Today I'm...

Working on...the doily.

Not very hard though. Mostly I'm just sitting in front of the computer wasting time. I have to make myself get up or I will get nothing accomplished. Where does the time go when you sit at the computer? It's like you get sucked into a giant black hole and time disappears and has no meaning.

Reading...the Richard Burton Diaries.
Sometimes interesting, sometimes not.

Eating...these are SO GOOD!

And a little nostalgic.

1.  At around midnight last night I stood in the dark with just the light of the refrigerator to see. I was refilling my water cup with ice. I got a big scoop of ice, and there was a big lump of finely-crushed ice on the end. Do you know where this is going? LOL. I love finely-crushed ice. So I stuck the end of the ice scooper to my lips to get the crushed iced in my mouth, and the scooper immediately and painfully froze to my bottom lip. "Shitshitshitshitshit! Getitoffgetitoffgetitoff!" I said in my head while dancing around hoping it would hurry up and fall off. After it finally did come off, my bottom lip was instantly throbbing. I stood there laughing in the dark all by myself. How could I have not learned that lesson in 53 years? My lip still hurts.

2.  It's very HOT and 69% humidity outside at this very moment. Gross.

3.  I'm going to learn to tat. Next time I go to H.L., I'm buying a couple of shuttles. I watched a few video lessons on YouTube, and it looks easy enough, albeit a little fiddly because everything is so small. I'm sure it's not as easy as it looks until you get the hang of it. It's got to be better than knitting, which I hate by the way. I've finally decided that it's just a fact. I can do it, but I just don't like to. Simple as that.

4.  "I was never one to patiently pick up broken fragments and glue them back together again and tell myself that the mended whole is as good as new. What is broken is broken, and I'd rather remember it as it was at its best than mend it and see the broken places as long as I lived." Margaret Mitchell

5. I would like to go to New York City one day and see the 9/11 Memorial and stand on Ground Zero. I hope I can do it without crying (sobbing even), but I don't think I could. I'd prefer to go alone, too, I think.

6. My daddy has severe food allergies. He is allergic to oatmeal, raisins, grapes, and walnuts. Kinda weird. I am only allergic to penicillin.

7. You know those crochet covered rocks? I saw one on Etsy for $60. It wasn't even big! It made me laugh because it was so ridiculous. She will probably sell it tomorrow and email me saying, "Now who's ridiculous, bitch?" LOL.

8. I'm gonna go take a nap with my dogs. See ya.
