This Friday is weird. Four-day work weeks make me think Friday is Fhursday. I thank all things holy that it’s not. I’z not helped this week by also having an extra choir rehearsal thereby making me think a week has gone by since the last one, but not so!
These struggles will not keep me from loving four-day work weeks or extra choir rehearsals, however. I’ll gladly suffer Day Disorientation for both.
Knowing it’s the day that it is, let’s begin FRIDAY FHOUGHTS, FOLUME NINE!
If for some reason I forget what day it is, I’ll just be glad it’s not Wednesday evening anymore. After work, I planned on just driving home, but I almost had to swim. Would thou hast better luck staying in place — and building an ark — before heading out? I doth think so. The torrential downpours to end all downpours happened. Wires and trees came down. Drivers went full-on Complete Idiot. Roads flooded creating hazardous conditions, especially when big trucks passed and splashed me with The Perfect Storm-sizes ‘waves.’ The entire way I contemplated pulling over and waiting it out, but I wasn’t that far from home. That’s what every idiot who gets rescued from a flash flood thinks, you moron. You better hope you don’t become footage on the evening news. Alas, I went the way that I knew was not downstream and all worked out well. My shoes got soaked, though, walking extremely short distances to/from my car. They’re dry today, but now my feet squeak.
I was certain Tuesday was Tuesday because it was the day after my long weekend and I was sad. Over said weekend, I finished the entire second season of HBO’s Barry (Ah.Maz.Ing). Mostly, I did nothing and it was fun!
Also fun, trying to grow things. Every time I see Ivy (see photo), I tell her to GROW! I think it’s working.
Also also fun, grocery shopping! I stopped after choir rehearsal meaning that twas late and almost no one was in the store. I sing! I cart dance! AND! I bargain shop, especially since ALL THE SNACKS were on sale! I’m good for, like, years. My current snack faves: Mini Nilla Wafers with fresh strawberries and Cracker Barrel string cheese
— White Cheddar — with Sociables crackers and grapes. Delish!
… … … …
Stopped to enjoy a mini can of Pringles. Sorry I didn’t share — just enough for one! And indeed, once I popped, I couldn’t stop!
I also can’t stop singing. We haz a show coming up soon and I’m preparing by singing NON-STOP. (Of course, if you knew me IRL, you’d say, “That’s not new(s). You’re ALWAYS singing.” True! Speaking of choir/singing, here’s a recent find, a choir 1,999 voices strong in Toronto (pronounced To-RON-no) singing a work by that purple wonder, Prince.
May your feet never get wet in a rainstorm. May you always know what day it is. May the snacks and songs always be plentiful. And may we get to a day when we never have to hear doves cry.
Happy, peaceful weekend, people.
On Fridays, I have fhoughts. And that’s how Friday Fhoughts was born. A cross between two series I used to have (Random Thoughts Thursday and DSF Weekly Rewind), Friday Fhoughts is a smattering of random thoughts, connected in some way or not, with photos, music, and more. Read my Friday Fhoughts posts here.
