Random is My Middle Name

It is! Really! Anyway, here is some random stuff.

Looking up pictures disguise a multitude of flaws. Awesome.

* Yesterday, my dad was so rude to me on the phone that I started crying at work. My stepmom, who is always on the phone in tandem with him felt so bad and kept trying to make it better. I told him I was upset and was at work and needed to get off the phone. Since then he's called back a few times, but I haven't answered. I will call him back, but I need to decide how to handle it. He's not an easy person to talk to.

* Today I am feeling particularly unlovely. You know those days? I dislike being made aware of my physical self. Mostly I go around looking out my eye holes, you know. But sometimes I suddenly look at myself and just go, "Good gawd!" It passes though, fortunately.

* Tomorrow is "Album Sides Wednesday" on 100.3 The Sound. They play actual album sides and old people like me get super pumped to hear those crackles and pops. I am so going to listen at my desk...even though I don't have much time at my own desk on Wednesdays. There is the drive too, of course.

So, there you have it. My past, present, and future. All random. And okay, okay, I give up! My middle name is not really Random. It is Slappy. There, glad we got that settled.

I'm so sorry that your dad was so rude and upset you like that! Don't call him back, let him wait it out until he calls again.

I think we've all had those days where we've felt unlovely. It's totally deflating.

My brothers can be rude sometimes. And they usually say stupid crap when I'm already tired. I've thrown the phone across the room sometimes, they've frustrated me so much.

Tara: haha! I should've thrown the phone across the room. That probably would have helped quite a bit :-)

You look beautiful! wonderful photo!

I think we all have those sorts of days, some of us worse than others.
I recommend sucker punching a random stranger in the face. I feel like I've given this advice before!

Sebastien: Aw, you're too kind.

You know, some advice is just worth hearing again. On that particular day, someone deserved a sucker punch.

Well, if means anything to you, I think you're beautiful. So, don't listen to that bad voice that's making you feel differently.
