My ears are bleeding

So this girl who sits behind me at work -- I'm sure she's very nice, but she is one of the more unappealing people I have ever met, without (her) being gross or mean or anything. Just . . . annoying.

She's one of those people whose volume is set too high; she talks too loudly. Additionally, she has one of the most grating, irritating voices I have ever heard. It's difficult to explain . . . it's as though it's constantly cracking. It's whiny, but it cracks all the time.

She's apparently having problems with her car, and is hella pissed that her dealership won't give her a loaner while they're fixing it. I really, really want these people to give her the damn thing so that she will SHUT THE FUCK UP ABOUT IT. Lord, I hope that by the time she's Project Engineer of something they give her her own freaking office so that everyone else doesn't have to listen to every phone call she makes. Ugh.

Man, post-birthday letdown. It's like Suicide Tuesday over here.

Thank Christ for my metabolism. It's not what it once was, but damn it works hard. I seriously have the eating habits of a fat person. I eat when I'm bored, and I eat when I'm feeling sorry for myself. [As a lifestyle note, if I'm not bored, I'm usually feeling sorry for myself.] It's a miracle I'm not three hundred pounds. We'll see what the future holds. Ugh.

You know what? I think people are more interesting to read when they're on your Friends page. If you're just reading their journal straight through, it may be a writing style-overload. Also, you're reading, say, two weeks (or much more, if they're an infrequent poster) of their life all in one sitting, which could get boring. This doesn't apply to everyone, of course, but . . . from now on, if I'm iffy about someone, I'm going to add them, and then if I get bored, I'll just get rid of them again.

And how about those people who make great fucking comments, so you add them, and their journal SUCKS? What a disappointment THAT is. Slightly less worse is that their journal doesn't suck, per se, but it's very "this-is-what-I-did-with-Bob-and-Fred-and-twenty-other-people-you-don't-know-and-it-was-interesting-to-us-but-boring-for-you-to-read". Oops, I do that all the damn time. Or when they post ABOUT LiveJournal, and who is and is not good to have on one's Friends page? Lame!
