Certifiable, Parts Un et Deux...

1. You know you are losing it when, upon glancing in the mirror you keep on your desk to prevent anyone from sneaking up on you, you think you see a person standing very quietly behind you… and you are slightly startled… but then realize that it is just your own. freaking. arm.

2. You commit the sin of listening to iTunes with earbuds at your computer. That alone is not the sin. The sin is FORGETTING that you have earbuds in and no one else can hear the music emanating from the illustrious iTunes. Oh, but they can surely hear you rocking out to ELO’s All Over the World .

Do these two events sum up my character in general, or could they have anything to do with the fact that I fell down 6 or 7 stairs this morning*? Hmmm…..


*At least I have a dog to blame for this one (he tripped me in his excitement to go to the family room and play), and at least the stairs were carpeted. And nothing seems to have been permanently damaged. And thank goodness I wasn't seriously hurt, since no one was home, and I wasn't near a phone. And boy, doesn't this sound like a great scenario for one of those commercials where "I've fallen, and I can't get up!?!"

Reads like you might of "rattled" a few things in there! Glad to read you didn't seriously get hurt, hope you'll feel better (overall!)!

Did you see my tag on your previous post?

Part Un = pretty freakin' hilarious.

As for Part Deux, i can relate, only instead of rocking out i keep trying to walk away from my laptop only to have my head jerked back whiplash style thanks to my ear-leash.

Yeah, I don't use headphones. I have my i-pod and` keep it on low so I can hear it but the people around me can't. I don't get caught singing along to The Shins or Robbie Williams...no. I get caught singing along to Elmo's World and the Hokey Pokey. Damn that kids playlist.

Ha! The joy of living alone! But you can't really be blamed--All Over The World DESERVES to be sung at top volume.

It could have been worse. I got caught in the copy room yesterday swaying to the rhythm of the feeder. I know I'm not the only one in the building that does that, but it was still embarrassing.

don't call me MA'AM said...

goldennib: ELO rules. And that's all I have to say about that.

-r-: thanks... I don't feel so alone now.

stinkypaw: oh, you know. It always hurts worse the following day. I'm walking around today like I'm 90 years old. haha And yes, I saw it... check your email! :-)


wire: AHAHAHA! I do that, too! Oh, that just made me laugh so hard.

libragirl: Some days, I just don't have a place to hide the iPod, and that looks bad when I go to meetings. haha And I'm with you on the kid mixes... I have been known to sing along-aloud- with Ma Na Ma Na from The Muppets a few times.

gabrielle: Absolutely. Yeah! Hell yeah! :-)

sparkling cipher: hmmm... now I'm going to be very self-conscious about using the copier. Thanks for the warning!

I think all dogs are secretly always trying to make us fall. I had a little terrier mix years ago that was fond of darting between my legs. Once, in an effort to avoid stomping her and/or falling down, I careened around my kitchen like it was a pinball machine, hitting alternate hips on every appliance and countertop in the room. I had huge bruises all over. The dog was fine.

Uh oh... steer clear of ladders.

1. I once woke up one morning and freaked out because there was a dead arm and hand in my bed. Turns out I slept with my arm under the pillow and my arm was so dead I thought it was someone else's.

2. My dog doesn't even pretend its an accident. In the middle of the night, when its dark and I'm trying to blindly find the bathroom, I make out the silhouette of the dog and step carefully to the side in order to avoid him. Just when I think I'm clear, he sticks out is paw to trip me and sends me tumbing head first into the door. I'm serious he actually TRIES to trip me.
