Random Observations
Thursday, September 20, 2007
This has been a strange week - I sort of feel as though I'm underwater. Everything has been moving slowly, languidly, then once or twice a day, I'll mentally surface and realize time is speeding by - things are noisier in these moments. It makes me just want to dive back under. Weird.


1. Talking to Sean when he is overseas is strange. I'm lucky to have all my family here in the US, so I rarely have international phone calls. I'm always dumbfounded by the call quality, and how there is almost zero delay. I know it sounds stupid, but I guess I'll always be one of those people who thinks technology is just STRANGE.

2. Eating 2 cups of grapes is really difficult. Have you ever sat down to eat 2 or more cups of any given fruit or vegetable? I portioned out all my food last night (post-grocery store run, like a good little dieter) so I could grab something on the way out the door this morning. I did, and now I've got this damn bag o'fruit on my desk, mocking me. It's going to take me all afternoon to eat these grapes, I swear.

3. I don't drink orange juice nearly enough. The more pulp, the better. Too bad it's so high in sugar.

4. Generally, I avoid teeny bopper shows and movies (with few exceptions such as "John Tucker Must Die" and "The Devil Wears Prada") but last night, I got sucked into "The Gossip Girl" on the CW. It's embarassing to admit, but I am h-o-o-k-e-d.

5. Once upon a time, I sincerely enjoyed ironing. It's luster has faded, however, as evidenced by the leaning tower of button-downs and work pants on my dining room table. Dammit.
