there's a joke in there somewhere

I haven't listed in awhile, so this is going to be a recap of the past few days in list formation. Grab a cup of tea or whatever and enjoy. Laugh, cry, close the window...whatever.
  • I had 100 Valentine cards made, but I didn't sell them all. I'm a little disappointed, but it was still a successful day. I will have plenty of cards ready for next year.
  • I try to keep things on a positive note.
  • A piece of heart confetti fell out of my boobs. I have no idea where it came from.
  • That awkward moment when you have lunch with a friend of the opposite sex on Valentine's Day and the server makes a comment assuming you are dating. *gwoss*
  • It was good to have lunch and shoot the shit with him though. 
  • (from Q&A a day 5 Year Journal) Write down your cure for a broken heart. - (my answer) Nutella Whipped Cream and Hip Hop.
  • On a whim I bought the Cream Soda blush from the Archie's Girls collection from MAC. I felt like I worked hard over the last week on all those Valentine cards. That's how I justified the purchase.
  • Sometimes you have to spoil yourself. That's a few dollars less for CaliFund. I'm okay with that.
  • Went to see A Good Day to Die Hard with friends on Friday. It was good. Shorter than I thought it'd be.
  • Five dollars for a freaking ICEE at the movies. It was so good though.
  • After the movies we drove around Indianapolis in search of food. I devoured a whole pizza from 3 Wisemen in like 15 minutes. It was THAT good.
  • I spent the rest of the evening making a coupon book for a client as a last minute Valentine's Day gift. It turned out great. He loved it and now I have a few more ideas for cards and products.
  • I love custom projects and I love it more when the client loves the result. I'm usually nervous that the client won't like what I've put together for them.
  • I don't understand how no one knew that a meteor was that close to the earth.
  • I got an awesome little package in the mail from Angela of Please Mommy No More Daddies for Valentine's Day.
  • A little girl at worked hugged me and then told me she loved me. It was kinda cute. I don't dislike children, but I'm not a big fan just yet either.
  • This comes from not having my own kids and not being around younger kids as a kid/teen/adult. That's my guess. 
  • I was 20 the first time I held a baby. The baby was 10 days old. Talk about nervous.
  • I also coaxed a child who got away from his mother back into our store so we could find his mother. 
  • Saturday night was spent at Dre Day hanging out with my friend stamping hands while she took all the money. We had some yummy cheesecake and bread pudding.
  • My friend brought me back R2D2 ears from Disneyland. The stipulation was that I had to get back into photography. I can dig it. I had planned to buy these ears in April when I go to Disney and now I don't have to. Woo!!!
  • I can't wait for California.
  • I want a puppy...and a kitten.
  • I understand why some customers think I'm a supervisor at work. I carry myself in that manner sometimes. I might need to step back from that.
  • On the way home from work on the bus a 400 lb man tipped over on his scooter and fell on me. In my lap and on my wrists.
  • The bus driver didn't bother to ask if I was okay. The man who fell said he was okay and said that the bus driver should make sure I was okay. She still didn't bother to see if I was okay. 
  • I AM okay. My wrist hurts a little.
  • I feel like there is a joke in here somewhere about men falling for me or something. I'll eventually find it.
  • After we got the man back on his scooter a friend texted me to see if I was okay. Apparently he got on the bus when I was napping and missed me until he saw the accident occur.
  • He treated me to dinner and we made jokes about the accident the rest of the evening.
  • I haven't eaten meat in 17 days. People think I'm nuts.
  • Then again any time I do any kind of food challenge and give something up people tend to think I'm nuts.
  • I like to think I have good will power and that I'm strong.
  • Now if I could only do this with working out.
  • It's so nice to have my sewing table back. Now I just need to do some vacuuming to get all the bits of paper off the carpet.
  • Sometimes it's like...I swear this shit only happens to me.
