A new form of shopping

I've always loved shopping, and woohoo! I've got tons of new stuff to shop for! First stop, maternity clothes. Andy thoroughly enjoyed himself doing this with me. He kept asking how a pregnant woman was supposed to squeeze through the tiny aisles they had in Motherhood. Then he got to ask about why all the shirts seemed to be made to over-emphasize large bellies.

When I pointed out that "Dear, they are maternity shirts. They're supposed to be roomy like that." His answer was "Well, sure, but do they have to cut them so that it makes you look twice as big? It's as if you're walking around saying *in the manner of Strongbad* "Gaze upon me as I create life anew."

I can't remember the last time I laughed so hard.

The hormones, they have taken over

So I know that the hormones are important for baby growth, etc. but do they really have to take over my brain completely? I can't listen to the news without getting teary-eyed (heck I can't watch someone win on Wheel of Fortune without getting teary-eyed). I can't go through 2 hours at work without someone completely honking me off for something that only mildly irritated me 3 months ago.

The worst though, I think, is that there's no break between the happy, sad, and bitchy. One minute I'm laughing hysterically at something that I swear didn't used to be funny and then next I'm sobbing uncontrollably over that touching telephone ad.

Say a few prayers for Andy, the next few months are gonna be mighty fun for him.

I can no longer read Dooce at work. All thanks to the special filters the system administrators have set on our system. Dooce has been my daily saviour and the source of much enjoyment at work. ALL GONE!!!

I hate filters. I hate companies that employ useless filters to prevent employees from using the internet at work.

Here's a hint people, your employees have lives outside work. They spend one third of their entire day in your office. At least. And guess what that's during normal business hours for everything else in the country too. So in order to take care of everyday life your employees are going to surf the web. They're also going make personal phone calls. To the doctor, the day care, the dry cleaner, the babysitter, the dentist, their best friend they haven't seen in 3 weeks because they've been working 10 hour days for your company...but they're still going to get their shit done!
