So yesterday, as a whole? Not so good. First I heard this story on NPR about this man’s son who committed suicide in Iraq in 2005 and the overall epidemic rate of suicide “in theater” I had this moment as I drove where I thought about how you can’t protect your kids from everything and it made me mildly weepy all day. And then writerly stuff, best left unspoken about because I’m over it now. And then? Hello, I am not pleased with the new Word nor Vista because they both decided last night “hey, let’s configure updates and shut down Lauren’s computer and don’t bother giving her any notice!” Yes, I was homicidal for about forty five minutes.
ANYWAY – so today I decided to buy
And this dress:
Not to be worn together of course.
I also decided what I’m going to wear to the EC party at RT. well okay, I had an idea yesterday and I was all excited about it so I IM’d Megan to blather about it. But, because we’re so much alike sometimes it’s a wee bit scary – she’d already had that idea and unless we wanted to look like each others’ dates I had to change my mind since she had the idea first. So I incorporated part of my idea into a new idea.
I also looked at sneakers – you know just simple slide on skimmers but cripes, I am not gonna spend 40 bucks on plain old flat tennis shoes. They’re not all super space aged running shoes or even designer shoes. I know, it’s old school of me but whatever. Now I have my cat shoes and I’m wearing those on the plane to RT because I have to have shoes easy on and off for the security check point thingamabob.
And yes, I am babbling. It’s that sort of day.
