* The basketball shorts/knee length black wool socks/sandals wearing guy.....WHY? Do you not realize just how utterly ridiculous you look? You DO realize that the "cool" guy you are emulating only wore that outfit ONCE just to see how many idiots he could get to wear that combo. He was smart enough to realize that no girl would actually want to be seen in public with someone wearing this get up. Wake up and smell the coffee kid, you've been had.
*One of the things that I am relishing about MC being away at college is the ability to use the "big" laptop whenever I want! When he was home (before he got the laptop required for school), I mainly used the notebook
*The only other thing that I am relishing about MC being away - his bedroom and his bathroom are now totally spotless. Really. I can go in there and not freak out about what kind of animal might be trying to find it's way to
*I stopped at the drugstore (again) today to buy my very favorite eye shadow (L'Oreal #812 Smooth Latte) - only to discover that (again) they don't have it. This is like the millionth time I've tried to get it; only to be denied. I kid you not, this shadow is perfect for me. PERFECT I tell you! I'm living in fear that it has been discontinued. I bought something else, but even before I try it I know it won't be a good replacement. And this makes me sad.
*I wonder what in the hell is the purpose of spam comments. I mean, I kinda get it. Click the link and you either get a virus/porn/insert-whatever-evil-intent here. But c'mon already. Most of us bloggers are savvy enough to know to ignore you - and yet....here you still are. Go away.
*To have missed MC so much today that I actually tweeted this.....
I know it's too much to expect that MC call me every day from college but...would it hurt him to send me a text?

The only real communication I've had from him was on Friday. I
And then? The utter joy when I received a totally, unsolicited call from him this evening. He's doing well. He seems to love it. And? He's even eating his fruits and veggies.....or so he claims. And he then informed me that one of his professors spent nine years in prison for growing pot.....REALLY?!
*I've wondered about the new guy. I still like him. He still seems nice. But I have to wonder if he's got the spine that is needed in this particular position. In our environment, the litigators seem to get away with murder; while the business side is considered "not so important." I may have to clue him in to a few things.....such as I don't care if it IS budget time and you are being asked to cut, cut, cut. That is ONLY because the more YOU cut the more the litigators get to keep. *sigh* It ain't easy training new people.
So what about you? What bits of fluff can be found floating around in your brain?
