Lord, I was born a rambling (wo)man.
I tend to ramble. Not so much in my speech or in my travels, but in my mind. Here’s what’s gone through my head in the last few minutes:
1) My pinky finger hurts. (Also known as a “finky” in Eugene language.)
I gave myself a doozy of a paper cut today as I was trying to steadfastly recycle all of my paper, cardboard, bottles and cans. A thin piece of cardboard had it out for me. It drew blood. A lot of blood for a paper cut. I didn’t have anything to clean my cut with so I poured some hand sanitizer over it. BOY that did the trick. I had to squeeze my steering wheel with all my might to keep from yelling. Thankfully, car inspection lady who also works at the waste management center was not there this time to witness it.
2) I’m hungry.
I was perusing some food blogs today and came across a game-changing recipe that had to do with French fries, parmesan cheese and some sort of chipotle lime dip. It sounded outrageously delicious. I was planning on going for a brisk walk at the time and was seriously tempted to ditch those plans in favor of making the fries, but I held it together and stuck to my exercise plan.
That, and I didn’t have any potatoes.
I’m so disciplined.
3) I love accents.
Having lived in Boston for 13 years, I had a lot of exposure to extreme Boston accents, though I never had one myself. I don’t know what comes over me, but every now and then I think of words in a Boston accent. Kind of like when you learn a second language and think of words in that language, except not exactly. Anyway, I grabbed my loofah in the shower this evening and cracked myself up thinking of how this would be called a “loofer” in a Boston accent.
4) I need to replace my watch battery.
My watch battery is nearly dead. Not completely dead, because the time does change, just at a fraction of real time. My watch currently reads 2:37PM and indicates that it’s the 5th of the month. I know I’m on slow time here in Nashville, but not that slow.
Despite my watch being temporarily useless, I continue to wear it as a reminder to go get the battery replaced. I have continued to forget to get the battery replaced for the past week now. And I also continue to forget that my watch is not functioning properly and consequently find myself staring at my wrist confused most of the day.
I think I need my memory replaced as well.
5) The sunsets here are so pretty.
I never tire of watching (and photographing) the sunset.
It makes me realize that I should stop thinking so much.
Don’t pay me no mind,
That’s why I think reading the mind of other people would be a curse and not a gift and someone who could read the minds would certainly end up in a psychiatric institution. The photos of the sunset are beautiful. 🙂
Wow! Beautiful photos. I think random thoughts comes with being a woman…we’re so versatile. 🙂
thanks! yes, I think you’re onto something!
Every once in a while, my 12-year-old mentions how her brain tends to ramble from thought to thought in what to her is a really cool progression of dissimilarity. She always sounds pretty impressed with herself when she mentions it.
You should be impressed with yourself.
You made me giggle on some of your rambles 🙂 I wear my watch too, even though the battery is dead. Fun post!
haha thanks! I STILL haven’t gotten it fixed!
