Am Still Not Dead (Plus 5 Things I Didn’t Accomplish Sunday)

I would like to (again) aplogize for not stopping by. I’m skimming your posts, I promise!

This week is probably going to kill me. I’m already 25% dead, but only 20% into my workweek! Obviously things need to improve.

Yesterday I spent the day in extreme laziness.  I slept in. I lounged. I surfed. I worked for about 2 hours.

Five Things I Did Not Accomplish Yesterday

  1. Laundry
  2. Writing Interview Questions As Promised
  3. Shoe Porn Research (usually I am able to force myself into this, yesterday? not so much…and I even had a special request!) (Also it took me three tries to spell porn correctly. Tries 1 & 2: pron & poon….hee!)
  4. Sew the buttons on my sad coat.
  5. Exercise

And, because I’m feeling listy – five things I hate about Monday mornings

  1. The Monday part
  2. Scraping my windows
  3. People who can’t merge
  4. Not having coffee already made when I’m rushing out of the house
  5. Other people

(My list was much longer this morning, when I was driving in to work, but I am apparently in a much better mood now, and have forgotten most of the things I hate – which is why I went with thing #5 – I figured that should pretty much cover anything I’ve forgotten.)

I will do my best to have shoe porn on Wednesday – especially since I now have TWO requests….and hopefully will not be dead Thursday afternoon. I am sticking with my goal of 5 workouts this week (Sunday-Saturday), and since I skipped yesterday, I suppose I should go home & exercise or something.

  1. Is it possible to request shoe porn for a new public transportation commuter who needs to balance suits and business attire with comfortable shoes made for lots of walking? What a chaos this new way of travel is creating on my wardrobe and desire for cute, high heeled shoes! However, it is making me feel more active and inspired to some day soon start running again…maybe.

    • You can totally request shoe porn! I will put you in the queue.

      I just was going to suggest that when I start running with the Cheetah in March on Friday lunch hours that you join us. Then I remembered that might not be feasible for you. I hope the new job is going better this week.

  2. Scraping windows? What is this “scraping windows” of which you speak? 🙂

    • I know! I mean, I love Portland, but there are days (like yesterday, with the window scraping – and today, with the snow – AGAIN) that I really, really, really miss SoCal. And palm trees. And not owning an ice scraper (I did have gloves, for those chilly days when it was in the low 50s, of course).

  3. This is a bad Monday for me too and I haven’t even left the house. Most of the time I don’t like mornings and it is torture to try to deal with external stimuli on those days. Good work hanging in there!

    • I can deal with mornings most days, but Mondays are just hard…especially since I had, until recently, been NOT working on Mondays.

  4. well, don’t do anything crazy like DIE on us, for goodness sake! monday mornings suck regardless of all efforts to the contrary. i love the idea of making lists of things i haven’t accomplished! i could go on for days and days, if that’s the topic. i was trying to figure out what to write about on my blog, but now i think i have it!! hang in there – the week will be over before you know it.

    • I probably won’t DIE! (What, me exaggerate?)

      I actually could’ve put a LOT more things on my list of non-accomplishments…..but was pressed for time. 🙂

  5. Oh man – it’s like your top five – if you made it ten I could pretend that John Cusack was reading it to me. . . .

    • Nice try, Sarah. but Gazelle’s got it right here. Cusack’s label in “High Fidelity” was called Top 5 Records. Still…. awesome movie reference! it’s a real music lovers flick. Am i miserable because I listen to pop music, or do I listen to pop music because I’m miserable?

    • 6. When I are applying deodorant and it breaks off, scraping my armpit & rendering the deodorant both dirty (I guess I should wash the bathroom floor more) and unusable.
      7. When I have inappropriate dreams about someone I work with & see often that I would never have, in a million years, thought of in THAT WAY.
      8. Getting to the bus stop just in time to watch it pull away (happened TWICE this morning).
      9. Sitting down on the bus & realizing that I’ve sat next to an irregular bather, but not wanting to seem rude….so I sit there. Holding my breath.
      10. Feeling self conscious at the gym for no good reason other than I ate too much pizza Saturday night.

      Remind me to tell you the story of how I hung out with saw John Cusack in my neighborhood.

  6. i too hate other people now, after driving around atlanta yesterday. i left the office about 6 pm, and the freeway was still at a standstill. other people suck.

    • I just don’t understand why people as a group have some weird thing that causes them to SUCK! (I didn’t drive today, so I’m not quite as angry about drivers – more about non-bathers today.)

  7. Who doesn’t hate mondays!?! Ohhh Justin will love the John Cusack stuff…that is his man crush =).

    You’re going to run on Fridays during work? Am I not invited? (insert, sad, pouty face)

    Great work today! Sorry we didn’t get to chat much…work is killing us all.

    • Once I go back to my 4-day workweek, I won’t be working on Fridays, so I’m going trail running mid-day at my former place of employment. You are certainly welcome to join us!
