WTF Wednesday

There is something about the middle of the week that is the worst. The weekend is a long past memory and the days until the next weekend are still in plural form. Its no longer taco Tuesday, and whopper wednesday is not what it once was.

Today, it is raining outside, it is not all that warm, I have a busy day ahead of me, and the wife and kids are not feeling all that great. It is a WTF Wednesday.



What are your thoughts on the suckiest day of the week?

Wednesday usually ends with a few friends having a pint talking about cars and life. The day itself might be crappy, but at the end I know the weekend is coming.

Tuesdays tend to have the "it's only Tuesday" type of feeling.

My elected officials meet every Tuesday, but now I have a new group and I don't dread it as much. So now it's a toss up between Monday and Wednesday.

I don't mind Wednesdays. Once you get past Wednesday you are in the home stretch to the weekend.

I'll stand by my earlier ranking of days of the week. Weds is a time when the end of the work week can first be contemplated and truly deserves its nickname. It was a labor to get here, but now that it has arrived we can take comfort that even if the wind is still against us, the road ahead promises at least to be a downhill journey.

My job is being eliminated due to budget cuts, yay!! After only 9 months in. Ville de Montreal feels that the money that funded my position (and partly that of two of my coworkers) is better spent on things like a Rodeo and Light Display for the city 375th instead of for Community Groups. Multiple organisations across the city are affected not just mine.

Gearing up for Interviews again. Good news I will have my Canadian Permanent Residency no matter what in 2018! And when I do get that and come back to Montreal (if I cant find another job and do need to leave - current work permit expires in June, and I need full time work to renew it until my PR comes) my organization will have Part-Time hours to give me, so I wont be coming back empty. So 6-8 months back in New York might not be such a bad thing worse comes to worse. Fight some Fascism, do another semester of Grad School, hangout on the 2nd Ave Subway and chill hard in the Bronx with @MacheteJames.

Such as life.

I know how you feel losing a parent to cancer - 45 years since my father passed - lung cancer. He wasn't even 51 yrs old.

Supposed to get down to something like 10 this weekend, but I don't think the weatherman said anything about snow.

Here in the Ohio River Valley, a weatherman said that "word" on tv.

Think of the children.

I see a new car in my future. What would you get if you had a budget of around $8500

Well, there was a time that you could get quite a bit for that price... but then Cash for Clunkers happened.




It was 25 degrees this morning with wind gusts strong enough to take down power lines and traffic lights. I have a horrible headache with a screaming ringing in my ears that the OTC stuff has not been able to touch.

You'd look pretty cool in this.

Plus, you could visit me coming and going to pick it up. :D

Pizza. I can't go out and enjoy good pizza because the cheap-pleases-everybody food at meetings is pizza. And rarely is it good pizza. Not a week goes by that there aren't boxes of pizza in an office I'm in. I'm sick and tired of eating pizza, and sick and tired of not wanting to eat pizza at my favorite place.

Last year we were on a streak of making homemade pizza every week. It was really good. Our favorite was red sauce, mozzarella, goat cheese, and caramelized onions. I also made a Korean BBQ Seiten topping that was really good. Now I want pizza.

Pizza was served at a meeting today, and will be served at office training event tomorrow. Just yuk.

My favorite to make at home has olive oil, fresh garlic, salt, lots of black pepper, ricotta, Parmesan and mozzarella on a thin crust.

Ooh that sounds good. How do you make a thin crust? Our dough recipe ends up quite doughy.

I learned this morning that my wife may not have enough time off to go to the Midwest for a week this summer as planned. We may do a trip up there in September... maybe.

It was just announced that Trump is going to be the commencement speaker at the big university's graduation here in town. I'm very thankful that I already have plans to be out of the country during that time!

To use his own words: Sad that a so-called university/religion that allegedly embraces tolerace/forgiveness and inclusiveness would be on board with this.

So we're gonna get Junior tested for ADD today. I'm sure they're going to tell us he's got it bad. Not sure how to respond, though, when they advise us to start him on medication.

That is not fun. Hopefully they can give you other suggestions related to diet and activity too.


The pollen clouds are destroying my allergies right now. Last night I slept kind of like I had been drinking half the night, you know, where you are kind of resting, slightly awake, and super tired when you get up. However I did not have anything to drink yesterday.

Recent storms have caused some serious flooding issues in the region. Wife just informed me that she has to stay late because a co-worker of hers got flooded out of their house this morning.

Workout at the gym was good, but some yahoo in a SAAB pulled into a parking space that I was waiting to turn left into (blinker on and everything). I pulled to the end of the parking lot, but I found it funny that someone would be so lazy that they would steal a parking space from me to be closer to the building, only to go inside and workout. That is just stupid, even on leg day.

Been there, done that. We medicate a tiny amount and use diet and other tools (including essential oils and activity). And our neuro likes backing off meds over summers too, so that helps.


I had a case of wine delivered to my house. Even better, I forgot I ordered it. Hello wine Wednesday!

Still haven't bought the new car yet. It's TOUGH to find a good used car these days. On a side note I am shocked at all the major mechanical problems I'm hearing about in cars manufactured quite recently. Talking like 2012, 2013, or even 2014. I thought we had lemon laws.:-|
