rightio The owner at Dunkin Donuts called me ma'am today. I was a little horrified as he is in his late 30's and I'm only 25...ma'am, seriously? I like miss. Hell, I think we should call even the older (like 75) miss, it makes a girls day. But ma'am? Seriously? 

Watched Grey's last night and was hoping it would be just as good and low and behold, it was! It's taken me a bit to catch up, but alas, I love my show all over again.

So, today is one of the attorneys last days. He's been the first person since I've been here that has been let go. (aka fired for effing everything up and not caring). As one knows who reads this blog, I have had issues with the girls I work with. Yet, I did go out with them last week for drinks. A little more background, this attorney who is leaving is getting married in two weeks. The girls are all invited and all the people going out tonight (the younger associates) are invited, but I'm not invited to the wedding. Even though with their classy attitude (insert sarcasm here) they talk about the wedding I'm not invited to non-stop. Don't get me wrong, I'm not offended or hurt by this in the least. Quite frankly his office is the one I'm going to be going for if/when I graduate law school. He also is everything I can't stand in that he's lazy, he doesn't care about the opportunities our bosses have given him, he makes my life harder in that he bills for something and I wind up doing it all over again and can't bill for it. So, no, I'm not offended. I just think it's a little rude for them to KNOW I wasn't invited and talk about it in front of me. I digress, though. 

The girls planned for everyone to go out for drinks tonight for his last day. They planned this three days ago. They were talking about it at lunch yesterday and almost like 'crap, does she have to come' told me everyone was going. It wasn't necessarily an invite but a 'I guess since your at the table we'll tell you'. 

NOW, my thing is, I don't particularly want to go. This weekend is my birthday weekend and tomorrow night is my fun little gathering in the city. The Rangers play the Islanders again and that's a pretty awesome game to watch on daddo's new tv. So I'm thinking, of no, I'm not going and dealing with all the petty bull shit and quite frankly, besides one or two of the associates, I don't particularly care about anyone of them. Let alone want to spend my time with them.

However, would I look like bitch o' the year if I didn't go?

I just want it to be Saturday when I can be with the people who I REALLY REALLY adore....ya know?

I wouldn't go but that's just me. I've never gone to any of our after work functions because of my 2nd job, but there's always an e-mail that goes out for that stuff and it's sent to the whole department. If it weren't for my 2nd job - I still don't think I'd go.

Grey's - OMG. It's so weird to see them and have them not be interns anymore!! Poor Bambi.

Greys..I found that sooo funny especially the deer and Izzie. But the end, I did the whole hand to the mouth thats openly gaping. I was just glad that Lexie didn't become the third woman in Derek and Mere's little thing. Although last season Meredith annoyed me a bit with her whining..this season I hope she can grow up, ya know?

The deer was hilarious. My jaw dropped at the end too!! I wanted to say noooooooooooooo, but then I think I knew it was coming. There was something I had read online about the premier that said something about "knowing what was going to happen with the Mer/Der relationship" so I guess that was it!

Dude, it's your birthday, how hard is it to make up plans you have with family or friends to skip out?

I'm a big believer lately in doing what you do because you want to. Not because you have to, especially when there will be more trouble than not. (Of course some things I still do, like get up to go to work, or go to bowling, though I did skip the first week because I REALLY did not want to go) So don't go. It'll probably just be worse in the end, and if you don't go, the worst that will happen is you watch a great game on an awesome TV and be with people who always invite you places and WANT you to be there.

very true. I just don't want to be treated like further crap..then again, I was just talking to my boss and she advised it's not like I really want to go...ya know? Also, I think that if they wanted me there instead of telling me yesterday, they should have told me Wed. when they invited EVERYONE else...ya know? I'm not telling anyone here my birthday is this weekend.

I think you should be more concerned with how your bosses and people above view you. You've already said how they compliment you a lot and make points about how you don't get dragged into stuff with the other girls. It it really going to make it all better because you go this one time? Probably not.

I feel like the tone was off on my comment now that I re-read it. I didn't mean to sound patronizing or anything, just trying to re-inforce my two cents.

Love ya. Have fun with your bday!
