The Chill Is Gone

It’s a monumental moment. After four days of feeling so ill I couldn’t do anything, I am sitting! In a chair! I ate food today! And I’m able to type this post. Am I well? Not completely, no. But am I better? The lack of hacking cough says yes (still coughing, just not nearly as much). Fear not, dear reader. In addition to this post being gluten free — as all posts here at Daisy Smiley Face are, this post is certified germ-free. Continue reading “The Chill Is Gone”

Random Thoughts Thursday: Mermaids, Motivation, and Maladies

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

This week: Mermaids, Motivation, and Maladies

* I bought an iced tea at Starbucks and thought someone had sprayed whipped cream nearby and it splattered on my cup.

* It’s snow around the mermaid thingy… discovered after I tried to wipe it off.

* I saw some cold cups online that have snowflakes. If mine did, I wouldn’t have tried to wipe them off.

* It looks a little like foam that stuck to the glass above as I drank my delicious tea down to the very last drop. See?

Starbucks Iced Tea Cup

* Why don’t they just put a Santa hat on the mermaid?

* (Ignoring ridiculous red cup controversy.)

* If you ever need motivation to work out or at the very least catch up on your eyebrow plucking, accidentally turn on your laptop camera. I’ve seen myself in funhouse mirrors that didn’t make me look that bad.

* Does this laptop make me look fat?

* Can someone follow me around with just the exact amount and color of light, by the way? That would help immensely.

* Yellow-ish light bulbs suck. See Starbucks cup photo taken in my office space: that’s not the tea giving off a yellow glow.

* In the laptop cam, I looked like I have jaundice.

* Hey! Can I take a sick day?

* Wait, I work for myself. Well, at least my boss will let me off easy.

To the weekend!

Random Thoughts Thursday: Things I Can’t Believe

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

This week: Things I Can’t Believe

  • Today is October 1.
  • How much my eyesight is changing now that I’m not 25 anymore.
  • That I got readers (reading glasses) at the dollar store… for $1.
  • That the meteorologist lady keeps calling Joaquin (wah-keen) Joaquim (wah-keemmmmmmmm, with emphasis on the m).
  • That anyone thinks of these weather ladies (why are many of them women now) as anything more than the Vanna Whites of the Weather — they pivot in place, they point (they don’t applaud, though, so there’s that).
  • That despite my advanced age and experience, there’s a 90 percent chance that when I turn the hand cream bottle upsidedown to dispense the cream, as I squeeze, the first splatter will land on my shirt and/or pants.
  • That the percentage of that happening increases to almost 100 if I’m wearing black or if I’m just about to head out the door.
  • That the Target parking lot is always packed — does no one work?
  • That the leaves haven’t really changed yet and they may never at the rate this season seems to be going (Held Hostage by Summer: Month Five… will it ever end?).I'm Still Here movie poster
  • That weather people somehow keep themselves from laughing when they say that we’re in the “Cone of Uncertainty.”
  • I CAN believe that the weekend is almost here and I’m looking forward to reading, by flashlight if I have to, whilst battoning down the hatches. If Joaquin does come, I hope it’s Mr. Phoenix. I’d be happy to see him (well, Walk the Line-era Joaquin, not so much I’m Still Here Joaquin).

Happy weekend, peeps!
