That earthquake in LA today made me so homesick I could have spit up. I am sorry, but earthquakes are fun. …You know, unless you're in a really bad one, which I never was.
I emailed everyone I could think of, all at once, to get the guff. It was fun, because everyone wrote back and I got to hear what all my friends were doing today at 11:42 a.m. Pacific time.
One person watched their coworker get hit in the head with his Batman poster (but he kept talking on his business call, which you have to admit is impressive). Another friend ran a breakneck pace down the stairs at work, in her heels. And my stepsister? Just kept eating her potato salad.
My stepsister weighs about 14 pounds and eats like a linebacker. She has the metabolism of a hummingbird. Yes, I do want to kick her skinny ass.
In other crushing news, I went to the store this weekend and bought 8 million dollars worth of vegetarian food, and when I made my mac and cheese today at work? Turns out I accidentally bought BACON FLAVORED mac and cheese. Who even ever HEARD of bacon mac and cheese? A woman at work told me I must subconsciously want meat, but she is the same poor soul who broke her arm at step aerobics last week, so what is HER subconscious telling her?
Oh, and by the way? She got to pick her cast color, and she picked what she called Duke blue. And finally, after living here for a year, I have noticed that University of North Carolina and Duke? Their colors? Both blue. Now, people are trying to tell me that there is a distinct difference in these blues, and to that I say, blush and bashful.
Also too? I ordered a yoga DVD, which when it arrives I am gonna encourage Marvin to do with me, because (a) his back hurts a lot and (12) it will just be fun to watch.
It seems like I had other pressing news but it is time for dog park. Dog park? See Cooper!?!
She will probably even know that I WROTE that and any minute now will be bouncing around here like a super ball. What is IN super balls to make them like that? Probably the same thing that's in me, keeping me from staying on a topic.
