Wish I could take credit, but I can't. It was forwarded to me. Some of my co-workers have thought I wrote it too, because last year I wrote a story in the form of a Grinch poem, about a stolen Christmas tree. So, please, forward it on if you like!
Shalyne: My fun plans are moving this weekend, when I'm not working on Saturday. Should be interesting.
I actually have been eating well today. Hooray! I had a Nutrigrain bar for breakfast (3 points), and I went to the sushi stand for lunch and had 4 pieces of a California roll, chicken teriyaki, and double salad (instead of miso soup.) Yummy. Told ya, I'm back on track!
Rina: I couldn't sleep last night, either. I haven't slept well since the attacks and now I'm worried about the move, and about this public speaking thing I have to do tomorrow night. Our local theater is showing the Laramie Project all weekend, and holding 20-30 minute discussions about the play afterward. I'm on a panel tomorrow night with another journalist. He's from TV, so he's used to talking in front of a bunch of people. I'm not so good with that, so I'm terrified. I figure I can make it through a half-hour.
Because I have to work and move this weekend, I'll miss the blues and jazz festival going on Sat. But there's just no way. Sigh.
JenK: I've been thinking about dying my hair red but I'm being a wimp. My hair is probably like yours, it lightens up in the summer but then darkens in the fall and winter, so I end up looking like I have roots by no fault of my own. I've gotten it highlighted before, but now I'm wondering how it would work to play up another color. There's some reddish tint to my hair, especially in the darker winter months, and my mom's a redhead, so I thought it might look OK. If I do it, I think I'll have it professionally done so I don't screw it up!
Ugh ... cramps! Time for some ibuprofen. Maybe I can go home early today. All I have to do is tell my editor it's a female thing and he tells me to go home. It's quite amusing.
