OT - Eff Off/Forn Friday

Aniki's picture

Yep, it's another combo! I'm so ready for the weekend, I already ditched my over-the-shoulder-boulder-holder. Which leads right into...

Eff off to:

  • Bras. What's the deal with the inch-thick padding in bras big enough to hold half of a good-sized melon?? My boobs are already prominent. The last thing I need is to push them up and out! If I wore one up those things, I could balance my coffee mug on top and drink through my eyeballs. Sheesh.
  • More bras. Ever have an underwater break through? I've had blood running down my chest from an underwire that overpowered the weak stitches and stabbed me. OOOWWWW!!!
  • King Pita refuses to get laryngitis. Who has an In with the Klingons or Romulans? Help me get this effer abducted and off planet.  Dash 1


Forn Friday

Forn is 'food' and 'p0rn' combined. I made pizza last night. Gourmet style. Olive oil and oregano on a spinach crust, topped with mozzarella, prosciutto, pears, and gorgonzola.  Nom nom nom... It was soooooo darn good, I'm seriously thinking about making it again tonight. Just add pinot grigio...

What's your favorite fancy pizza?


Hope you have a stress-free, fun-filled, enjoyable weekend!

Are you in charge of any of these meetings with King PITA? If so, maybe you can set time limits on everyone's speaking moments. It's actually recommended as a meeting management tool by project management experts. I HATE talkers too.

Your pizza sounds amazing.

I just brought home 5 Guys Burgers and Fries for DH, DD17, and myself. My belly is in heaven.

Eff off to:

1. Tailgaters in the right lane. When I drive in the right lane slowly, I am not wrong. On the same token eff off to slow drivers in the left lane.

2. Eff off to COVID-19. I'm sick of it and how it's affecting my DH's job hunt and DD17's senior year. I'm over it.

IAW, I wish! I have zero control over any meetings with KP. My boss - when she's on - says nothing. 

Hear you on both eff offs; especially covid. I want to live!!!

A few years ago, I finally decided, no more underwires!  It was liberating!  Now i've decided, no more bras!  Even better!

Lucky you! I would LOVE to go braless, but work will frown on that. If I ever get back in the office...

Eff off to everyone at work, who can't seem to get it together even when we know what we need to do. My boss was put on notice by our board, so he'll probably be out. Since I work closely with him, if he's out, I'm guess I'm job hunting at the least opportune time. 

Eff off to DH's family who could create chaos and drama out of anything...and always seems to blame DH for that chaos and drama, even if he wasn't connected to it at all. 

Eff off to overly dramatic stepson. I totally let him have it last weekend because he was being a whiny jerk (and also because he was again talking sh%t about us to BM, but he doesn't know that I know that). His response was to run out of the house and cry, leading DH to tell me I was being "too confrontational". 

Eff off to DH who can't manage the whiny, jerkiness of his children. I'm now taking a break from being a SM and he can deal with his children's whining manipulation without me (he likes to have me around because they are less likely to manipulate when I am there). 

Eff off to COVID-19 and especially the resulting angst that has overtaken the world right now. It seems like everyone is angry all at once (understandable, I suppose, but still not pleasant to deal with).

Hugs to you!!!

If it's any consolation, I know 5 people who have started new jobs in the last 5 months. Prayers it all works out for you. 

Ha, enjoy that break from the skids. Did you stock up on Midol for your DH? Wink

I understand the emotional upheaval, but not those who channel that anger into destruction of any kind: emotional, physical...  I took out mine on stubborn weeds and pounded deck nails.

I don't have an eff off today. Job, DH, skids, kids, pets, all going well. I'm lucky and I know it. Of course, that could change in the next 10 minutes.

But I do like forn. And pizza. I'm considering making homemade crust this weekend to have on hand for quick meals. DH is pretty traditional with pizza toppings, but I like pesto instead of a marinara with chicken or just veggies.

Are personal pizzas an option?

Mmmmmm....pesto. I like it topped with prosciutto, shrooms, and goat cheese!

I am so grateful to have a job where I can work from home, but my eff off is to the fact that people cannot end Zoom meetings on time.  Just because it's virtual doesn't mean you get to KEEP TALKING, UGH.  I keep my video off so they can't see my expressions.

That pizza sounds awesome!  I am loving the peak of the season produce.

Do you have KP relatives on those calls? Naturally, that poopiehead is the ONLY one who uses the freaking camera. ~eyeroll~

It was delicious! Need to figure out what to do with these peaches. Not enough for a pie. Peach Bellini Popsicles? Some kind of coffee cake?

There is one I refer to as Colin Robinson, which will make sense if your've seen the What We Do in the Shadows series.

Those popsicles sound wonderful!

I have both underwires and no underwires and lots of sports bras. I'm just a D (or a large C according to professional bra-measurers) but I like a little oomph with a good bra.  So does DH :-)  Hate too much extra padding too!  I have a long torso so my beef is with the strap length. I have space between my chest and my shoulders and some brands are 3" too short - are some boobs up at armpit level????

Pizza!  DH loves loves it but has to be careful due to his lactose intolerance. No pill, no pizza. He doesn't like cheeseless pies so olive oil base doesn't work for him. My fave is super simple. Thin crust, mushrooms, prosciutto and a little red pepper flakes.

Cover, I've had that same problem with straps. As it is, there isn't much left to lengthen...

I'd throw some goat cheese on your face pizza... *kiss2*

I am currently addicted to this creamy, mild blue cheese from Germany. THAT would be great on that pizza - in small amounts, but, yes, I am thinking....DH hates blue tho.

Hi Aniki! It's been a while. I heard you had some health problems but glad to see you back for eff off Friday.

Eff off to my SD21 who moved out on Wednesday and I came back Thursday. I am taking her room and making it an office. I was in there taking pictures and planning my room before she even moved out. She has been nothing but drama for months. She wants me gone and BM back with DH, which would not happen even if I was never in the picture. She has been nothing but passive aggressively nasty to me after using me for years and now throwing me to the trash. Fortunately, DH sees her for who she is and he said when she left no one was sad and SD18 didn't even say good bye to her.

Hi Chmmy!! Doing okay, swamped at work. Currently nursing a broken pinky toe. *wacko*

Wow! Glad that toxic twit is outta there! Burn some sage before you decorate. Wink

I bought some bras from Spanx and I love them, good coverage, lift but not up to my neck lift, and no underwires. 
For food we have a local restaurant that just posted they have smoked salmon fresh and ready...nom nom nom!

Aniki's picture

Advice, I have leggings from Spanx, but have never looked at the bras. Didn't know they had themA 

Mmmmmm.... freshly smoked salmon. Makes me want to buy several cheeses and some crackers. Add wine, honey, and a small selection of jam/jelly/fruit butter and we're talking romantic picnic for me and DH! <3
