unless you're into offroad adventure, why bother with expensive batteries? Be green and get something with a cord. Or, if you must have batteries, I hope you're not relying on those namby-pamby watch batteries.

Go get 'em at work.
 
I like a good plug-in myself....
