I cannot sit still today y’all. Cannot focus. Cannot stand the confines of this cubicle. I am fidgety. Whew. I’m making lists and thinking of things I need and want to do and getting not much of anything done in this whole chaotic process that’s swirling in my head. I will look into mind-quieting meditation… Sometimes I wonder if a set daily routine would help … Continue reading The ADD is strong with this one
I thought since last night’s walk was so pain free and relatively easy that this morning’s bike ride would be the same. Um, no. Apparently my legs are still in rebellion mode because those 6 miles were more than a bit lackluster. There is one TINY hill on this route and I was struggling to get up it. But it still felt good to be … Continue reading morning ride and the state of my brain
There’s a car that always parks in the same space in the internal depths of the parking garage. It is always shrouded in a car cover concealing what must be something pretty special to the owner. I can hardly stand it and every time I walk by I just want to take a peek underneath to see what the big deal is about this vehicle. … Continue reading its a fiat i know it
My “grey matter” as a former English teacher used to refer to our adolescent brains, has been completely mush the last couple of days. Maybe its too much Dora and not enough veggies or something, I dunno. I do the whole zoning out thing quite well but some days its way worse than others. I need a challenge of some sort. Some new stimulation or … Continue reading zombie brain
This morning I heard myself yell up the stairs to kiddo as she skittered away from me to avoid putting on her socks like I’d told her to multiple times. “You are fixin’ to get a time out young lady!!!!” Yes, I said “fixin” just like that, without the g, and I added in a stern “YOUNG LADY” for shock value. I cringed inside as … Continue reading where did i go?
I think a lot. I think too much. Right now I’m thinking that the clock is stuck at 2:51 and will never move again. I think I need chocolate because that’s what I think everyday around 3pm. I think I want another tattoo but can’t decide on what or where. I think one day I’ll go to the airport and tell the ticket agent to … Continue reading think
I am not a fan of small talk nor am I very good at it. Post holiday small talk tops the list of all categories of dreaded chitty-chatty-for-no-reason banter. Hello person with me in the elevator who I don’t know but who I think works in accounting…”how was your Christmas” they ask me…I say “it was great, how was yours?” And we carry on. This … Continue reading grumpy mcgrumperson

Hi. I’m in one of those “I feel like talking/typing but I have nothing of value to say but am going to post anyway” kind of moods. Which usually ends up to be long rambling paragraphs about baby poop or the dream I had last night. But you don’t mind or else you wouldn’t be here reading. Or maybe you’ve already clicked off and are … Continue reading aaaaaand here we are
Long post deleted. Sometimes Dilbert says it best. Continue reading today
This is me. Spreading sunshine everywhere I go. Yep yep. I mean, can’t you tell? Heh. The not-so-funny thing is, I really am a fun lively laughing joking person when I’m out from behind a desk. Can we say “you got off at the wrong stop lady”? Yes we can. Eh, anyway. Stuff ‘n things. Ummmmmm, I got nuthin’ I guess. Oh wait, here’s some stuff…the … Continue reading why the long face?
So, that post below where I was going to “turn off my light and enjoy the silence” for a bit? Yeah, I totally fell asleep. Yeah, I was totally late to work. Yeah, I am totally talking like a valley girl. Good thing I’d thought to set my alarm, just in case. I’m in somewhat of a rather large dilemma with “the thing”…it could go one … Continue reading this needs a snazzy title

why doesn’t the name “wally” rhyme with “sally”? this occurred to me on the drive in this morning and will not go away from my brain. much like my question about why the last part of the word “arkansas” is not pronounced like the word “kansas”, or vice versa. these things bug me. and this is why i do not care for grammar. if whoever … Continue reading ok

So early and yet, I’m already contemplating bed. Doubtful I’ll go but I am contemplating anyway. Someone is rapid firing some type of firearm somewhere in the vicinity. Nice. I don’t get it. I want to teach English in another country. Always thought that would be cool. You can blame a Lonely Planet tweet on putting that idea in my head tonight. They even tell me … Continue reading it’s 7:27 pm
So here I am, hiding out from my day job in a random-to-you coffee shop trying to think of something interesting to post. And the words just don’t come. Nothing is in my brain suitable for this screen. I’ve been in a weird place lately. Well, maybe no weirder than I usually am. I guess it’s just me, being my restless, unpacified self. Oh, here’s something random … Continue reading and here we are
I have tried very hard to like Conan O’Brien but I just don’t. I booked my flight to NYC today! Going next month for a weekend. Tomorrow is my Friday. As I believe I have mentioned before. I ran for the first time in weeks tonight and it felt great. Much walking but some running. I am loving The Time Traveler’s Wife on this second … Continue reading sleepy time? no.
Yep, just made that title up. Straight from my brilliance. Be jealous. I am kind of digging this article…They’re On Their Own. My parents didn’t pay for my college. I had scholarships, loans and a job. I graduated. It worked out. Sort of. I’m not saying this is what The Accountant and I will do (especially since Mr. Mad Planner has already got a college savings account set … Continue reading fee foo fah
So I know I’ve only been away a few short days, but I’ve missed my lil’ space here on the internets. Been busy with…well, honestly, I don’t even know. Nothing specific, just life stuff I guess. “Life Stuff”…that is such an indistinct term isn’t it? Anywho. Let’s see, here’s some highlights from the past few days… Had a “me day” last week. This entails taking Sam … Continue reading well haaaiiiiii bloggy blog o’ blogginess!
When I get real bored, I like to drive downtown and get a great parking spot, then sit in my car and count how many people ask me if I’m leaving. ~-Steven Wright Continue reading it’s come to this…
i’m wearing what i call a “gramma sexy” shirt today. sexy without a jacket over it ’cause it’s got a keyhole back, high neck and sleeveless. but with the required corporate world jacket on over it, it looks kinda “gramma-ee”. but in a sexy gramma way if you know what i mean. its monday and i had to come to work. i know you all … Continue reading there are no capital letters in this post
I went to bed early last night. Go me. I really should do this more often as I woke up a bit more rested than normal. Funny how that works. But then I woke up in somewhat of a pissy mood this morning. Maybe its the constant rain, maybe it was a frustrating conversation I had last night, or maybe it’s just me being a … Continue reading wrong side of the bed
