This 'n' That
Saturday, May 24th, 2008

I’m feeling tired, grumpy. Certainly don’t want to write. But I’ve watched all my TIVO’d shows and don’t have any Monk, Psych, House, Reaper, or Jimmy Neutron to watch that I haven’t already seen.

I think I’m wanting to get out, take a trip, snap some pics of something that could amuse me. That’s what I get for letting my social calendar fill up over the last few months. I’ve forgotten the joys of living like a hermit. Uh huh, there are too joys!!

Like never having to take a bath just to be polite around others. I prefer to take mine every other day—my hair and skin feel much better, I save water-soap-electricity (so its also good for the environment). But if I’m going to be around anyone else, I don’t want to worry about sniffing pits first. Gawd, can’t believe I just admitted that! Whore baths do just fine when it’s just me and computer.

Or like never hearing the jangle of an alarm clock. I can sleep whenever I’m tired—and if I never look out the windows, I won’t be able to judge when it’s daylight so my body will be totally in control. Heady thought!

The only problem with being a hermit is having to cook. Can’t. Won’t learn. Which means, my mom and daughter still have ways to lure me out of my cave every now and then.

Oh, before I forget as I sit here zoning in front of my screen, I’ll be playing at Ellora’s Cave all day tomorrow and will run a contest from this blog. So, be sure to come back tomorrow!

    I think we’re channeling each other. *cackle* I live for my time off from the Evil Day Job so I can hide in my bedroom and write. Only here lately, I can’t seem to get anything written… Which is why I’m checking blogs instead of writing this morning.

    Hey there, Shayla!
    We need another field trip. Something to recharge with. Something spooky.

    Let me say, as someone who sits close to you during meetings and say, bachelor auctions, I appreciate the baths and brushed teeth! LOL

    You know the way to HS when you get bored! We’ll go do the new Gangster Museum 😀

    This week has been bad for everyone I think. I have so much writing to do for my graduate school assignments and just spent the last hour reading blogs and replying to emial. *Sigh* Since I will be at my computer all tomorrow I will be by the Cave!

    Sorry you’re so buried!! See you tomorrow. *hugs*

    😀 “Whore baths”, LOL, never heard it called that before. I’ll have to remember that one.

    I’m thinking about Tyra Banks show where she asked Janet Jackson whether she bathed every day. Janet called them “bird baths”–Tyra said her mother called them “whore baths”–guess which one I liked better! 🙂
