8:03 AM: I walked in to Mrs. O’Leary and Roseanne Barr are shouting across the aisle to each other, with complete disregard for their neighbors…
Roseanne Barr: So you got the refrigerator?
Mrs. O’Leary: Yeah. It’s a top-and bottom, though. Not a side-by-side. So you’ve got the freezer on top and the refrigerator on bottom.
Roseanne Barr: Ok, yeah.
Because she’s seen a fucking refrigerator before…
Mrs. O’Leary: And I got the white. Because the stainless steel was not just one hundred, but hun-dred-s more than the white. So I just went with the white because I’m like “Ya know what? Screw it.”
Roseanne Barr: Well, at least you’ve got a working refrigerator now!
Mrs. O’Leary: Yeah. At least I’ve got that going for me. I also watched one of the stupidest movies I think I’ve ever seen in my life.
Roseanne Barr: What was it?
Mrs. O’Leary: Have you ever seen that Silver Linings Playbook?
Roseanne Barr: Yeah.
Mrs. O’Leary: What was so great about this movie?
Roseanne Barr: I think it was up for an Academy award.
Mrs. O’Leary: She did. And I’m like WHY?! I didn’t think it was anything to write home about.
Mrs. O’Leary must watch movies like Statler and Waldorf. “What is this garbage? Why am I watching this crap? Who the hell gave her an Oscar for this?”
12:17 PM: Phyllis got some inside scoop…
Phyllis: Carson Kressley?
Carson Kressley: Yes?
Phyllis: Apparently there are breakfast pastries in the kitchen?
Carson Kressley: No, I just looked!
Phyllis: Well, I got an email from my friend who was just in the kitchen and she saw some things.
Carson Kressley: JUST NOW?!
Phyllis: Yes, apparently.
Carson Kressley: Could they have been put there in the last five minutes?
Phyllis: Maybe. I’m not sure when they were brought there, but she said there are pastries.
Carson Kressley: Well, I’ll go look now. I need to refresh my tea anyway.
This is a recurring thing. He feels judged for sprinting to the kitchen for pastries, so he uses his tea for cover.
12:19 PM: Update to the pastry situation…
Carson Kressley: It was a smaaaaall tray. And there was someone standing in front of it.
Phyllis: So you didn’t get anything?
Carson Kressley: No, someone was standing in front of it. But there may be something left if you want.
Phyllis: No, whatever is there probably won’t go well with my lunch.
I don’t care what the hell I’ve got for lunch. If I see a pastry I want, it’s mine. Screw whatever I’ll be eating for lunch.
1:55 PM: Grace just listened to a voicemail aloud, on speakerphone.
