WTF Wednesday

The hilarious and totally Hawt Trannyhead (who is currently taking the bar exam, KICK BUTT GIRL!) started a tradition recently of WTF Wednesday: the last Wednesday every month, you simply post abuot the things in your life lately that have made you go WTF??!

And here we go.

This cold Maggie and I have right now. Seriously. We couldn’t get through ONE STINKING MONTH without something, right? After January’s Germ Fest, it was so nice for those precious few days when everyone was healthy and happy. Now we’re a little sniffly and cranky (okay, she’s WAY more cranky than me, but that might be mostly because she’s almost 2 and well, life is tough when you’re that age, you know?) It’s not a terrible cold and I’m thankful for that, but still. ENOUGH. To germs in general, I say: WTF??!

CBS having reruns on AGAIN this Monday night. Where was my Big Bang Theory? Where was my new How I Met Your Mother? I thought it was February sweeps or something, right?? Why the old episodes? We wanted to see some new Sheldon and Leonard and Barney, dang it. And now it’s going to be March Madness soon and there will be more repeats. WTF??!

(on the upside: LOST TONIGHT!)

Dear Maggie’s Canine Teeth: PLEASE JUST COME IN ALREADY. We have been able to see the tops of you for what seems like years (but it’s really probably more like weeks, but as anyone who has ever dealt with a teething kid will tell you, one day can seem like an eternity) I am thankful that you canines haven’t interrupted her sleep as much as her molars did, but DUDE. Let’s get a move on. Why are you so slow? WTF??!

This one I can’t even comment on, other than WTF??! (and also: ew.)

I’m not even 30 yet (still have almost 2 months as a 20-something!) but this week, I found three gray hairs. They aren’t the first grays I’ve ever found, but THREE IN ONE WEEK? WTF??!

Spring shorts at Target: either super super short (think BOY CUT BRIEFS and I’m not even kidding) or really long (think 1985 called, and they want their shorts back) Really, Target? REALLY? Okay so maybe I am a little old to be shopping in the juniors department, but I can still fit into the clothes there and only look mildly ridiculous in them, so I’m gonna keep doing it. At least I was going to until I saw the shorts for this spring. I’m hoping this isn’t the case everywhere (NY&Co, please come through for me!) because seriously, WTF??!

And finally: our internet connection. Several times this week while I was working, it just disappeared. Once for just a few minutes, but a few times for over 30 minutes. And tonight it happened during my precious Daddy Is Home And Playing With The Kid So I Can Finally Go On Facebook And Twitter And Read Blogs Without Feeling Guilty For Not Doing Real Work Time. And do you know what I had to do instead??? I HAD TO CLEAN UP THE DIRTY DISHES IN THE KITCHEN.

WTF, Internet Connection. WTF.

What has made you go WTF??! lately?

    J,
    I heard that Nielsen and the Networks agreed to move the sweeps time period out of the traditional Feb and into Mar because of the projected move to digital TV on the 17th.

    Seriously, this was a hilarious post. Not that I am laughing at what’s going on but the WTF after everything is funny!

  3. I’d like to say a big WTF to all my professors who decided it would be a good idea to do their midterms ALL ON THE SAME DAY!

    Loved this post :)

    Ugh: I’m sorry you and Maggie are sick again! February really sucks.

    I’m glad her canines aren’t being too bad. Alex’s were so much worse than molars!

    I’m going to say I think Mark is right. This year Feb sweeps are in March. But I agree, WTF is with the repeats??? I need me some NPH-Barney and Sheldon to start my week off right!!

    But at least LOST was new, and I totally think Widmore and Ben are both evil, and the only good ones are the Losties trapped inside their game. I’m just saying….

    I hope the cold goes away for you guys. I really like the idea of WTF Wednesdays. It’s super cute. As for Mrs. Octuplets… I am in a permanent state of WTF-ery.
