Wimping out with randomness... [Jan. 14th, 2009|01:39 pm]
terribleturnip
All of the topics roaming around in my head are long ones and I'm juggling too many plates right now to devote the time to them they deserve.

So, that's when I turn to my strange post-it note jottings. Strange, because I pull them out days, weeks, months later and think "what?" Admittedly, my internal language is bit more salty, as we've seen when my internal editor goes walkabout. (Stopped myself yesterday...just BARELY...from a "So, who do I have to blow to get invited to the hockey game". Not that I was interested in going to the hockey game, but my head, ever in pursuit "leaving 'em speechless" high, really wanted to see how long it would take my boss to recover.

Anyway, half the time I can't read what I wrote, or can't understand what my damn point was. ,lj-cut text="So I'm left with this:">

Found myself watching a police officer in a store, thinking "how can he move around and do his job with all of that stuff hanging of his belt?". Until I realized that for near half the weekends of the year, I spend all day with two-three pouches, gloves, handkerchiefs, a tankard, and alternatively a belaying pin or dog leashes hanging about my waist. Oh, and my boobs jacked up to under my chin. Maybe not as hard to deal with it as I thought. Although, I'm hoping your average police officer is better at getting in and out of a car, without getting something caught on something, causing a near faceplant on the pavement, or that spectacular "jerk back into the car" as if the monster in the back seat decided I wasn't getting out after all.

The amount of time it will take me to learn that the road is all torn up on my way out of work, covered in dirt, broken concrete and construction equipment and really, it would be a lot shorter to take the long way around: one day before completion of the project.

The advantage to having a wimpy temperature sensitive greyhound: he doesn't want to be outside walking, either.

Chocolate and Hazelnuts are like kryptonite to me. I celebrated my four pound weight loss this past week by succumbing to the siren call of a Ritter milk chocolate and hazelnut bar. Idiot.

That's the problem I have with diets. I've found it far more reasonable to change my eating habits, but rather than cut things out just eat certain things in limited amounts. Diets always made me crave things. I do a lot less craving these days (minus the whole pregnancy thing).

That said, a 4 pound weight loss is fabu! I applaud your hard work, and may the calories consumed by the Ritter chocolate/hazelnut bar go to someone else (not either of us!)foo

I second that (as I eat really bad for me watergate salad for lunch).

I've just changed my habits- more veg, less carbs, no soda, and decent portions. I still eat my ferrer roche chocolates.

Oh, don't worry, I don't forbid myself anything --- that's a sure road to defeat. BUT, a chocolate bar in the middle of the day, not even at approved snack time...on top of a very filling/fulfilling lunch. In other words, a candy bar eaten not because I was even hungry...just because it was there.

That's not good. I didn't even enjoy it really, because afterwards I was TOO full. I hate that feeling.

My mouth is all Id.

"My mouth is all Id"

Best quote ever.

I have to agree. In the history of...everything, there has never been a self-aware statement of awesomeness.

"My mouth is all Id."

See, now I'll be "there" for the rest of the day...

Don't be too tough on yourself. Nobody can resist the RitterSport.

I originally mis-typed 'too touch on yourself'. Now I'll be there for the rest of the day.

Damn. You reminded me that the second half was sitting in my desk drawer. Between you and Diego, now not only am I having bad thoughts...I'm eating chocolate while doing them.

You live a full life. This humorous passage is proof.
