I feel all discombobulated because I totally spaced out and missed a doctor's appointment. I really hope they don't charge me the no-show fee, too. I mean, it's within their right to do so, but ugh! Frustration! The good thing is that I was so spaced out because I was putting the finishing touches on Wilson's waiver petition, and it's basically ready to send!

I'm duty principal at work this evening and its my responsibility to close up if snow is bad. It's really not that bad but like a million people have asked me whether I'm going to close. I keep telling people that if they have students who are worried about getting home to let them go. Its really nowhere near bad enough, but I'd still love to close, just for the power!

There is a jar of smoky soycurls in my backpack and I'm at school and I feel like Pigpen except I'm not surrounded by dirt, I'm surrounded by bonfire smell.

I had a cardiac event monitor for the first week of December. Today I got a letter from my doctor's surgery asking me to make an appointment to discuss the results. This probably means that something unusual showed up on the results. I'm not overly concerned but am hoping that whatever might be wrong won't necessitate any significant lifestyle changes.

Somebody posted something stupid on FB, and I can't get my thoughts together to make a snarky response. It's SO RIDICULOUS though. I'm sure it's going around the internets. It's a bunch of 'facts' about gun control leading to dictators killing people. Great. You forking jerkwad. What I want to say is that it's funny how you can use 'facts' to make all sorts of wild accusations and assumptions, but I want it to sound smarter. Also, does Switzerland really give everyone a gun?

ETA: OK, I looked up the Switzerland thing.

Will be thinking aboutyou, 8ball!! Wishing for the best!

Okay. I'm eating lunch at the cafe where my BFF works and where I get free food. Also where I forkin love their food, so fresh and delicious. I was munchin on my sandwich though and saw on my plate a live bug, like, a small hairless yellow caterpillar lookin thing. Like a 'grub' you'd see them eat in the lion king. I calmly put it in my napkin and tossed it in the compost but now I'm having trouble with the idea of eating my delicious sandwich. I should get over it, I probably eat bugs accidentally all the time, and it's pretty likely it was the only one. Shivers.

Hopefully your appointment will be like mine in the same situation. "The episodes on the tape matched the times you marked on the tracker, but there doesn't seem to be an actual problem and there's nothing we or you can do about it."

It's so cold. I met Mike for dinner, and I was sitting inside, kinda near a door but it was an internal door (though leading out to the train station), and there was a heater above me, and I was wearing a hoodie, a scarf, a coat, and gloves.

Hope it all goes ok 8ball xxx

Picking up the new car tomorrow evening! I can't wait to be in a safe car again. I sat down and read the report for my current one this morning and since then I feel really edgy about driving it at all. To top it off one of the indicator bulbs isn't working today.

Hehe for sure. Didn't look like a maggot luckily, really more like a tiny caterpillar or fat silkworm. I mean, gross either way I guess but I inspected the sandwich carefully after, no bugs. He probably just clawed on really tight when they rinsed the greens.

i get bugs on the greens pretty often, i figure it's proof of organic practices in action....


8ball, i was wondering how you made out with your monitoring. When I did mine, I was also called in for the results (because nobody gives anything over the phone), which were also inconclusive, just like rachell's, and the doctor tried to convince me to do a stress test, at which point I decided I had had enough of this silliness.

I'm probably moving to Oregon this fall for school, and I currently live in Indiana. This whole coordinating a move across the country thing is a little overwhelming at times. It's just so...far.

Last night sucked- I woke up every two hours. I swear to god I heard someone playing dissonant chords on my organ at one point. I should've just sucked it up and gone to my boyfriend's!

However, I finally got put in my online history of jazz class and I am so excited for it. Except I'm already a week behind and asking for the first exam to be rescheduled for me (work trip).

Slowly but surely all will be good!

My back is sore from picking up a fat terrier today. Usually I just bend over and pick up small dogs, whereas I do the squat and straight back lift for bigger dogs. Fat dogs in little frames are sneaky! I need to stretch.

I am horrible mother. I am dreading doing a family fitness night at the middle school. I don't like the noise, the crowds. I really don't like a number of the parents (I have been treated pretty terribly by a couple of them who forgot that at 40 something we are not in high school anymore). So I take my kindle and hide in a corner.

I picked up new kitty litter! I had initially just grabbed a small amount because I wasn't sure what would be acceptable, and that ran out, so I decided to pick up more. I got an enormous bag and carried it home in my arms on foot and now my arms feel like rubber! It was only 33 pounds. I need to lift work out more often.

Also, the kitty peed outside of his box. I've heard this can be a warning sign of health issues, but on the other hand it seems more likely that it's the stress of the move.. I'll keep an eye on it to make sure he doesn't do it again.

Hey, I'm sure this wasn't what you meant by your statement, but many of the people who are most severely impacted by the quinoa situation are native Peruvians -- also known as Incas. Whatever their ancestors may have been up to a thousand years ago, that's not what they're doing today, and as problematic as it is to blame vegans for this situation, it seems to me even more problematic to point a finger at the thousand-years-dead ancestors of the same people whose families and livelihoods are threatened by this situation right now.

Get this for your kitty! My mom got me one, and just the like kitty on the front of the box, mine seem totally stoned and have stopped stress peeing. It's a miracle.

ETA: My internet is so slow right now that your photo loaded like old school porn pics, one millimeter at a time. For a second, I was like, 'is this worth it?' and then I saw kitty belly fur and said, 'yes, it is.'


Thanks to me, my entire building smells like curry. You're welcome, building.

There is no led zep on spotify and i'm too lazy to go upstairs and get my hard drive, so I'm listening to some cover band do an album of their songs. It's fairly horrendous.
