Ah, Mykella, if only I had the luxury of ignoring the rugrats. But I get paid for watching them in the summertime. That is, if “watching” means “keeping them from killing each other and/or burning down the house.” If not for the cash, I’d pretend to be an only child, really.
Here’s irony for you: A spam email with the subject line “Stop email SPAM” followed by random letters. It was even sorted into the spam folder, so you know it’s spam. That’s almost as bad as the pop-up ad I saw for a pop-up blocker.
Scary thing: This morning, I started singing “Oops, I Did It Again.” This horrid sing-along was brought on by a memory of my 8th grade banquet dance, which I was thinking about because of something else. My mind goes off on tangents all the time. Not a good thing when you’re trying to take a test. The thing is, I don’t even like Britney Spears. I’m annoyed that I know the words to that song (even the part with the Heart of the Ocean!) when I could use that memory space for more important things, like… yeah.
Mrs. Maus took off today with her friend Esther to go see her daughter and son-in-law. That means I get the day off tomorrow, which is good because I can snag some extra sleep, but bad because I won’t make any money. Also, there was a gorgeous bouquet on her kitchen table: a 38th anniversary present from her husband. My remark? “Wow. That’s a long time, and that’s a lot of flowers.”
I just reorganized my bookmarks. It was just so annoying looking for things and not finding them where they should logically be. And the default “links” folder is empty, like it should be. They’re all links. … I realize this makes me sound kind of crazy. But I am, so there.
I caught part of 200 Greatest Pop Culture Icons on VH1 while I was eating. (Chicken quesadilla, the only really good thing Taco Bell makes.) That’s a cool miniseries. I think I have a thing for VH1 documentaries. Anyway, I thought Harry Potter was #141, but that was Bruce Lee, so I must have missed it. But I saw Molly Ringwald, Prince, Tina Turner, Stevie Wonder, Bruce Willis, Ron Howard, and a bunch of others. The phone rang during the bit on Mr. Rogers. They have caricatures of each Icon before their segment; those are pretty spiffy. I skipped the last rerun in lieu of Friends. That show just never gets old, right, Rajni? :o)
If you haven’t voted yet in the Short Story Contest, please do. Instructions are in the sidebar. Apparently I’m doing quite well, although I think story #1 is in the lead, which is probably because it’s way up at the top of page, so people tend to read it more often.
I am going to go join more fanlistings, make new buttons (with slightly fuzzy text because I don’t have PSP), and generally waste time online. Yay.
