Off My Game

Random thoughts from this weekend:

My schedule got all turned around. I wish I knew how to hit the reset. I am feeling pretty restless for 9:45 on a Sunday night.

I got only one of the Final Four teams right. So did President Obama, who knows a thing or two about basketball. I guess I shouldn't feel bad.

It is wonderful to wake up to a thunderstorm and be able to turn over and go back to sleep.

If someone invites you to a Nigerian Engagement Ceremony, you should definitely attend.

At any solemn event, someone's cell phone is sure to ring. Usually this happens multiple times. I can't understand why the first mistake doesn't cause people to check their own phones to make sure it doesn't happen again. Do people not even feel embarrassed about this anymore?

PDM and I still don't like crowds.

A study session with a friend helped me know what I don't know for the board exam. And showed me how inelegantly I answer physics questions out loud. We've got a long way to go to be able to answer smoothly, but it is good to have friends to practice with. It will get better.

We're short-staffed at work for the next week and a half. I hope it's not awful.

Our house isn't going to clean itself. We've given it plenty of chances.

Damn lazy good for nothing house...

Jeni said...

Damn. You mean I'm not the only one whose maid or fairy godmother didn't show up to do the cleaning? I hate when that happens, don't you?

Dianne said...

my house is stubborn like that as well

loved the shots of Zima, she looks wonderful - Siren loves those feather things, Mia just stares at me like I'm a loon

Practice makes perfect. I know you will do great.

Word Verif: martator

What is that?

we didn't get the thunderstorm but we sure did get the rain.

Dave said...

I spent years trying to conjure a self-cleaning home. I have no spiritual talent.

LL - damn ungrateful house.

Jeni - we only clean when we're having people over.

Dianne - my kitties all like chasing stuff on a string.

BC - hope so.

Red - thunder, lightning... the whole works.

Dave - I don't own anything that is self cleaning, except the cats.

Red said...

I missed the self cleaning house part of this post! LOL. Wow and the comments are all over that one... SHOWS YOU HOW MUCH I WAS PAYING ATTENTION

Red - the self cleaning house is what EPCOT should have invented. To hell with all the futuristic crap they think they came up with. They completely missed the boat.

Kathleen said...

Yup, that's when my house gets cleaned - when people are coming over. It's really beyond time to invite someone to visit.
