Fake Day.

Today at work was very interesting. It was my jerk bosses 50th birthday, which I guess meant that absolutely every member of the staff lined up to collectively kiss his ass. They decorated with streamers and balloons and posters and tons of "Over The Hill" crap.

I do not UNDERSTAND this about people. If I dislike someone, I dislike you on every freaking day of the year. It doesn't matter. Yet EVERYONE at work besides me sang Happy Birthday, brought presents, signed cards, and were all smiles all day long.

Now, don't get me wrong, I'm not like "Hey, fuck you Mister." or anything like that. I'm not out to wreck his big day-- I just want to be left alone during it. I didn't write anything nasty on the cards, but I also didn't write anything fake-- I just chose not to sign them.

I just don't get how one man can make everyone's lives completely miserable, yet they still choose to kiss up to him on his birthday. I guess I'm more genuine then that.

EDIT: While we're on the topic of birthdays, Jay asked me the other night what I wanted for mine. Honestly, for the first time in my life, I hadn't really realized that it was coming up. It's 2 months away, and I have no idea what I want. I could think of a million things I could get him, but I don't know what I want for me. And then there's things I want for the apartment (a new couch, for one!) but I don't feel right asking for anything expensive, and I also feel that a gift of a couch is sort of... well, impersonal I guess?

I think I'd really like to go on a trip somewhere as my present, but I don't know where or to see what. I'd have to think of something within our price range. I do have some vacation time left, although I don't think he does... I suppose we'll figure something out when the time comes.
