Today Feb 10, 2018: New Year, Familiar Waffles

Sat Feb 10, 2018

My lamp and today’s mug should have called each other last night to make sure they weren’t going to wear the same thing today. Target’s 2017 home decor color schemes were on point. Matchy-matchy.

That moment when you’re staring confusedly at the television wondering what kind of weird movie trailer this is and then realize it’s a fragrance commercial.

The only thing that sounded even remotely good for lunch. Eggos and peanut butter.

Last night, about 90 minutes after I fell asleep, I woke up from a nightmare screaming in terror with no sound coming out of my mouth. I had to turn on the lights and the tv until I was ready to go back to sleep. When my alarm went off in the morning I was having a dream that I was in a giant warehouse in front of a speeding newspaper printing press with papers whizzing by. At the end of the press I watched as the pages magically bound themselves into a large, heavy, hardcover dictionary. I was so excited I picked it up, opened it, and stuck my head in to smell the new book smell of the warm pages. It was a wild night in my brain.

Nothing feels better for an exhaustion headache on a really cold day than when your body is bundled up nice and warm in a coat and you walk through a street corridor between two tall buildings and the jet stream of wind freezes your bare head like an ice pack. I mean maybe something feels better but that felt really good today after a long week.

ME EVERY TIME #FiddlerOnTheRoof

Hmm. I’m busy. I should switch this off.

Well. I’ll just watch long enough so I can sing Tradition.

Well. I’ll just watch until I can sing Matchmaker.

Well. I’ll just watch until I can sing If I Were A Rich Man.

I start re-reading this favorite childhood book during every blizzard.


Doing the dishes.

The late night sky has a different hue when there is rain or snow in the air. When the house is dark and I see the sky through the slats in the blinds it’s almost pink. Precipitation Pink.

A wave of nostalgia in the frozen foods section possessed me to buy a bag of tater tots today.

I bought this shirt 4 years ago, having never seen the movie, fully confident I would one day make myself legit. Tonight is that night. I am nothing if not perpetually 35 years late to the party! #ReturnOfTheJedi #MovieMonday

I somehow took 24 photos of my pasta, because I didn’t realize my finger was holding down a button as I held my phone. An hour later Google Photos presented me with a stylized animation of said pasta sitting perfectly still on my plate.

Thank goodness for technology.

Accurate depiction of my face while watching the end of #CloseEncountersOfTheThirdKind for the first time tonight. Riveting! Beautiful score too. #DVRtheater #TCMParty

Finally got to have some vacation day fun this afternoon! Now I need a nap. And pizza. Not necessarily in that order.

A: Two.
Q: How many days was I into my New Year’s goal of doing my extremely simple exercise routine every day before I pulled my hamstring?

And to be honest…I may have technically tweaked it getting out of bed after a nap after exercising.

Week one after the holidays and there still seems to be glitter everywhere. I don’t think I was even involved in anything glitter related this year and it’s still everywhere. Wait. See Jan 01 post…2018 Glitter Glasses. Mystery solved.
