drama masks

On Thursday afternoon I was offered a full time position in one of my part-time ventures. More money. More freedom. More holidays.  No colleagues. No pressure. No problem. Same amount of traveling as the office is a mere two blocks from my current location, so no leaving town. Also the industry is uplifting – so no negativity.

EMOTIONS HIGH

On Thursday evening I had a godawful meeting with the dreaded Chairman of my complex and his cronies. I was undermined, degraded, berated and generally insulted. If they were merely my Trustees I’d tell them all to go get fucked, but unfortunately they are also my clients and so I had to bite my tongue and swallow their shit.

EMOTIONS LOW

On Friday morning I was finally registered as a Director on the board of a new government-regulated association. Yes, I am the token whitey and no I don’t care that I was merely selected for my pale face and English name. I willingly jumped aboard the gravy train and I look forward to reaping the dividends with little to no work.

EMOTIONS HIGH

On Friday afternoon my favourite client sent Boss Lady a scathing email insinuating that I had dropped the ball on various issues and wasn’t servicing them to their satisfaction. Because according to them I should be able to trace motor vehicles not residing in the complex. Yup, I work for Metro too. Idiots.

EMOTIONS LOW

On Saturday evening Goddess came over for an evening of 50’s glamour and a fabulous five course meal, including the most decadent desserts. I exceeded even my own expectations regarding decor and food; and my first hosted dinner party was nothing less than perfect in every way.

EMOTIONS HIGH

On Sunday morning Liam had the audacity to use a picture of Marilyn Monroe and Drake that I had sent him just before he wasn’t ready for a relationship, as his profile picture. What the fuck? How dare he! He only knows MM because of me! Even Mimi questioned the meaning behind that act. Whatever. Get a life and leave my Marilyn alone.

EMOTIONS LOW

On Sunday afternoon Angel came first in a K1 [one man kayak] race in  the annual river race between the various Gauteng Sea Scouts Troops. She also came second in the K2 [two man girl] race; with her Scouting Troop coming first overall. Not bad for someone who only starting canoeing a few weeks ago.

EMOTIONS HIGH

On Monday morning Star failed his driver’s license test. After practicing for hours over the weekend, as well as prior to his test; with him making no mistakes; when leaving the yard he hit the pavement. The next available booking was the day after Star’s learners license expires; and the only other centres with suitable dates are doorengone.

EMOTIONS LOW

On Monday night Mimi offered the use of her wayward husband to take Star to a testing station on the western side of the province in order to book for his drivers prior to the learners expiration. The dude also offered to take Star driving every day to build up his confidence again, as after yesterdays debacle, he was ready to throw in the towel.

EMOTIONS HIGH

It’s Tuesday morning and I am at work [depressing]. Still waiting to hear if my salary demands expectations have been met [frustrating]; although the organisation will only have feedback next Tuesday [hopeful]. Star has a booking to do his drivers next Tuesday [relieved]. Tonight I’m attending an AGM [dread] and will in turn miss my Hip Hop class [disappointment] and will return home in the dead of night [cold].

EMOTIONS ALL OVER THE PLACE
