Today was a good kind of a day, if you don't count the 80% of every day that I spend with my hypochondria. I really haven't updated my Disease Du Jour at the side of this blog in awhile, have I? It's a shame, because I have had just everything. I forget to write it down, is all.
Anyway, today was one of our work parties, and if you monitor my every move, you will know that I'm on the par-tayy committee at work. And that's what it's called. The par-tayy committee.
We were GONNA have a Valentine's party, but it got canceled because we weren't in the mood for love or something, so this time we had a St. Patrick's theme. I was in charge of music and beverage distribution. I had Marvin make a CD of Celtic music, and songs like When Irish Eyes are Smiling, and then also I had him throw in Irish bands like U2 and such.
As for the beverages, we all got drunk as lords. No. There is someone else who is really into cooking that made this really good green punch, and then we had soft drinks, and I got to be the person who said, "Would you like punch?" It was exciting.
The point of dragging you through this tedious story is that we also had a work trivia game, where you had to answer questions about the workplace and my team won! And I'm telling you, we won because I knew how many employees we had. They told me when I was hired, and for some reason I retained the information. Because there is something deeply wrong with me. It's 432. That's the number. Four hundred thirty-two. Don't forget.
I won tickets to the movie theater I go to all the time! Oh, I like winning. I think I'll go see The Wrestler, which I haven't seen yet.
Also three, you may have noticed in photos of my house, or if you have peeped in my windows, that I have a pie painting:
which is kind of funny given the theme of this blog and all. This painting was done by my friend Maud, who I just miss so much I could spit up, if I did things like spit up. When I think about how I miss my friends in LA, often the first person who comes to mind is Maud. She was just so much fun, and always laughed at everything I said.
She had an art show at her house once, and Marvin and I bought this painting and I have always really liked it. Well, today, out of the clear blue sky, she sent me her Jello painting!
I TOLD her I wanted it, but I didn't think she'd just put it in the mail and SEND it to me! How much do I heart Maud? Don't you wish you had a big dish of red Jello right now?
So, thank you, Maud. Today is obviously my lucky day. Marvin and I are going out to dinner now, and maybe we'll be their millionth customer or something.
Goodness, I hope Jello is on their dessert menu.
