If these things keep up, I ought to rename my blog Stupid Tales of the Subway Rails, or something. This was my position for much of my commute home:
That would be my finger essentially holding my ear shut. This is because the man next to me was sleeping, which would be fine, except that he was snoring. This might be fine too, but we’re not talking little snorts… we’re talking major snuffling, as in, it was audible over the screech of the wheels on the tracks. That? Is damn loud! Sometimes I’m okay with being around noise, but I’m never okay with being around sounds like snoring: it’s rhythmic without a pattern — you know the next one is coming, but you don’t know when, and you’re sitting on edge just waiting for it.
This post is totally going to be out of chronological order. Because I am cool like that.
Once upon a time, we had a clock hanging on the wall in the office. This clock had a mind of its own, and it was always speeding up and slowing down. It eventually ended up in the trash, and somehow the second hand is still sitting on my desk, but that’s really irrelevant, I just found it kind of odd! We’re all surrounded by time-telling devices anyway: the phones have clocks, the computers have clocks, we all wear watches… but Mr. J decided it was essential that we have a wall clock, so guess who got to go buy one? … I humored him and got the biggest one I could find. That was last week, I think. Today I finally got batteries.
I also told him that I think we ought to paint the walls blue, as it is supposed to be a soothing color. Oddly enough, he didn’t seem too keen on taking my decorating advice. Imagine that.
Since I’m talking about Mr. J anyway, you see this salad here? It was a lovely concoction consisting of romaine, baby bellas, microwaved zucchini, roasted delicata squash, and Lightlife Tempeh Strips.
However, my enjoyment of said salad was severely hampered by Mr. J’s feeling the need to satisfy an urge to stand and gawp at me for a good thirty seconds during its consumption. Seriously. This is crossing over from the realm of annoying and into that of just plain creepy. Go away!!
Just another little office tidbit! I arrive first every day; I think I’ve mentioned that. Anyway, that fact means that this was on my co-worker’s desk over the weekend.
This, however, was far from ew:
Vanilla yogurt, crumbled apple cinnamon mini muffin, and cinnamon. Lots and lots of cinnamon. Because cinnamon makes the world a better place.
I encountered the same problem today that I did last week… that of not knowing what I want, which is only helped along by my indecisiveness! In such cases, I’m tempted to just take the easy way out and revert to frozen meals again, but … no. Just, no. Since I bought a box of bulgur today with a coupon that expires on December 31, I decided to work on finishing my nearly-empty old box.
Bulgur with peas, corn, and red bell pepper… and a “chicken” patty. This whole protein thing gets annoying sometimes — just give me my carbs and leave me alone! Oh, yeah, and I probably don’t even have to mention the involvement of garlic salt here. Either way — it was good, and I didn’t stop after eating it and think I wish I had had [something else] instead, so all’s well on that front.
Unfortunately, all is not well on some other fronts. Namely, I have a toothache. It’s especially odd because before I had my wisdom tooth extraction, it felt exactly like this; and the dentist essentially said that I could either take antibiotics every time an infection cropped up and then possibly eventually need to pull the tooth anyway, or I could just pull it right away. I opted for the latter. So I’d like to know why it’s bothering me now!
I hate dentists. And I don’t have dental insurance. But guess who I’ll be calling tomorrow?
I was strangely not exhausted today, considering the hour at which I finally fell asleep last night. This was a pleasant surprise, until I remembered that I tend to operate on a 24-hour time lag when it comes to such things. That means I’m going to be a zombie tomorrow. (Which, by the way, is supposed to be absolutely frigid. Ahhhhhhhh!!!) An early night sounds like a good idea.
And that draws another exciting day in the life of me to a close. :p
Have a wonderful Tuesday!
