But that was last night and this is almost noon

When last we left me I was complaining about biting the inside of my mouth/lip. So while I waited for the oven to preheat so I could finally get dinner going I thought gum would help with the biting. And it did until that inevitable moment where I went to bite on the gum and caught the inside of my cheek instead!

Naturally, after I did this I had to go and tell my husband. Because that’s what weird people like us do. I can’t explain it, we just roll with it. Thankfully his response was not some smart ass comment but a shrinking in pain with sympathy. Smart man, very smart man. FINALLY the oven was ready for my meh fish sticks. I say meh because of them being gluten free. Some things including fish sticks WERE NOT MEANT to be gf. But I’m glad they are so I can eats them.

Om nom nom...kind of.

They look way beter on the box. Trust me. I’m an expert! Now earlier in the day the Hubbins (who had the day off) was out running errands and knew I needed more yummy tartar sauce for said fish sticks. He texted to ask if any would do. I of course said sure. I mean how many brands could there be? He came home with this…

I wonder if there happens to be an ABLES cocktail sauce out there.

I have never hear of this brand. His response was that I had told him it didn’t matter and he was right. But I still expected the markets brand over something like this. Did it taste fine? Sure I mean you really can’t screw up tartar sauce too badly. I just like messing with him. I chowed down all the fish sticks and went back to interneting. While wasting my time on the internet I realized my husband was getting up super early the next morning. Which usually meant I would be getting up early too.

Long story short I went to bed and was quickly surrounded by two cats. Seriously they weigh 8.2 and 9.2 pounds respectively. So someone explain why when they get on either side of my legs they become little vises and I can’t move… Then they both started to sing me the song of their people¬†furman(?) and I was soon asleep.

So did I wake up when my Hubbins got up. Yes, but I was quickly lulled back to sleep by a cat. To top it off the cats let me sleep in! Which could only mean my husband fed them before he left. Score one for him.

Today I thought about getting dressed and even did throw on pants, but let’s face it I didn’t want to deal with a belt today. Yoga pants covered in cat fir for the win! Paired of course with the “boob” shirt as we now call it. Let me explain, there is this website called Teefury.com. The deal is they only sell one shirt per day. Once the day is done the shirt is GONE for good. I’ve bought a few things from them recently as their shirts run to the geeky side of things.

A few weeks ago they had their grab bag sale. They do print some extras of the shirts or something like that and ever six months they do a $6 grab bag offer. You pick your size and you get a mystery shirt. Well, I got one for me and one for the Hubbins. His shirt was all kinds of cool spells from Harry Potter. I got a Halo shirt…

The only part truth to the shirt is the wording at the top UNSTABLE - it happens to the best of us.

Thus the “boob” shirt is born. Said shirt is also only worn when I don’t plan to leave the house. It sure is comfy, but yeah not something I feel I can wear out…yet. Then this week Teefury did a very MEAN thing to me. They offered up not one, but TWO Sherlock (BBC version) shirts! What the hell?! I am not made of money here people! But I did buy both, shhh! Hey they were both very cool and I will post pictures of them when they arrive.

So now the rest of the day is mine to do with as I please. My guess is more internets, reading, working on my own book (I have a new idea), and things like that. Camp NaNoWriMo starts Monday for a month. I’ve signed up, but I’m not really into pushing myself like I did for regular NaNoWriMo. But I’m going to see where the month takes me.

Enjoy your Saturday!


Blog Dump {First of Many}

So I’ve got a little, yet a lot to say…

First few things have to do with recent Facebook posts. A friend of ours recently began using public transportation (due to a parking issue near his work). Most of the comments were nice and light. BUT one, now that struck a chord. The comment was:

This is why I drive my Volvo (with seat warmers) all the way to the Capitol. As a plus, I get to avoid the riffraff on the CDTA (you excluded of course!)

Really? Riffraff? Plenty of people take the bus everyday for various reasons. Heck I’ve taken the bus! It is not my favorite mod of transport, but not because of those riding the bus. But usually because of how long it takes to get anywhere on the bus! Also these “riffraff” how does this guy know? I mean he drives a Volvo! Sure he might have been joking…but still.

Maybe I’m being harsh, but I don’t think so. People ride the bus because it is cheaper than a car, their car broke down, whatever. Who cares why they take the bus, but seriously let’s not call them riffraff. They’re people who happen to ride the bus to get where they’re going. Sheesh! Also when someone says riffraff THIS is all I can think of:

Richard O'Brien was amazing (I thought). (found via - enterthelaughter.com)

So yeah I would find it pretty cool to have this “riffraff” on the bus! Think of how much faster my ride would be AND musical!

Facebook topic number two. Calling a gluten allergy
“the latest mass hysteria”. Seriously? So Celiac Disease is all in my head and I’m doing this to be cool? Yeah trust me it is not cool when I have gluten. Don’t get me wrong I can sneak in some now and again AND I’ve been known to cheat.

But I’ve also been known to pay the price for doing so. Trust me kids it sucks! So it really works my last note when people think it’s a fad diet or hysteria. Sigh…

Let’s see what else is new and exciting in the world of me…I’m getting some new equipment at work. Which makes me happy…new laptop and tablet thingy. Hopefully Monday. I mean most of the stuff is there in the office, but we’re waiting for our tech guy to come over and make it pretty for us. Exciting I know!

Writing? Working on my novel? Yeah that hasn’t gone anywhere fast since Friday. I blame feeling sick, yeah that’s it. But maybe I also really dislike the story. So I’m taking some advice from Neil Gaiman…he basically said once (at least I think it was him) “Just write”. I don’t think he really cared what you wrote, just that you did it. So I’m going to play a little with some of the other 100+ story ideas dancing around in my head and see what tumbles out of it. Who kno maybe someday you’ll all say you knew me when! Wouldn’t that be something?

Also I still feel like death. I have a sinus infection. Urgent care doc told me to try mucinex. Wow that was a co-pay well spent. NOT!
