Just sitting here enjoying the view of I-90 and the fall foilage in south bellevue from my 4th floor office, while sipping water thru a straw, a process made possible by pinching my lips around the straw with my fingers. Yes, that’s right, i went to the dentist this morning. And now i’ve got a rubber face and a tendency to drool down my right cheek. Could i be more sexy?
It’s odd the things that cross your mind – and even stranger the parts of that you remember – when you’re doped up on nitrous oxide, lying flat on your back. I had so many interesting things i wanted to jot down while i was drifting in and out of dreamland this morning, so many remarkably profound thoughts and grand new epiphanies. Sadly, all i truly remember now that i’ve crossed back thru the mirror and left wonderland, is just that; i thought of some neat things and wished i could write them down. Don’t know what they were, just know i wanted to remember them. Kind of like tying a string around your finger so you won’t forget something, and then forgetting what the string was supposed to remind you of. I’ve actually done that – not with a string, per-se. But i’ve set something out for myself, usually in a half-awake stupor: “i’ll leave this pen on top of the alarm clock, so i remember to turn the oven off.” And then the next morning, i’m like “why is there a pen balanced so oddly on my alarm clock? Oh! I was supposed to remember to do something. What was is supposed to do? Huh. Oh, well.” Or something like that. Anyway, i guess you’re just going to have to do without my mush-faced musings today, as i can’t seem to remember anything provocative or witty or even an amusing anecdote. And why is there a pen balanced so oddly on my computer keyboard???
In other news, the Max is finally in the shop today (after several annoying delays), and i have my dark green maxima loaner. I should have my car back by thursday, friday at the latest, with a shiny new rear bumper. So no more parallel parking downtown… and i’m still not officially an employee at the bellevue club, but i hear thru the grapevine that they’re figuring they’re staffing out and will hopefully get back to me this week. In the meantime, i’m having ramen for lunch. What do you think – beef flavor today? That should be nice thru a straw…
What is with the universe lately, anyway? I think it’s trying to tell me something… that i need to win the lottery.
So my car was rear-ended today, not too serious, but enough to make me think taking the bus to work might not be such a bad idea. Surrounding my car with bumper-car-style rubber guards also crossed my mind. Anyway, I already have an estimate for about 1400, and the kid’s dad called me and wants to pay the body shop directly and get me a rental car. Which is cool, i guess.
So then i get home tonight, and i’m flipping thru tv, and i see frasier get in a car accident and miss his flight. But then on that 70’s show, they went to chicago and went disco dancing. Not sure what that’s supposed to tell me. I think the universe might have it’s signals mixed… In any case, i bought a mega-millions lottery ticket with the last dollar in my wallet. Drawing is friday nite. So i could either have a really great weekend, or just a weekend. We’ll let the universe make that call, eh?
