Have to go to work early

I got an early-morning-meeting notice at 9:00 last night. Nothing helps you unwind at night like a work email at 9 p.m. telling you to get in early.

Anyway, as I always do when I have to go in early, tell me what I should blog about when I come home at lunch. Then when I come home at lunch, I’ll read your questions and suggestions, ignore them, and either not blog at all or blog about whatever I want.

Don’t you love our little dynamic? See you at lunch! Or luncheon, as Nancy Drew used to say. I wish I had a Hannah Gruen. I say that now, but every day I would head home for lunch and be annoyed that that old lady was there making me sandwiches. “Why does she give two fucks about my mystery? Can’t she get her own goddamn life? God, this roast beef sandwich is delicious. Why does Beth have to eat three of them?”

XO,

June.

  1. I’m no help when it comes to ideas for your blog post. Sorry, I just cannot call it anything else. And, I’m only first because I can’t sleep and it’s 4:40 here in California.

  2. Can we discuss whether Hannah and Mr. Drew were hitting the sheets anytime Nancy was out sleuthing? “Quick Hannah! She’s gone. She figure out almost anything but hasn’t realized your doing more than my laundry.”

  3. (I want to remain anonymous so everyone won’t think I’m a COMPLETE nut case) Am I the only one who, when called in to an early morning meeting, immediately thinks, “Oh sh*t, I’m going to be fired.”?

    1. Hey, I had an early morning meeting and DID get fired! So there you go. Thank you, awesome firm I worked for (she said bitterly). Although unlikely, it’s a possibility.

      1. Damn, that sucks! Both times I’ve been fired, it happened after lunch on a Friday, never first thing in the morning. What’s the point of making you come in only to tell you to turn around and go home permanently? That’s just bullshit, man.

  4. How’s Edsel doing with his walks? That’s all I have unless you want to make bets on when you think my mother and sister will FINALLY get their electricity restored. Stupid, stupid Irma.

    1. Dear Sadie, sending prayers that your family (and everyone else) has power restored soon. Life without electricity sucks, partic if you need it to power your well water.

      1. Thank you, Maddie.Your prayers are working as Mom and my brother had their power restored Friday. Please keep praying for those still without power.

      1. My brother in Jacksonville had powered restored Friday afternoon, Mom in central Florida had hers restored Friday night. Still waiting for my sister in Lakeland to get hers restored. Fallen trees took down power lines in all three cases.

        Sandra in Naples, how did you do? I was worried about you when Naples took a direct hit.

        1. We did ok but it’s just now getting restored, still 46% without power. Gas was nonexistent until 48 hours ago. But so happy to have power and Ac. Thanks!

  5. Sort of sideways, but remember when we all “live posted” during one of the awards shows? And the Emmys (Emmies? No.) are this weekend, I think. That was fun. OH. You could not-blog about your Emmy predictions, and not winners, but who will be dressed most absurdly / whore-ishly / etc.; who should be shot on sight (Ryan Seacrest) (Jill Kargman); will Giuliana Rancic continue to look like a tootsie pop in a prom dress; why does Amy Poehler always look like she just finished folding mountains of laundry, evening gown or not; would Anna Faris have any eyes at all without her Sharpie eyeliner; and of course, the scary state of Drew Barrymore’s boobs.

  6. I always love hearing about your old boyfriends with their unique names. Wish I had been smart enough to give mine fake names like Ignacio or King!

  7. Consomme. That’s what you’d get for lunch from old Hannah Gruen.

    “Consomme is all you shall have today, dear June. It is a part of your slimming regime.”

  8. Questions currently burning a hole in my esophagus:

    1) How do I brush my cat’s teeth? (Yes I’ve googled and, frankly, I don’t believe the people answering have ever ever tried to brush their cat’s teeth.)

    2) Is it inevitable that as we get older we become more bitter about life? Or is this just a local phenom I’m seeing?

    1. I only became bitter about life a few persons, three seperate incidents in my life treated me like dirt, didn’t see it coming at all. I am a good person. Didn’t deserve being treated like that , and I wouldn’t treat someone that way. I turn 59 today and until 3 years ago I wasn’t bitter at all. I am healing and am a little less bitter now.
      I liked Nancy Drew and couldn’t tell you the name of any of the characters. After I read a book …poof there go the names and what happened.

      1. Hi Beth, sorry for late reply! So yah, ugh, that seems the thing – bad things happening over and over to good people and then who can help but become bitter? But you give me hope that maybe, with time, the bitterness eases. Thanks doll.

    2. I am finding out at 55, that as you age, you become more expendable to people. You are nothing but a budget line item to your employer, you are not a potential partner to any man your age and you are frequently disrespected at businesses (unless you threaten to pull the 17 year old clerk across their check-out counter, like I have been known to do).

    3. Maddie, I always thought I should be brushing my cats’ teeth too, until I realized that if I stick my finger in their mouth with a brushlike thing attached to it, I will end up with one less finger!

  9. How about “what is the most horrible thing you have done to your boyfriend/spouse/partner in revenge for something”. I have some good things for that. Not clean the toilet with their toothbrush good, but funny good.

    1. I decided to head out to the Pride parade first. I made a little sign announcing my 10 pound weight loss and I thought I join in the parade. Do you think they’ll mind?

  10. I always remembered Nancy Drew books describing her outfits with words like Titian Blue and Chartreuse. I had to look them up in the dictionary. She had a riding outfit that was a Powder Blue shirt with a Scarlet red coat and I always was a little skeptical that was going to look alright, seemed like a white shirt would be better…

    Tangent: Now I want to be the person that names the paint colors. I pick colors for my house based on the color of the name. One time my red living room was Vesuvian Garnet! My office right now is Hot Chocolate Souffle’
    What colors have you picked based on the name?
    Paula, beige in not a color!
