DISCERNING MINDS WANNA KNOW

Man, I wish Livejournal had run their special on permanent accounts a month ago!! :( poo. Saving for summer vacation and puppies must take priority, however.

I'm very boring today. Work has eaten every brain cell I had left, and chewed them up and spit them out.

Grey pulpy brain cells lying wadded up in the bottom of my mental spittoon.

HAHAHAHA!!

EW.

(hee!)

You would laugh if you could have seen me just now. I wrote that, then I sat here and snorted giggles through my nose until my eyes watered. Then I had to put my head down on the desk because the giggle-shaking was making me fall over.

I'm happy about something good that happened to a friend today. I'm disgusted with the weather. I'm tired and hoping that the Coke machine at work is fixed tomorrow because I cannot get through another work day with NO CAFFEINE.

I am reading a really good book. I couldn't put it down last night after I started it when I went to bed. I read until midnight, at which point my eyes were so blurring and burning with fatigue that I could barely see. Did I put the book down? No. I got up to go to the bathroom, and when I came back to bed, I PUT MY GLASSES ON AND CONTINUED READING. No wonder I'm so tired today. But, as soon as I get done with this, and with putting the kids to bed...

*pauses to yell "TEN MINUTES TO BEDTIME!!*

...I will carry on reading. Summer of Glorious Madness by Christy Yorke. I'm really glad to be reading a good book, because the last book I started was a thick collaboration which had too many characters who never made me care about them, too many storylines with no apparent point, no forward-movement of anything resembling a plot and I, who cannot remember ever having given up on a book so quickly, except with Dune, which I did finally try again and read through, and which turned out to be worth it, got about 1/5th of the way into it and then gave it up as a bad job, placing it disappointedly on the donation pile, because while I might have had the energy and the forgiving spirit to try again with Dune all those years ago, frankly, I just don't feel I have the time to waste anymore on crappy books when there are so many good ones out there waiting for me and TIME IS A WASTIN'!

Happy Hoppy Beautiful Flower-filled Birthday Wishes to gentle_dream!
