OMG, Ponies!

I am in a pretty good mood today, though I really don't have a reason to be.

I slept like crap last night - as I have been for days now. It keeps taking me hours to fall asleep. Then I start waking up a few hours later until I drag myself out of bed. I think it helped that Danny and I got up before our alarm today. No use in prolonging the misery. My eyes are twitching our of exhaustion, but oh well.

Today I am wearing the new jeans I bought on sale yesterday. I'd always wanted jeans with the little flappy back pockets, but had never found any that looked right on me. The description they have on the website for them is all kinds of lame: These jeans are 2 hot to pass up! Featuring rivets and buttons adorned with "2" for twice the trendiness! Twice the trendiness! OMG, ponies!!

Admitting you have a problem is the first step, right? I have a problem. I am addicted to Starbucks. I'm not even a coffee person! I had an iced soy chai last night after dinner, and I was compelled by my good mood to go get the warm version. Just about everyone at our local Starbucks knows me and that I get soy chai's in my personal mug. And, while I like saving trees with my personal mug, they can't write on it, so sometimes new people get my drink wrong. Today, they very much gave me a coffee latte, not a chai (tea) latte. Coffee tastes like floor cleaner to me. And, sweetening it doesn't help - that just makes it taste like sweet floor cleaner. I think coffee is a great addition to chocolate making mocha lattes quite good), but beyond that - meh. Anyway, my normal barista fixed my drink and gave me a free drink coupon. Bonus!

The weather was so pretty on the drive to work that I didn't mind the bad traffic. I opened my windows and cranked up my music.

I am wearing my hair in a "new" style today. I figured out to get all my hair up in an almost real bun! Not a small feat when you have 30"/5 lbs of wet hair. It involves one large, head-sized rubber band, two wrist-sized rubber bands, and some muscles.

I changed the angle of my work cam. You can see some of my office decorations now. The bulletin board has photos and notes that customers have given me. The pink and yellow star is from my birthday this year (my coworker and I always decorate each others' desks). The A-P-P-Y is the "HAPPY" from the Hello Kitty birthday banner my coworker put up for my birthday last year. Along the bottom, you can see another bulletin board, a painting of a chow chow in the snow that I bought at a pet expo, and a Pantone color book opened to the doggy daycare's colors. I don't know who that girl is - she kept getting her big head in the way of my pictures.

It is freezing in my office! We've been keeping it cool here for the dogs. Now that the heat wave seems to be over, it is rather arctic. I have a heater on my feet and a blanket on my arms. I can't feel my fingers! But, who needs fingers?

I am eating tasty banana bread that was made and delivered to me by the lovely Tamara yesterday. And, she even left out the walnuts, so I don't have to worry about my mouth and throat going numb and swelling shut. Bonus!

Here is a poll for you, because it is Wednesday, and I have pants!

Wednesday Poll!!
