fuck it fridays & a meme

So Lily tagged me with this meme thing. *mutter, mutter* It’s “What’s On Your Desk Wednesday” hosted by Sassy Brit of Alternative-Read.com.

Yeah, it’s not Wednesday, but, well, I remembered about it yesterday so you’re friggin’ getting it now, okay! *pouts*

There’s also a whole bunch of stuff I’m meant to do, including take photos of my desk (without cleaning… as if! I have OCD. I’m not dead!) and book shelves (which most of you have seen before so I’m not going to bother), list 5 booky and non-booky things that are on my desk, blah, blah.

Anyways, this is my desk:

The five booky things: my Iliad ereader; my new Sony (so pretty) ereader (which the awesome Mumma got me in London); my postcard signed by my #1 stalkee;… ummm, that’s it. What?! My desk is for my EDJ not for play time.

The five non-booky things: a cat bed with puppy toy (I have to give the boy kittens a place to sleep on my desk otherwise they use the keyboard for a pillow); a Kimi doll that my Goddaughter gave me; a cup of coffee; my iPhone; and, my external hard drive (time to get rid of those ebooks I’m not going to read again!).

This is where I get to pick on others. Mwahahahaha!! Only kidding. I’m not *glaring* as mean as Lily, but I will remind people (ie Jen, Val and EH) that they’re s’posed to do this too. Yeah, you are! If I have to, you have to and that’s that!

Now, it’s time for….


Never have I been so tempted as I have during the past week or so to answer the phone with a “What the FUCK do you want NOW?!?”

What about you all? Anything new to rant about?

    Besides the fact that I'm lazy has hell and did diddley squat while my daughter was away at camp and the weather sucks (either hot and humid or dark and rainy) its not been a bad week and I'm feeling the love and appreciation at work which is nice.

    So nope, no bitching from me today but I'll send lots of mojo that no one kills anyone cause I have no bail money for you right now.

  2. Kris says:

    Tam, did you at least get the bookshelves done? That's the most important thing.

    BTW, killing peeps is just too much like hard work. I prefer the 'looks could kill' approach followed by the 'cut direct' if my avoidance of 'em doesn't work.

    At first I thought “I have a blessed life; I have nothing to fuss about.” Which just goes to show how blissful life is when you live in the fog of denial. Because really I have spent umpteen hours this week trying to copy my itunes library to an external hard drive.

    Yes, I've got instructions (several sets). I've followed them. My external hd has unstable cables, apparently, since when I even nudge it just a bit (accidentally of course, as I am trying to re-organize the room where the home pc lives and there's a stepladder that manages to get in the way no matter where I turn)one or both of them fall out. Then I get that big Uoump sound from the computer that basically says “you have fucked this up.”

    When I finally did get through the copying process, I found out that – argh – not all the songs made it. Cause they were hiding in files I didn't know about.

    Also, somewhere along the way, many music files got copied into the “Van Halen” file. Yeah, like Josh Groban belongs there. That was a little mystery that took maybe three hours to solve.

    Bottom line is, I am now deleting the file on the exhd for the fourth time, and will try again for the copy/consolidation that needs to happen. Tomorrow. Or, not.

    And, technically, it isn't even Friday yet (here, where I am).

    Thank you for allowing this little ranty dance.

  4. Tam says:

    Ummm. No. *blush*

  5. I hate people who look me stupid. I want to kick their ass. This has been my fuck it Friday convention.

  6. Kris says:

    Wren, as someone who back uped and transferred files to a separate computer yesterday, you have my total sympathy.

    Tam, tsk, tsk.

    KB: I hate people who make you look stupid and then turn around and take the credit for stuff you worked your arse off doing. In my experience, they are called managers.

  7. Lily says:

    Nice desk, such a pretty color and the boy kittens bed is so cute too 🙂

    I've had a pretty good week so nothing really to bitch about. Had a nice day today, it's my day off from work, took Emmy Lu and went and got our hair cut. I can see her eyes again (boy were her bangs super long) and my hubby says my new look suits me. Oh happy day!!

  8. Sean Kennedy says:

    My biggest peeve at the moment is the global iPhone shortage. I WANTS.

    And aww to the postcard having a prime position.

  9. Ingrid says:

    Kris your computer looks the same as mine *g*
    Part from your stalkee postcard but…. I got one too. It still needs a place.

    The only thing to rant about is that I won't be able to look at Wave's guys till this evening!

  10. Kris says:

    Lucky Lily. 🙂 My desk was a horrid office grey, but a gazillion coats of primer and paint later it is now a pretty blue. Yay!

    Sean: You mean an iPhone like the one that I have?? *hehehe*

    Of course, your postcard has a prime spot. It's a constant reminder of my main mission as your #1 stalker.

    Ingrid: We have the same computer? Cool! Put your postcard up already!

    *wanders off to check out the pretties*

  11. Ingrid says:

    Not the same one, but they look the same. Mine is also place on my desk and I have pictures and postcards on it as well.

    I got a big ikea desk 🙂

  12. Jenre says:

    Wow, your desk is so tidy. I don't have a desk I have a computer unit/shelf/thingie. I'll take a photo and try and remember to do the meme thing next week.

    I don't have anything to rant about today, especially since I finished decorating the spare room on Wednesday and the house is tidy (for now).

    I do haz a sad, tho.

    But never mind, as the new Lily Allen album arrived in the post today so I'm going to wait until the kids are out of the house and play “Fuck You” at top volume.

    That should shock my nice elderly neighbours.

  13. Kris says:

    Ingrid: We like the same things. Must be why we get on so well. 🙂

    Jen: Are you feeling sad cos of the review? In that case, I say definitely shock your nice elderly neighbours. I'll have a drink or four for you too if you like. Don't thank me. I know. I'm an awesome mate. 🙂

  14. Jenre says:


    I've got a bottle of wine with my name on it but it's a bit early to start drinking it at noon, especially since I'm supposed to be in charge of the brood.

  15. Wren says:

    Hey Jen,
    Cheer up, binky!
    Try to put yourself in that place where you can see the huge number of supportive responses in the 'happy' column, and the couple of, um, less-supportive responses in the 'sad' column. Set fire to the sad and dance joyfully in the happy.

  16. Jenre says:

    Wren: You really don't want to see me do the happy dance – it's not a sight for public eyes!

  17. Wren says:

    Jen: I didn't say you had to do it in Public!! In the privacy of your own home, or wherever there are doors to close – that's fine! *shivers with creeps*

  18. “I will remind people (ie Jen, Val and EH) that they're s'posed to do this too. “

    Really? Too funny! Okay, I'll get right on it.

  19. Tracy says:

    Yeah, I got nothin. Am I doing something wrong that I don't have anything to complain about this week?

    Kris – your desk is beeeeeauuuuutiful. Very neat and tidy. I especially like the fact that you have Goodreads on your screen when you took the shot. *snort*

  20. Ingrid says:

    Kris – your desk is beeeeeauuuuutiful. Very neat and tidy.
    It is for that reason I hesitate to take a picture of my desk. It is a total mess.

  21. Kris says:

    Jen: Here's wishing you a good drunk. 🙂

    Val: Go you! 😉

    Tracy: I'd just finished clearing up all my stacks of papers when I took the piccie. You can't see the piles waiting to be filed. LOL. Having Good Reads up was actually a coincidence. I was planning for it to be something rude. *g*

    Ingrid: You have a messy bookcase AND desk? Are you trying to send me in to OCD fits?!
