weekend pickthrough- a little queasy edition.

10 07 2010

i don’t know what’s up with me this week. feeling exhausted, disoriented, and a little queasy. maybe the heat, humidity, some kind of virus (don’t you even think about suggesting preggo or i will cut you)? whatever it is, i’ve been finding myself passed out on my laptop more nights than not, with good post ideas and zero energy to write them. having hopes that the impending rain will bring some relief, and that i can get back to my old energy level sometime soon. otherwise, i’m going to have to start snorting adderall or something, and god knows what that would do to my budget.

i need one of these so that i can make my real life a little more facebook.

a surprisingly clever way to remember multiple passwords.

candy sprinkles? brandy alexander? i need some serious help coming up with a burlesque name if i’m going to compete in strut next month. or i can just crap out and use this random generator

i’m inspired! expect a forthcoming post on the enchantments of discount bakery.

first the candwich, and now this? is there anything that they aren’t canning these days? (um no, apparently not).

hands down the best article i’ve ever read about hostingĀ  your own garage sale.

cardamom and cornflakes? pop rocks and goji berries? it’s time to get chocomized.

p.s. the picture accompanying this post is actually from an educational coloring book. is it just me, or is that a little messed up?

thanks for the well wishes! it was an exceptionally great story- made me want to have a garage sale (even though i don’t have a garage, or a lawn, or anything much worth selling).

Its probably the heat, its been insane this week. I was actually feeling queasy myself last night and just blah. Hope you feel better soon.

thanks! one thing for sure, the heat is definitely not helping. i’m probably tired because it is near impossible to sleep through the night. i’ve been cozying up to a cold pack lately- the kind you put in coolers! very sad.

Weird, I’ve been feeling queasy and tired, too. I blame the internet.

maybe there’s something going around. you know, on the internet. i’m feeling less barfy today, but still really tired. maybe i need more slurpees?

i found wacky mac at hannaford tonight and thought of you! it’s by the mazo at the end of the pasta & sauce aisle closest to the check out. tada!

hannaford is for suckers! without double coupons, you actually have to pay for it, and thus it’s value is greatly diminished. but thank you for thinking of me!

It sounds like you did have a touch of a virus.

I GAVE you your burlesque name, Moxie Minx. Gotta problem with that? Fine, then, I’ll steal it back and have TWO burlesque names for myself.

no way! i’m currently thinking seriously about CANDY SPRINKLES. maybe the universe is telling me something?

CANDY CANDY CANDY! Definitely Candy something, or something Candy. Even candy-related would work. Peppermint Sprinkles? No, that sounds like a Strawberry Shortcake doll…
