1.800.Need.Help

I had a week from H-E-Double Hockey Sticks.

The topper was some young snot yesterday
who had a huge Mary-Jane-Wanna
(marijuana)
sticker on the back window of his car
parked in my paid for got my name on the plaque parking spot at work,
telling me,
after I mentioned to him that this was staff parking and 
that staff have to pay for their parking spots,
to "Get over my ******* self" and then again to "**** off"
and flipping me the bird twice as he drove away. 
(Why do they call it flipping the bird???)

Thankfully,
I could not care less what some ill-mannered youth thinks of me
(Karma will get you Mr. Small Vocabulary)
and Thankfully
the reason I drove out of my parking spot at lunch time
was to go to one of my favourite stores where I
bought myself a lovely new purse!!!
Can you have too many purses? Nope.
$17.00!  How could I leave that in the store?  Well I couldn't.
Plus some lovely new green nail polish.
Retail therapy.
It's a beautiful thing!

So THANK GOODNESS IT'S FRIDAY!!!


After work this afternoon
(off at 1:30 pm ~ Flex-time!)
I am coming home to
exercise to "Just Dance 3"
 lay in my bath tub
with a mountain of bubbles
candle flickering on the edge
(fake candle!)
reading my book.

Then I will
get dressed in my favourite red sweater
paint my nails
(but not with my new green nail polish - too Christmassy with the red)
drink a Molson Canadian 67 Sublime
(0 points in weight watchers!!  Unless you drink more than 3 of course!)
and wait for Stanley to come home and pick me up.

We are going out for supper and then to
Dr. Hook in concert tonight at the casino.





Hmmm.....
gambling $5 in Las Vegas a few weekends ago
buying a $5 lotto ticket last weekend
drinking my one beer alone
and a concert at the casino this weekend...

maybe I do need help...

  3. Oh, it sounds like you have a fabulous afternoon and evening lined up.

    I like that lite beer, didn't realize it didn't count in Weight Watchers. Neat.

    I don't need a new purse (as if "need" ever entered into it), but I certainly could make good use of a decent knapsack, not too big, not too small, one that fits on my back properly. Hmmm....Don't think I'd find that for $17, though!

    Have a fantastic day and weekend, no more surly, snarky, disrespectful schmucky "kids," please. (Anyone under 30 is a "kid" to me these days. LOL.)

  4. What a knucklehead. Not you--the idiot who took your spot. While we say "Don't let it bother you"--it does. Especially when you aren't used to hearing that sort of language.

    I dunno, I think your evening sounds wonderful! LOVE the sweater and the date. :) I hope you have a GREAT time!

  5. every time I come to your blog, I end up laughing my head off. I do love your subtle humor and sarcasm and so much enjoy your stories of your daily life. i rarely leave one of your post with out either a great big smile or a LOL. like that sweater, on the fence for the green nail polish, happy you did not wear it with the red sweater. you did the right thing, just consider the source and go shopping. thanks for my wake up smile fest.

  6. Love your red sweater! Hope you have a nice evening out...you deserve it!

  7. I totally agree with you, that purse shouldn't be ignored!
    I can see your weekend starts earlier today, so I hope you and Stanley have a very good time together! ;-)

  8. THE Dr. Hook... I didn't even know they were still performing.
    You'll be a knockout in that beautiful red sweater, without the green nail polish of course and the faint hint of beer on your breath.
    Have a great night!
    And just think you already know who you're going home with.

  14. Ralph Waldo Emerson said,"For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness." He will get his one day. "Sylvia's Mother", "Cover of the Rolling Stone" Dr. Hook? Really? Enjoy!

  15. i think it is called getting out and enjoying life and a red sweater means you are really stepping out!
    go girl!

  16. ALL week I kept thinking the day was really the next day, it really feels long then, must be some weird karma in the air, because I too have had a few rude people cross my path this week. I don't drink beer, but I will toast my glass of wine in the air to you tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  17. All in a day's work I suspect regarding the little snot-boy. You handled it well.

    Love your outfit, purse and the fact you are having a real date with the hubby! Enjoy!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Ugh, what a jerkwad. People like that really get under my skin. But, I suppose all you can do is laugh. You're right, karma can be a b*tch, and hopefully he gets what's comin' to him!
    Sounds like my kind of Friday that you have lined up. How do you like Just Dance 3? I almost bought that one myself, but ended up grabbing Dance Central 2 instead (which is pretty good, but has lots of songs I don't know).
    Have a great weekend, Cat! :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. We hope that fantastic evening you have planned wipes away all memory of that rude little toad. Have a great time! :)

    ReplyDelete
  20. on the contrary. i think you're just hitting your stride! :)

  23. Love the red sweater and the bag is pretty too! No, you don't need help...you're funny! :)
    Have a wonderful date tonight!

    ReplyDelete
  24. ooooooh.... it is soooo much fun to quickly call a tow truck when some ass is parked in your spot.... and then just grin as they are towed..... sigh......

    They absolutely do NOT park there a second time believe me.

    ReplyDelete
  25. LOVE your red sweater!!! Next time have the punk towed from our spot :-)

    ReplyDelete

  28. You are turnin' into a party ANIMAL!! Have fun in your hot red sweater.
    And that snotty kid? He needs to spark up a higher quality weed and chill out!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Hi Catherine, Cute blog... Looks like you all have a nice evening planned... Love your red sweater ---but please, no green nail polish... (They could put a light on your head and you would be a Christmas tree....ha ha)

    Have fun.
    Hugs,
    Betsy

  30. Dr. Hook!? Can I come too!?
    I love your finds, and as for the low life kid, he'll reap what he sows. Have a great week-end Catherine!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Hope you enjoyed the concert, I love Dr Hook.
    A bit of retail therapy will help get over most problems I think. XX

    ReplyDelete
  32. Hey - you just go out and have fun - love the red sweater. And girl - can a girl have too many purses.

    Love, sandie

  33. Have a nice evening !! you look great the woman in red...love Ria...xxx..

    ReplyDelete
  34. Oh, I think you are just right! Have a great weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Oh, Catherine you crack me up, girl! Glad that you got an awesome deal on the purse, and the green nail polish sounds fab...but I agree not with the red sweater. Hope you and Stanley have lots of fun...and don't fret about that rude young man!

    ReplyDelete
  36. That kid probably couldn't read - he's pretty pathetic! As for the red sweater - WOWZA! That's gorgeous! Might want to videotape the show to show Stanley later because he won't be paying attention to anything but you tonight! :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Well I would say that between the $17 dollar purse, the cool nailpolish, the awesome sweater and everything else, it totally outweighs the jerk kid who parked in your spot.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I indulged in a little retail therapy the other day, I also got nail polish (four bottles for only $5.99!). I absolutely love that sweater. Wear it well and have a great time at the show!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I always say that the biggest problem in the world today is that there are people in it (they mess up everything ;o)
    Cute sweater!

    ReplyDelete
  40. No, Catherine, you are not the one who needs help! Love that sweater. Did you find it here at home?

    ReplyDelete
  41. the sign on the parking spot should have told the young man something, but hey, who reads anymore? We are always ticketing college students who park in our department car spot. Aaahhh the "joys" of being young! :(
    Hope your doing great on the WW. I weighed this morning..lost 2lbs. yea!
    eating my portioned veggie ritz snack right now. Good luck and way to go on the purse purchase!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Oh, no, this young person is terrible!! But I agree, karma will get him.
    I love your red sweater. Very pretty!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Good attitude on your part, I'd say. :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. Thumbs down to the nasty parking spot stealer (makes ya wanna repeat that "older but got more insurance" scene from the "Fried Green Tomatoes" movie...lol...but two thumbs WAY up for new purses, gorgeous red sweaters, yummy sublimes, and much deserved nights out with hubby. I betcha Dr Hook was awesome!!

    PS: you need to hook a sistah up with the details of where you got that purse ;)

    ReplyDelete
  45. So sorry you had a tough day, but it sure sounds like your evening will be wonderful!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Cat, you would have had waaay more fun that night than the young dude with the 'tude. I've come to realise that nasty people really are mostly unhappy folk but sorry you copped that all the same. Gorgeous red top!!!

  47. oh mr nasty was having a bad day ..... hopefully he'll feel bad about the way he treated you!

    The bubble bath and concert sound like a nice way to end the week!!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I let out a gasp with the potty-mouthed young man and think I would have towed his little car somewhere--or felt like parking in back to keep him pinned in. LOL! But then rolled as you told about the rest of your day and what you were going to do. Go Cat! Hope you had a good weekend. Thanks for making me smile.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Me thinks that little boy needs his mouth washed out and his fingers taped to his hands!

    Yikes - so sorry you were treated that way!

    So very glad you got to enjoy your afternoon. I bet you looked fabulous in that red outfit!!

    ReplyDelete
  50. People can be so rude.. even after you told him nicely. But other than that, sounds like you had a fabulous day!! Where did you find such a good deal on the purse?? Haha hope the show was good, the colour scheme reminds me of Christmas. :) <3
