there are seven lipglosses in my hand. they're all the same, just different shades, and sadly, what you don't see is that there are three more littering my work area. if you can't figure it out, i have a problem. i've mentioned it before, and for a while i thought i was getting better, but as you can see it's just a lie i tell myself. besides, they just show up on my desk, it's not like i asked for them. not that i'd turn them down if i was asked. (thanks miss anneh the enabler!). oh and if you couldn't figure this part out, it's pretty obvious that i'm made happy by just the little things.
ps. our building was on fire today. i wanted to do a picture surrounded by flames, but i didn't have enough candles. or a fire fighter's hat. also, if our building was robbed last week, and on fire this week, what do you think will happen next week?
okay, that's not really true. i can believe it. i mean, i'm no dummy and am very aware of the difference between real paper and kindle epaper. what i can't believe though, is how incredibly thin this thing is.
i'm not 100% sure why we need one of these, but randall likes to keep us part of the future, so i try not to question it too much. besides if this means my house will no longer be littered by books that randall pays too much for and reads just once, then i'm okay with it. also it's actually pretty cool.
in related news, apparently the day randall bought this was the day i told myself i was going to start using the library more often.
and that pretty much sums the two of us up.
we were supposed to be hanging out at the noisepop 2009 kickoff party this evening. however someone was still a sickaroo and i was feeling really sleepy/tired and am worried that i am going to catch randall's version of the cold if i let my guard down. besides we're old funhaters these days and who needs noise when we can sit at home in the quiet. oh god, randall's plan has finally come to fruition. i am turning into a noise-hating old lady. halp!
ps. i really really really want this cough to go away. it hurts.
today is burger's birthday. randall and i like her enough to have set our alarms in time for brunch at bar tartine.
afterwards, burger and i spent the rainy day indoors doing some clothing shopping. neither of us are big on shopping, so it was an exercise in ridiculousness. the only thing we could do was follow that up cupcakes and birthday songs.
i think this picture explains itself.
it's been that sort of a nesting saturday. the one unfortunate thing is that all spare blankets were brought to portland as our host (one scottelbot) did not have enough items for two sets of visiting guests. it was totally reasonable to put them in our trunk and bring them with us. however it was not reasonable to put them on a plane when we came back. luckily we left one here at home, and i have been supplementing that with extra chunky sweaters.
now i am sort of a hot mess, but hey, what are you gonna do?
i got this one, don't tell me. i'll figure it out in just a sec...
tonight was a total nerd friday. a long time ago (at least 6 months) burger tipped us off to a live taping of wait wait don't tell me. so we bought our tickets and wait-waited. it was pretty funny, and was more or less what i expected. i did however make this face a lot. this is my fake wait wait laugh. whenever the jokes are sort of bad (but you know you're going to laugh anyway) i make a really big fake laugh. HAR HAR HAR HAR HAR.
ps. i am sick and apologize if this post makes no sense. nyquil is kicking in.
i work in a very fancy building. and by fancy i mean FAN-SAY. as in there are tour groups that regulary go through it sort of fancy. in addition to housing a bunch of offices (and possibly a ghost), it also houses a bank. and well today the bank was robbed (or so the rumors and closed gates say).
for the record i had nothing to do with it. although i must say, i've often thought that a bank that fancy was just asking for it.
