Quote Of The Day: “OMFG. U have got to be kidding me.” -Juse

Today was definitely get shit done day. My ass did not wanna get up all early to head to my accountant’s office, but if there’s two things u can’t avoid it’s paying taxes and death. I honestly didn’t know if my accountant’s office would be open. She’s Viet, and they celebrate our new years so I thought she might closes this weekend? But I decided to go anyways, cuz this is her busy season so she should be open.

I get there and see a line of folks! Dang she’s packed. I should have got there earlier. I ended up waiting an hour. Her clients are a mix of Asians and Americans. There was this one old Chinese woman who was in line before me and how about right in the lobby/waiting room she decided she wanted to listen to some Chinese holiday music so she started blasting it on her cell! I mean like a speaker! Everyone was listening to it. Who the hell does that?? No one wants to hear that shit! That’s your shit! There was a family of ghetto folks there in line and they were just cracking the hell up. They’re probably making fun of her wanting to make those dumb ass “ching chong ching” noises. Ignorant mofos. But she’s bold as shit! She didn’t give a hot damn if it was disruptive or not! I had to listen to that for an hour! FML.

My taxes are usually super easy so I was in and out in less than 10 minutes. I did forget to bring my health coverage document with me, but I later scanned it to her.

Afterwards I thought it was pointless to head back home and then come back out so I just went ahead and did all my errands in one trip. Had to go pick up the Sunday paper from Wally World, then off to the grocery stories. I picked up some really fresh snow crab legs, and other random things for tomorrow’s dinner. I also got a bottle of champagne. We were ready to go!

My Ass Handed To Me On A Plate

Quote Of The Day: “But I’m an employee. That’s unprofessional.” -Juse

I had my ass handed to me at work today. It was so damn busy!! I really can feel the strain of being short-handed at work right now. Even my clients coming in were pitying me and asking how come I’m by myself. Uh, cuz we can’t afford to hire anyone?? I’m just gonna power through it as much as I can. I have a busy weekend ahead. Its Chinese New Years on Monday so I have a lot to prepare. Not only do I have to finish doing my shopping for new year’s dinner, but I have to go get my taxes done tomorrow.

reason A doesn’t want me going anywhere New Year’s Eve which is honestly way more important to her than actual New Year’s Day so I need to make sure I get everything we need by Sat.

The whole day at work I felt like I was going to pass out. I was just so damn exhausted from this week! So much drama, so many scares, the worries, the anxiety! Its just too much excitement for one week! I am so looking forward to this weekend! I’m so glad we didn’t have to do overtime today. It really is our busy season with tax return and everything but its also New Years so its kinda hectic for me.

Quote Of The Day: “What if he bit me?!” -Juse

So had a traumatic situation driving into work today. I was about half way to work when we had a little stall in the road and traffic on both ends were a little backed up due to a red light. It was just 2 lanes. One going and one coming. Suddenly out of nowhere a half naked grandpa walked into the street waving his arms around. At first we didn’t think anything of it. When traffic started moving u could see folks trying to drive around him cuz he obviously was not gonna get out the way.

Scary part came when I just passed him and through my rear view mirror I saw him starting to randomly pull on people’s car doors! I was like WTF!! That’s some scary shit! I immediately locked my car door cuz I have a habit of not doing that, and had my door been one he randomly pulled on then I’d be a dead chicken cuz it would have opened right up! Who knew what he was trying to do! Get in? Pull me out?? Then he started to bang on folks car windows, the whole thing freaked me out. Thank goodness traffic was starting to move so I drove further and further away but kept looking in the mirror until I couldn’t see him anymore. How scary is that?? Oh  man. I sure learned my lesson. >_<

The other big event that happened today was that Phillip left! I thought he was leaving tomorrow, but apparently not! The whole morning he sat around bored as heck. I wondered if I should have made small talk with him but I opted no to cuz I don’t know. I’m not good at starting convos, although I can usually keep one alive. Then around noon time, he started packing up. I thought it was odd he was packing up for “lunch” but then he came around to say his goodbyes and I was like what?? You’re leaving??

I was puzzled cuz uh… Last time we had a meeting, nothing got resolved! I thought we were gonna have another meeting to try and rectify the issue and resolve it. I wonder if that means that Bossman continued “talking” to him after we all left work and they resolved it themselves? Not even sure! But he didn’t see upset or anything and Bossman didn’t speak of it for the rest of the day. Hum, not too sure what that’s all about. >_>

MOOD: onigiri- upset (WTF)
Quote Of The Day: “^%$#@!*&^!!” -Bossman

First let me start off by saying I slept like a baby last night. Yesterday was SOOO exhausting. Without having to write everything that happened, in summary it did get ugly between Bossman and Phillip during our meeting yesterday. I mean it got very ugly to the point where Bossman left the meeting and we had to go grab him, but he refused to come back! It was really awkward relaying that message to Phillip. Regardless of how upset u are about it, we’re all adults here and what’s done is done and u just need to talk it out. Storming off resolves nothing and only leaves awkwardness.

We didn’t wrap up stuff yesterday so today we continued the meeting. They had discrepancies regarding the splitting of payroll costs. One doesn’t wanna pay for employees whom are not working for them full time. The other thinks they should pay because that was what was first agreed upon. I can see the point of both sides I guess.

But Bossman scared the shit balls out of me when he suddenly busted out in a rage on the phone and was yelling and slamming the door at the same time. I got so scared for a second I almost ran into the men’s restroom by accident. *FAILS*

At first I thought he was yelling at Phillip but it ended up being a whole different situation. Regardless it startled me. In the midst of us trying to resolve the expenses for the new entity, they had an issue with funds in the company bank account and some funds that were suppose to come in didn’t and essentially that caused a lot of checks to bounce and Bossman had a cow, and it was SOOO hectic for a few hours.

In the end they did resolve the bank issue, but we didn’t continue the meeting with Phillip so I’m not even sure what they plan to do with that. We’ll probably continue it tomorrow.

Quote Of The Day: “Well shit. Maybe u need to sit with him and watch too, so ya’ll can both learn. Lol.” -Juse

As I mentioned before ever since June left, I have been enjoying my freedom. I’m the only one in the main lobby now and I can do whatever, eat whatever and no one sees unless they pass by me which is not often. But now that Phillip is here, he’s sitting in June’s spot which is right next to me and its been super inconvenient.

Besides having to eat my damn lunch like a ninja, I also have to be careful about one very bad habit that I have had ever since I was a kid. And that is………………… clearing my throat. Honestly I don’t know when it happened, but I’ve been doing it since I can remember. My biological father had really bad asthma. I’m lucky I didn’t get that from him, but I do have a sensitive throat and everything irritates it. I feel like I constantly have to clear it.

As if that wasn’t “manly” enough, I also do it very loud! And I have to do it before I answer any phone calls. I can’t tell if its a habit now or really like I can’t speak clearly if I don’t. But since the office is so quite, its really obvious when I do it! I don’t care if Bill hears me cuz he farts all the time anyways, but its odd doing it in front of Phillip! I feel SOOO unlady like. Ugh! But my throat is so scratchy if I don’t! I try to let out a small cough to help relieve it a little, but I REALLY needed to clear my throat. So I just did it really loudly once and I think I startled Phillip. He turned to look at me.

Quote Of The Day: “Is Bossman back yet?” -reason A

Work was rough today. Bossman and Phillip are back from Mississippi and I doubt they’re gonna go back. Blah. I hate having him walk around staring me down. I spent the day doing paperwork and getting stuff ready to wrap it up with a string of meetings with Philip. Bill warned me to keep my mouth shut when things get ugly so that’s exactly what I’m going to do. Not sure how ugly it might get but I’m pretty prepared.

After work I attempted to shop for the remainder of the Chinese New Years food, with no avail. One of these days! I will go straight home after work without having to hit the grocery store. Lol…

The Purge Must Continue!

MOOD: onigiri- happy hands (Working Hard)
Quote Of The Day: “Well we can’t throw away these videos, they helped us through some really hard times.” -reason A

I told reason A we have to do something today. We can’t let another perfectly good day go by without doing any cleaning. At this rate, we’ll never get everything done! By the time we finished eating, and were ready to work, it was already 3pm. Ugh. We locked the cats in my bedroom and started tossing shit again.

See, this is why we can’t have a washer and dryer. The damn laundry room is FILLED up to the brim with boxes! We went through some of them today. Many of the boxes were filled with old VHS tapes. Yes! The good ol’fashion video tapes! We have a shit ton of them cuz I use to record Korean shows.

Then we had a shit ton of DVDs. I’m the queen of bootleg, so I have a pretty extensive collection. I’m considering getting a media center later on and putting everything in there. But that will be the “organization” part of this cleaning. We’re still very much in the purge phase. I thought we could get a lot accomplished, but it looks like we didn’t even make a dent. But eventually all this will add up. We finally gave up around 7pm cuz it was getting dark so we couldn’t just keep the doors open. I guess we won’t tackle this again for another 2 weeks, cuz next weekend is Chinese New Years so I know we won’t be cleaning then.

Out Of Bed, I Do Not Want To Get…

MOOD: onigiri- tired (Sleepy)
Quote Of The Day: “Muffin is protesting the fact that you’re napping.” -reason A

I didn’t sleep particularly late last night, why am I so tired today? I have so much shit I needed to get done, I honestly didn’t have time to be struggling in bed. I dragged myself up at noon to have lunch with reason A and then attempted to get my day started. I had to start shopping for Chinese New Yrs stuff. We decided that we’re gonna bust out with hot pot again. I sure hope its not hot that weekend. Ugh.

Then we’re suppose to do fish and some side veggies another night. I have to go searching for a really large fish. Something substantial, because the word “fish” and the word “prosper” share the same sound in Chinese so to have an abundance of fish means to prosper for the new year. Then I need to get some random groceries and then Wally World for my Sunday paper.

But after lunch I was so sleepy that I couldn’t get my ass up! I fell asleep on the sofa with the cats and I napped til almost 4pm! Oh boy. I was behind schedule, so I had to haul ass and get out the door. I didn’t end up getting home til almost 8pm! Super late for running errands but I also left the house late.

I got about half the stuff, so for the next week I need to searching everyday after work for the rest of the stuff. U know we got a lot of Asians in Atlanta so stuff goes quick. Lol.

Warmer Weather + Weekend Plans

Quote Of The Day: “What? Has it been 2 months already?” -reason A

What is up with this weather?? Did we not just have snow a few days ago? And now we’re back up into the 60’s and I heard that it was gonna be like 70 one day next week! Noooo!! Don’t do this to me! Ugh.

I don’t have any plans this weekend other than cleaning the house!! Why does the living room look like a hoarding situation again? We’ve been accumulating so much damn stuff and not putting it away and all that damn furniture is just sitting in the living room but we can’t assemble any of it until we get the other 3 bedrooms cleaned out. Its almost like its so overwhelming now that we can’t seem to get a grip on it. Auhhh!! The return policy is about expire on the furniture so I need to make sure I get everything assembled as soon as I can. Please kill me. X_X;;

Update On The Hubs

Quote Of The Day: “Finally! I don’t have to get up early in the morning!” -Juse

So we finally have an update on Kenny’s paperwork. Ever since his interview and semi-approval he’s been running around trying to gather up his missing paperwork. Essentially he has a “blank” period in his background check that prevented him from being completely approved on the spot. Apparently over there you have to grab a background check for every city you’ve lived in, and during his moving process from leaving one city and registering for residency in the other, he had like a 15 day gap. Its similar to moving over here, and you have 30 days to get ur tag registered in the new county. Well this became an issue during his interview so they asked him to produce the paperwork that states he didn’t commit any crime during those 15 or so days.

Well since he hadn’t registered in the new city yet during that time, it was hard to get a hold of an office that was willing to go out on a limb and provide an official document stating he’s in the clear for those 15 days too. He went to multiple offices, police depts, city hall and no one was willing to do it. He was getting extremely frustrated, but at the same time I think it is totally necessary. Allowing a foreigner to come to your country and live permanently is a big deal so of course you wanna make sure you cross all your T’s and dot your I’s. No one is trying to bring over a serial killer and my ass is definitely not trying to live with one. Lol.

So he finally found a place that was willing to do it and they told him to come pick up his documents this morning. We still didn’t know for sure he would get them until he actually had them in his hands. Good thing is he did end up getting it successfully and he immediately went to the consulate and submitted it. They took his passport and told him to just wait for it to be mailed back to him with his visa. So the paperwork part is finally over! Now we play the waiting game. I think they told him it would take about 20 days, but considering its about to be Chinese New Yrs in a couple of weeks, we think it might get delayed. They’re usually off for 10 days for new years. Lucky bastards. >_>
