Mid-Week Mind Wander #3

My mind is full of haziness due to the fabulous pain killers the doctor gave me after my car accident on Monday. My mind is wandering to all kinds of far off places. One such wandering consisted of Harx, a 4-year old boy named Conner (not my nephew), Conner's summer-time cold, and his pediatrician. Don't ask...I have no idea. It was very strange indeed. That's the latest drug-induced dream that is the result of the dude that ran the redlight, evidenced below. It may be time to trade. Seriously, the DART is looking better and better. It's dangerous business driving around in this city. Crazy bastards.

Mid-Week Mind Wander #2.5

What do you think of dudes that wear pink shirts? Douche or daring?

Mid-Week Mind Wander #2

Evidently, there's a bible study group of co-workers that meets in an empty office across from mine every Wednesday at noon. They must've been kicked out of their previous meeting place, because this is a new phenomenon. They call some chick and put her on speakerphone and they all pray and chant, etc. Hell, they may perform ritual sacrifices for all I know.

What's interesting is the people that go into this room. I never would have thought some of them would take a whole hour from their day to study the bible with co-workers. And, it's almost like they're sneaking in. It's bizarre. I know half these people were drunk at last year's holiday party and the other half are notorious gossips. It's like they're saying, "I'm a Christian, but I'm not a nut about it!"

So, I'm wondering...

Let's say I'm a Bahá'í and I want to meditate and pray, as is the Bahá'ís form of worship, at the office during lunch. How would that be perceived?

Mexico Memorexed

I do enjoy memorexing the significant (and not-so-significant) moments of my life. Having just returned from Mexico where my obsession came in handy, I thought a slideshow blog of our vacation would be more entertaining than me writing about it. Prepare yourself for more shared memories on this blog in the future. It may be a new theme.

Pre-Vacation Mishaps

Mishap #1:
On Monday I got a spa pedicure. Yum. My feet were so happy and bright. I don't normally wear bright polish, it's usually a very dark red or black. But, I was feeling particularly cheerful when I went in to get my pedicure. When I got home with my jolly new pedicured feet, we took the tags off the new luggage. I dropped one of the parcels on my foot and totally smudge the big toe. I'm talking major gash in the polish. I became a little unhinged and needed to be talked back from the ledge. I know the ladies will understand. Fortunately, by some stroke of bizarre luck, I just happen to have the exact color polish in my collection. Someone said, "I told you so," under his breath...

Mishap #2:
This morning, I dropped my relatively new, Physician's Formula blush color palette on the bathroom floor. A hair got caught in the lid, and as I was gingerly trying to pull it out...BAM! I saw some pieces on the floor and thought it wasn't a total loss, just a few cracks maybe. Hopefully. I didn't see the compact, it was hiding behind the door. I shut the door and there it was. Lying there pitifully on the floor with a thousand tiny, powdery blocks of color surrounding it. I stared at it, sighed, and walked off to get the broom and dust pan. PF rocks my face off, but I basically just shredded $15 by dropping it. Lame. Since we're leaving at 4am to catch our flight, it looks like I'll be going to CVS down the block to pick up some more at lunch. Unfortunately, I'm downtown and the price for anything downtown is premium. My vehicle is at my place for the duration of our vacation, so there is no escape.

Tonight, we will have a couple of rum drinks on the patio to relax. Let's try not to spill it, eh?

P.S. I managed to get all my vacation gear into ONE suitcase and am only taking 6 pairs of shoes. Thank you, thank you.
