Ten on Tuesday

Short on time this week, so let's keep them short.

1. I'm very happy that we only have one more day of Movember (if you don't know what that is, read this).
 Though I have to admit, this made me giggle.

2. I'm trying to eat better, and was appalled at how much stuff costs at Whole Foods. $8 for a tiny package of Organic Red Quinoa? Are you KIDDING ME? I could nearly buy two Peppermint Mochas for that pricetag!

3. I'm happy to report that not only did I manage to keep a relatively straight face for the whole wedding on Saturday (church service and all - though after seeing me arrive, the groom wandered over to inform me that I didn't need to worry, I wouldn't burst into flames), but I managed to do so in a skirt and nylons. I should get some sort of award for that shit.

4. I have had a headache nearly every day for a week. I'd like to know what the hell is up with that.

5. In spite of myself, I'm starting to get a little warm and fuzzy inside at the idea of Christmas - not because I like the day all that much, but I like the coloured lights, decorations in store windows and prevalence of red.

6. I'm annoyed with the interruption to my TV shows over the last week or so. I'm not sure whether to blame American Thanksgiving or Football, but since I don't participate in either of them, either way I'm pissed.

7. I just got my flu shot. You'd think, since I have diabetes and give myself several shots a day, that I'd be fine with needles. I am not. The ones they use for vaccinations and drawing blood are huge and scary and I don't like blood or the fact that they won't let me give the vaccination to myself. On the plus side this one barely hurt. On the minus side I now feel distinctly flu-ish.

 Actual size. I swear.

 Just to head off any of you who are against the flu shot and want to tell me about the ills of mercury. 
I eat canned tuna. I'm not afraid.

8. *sniff*

9. Started brainstorming for my Christmas shopping. Fortunately my family is small and doesn't care too much about Christmas, so I mainly only have to think of things for three people. It still feels daunting. I feel for the rest of you people with "real" families.

10. I made hot chocolate before going to get my flu shot, and thanks to my insulated travel mug, it's still warm even though I forgot about it. Also, I bought myself a treat for going through with the shot (though of course it doesn't feel worth it now):

  I'm off to blow my nose and feel sorry for myself now. See y'all later.


  1. i'm proud that you got a shot! i never get them... =/ oops.

  2. Haha! Thanks! Honestly I only did it cos it was free and the pharmacist told me they could do it right there in the store. If I had to pay or wait forever in a doctor's office full of real live sick people, I would have suffered through the flu instead!
