Welcome to random day at Meow!
I arrived at the office after four hours of off-site training yesterday to find (ta dah!) 41 emails. You have got to be kidding.
I have a habit calling people by terms of endearment, including a selected few co-workers and almost all friends. Here are current top sellers: sugar, honey, love, sweet, sweets, sweetheart, sug, chica, vato, sugar booger (for the extra-special or when you’ve pissed me off), ass-monkey, dumbass, nice lady, fine-ass mofo (I clearly love to say ‘ass’), dude (usually reserved for Tall Guy and his friends), Baby Fish Mouth*
“Mr. Toad” is the best part. Mom refers to all car journeys with me as “Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride”.
Mentally directed at Boss#1 circa 8:02 a.m.: Your crisis is not my crisis, crazy last-minute anal retentive lady. What I said: “I’ll bring those in ASAP.” Chickenshit.
I started the Cleo surprise top out of Knitty. It’s so lovely when you begin a project and realize that you already have the necessary needles and yarn. I originally went with the smaller cup sizing, figuring that my B cups would fit just fine, but when I was about halfway through the first triangle it became, ahem, abundantly clear that I’d be popping out. Control/alt/delete and oh-so frogalicious. The yarn is Berroco’s Cotton Twist in colors 8363 and 8371 (yarn is held doubled). The combo is pretty and subtle, a nice change after the stash-buster and its super-vibrancy.
Woohoo! I have a referral to see Therapist for free! Bow down to the mighty mental health insurance.
Random words trickling through my itty-bitty brain today:
vernacular, hypospadia, wallop, burble, furze, frangipan, flim-flam, quip, pasteurize, bleat, goatherd, drupe**, hedon, compile***, arithromancy, azimuth, plebe, hasten, flub.
Wait, furze? What the heck does furze mean?
*”’Baby talk’? That’s not a phrase!”
“Oh, but ‘baby fish mouth’ is sweeping the nation.”

**Drupe? That’s gotta be Sharon Olds brain candy.
***Hahahahaha. No, my training brain’s not in fifth gear, not at all. By the way, whoever designed the personnel database system I’m learning ought to be SHOT. No transparency at all. Lazy gits.
