Oh my gawd, this day is a WASH. Is a wash a bad thing? or is it just an even-ing out? What I mean is this day can suck it. First of all, note I'm here 12 hours late. When we last spoke, swearing we'd stay together forever and exchanging class rings (isn't mine nice?), … Continue reading Morning coat at 8 p.m.
Why does everyone bug you when you're busy? Have you ever noticed that? If you're bored stiff, your social world is a desert. But if you've got shit to do, people are crawling out from every damn crack in the wall. Waving their antennae. I had a busy week at work last week, but when … Continue reading Why Sussex
Google Photos likes to show me what I've been up to in other years. Three years ago today, mom came to visit me in my Year Abroad house. Tallulah was happy to see her gramma. Oh, Talu. Someone mentioned in the comments the other day that they wondered if my more curls/less Voltaire hair was … Continue reading Andy Voltaire
Tell me if this is universal or it's just me. You're extra full of things to do for a few days, and you think okay. I can deal with this. I'm all right. In fact, for me, it's more fun when work is busy rather than: do this assignment. Wait a bit. Now do THIS … Continue reading Coming down with a case of LaCroix
Because I don't have enough going on, today I'm starting the keto diet. You know it's a good sign when you don't get to the grocery store to BUY your keto food till 9 p.m. Which is what I did yesterday. Look, I have a lot of kittening and catting and dog-walking to do after … Continue reading Keto My Heart
Eds won't stop acting the fool this morning. "Come sit and chew Blu and be a nice dog," I just commanded him. Really, I should put off covering that chair for longer. It's not disgusting enough. I guess if I recover that chair, putting it by the back door again is out, right? I need, … Continue reading Next to the astronaut
My boss, fmr., got her new StitchFix for April. Let's judge! I ran into her office and watched her open her box like it was Xmas morning. X-Files morning. Like a morning with my ex. I was a big fan of this shirt with birds, as I enjoy a bird on anything. Except perhaps on … Continue reading Gettin’ our Stitch Fix. See what I did, there?
Hang on. I'm strappin' on Laila Ali. Do you think every time I say I'm strapping on Laila Ali that the real Laila Ali gets a little thrill and doesn't know why? "Ooo, what is that? Always happens around 8 a.m. Eastern." Plus also, do you think the fine folks at The Green Bean coffeehouse … Continue reading A whole post literally about nothing
Yesterday morning, after I'd gotten up early and stressed own self over adding polls to this here not-blog (good participation, by the way!), I got an email. "Can you knock this out this morning?" I wasn't even at work yet, and already I was anxious. It's this big, several-tabbed Excel document that I copy edit … Continue reading How to Have a Migraine: A Step-By-Step Guide
What are we on? Like, day 193 of this cold? That's my estimate. Yesterday at work, I minced over to one of the seven people who are actually working this week, and announced, "I have a cold." I may've even brought m'Kleenex box over, for dramatic effect. Which should be the title of my book: … Continue reading For Dramatic Effect
In a stunning display of self-centeredness, and in preparation for my move to another computer, I looked through the webcam photos I have here and came to the conclusion that my six years with ("with") Ned have aged me. Above, I had talked to Ned online, but not dated him yet. On my way to … Continue reading June ages, like a fine wine. Or a bottle of ripple you leave out too long.
A good part about how they've put me on multiple accounts at work is that I've gotten to know more coworkers who aren't Griff. Also, I've gotten to know people I've worked with all these years, but rarely talked to because we weren't on the same account. It can get (ready?) siloed at work. One … Continue reading Drivin’ all the old men crazy.
On Friday night, my many wrinkles and I stayed home and copy edited, but NOT before I screwed up at work and felt just awful about it. Do you remember that project I took home last weekend? The point of taking it home was so that when it came back from the printer and I … Continue reading Weekend recap! Oh, June. Zzzzzz.
For years, we've been doing this project at work that is what you might call detailed. If you're a proofreader or a copy editor, all three of you, it has everything that takes time. Names you need to check? Yes. Numbers? Yes. Details that're listed in several places and they all must match? Yes. Fact-checking … Continue reading The one where June misses Halloween
Here's what I like about myself. I mean, other than the obvious "everything." I recently got matched with a cool-looking dude on the Bumble, there, and with that particular dating site, they give you 24 hours to write the person after you've been matched, and the woman has to write first. This cuts down dramatically … Continue reading Chicken parm for the marm
It was inevitable, I suppose, that during a pertinent conversation with my friend Hamlet, in which we were extolling Patty and Selma from The Simpsons, that I was struck by HOW MAGNIFICENT it would be to name cats Patty and Selma. It's these epiphanies that make me say, Well, I could just jaunt off to … Continue reading What is wrong with this emu?
I did many things this weekend, but one thing I did not do was much sleeping. Internet: Why, Joon? Joon: Noneya, Internet. On Friday afternoon, I was toiling at m'desk when the phone rang. "WHAT." I thought, as I am cheerful and elegant about being interrupted when in a flow. It was my doctor's office. … Continue reading Me and you and a dog with Blu
This will surely make the more nervous of you, you know, nervouser, but I can only write you for a few minutes, as I have the jury duty and need to be downtown by 8:15, which, WHAT THE HELL, judicial system? Annoy. There is, in fact, a sort of major trial starting today in my … Continue reading Mum-y blogger
It's the last day of my expansive vacation, in which I saw many exotic things, such as Chapel Hill. It's true; I finally returned those coolers to Chapel Hill. If you're just tuning in, and why do I keep saying that? No one is just now tuning in. Anyway, let's say you just tuned in, … Continue reading June’s stay-at-home vacation. Annoying morning readers, since Monday.
Thursday, August 3, 2017 6:30 a.m.: Alarm goes off, hit snooze. 6:39: Alarm goes off, hit snooze. 6:48: " 6:57: "..... 7:33: OH MY GOD. SERIOUSLY? Scream out of bed, dash to shower. Wash hair. We curly people don't wash our hair every day. Many of us have a concoction we create in dollar spray … Continue reading Spa Day
