Where Does the Time Go?

I'm still in shock at how busy things are at work. My work year always has it's peaks and valleys, but there's not a valley in my sights right now. Gargh. Without looking back, I can't even tell you when I last posted here. This makes me a Sad Frump.

So, again... here's a quick list of stuff on my mind, since I don't have time for anything else.

1. Humidity sucks. I have stick-straight hair... I work hard to make it look "decent." And it does. Until I walk outside. I've worn my hair in an up-do more than I care to think about lately. Bring on fall weather, please!

2. I don't know why, but I can't stop craving sushi. I would eat sushi every day if I had the chance. We've had sushi probably 5 times in the last two weeks. Even the Bobblehead* was eating some sushi on the Food Network last night. Not helping the cravings.

3. People who have never lived through the destruction of a tornado do not understand the urgency of taking shelter immediately after a warning is announced. Yes, Farm Boy, this means YOU. We were lucky during this last storm... no tornado, but it was one hell of a storm. We were driving through 70-80 mph wind gusts. Scary.

4. I'm sort of looking forward to my class reunion this weekend. There are a lot of people I can't wait to see.

5. Farm Boy joined a gym. He wants me to join, and I'm all for it... unless it's a bunch of "plastics" who go at the same time I do. I left my last gym for that reason. When I go to a gym, I don't want to worry about what I look like... I just want to work out. If I have to get on an elliptical next to Barbie Anorexic with the DD implants, I'm sooooo outta there.

That's all I've got for now. I have a day off on Friday to help College Daughter move into her dorm, and then I'll be readying myself for the reunion activities (read here: try not to look older than I actually am). At any rate, it should be good for a few posts... that is, if I have time to post anything!

Over and out.

*You know who she is.

1. Yep, humidity. I agree.

2. I've never had sushi, nor do I plan to. More for you, I guess. :)

3. I've never been through a tornado, but we still scurry everyone to the basement as soon as that siren sounds.

4. Reunion, eh? Won't catch me at mine. Have fun. :)

5. I always disliked that about the gym, too!

1. Hunidity does suck, I'm with you on that one!

2. Sorry don't know who she is... :-(

3. Don't need to have been through a tornado to stay in during a serious storm! Farm Boy likes to live dangerously, doesn't he?!

4. I'd be curious to see some people too... Have fun, and I'm sure you'll look just great!!

5. The "plastics" and the "big" boys... argh!

So glad to hear from you.

The humidity is making my hair one big poof ball. I hate it.

California Rolls are the closest I come to Sushi.

I bet you have a great reunion.

Gyms like that remind me of pickup bars. Yuck.

I get stuck on particular cravings like that. Right now it's a particular noodle dish from my favorite Vietnamese restaurant. Which unfortunately is on the other side of town, so I haven't been able to indulge my craving as I would like. Grr. Sushi sounds good too, suddenly. (I'm so suggestible.)

Don't mind what other people look like at the gym. Just do your own thing. My gym clothes have always consisted of ugly old t-shirts and 10-year-old shorts, and I am ok with that. =)

3car: it's so NICE of you to leave all the sushi for me! Thanks! ;-)

stinkypaw: she is Giada. And I'm not sure I'd say the Farm Boy likes to live dangerously... it's more like stupidity. haha

goldennib: I like California Rolls too, but sashimi and spicy tuna... oh, man! It's 7am and I already want sushi. That's a bad sign, eh?

lizgwiz: suggestible? Okay... you're feeling like you want to meet up with me for a "blate" and buy me all the sushi I can eat. (I'm a light eater, so that actually wouldn't be too bad. hahaha)

-r-: I'm okay with doing my own thing, but I honestly can't stomach listening to the inane banter of those imbeciles while I'm just trying to do my own thing. I guess it's not that I feel inadequate as much as I can't stand that kind of atmosphere. HOWEVER, I've been reassured that our new gym is not like that. So, we'll see??

About going to the gym; i was going to link to picture of a female body builder with some sort of witticism like "DCMM after a hard day at the gym" but after googling "Female bodybuilder" i can safely say that there is nothing funny out there - just 41,500 hits of wrong.

wire: HAHAHAHAHAH! I don't even want to think about that, but your comment still made me laugh hysterically! *must stop reading wire comments while at work*
