*humph day.

Ever have someone tell you something you don't want to hear, and all your synapses start misfiring at once? Your brain is calm, because it's practiced at denial, but because it's checked out, the rest of your body starts to self-destruct like a short-circuiting robot. You're all clammy and lumpy throated and upper-lip twitchy. And the whole time your brain's all, "Ooh! Pretty birds!"

Yeah, I had a morning like that.

So here are some things that did not make me panicky and whiny today:

1. strange and pretty jewels

2. blue skies

3. sleeping boys and wide-awake puppies

4. funnies

5. talent

6. hot shoes

7. chickens

8. irreverent board games

9. nerds

10. the face

Don't let it get you down. I have great faith in you!

And you can't say "the face" that's Stacey!

juarez family: thank you. and i had the "face" moniker first!

jeannieb205: indeed.

the life and times ... : no bingo! no one said "lipstick" or "moose." unfortunately.

anonymous: j loves the scratch. and thanks. i'm on the short list to live, provided i don't slowly SLOWLY do myself in with fajita side plates. which is yet to be seen. it's hard to motivate to do otherwise.

I am a work in progress. I perpetually need a hair cut. I'm totally devoted to my remarkable nieces and nephew. I am an elementary home cook and a magazine worker bee. (Please criticize my syntax and spelling in the comments.) I think my dog is hilarious. I like chicken and spicy things. I have difficulty being a grown-up. Left to my own devices, I will eat enormous amounts of cheese snacks of all kinds.
