I have three hours left at a job where I have virtually no responsibilities other than sitting at a desk all day. I’ve had enough of Facebook and Stumbleupon and don’t feel like starting a new book just yet, so the only option left is to try to piece together some sort of terrible blog to break up the monotony of the day.
Item 1. Today my car hit 88,888 miles. It was pretty cool. I took a picture of the odometer with my phone, and it was even cooler that I didn’t get into an accident while doing so.
Item 2. Once I got to work, I pulled up the picture to give it a second look. At that point, I discovered that my POS, 3+ year-old phone had taken 175 pictures of the inside of my purse. Nice.
Item 3. I have a love/hate relationship with the Kinnelon library because every single time I work here, there is some sort of dessert product in the staff room. Today I went downstairs for my yogurt/granola/strawberries/banana Health Fest lunch, only to find a huge plate of leftover chocolate cake sitting on the table. Every day of work is an exercise in willpower. I am proud to say I did not indulge in any cake today.
Item 4. I had a dream that I was in A&P, in the self check-out line. I had just scanned all of my groceries and the total came to $92. I went to bag some of the stuff and then went back to the kiosk to pay, only to find that the woman behind me had already started scanning her stuff. So, I grabbed my bags and left without paying. As I was leaving I was worried that the store employees would come after me, but they didn’t. I felt guilty about stealing the groceries but also torn because, well, $92 is a hefty bill.
Item 5. Last week, I was lucky enough to be in the car during an episode of WNYC’s Radiolab, which hasn’t happened in about a year and was a real treat! The show was very interesting; here is a link if you’re interested: Limits. Enjoy!
