Gig Girl: New Year, Same Old Ridiculous Me

by Gig Girl on January 19, 2012

Gig Girl has done it again

Gig Girl admits – this past January 1st, like many others before it, held not only the promise of a new year, but new opportunities for personal transformation, progression and evolution. While I refrain from making resolutions other than my continued attempt at living fearlessly, I always embrace each new year as a prospect for a clean slate and rekindled hope that I can somehow exude a truer version of my best self. That I will somehow seize the occasion to soften some of my least desirable descriptives and add a litany of new adjectives to all that is Girl Girl for a refreshed definition of me (ambitious, I know, but a Gig Girl can dream..).

Sadly, it seems that, so far 2012 is bearing a striking resemblance to 2011 when it comes to the descriptive pool I’m submerged in.

A few examples of my current, very personal list of adjectives:

stu·pid:  adj \ˈstü-pəd, ˈstyü-\
Definition: slow of mind : obtuse b : given to unintelligent decisions or acts : acting in an unintelligent or careless manner c : lacking intelligence or reason : brutish

Example Of Stupid:
After already losing one computer to a vicious pop-up virus, it was stupid of Gig Girl to incessantly click on that pop up that plagued her Words With Friends app last week (curse you, you silly addictive scrabble rip off!!).

It was also extremely stupid of Gig Girl to be shocked that clicking on said pop up caused the mother load of system crashes on her brand new computer. What C drive?

And finally….
Gig Girl felt really, really, really stupid when she realized that, even after one fatal system crash, she had failed to renew her virus protection software until her computer was literally wiped out at her fingertips.

Then, of course, there’s:

Ironic: adj \ˌī-ˈrä-nik also i-ˈrä-\
Definition:
incongruity between the actual result of a sequence of events and the normal or expected result (2) : an event or result marked by such incongruity.

Examples of Ironic
It is quite ironic (and more than just a teense painful) that Gig Girl downloaded this death wielding virus 10 minutes after completing an article entitled “Important Ways To Avoid Downloading Harmful Computer Viruses.”  Sigh.

And let us not forget:

un·com·fort·able: adj \ˌən-ˈkəm(p)(f)-tə(r)-bəl, -ˈkəm(p)-fə(r)-tə-bəl, -ˈkəm-fə(r)-bəl\
Definition: causing discomfort or annoyance

Examples Of Uncomfortable:
Gig Girl felt mighty uncomfortable when she had to explain to the Hubs that, once again, technology had whooped her proverbial butt and she needed him to don his IT Help Desk Cape to swoop in for the rescue. (Which he did…for over 3 hours and somehow managed to completely salvage my hard drive…and he didn’t roll his eyes once that I could see).

While this ordeal  has made me wonder if I’m just too darn, ahem, “mature” for change, it has given rise to at least one new self-coined adjective to the list of all that I am:

Idioclownerratic:  \i-dē-ə-ˈklau̇n- i-ˈra-tik\
Definition:  See Gig Girl

I guess there’s always 2013…

C. – If it makes you feel better … you post reminds me I haven’t done a back-up since November. Thanks to you I’m going to do one right now. Fearlessness includes sharing not just the good but admitting some of the bad and ugly about ourselves . Thank you. Take care – Susan

Thanks Susan – I love your take on fearlessness! Made me feel sooooo much better :)
