ďA poem begins with a lump in the throat.Ē Ė Robert Frost
I havenít had too many of those latelyÖ lumps, I mean. You know, in my throat. Okay, this isnít going ANYWHERE pretty, so Iím going to leave that ďas isĒ and weíll get on to my update. I actually got through yesterday WITHOUT killing anyone! Though I fantasized a backhand or two to ripe, audacious cheeks on the faces of lawyers, I showed restraint, I held myself back. And all was well in the world.
Lunch with John was lovely, we went to our usual, updates interspersed with playful jabs and laughs. Always a joy. When I was finally out of the office, I went home and entered some kind of catatonic state. Thatís right, I completely zoned out. I had my book next to me, but I hardly glanced at it. I just sat. And stared off into space. I told you, catatonic.
Then Jenny came over and plucked me right out of my distant reverie with her high energy, her odd noises, her wonderful company, and her geeky gesticulations. We talked, we laughed, we were complete idiots and it was completely WONDERFUL.
I see that the boys have updated their site! Complete with one of my favorite quotes (of mine) right on their home page! Check it out. Looking fabulous, boys, as always! That site just gets better and better over the years.
Okay, I need to share this with you, no particular reason. I donít know what happened to me this morning. Why I decided to shirk my usual uniform of red and/or black and go for this. Itís almost as if I wanted to challenge those around me to say something. Barb, uhÖ lavender with blue and yellow? I would say, ďThatís beige.Ē They would say, ďYeah, but, whatís with your hair? You look like you just stepped out of the Midwest or something. And címon, vertically-ribbed sweater material over a print? Is this a joke?Ē
No. Itís not a joke. All of my clothes are clean. I was overwhelmed! So I went for the one mix-match that I donít think Iíve ever worn, and wellÖ I wore it. I brought makeup with me to put on, but that would actually defeat my budding purpose. I am going to flaunt this atrocity through all of our offices todayÖ no oneís said anything yet. So why do I feel as if Iím actually going to get compliments? Such is my nature.
Iíll try and keep you updated, but I brought music today and after finishing all my tasks yesterday, I realize a brand new list is born this morning. Here I go, lavender, beige , blue, flat, dried-straight and clipped hairÖ I am SO ready for today.
Heeeeeeeeeee! Hee hee.
