Checking In w/ laura b.

I guess I haven't much to say today. So, I thought I'd just share some of my current events.

I have just begun reading Sock by Penn Jillette. It is a mystery whose narrator is a wiseass sock monkey. Pretty unusual...but it is Penn Jillette.

Just listening to "Beth" by KISS. Classic.

In spite of the heat, I smell like Caldrea White Clover lotion. Aren't you glad to hear that? Things could be much worse :-)

Chili dogs for dinner tonight. I make no promises about the way my breath will smell after that, but I know they will be delicious. I've been brewing chili all day long in the crock pot. Yum.

I am feeling sleepy. It is a combination of not enough sleep, duh, but also I think the fact that it is rather warm in here and quiet. The teens are watching a movie in the auditorium. I wish they'd show one everyday. haha!

Also, my feelings are hurt. Just one of those things, I suppose. But this too shall pass.

I'd love to hear all your most current events. If you are so inclined, do feel free to share. I promise not to hurt your feelings :-)

Oh... I'm sorry your feelings were hurt.

Love the sock money idea. I'll have to look into that one. I like odd things.

I have a lotion that I love for it's smell. I've no idea what it is, though. Someone left a tube of it in the staff room and never took it away... so I claimed it. I don't know what I'll do when it runs out. Everyone compliments me on the smell.

Oooh... grow! What a fun word. Kudos to AlienCG. I'm so glad you folks opened me up to the scavenger hunt. Fun stuffs.

Okay, here's one for ya. I gave a mock interview to a guy last quarter who's cologne was so strong it gave me a headache. But he was awesome otherwise. Very enchanting, actually. So today I interviewed a girl who happens to know that guy and had on the same cologne (or maybe it's a lotion) only more subdued). It's like a vanilla musk. I have a slight hunch they are more than just co-students.

I'm sorry your feelings are hurt, though. What happened? That last image is so realistic to what it's like to be hurt.

I'm hungry. I want a chili dog now.
My tire went flat on the way home yesterday.
White clover. Interesting.
My big boss just walked by my office and as usual was talking to herself.
I'm still hungry.
My friend is getting her ankle replaced today.
Another friend was just diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis but is challening the decision.
I'm still hungry.

Churlita said...

Chili dogs sound really good right now.

I'm sorry your feelings are hurt. As you know, I'm right there with you.

I had a chicken pot pie for lunch today. I was feeling a little sleepy this morning, but I'm a lot more alert now. Chili dogs do sound better than my chicken pot pie.

Ananda: Thank you. I'm really enjoying Sock...I can recommend it :-) I hope you find out what kind of lotion that is...I love nice smelling potions.
And I'm really glad you are doing the scavenger hunts. Yay!

Tara: haha! I guess it wouldn't be the best thing for a job candidate to be remembered mainly for his overwhelming aroma, even if it was a pleasant one. How funny that you met the person he is rubbing his scent off on :-)
And that image...when I found it it seemed like just how I felt. It was a misunderstanding that was soon cleared up, I am happy to say.

Pamela: Were you able to repair your tire? White clover has an almost bitter-ish smell, like real flowers, not perfume-y. I hope your friends ankle replacement went well and that she recovers quickly. Getting diagnosed with RA would be scary...I'd want to challenge that too. I hope they turn out to be wrong. But let me ask you...are you at all hungry?

Churlita: They were really good chili dogs :-)
And I thank you. My thing turned out to be mostly me being tired and irritable I think. Fortunately, it was not "complete ass" based.

AlienCG: I'm never quite sure about food heirarchies. Probably they tend to be pretty mood based, but these were damn fine dogs. I'm glad you are feeling alert. I am having a better day than I was yesterday :-)

First off, I'm glad you posted a bear picture. Guys got some massive claws... that book sounds awesome, I love sock monkeys!!!

Have you ever read the comic Maakies? It's very disturbing, but some of the drawings are quite cool. I like drinky crow... but they are too violent for me, so I enjoy that comic in extremely small doses.

I've been reading some Rarebit Fiend by Winsor McCay. What a wonderful imagination he had. Let's see, otherwise, I got a book called The Wild West Catalog, plan on using some of the images as jumping off points for drawings :)

Sebastien: Bears rule, as you know. :-) And I am really enjoying Sock.

I am kind of a comic book / graphic novel slow starter. The only ones I've really read are the Maus books and the Persepolis series, which were both amazing.

I am looking forward to seeing how The Wild West Catalog inspires you!!!

Sebastien said...

Oh yes, Maus! I'm currently rereading it, soooo good. And Persepolis is excellent as well.

Quick question: have you read James Thurber's 13 Clocks? I'm going to check it out and give it a read, heard about it in some article I was reading...

laura b. said...

Sebastien: Yes, I love James Thurber and 13 Clocks is quite extraordinary. Let me know how you like it :-)

Sebastien said...

Oh good, I can't wait to read it... I have so many books piled around me but I am going to work on that ONE!
