day 11864: a "huh" moment

Interesting... I just called home and I think my mother is drunk. Or super tired. Otherwise, I'm not sure how else to explain why she asked me (multiple times) what I was doing. Because doing nothing a mere 30 seconds ago still means that I'm doing absolutely nothing.

Actually, I just didn't want her to know that I was sitting at home drinking by myself. It's been an odd kind of week.

day 11860: not concussed

Random thought of the day... I'd be extremely disappointed if I went to Ireland and the air did not smell like Irish Spring.

day 11849: uh

Rachel Getting Married is not a happy movie.

Definitely not something to watch when you're feeling down and looking for a pick me up.

day 11845: 524,600 minutes x 5 + 24 hrs for the leap year

This morning, I walked into the monkeyco offices to a cube decorated with balloons and streamers. WTF, I thought, my birthday is in December! It wasn't even my second birthday (March 17) or my third birthday (May 5). Someone in HR must have gotten it wrong... the clowns.


Joke was on me of course. Bosslady (aka TAB aka QWW) remembered that yesterday was my 5th anniversary with monkeyco and spent the early hours of the morning decorating my cube. She even baked me a cake, which was pretty darn awesome since I baked my last birthday cake. Yes, I have a darn great boss - you should be jealous.

Mired in my own Monday morning misery, I had totally forgotten. It had never even crossed my mind that 5 years had gone by so quickly... (well most days... some days dragged for decades) and while I know I complain a lot and generally pray for days to go by faster, there's a part of me that wishes that life would slow down and stop pulling me along.

5 years is a long time. Some days I wonder if I have anything to show for it except for an expanded waistline from all that cake.

day 11841: new toys and new boys...

So sue me, things have been a little busy... I've done a complete 180 from a non-dater to a super dater. Have met a lot of new people, have had a lot of worlds collide, but alas, no keepers. I bought a new little netbook toy for myself. Still undecided/uncertain about the teeny weeny keyboard, but it's only been a couple of hours of playtime and things seem to be a little more fluid already. Have been trying to figure out how to build a living wall for my condo - unfortunately, my thumb does not appear to be any shade of green whatsoever, so maybe I'll be hacking myself a fakey to pretend.

Oh, and thank goodness for bio-degradable vanilla scented dog poopy bags.
