Deep Thoughts

23 Feb

I’m completely exhausted, probably a combo of too many carbs and looking at databases all day (yeah, I had to do that again. yay!), and the fact that I’ve had on this stupid BP monitoring cuff on me all day. It’s hella-annoying, and it’s the second time I’ve had to do this in the last two months because the first time the machine went all wonky and the readings weren’t accurate. So yay! I have the pleasure of having to keep my left arm still every half hour while a gizmo makes vibrator-type-noises and cuts off my circulation. Fun times!

So I’m keeping up with my post a day, but this is going to most likely be incoherent, silly, and a little strange. Trysts into my effed-up mind usually are.

So – here is a list of random thoughts going through my head lately:

  1. Why is it that even though I have been eating relatively healthy over the past couple of months, I still find myself wanting a doughnut, like, once a day? I mean, I love doughnuts, and I admit they’re hard to get a hold of here – but I think I’m going a bit overboard. Confession – I did manage to locate and buy a chocolate and sprinkle covered doughnut today. Hopefully that should keep me covered for a while. Mmmm…. Doughnuts. 
  2. I don’t know why, but each time I see a reality show with “the next great” whatever in the title I feel compelled to watch it. This month it’s been “The next great baker” and “Oprah’s search for the next great pimp of kohl’s products”. Wait. That title can’t be right… I honestly believe that if they made a reality show titled “The next great water boiler” I would watch and root for the guy who makes the mistake of sitting and watching the pot. Ok, now I’m really not making any sense.
  3. I love cooking with garlic, but I hate the way it makes my hands smell. I feel like it takes days to wash off. This is a problem because we go through about 3 heads of garlic a week with my recipes, and I don’t like being smelly. Though it is useful for keeping imaginary vampires at bay.
  4. I watch a lot of TV – mostly in the background while I’m doing other stuff (one of the pluses of working from home). I still don’t understand, however, despite my ample tv watching options, why I continue to put myself through the torture that is S&i! My Dad Says. I just heard they’re probably renewing it for another season. Why oh why CBS? And worse – why oh why me?
  5. My nephew started singing “Baby Baby Ohh” or whatever that Justin Bieber song is over the weekend. He’s six and he doesn’t speak a lick of English. Then today I find a headline on an Israeli news site about JB’s new haircut. Yes, a HEADLINE. About a teeny-bopper’s haircut. I believe this officially means that Bieber Fever has gone global. Now, if someone can please explain to me why that is, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.
  6. It’s a crappy cell phone pic, but due to popular demand, here is the giant earring I recently blogged about: 
  7. It’s huge, it’s fabulous, it’s gaudy, there aren’t two of them (as in the other ear is usually adorned by a simple, silver flower or butterfly stud), and I love it. I am apparently obsessed with huge epic jewelry. In case you’re curious, it’s a clip on, because putting that thing in a hole would most likely tear my ear off, and it reaches past my shoulder.
  8. We have been living in our new/old apartment for almost four months now. There are still 4 boxes which have not been unpacked, and I don’t think we’ve done even one decent clean up of the place. I know it’s terrible. I think it’s because we know we’ll be moving out soon (though we haven’t started looking for a new place yet). But still, Shmerson and I need to do a clean-a-thon, stat.
  9. I went to see the Harley Hottie yesterday and I mentioned my blog in passing. At the end of the needle-sticking session he asked me for the address, because apparently he likes blogs. I gave it to him, and had no choice but to admit the nickname I came up with for him. He blushed, it was cute. Since I gave him the blog address I’ve noticed an unusually high amount of hits on that post. Methinks HH is showing off. :-). Even if he isn’t, it would be very adorable if he was. (HH, if you’re reading this, when I see you on wed. let’s pretend this post never happened, k? Ok.)
  10. Pause for temporary loss of circulation in my left arm… and… we’re back!
  11. I think I’m done. But you know what sucks? I was totally planning on going to bed right after posting this, and now my tired has gone away. I hate when that happens. I think I’ll attempt to sleep anyway by popping an ep of law and order on the computer. It usually does the trick. Let’s just hope that my circulation getting cut off every half an hour will not impede my beauty sleep.
  12. I didn’t manage to get a wink of sleep the last time I had this gizmo attached to my arm, so wish me luck!
  13. What’s my deal with numbering everything? I am anything but organized (except when it comes to weddings), and yet I am constantly compelled to make lists on this blog. Isn’t that weird? (It’s like we’re looking at Wayne’s basement, only that’s not Waynes basement!)
  14. Courtney, those last parentheses were a welcome back gift especially for you.
  15. I really am just about done now.
  16. No, really I am.
  17. I just like to keep on numbering stuff.
  18. So I’ll go until 20, because that seems nice and round.
  19. Why is it that when I wrote “nice and round” I immediately thought that it sounded dirty?
  20. Ok – that last one is proof that I need to get my gizmoed-up ass to bed.
  21. Good night!
  22. Ok – 22 then. That’ll do.

    I feel the need to film myself watching the pot and waiting for a boil.

      Hahahahahaha. I love that comment.

      What’s S&i? Sixteen and idiotic?

        shit my dad says. stupid cbs sitcom about stupid william shatner being stupid. It’s worse that 16 and pregnant, because at least with the latter there is some added value. This is just a mind numbing, badly written waste of tv air time.

    Hehehehe. That’s the best welcome back gift ever. I’m not worthy.

    • mommyodyssey February 23, 2011 at 12:02 #

      You’re worthy! You’re worthy! Why don’t you stick around and hang out with us?

    I had something I was going to say about the doughnut craving, but by the time I got to the end of your post I was giggling so hard I forgot what I was going to say. LOL…

    I feel that same about the doughnuts, garlic and Bieber! Apparently he is a huge brat. ICLW

    I love that you shared this with Harley Hottie and now he’s showing his friends! That’s so cute!

    Picture WITH the earring on please.

    Donuts are ubiquitous. One will always crave them.

    I went through the entire mmm video as a beginning to my work day and I’m happy now. I will say two things: 1. 6 & 7 are actually the same, so you actually went up to 21, which is a more symbolic number than 22 thinks I; 2. Would you believe that the ONE thing that will make my oh-so-thin-the-word-svelte-makes-him-look-fat husband cross the street to buy is a Dunkin Donuts? I usually go for the adjacent Baskin Robbins and get a small (as if you can call that 500 calorie monster small) cone of ice cream. Especially if it’s cold outside. Cause that’s how I roll.
