Ugggh blocking your ex on Facebook doesn't get rid of pictures she's in but isn't tagged in which doesn't prevent having panic attacks at work. Stupid Facebook.

I really don't want to go to work today. There is something big and very negative that is about to happen and I just want to hide at home until it does. Because bossman is super grumpy.

How much longer can they call the show New Girl New Girl? Isn't the show at least five seasons old by now?

AMAZING. So, um, how does one get to be a wildlife care assistant?

It's with a wildlife rehabilitation center! I shadowed the director of the center years ago and have always wanted to volunteer there. I've never been able to in the past because they want a six month commitment and I'm never sure what my schedule will be like. But I know my class schedule through September, so I finally can!

It's going to be mostly food prep, cleaning, etc. but during the Spring it's baby season and the volunteers are in charge of feedings, so BABY SQUIRRELS.

I'm told they become vicious mother forkers when their eyes open though, so in a few months I will probably be sick of squirrels when I am covered in bite marks haha

So this long-time customer of mine, who's an older gay man, and a very nervous/shy/awkward type, gave me a card today right as he was leaving (like, just sort of ninja-handed it to me). It was in an envelope with my name on it, and on the inside was some cheesy card kind of poem and then 'thank you for making a difference'. I'm super touched, it's definitely super heartwarming. I'm also left feeling a little more awkward than ever though. I always got the sense he was crushing on me, and I actually kind of purposely make myself busy when he's shopping and get my coworker (who is also super sweet to him and likes him a lot) (and happens to be female) to help him. He's known us both for just as long, and really I feel like she's way sweeter to him than I am, but I'm the only one who get's the card! Not that I should be complaining, such a sweet and harmless gesture.

I have a million and one things to do at work right now, but the email server is down, so I can't access anything like phone numbers that were sent to me or ordering info so I'm just kind of stuck doing nothing until it's fixed. Annoying.

I am picking up my first pair of glasses today. Bifocals. I have no idea how I got old.

I was going upstairs carrying a plate of pizza in one hand and a mug of tea in the other and I tripped and fell forward, but I didn't drop the pizza or the tea! I was so amazed and proud of myself. I landed kind of on my stomach on the stairs with the plate of pizza held up in the air in one hand, and managed to plunk the mug down right side up on a step with the other. I'm not sure how I did it, but I remember "Save the food! Save the food!" going through my head as I fell.

nice, RC. those are lovely simply victories.

I have finished both my meetings today and gotten some of my work done...I'd really like to go home but it isn't even 2 yet and I have other stuff to get done. I'm completely checked out...blah.

I need glasses too for the first time in my life. I know there are loads out there who had glasses for a long time before, but it did make me feel old too.

I wanted to die my hair blue but despite leaving the bleach on an hour the red dye didn't all come out. So now it's pink, red and light blonde.

It can be hard to adjust to glasses, but it's also kind of magic. Every time I pick up a new prescription, I'm amazed at all the things I can see.

Way to go, RC. Hope you're ok, though.

It's National Pi Day and I can't make up my mind on what kind of pie to make tonight.

Haha, you poor mustard. I tried to do that once and ended up with blonde roots and (fried) orange hair. Red dye is for life (or at least until you grow it out long enough to cut it all off). Hopefully you can either rock that look or afford to sort it out.

I'm going to my first book group meeting tomorrow. I'm a little nervous - new people I've never met, having to be somewhere at 10am on a Saturday, not knowing what to expect. And we're discussing The Blind Assassin, so these people might have well-thought-out opinions and insights into the material. I should probably check if someone put up reading questions. I also don't have the book (I read it, but I borrowed it from the library and already took it back), so I can't reference it if other people do. I don't think I'm doing this right. I guess I'll see tomorrow.

One of the packages I sent for the fall gift swap got returned to me because it turned out my swap partner had moved. So I sent it again and now the USPS website is telling me it was delivered, but my swap partner hasn't received it. I spent months making the things in that package, and between supplies and shipping and reshipping...over $50. I'm trying not to calculate it in my head because I'll just cry. I love sending people packages and I'm really upset that this happened because it's making me feel like I shouldn't. Plus I know it's not really my fault that it happened...but I can't help but beat myself up for not doing...I don't know what. :(

I love when the cat is sleeping nearby and just randomly starts purring. I imagine he's having a lovely dream, full of sunshine and petting and playmates and delicious food.

Have you ever tried using a color stripper first before bleach?

I am so sorry that happened to you! And you make so many people happy with your lovely packages, don't stop sending all that joy into the Universe.

Also, thank you SO much for the thoughtful surprise package you sent us today! Leela LOVED the box and the cookies and the card was so beautiful and perfect. I laughed so hard when I saw the box and the card - its so YOU!
