Sunday night three-"oy" update. What are your oys? [More:]1. Cousin's wife created a web site that is', and added me (with no consent requested) to her list of people who will automatically receive photos every week. The poor kid is three weeks old. Oy.

2. Spilled some of my dinner (a diet TV dinner, beef stew) on my newly washed pants. Oy. (Luckily it washes out pretty well.)

3. I have to work all day tomorrow. Oy.
Argh, forgot more inside!! Mods, help?!

Now's time to filter out SIL's thoughtful updates?

Worked on taxes most of the day. Oy

Lower back still hurting. Oy.

I get to work half of tomorrow. Yo.

Been wanting cake or cupcake or icing or donut all week. Resistance is futile. Oy.

1. Had a wonderful time at my candle magick workshop today, but now I'm a bit too wound up to really be ready for bed. Oy.

2. Anubis keeps randomly putting his teeth on my fingers/hand while I'm mousing at the computer, as well as randomly eating paper. I'm spray bottling him but it doesn't seem to be working. Oy.

3. Ahhhhh, I have a paper due for Wicca class this Saturday and I only have one page. And I still need to write up the notes from last week's class to put in my book. Oy.

1. My doctor says I have mild scoliosis, and wants me to see an orthopedic doc. Oy.

2. I had a lovely day being outside, but have found three ticks. So far. Oy.

3. I should be doing some cleaning up around here, but just haven't found my motivation. Oy.

1. The neighbor's Sad Moving Sale (for which I volunteered to do some Craigslist pimping) goes on, and, even while the money inflow is agonizingly slow, the other neighbor who has done the most 'helping' appears to be skimming off the top (why I suspect is a long story and has to do with the traceability of $2 bills). Oy.

2. As I wait to take possession of the beater car I'm buying from her, I'm reminded of her concerns that its lack of acceleration was a sign of deeper problems while I reminded her that she had replaced a 20-year-old Crown Victoria with a 20-year-old Subaru. If I'm right, I'll feel guilty for not paying her more (but it was all I can afford right now); if she's right, then I will have paid too much. Oy.

3. Wore myself out on my last bus trip to grocery shopping today; focused on getting only what I needed most AND what were very very very good deals (the tale of the tape: I saved almost 50% off the store's exorbitant regular prices), but I worry that I overspent (which I will need to worry about after 'going shopping' becomes an easier task); besides, all the frozen (or needs to freeze to keep) foods are more than my freezer can hold. Oy.

It's been over a year since the last owners' meeting and it doesn't look like one will be held before AWP. Oy.

My biological excuse for a mother tried to add me as a contact on LinkedIn when she knows perfectly well I want nothing more to do with her. Oy.

Am debating whether to tell my classmate from Bradford that her friend invaded my personal space---when I reached out my hand to shake hers, she put her arm around me. The fact that we both know my classmate did not fucking give her the right to do this. Oy.

Oy vey is the cognate of the Dutch ach en wee. Which is woe is me in English.
My woe is me: it's monday morning. Time to go to work.

1. Having to protect myself somewhat from the seemingly endless stream of baby-making going on around me (mr alto and I want babies but are going to need medical intervention if we're to have any). Mostly using the Facebook unsubscribe tool.

2. What jouke said - Monday morning (but work ain't so bad).

3. Can't think of a 3.

1. My cat just yacked while on her cat tree, which means it ended up on my curtain sheers. Oy.

2. It was in the 60Fs Sunday. It snowed yesterday -- 2-4 inches was the forecast but I think I got closer to 5-6. It's going to be in the 50s today and in the lower 70s Thursday. Double oy.

3. While washing towels this morning, the pipe decided to clog and it took me too many seconds to get there and figure out how to turn off the flood of water. And then I had to use clean towels to wipe up the flood as my previously dirty ones were in the washer. Triple oy.

At this rate I may wish I was at work today.

OK, now Facebook is pushing advertisements for fertility apps at me. Scary.

1. I worked yesterday but didn't get what I wanted to do done. Oy.

2. It's Monday morning and I have to go do some official work though I don't want to. Oy.

3. I'm meeting with my advisor today to show him the stuff I haven't managed to do. Oy.

I have to have all of my songs memorized by tonight. Oy.

I haven't found someone to hem my dress yet, and we have to bring 'em in on Sunday. Oy!

They added new choreography last night. The can-can line is one thing, but the kicks back are another entirely -- one that I suspect will make me (and my ginormous rack) the new favorite of leering showtunes fans in my town. OY!
