Stuff, Things, and Shit (Sorry, no Junk)

  1. I got hung out to dry. I've gotten screwed at work before, but never this overtly. Angry Taco is Angry.
  2. Piece of shit I used to be good friends with hurt awesome person I really fucking love's feelings. Angry Taco is Seeing Red.
  3. I had to work late today because of the fuck up that I wasn't responsible for, and that the one responsible won't acknowledge. Angry Taco is Pissed.
  4. This jackass in California decided to dick me over and make all kinds of noise about how important it was for him to get my fix as soon as humanly possible without actually answering my question about whether he had to have it tonight (accepting the fact that I'd be harder to reach outside business hours) or if he could wait until tomorrow. I didn't let him have it, but once I asked him point blank and couldn't get a straight fucking answer, I went home and let him stew for the hour and a half it takes for me to drive home, have dinner, etc. He's much more cooperative now. But he's still a fucknut. Angry Taco is Ready to Snap.
  5. Wifezilla takes kidzookie out to the mall for Mommy & Son's Night Out (TM). I asked her to pick me up a technical book I really need, since there's a Barnes & Noble in the mall. She comes home and hands me the bag, which contains the book I needed... plus the only Christopher Moore book I don't yet own. I look up and she smiles and says I seemed to be having a bad day, so she and my son got me a present. Angry Taco is... Less Angry.

Does this mean we can have angry sex now? You know I like it angry. Also, I don't remember ever in my life having a woman I was involved with doing a nice thing for me just because I was in a bad mood. Great, now I'm sad...

Yeah, I'm not really emotionally prepared for this event. I'd offer her sex, but I'm really bad at it, and I'm supposed to be showing her I really appreciate the gesture. So confused.

s'a good woman you got there, boy.

*spits*

Ya better do right by 'er.

suyapi said...

Oh, I wouldn't say you were bad at it. You like to touch all the right spots...

The Taco Prophet said...

Pfft. Like you've got a wrong spot. :)

Ellura said...

wow, can I really get sex for kind gestures?

How many times must I go over this with you, Ellura?

Ellura:
1. Female
2. Pretty
3. Geek

It's no great surprise your nick is an anagram of Allure. :)

Hey guys, what's going on in these comments?

My geek female sense was tingling.

E. S. Collins said...

It doesn't even take kind gestures. At this point I'd settle for gestures that don't cause me pain or make all my money disappear. Is it any wonder I don't let other people touch my genitals anymore?

I am just posting to further re-emphasize the point that a simple act of kindness can pretty much bring any man to his knees. And if a pretty, female geek does something kind for a male geek, she can wrap him around her finger. I believe it's part of the mating ritual. I'm writing a paper on it.

I'm big on small acts of kindness. I had one of the worst weeks I've had in a long time last week. I've found that when I'm feeling really really shitty, one of the things that makes me feel the best is doing a small nice thing for someone. The more random the better. Generate a little good karma or whatever.

My guitar teacher's having a far rougher time right now than I am. I don't know what kind of stuff he's into other than music, and his taste is pretty refined, so there's no way in hell I'll get it right... and if I did, it'd probably be something he already has. So I picked him up the Firefly DVDs. I taped the receipt to it just in case he'd rather have something else, but I figure it's the thought. Haven't had my lesson yet because of said difficulties, but I started feeling a little better as soon as I ponied up the cash.

Seriously, try it. If you're feeling like shit, randomly do something nice for someone you care about.
