I’m Still Here!

Sorry for the lack of posting (that is a popular way to start a blog).

Work has been exceptionally stressful. Way more stressful than a retail job should be. This is not good because I am a stress eater, and I realize now that I was consuming large amounts of sugar (my drug of choice). So, this week I have 2 days off in a row (a rarity in retail) and what happens on the second day? Bang!!!!! The universe hits me with a monster head cold or flu or walking pneumonia — I can’t tell the difference between any of these! Subconsciously, I must have know that this was on the horizon because on the way home from work before my days off I picked up the fixings for lentil vegetable soup (I never crave soup). The good news is that I haven’t had any sugar since Friday. In fact I don’t even want to eat the soup. I am so wore down that I just want to be fed intravenously!!

So, more book posts are coming and even some sewing posts. Still not in the mood to sew, but I am going to NYC in a couple weeks to see the Color Purple before Fantasia takes her last bow in February (have to go now because in retail you can’t have any time off between Thanksgiving and New Years), and I have no clothes!! I mean that literally. My wardrobe looks like the clothes of a Starbucks barista (cuz that is our dress code) – khakis and black polo shirts. I don’t know how to dress that up. I don’t even have a little black dress or a skirt that fits, so I gotta get sewing.

Book posts coming up – Them by Nathan McCall, I Am America, And So Can You by Stephen Colbert and a couple others.

Stay with me y’all!!!! (That’s from me & Britney S.)

  1. i’ve been suffering as well with a nasty cold/flu/walking pneumonia thing, too. the problem is that going to the doctor is really expensive here (annoyingly, it’s free if you’re european) so i’ve put it off but i might have to break down b/c i keep having these random horrible coughing attacks. an adventure in a big city looms on the horizon (for me as well as you) so it remains to be seen how much money is left after that trip. we will have to trade details when i am home at the holidays. in the meantime, if you don’t want to keep that stephen colbert book, i know someone who will take it off your hands… me! šŸ˜‰

  2. Your sick post, sounded a little like Liz’s Rock Star Energy Drink post. Did you take a breath. LOLI understand how busy, stressful days can keep you away. Just remember you are missed. I am so sad that I won’t be with you guys in NYC. But Jesse L. Martin??!! What do you find appealing about him? I am curious.

  3. I don’t know why I love him. Maybe because he looks like a normal guy. And he is tall. And he can sing. Never been one for the pretty boys. I met Shemar Moore once and couldn’t even look him in the eye, cuz he really is just that pretty in real life!

    You better call on your way to NYC…’cause you have to “pass” Philly. Knowing how much you hate Philly, I definitely don’t expect you to stop. Just in case “you forget”, have a GREAT time and enjoy the time off. THE HOLIDAYS ARE COMING!!
