I'll just drown my sorrows in Lemonheads.

Tuesday, February 01, 2011


I am sleep-deprived. I am lucky. I am just this week realizing that Arnold Schwartzneggar isn't California's governor anymore. I am learning about eczema. I want a banana royale. I wish I still ate bacon. I am gassy. I worry that I'm not prepared for The Big One. I should be working. I should be taking care of the new baby. I should eat more fiber. I shouldn't have eaten that whole bag of chips yesterday. I joined Facebook and found out I still want friends. I came back to work, and they'd changed everything. I went back to ballet and found my body. I came back to my blog and was amazed that I couldn't remember writing most of it. I came back to my blog.

There oughta be a word...

...for nieces and nephews collectively. Mothers and fathers = parents. Brothers and sisters = siblings. Grandma and Grandpa = grandparents. Come to think of it, aunts and uncles need a word, too. Why the rest of the collective extended family is cheated out of brevity and ease, I don't know. Other languages probably have such words, but I took Latin in high school and it doesn't get me too far now that I've taken my fair share of SATs.

Let's think of a word and start using it in everyday conversation, k?

Teas' Tea Review: Rose Green flavor

"Get some green tea at lunch today," my headache-y brain says.
"The caffeine will help," it says.
"Ooh, get the one with rose petals. That will be nice," it says.

So I did, and now my noontime beverage tastes like licking an old lady's neck, but it's less in my mouth and more in my nose. Licking an old lady's neck with my nose.

Not recommended.

in which I record the hilarious musings of a 2-year-old

"I had a bright light all over my body and I was color and they colored me in."

"I have a machine that I pinch with."

An explanation, please

1. for why my pillow smells like cat butt

2. why, if they're supposed to be so damn afraid, possums always stare me down like they're ready to kick my sorry human ass

3. how it can be that it's already 10:30pm and I haven't gotten anything actually done today
