Wine & Cheese – 19th Serving

Welcome to Wine & Cheese, my weekly, Wednesday whine session.

Every week on Wednesday I devote a blog to whining. Despite being a really happy, positive person, I do have things that annoy me at times. I never let anything grate on my nerves for long but thought it would be fun to vent them periodically in my blogs.

I also feel that good things, the cheese in life, should be acknowledged as well.

I’m even going to throw in a bit of dessert, a piece of virtual chocolate, something that made me laugh or smile just a bit more than normal.

Sit back and join me now for the 19th serving of some wine and cheese!

ARGH JOB HUNTING!!!! I hate job hunting.  But it is the end of the painting season for exterior work, and the interior  work isn’t enough to keep the offices at full staff so I’m off after Friday.  Not good,  Christmas is coming and I have bills  to pay.  I have an impressive resume,  so if you know someone hiring I will share it.  Meanwhile I am NOT happy, I hate looking for a job, hate going through training to acquire the knowledge needed at a new job.  GRRRRRRRRR

Time Warner – their customer service  for their crappy Internet is pissing off the entire Diva Den.  We’re up, we’re down, we’re up, we’re down…we unplug the routers and plug them in and we are up..for a while..then we are down again.  We’ve had the equipment  replaced twice.  Cincinnati Bell don’t get too  smug, yours was down more than up which is why we  switched  in the first place.  This is a new problem with TW but it is totally infuriating us chicks with laptops that have jobs to find, work to do, social media to creep on and games to play.  Get your act together!

Ebenezer Scrooge Types – Oh get the heck over it, so what so the stores are playing Christmas music, and they have all the stuff out already.  This country  is headed to hell in a hand basket of late,  people have plenty of tough times right now, is it REALLY so bad if we have a little  Christmas cheer EARLY?  What can it hurt to kick in the spirit now? Everyone always says “gee it would be nice to see the Christmas spirit all year wouldn’t it?” so now it’s early, a little longer time to enjoy those cheerful tunes and favorite hymns we only listen to in December.  Paste a smile  on and sing a few verses of your favorite holiday jingle and be happy!


CHRISTMAS MUSIC AND DECORATIONS are out and about and I LOVE it!  I totally love the holidays and the only reason our Christmas trees are not up already is that Diva Boo and I are exercising restraint for the sake of Diva Mom.  I suspect she knows the neighbors already are not sure about us so she isn’t too keen on us removing all doubt that we are freaks.  But I am LOVING that the holiday hoopla is already under way…YIPPIE!!!
