monday musings…

I find myself with around 11 seconds of free time while scarfing Concord grapes and writing a research paper due tomorrow, so what better thing to do than try to compose a short and hopefully coherent post…  Why yes, I did just say that Concord grapes are in season, YAY ! Oh, you meant about the paper due tomorrow that didn’t write itself while I was in the throes of migraine hell last night ? Cheeky bastard paper…

On to my new posting scheme, one that may actually last more than 2 weeks… well, maybe. =) Just a little randomness, things from my world, oh shit, I have 2 seconds left…


  1. Why do my skinny jeans bunch at the knees, leaving me less Claudia Schiffer and more Ramona Quimby ?
  2. Does 800 calories worth of sugar and milk in 2 pots of coffee constitute a meal by any stretch of the imagination ?
  3. Why is Punky sad ? Would Swedish Fish help ?
  4. Why does one get her ONLY cold of the entire fkn year days before a week of 2 papers and an exam ?
  5. Why do my professors conspire to have  2 papers due and an exam in the same week ?
  6. Would it be such a bad idea to have Blood Orange Cosmopolitans for dinner ?
  7. Why doesn’t Whole Foods deliver ?
  8. Why aren’t there any Honey Badgers in CT ?

And my mind is REALLY starting to wander at this point… 30second dance party, then my “Tish get to work” Elton John song, and back to the grind. Have a lovely, peeps… I’ll be around.

    Professors love to torment student. They all think their exam or assignment is more important than every other one. And, Swedish fish always help… So combine the fish with the paper writing.

    Alas… the candy would be for Punky girl, no delectable gummy sweetness for me, Scandinavian or otherwise… =(

    You are correct about the professors… if it weren’t for their timing, I’d love the lot of them this semester, so cannot really complain… =)

    The day before a research paper is due? Yes, in that case coffee MOST DEF constitutes a meal! More than one, if need be.

    Good luck with the cheeky bugger!

      Thank you, Alice who most assuredly IS Alice ! =) It is done, she says with a sigh and finality… thinking my 4.0 is gonna take a slight hit on this one, but I know I managed at least a 92% so can probably get the grade back up by finals… lol =)

    Punky is sad bcause she is happy for her friends and all their accomplishments but feels like she’s going nowhere in her life right now.

    Swedish fish are definitely worth a try to see if they make any marked improvements in mood. 😀

    ❤ ya dear!

      sweet Punky girl… don’t you know all your friends are totally FAKING IT ??!! =) =)

      Accomplishments ? Like one degree already that is obsolete, a kid who isn’t currently speaking to me, a retirement account worth, literally, $27.11 and the fact that I managed to give myself a yeast infection from the quart of sugar my body isn’t used to in the 2 gallons of coffee my body isn’t used to ? If so, then yup, I WIN !!!!!

      LMAO, my friend… hope to lighten your mood here, not belittle your feelings. You are totally getting fishies in the mail… at some point… =)
