Remember when you were young, you'd lose yourself

This video makes me happy.

Song: "In the Morning" by Razorlight.

Bathing in the waters of a sea of self-belief

It's a sad statement that the thing in my life I'm most excited about right now is the new playlist I made in iTunes last night (seriously, though, I love it).

When I caught myself

I don't care who you are; if you're not grinning like an idiot by the end of this video, you have a heart of stone. You probably hate puppies, too.

You've said what you had to, now leave

Some thoughts on a rainy Sunday afternoon:

1. I've accomplished shockingly little from my to-do list for the weekend. However, I don't care.
2. Glen Hansard's voice makes my insides go all silly.
3. I made coffee at home instead of stopping at Dutch Bros. on my way home from Mass. Proud of myself for saving a few dollars. Unfortunately, I used the last of the bag and now have none for tomorrow morning. This is distressing.
4. My dreams have become increasingly lame lately. No lie, I dreamt the other night that I wanted to find new bedside tables for my room, and then planned to paint my bedroom furniture. Who dreams about crap like that?! Me, it would seem.
5. I have no other thoughts at this time.
6. I lied just now.
7. The other day, one of my clients (a 4-year-old girl) was playing with two toy turtles while I was taking down some data. I glanced up to see how she was doing, and I saw her put the turtles' hands together and say "yeah!". She made the turtles high-5 each other. Some days, I really do love my job.
8. < /thoughts >

I liked you better before

So here's a fun story from the Conversations with Coworkers File:

Was walking in downtown Cd'A this afternoon with Amazonian and some kids. We passed the restaurant where I had my first (and last) date since moving to Idaho way, waaaay back when. I commented that the food was excellent and mentioned said date. This reminded her of a conversation she'd had with her fiance a few months ago, wherein he'd asked her if she had any single friends for his friend. She thought of me, as we had just talked about my singleness a few days before. A paraphrased exchange:

"Is she slutty?"
"Yeah, I haven't known her that long, but I don't get that vibe from her. I'm going to go with no."
"Well, I think he's looking for someone sort of skanky."
"If that changes, maybe we can revisit this idea."

So it's nice to know that Mission: Don't Act Like A Slut has been successful.

I'm flattered that she initially thought of me?

I don't know.

Moving on.

I wonder what the odds are that I'll actually go to the gym tomorrow after work if I try justify not going tonight with that excuse? Probably not good. In my defense, I had every intention of taking workout clothes with me this morning and heading over there this afternoon after my client had been picked up. I just ran out of time this morning! Promise.
