Dumpity dump

Because I was dumpy today. Others I know have been snippy lately. Been there, done that but dumpy describes me better today. That means down in the dumps [somewhat] and not finding a whole lot to look forward to. Except for the same ol’ same ol’.

So. How ’bout if I *try* to think of a few good things?

#1 — A beautiful [and much younger] woman at my work waltzed past my cube today and asked if I had gotten a hair cut. Well, yes! She loved it and so do I!!! I don’t know her well enough to bother telling her that my very own Mouse cut my hair on her beautiful apartment balcony two Sundays ago.

#2 — A few mundane conversations with various people that made me think I am actually capable of making some decent decisions.

#3 — The big scrap-hauling semi that turned over (the driver walked away…) at the [horrible] freeway entrance that I usually take to get to work closed eastbound I94 completely for *hours* today and jammed up the Jackson/Maple intersection. Thanks to our work receptionist goddess, we were informed that all of this might impact our homebound commute and I was able to make it home in good time via an alternate route.

#4 — The GG is heading north this weekend. I will miss walking down to the Old Town Barrroooom tomorrow night but I will be using my time alone here to continue to tink away at de-hoarding. Better to do it now than as an octogenarian.

#5 — I have gifted Mouse and/or Squeaky with the “doll blanket” in the photooo. Yes, it is a tea towel from the 1950s or maybe even earlier. When I was a small child, it was one of my “doll blankets”. It seems to be the only one of those that survived.

Anyone wanna meet at Knight’s tomorrow night? Lemme know.

    Can I be both dumpy and snippy? I’m actually more like crabby. It’s pretty hot, I’m not getting enough done, I’m TIRED.

    @ #4 to bad you live in a single story. I have often threaten the boyz with the idea of erecting an orange chute into a dumpter in the driveway.

    Yes! I want to meet with you tomorrow night, but my Startrek teleporter unit is broken. Where’s Scotty when we need him?

    I might be able to do Knight’s tonight. (Friday) Let’s touch base later. I had plans last night that fell thru but they may be resurected for tonight. I need to check that out first.

    man! if I’d been keeping up with reading blogs…. then again, Friday nights are tough for dinner commutes 😉 (esp with dogz that keep me from doing spur-of-the-moment stuff 🙁 )
