BOOOOGER!

Published by at 5:30 am under kids,random

Well I’m back, and it’s this afternoon now. I just have to say that I’m feeling much better. I hope that Ethan is also feeling better, because when I talked to him on the phone (James called me so that Ethan could ask me where his “Trains” book is, how cute is that) he sounded like an 80-year-old man with a cigarette habit. Just imagine that.

I’m beginning to think (not for the first time) that my mental problems all stem from a lack of sleep. When I get all depressed and tripped out, I usually look first at how much sleep I’ve gotten the night before. Seriously. I gotta have teh 8 hours. And me not so much with the 8 hours lately. Thursday I stayed up way too late and in the morning, I decided sleep was much more important that a shower. That of course was the day the boss decideded to take me and another new coworker out to lunch. Look at that up there. I typed in “decideded”. It’s like my fingers just didn’t want to stop. decidededededed.

Anyway, I just wanted to post this so that the whole 3 of you who were reading didn’t get all bummed out because I was bummed out. I still think worms might be tasty, but not as much as this morning and last weekend. I promise I won’t veer into oncoming traffic on my way home tonight.

Tonight! Halloween! Kind of sucks because James has class, but we figured we will get the kids ready and go trick or treating with them at like 5:45 (yes, we will be THOSE PARENTS who go out with their kids incredibly early and you think, “gee, it can’t be trick or treaters ALREADY?! Yes it can, and here we are. Ding Dong!) and then we’ll come home and they’ll stay in their costumes til bed and we’ll answer our own door and hand out candy til bedtime. I’m sure I’ll post pictures soon. I’ll have to figure out how to do that.

Have you ever really looked at the lines on your hands and fingers? It’s really very cool. Most of my fingerprints have a swirl that goes up and then back down but never connects into an actual circular pattern. Like looking at a tongue sticking out and upward, only in profile. But then I do have like, 2 fingers that DO connect and have little circles in the very middle. It’s weird how I have both, at least, I think it is. I wonder if most people only have one or the other, or if I’m normal in this regard. It reminds me of Dr. Johnny Fever on WKRP in Cincinati, sacked out under his desk, staring at his hand and saying, “Duuuuude… your hand is like a little tiny.. freeway.. The thumb is the off ramp..” and continuing on while the laugh track grows in quantity. It’s funny how I never got when I was a kid that he was either always stoned or drunk or perhaps both. I love(d) that show. My mom did too, thus, how I have seen every episode ever made.

Off to work some more.
