i try...

but you know how i'm enamored with fingers and wrists dripping with cool. plus that turquoise. never get tired of any of this...




i've been having one of those monday moods. you know. i've got too much to do but, man, i really should be doing more, mixed in with equal parts i'm awesome and boo...i stink.

do you ever have mondays like this? say yes.

but instead of worrying about it, i'm totally blowing it off. this is more difficult than it sounds. i've previously tried this tactic with musses in my house, but i still end up vacuuming at ten pee em.

{that's how lillie spelled it in first grade. this was also the year she abbreviated her name lkm because lillie kate mackin plum wore her out. i still giggle about her odd little confidence.}

anyway. i thought i had so much to tell you, but the only things my head is holding is i may start wearing necklaces again. i've got to get over this weird I'M CHOKING weirdness. i need to stretch more. especially after a run or the 100 workout. this plus my new magnifying ray-ban wayfarer glasses leads me to believe i may be getting older. nah. that can't be right. i've also got to stop describing people i may dislike as pigs. that seems really offensive. more so than a swear. i've got to meet two deadlines and instead i'm writing nonsense and complaining in my head about my chilled fingertips, and then i read this...

exactly. happy monday, you. if you're in a mood, blow it off with me. there's power in groups.

i learned that gem in finding nemo and norma rae. xoxo.

hands here. words here.

Speaking of Norma Rae, I was watching WHAT WOULD YOU DO? on Friday night with my husband and shouting at the TV...and thought of you. Any luck with the neighbors? Here's hoping they just...disappear. :)

Happy Monday!

I AM in a mood! However I think it has less to do with Monday and more to do with me just feeling like a b*tch today and not caring enough to try to correct it. I guess I'm blowing off the "hey, stop thinking b*tchy because it shows in your attitude" feeling I have in the way back of my mind. I also think it helped tremendously to read about someone else's mood (even if it's a sweeter kind of mood than I'm currently experiencing). I really hope that people only read your post today and don't notice the comments...

i guess since our morning temperature right now is 19, i'll take it and be happy that an earthquake hasn't come our way.

sometimes pig really is the only description that works for certain types....

and all weekend my hubby called me snarky. granted, i was in a snarky mood so it wasn't uncalled for. i think when i dropped the f bomb three times in front of our 19 year old while on a little road trip together, he really knew then messing with me probably would have to wait till wednesday or so just to be safe.

erica said...

yes. me too. exactly.

Richie Designs said...

yes, all of it.

my list just doubled though while I was having fun with you here. {ugh}

monday. blah. glad to know it's not just me today. ;)

Wrists and fingers are the best. Ear lobes with hoops are my other fave. My neck is always bare but I found a locket I think I must have so I might join you in wearing necklaces. Though, they'll never be tight because they always give me headaches. I imagine it's my ancient soul telling me necklaces aren't for me just like it tells em chunky rings and bangles and hoops give me strength =)

i don't just have mondays like that. every single day is like that for me. i like to pile on the world and pretend i'm not having a hard time carrying it while still trying to load myself even more. it's exhausting but exciting and somehow i love it all.

Oh good. It's not just me.

yes. of course. yes.

i want to have those particular hands so bad, i can hardly explain.

well if you and your ray-ban glasses are getting older, that means me and my ray-ban glasses are getting older too. and i dont prescribe to idea thanks all the same. so i think the fact we opt for rayban rather than chanel makes us living in the minute young. so, no. have disproved that idea nicely i think.

Someone mentioned something recently about having on their cranky pants, and i said mine were firmly on too, but mine had shrunk in the wash. i've currently got cranky pants with a wedgie. time for a Bowen treatment. Might be good for you too mate. Doesnt hurt.

promise.

Gracious - now I want to wear some turquoise nail polish. And buy a big, masculine silver watch. Not in a mood, but your writing always brightens my day regardless. I've missed a few days and now I'm loving the crazy quote, the dead hookers line, and craving some time in the sun myself. Did you get anywhere with a decision in the (10)minute-men?

I wasn't having a Monday. But today I'm having a Tuesday. A big fat piggy, choking Tuesday. It sucks like all hell and, to be honest, I came over here for a little pick-me-up. And you know what? You never fail me. Thank you, friend.
