OT - Eff Off/Forn Friday

Aniki's picture

Yep, it's a Friday combo. I'm in an effy mood and craving barbecue. So... 

Eff off to:

  • Zoom. I have been on 23 zoom calls this week. And I was off Wednesday. Only 3 more zooms today! *wacko*
  • King Pita. Pleeeeeeeease take vacation. For a week. Or a month. Maybe an entire year. Your voice is giving me mono.

 

Forn Friday

Forn is 'food' and 'p0rn' combined. I am craving barbecue. Specifically, ribs that are finished in my secret sauce. And corn on the cob that's dripping with butter. What's your favorite barbecued food?

 

Wishing you a stress-free and enjoyable weekend!

For the second week in a row, EFF OFF to people who can't spell my name correctly when it's right in front of them.  

Eff Off to my employer's call center whose employees will direct calls to me when they don't know what to do with them.  Um, bitches?  I work in a very small and very specialized unit that usually has nothing to do with the general public unless laws are being broken.  Believe me, people aren't calling in to talk to Kitten Whiskers.

I'm southern and I love barbecue, fried chicken, green beans slowcooked with bacon and onions, homemade macaroni and cheese.  Fuzzy Umpkins, little redneck cat he is, loves all the same foods.  That's all well and good, except he sleeps on the bed with me, and those foods will give him gas.

Oh, I hear you about the phone calls. The central line sends all kinds of call to us. Because they don't understand the question, and they don't understand what we do. So, by that pea brain logic, it comes to us.

How are they spelling your name??

Kitin wiskerz?(spelling challenged)

Kitten whispers?(hard of hearing) 

Keeten Wheesker (english not first language ) 

 

SIC Fuzzy on 'em! He'll put the fear of Merriam Webster in'em.

 

And mac n cheese.. that is the stuff that creates goosebumps in a carbo/cheeseaholic.

I got them now!

Oh! Mac nCheese and Meat Chili together.It is a sinful pairing.

Eff off to people who don't actually know what their job is, much less do it. I work in a highly regulated environment. TWICE this week I had to respond to audit questions that involve people from other areas. "We don't do that" or "we don't require that" were the responses I got. Uhm, YES, you do. It's an overarching Dept of Labor regulation, and not specific to my area. AND, yes, in fact you ARE responsible for these things. I've already warned my boss that I expect an audit finding, but it's not a deficiency in MY area. We found the figgin' problem so somebody should be saying thank you instead of bitching.

People get real tired of me because I point out things that they'd rather not know about. Because then they have to fix them.

Yep, that's annoying! King Pita is constantly stepping on my toes. I know my job and do it well, but he seems to like double work and effing up his crap attempts to duplicate my work. Asshat.

Yes, back to back Zoom calls can be draaaining. Especially when it's a call where "everyone is asked to show their face on video," because then you actually have to look at the screen and appear to be paying attention. Lmao!

My fave BBQ is my DH's bbq'd ribs with his own homemade sauce... what are the odds?

Eff off to: Spineless middle management, DH not getting a new job yet, the endless heat (I seriously have almost passed out eleven times this summer from the heat), and eff off to ME being the only functional person in my household right now who is NOT depressed. I'm over it.

Aniki's picture

IAW, I have some that overlap so get miffy emails "Aniki, are you going to join the XYZ call?"

Gaaaaaaaahhhh!!! Dash 1

EFF OFF to Debbie Downers today.  A few of my friends are for some reason feeling the whole world is full of idiots and just have nothing nice to say.  Just can't today.  Wanna go home and curl up on the couch with DH and watch movies. Phone OFF!

I am on a chinese kick this month.

I would also love to taste every variety of salt out there.  If you have suggestions, maybe even a website, send them to me Smile

Happy Friday!

oh I love salts.  I went to a 100% salt shop years ago and tasted a bunch. My friends though I was nuts because they couldn't taste the difference - oh there IS a difference.

I like the gray or black salts with red meats.

I don't have a link but I'm sure Google can help!

Debbie Downers all need to get on an island and stay out of my way. 

Chipotle sea salt. Nom nom nom...

Hello, Aniki!

Fresh tomatoes are everywhere.Planning to have a  Caprese Salad with fresh mozzarella and basil out of the garden  drizzled with extra virgin and white balamic  and a hunk of crusty ciabatta with more virgin olive oil with garlic and parm  in a small bowl to dunk the bread.  Carbs are my comfort foods..that and wine.Oh and icecream.

Smile

BBQ gotta be sweet spicy and generous. With lots of napkins.

What is this secret sauce you mentioned..?

Oh wait it's a secret.Got it.

Wanting  to experiment with meat  rubs .Anyone know an all purpose meat rub recipe for chicken or beef?

 

 

Kitten Whiskers's picture

I LOVE sweet red peppers.  Don't ask me why, but I do.  I like to make a caprese salad with red peppers, balsamic, and basil.  Tomatos tend to be too watery unless they are in a sammich like a BLT.  

somethingwicked's picture

I love sweet red peppers ,too, and will try that .

BUT only if you will try roasted red peppers in olive oil and orgegano..AND on a pizza with black olives and onions.

Ever have that?

Oh ~and a side of pepperoni ..don't forget the pepperoni..

Aniki's picture

Mmmmm... Caprese Salad. Yum!

Wicked, I won't even tell my family what's in it! At this time, it is in my will to be given to my sister. If she's not living, it goes to one niece.

I've never done a rub on chicken, but like Emeril's Rib Rub on pork/red meat.

Eff of to a sick kitty. Well, not the kitty, but the sick.  Poor thing is having vomiting issues (was solved until today) and now likely upper respiratory infection. She sounds so stuffed up and is hacking - which I think triggered gagging and throw up this morning. Ugh. Poor baby.  She's going to the vet AGAIN this afternoon.

BBQ:  Red meat. Steak or burgers!  I made burgers earler this week and now want steak this weekend.

Aniki's picture

Aw! Hope kitty is better ASAP!

I love the burgers my DH makes, but he hates to cook. Must write down how he does it before he refuses to make them...

Well, now we are having a minimal BBQ party with some friends in our C-19 "Bubble."  I'm going to do grilled pork tenderloin and zucchinis.  It's not 'bbq' flavor, but it will be marinated and be salty/smoky.  Speaking of "bubble" I may get some bubbly to go with it....

Eff off to sh*t news, DH's granmother has been sent home on hospice, due to COVID only DH will be able to make the trip to go see her.
ETA pulled pork nachos are some of my favorite BBQ.

company that is taking 8 weeks to put in our fence.  Our one dog is a runner...so they have to go out on 30 foot leads to run off energy.  (Boxers...love em..but ya gotta run them out). I now have rope burns on my ankle when dog number 3 wrapped me with his lead.  Ugh...

Eff off to COVID..I AM TIRED OF STAYING HOME AND I'M AN INTROVERT....Ugh...somewhere else besides the walls in my house.  I'm over over over being stuck here.

Aniki's picture

8 WEEKS?! Holey old socks!

I'm with you, halo. Drives in the country where I don't see any houses are a big thing with me right now.

She won her court case. She can now brag about her riches while collecting her child support, and arranging her trips with rando-dudes.

Eff off to illegal campers in my area.

Eff off to wanting a real vacation and only being able to do a "stay cation".

BBQ - I love potatoe salad. Bacon-wrapped scallops with sweet baby rays for dipping.

Grilled peppers, onions and asparagus

Chilled wine. (oh yea we are talking about bbq)

Eff off to those who "run away" every time they hear a truth about themselves they don't like. That will help you go far in life...

Eff off to the stress we can all sense in the air.its crackling! So much strife and negativity!! 

eff off to men who, when you send them a heartfelt flirty text and mention a store they love in the joke, respond with a comment about the store, ignoring the rest. 
 

I have no real problems. 
 

Forn? The other night I sautéed yellow squash, heirloom tomatoes and sweet chili peppers in a cast iron skillet as a side for a nice steak. 
 

I grew all those veggies in my yard!

 

 

Aniki's picture

That DOES sound like a good side for steak!

The other night, I sautéed steak strips and sliced shrooms in butter, rosemary, and garlic. Cooked it down with 3/4 cup of merlot. Nom nom nom...

I can't be on 2 Teams calls at the same time.

Eff of to undiagnosed illness in our pets.  I had to say good bye to my sweet sweet baby this week.  I am  beyond sad and battling the black dog everyday.

Eff of to f'ing wiith the post office. 

Aniki's picture

Oh, hon, I'm so sorry for your loss. {{{{HUGS}}}}

Overscheduling happens to me 3-5 times a week. 2 of the calls are short (usually less than 5 minutes), but essential AND always start on time. That means folks on the other call can yammer on as usual the first 2-3 minutes, then start talking about their caca (in which I have little interest). I typically miss very little.
