The downtown fuckage

By M Davies   /     May 26, 2006  /     NEPA, The Pre-Dooce File  /     0 Comment

I am so thrilled because I just found out that the theater project will finally be finished on June 30th.  I don't think I could deal with construction on East Northampton Street for much longer.  It pisses me off that they have that little section of road closed because I have to go out of my way now each day to get to Gabby's Daycare.  We are talking about an extra 5 minutes of traffic everyday.

 I really hate driving, so this pisses me off even more than I normally am in the morning. Here's a picture of what the fuckage looks like on any given day:  (click the little picture for bigger picture – this was taken off of Sordoni's Construction Cam)

WBCR is where the big Epcot Center type ball is in the middle.  Gabby's daycare is on the street behind the fuckage.  They are very close, but to get to them, it's all one way streets so it takes 10 minutes with all of the traffic and red lights that you hit.  Argh.  Wilkes-Barre was designed by a bunch of pollocks.  BTW, I am a proud part-pollock so I'm allowed to say that.

Kids these days

By M Davies   /     May 25, 2006  /     Medical Issues, Mommyhood, The Pre-Dooce File  /     0 Comment

I was at the OB-Gyn for my tri-weekly checkup (which is now changing to bi-weekly because I only have 10 weeks to go!) and sat in the waiting room for approximately an hour after my originally scheduled appointment.  The waiting room was library-quiet until this woman and her 4 year old son came in.  The reason I know he was four was because he kept announcing it.  LOUDLY.  He also proceeded to stare and point at several patients and say "What's with that lady".  "What is that lady here for", "Where does that lady work", etc, etc.  The key word here is LOUD.  The kid may have only been there for 10 minutes, but I don't think that he shut up the entire time.  I don't know about you, but I am not easily entertained by kids who can't be kept under control.  This is the exact reason why I don't bring Gabby to the doctors office.  It would be a disaster waiting to happen.  I either take her to daycare, leave her with a family member/Rich or I don't go at all.  The only way I could see taking her with me was if the doctor appointment was specifically for her, or if I was deathly ill and could not find anyone to watch her.  I don't understand why parents insist on bringing their heathen children to doctors offices.  It's one thing if you have a well behaved child…but with young kids, they do not have much (if any) of an attention span, and get bored easily.  Boredom leads to disaster.  Outbursts, Hyperactivity and other such things to attract attention to themselves. To me this is not amusing….and I'm sure other patients feel the same way.  Do us all a favor and leave your damn brats at home!!!!!

DOND

By M Davies   /     May 10, 2006  /     The Pre-Dooce File, TV Rants  /     0 Comment

Today I'm going to forego the normal pregnancy whining entry and write about something completely different.

Deal or no Deal is the game show I love to hate.  Lets face it, you don't need to have any real skills to take part in being a contestant except for maybe counting.  You don't have to answer any trivia questions, or do any stunts.  You are given a brief case full of an unknown amount of money and you are at least guaranteed to leave with that much, if not more.  Which leads me to ask the question:  What are the requirements to get on the show?  Breathe?  Count to 10?  Make up some stupid supersticious thing to discuss with Howie on the show?

I can't stand how greedy the people are though.  Hell, even if I left the show with 1000 dollars more than when I came on the show, I'd be a happy camper.  I'd definately be happy with more, but if it was only a dollar, its more than what you came with. I often find myself chanting 1 million as the contestants open each case.  I am thrilled to death when they open the 1 million dollar case and realize that they have a smaller amount.  It cracks me up.  It sorta reminds me of Press Your Luck.  Whenever that show was on (I think I was around 5 at the time) I'd sit and chant WHAMMY over and over until they actually landed on one and then laugh hysterically.  Their faces when they hit the whammy were priceless as they are when they open the 1 million dollar case.  I guess I am a game show sadist.  I take solace in knowing that someone else just lost a whole lot of money because they fucked up.  Big bucks….No whammies…..and STOP!

Pollen

By M Davies   /     May 07, 2006  /     Medical Issues, Mommyhood, The Pre-Dooce File  /     0 Comment

I am considering paying off all of the local weatherman in exchange for some rain.  I am dying.  There is so much pollen on my car that it actually looks like a yellow jeep instead of dark green.  I guess I will have to take it through a car wash tomorrow…..if I actually feel like getting out of bed. Gabby decided that earlier she wanted to take off her diaper while she was still in her crib and pee all over her bed.  That was a thrill to clean up.  I guess its better that it was pee and not poop. 

Yeah that's really all I wanted to say.  Oh wait.  I'm also tired and my legs hurt.

Wahhhh.
