Do you know what really, really, chaps my hide? When people steal.
I bring bottled water to work with me. I buy a case of it at Costco, lug the damn thing in, and, knowing that people are just downright evil by nature, I hide it. I hide a few bottles in the back of my bottom desk drawer and the rest in a box. A box because it looks like something I’d keep old files in.
Recently someone figured it out and my stash has been depleted. I have no idea who’s been taking them, but it makes me really… sad. (And mad, but that’s a given.) I don’t think it’d bother me so much if they’d at least leave a note and say hey, I took a bottle of water, hope you don’t mind! ‘Cause, honestly peeps? I wouldn’t.
But this sneaky stealing behind my back really bothers me. Or maybe it’s just ‘cause that friggin’ case of water is so damn heavy. Or maybe it’s ‘cause now I know I can’t keep water here anymore, except for the few bottles I can squeeze into the bottom drawer. Either way, I’m pissed.
I don’t even care about the money! It’s five bucks for the case. Big deal. It’s the principal of the matter, damn it.
Man, I’m really steamed.
Okay, I’m thinking about starting Project 365. Come on, you’ve heard of it. Take a picture every day for an entire year? Except, for me, it’d be more like Project 245 ‘cause I never finish what I start. (Sigh.) In fact, I can’t believe I’ve maintained this here blog for as long as I have. Which means, now that I’ve said that, you’ll never hear from me again.
I kid! (I hope.)
So… Project 365. Anyone interested in starting it with me? I warn you now, I’ll probably let you down. I mean, I’ll try really hard not to, but here’s what’ll happen. I’ll jump off to a really great start. Then, after a few weeks (possibly just days), the photos will start to get all ho-hum. Then you’ll start to see a bunch of cat pictures. And I’ll tell you no, really, I just took these today! but really? I dug them out of my hard drive. And then I’ll go out of town for a few days and I’ll just pretend like the whole thing never happened. And maybe someone will say what about Project 365? And I’ll act like you’re crazy and what the heck are you talking about?
Eventually, I’ll have to change my name, my url, everything… pick up a new identity and start over. It’ll be like Blogger Protection Program.
And the kicker? One day, a few months into my new blog, I’ll think hey, I really want to try doing that 365 thing again.
And the madness will start all over. I’m awesome that way.
So, what do you say? Any takers?
Can we talk about Twilight again? Just for a moment? (Or an hour?)
I know I already posted this, but I can’t resist putting it up again. And talking it to death.
I hope I’m not setting myself up for disappointment, but I am so excited for this movie. (I know, shocking.) But a BIGGER BUDGET means better effects, right? I was worried about how they’d accomplish certain things in the second movie (especially after the first one, which we all know I LOVED, had some iffy special effects) but after seeing Jacob’s transformation in the preview? Oh, Holy Mother of God, why isn’t this movie out yet?!
I was talking to J on the phone last night and we were both squealing like girls when she said, “Oh, my God, Taylor Lautner (Jacob Black) looks SO HOT!”
To which I said, “Oh, my God, I KNOW! He looks freaking AMAZING!”
Then she said, in all seriousness, “He’s totally TOO YOUNG FOR YOU, but don’t worry, I won’t say that!”
Feeling like a cougar? Priceless.
So many of those brief scenes in the trailer look just how I’d pictured it in my mind. That’s important to me. I just hope that I’m not getting my hopes too high.
I only have LESS THAN SIX MONTHS to obsess about it.
