Thanks to everyone who participated in my first “Ask Me Anything” segment. I really enjoyed doing it, and I hope you enjoyed it too. I might do another such segment sometime next month. But now, its time to move on!
So, here are some random observations from the past few days:
*Driving to work early Tuesday morning, I watched the moon set, not behind the tree-crowned horizon, but behind the shadow of the Earth itself. It was a spectacular, almost creepy sight, watching the moon literally vanish into thin air.
*Green bananas really don’t taste very good.
*Just because the sky is blue and the sun is shining bright doesn’t mean its not 15 degrees outside. So bundle up if you know what’s good for you.
*Dumping 4 bags of Hershey’s Special Dark Chocolate Candies into a bowl and proudly displaying the loot on the table doesn’t prevent chocaholics from binging on them. Hiding said bowl behind cereal boxes on the refrigerator does work–but not when chocaholic in question is the one that does the hiding. Can anyone say tummy ache?
*You know the State must need some revenue when, while driving a 35-minute commute, you see no less than four traffic cops ticketing drivers–when they haven’t bothered to enforce the speeds limits in a year.
*I really like the way the tap springs freeze into solid walls of ice on the rocky bluffs that line the highways in Connecticut.
*I’m really, really sick of oatmeal, but unfortunately, its the only thing I have left to eat in the mornings. My gut is extra-sensitive in the mornings, and I cannot eat dairy, eggs, meat, or citrus. The only thing I can eat in the mornings is oatmeal, dry toast, and mild fruit. I’m sick of it.
*Somehow a post about random observations mutated into a rant about my IBS. I beg my reader’s pardons!
*We seem to have mice in the kitchen at work…there are mice droppings in the silverware drawers. Mice droppings are amazingly tiny, but undeniably poop-shaped.
*I have been on break a bit too long. Time to get back to work. Damn the clock!
