Needs sleep badly

A severe lack of sleep the past 2 months has made me a severe bitch. I can fully admit to that now.

Yesterday was one big pin prick after another and with each one I felt hotter and testier.

In a meeting with some important people at work I had to literally bite my tongue because someone snidely and IMO inappropriately said "Well I assumed...blahblahblah".

Guess what I had to chew back? That's right boys and girls... something to the effect of assumptions making you look like an ass.

Not good, especially not good when it's the "big boss" you wanna get snarky with. Thankfully sanity kicked in at the last second and I said nothing, merely stared straight ahead.

Next came a trip for coffee trapped in an elevator with half a dozen lawyers. One of which was whining that he was late to work because a section of the highway was shutdown for a crime scene investigation. I guess they found 2-3 homeless people with gunshots to the head. His response: "They're homeless, leave them where they are and stop inconveniencing my commute".

My response: "Excuse me?!? Wow. What a wonderful way of trivializing someone's life and death. If it had been a business man, say another laywer, someone worthwhile in YOUR eyes, I'm sure you wouldn't have said something so shitty."

Their shocked expressions were almost worth the shrinking world feeling I got when I realized what I had just blurted out. =/

To finish off the night there was an ignorant, time wasting fight with Hash that was entirely my fault. It's becoming all too clear. I'm turning into an evil bitch.

I need more sleep. Now. I would dearly love to crawl under my desk and snag an extra hour before I go all homicidal. Maybe if I explain it to my boss that like she'll let me... I mean it's for the good of the office right? LOL

The SC Swatches: I had the instructions for 3 stitches drafted but Blogger ate them sometime between Monday and today. *shakes fist* Argh, I'll be rewriting them during lunch and then I'll upload the swatch scans when I get home tonight. Woot!

Woo hoo, I wish I could've seen the looks on that creep's face! I'm saluting you with my pirate hat in hand! You're my hero today!

I get so angry with the attitude of so many people, like some lives are worth less than others. It's just so wrong...

I'm so proud of you for blurting that out!! What a beautiful thing you did, with just your voice!! YAY!! I, too, would have paid money to see their faces....some people need something like that (your voice!!) to wake up and look around at how they treat others. Maybe you were there JUST for that reason. In fact, I'm sure of it.
It was a shitty thing for him to say, and I sincerely wnat to thank you for putting the cards on the table and calling it as you see it!
You just made my day!! :)
