Five. The "just come back in April" edition.

I don't know what I'm trying to prove with this whole post-every-day-for-a-month thing. Oh, yeah. That I can FINISH SOMETHING. Blah blah blah. I should have challenged myself in February.

1. I'm having trouble sleeping. There, I admit it. I sleep too much, or not enough. I can't fall asleep or stay asleep. It doesn't help that I stay up late reading and wake to the fucking coffee grinder too early. I have bags under my eyes. Bags. Under my eyes. Making me look older than I am. Not cool.

2. A couple days ago I forgot my own age. I couldn't remember if I was 28 or 29. I had to USE MY FINGERS and count it out. And, still, 29 didn't sound right. Probably 'cause IT WASN'T. Today, a friend showed me how to COUNT CORRECTLY and, whew, I'm only 28. Thank goodness.


4. The bearings on my car are shot. I don't know what that means, but apparently that's why my car has been vibrating and making about as much noise as an 18-wheeler. I think this means I'm about to learn something new.

5. When I was younger, my dad used to make us play the What's New game. We'd all sit down for dinner and we'd each take a turn sharing something new. There was only one rule: it didn't count if anyone at the table had already heard it.

Some friends and I have been making a habit of going out to dinner. It's our new thing. We take turns picking new restaurants. We eat too much, laugh a lot. It's seriously great. Last Thursday, I made them play the What's New game. It was the best way I could think of to get those of us that work together to stop talking about it. Total success.

So, peeps, what's new?

  1. That game was a lot of fun. Well, it was fun to know what was new with you guys, because I realized that there is never anything new with me.Lolz. It's also an awesome way to not talk about work! God it's almost impossible not to! :)
