I Know, I Know

Surprising no one, I'm three days behind on Blogtember. Let's quickly make that two days behind. Here is a self portrait of me from what was supposed to be Day 9:

Typical day at the office

I went through several iterations of this, because as you can see, my office has about the worst lighting in the world ever. I swear, my glasses are not superimposed onto my face, even though they kind of look like they are. I'm actually wearing them. Without them, I am practically blind. Not literally, but I would walk into a lot more things on a daily basis, and honestly, I already walk into plenty of stuff when I am wearing them. I do wear contacts, but only occasionally, because my eyeballs are apparently the weirdest shape ever (thanks, oblique astigmatism!) so they tend to fall out. My contacts, not my eyeballs. That would be a whole separate issue that I imagine would be far more disturbing.

Related: Did you know that if your eyeball comes out that you should wrap it in a cool, wet, paper towel and put it in a plastic bag? And no, it doesn't actually FALL out of your head (that's impossible) but it can become dislodged (ow?). Seriously, CNN has a whole article on what to do when body parts fall off.

Anyway, this is me, at my desk, in my office. I even managed to do my hair today and throw a minimal amount of make up on my face. Lucky you. :)

So that's Day 9. Day 10 deserves its own post, as it is "Write a public love letter to someone in your life. (It doesn't necessarily need to be romantic.)" so that will be coming later. And then today's actual post is about a memory I'd like to relive, so that will also be it's own post. It's post-a-palooza here today, apparently. I hope. Other things happening today.... MCAT SCORES!! ::cue dramatic music:: That's not until after 5, so I am trying really hard not to think about it and even harder not to excessively load and reload the AMCAS score page because there isn't going to be anything there until after 5 and just staring at it is giving me agita. 

I am about to head to lunch, but in the meantime, here are some ridiculous and lovely things from around the internet.

If you haven't heard of Caitlin Moran... I'm sorry. She's a wonderful, British, author and journalist who is smart and hilarious. Her book, How to Be a Woman is hysterical and thought-provoking, and you should definitely read it. She also writes for The Times of London, and she published this "Posthumous Advice for My Daughter" in July. You can't read it at The Times website unless you subscribe, but here it is reblogged by someone. I love the whole thing, but I especially liked this part:
“Second, always remember that, nine times out of ten, you probably aren’t having a full-on nervous breakdown – you just need a cup of tea and a biscuit. You’d be amazed how easily and repeatedly you can confuse the two. Get a big biscuit tin."

Note to self: More tea and biscuits. Less nervous breakdown feelings.

Here's another link, although I must warn you that it contains clowns. If you have coulrophobia, do not click. I am not going to be responsible for anyone else's anxiety today other than my own. That being said, the headline is, "Northhampton Clown Terrorizes English Town Just By Standing Around" and if that doesn't make you want to click on it, I don't know what will.

And finally, here is a two-legged cat rolling around on a porch:


Enjoy the rest of your Tuesday, everyone, and check back later to see some more posts from Blogtember!
