I am in denial that it's Friday. I know, WHAT?!?!!|
But you're thinking "thank whateverdiety it's Friday, the weekend's almost here!"
And I'm thinking, "Expletivedeleted! Another week behind."
Except of course, I had no idea today was Friday. Which would explain why everyone else in the office is wearing jeans and I'm not. Which would explain why I'm exhausted -- Fridays I let myself sleep in an extra hour and don't come into work until 8, which is our usual work time, but I usually get at 7, just to try and keep up. And last night I looked at the alarm clock, sighed and said "Friday you can sleep until 6". So, up at 5, because in MY head it was still Thursday today.
You know how you find $20 in your pocket and you think "Whee, free money!" Even though, of course, it was your money all along and at most, you should be relieved to find money that you lost. But because, basically, we're mostly ignorant monkeys in there, you brain gets excited and starts plotting what it can spend this money on.
I have the opposite of that. I'm mourning a day I never really had, but my ignorant capuchin-brain thinks it's lost.
And then later, my bonobo-impulse control will decide that having a high calorie-high fat lunch will be the way to make me feel better.
Which, of course, won't work, I'll just feel fat and disappointed in myself and feel the orangutan-urge to pull an old burlap sack over my head here at my desk and wallow in self-pity and finger-nail picking.
So, in an effort to appeal to my macaque-attention span, I found this to make me happy. http://niemann.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/03/10/my-way/
I especially like the chocolate fudge highway.
(And before you even THINK about lecturing me on the difference between monkeys and apes...don't go there. For starters, I know the difference, but there's such a thing as poetic license. For seconders, remember what monkeys fling.)
