Today's Random Ten
1.) I have decided to write a 50,000 word novel in the month of November, as part of National Novel Writing Month. Incidentally, anyone know when National Get Paid Without Working Month is? I’d like to get started on both endeavors as soon as possible.
2.) The fact that I am on day seven of a seasonal cold proves that I am, indeed, capable of a long-term relationship after all.
3.) Does anyone know where I can find the picket line dedicated to protesting pajama jeans?
4.) I am now referring to all my doctors, specialists, and practitioners as: “All the king’s horses and all the king’s men.” See you on the other side of the wall, Mr. Dumpty.
5.) I am contemplating filling an empty M&M bag with organic pumpkin seeds so I look like a normal emotional eater with a normal trigger food.
6.) On sunny, cool, autumn days like today, I wish I was at home, curled up on my couch, wearing my favorite sweats, wrapped in my favorite blanket, reading my favorite book. I also feel like this every Monday through Friday between the hours of 9am and 5pm.
7.) If there is any experience on Earth as unpleasant as the smell of microwaved fish emanating from the office kitchen in the middle of a workday, I don’t recall ever having experienced it. But that’s probably just because I was knocked out for my root canal and can’t remember my “colic years.”
8.) (Numbers 1-7 above bring me 242 words closer to my 50,000 word novel. In case you’re counting.)
9.) I always think pink is a good color on me until I catch a glimpse of myself actually wearing it.
10.) Sometimes when people talk to me, I just answer “Yeah, uh huh” to everything they say. This is usually a good way to avoid unwanted distractions and conversations. This is also a good way to end up on the office Kitchen Inventory Committee against your will and without your knowledge. I’m in charge of paper towels. I don’t know what that means, either.
