Petty much?

If my brain exploded today and the resulting matter ended up in writing it would look like this:

* Personal encouragement comes in the strangest form. Like my morning marketing meeting. Craziness.

* It really bugs me when people put the vacuum cleaner away with the cord just draped haphazardly around the handle. Does it really take that much longer to coil the cord properly?

* There’s this little thing called a signature at the bottom of e-mails. Where the sender puts their name so the recipient know who the letter is from. I like to use this function — often with, “Best, Kristin.” I like making myself known. Understand my confusion, then, when people respond to letters I send them with, “Dear, Kristen,” or “Dear Christen.” Baffling. Truly.

* Mmmmm. Pancakes. Pancakes sound amazing. With strawberries and whipped cream. And turkey sausage and coffee. It’s like an orgasmic fantasy for my stomach.

* My job is SO much more fun when I actually get to have conversations with people. And they actually make appointments with me. Yeah, that rocks.

* The lady at the BMV totally blew the pattern of State of Ohio employees being mean and crabby. Renewing my license was actually a non-painful experience today. 🙂

* I hate when I think people don’t like me. Like today. Arg.

* I get frustrated with people’s egos. Including my own. They just get in the way and cause stress.

* 7 a.m. — I’m hungry. 9:30 a.m. — Those bagel bites were good, but I’m still hungry. Maybe I’ll just have more coffee. Noon — Huuuuungry. But also feeling fat. Even though I’ve only had coffee and some bagel bites all day. Sigh. 3 p.m. — Soup? Dad’s bringing me soup. OK! 6 p.m. — I want chocolate chip cookies. But sure I’ll settle for coffee. 8 p.m. — Hungry again. 9 p.m. — OK, I’ll break down and make some veggies and chicken. 10:30 p.m. — I think I’m going to bed so I stop thinking about being hungry. Be good. No emotional eating. Don’t do it. Go to bed. Be good. SIGH.

* The sun, coupled with less-than-frigid temperatures, made me hopeful that spring may actually exist in the near future. Hapiness.

* Last night’s “The Office” made me double over laughing. I watched it online — a much-needed start to the week. 🙂 Because according to Michael Scott, “Offices are places where dreams come true.”


  1. I loved the Office too. Best one ever, in my ever so humble opinion!
