I love One Angry Dwarf and Battle of Who Could Care Less by Ben Folds Five - oldies but goodies. Ok, I love that whole album, by the end I am usually singing away and ready to take on the day.
What songs work for you?

Sooo this 19 year old that i work with is faking a pregnancy....her boyfriend broke up with her so she told him shes pregnant to keep him in the picture ...shes isnt really pregnant so now she is having even more unprotected sex with him (yes he came back to her) so that she gets pregnant before her next cycle so she can pretend shes been pregnant the whole time.....she tells me all the time she wants to have a baby bc the baby will "love her" no matter what-_- . She seriously talks about having a baby as a joke.. im pretty sure there are some amazing teen moms out there but this girl is soooo IMMATURE!....she told EVERYONE that she is pregnant including her MOTHER & her mother told her that she has to move out if shes having a baby & yet she is still trying to get pregnant!...i said to her " so you want you and your baby to be homeless ?" & she said " WE WONT BE, iLL GO TO A SHELTER" -_____- her boyfriend is lazy and has nvr had a job and cursed her out when she told him she was pregnant ..but then he came around a few days later (yeahh, that'll last ) she even says things like " WELFARE WILL TAKE CARE OF MY BABY" .....Umm leave the welfare money for the people who actually need it ...this is why this country is so broke...i know there is not much i can no but i just want to RANT...i try to talk her out of it all the time but she doesnt listen .....
