Sunday Stealing

Around the House
Bedroom: what’s your sleep schedule? I don't really have one. And I should. I have a terrible habit of dozing off on my sofa after work, and then I wake up after midnight and can't get back to sleep. BAD GAL!
Kitchen: favorite comfort food? Lately I've been eating a lot of graham crackers.
Washroom: showers or baths? bubbles? bath bombs? Usually showers, but I have bubble bath on hand for those days when I want to enjoy a nice, long soak.
Closet: sum up your style in a few words. Jeans, t-shirts and pullovers.

Parlor: favorite party or board game? Scrabble.
Living room: what do you like to do with your family? Just catch up. We don't get together as a clan very often.
Dining room: favorite special occasion food? Prime rib.
Garden: favorite tree? flower? I love carnations. I know they're often dismissed as "filler flowers," but I think they're great. Such sturdy, colorful flowers.
Attic: what’s one thing you have a sentimental attachment to and you will never throw away? I treasure a ceramic cable car that belonged to my favorite grandpa.
Library: favorite book genre? I bounce between mysteries and biographies.
Office: if you could have any job in the world, what would it be? I'd like to be a pet sitter. Wouldn't it be great to be paid for being a crazy cat lady?
Guest room: have you been to a sleepover? if so, when was your first? do you like them? Lots of sleep overs when I was in junior high. I don't recall my first. But yes, they were great fun.
Foyer: do you like small gatherings, large parties, or one-on-one meetings? I like small gatherings.
Pantry: favorite meal to make? I love slapping a salmon filet onto my George Foreman grill. While it's sizzling, I make myself a salad. Then I tell myself what a healthy eater I am.
Laundry: favorite and least favorite chore? I have no favorite chores. Though I am good at laundry. Here's a tip -- go to a beauty supply store and buy a bottle of clarifying shampoo. It's great for removing food stains, grass and blood.
Garage: favorite mode of transportation? favorite car? I enjoy riding the rails. I'm a big fan of Amtrak.
Panic room: what was the most nerve-wracking experience you’ve had? I'm terrified every time I get on a plane (which I'm doing next week).
Powder room: do you wear makeup? if so, what one item can’t you live without? what’s your favorite look? I wear makeup, but I spend more time on my skin care regimen. As I get older, my goal is to wear less makeup. I think once we pass a certain age, it ages rather than enhances us.

Not Clicking

Saturday was a weird day.

It started with me going to the post office to take my mail off "hold." You see, I actually didn't lose my keys -- I just misplaced them when I was stoned -- so I can access my mailbox, after all.

Then I got my hair cut. Afterwards, my nephew and I got together for lunch. It was fine, but we never seemed to be on the same wave length, like we usually are. I got no real sense of how he was doing, and nothing that we discussed seemed to mutually spark our enthusiasm, like it usually does.

When I got home -- before 5:00 -- I fell asleep, even though the Cubs were playing the Cardinals!

Now, of course, I'm wide awake. It's 2:30 AM and I'm wide awake!

I think that Fentanyl messed me up more than I thought. Proving once again what I've known all along -- I'd be a failure as a drug addict.
