No need for me to really insert any lamentations of my own, as I will shortly be listening to an entire Book of Lamentations… due to the fact that the fast day to which I referred three weeks ago is tonight / tomorrow. And guess who is being sacrilegious and not fasting?! (Yes, I know the whole “health comes first” thing… but really, I’m not about to drop dead here. My sister-in-law is seven months pregnant and she is fasting!) I am also going to work … which should not be the case, considering I do work for a Jewish institution, but whatever, “they’re cheap,” to quote J. Who is not coming to work. Not that you’ll catch me complaining about that particular detail!
Some pictures, some verbal vomit, and then I get to run off to lament…
i was trying for this! (slightly less creepy)
banana chocolate blastocrisp jamfrakas bar... best flavor, possibly
desktop of my computer at work... *sniff*
met my friend for a salad... romaine, sprouts, water chestnuts, kidney beans, balsamic... they didn't have croutons grrr
sleeping beauty... an adorable little jazz apple
i fell back into the freezer
i'm sure you can identify this by now :p
made milkshakes for my parents and two of my brothers... chocolate, vanilla, strawberry
operation beautiful note!
I stuck this on the mirror in one of the bathrooms at work yesterday… it was gone this morning. Boo if one of the jerk janitors tossed it; yay if some woman took it because it made her happy!
I didn’t get to blog last night (yes, that’s why you felt a deep void in your life ;p) because I spent three hours sitting in my doctor’s office… I didn’t even need to see the doctor, I just wanted the tubes so I could get my blood drawn!! I was about ready to cry with frustration… it is SO rude and disrespectful of care practitioners to disregard their clients’ time that way. When he finally showed up and asked how I was, I said, “Very frustrated.” He said, “We all are.” Um. It’s your fault!! (This isn’t an aberration of the norm; his office always operates this way. Maybe this is why I haven’t been to the doctor in three years!) I told him that if I have high blood pressure, it can be attributed to the aggravation inflicted upon me in his waiting room. Between the stupid blaring DVD and the radio jabbering on and on in the examination room (where I waited for an hour), I was being assaulted with way too much sensory stimuli. Me = not happy. So now I have the tubes, but I need to have them drawn after four fasting hours, which can get tricky. We shall see.
I think I may have sort of figured out my vacation. Not saying anything yet — but I hope it finally straightens out! I just have to decide whether to stay an extra day than I was originally planning to. I’m already spending more than I wanted to, but I’m deluding myself into thinking that it’s a birthday present to myself. (Awfully generous of me… ha.) Wish me luck… or whatever.
Haha — okay, this is TOO ironic. I just took a shower, so I’m sitting here and marvelling over the fact that this body wash really DOES make skin look radiant … my skin seem to have a sparkling sheen to it, which is really rather cool. And I went to find a link to show you all which body wash I meant, and as you can see… it’s been discontinued. Sometimes something is so patently UNfunny that you just have to laugh. I really am going to post a list of things that have been discontinued on me. One day.
Off I go… some ashes and lamentations are calling my name.
Have a lovely Thursday!
