As an INFJ, I spend a lot of time gathering information and intel (consciously and sub so), and also analyzing/questioning/pondering, etc. I do a lot of this silently so most people wouldn’t notice my brain is constantly playing 20 questions / 1,000,000 answers. Sometimes, though, my brain gives me a break and I only think, like, half as much as usual and contemplate silly things that make me laugh. Lucky you, today is that day.

Daisy Digest: October

Daisy Digest LogoHalf summer, half Autumn (kind of), October was weird weather-wise. Otherwise, other than working, I partied like an old person (read: I sat on the couch the entire time) at a three-year-old’s birthday party. I tried to notice little things that make me happy as the days flew by. I tried to take breaks from the (bad) news.

Rev, rest, recoup, repeat.

The 31 days flew by, though (just me?).

RTT: Waiting for the W-E-E-K-E-N-D

They’re Random! They’re Thoughts! It’s Thursday!

This week: Waiting for the W-E-E-K-E-N-D

  • I didn’t post on Tuesday because of the Memorial Day holiday Monday.
  • I needed a holiday from the holiday.
  • People were driving like lunatics Tuesday, hardly anybody answered email or phone calls (until Wednesday), and every day this week, I found myself surprised when I looked at the clock to see what time it was.
  • Short weeks are the longest weeks ever.
  • Tonight, though, I get a reward: it’s the Scripps National Spelling Bee!
  • NERD ALERT! This Word Nerd, who took Latin in high school, gets her spelling groove on, every year.
  • It’s like the Spelling Olympics.
  • Not to be confused with the Tori Spelling Olympics, which feature endless babymaking whilst scrapbooking, crying and talking at the same time (without a word being understood), and various plastic surgeries.
  • Does anybody scrapbook anymore?
  • Isn’t Facebook like an online scrapbook?
  • Millions of millennials will never know the joys of trying to get Glue Stick off their fingers.
  • Somebody should make a scrapbook page about that.
  • Maybe I should get crafty to help this seemingly unending week to finally reach its denouement.
  • Denouement: Noun. Language of origin: French. Fancy-pants-ness level: high.
  • Denouement: A word I’m sure those kid spellers can rattle off without blinking twice.
  • If you’ll excuse me, I have to go study the Dictionary some more so I can compete with the middle schoolers in the Spelling Bee final tonight (8 p.m. on ESPN. I. Can’t. Wait!).
